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.
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.
