FPD Harassment Up Close And Personal


Excessive horning was the least of it…

Friends, over the past couple of months you may have noticed anonymous comments on some of our posts referring to “George” and “Jorge” and some sort of hit-and-run issue. Those comments referred to my brother George and came from inside the FPD. I let them go. Then. But not now.

This is a cautionary tale about a Culture of Corruption in the FPD that encourages the harassment of law abiding citizens. Getting a ticket from Barry Coffman for “excessive horning” is bad enough. Getting prosecuted for a non-existing “crime” is intolerable. Unfortunately this sort of thing has become business as usual with the FPD. It appears to be not only tolerated, but encouraged. And that’s what happens when the civilian authority abdicates its responsibility to oversee the cops.

Here’s the story.

Back on the morning of February 28, 2011 my brother George was driving east down Walnut Avenue, and turned right into the driveway of our office building parking lot. A car had parked quite close to the entry of the driveway, and as he turned in he heard a distinctive sound. After parking he noticed that the front bumper of the car was lying in the street.

He was pretty sure he hadn’t hit the car in any way, and there was no other damage to that car, or to his own vehicle; and he noticed that the bumper had been jerry-rigged at some point to stay on with sheet metal screws. He believed his right front tire just hit the thing as it lay in the roadway.

George kept watch on the car, and later in the afternoon a woman came to pick it up. He explained the situation and told Mrs. Bumper that he didn’t think he was responsible, but that he would help put the bumper back on with secure connections to the chassis the next day. She was grateful and drove off.

The next day her husband showed up and demanded that George buy him a new bumper. George suggested he go away and take his bumper with him.

Mr. Bumper filed a police report and soon George was interrogated by a couple of FPD cops. He told his story for the third time. The next thing he knew he was being charged by the District Attorney with Hit and Run, Unsafe Turn and Illegal Tampering With A Vehicle!

Story recap: No hit. No run. No unsafe turn. No tampering. No evidence. No witness. No nothing. Yet our esteemed DA, following the advice of FPD, had decided to prosecute my brother.

Of course George had to hire a lawyer who made six different court appearances on this idiotic “case.” Finally the DA blinked and offered George the DNA “spit and acquit” deal he makes with campaign-contributing food poisoners. George said no. With a trial date looming the DA’s office just dropped the whole thing on September 20th.

Here’s the case history.

Too bad, in a way. I really looked forward to seeing those FPD clowns on the stand to explain and defend their evidence. Now the public will never see the facts behind what can only be described as a malicious attempt to intimidate and harass me through my brother.

Well, guess what, boys? It didn’t work.

How much police, DA and court time and money was completely wasted in this effort to try to push around a citizen and taxpayer? Who knows? Five different DA employees had their spoons in this soup, as well as judges, bailiffs, court scribes, etc.

But I know one thing. There is an entrenched Culture of Corruption in the Fullerton Police Department that runs pretty deep, and it needs to end soon!

  1. I would demand a public explanation from the DA as to why he spent a red cent prosecuting this non-case.

    This is almost as bad as the Mam prosecution.

  2. Gee, we’re so sorry. It’s just that you and this damn blog have us going crazy what with all the nasty swipes and suchlike.

    1. The FPD and the D.A. have their priorities so grossly out of wack that this absolutely reeks of intimidation. The FPD were so concerned and determined to prosecute George for a jerry- rigged car bumper that was lying in the street and not concerned at all about prosecuting bad cops for murdering an unarmed, innocent man in the street. They didn’t even remove the bad cops from the streets for a month!! Let’s face it; they are used to getting away with murder. Intimidation is just one of the tools in their war chest against those who would hold them accountable.

      And, some people wonder why most of us don’t use our real names on this blog?? Most of us have enough problems in our lives already and don’t need any more, (and, unfortunately, can’t afford any more). KUDOS and THANK YOU to Tony, George, Chris and others, – true HEROES who put their lives, reputations and livelihoods on the line for us every day!!

