'Mind' of a 'Normal' Statist Sociopath; Ramos's Lawyer: Kelly Thomas @ fault for his OWN Death!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Thu, 08/23/2012 - 16:56
Just when you thought you've heard it all from lunatic statists, then comes this:

The attorney for former Fullerton Police Department officer Manuel Ramos attempted to have his client's charges dismissed yesterday by arguing that Kelly Thomas, the homeless man Ramos helped beat to death, was asking for it:
Seeking to have charges dismissed against a Fullerton police officer in the death of a mentally ill homeless man, his attorney contends in a motion filed Tuesday that Kelly Thomas could "have avoided a physical altercation" by simply complying with the commands of the officer who wanted to take him into custody.
Defense attorney John Barnett in his filing just days before his client Manuel Ramos is due back in court argues Ramos' action did not cause Thomas' death.
When a "recalcitrant" Thomas did not comply, Ramos was entitled to use force and the threat of force to complete his arrest, Barnett contended in his 80-page motion.
"Rather than use actual force, Officer Ramos employed a lawful, conditional threat, to use force," he wrote. "The death of Kelly Thomas was not the natural and probable consequence of that lawful threat."
"What happened (during the encounter) did not and could not constitute a crime," Barnett said.
That "Lawful, conditional threat"?
Sure, Kelly's magic fist pummeled his own face and choked his own throat to death.
Hm... here I thought, even to these degenerate statist sickos, the notion that a woman who dresses alluringly is NOT 'asking to be raped,' was a long foregone 'legal' conclusion. No??
Yes! Govt 'values' your life! Um... except when it doesn't... like EVERY SINGLE TIME??
