Two California policemen ordered to trial over videotaped beating death

• Reuters

A judge ordered two Southern California policemen on Tuesday to stand trial on homicide charges in the death of a schizophrenic homeless man who was beaten and repeatedly shocked with a stun gun by a group of officers last July.

The fatal confrontation between police in Fullerton, California, 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles, and 37-year-old Kelly Thomas was caught on videotape and touched off a series of protests in the city.