  3. It is a shame that the FPD’s Culture of Corruption is supported by our wonderful DA…
    By the way Tony, if you don’t mind me asking, what did it cost your brother in attorney’s fees? If I were me or many others, (currently in BK mode) I wouldn’t have any money to hire an attorney and would have been rear-ended by these swinebags!
    So much for freedom and justice. Justice is NOT free, in fact it’s very expensive for many of us.
    Is there any justice the ‘not so well-off’?
    It sucks when you have to pay an exhorbant amount of money to prove your innocence, when there is a corrupt police department lying to the DAs and courts about crimes not committed by you.

  4. I applaud your stance of intolerance towards the corruption of our police force and our city, and I am quite aware of the huge target that has been placed on you and your family. I will not allow for you, or anyone else, to become the whipping boys for the Fullerton establishment.
    I will personally not rest until we have taken our fair town back from these tyrants, and placed her back to rest into the cradle of democracy and decency.

  5. Considering the Culture of Corruption that has been proven to exist over and over for years and years, is FPD finally:
    A) getting better
    B) staying about the same
    C) getting worse

    And, how many FPD cops are rotten?
    A) Just 1 or 2
    B) about 4 or 5
    C) about 10
    D) The whole fucking department

  6. I have seen fpd harass many of my friends growinfg up.

    I have been haeassed over the years as well.

    I think one component is how that piece of shit tony recockass and his cronies files charges and puts out sentances with a personal vindictiveness that is very costly, and often tragic.

    a huge part of the corruption of the fpd is the corrption and general unfairness that come out of the office of toney re cock ass. our da is one corrupt cop lover, and hater of the common man.

  7. Tony, we need to talk.. I’m serious.. There is an on-going investigation regarding personal information being posted on the blogs by possibly cops and/or their families. I have already spoken to Internal Affairs.

  8. Oh, snap, FPD and lovers of them -get ready for some serious Tebowing.

    Well they didnt have a hoof to stand on and knew it from day 1. Thats evil-ocity at its best

  9. TONY BUSHALA, CHRIS THOMPSON & PETITION CIRCULATORS

    HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AT LEAST 7 TIMES

    FULLERTON, CA – True to form Tony Bushala and his bullies have managed to get themselves arrested at least seven times by the Fullerton police department for trespassing while circulating recall petitions.

    Documents secured through the California Public Records Act and interviews with the complaining parties indicate that seven citizens’ arrests of Bushala, Thompson, and their paid circulators have occurred since September 9 when the recall petitions were certified for circulation.

    Nestled in between the personals and platonic, Bushala has been advertising for paid circulators on Craigslist – possibly to backfill his paid circulators that have been arrested.  Voter records indicate that Thompson has moved one non-Fullerton resident into his home and re-registered her (possibly committing fraud) to circulate petitions

    “Bushala has said he will spend $130,000 on this recall making him the largest special interest in Fullerton.  For that much money he should offer a course in common decency before imposing his mercenaries on the community,” declared committee chairman Larry Bennett.
     
    Bushala is currently under investigation by the Fair Political Practices Commission for failing to properly report over $30,000 in donations trying to influence the November 2010 Fullerton city council elections.

    As part of our ongoing campaign to educate Fullerton about Tony Bushala and Chris Thompson’s motivations and behavior during the circulation phase of the proposed recall, we have mailed the attached flier to voters throughout the city.

    “My conversations with the individuals that filed the trespassing charges reflect a group of people that behaved like thugs and offended customers at local supermarkets, leaving the private property owners no option but to call the police.  Bushala and Thompson say they support private property rights when it suits them.  These are seven cases currently under review at the District Attorney’s office,” stated Bennett.”

    “This is no way for school board trustee Chris Thompson to behave.  He should be setting an example for our kids by staying out of jail,” concluded Bennett.
     
    Each pending case at the DA’s office carries a penalty of up to six months in jail or $1000 fine.

