Fullerton cops fired over Kelly Thomas’ death are trying to get their jobs back

Actually, it’s doubtful that they really want their jobs back. More likely, they just want a lot of money from the city. As reported in the Orange County Register:

Nearly seven years after transient Kelly Thomas was killed in an encounter with police, two former officers involved in the incident are waging an ongoing legal battle to get their jobs back with the Fullerton Police Department in addition to retroactive pay.

An Orange County Superior Court judge will decide whether the Fullerton City Council was unconstitutionally biased when it voted to fire Officers Jay Cicinelli and Joseph Wolfe, who were both terminated in 2012 for their confrontation with Thomas at the Fullerton Transportation Center on July 5, 2011.
