Today two ex-police officers were found not guilty in the 2011 beating death of a mentally ill homeless man.

Kelly Thomas, a 37-year-old homeless man with schizophrenia, was approached by Fullerton police who were responding to a vandalism call on the night of July 5.

A 33-minute surveillance camera video caught the entire confrontation.
