Fullerton Residents: Vote Out Three Lousy City Councilmen Today

Give the boot to Bankhead, Jones and McKinley
Attention Fullerton residents:

You've eaten breakfast. You've eaten lunch. But before you eat dinner please make sure you've given the boot to three incumbent city councilmen who are facing a critical recall election today.

Why?

When the world was watching Fullerton in the wake of the July 2011, police killing of Kelly Thomas, the council majority--Dick Jones, Don Bankhead and Pat McKinley--strenuously refused to hold police department thugs accountable.

To the outrage of Thomas' family and decent people everywhere, the trio tried to downplay the gruesome, unnecessary death.

They even openly mocked Tony Bushala, the businessman/blogger--hell, the hero--who ignored police intimidation tactics to make sure California and the nation learned about this shocking case of police brutality.

Now, in a shameless attempt to turn reality upside down, the trio and their police union pals hope voters will believe that the bad guy worthy of scorn in Fullerton is Bushala.

Reject that lie and stand for honest policing by grabbing your friends, neighbors and co-workers, going to your polling places and voting.

Why are you reading this sentence?

You should be heading out the door to deliver the well-deserved boot to Bankhead, Jones and McKinley.

Is a boot to pat McKinley once a member of the orange county human relations commission a boot to rusty Kennedy?

gloria did you know kelly thomas? I did. It was LACK of drugs, like his meds, that contributed to his mental state. I never saw Kelly anything otherthan hhis normal: which was shy, retiring and skitterish like a dear in the headlights.

Here, here! Bushala is a fucking hypocrite. The son of a rich man who thinks his shit doesn't stink. He's got an agenda, and he's still pulling strings behind the scenes. Tony has been a bullshitter his entire life and this just happens to be the biggest pile yet!

To No & Wise:  How much is Bushala paying you?  And agree with Make This, but you forgot to add - part of his campaign will be profitting from his son again, a drug addict that did not deserve to be killed but became homeless and mentally ill due to his drug use and treatment by his family.  Everyone keeps saying mentally ill but those that work with them know that drug abuse highly contributes to their mental state.

Soooo, Ron Thomas is now running around announcing Fullerton will become a charter city and he's going to move here & run for mayor, so he can fire the police chief..??.. Is that Bushala's next project? The folks of Fullerton better start pulling their heads out of their assholes. I wonder if, during the campaign, we will hear about his "long" and "illustrious" career in law enforcement? Or maybe we will hear about his "extensive" experience in investigations? Ron, take your (soon to be) settlement, buy a new boat and go away.

I voted to have them recalled. Researching them the only word I can come up with to describe them is blubbering.

However; Bushala needs to be mocked. He's good at making it seem like he doesn't care about his interests and his interests ONLY.

Hey Make This, you are proof, you can't fix stooopid with duct tape. Sour grapes?

Bushala needs to be mocked?  How's this:  Bushala's victory party was at The Pint House, which is exactly the type of downtown business that he regularly rails against on his blog. Meet the new boss.  Somehow worse than the old boss.

Cody, when you are a little more mature, you may realize that you should be a bit more grateful to this man for helping to make the community in which you live,  better for yourself, your family and, if you are so lucky, your future children.

Nonsense. If someone wanted to pull the strings at Fullerton city hall all they'd ever have to do is pay up and play nice with those kooks, that's how the people who currently pull the strings there did it. I think he believes that Jones, Bankhead and McKinley are old guard, bad-for-Fullerton hacks, and they need to be sent packing. And he's right.

Mature? Really? So anyone that doesn't agree with you ( see lower comments by you) is an idiot? Which one of needs to grow up? Money and power corrupts. I wanted to give Bushala a chance, but the Bootleggers issue was the tipping point.
