Back in 2012, after Fullerton Officers beat Kelly Thomas to death. In the aftermath, that is still ongoing today as former Officers Cicinelli and Wolfe continue to fight their terminations, the Cicinelli family asked for close to $1k in order to hide out in his parent’s house in Arizona.
“We have recently been asked by one of our police officers involved inthe Kelly Thomas incident if the possibility still exists forreimbursement of extra living expenses incurred in August following thepublication of their home addresses on a local blog. I believe I hadconversations with Alan about this expense being reimbursable under thispolicy. As I recalled, our discussion was that certain expenses wouldbe allowable if they met the “reasonableness” test and clearly wereadditional living expenses.At the time, none of the officers asked for reimbursement. We now haveone indicating that he did incur additional expenses in the weeksfollowing the publication of his home address when he relocated hisfamily. He originally was inclined to not seek reimbursement, but nowwishes to do so.Please advise whether you are in a position to consider such a claimand, if so, what you will need to review to evaluate whether anyexpenses are reimburseable.”
“We will reimburse the expense. Can you just confirm that the amount being sought is 969.31 and the check should be made payable to Jay Cincinelli and mailed to [redacted].”
“Maybe he should have thought about all this before he beat a man to death…..”
