Fullerton Councilman Bruce Whitaker Alleges Police Cover-Up In Kelly Thomas Case

Fullerton Councilman Bruce Whitaker is starting to speak out against an alleged police cover-up of the brutal beating death of Kelly Thomas at the hands of Fullerton policemen. 

In a video interview with Full Disclosure Network last week, Whitaker voiced his frustration with information he received from city officials, which the DA's investigation later proved to be inaccurate.

"It's one thing to say there are sensitive details we can't allow, but to actually have reports that are not true at all...that creates a narrative that would take us in the wrong direction. I have a vested interest in sending a message that that's not okay," Whitaker told Full Disclosure.

He says he wants to send a clear message to the department: it's not okay to lie. "We're talking about sworn public safety officers who we have a right reasonably to expect that their reports be accurate and that their representations be accurate."

In fact, Whitaker says he had to go to other sources outside of the city to get a clear picture of what happened to Thomas. "The Friends for Fullerton's Future blog and eyewitness accounts... those have been so much more accurate than anything I've received as internal communication," Whitaker said. 

The councilman says the current situation has made him more leery of the city's practices. "How do I operate as a city councilmember in the future? I may just have to completely disregard our official line coming from the city."

Oh,... I forgot number ten:

10.  Arresting and prosecuting the wrong guy,... then when confronted with video proof, admitting they made a mistake.  oops.

1. The sadistic, torture, brutalization and murder of 135 pound mentally ill homeless man (fully sober homeless man)2. The sadistic beating, finger breaking and "joyride" of a college student3. Breaking down the door of the wrong house, then failing to mention it.4. Hiring an officer unfit for duty5. Allowing a uniformed, union-protected, gang-banging band of thug bullies to watch the video of their criminality as they write up their incident reports6. Sexually mollesting and terrorizeing female citizens...only to face "re-training" on proper "pat-down" procedures8.  Indefinite medical leaves when the spotlight gets too hot9.  Bailing out a murderer umm.... "cover up" you say... Don't you think that is the least "infraction" in this long line of sadistic, twisted, power-tripping, respect-seeking Abu Ghraib caliber revelations of brutality, corruption and criminality by this "organization?"  This reads more like a criminal gangland enterprise that needs to be held fully accountable, finally.

Some of you laugh at him and question his intentions, and they could likely be just to avoid being recalled and get re-elected.  All I'm saying is look for allies in unlikely places.  Its a start.

"I may just have to completely disregard our official line coming from the city." 

Why not? That's what everyone else will be doing.
