Tom Leykis Adds "Fullerton Police Department-Style" to His List of "Take Me Out..." Audio Clips
On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of talking about the Kelly Thomas murder on The Tom Leykis Show. I had Facebooked Tom the horrific beating that the Fullerton police inflicted on Kelly; Tom was so disturbed that we talked about the incident for two hours, taking phone calls from apologists and non-apologists alike.
Leykis is a self-described supporter of cops, but the video so disturbed him--"worse than Rodney King," he repeated again and again--that he's now out to ridicule those killers. And his best way to ridicule is to immortalize the target as one of the "Take Me Out..." clips listeners traditionally request after ending their call, like "Kobe style" (Kobe Bryant's weak-ass apology to his wife after cheating on her backed by the sounds of a moaning woman) and so many more.
Now, behold "Fullerton PD style"

Leykis told me that supporters of killer cops Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli are already furious, which means we should ask the Professor to play it ALWAYS. He also gave the Weekly this statement:
