Kelly Thomas Related City Council Recall in Fullerton Advances

Kelly Thomas
The Friends For Fullerton's Future blog is reporting overwhelming success in massive community efforts to recall three city councilmen who arrogantly downplayed the gruesome police killing of Kelly Thomas, a homeless man, last July.

According to the popular blog, more than 50,000 Fullerton residents signed petitions to recall Don Bankhead, F. Richard "Dick" Jones and Patrick McKinley.

In the wake of the Thomas killing, the city council trio acted despicably by repeatedly mocking the public outcry over police brutality.

The website reports that recall advocates obtained at least 6,500 more recall signatures than necessary for each councilman.

Former state Assemblyman Dick Ackerman (R-Fullerton) is leading efforts to block the recall.

After the Orange County Registrar of Voters validates the signatures, the city council must call for a special election.

Prosecutors arrested two Fullerton police officers for illegally killing Thomas.

Wow, Shame of you who are the bad guys in blue. A mob should introduce you to the pipe crew justice team on the beach or in prison. I look forward to seeing when this case finally get the justice Kelly Thomas deserves. On all levels. Do you think your exempt from punishment? I'am pushing for all 6 to be held responsible for your actions. While the other inmates  are stabbing  you, in Pelican Bay, and you fall to the ground pleading for your life... Just remember Kelly. Your heartless, gutless, piece of evil trash. Yours is coming, if not in this life  than it will in hell. Other police OFFICERS Are not like you. Don't get me wrong but you all make the U.S.A. look bad. SHAMEFUL

Isn't it funny how politicians beg, plead, cry, whine and promise goodies and change and to be your BFF for your vote...

...and when they make it suddenly they're gods ruling from Mt. Olympus running ramshod over all the petty mortals.
