Fringies® Are Funtastic. The Failed Face of Fullerton 2011


This is a new category for the Fringies® and will be awarded to that douchenozzle who best represents what’s really wrong with Fullerton, jumping the tracks-wise. The Nominating Committee had all sorts of trouble winnowing out the finalists, but in the end the selections were made. It wasn’t painless, no. But it was hard work that had to be done.

Union Über Alles

1. Andrew Goodrich. The swinish face of Fullerton to the media. The liar, coverup artist, and police union boss who inexplicably is still employed by the City to hand out misinformation and punish the few journalist who dare write the truth. Proof positive that the  cops run the City Council, not the other way around.

Lookin' out for the ladies, oh yeah!

2. Ex Police Chief Pat McKinley, now councilman-by-93 votes, who developed his world-view under Daryl Gates; who thinks it’s pretty much okay for cops to grope certain kinds of women, and who explained to a national audience that Kelly Thomas’ facial injuries were not life threatening.

Money was the object.

3. Dick Ackerman. The carpetbagging slime-sack from Irvine who has millions of reasons to protect the Three Dithering Diplosaurs on the Fullerton City Council, and not one of them decent. No, basic decency has nothing to do with this political fixer, lobbyist and bagman. The sooner he is chased out of our city once and for all, the better.

Will you please shut up!

4. Doc “HeeHaw” Dick Jones, the loudmouthed lout and bully who famously characterized law-abiding protesters as a “lynch-type mob” and who claimed to have seen far worse injuries than Kelly Thomas’ that were survivable. To a world-wide audience shocked at the police killing of a harmless homeless guy, Jones represented entrenched, sclerotic, ignorant authority. Those who have watched Jones in action for 15 long years saw nothing new.

Well, there are the depressing choices. And now for a flea bath and rinse.

    Goodrich. It’s gotta be Goodrich.

    • #2 by Tuco Ramirez on December 20, 2011

      I vote for Sgt. Goodrich. He gets paid $125,000 kper year + benefits + pension to lie in order to deflect criticism (temporarily) from the FPD. The three dinosaurs do not get paid nearly as much as councilmembers although a couple of them are shaking down the municipal pension system for double Sgt. Goodrich’s pay!
      But Goodrich has the only job where you lie, get caught and still get paid an inflated salary (other than Wall Street CEO’s!)

      • #3 by The Fullerton Harpoon on December 20, 2011

        Tuco, good points. I think you may have a front runner here.

    Hey, the picture of Bankhead asleep on the dais represents the Failed Face of Fullerton, no?

    • #5 by Jane H on December 20, 2011

      JFD, when did you acquire such extraordinary wisdom?

      My vote goes to McKinley (as always) because he is one of the main architects, now conductor, of a epic cover-up.

      • #6 by Jane H on December 20, 2011

        AN epic cover-up.

        I hate when I do that.

  3. #7 by Wrong Guy on December 20, 2011

    OK, this Fringie thing is getting redundant, however, I believe all the Fringie awards should go to Pat McKinley due to his constant blubbering, failing, making up his own words ie. ‘bloused’, acting like ‘hot-shit’ chief of police still, hiring FPD recruits apparently by going down to Men’s Central Jail in LA and recruiting the convicts on their way out.
    Pat McKinley=KIng Fringie

    • #8 by Jane H on December 20, 2011

      Redundant yes, but without reminders of all the plunders, people will forget, and move on to something else in their insular world. We need to drive it home!

      • #9 by Jane H on December 20, 2011

        Yes, I meant plunder, although there a lot of blunders as well.

        That’s what the city has done to its residents.

        • #10 by Ffff tards on December 20, 2011

    • #12 by Jan Flory's Dog on December 20, 2011

      Redundant? That’s not our fault. it’s been that kind of year.

      In any case you needn’t worry about it. Them’s all the categories. If I can round up a quorum for the Selection Committee winners will be announced in a day or two. And by winners I mean losers.

      However, as always we will be handing out Special Fringies® to those who have excelled themselves – one way or another.

  4. #13 by Friendly Neighbor on December 20, 2011

    ….and we have a four way tie!

  5. #14 by McDickhead on December 20, 2011

    Heavens to Murgatroyd! That picture of Goodrich is 20 years old. That or he has aged 20 years since the picture was snapped.

    “Douchenozzle” being the magic word, I have to go with Pat McPension- a seriously bad-ass douchenozzle of Uranus proportions.

    How does a guy like that have any friends and who are they?

  6. #15 by merijoe on December 20, 2011

    I would vote for Michael Sellers if that was an option, but out of these turds-Im going to go with Mckinley – for all the things he turned his back on, for the Shebear seminar comments

    whether or not Sellers is to blame-McKinley knew what his “buddy” was ignoring but chose to sit there and not say or do anything-this make him as culpable and guilty as anyone.

    as Einstein said,
    “The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”

  7. #16 by Tony Kiger on December 20, 2011

    Don’t look at the bottom people. Goodrich is a meaningless, albeit astounding symptom. McKinley is a rank amateur, Bankhead is a puppet and Jones is a placeholder. Give this award to those who are the true architects of our dysfunctional city hall. The three Recallees could not have secured their seats without the support and protection of the likes of Dick Ackerman. Ackerman is an insider’s insider whose mission is to both make money and prevent the elections of those who would interfere with his ability to make a living. Of course this includes electing three guys who have never had an original political thought in their lives. Ackerman represents the very worst of what Orange County Republican Party politics has become… DPOC II.

    The most amusing irony is that Ackerman IS exactly what the No-Recall supporters are claiming Tony Bushala is. The Fullerton Recall is the most noble battle in Fullerton political history. Small government values vs. self-serving cronyism.

    Ackerman wins.

    • #17 by Jane H on December 20, 2011

      So, from now on the cop lovers and all their friends will be called, “Ackerman’s puppets who are McKinleys’ puppets”.

    • #18 by Jan Flory's Dog on December 20, 2011

      Excellent points. Except that Ackerman’s going to lose. And that will be history. He’s too old to start cultivating a whole new collection of puppets.

      • #19 by Reality Was on December 20, 2011

        I dunno. Once the Recall signatures are verified Ackerman is going to have to start thinking about hedging his bets with some new stooges in the replacement election.

        Dick isn’t honest but he isn’t too dumb. He needs a Plan B to protect St. Anton Partners millions.

  8. #20 by Wrong Guy on December 20, 2011

    BTW JFD, your remark of Goodrich, “swinish face of Fullerton”, is thee perfect description for that mugshot of him.
    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like backhanding him when you see that photo?

      It’s not just you.

    • #26 by Reality Was on December 20, 2011

      FPD Xmas dinner? I’ll bet that was a real somber event.

      • #27 by truthseeker on December 20, 2011

        Somber only if your conscience is intact which is still questionable for the majority of those in attendance. The silence from the supposed “good officers” and the eccumenical leaders of our community is defeaning. Even more appaling as the silence was broken just a few days ago was the attorney bragging IN YOUR FACE about how the charges will be dropped. Yet we still hear about the similar but less fatal beating at Dodger Stadium 9 months ago with a far better outcome for the victim. The LAPD stopped the earth’s rotation in order to lock someone up for that horrific crime WHICH HAD NO VIDEO CAPUTURE AND FEW WITNESSES and yet about 30 miles to the south and several months later the FPD, while engaged in far worse on film in plainview of many stopped the moon’s rotation thinking nobody would notice, to effect a massive cover-up of a brutal murder. Unbenounced to those in attendance to the FPD event at the summit house, what they were celebrating was not the birth of Christ at their party but in reality the saturnalia celebration with a side of ashtoreth, a touch of baal, a dash of the grove and a sprinkle of molech. May God have mercy on those involved in this heinous incident and subsequent white wash and cover up. There is NO FORGIVENESS WITHOUT REPENTANCE AND DENIAL AND LIES DO NOT CONSTITUTE REPENTANCE. Like I have said before -it is never too late to do the right thing. THE WORLD IS WAITING AND WATCHING.

            I still wonder how HeeHaw managed to cover that up. Oh, right, the cop contract was being negotiated. I wonder what he and Blankhead gave away to keeps the cops silent.

    I am still upset that QuickSilver and Whitakker are both on the city council and do not regularly take the 3 blind mice and the city manager to task for problems at FPD. All votes have to be public. How did they vote for the City Manager raise or the FPD request for better benefits? Exactly what have the “other” two been doing? Tuco wants to know and so should you!

    • #44 by Anonymous on December 20, 2011

      She called the recall “divisive”, “ill will”, “does harm to the soul of the city”, “emotional mischief” and each signature costs the city $3.40.

      • #45 by merijoe on December 20, 2011

        Recalls are an American right- part of CA political system since 1911. It provides a mechanism for the public to attempt to remove elected public officials from office before the end of their term of office

        … and recalls are not “reserved” for malfeasance or any other reason- see CA constititution Article 2, Sections 13;14;

        Neither the California Constitution nor the Elections Code says under what circumstances recall is justified.
        Instead, the CA Constitution says, in connection with recalls of state officers, “sufficiency of reason is not reviewable.”

      • #46 by Curious on December 20, 2011

        Typical scare tactics for the weak minded and feeble. When all else fails, misdirect and lie. It’s the norm in the industry.

        • #47 by The Visitor on December 21, 2011

          Note to political hacks: If you ever want to be taken seriously don’t use the word “divisive”. It makes you look like a lying weenie grasping at straws.

      • #59 by Anonymous on December 21, 2011

        Cute but hat lady had nothing to do with Kelly’s Army and “South of the border lady” (as you so wonderfully called her) always complained about officers doing nothing about her domestic violence case, like “hat lady” she never was really involved in the protests of KT’s murder so you’re 0-2 but I digress, times have changed havent they?

        I remember not too long ago when you cop kissers hinted that it was Ron’s fault that Kelly’s head got bashed in and that the officers involved were “heroes” and outstanding members of the community who should be lauded for doing such an outstanding job.

        Today even the higher ups at Fullerton PD admit there is a problem with their department and the cops involved are on trial so you cop kissers and bootlickers are left to go back into hiding with your tails tucked between your legs. *whimpers*

  23. #65 by Wrong Guy on December 20, 2011

    The meeting did go very well.
    Much of that had to do with acting Chief Hamilton explaining all the additional training procedures the department has been going through since the Gennaco and FBI investigations, etc.
    That set the tone.

And does the city account for this X-mas present for this guy? Dont tell me, the vote was 3-2. Please give us some good news on the re-call so we can get some people in there that can at least be civil to each other and start doing some governing. What is happening now and been happening is just beyond pathetic. Hamilton should retire sooner than later and the citizen oversight committee for the new cheif is a great idea. Retraining, what a load of shit! Talk about dragging your feet. If you have to train these knuckleheads on why you should not murder, molest and steal you got a long way to go baby, a long way.
