Former Fullerton Cop Manuel Ramos Arrested for Domestic Violence

Manuel Ramos, one of two cops acquitted last year in the [__beating death of Kelly Thomas,__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2015/07/four-year-anniversary-of-the-murder-of-kelly-thomas-still-no-justice/) was arrested last month for domestic violence, which should come as a surprise to nobody considering he is a proven thug with violent tendencies.

A cop who told a helpless homeless man, “You see these fists? They are getting ready to fuck you up,” before proceeding with his threat that left the man dead.

So we can only imagine what he did to the woman he is accused of abusing.

The domestic violence arrest took place July 16 by Fullerton police, which explains why it is only coming to light now. And only because word of the arrest kept reaching us here at PINAC and apparently other news agencies, prompting us to start asking questions.

First with the story was [__ABC 7__](http://abc7.com/news/former-oc-cop-acquitted-in-kelly-thomas-trial-arrested-for-domestic-violence-/908427/), which reported very little details:

> A former Fullerton police officer acquitted in the beating trial of Kelly Thomas has once again found himself on the wrong side of the law.
> Police responding to a report of a family disturbance arrested Manuel Ramos on July 16 after he allegedly assaulted a woman in the 3600 block of W. Oak Avenue.
> Ramos, 41, was booked for misdemeanor domestic violence and has since posted $10,000 bail. The case remains under investigation by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
> In January 2014, Ramos and former police corporal Jay Cicinelli were found not guilty of all charges in the 2011 beating death of Kelly Thomas, a homeless mentally ill man. Ramos had been charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter.

Perhaps karma is finally catching up to Ramos, who despite video and audio evidence that showed Kelly Thomas was never a threat to police or anybody else the night he was beaten into a coma, was acquitted by a jury in January 2014, along with his counterpart, Jay Cicinelli.

**UPDATE:** The [__Orange County Register__](http://www.ocregister.com/articles/ramos-676444-thomas-fullerton.html) just published a piece quoting Fullerton police not saying much about the arrest, except for their claim that the woman he is accused of assaulting was “uninjured.”

**UPDATE II:** Earlier this week, [__Voice of OC__](http://voiceofoc.org/2015/08/previously-sealed-report-sheds-new-light-on-thomas-beating/) obtained the 2012 internal affairs report from its investigation on Ramos, Cincinelli and Joseph Wolfe, the three main officers involved in the beating, finding numerous departmental violations.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
