California cops on trial for beating homeless man to death
The trial for two Orange County, Calif. police officers involved in the death of homeless man Kelly Thomas began Monday. Former Fullerton Officer Manuel Ramos has been charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter, while former Corporal Jay Cicinelli has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and excessive force. A third officer, Joseph Wolfe, will face trial in late January. Surveillance video shows the officers beating Thomas with their fists and the butts of their guns, and tasing him at least four times. Meghan Lopez shows the disturbing footage and discusses the trial with RT correspondent Ramon Galindo, who has kept a close eye on the case.
I never rarely post vids, but this is a good friend of mine and this is a really good part that I like a lot. Kagen Osbourn.
Kagen is one of my favorite skaters and he is amazing to watch in person. Such a great style, insanely consistent, and always skating hard. He just learns gnarly tricks so fast and it looks so effortless, but if you skate with him you’d know he works damn hard for his tricks. This part was about a year ago, and this is nothing compared to how good he is now. Look out for a full part from him in the future.

I’ve come to realize a few things thanks to this photo:
1. Bluntslides are hard as shit to shoot, and probably harder to land.
2. If you can’t find a new and better angle, rely on an old one.
3. You can’t nail every photo.
Life goes on though, and great job to Miles! You should be proud!