    1. I have been approached and had conversations with Larry Bennett before I knew who Larry Bennett was the Chief Protagonist on the Anti -Recal site. Larry told me that this recall was all about Tony exploiting the Kelly Thomas case, and then went on to say that his business in Placentia had suffered damage at the hands of Kelly Thomas when he was still alive?
      When I told Larry that I didn’t believe him and was offended that he would speak ill of the dead, he started getting testy with me. When I asked Larry Bennett if had proof of his claim of Kelly Thomas’s vandalism via a filed a police report he really lost it and I thought he was going to cry?
      I can tell you from my own personal experience that in my honest opinion that Larry Bennett is the smarmiest, most insincere, uncaring indivual I ever met, and he actually made my skin crawl with his level of creepiness.

    2. Chris is setting a good example because he isn’t in jail. And the “arrests” were just bogus stunts provoked by Ellis and Ackerman with store managers who don’t know the law.

      But now you know how low they’ll go. 9 paragraphs without a single truthful statement.

    3. …note that not one of these citizens arrest or tresspassing violations have ever been prosecuted. What actually happens is some Anti-Recall twit like Larry Bennett goes in to the supermarket Manager, and starts crying about the signature gatherers from the recall collecting signatures out front, and asked that they call the cops to ask them to leave or go to jail.
      All I see is more intimidation and more harassment of those that are trying to change are city for the betterment of all it’s citizens, and I for one will not sit by quietly and take it from Larry Bennett and his ilk.

      1. Maybe someone should go randomly arrest Cousin Larry for being an idiot. Seven times. And the FPPC “investigation”, is he talking about the bogus complaint they keep filing which keeps getting dismissed by the FPPC? When the morons push, push back harder.

    4. Could Chris Thompson please clarify for the record how many times he has gone to jail for these offenses that Larry Bennett claims he has been in jail for?

    5. Please review and watch this link and remember that this is the type of individual that Larry Bennett thinks we deserve.

      Also remember that Larry bennett has served as F. Dick Jones and Pat McKinley’s Campaign Treasurer for them in their last election to our City Council.
      In return they put this putz as our new Planning Commissioner here in Fullerton, when Larry Bennett’s career field is in finance?

  10. My suggestion to the EVILDOERS in Fullerton, dont poke the sleeping giant of the International News Media, but it is very very late. Video is coming soon.

  11. Dirty low down demon seeds have no other recourse but to make up lies.

    This spitwad shit is a flyer?
    I was wondering where the link is that they are referring to-there isnt one cause none of it is true.

    Why dont all you babbling, inadequate, talentless baboons use your energy and money on mailers that actually point out why the three lack of lobes should continue playing council members instead -you must not think alot of the people of Fullerton

  12. It’s not just Fullerton, Brea & La Habra suffer the same problems and responsibility can be dropped directly at the feet of the corrupt gerrymandering politicians that run these three cities. The same clowns keep pushing honest candidates out of the elections because they are robbing the coffers blind. If you guys think Fullerton is bad off, take a look at the same type of crap happening in La Habra and then imagine having to pay an extra percentage point in sales taxes to cover the costs of this self serving bull shite. It’s enough to make some folks (me included) want to puke. Good luck and keep up the good fight.

  13. Ive been taught that, overweight people have no respect for themselves so why would you expect them to have any respect for anybody. Thats a general statement, not always true, but look at how they are SO willing to destroy their Community. Lack of empathy or feelings, is very dangerous as we can see here. In recent polling, 86% of Americans feel that the US congress are not there for the American people, but for themselves.

    1. I’ve always maintained that we cannot love others until we learn to love ourselves.
      How can you give away something that you do not possess yourself?

  14. “For that much money he should offer a course in common decency before imposing his mercenaries on the community,” declared committee chairman Larry Bennett.

