Hamilton Makes It Official: Fullerton Under Attack!


In case you missed it, the City Hall cheerleading Fullerton Stories website did a typical fluff post on the departure of Sylvia Palmer-Mudrick, the person who has been writing all those propaganda press releases that Jackie Brown, Barbara Giasone, and Lou Ponsi have been re-typing under their own names for the past twenty-five years. Good-bye Sylvia, enjoy your pension.

What caught my eye was the remarkable quote by four-month old “Acting” Chief (and soon to be massive pension recipient) Kevin Hamilton, who coughed up this oily hairball:

 “Sylvia loves this town with all of her heart. She’s (recently) seen a side of Fullerton she’s never seen before … a town under attack.

“She continues to defend the reputation of this city, and she would give her life for this town,” Hamilton said.

A town under attack? Really?

And just who the in Hell do you think you are you jackass? It was your police force that robbed, beat up, perjured, sexually assaulted, and murdered innocent citizens. How goddam dare you claim that the City is under attack.Your filthy, corrupt department is under attack – by us, the citizens of Fullerton. We are the City, not you and your gang of thugs, hoodlums and pickpockets.

    Anybody who thought Hamilton was a good guy can see his true colors. His crooked force can do no wrong. It’s them against us.

    And there you have the official mindset; no honesty, no honor, no integrity, no nothing. Nothing but inflated self-interest and the mentality of a self-entitled robber.

    Crazy how good Hamilton did last night and how impressed everyone was. With no mention of his known retirement and plans for the new Chief. Wild.

    Such a pathetic statement by Hamilton.. He is a breed of cop which the citizens of this city have grown tired of.. Why is it so hard for many in this city to realize that the FPD needs to be disbanded?

    We are all propagandizers. Every single one of us. Each and every one of us has an agenda. For good, we hope, but the agenda always exists, always perseveres and never fails us. Our values dictate the extent of the propagandizing, or lack thereof. We are not without the gene to propagandize. The day though determines the extent of our propagandizing.

    I actually think that Kevin has this situation transposed. What I saw, was the townspeople standing up to the latchkey police force, and the city councilman who enabled them by shielding them from outside scrutiny, in order to protect their own selfish interests and piss on the rest of us.

    He was a vice detective.

    Narcotics, gang and vice officers are the lowest of the low and by nature these officers are corrupt, sexist and racist. They don’t like wearing a uniform and they don’t like playing by any rules.

    I know for a fact that from the very first day my wife and I contacted then Captain Hamilton he has worked tirelessly to help us get a law passed which keeps child predators away from children in Fullerton. He always followed through on everything he said he would accomplish. He always behaved in a very professional, gentlemanly manner.

    We did not know Captain Hamilton previously and we certainly do not have any influence within City Hall nor the Police Department.

    How many people do any of you know that will keep their word over a 7 month period and always outperform and overdeliver on their promises?

    If your honest the answer is very, very few!

    The name calling is just so wrong!

    The only people that are looking very bad right now are those who have participated on this blog today putting down a good man!

    For Anonymous:

    Presentation Given By Barry Levinson To The Fullerton City Council On September 21, 2010 In Support Of Ordinance No. 3149 –
    Sex Offender/Pedophile Residency Restriction Law

    Seven months ago my wife & I were shocked to learn that a 4-time convicted sex offender/pedophile could move next door to our family in direct violation of Jessica’s Law. And yet, the police could do nothing about it because this law that was written to protect our most vulnerable citizens, our children, had no penalty attached to it.

    We were told many times that we were up against daunting hurdles, but we persevered with the conviction that as parents we must do everything we can to right this wrong. It has been a frustrating undertaking to get to where we are today. But we are proud that we have accomplished 3 important goals.

    First: to get the California Dept. of Corrections to acknowledge Laguna Lake Park as a “park”.

    Second: to cut this particular pedophile’s visitation hours to his house while on parole from 126 hrs/wk to 12 hrs/wk.

    Third: to lead our city to take a vital stance against those predators who are a threat to our children, by the passage of this ordinance tonight which would prevent them from living within 2000 ft. of a park, school or day care center.

    Tonight, I implore each and every council member to vote for the passage of Ordinance #3149. If, as a society, and indeed as a city, we do not have laws in place that protect those citizens who cannot protect themselves, our children, then how can we say with a straight face that we truly value our kids.

  31. #31 by Propagandizer on December 21, 2011

    Barry, first of all, that law has been passed all through Orange County. It is a good law, but Hamilton wasn’t the brains behind the law-it was Rauckauckas.

    And you’re only noticing the name calling on this blog now?

  34. #34 by Barry Levinson on December 21, 2011

    For Propagandizer!

    Please let me clarify the facts for you.

    The County of Orange law was passed many months after we got it passed in Fullerton with the full cooperation of then Captain Hamilton. He and the city attorney’s office worked jointly to get the most effective law passed here in Fullerton.

    Since that time not only has the County of Orange acted but so has many other communities within Orange County.

