Schizophrenic Man Dead After Clash with Police

The family lawyer of a 37-year-old schizophrenic man who died after a confrontation with police in Los Angeles County is comparing the case to that of Kelly Thomas.
Khoa Anh Le [KOH-ah ann leh] died after being kicked, choked tasered and beaten by officers with the El Monte Police Department.
The family says police used excessive force against a mentally ill man just as officers in Fullerton had done last year.