    Mr Bennett I hear that a college in town is going to offer a new course. I hear that the instructors are members of an elite cadre of FPD’s finest mercinaries. The course is called “deep tissue desensitization”. It is a form of shiatsu massage that the ancients used in eastern europe and North Korea. It involves the use of tasers, knee drops, bare fists, and blunt objects. They start at the face and they work their way down to the torso and eventually the patient acheives totall bliss as a result of organ failure. I hear they are looking for volunteers for the students to “practice” on. I just thought that you might be interested sir. Sign ups are available on your website.

  15. It appears FPD simply made another mistake.
    Once again, they got the Wrong Guy!
    I wonder if you guys can get a report on how many wrong guys the FPD has bent over in an attempt to make unlawful arrests like with Veth Mam? Also, how many of those were the DA willing to cornhole without cause?

    1. There was nothing about this that suggests they got the wrong guy. The swine taking the report recognized the name and probably had a quick chat with Goodrich and Coffman, who knows, maybe even Sellers.

      Somebody in charge decided to falsely prosecute with zero evidence. Ditto the Do-nothing DA.

      1. Just like with Mam, there was no ‘wrong guy’ or guy period. It was just their excuse to rough someone up, but Goodrich told the media, quoting words from Hamilton, “it appears we got the wrong guy”.
        What I should have requested is how many wrongful arrests in general have been committed by FPD and latched on to by the DA hoping for a successful prosecution on the innocent?

        1. As long as “Arrest and Prosecute” is the goal of LE, then it will be done by any means necessary.

          Protect and serve will require some actual thinking.

          I realize this isn’t FPD, but wrongful convictions are happening everywhere in the US. There has to be a way to address this. Oh right.

          Thank you for this blog.

          “The wrongful incarcerations occurred more than 1,480 times in the last five years. Many of those mistakenly held inside the county’s lockups had the same names as suspects or had their identities stolen.

    2. There was no mistake, they knew exactly who it was, and like the mob, just took opportunity to get Tony by proxy.

      Bastards. and the same with the husband, an obvious coplicker.

  16. Anonymous :
    When is someone going to prosecute the DA? This is ridiculous and certainly criminal.

    I hope that the FBI is citing these cases, as they are already in the process of monitoring and auditing the Fullerton Police department for civil rights violations.
    One would think that harassment and intimidation by the status quo’s police force, and co-defendant District Attorney, would certainly seem to fall under the auspices of our civil rights being breeched.

  17. If someone was smart they would not be in a, EVIL CORRUPT CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION.

    We need more Federal Judges to help us.

  18. Friendly Neighbor :Tony. You are welcome at my place. Maybe we can lob spitballs. ; )

    LOL!

    @ Tony: All I can say is Wow man. I’m sorry your brother (and you for that matter) have to put up with petty crap like this. With any luck it will all be behind you soon. 😉

  19. How do you get charged with hit and run on your own damned property, while you’re still on the property?

    FPD is a joke.

  20. Tony Bushala contributes large amounts of Money to Shawn Nelson’s for the run for county supervisor. T-Rack the OC DA works for Shawn Nelson. T-Rack prosecuting the Bushala’s for any crimes……slim to none. Follow the money…for this is Fullertons Future.

    1. and your point…?
      I worked for a celebrity’s manager, but never got tickets to a premier, free restaurant deals or hotels.

      Follow the smell of the tip of your nose, troll.

  21. I had never heard of Tony Bushala until Kelly Thomas was killed. When I heard him interviewed on KFI, I liked him instantly. He was a champion for Kelly on the CNN interview. I like the whole family now after learning about this. Yes. I remember those posts about George and wondered if the District Attorney and FPD were out for unwarranted vengeance. Well, they took their shot and lost. Now, the Bushala family better be the safest family in town.

  22. You forgot the part whe the victim returned to her car and found George under it trying to repair it before the damage was discovered. Oh well details. The cops should have told the victim if this incident involves the multimillionaire developer Tony Bushala or any of his kin. We will not respond to take your report. He’s untouchable, for you see the OCDA T-rack works for Tony by proxy thru the County Supervisors Office.

