Devoreflyer: Thanks for the info and taking the time to post it. I am going to pass on the site to some of my Special Ed co-workers. :) Thanks again.
what was the point of the one cop beating Kelly with his mag lite when they already had him down on the ground, and to keep beating him after he stopped saying anything or even making any noise, which one is worse Rodney King beating or this one. Question is where was the video taken from? I must have missed that one!

Does that warrant the beat down that he got? Probably not, but at least there was a hypothetical reason on why he received his beat down.
So, I think the Kelly case is much worse, quite simply because Rodney is still out getting DUIs, crashing into vehicles and participating in Celebrity Rehab.
Kelly, on the other hand, has left this earth.

Here you go Darkshadow. These two are going to trial and hopefully justice will not be blind. Link to the outcome of the hearing.

I'm surprised we haven't had a change of venue already.
Simi Valley is nice this time of year, right? ;-)
Whole situation could have been avoided with a simple LVNR.
I assume Fullerton is certified. Most P.O.S.T. academies teach the technique...
If i'm not mistaken they were beating him with the taser gun and not a flash light. Apparently, 4 tases wasn't enough so his only other option was to beat him in the face with it. That taser gun is now evidence wiht Kelly's blood all over it. What the video doesn't show is that Kelly's face getting hammered on a street curb. So, he face was already getting smashed in before they decided to add a few shots to the head with the taser gun. Hence the pics. The funny thing is that nothing was ever found and he wasn't guily of anything. This guy lost his life and for what????
