Last month, six police officers in Fullerton, Calif., attacked 37-year-old Kelly Thomas, a homeless man with mental health problems. Witnesses say the police used excessive and brutal force in their attack, tasering Kelly at least five times. Thomas died later in hospital. Now, his father and Fullerton residents are demanding justice for his death, as evidence builds that police were overly forceful. Two videos uploaded to YouTube and Fullerton-based websites  show  witnesses' reaction to the police action. In one video, the clicking sound of a Taser can be heard. Ron Thomas, the father of Kelly Thomas, is  a former deputy sheriff in Orange County, California, is seeking justice for his son.  Tracy Wood, a senior journalist with Voice of OC, speaks about what's happening in Fullerton.
