Ah am a doctah!


Here’s a post from last August that needs to be rerun. For pure fatheadedness and insensitivity you can’t beat Doc HeeHaw.
Of course now the cat is all the way out of the bag and we know this swine was covering up for a gang of thugs in a corrupt, out-of-control police department.
– Joe Sipowicz

Crazy is as crazy does...

In case you missed it, here is our own lovable mayor, Doc HeeHaw explaining his confusion as to what killed Kelly Thomas.

Insensitivity? Stupidity? All around assholishness? Yep that’s our good ol’ boy HeeHaw.

    He’s covering or he truly is a poseur doctor, alot of people with absoutely no outside trauma, die from internal injuries-princess Di was an example.

    The outside trauma that Kelly suffered was bad enough for a 5th grader to figure out something bad happened to this man on the inside

    Sounds like the good doctor is in league with our D.A. to keep these cops out of jail.

    Sounds like pressure needs to be put on the sherriff to get the autopsy released. Let’s call it what it is, no one has ever died from a drug over dose days after using besides no paraphinaila was found on Kelly.

          He was never in Vietnam. The closest doc Heehaw ever came to action was when a fighter plane crashed somewhere in the South Pacific. Jones was assigned to the rescue mission. But when he jumped out of the helicopter he sprained his ankle. The rescue was abandoned and another helicopter with a rescue team had to go out and rescue the downed jack ass. They returned with Heehaw but without the downed pilot.

          True story. He said it during a rant at a public hearing.

  6. #15 by Mr. Peabody on August 12, 2011

    Yes, it would appear that the strategy is put their faith in the fact that the Coroner couldn’t determine the cause of death, (i.e. was it brain injury or oxygen deprivation?) and are hoping for a miracle.

    Too bad, HeeHaw. The good docs at UCI know what happened to Kelly Thomas.

    Cornpone Jones sounds genuinely frightened and agitated in the video clip. Evidently it was just sinking through his skull that his big ol’ titty really was caught in the garbage disposer — for real this time.

    The sick six, the FPD, the City — all of them — thought Kelly Thomas would be old news 42 hours after they launched the coverup. Not in their wildest nightmares could they imagine the trouble they’ve since brought down on their heads.

    I don’t know where else to ask this, but what about the five other cops (minus Cicinelli) involved? Does anyone know anything about them? Is one of them black (the black beast)? How did Kempton Hamilton’s name get thrown out so quickly, before Cicinelli’s? How did people know he was there before they who the others were? Thank you. I am not near enough to be with you guys in Fullerton in person, but I’ll be there in person. I’m sorry if this is a bad place to post my questions. Thanks.

      Because kevin Hampton was in the other “excessive use of force” video that is on youtube. You can find it if you type in fullerton police beating and scroll down a ways. I think john and ken may have had an insider on their show that mentioned his name, or alluded to the fact he was there.

    It would appear that the mayor is attempting to incite something with his comments. Please be cognizant of that and remember that the sheer numbers of peaceful protestors on the streets that increases with each passing week will keep the cowards and liars awake at night. Sleep deprivation will be their reward. The truth will stand on its own.

    Omg…what a fucking idiot…he’s obviously still admist a coverup…but he has got to have alzheimers or something to make a televised statement like that…im in WV and i have family in fullerton…my aunt said she is moving if hes not removed from his chair and the rest would do anything to see him recalled…this guy is crooked as a dogs back leg…that lynch mob (his constituents) should flog his fat ass all the way to the county line…what a disgace.

    From CNN/Justice:
    His father, Ron, said Friday that four new witnesses to that struggle have come forward this week, and he notified the FBI and the Orange County district attorney of the new witnesses Thursday.

    The four witnesses, who had been afraid to make themselves known, saw “100% of everything” and “100% of the nonstop beating to my son’s head” by police, Ron Thomas said. Two of the witnesses are a husband and wife, and they saw Kelly Thomas before his encounter with officers, when Thomas was “not bothering anyone, just walking,” his father said. The four witnesses approached the father Wednesday evening, he said.

    “It’s real key,” Thomas said of the four witnesses’ accounts. “It substantiates a lot of facts. They’re very, very reliable people.”

    The incident “goes so far beyond brutality,” the father said Friday.

    KTLA just ran a live report from Fullerton. It was short; they’ll likely have more details to report at 6:00.

    Cornpone is standing by his previous statements regarding Kelly’s injuries. “I’ve seen worse,” he said again.

    What is that supposed to mean? Does he honestly think the beating and subsequent injuries were not the cause of Kelly’s death?

    How can anyone in their right mind say that?

    What was it — a spider bite?

    For crying out loud, even if he’s actively involved in a coverup — and it sure looks like it — a statement as lame as that can only hurt his coverup cause.

