So Whatever Happened to Dino Skokos?
You remember Dino, right? He was the guy who retired from the LA Sheriff Department with a disability and then took a job as a campus security guard at Fullerton Junior College.
In October 2016 Dino assaulted a student for failing to acknowledge his august authority:
FFFF followed up, here, and here to document the remarkable lack of progress in separating this miscreant from his source of employment. Recently FFFF asked the North Orange College Community College District for a list of employees on administrative leave to see what sort of fish might be caught in the broad net. Here’s what we got back:
Fullerton College Employees on Administrative Leave from January 1, 2016 to present:
Robert Smitson – Fall 2015 to January 31, 2016
Jerry Stokes – Fall 2015 to January 31, 2016
Cynthia Wafer – September 2, 2016 to October 31, 2016
Dino Skokos – October 14, 2016 to September 30, 2017
Eileen Anguiano – February 28, 2017 to May 3, 2017
Scott Goss – May 18, 2017 to August 31, 2017
Beverly Pipkin – June 27, 2017 to July 31, 2017
Alan Gonzalez – June 29, 2017 until further notice
For some reason Skokos is not only still on leave, that leave is projected to continue for another ten weeks, meaning that the guy who attacked and falsely arrested that kid will have been on administrative leave for almost one year.
There are still lots of questions that haven’t been answered, and some that have not yet been asked (until now), such as:
- What happened to the “independent” investigator, Currier and Hudson?
- How much has Currier and Hudson charged us for their “services?”
- Has the student who was assaulted and falsely arrested sued the taxpayers, and if so, what are the details?
- Was there a settlement when no one was looking?
- What happened to the Fullerton Police Department in all of this; did they ever bother investigate this themselves? If not, why not?
Here’s the choice nugget from the FJC president as quoted in The Hornet, way back in October, 2016, reassuring his workers, educrats and students that FJC is dedicated in settling this matter:
President Greg Schulz promised the college’s full dedication in reaching a conclusion regarding the incident.
And next time you see her clucking and harrumphing about town be sure to ask your NOCCCD Trustee, Molly McClanahan, what the Hell is going on. Good luck getting an intelligible answer!

Thanks, I had forgotten all about this – which was exactly what Mr. Schulz was hoping. How in the world could this still be dragging out? The video evidence is perfectly clear.
he works for the Metropolitan State Hospital as a police officer
They’re really investigating hard. Any day now this meathead will be brought to justice.
There is no reason to have campus security hired directly by NOCCCD. They should contract with to a private company – not only would it be far cheaper, Dino would have been fired months ago – and he would have stopped working at Fullerton College the day after the beating went public.
Even better, Skokos would have never beaten that kid because he would have known that he could get fired for it.
Go investigate their Math Lab. Yes the instructors are helpful and nice most of the students too. Beware of a Hijab wearing women just like the worst Administration. Will trick you to get what she wants. A good school some bad people occupied there.
The independent investigator is just a lawyer who’s job is to minimize the agency’s liability. It has nothing to do with truth or justice. It’s the opposite, actually. Shulz is full of shit, and he knows it.
Clearly, the hammer needs to come down on this Skokos dude. But, while he’s on “administrative leave”, is he still “earning” a salary?
I believe the answer is yes. please make sure to ask Molly.
Schulz is having an “open forum” today at 2:00 pm. Hopefully someone will ask about Dino’s status.
