These guys have got to be the ugliest cops I've ever seen. So they beat to death a defendless homeless man to make up for their ugliness. I can't believe they're getting off this easy. FIRED that's nothing compared to what they deserve.

OMFG a US of American citizen, a human being is dead. As a result of some bored or pissed off guys with badges and hand guns, who are concerned they might have to fill out an employment applacation to another police dept or government agency. All thanks to a DA who couldnt get an conviction with blantent evidance. Now if it wasnt cops doing it "I mean people who dont work hand-n-hand with the local DA office and Judges" the outcome would be very differant.

Its a shame the person who shot VJay Cicinelli ran out of bullets. Maybe this homeless guy wopuld still be alive. IS this why thet are called 'pigs'?

Firing is not enough--they should be strip of their pension--all public/civil service benefits! And if you are sued in civil court they should be held personally liable! That kind of callous behavior is criminal--AND cops can be of the criminal mind!

Just fired!? Oh poor guys! What ever will they do now? This is sick. That man didn't do anything to deserve any abuse. That first cop.... The Pillsbury doughboy, is fully to blame!

I often wonder how human beings can be so cruel to animals & abuse & shoot them. I wonder no longer when I see human beings torture & kill other human beings in a moment of high emotion & anger. I respect the police, their lives are on the line. But I don't think they are screened carefully enough. Some have emotional problems, prejudices & perverse sexual proclivities , even S&M tendencies & abusing others gives them a sexual rush from the power & control under the legal cover of their badge. Some of them need to be fired, some disciplined & some arrested, tried, convicted & jailed or given the death penalty.

Shocking story...this poor man had medical problems and needed understanding....not beaten to death by the people sworn to protect.....As Johan said....they are murderers and no badge can hide that.