    The plain truth is that Kelly would be alive right now were it not for the FPD goons who beat him to death that night.

    “I’ve seen worse.” What a rotten, disgraceful man.

    Amazing. The machinations of this guy’s mind are breathtaking. You might be able to get him recalled for medical reasons, since he’s clearly delusional.

    DIAGNOSIS :

    2) ALTERED LEVEL OF CONCIOUSNESS DUE TO DEMENTIA SECONDARY TO SEPSIS

    I am not from Fullerton but I watched everything and hear everything that is going on. I am sorry for the people of Fullerton for having incompetent Mayor, he should be placed in a nursing home as his mind is not working well and so with his eyes sight and his judgment. He maybe a doctor like fifty years ago but he is currently a mayor and should act and speak like a mayor….the primary concern is the people of Fullerton. Otherwise, he should resign and be back as a doctor but he only have himself as a patient….HAVE CONSCIENCE MR. MAYOR.

    *** Breaking News ***

    Kelly died of a heart attack related to drug abuse in his life. The taser use contributed to the heart attack, but only because of a weakened heart due to drugs. He was under the influence of marijuana and methamphetamine at the time of his death. The facial injuries were mostly superficial and didn’t contribute to his death at all.

    Just kidding. But if the coroner and DA return something like this, would any of the Kelly activists believe it?

    Then money hungry Mr Thomas hires his own autopsy person and he comes up with something a little different, but mostly the same.

    Just wondering how this part will play out. I looked at a blown up photo zoomed in today and his face didn’t look as bad. They stuffed cloth up his nose, his has tubes, but alot of that red medical liquid rubbed all over too. Bandage on his forehead. Just curious what his injuries really were. I think the cause of death will be the key to the case and seeing that so far they can’t determine a cause, I wonder which way it will go.

    The news is funny today. They keep saying that Fullerton has hired that guy to investigate the killing. He isn’t investigating the killing. He’s looking at Fullertons policies and procedures and reviewing the investigation once it is complete. He’s being hired to make sure Fullerton is doing things right for the future.

    I heard Mr Thomas say last night as I was standing next to him that all of the money from this lawsuit will go to assist the homeless in Fullerton and California. I bet he won’t do that. I plan on asking him about that tomorrow. If he really is going to take nothing of the lawsuit, then I will look at him much differently. Most people want this case looked at and justice to prevail, but so many people think Mr Thomas is a money hungry father that wanted nothing to do with his son and feel he shouldn’t get a penny.

    The new witnesses will be good too. I’m very glad the video wasn’t released now. If it had been, these witnesses would have very little credibility. Now that it hasn’t, they could appear much more credible.

    I wonder how much longer the DA will take. Sounded like Mr Thomas meeting today was to the point and mostly one sided. I just wanna know who, if any, will be charged so we can move in that direction.

    The video issue is interesting too. There is nothing wrong with police reviewing their videos as they write their reports. I know the dash cams are used everyday. An outside video source review is an interesting topic. It’s much different when uninvolved parties review the video, but should the cops be able to review it? It’s done US wide now, but wonder if that might change in the future if someone has a good argument.

    I think the video shows a full on fight. I think it shows Kelly fighting and the cops fighting back. Due to the tree, the clarity goes in and out and shows the struggle and fight. I don’t think it’s clear what actually happens during the fight, thats why the DA hasn’t filed any charges.

    This blog is interesting. Never been involved with something so one sided but it’s fun and a learning experience. So many assumptions, guesses, and opinions about what happened. So much silence due to the investigation so very hard to know what actually did happen from start to finish. We will know soon enough.

    See ya all tomorrow.