    Fullerton was one of the 1st cities to act in California and I believe was the very first city to act in Orange County.

    My wife and I worked very hard to get this accomplished and we made it our number one priority during that period.

    By the way I spoke on behalf of the Ordinance passed by the County several months after passage of our Fullerton Ordinance 3149.

    You know damned good and well that the overwhelming majority of children who are assaulted and molested have had this happen to them at the hands of relatives, friends, and acquaintances, rather than the mythical trench coat wearing perverts in parks.

  41. #41 by Tuco Ramirez on December 22, 2011

    Tuco reply to #20:
    Hamilton may be a good man to you because he kept the promises he made to you. Very nice. But lets look at the real problems in Fullerton. A number (around 10%) of FPD are on various types of costly leaves of absence due to malfeasance while on duty or else they would be on active duty. FPD costs about 30 to 35% more to run than comparable size or larger police forces on a per capita basis. The entire system of which he was acting chief has a high degree of corruption especially the group that reports to him as Captain.
    I am certain Hamilton worked hard while he was acting chief, but he also worked hard at coverups and bowing to the all powerful FPD union. That is why you should not be calling members of this blog misguided putting down a good man. You see, there are TWO sides to every story!

  42. #42 by Tuco Ramirez on December 22, 2011

    Its typical in hot button issues to pass them to get votes and support but put NO TEETH into the law which renders it moot. According to the Megans Law data base, Fullerton has a higher percentage of pervs than smaller cities in Orange County. Any ideas as to why there are so many in Fullerton? Its possible due to placing by the County or the State of offenders. So I give credit to anyone who is trying to reduce the density of offenders in Fullerton. Go out and look at the data base and you will be shocked by the number of offenders who neglect to provide probation officers with their new address. This is blatantly illegal and is a criminal offense whereby their probation should be pulled and they return to prison. Obviously it is not being properly supervised and enforced.

  43. #43 by Levi west on December 22, 2011

    I think Chris Thompson would make a great chief of police. Does the chief of police have to be a cop?

  44. #44 by Vernon Dozier on December 22, 2011

    There is zero, I repeat zero evidence that the entire Fullerton Police Department is corrupt. Some of the people on this blog have such hatred for police in general they will go after anybody in the department for no reason at all.

    I think it’s completely reasonable to point out the faults of the police here, but it needs to be tempered with the GOOD that is done by the GOOD officers of the department. The morale is very bad at the Fullerton PD right now. An insider recently told me that numerous officers are considering employment with other cities. Who’s going to replace them? Who would want to work for Fullerton PD when certain residents – and commenters on this blog – automatically will hate them because of their career choice? The longer people continue with unsubstantiated trash talk, the worse this problem becomes.

    Eventually it will get so bad, the only people willing to work for Fullerton PD are clones of Cicinelli and Ramos.

    Do you really want that?

    Vernon, your statement rests upon the definition of “corrupt.”

    How can so many instances of law-breaking by members of the FPD have occurred without the knowledge and silent acquiescence of the whole crowd. I am not being flip here. We’ve identified around twenty cops with direct knowledge or participation in crimes/coverups. So what was Hughes doing? What was Hamilton doing? What were the rest of the 120 sworn cops doing?

    That’s right, going along – for their FPOA brethren, their early retirement and their six-figure pensions.

    Is that a form of corruption? You tell me.

  54. #54 by Jane H on December 22, 2011

    Just on ktla news Fpd is making changes to training on how to deal with homeless and develop a policy leaving dars on. Sounds like guilt to moi!!!!

  57. #57 by Vernon Dozier on December 22, 2011

    What exactly are the 120 other cops supposed to do, if they have no authority to change anything, impose discipline, or terminate the employment of corrupt individuals?

    The only people you can blame are the ones at the top for allowing the culture of silence to exist. I think it’s probable that many people were afraid to speak up and do anything about it. Blow the cover on a corrupt cop to their superiors and all of a sudden your own life is in grave danger, and your radio calls for help go unanswered. It’s a double-edged sword.

    Sucks, but the six figure pension lards have ruined it for everyone. They are cashing enormous fraudulent pension checks while the remaining good officers suffer the aftermath. Not sure what I would do if I was one of those good officers who had no choice but to keep his mouth shut to keep a job. Speak up and your cut off by Barry and the Union boobs. I would probably quit if I worked at FPD.

  73. #73 by Lawful LEO on December 24, 2011

    Erin I really wish I could contact your privately about this.

    My best advice is don’t handle this locally. Contact the State Attorney General’s office and FBI immediately.

    The individual involved is likely using state resources (DMV records, Cal-Photo, etc) and federal resources (NCIS) to access and post personal information about you.

    The FBI and USDOJ does not take any abuse of the NCIS database lightly, same goes for the state.

    You may also want to contact a lawyer or get assistance from your local legal aid foundation if you cannot afford legal help.

    Keep in mind all queries are logged by multiple agencies so it wouldn’t be difficult for an investigator to find out who was using police/law enforcement resources to run a background check into you or your family.
