Cop Who Beat Kelly Thomas to Death Wants Americans to Pay Him $130,000.00

FULLERTON — Jay Cicinelli, one of the police officers who beat Kelly Thomas to death, angered Californians last week when he announced that he wanted his job back.

RT has now reported that he was already being paid $40,000.00 even after he killed Kelly Thomas and all throughout the trial.

He was already bringing home $40,000 after killing Thomas and throughout the trial. Now he wants even more cash from hard-working Americans. Nearly $130,000/yr if he gets his job back.

He was already bringing home $40,000 after killing Thomas and throughout the trial. Now he wants even more cash from hard-working Americans. Nearly $130,000/yr if he gets his job back.

In 1996, a citizen attempted to assassinate Cicinelli after being pulled over for a traffic stop. Cicinelli was shot multiple times and lost his left eye.

The citizen was given life in prison, and Cicinelli agreed to retire early from the LAPD, for whom he worked at the time.

The City of Los Angeles agreed to give him $40,000.00 every year as a pension, funded by American taxpayers. It turns out that he continued receiving this money despite the charges brought against him for killing Kelly Thomas.




Instead of fully “retiring” from law enforcement he went and got a job with the Fullerton Police Department.

Once there he eventually was bringing home $88,544.00 a year from taxpayers, in addition to the $40,000.00 he was already taking every year.

If Cicinelli is able to get his job back with the FPD with his same payments, he’d be taking a combined total of around $130,000.00 every year fr0m Americans who know him as a murderer.

Cicinelli and Ramos were both found “not guilty” last week despite video footage showing them beat Kelly Thomas to death. That footage along with updates can be found here.

    he just got a free pass to kill again because of what happen to him and like the rest of his low life, scum buddies, he will get away with it .

  • Alexander Vucelic

    The $40,000 is tax free. Note the LAPD offered him a desk job because they wanted him off the street. There is a host of back room deals and not-quite-illegal activities surrounding his $40,000 disability payments and subsequent hire by FPD.

    Unraveling this scandal should make some investigative journalist a national celebrity. This is bigger than just one murderous cop – it reaches way up into the leadership of the LAPD and FPD.

    • Greg S.

      Well, we all know the LAPD don’t exactly have a “spotless record”.

    Cicinelli is what i call the mentally ill with badge. They need to nut check that nazi and STOP HANDING BADGES TO THE MENTALLY ILL!!!

    • Jim

      There is Mentally ill and then there is MENTALLY ILL BY CHOICE. These cops had a choice. THEY thought no one was watching. THEN they beat this guy, each time saying “stop resisting”. Because as we all KNOW, that makes it ok for a cop to beat a man to death who was screaming for his father, saying “sorry”

    • elizabeth layton

      Nazi,Nazi,Nazi….The German orpo,krpipo and gestapo treated the German people with great respect and dignity. The National Socialists were fighting the very jew communist system we are living in today.Why do you think we had the lend-lease act with the Soviets? That in itself was an act of war. Do some real research, and quit believing the jewish owned hollywood lies..

    I hope the American people can get to him. They need to understand fear of the people.

    • LegitimateConcern

      Yeah, but the people are too afraid to stand up anymore, they’re only concerned about themselves. It’s sad to see this happening.

    • elizabeth layton

      Ha ha..Are you kidding me..The Stuper bowl is coming up. anyway most of the dumbed down amerikans are too stupid to even realize that their country has been taken over by dual citizen jewish bolsheviks and even if they did they’re too fat and lazy to do anything about it…

        @Elizabeth Layton, People like you ARE the problem with this country def. not the solution. I really hope you live in a country far far away from the U.S. because you don’y have any respect for our country or the people in it. Anyone that think’s the holocaust was made up by so-called hollywood jew’s has a deep rooted troubled mind!!!

        • Garnette

          Well not to get into the middle of this but it was a surprise to me to find out just how many of our high placed government officials/etc have dual citizenship and take a guess what country… check it out. As far as I’m concerned that isn’t right.

  • Cl4tgp

    Not guilty ? WTF !?! The more crap like this is see the more of a proponent of vigilante justice I’m becoming. Someone needs to start to police the police.

  • michael92064

    This is not uncommon. Disability retirement pays more. The Unions work it to be very generous and not followed up. Some call it “Chiefs disease”. They get a disability shortly before a planned retirement.

    • waltinseattle

      disability has no withholding so takehome is better than when working. retirement is based on…..bingo….takehome!!!

    • mysty

    • Lysdexic

      Noone stood around filming – it was a stationary security camera that caught it on tape. But you’re right – fuck the 6!! cops who helped beat this man to death. All should have been charges as accessories.

    American shame………….

  • Jim

    I hope one day, someone beats him blind in his other eye.

  • John

    Just another glaring example of police departments all around the country that have gone rogue and continue to victimize the public. We all can do more to hold these people liable for their actions by imposing jail time and cancelling all benefits. This has gone on far too long.

  • elizabeth layton

    You’re missing a main point here… Kelly was raised by one of these overbearing, controlling psychos, hence his mental and assumed drug problems..Now the pig who made this poor man what he was is looking to profit from his death. I’ve heard his lame excuse as to why his son was homeless and without help, but I don’t believe it.. If he had been a fraction as proactive in his sons life as in his death. His son would still be alive. I have 2 sons, and I have yet to see a single tear from this X-pig. Although he is not my son, I find myself fighting back tears, and I have heard the story a thousand times……

    • Garnette

      elizabeth layton I have to say you look mighty buff in your picture 😉

      you do have a point there if you’re talking about the family getting a wrongful death settlement over this. The guy was raised by a cop and he did have issues and live out on the street as an adult.. How those two things connect it’s hard to know for sure. I guess the important thing in MY mind is for Kelly Thomas to get justice.

      • elizabeth layton

        My husband (in the pic) couldn’t or wouldn’t ever let one of our sons live the way Kelly had to, it would kill him.They are 19 & 21 still living at home. Mr.Thomas the cop had the best insurance taxpayers money could buy. Which make me wonder exactly what kind of man he was? Personally, I don’t like him, but I agree with you 100%, this is about Kelly. Our hearts go out to him….

  • James Michael

    I got a payment for him. Tell him to come collect it…. Just make sure he knows he wont make it home, the murdering, terrorist, treasonous psychopath. This if this scumbag got a dime from the state, or city they would lose all tax payment from me, until justice was really served. 1st degree murderer and gets away scott free, because of the criminals on the BAR. There is a storm brewing very quickly and the badged and armed criminals, are not going to like it when the lightning strikes…

  • nunuvurbswax

    whoever wrote this article needs to learn what an assassination is. it is not a random attempt to kill a police officer that pulls you over, that is simply murder. an assassination assumes planning and a specific target. please don’t blow this man’s past hardships out of proportion by needing to throw a scary sounding word into your article.

    • The AntiMan

      Too bad the guy didn’t succeed.

  • AJ75

    I have it for him right here. Neatly stacked. Swing by anytime. Lost my job for smoking a joint. You really had to put in the extra effort to beat a man to death, so you deserve it.

  • hoorrahhh

    Nazi nazi nazi

  • Ybrik222

    Think about it for just TWO GODDAMNED SECONDS. When you’re being charged with a crime, you’re innocent until proven guilty. Thus, it makes no sense for ANYONE to have their livelihood taken away UNTIL they have been CONVICTED. Look, the police state is a real problem, but by spreading misinformation and refusing to comprehend anything, you’re hurting the cause!

  • Gobby

    So this one eyed brutal wanker thinks he is good enough to be a cop? fuck him I would shite my pants if this corrupt bastard ever pulled me over.