He was under the influence of marijuana and methamphetamine at the time of his death. The facial injuries were mostly superficial and didn’t contribute to his death at all.
    Just kidding. But if the coroner and DA return something like this, would any of the Kelly activists believe it?
    Then money hungry Mr Thomas hires his own autopsy person and he comes up with something a little different, but mostly the same.
    Just wondering how this part will play out. I looked at a blown up photo zoomed in today and his face didn’t look as bad. They stuffed cloth up his nose, his has tubes, but alot of that red medical liquid rubbed all over too. Bandage on his forehead. Just curious what his injuries really were. I think the cause of death will be the key to the case and seeing that so far they can’t determine a cause, I wonder which way it will go.
    The news is funny today. They keep saying that Fullerton has hired that guy to investigate the killing. He isn’t investigating the killing. He’s looking at Fullertons policies and procedures and reviewing the investigation once it is complete. He’s being hired to make sure Fullerton is doing things right for the future.
    I heard Mr Thomas say last night as I was standing next to him that all of the money from this lawsuit will go to assist the homeless in Fullerton and California. I bet he won’t do that. I plan on asking him about that tomorrow. If he really is going to take nothing of the lawsuit, then I will look at him much differently. Most people want this case looked at and justice to prevail, but so many people think Mr Thomas is a money hungry father that wanted nothing to do with his son and feel he shouldn’t get a penny.
    The new witnesses will be good too. I’m very glad the video wasn’t released now. If it had been, these witnesses would have very little credibility. Now that it hasn’t, they could appear much more credible.
    I wonder how much longer the DA will take. Sounded like Mr Thomas meeting today was to the point and mostly one sided. I just wanna know who, if any, will be charged so we can move in that direction.
    The video issue is interesting too. There is nothing wrong with police reviewing their videos as they write their reports. I know the dash cams are used everyday. An outside video source review is an interesting topic. It’s much different when uninvolved parties review the video, but should the cops be able to review it? It’s done US wide now, but wonder if that might change in the future if someone has a good argument.
    I think the video shows a full on fight. I think it shows Kelly fighting and the cops fighting back. Due to the tree, the clarity goes in and out and shows the struggle and fight. I don’t think it’s clear what actually happens during the fight, thats why the DA hasn’t filed any charges.
    This blog is interesting. Never been involved with something so one sided but it’s fun and a learning experience. So many assumptions, guesses, and opinions about what happened. So much silence due to the investigation so very hard to know what actually did happen from start to finish. We will know soon enough.
    See ya all tomorrow.

    The irony of your “one-sided” comment gave me a slight chuckle, thanks.

    You are good for something after all.

    “one sided?”. Not everything has 2 sides. Gravity is not on dispute. I hate that CNN way of thinking.

    No bed-side manner at all. Glad he wasn’t my doc.

    You have “seen worse”? What an insensitive thing to say. You should not be a representative of the citizens of Fullerton.

    Thanks for running this again. It helps to be reminded what a pig Jones really is.

    What dumb coward he is!

  59. #89 by Fred Alcazar on May 8, 2012

    This sad event has been nothing but an annoying inconvenience to Jones. For Bankhead and McPension it was all about doing whatever it took to protect the tarnished integrity of an organization they ran into the ground.

    True story.

    Richard Jones medical doctor is not a hee haw, swine, fool. he is a well-educated man who has practiced medicine and has served as a civic leader for many years as a fullerton city council person. He has a better than average understanding of injuries, the inner workings of a city and its police force. And with his intelligence, depth and breadth of knowledge in medicine, legalities, public administration, government, Richard Jones lied to the public about the severity of Kelly thomas injuries, obfuscated evidence that linked the fullerton police department to collusion, perjury and murder, condoned Fullerton PD releasing false information about the events surrounding the kelly thomas’ murder, has allowed the city to legally settle numerous civil rights abuses committed by his town’s police force when it was and still is evident there is a pattern of police abuse upon the community.
    richard jones m.d. knows better than most persons right from wrong and he, like McKinley and Bankhead, knew kelly thomas was murdered by their town’s police force and did nothing until the media and concerned persons demanded from them an explanation.
    When protestors stood outside city hall demanding the truth from our civic leaders about Kelly thomas’ murder, richard Jones ignored them as he cut the ribbon to celebrate the remodeling of the library next door to city hall.

      Van is right. Jones may sound ridiculous sometimes, but he’s no fool. Well, his days on the council are numbered. He can go back to being a full time retired doctah’ in a month.

    This was a great incident to use for political purposes. Just what was the cause of death?
    Failing to submitt to a lawful arrest?

    • #93 by L Murray on May 8, 2012

      Arrest for what? Sitting on a bus bench? Taking junk mail from trash cans? What?

      • #94 by FPD on May 8, 2012

        The cops had plenty of PC for contact and detention. That’s not in question. Stick to the facts moron.

    Holy mackeral! What kind of a doctuh was this clown? A witch doctuh? Where did he get his medical degree? From the back of a matchbook cover? I wouldn’t let him remove a hangnail from my finger or an ingrown hair from my scrotum sack.

  65. #98 by Maurice Searcy on May 8, 2012

    I don’t think Mayor Jones was being insensitive or dumb. The mayor was simply conveying that upon the cessation of violence Kelly Thomas should at least still be alive if he was treated correctly and promptly by both officers and EMT’s. He’s merely expressing disbelief at how fucking pathetic all the officers and EMT’s on the seen were.

      Funny. Too bad that isn’t the truth!

    • #100 by Haha on May 8, 2012

      Cessation of the violence? Cicinelli just admitted for 90 million people to hear: I ran out of options and smashed his face to hell.

    Oh, so it’s Kelly fault that he died and the rest of us should take the beating alright? AFTER ALL HIS YEARS IN ‘NAM, WHY DOESN’T HE TRY SOME ON HIMSELF NOW to see how he holds up? Oh, I get it, the sublime message is that the officers are experts at beating people up ” ACCORDINGLY”.