    Tony and his kin are above the law. money talks….for this is Fullertons Future

    1. You must know everything about everything-get your weekly world news from the Enquirer too?

      And again, your point, troll? the issue is the 3 worthless t-rex’s, not Tony or George Bushala, besides its none of your bidness-ignorant, loose mouth garbage monger

      1. Joe Sipowicz
        Aha! The Fullerton FPD strikes again. Too bad charges were dropped!

        Yes Tony money well spent! Just think how things will be when you own the whole city counsel?

        1. Haha, did you hear the Grand Imperial Poobah of his loyal order of Water Buffalos, Larry Bennett get exposed for the lying roid he is, on the radio air waves? oh KFI has over a million listeners -whoops-your bad.
          offense offense.

          What lying filth Bennett is (it must be you on here hopping onto different user names, I’ve decided-cause )

  23. “Ive been taught that, overweight people have no respect for themselves so why would you expect them to have any respect for anybody.”

    Helps me understand why would a big bully Ramos might pick on a little skinny guy like Kelly. Kelly had to much respect for himself to allow himself to be bullied. “He was heard by taxis a few weeks before this telling a police officers by the train station” I’m not leaving here, take me to jail if you want.”
    Not cowering to a cowardly behavior must have made Ramos furious.

    this is a good place to start.

  25. Erin do you agree with this statement?

    “Ive been taught that, overweight people have no respect for themselves so why would you expect them to have any respect for anybody.”

    Well Erin?

    1. A troll hiding.. Pathetic.. You can put a golden earring in a PIGS nose and it’s still a PIG!! At least I can lose weight, however, you can lose your ugly personality..

    1. Wrong Guy.. No worries.. I’m obviously a huge threat to this city because when I speak at city council meetings and put TRUTH on the record. These PIGS can’t stand it.. Makes me stronger.. I’m so looking forward to making sure the FPD is disbanded..

  26. Tony, I’m so glad you spoke up on this. Enough is enough. The creeps love to spew, twist and spin garbage and have made you the recipient of most of it. It’s been heartbreaking and maddening at the same time. You’re damned if you defend yourself and damned if you don’t. Just remember: “those who matter don’t care and those who don’t care don’t matter”.

    As for the misinformed Neanderthal a few posts above who clearly has comprehension challenges, he or she really needs to learn to differentiate between accused and charged and convicted. Anyone can accuse anyone of anything. It takes a real genius to spin accusations and insinuations into facts. It takes an even bigger genius to buy into them and believe them. Oh and for those that fall into that challenged group, my use of the word genius is pure sarcasm. In case there was any doubt…

    1. lol I screwed up that quote…it’s more like:
      (In reference to the lies about Tony)
      “Those who don’t care (about the lies and rumors), matter.
      Those who do, don’t. “

  27. I think it’s rather funny that all the trolls on this site have on me is my weight.. Hahahahahaha I can’t stop laughing.. Bring on PIGS!!! I’m so looking forward to expected litigation for Erin verses The City of Fullerton on the agenda soon.. Keep it coming.. I’m already laughing all the way to the bank..

    1. seriously her weight?WTF? Cant say anything about her message huh? Cant defend what she’s throwin out there….gees you seem to be ok with pole smoker sellers making thousands a month doin nothing–but its erin’s weight that is the issue- geesus christ your side is worse off than I thought.

      1. That trolls been on here the last couple of days taking swings at people……..

        She said last night she was going be frying some crow……..

          1. She’s an idiot……You can’t tell her anything…..she logged in as anonymous last night…I think her boyfriend is that cop that has a hangup with basements in his posts……

  28. Erin :
    hahahaha vw type 53a…At least the trolls are admitting who they really are..

    They always do. You overreact to them though…just leave them be. 😉

  29. Hell no.. They dish it out, they better be ready to get shit all over them

    Hell no!! Because when I find out who they really are, well.. They can fill in the blanks..

