The Fullerton Police Department Are the Bullies In Blue

“Kelly Thomas’ killing has brought worldwide attention and condemnation to the Fullerton Police Department. It has sparked dozens of rallies involving hundreds of protesters; spurred a recall campaign against council members F. Dick Jones, Pat McKinley (the city’s former police chief) and Don Bankhead (a longtime Fullerton police officer) for their silence on the matter. But for  residents who have dealt with the city’s police force for generations, the  Thomas killing wasn’t surprising at all. The beating and subsequent  cover-up were just business as usual—except this time, a rogue  department, after years of citizen harassment, intimidation and abuse,  is finally getting its deserved day in the spotlight.”

Excellent article. Definitely worth reading.

Abuse, corruption, and cover-up… and not exclusive to Fullerton.
