Ron Thomas

The police beating of Kelly Thomas and the subsequent not-guilty verdict has left Steven Greenhut a cynic. We all know there are bad apples in every profession. But one can't have it both ways. This incident either was the result of rogue behavior by officers, as the DA alleged, or is acceptable police procedure, as the defendants claimed. Greenhut says this court decision effectively means the latter.