  30. How low can we sink. From what I have read, lower than whale crap. Peace Officers and their family members and Fullerton residents in a word war. No respect on either side. Shame on all of us.
    I do believe in the FFFF blog, for some of the information they publish, but how do we fix this? I for one can’t wait to see if the recall will succeed. Time will tell. To be honest I don’t think even a successful recall will help. Just more dumb asses waiting in line, to be voted in.

  31. Erin :Hell no.. They dish it out, they better be ready to get shit all over them
    Hell no!! Because when I find out who they really are, well.. They can fill in the blanks..

    I talk shit about you all the time..Who am I? How are you gonna find out..Free blog even if you do find out, though you wont. What are you gonna do about it..Erin???

    If I am so what…You got a problem with it. You do? Deal with it.

    1. Ha ha..we are getting to you..awesome! loooser who keeps her head on by pretending your officer husband cares…he doesnt ……get mad all you want- your man cheats and you defend it cuz you want his pension..we have names for people like that..its called a whore- you sleep with yur man because you want his pension…ewww cop fucker.nothing lower.

  34. Its leadership, your not going to change a psycopath. And when leadership is ignorant or has its own twisted evil issues you get this situation were in. “If they were smart they would not be in an evil corrupt criminal organization.”

    The way honer and hypocrisy is displayed in this situation is more evil and narcissistic than ironic.

  35. I thought parking lot dents and dings were what small claims and insurance companies were for? I have been told in the past if it was on private property and no one was injured…. call your insurance company.

    1. This gave this corrupt mafiosa an excuse to pop a Bushala (probably wanted to do that for years) and get protected by a web of government coplickers and policies.
      The dude and his wife who reported it knew that too and saw dollar signs

      Any copper who didnt think they were above the law for something like this, would have written down insurance info, given it to the parties involved and thats it.

      But it sounds like Mr.nd Mrs Bumper decided to make a mountain out of a non existent molehill with the gestapo’s blessings just for money.
      The FPD Nazi’s had other ideas, knew it wouldnt play out, but wanted to cause as much inconvience as possible. Sick baboons and that goes for anyone who is in agreeance with this.

      1. a cop or two may have advised the Bumper’s to file the report so the cops could f with Bushala and the Bumpers could get a new bumper

  36. Corrupt :I thought parking lot dents and dings were what small claims and insurance companies were for? I have been told in the past if it was on private property and no one was injured…. call your insurance company.

    Exactly right.

  37. Although the Millionaire developer Tony Bushala may think he owns the public street in front of his office, it is public and belongs to the citizens.

    1. WTH are you talking about?

      And who, besides you, really thinks that is damn important to post?

      Now, puff, off with you, get back to your donuts. No one cares what you think, box of rocks, and if they do, they are in the same lodge of liars, as you.

    2. Shall I list the cities where I have been bumped and the cops told me it was a civil matter and to take it up with my insurance, Oceanside (rear ended at light), Santa Ana (backed into), Irvine (hit in parking lot). Corona (rear ended at light)…. each and everytime the cops told me since no personal injury to take it to small claims or deal with my insurance…… guess FPD cops are different.

    Next time tell them you have pain. An injury and they have to take a report.

  39. Next time tell them you have pain. An injury and they have to take a report.

    That may be true, but in this case there was no one in the car to tell anyone they were in pain, so your post is irrelevant.

  40. Back to the story at hand.

    If even 51% of this story is accurate, it was a civil matter at best.

    FAR from a misdemeanor hit and run, and LOL on the vehicle tampering.

    Vehicle tampering was intended to prosecute those who REMOVE parts from vehicles, NOT trying to put them back on.

    Not ONE ELEMENT of the crime established by the cops that is for sure. For the legal beagels NO CORPUS that even justifie a police report to the DA.

    When the parties met face to face no matter how brief it was, the hit and run was DEAD in the water. See California Vehcile Code section 20002 (a)

    I’d love to see the police report on that one.

    WAS the report was full of lies, which would make it a crime for the cops? A felony to be specific.

    The person charged in this crime SHOULD have filed a complaint with Internal Affairs.

    If it had ANY of the facts as stated by the writer of this thread contained in the report, then the DA who filed the case in the first place was asleep at the wheel.

    The fact that the person charged demanded a jury trial, and the case was dismissed shortly there after speaks VOLUMNS, and adds credibility to the person challenging the incident.

    At this point it sounds like retaliation in the first degree. And argument can surely be made supporting that.

    For the clown who attempted to suggest the writer is a crook because he was arrested, is no doubt an idiot cop who hasn’t done much real cop work.

    An arrest means NOTHING, it’s only a conviction that has any teeth when challenging one’s character.

    This case, the horn honking ticket writing incident, and the many others discussed on this blog suggest a serious problem within FPD.

    Those who feel they could be or have been retaliated against for their participation in local politics NEED to start a file on ALL these incidents.

    You really don’t need a high dollar lawyer to represent you. A decent Public Defender knows how to hack away and bad police work.

    Someone said on another thread the citizens need to carry a video camera, penal code and a 45 cal pistol?

    I’d say a video camera would be in order if this is the type of conduct citizens face in Fullerton.

    Bottom line is this incidents need to be compiled to show a clear pattern and practice of FPD.

    Cops use prior incidents ALL the time to try and justifie many things, SO CAN the citizens.

    It’s a two way street, it always has been.

    I hope the administrators of this site might try and get a copy of the police report in this case, and maybe consider putting it into a PDF type file and let ALL of use read this report.

    We would not want RI telling everyone this is another speculative, opinionated,biased response to alledged misconduct.

    Has anyone or is anyone considering a law suit in a class action sense against FPD for this type of retaliatory conduct?

    One thing for sure FPD’s conduct if well documented can surely show others citizens have a right and justified reason to fear them.

    I decent civil rights lawyer could have a field day with incidents like this.

  41. From the California Penal Code.

    118.1. Every peace officer who files any report with the agency
    which employs him or her regarding the commission of any crime or any
    investigation of any crime, if he or she knowingly and intentionally
    makes any statement regarding any material matter in the report
    which the officer knows to be false, whether or not the statement is
    certified or otherwise expressly reported as true, is guilty of
    filing a false report punishable by imprisonment in the county jail
    for up to one year, or in the state prison for one, two, or three
    years. This section shall not apply to the contents of any statement
    which the peace officer attributes in the report to any other person.

  42. I know it is a little late but T-Rac doesn’t work for Shawn Nelson, he works for Mike Schroeder and Mike’s wife, Susan Kang Schroeder! That has been an obvious know fact for many, many years. It is on the advise of Mike Schroeder, who charges were filed against and what charges were filed in the Kelly Thomas murder case. The chages will stick, T-Rac will win the case, just in-time for re-election. That’s where this whole thing is going. The rest of them will be charged by the FBI, then all named in the civil suit. It is an easy trail to follow. T-Rac comes off witha big win just in time for the election.

  43. Im reposting from yesterday in case anybody missed these links to the F.B.I.

    ” “Policing requires perfection and unyielding ethics and ultimately depends on each employee’s own level of knowledge, rationality, and devotion to moral excellence. Anything less than perfect ethical conduct can be disastrous for a department, a community, and an entire nation. While officers are only human and will continue to make mistakes, ethical misconduct cannot be tolerated.” ” -Police Corruption, An Analytical Look into Police Ethics By RICH MARTIN, M.S.

    FBI Website. “Research into police corruption offers some understanding of the phenomenon”

    Public Corruption
    Why It’s Our #1 Criminal Priority -FBI website
    Question: Why is public corruption so high on the FBI’s list of investigative priorities?
    Answer: Because of its impact. Corrupt public officials undermine our country’s national security, our overall safety, the public trust, and confidence in the U.S. government, wasting billions of dollars along the way. This corruption can tarnish virtually every aspect of society. -FBI website
