Lost Police Car

Last year, the City of Fullerton received a toll road violation for a police cruiser driving on the I-10 toll lane in East Los Angeles.  They have no idea who was driving it, or why it was in Los Angeles that day. I wonder what else is poorly accounted for at the Fullerton Police Department? […]

Is Fullerton PD Illegally Destroying Records?

Last September it was revealed that the Long Beach Police Department was using a phone app, known as TigerText, to send encrypted and self-deleting messages. From the article: Two of the officers claimed that they were also instructed by their superiors to use the app to “have conversations with other officers that wouldn’t be discoverable”. […]

Fight a Paramedic, Win a $100K

Remember when Chief Hendricks left Fullerton after his run-in with some paramedics at a Lady Antebellum concert? It looks like we hired a PR firm to polish the turd of a Press Release and even the consultant admitted that Domer slobbering all over Hendricks looked bad since we were paying Hendricks to leave (emphasis added): […]

The following email shows that the Internal Affairs investigation into Lieutenant Katheryn Hamel started on or around August 02, 2018. This smells of a conflict considering the date of that fateful Lady Antebellum […]

No Public Input on the Police Chief

Well folks, Fullerton is at it again. On Tuesday, without any public input, the City Council is slated to appoint Interim Police Chief Robert Dunn as the “Permanent” Chief for the Fullerton Police Department. I put “Permanent” in quotes because Chiefs tend to leave in disgrace often around these parts. The position of Police Chief […]

Profiles in Courage

During a quick stop at the on-line Fullerton Observer I read an article by Jane Rands about a dope forum held by the folks at NUFF – an organization of mostly geriatric liberals whose mission seems to be to promote safely pro-government candidates and causes. Aha, thought I, perhaps someone will stand up for the […]

Fitzgerald Quits Fullerton City Council

Today Jennifer Fitzgerald announced her resignation from the Fullerton Council, effective immediately. “I can no longer even pretend to fulfill all the oaths I swore when I became a councilperson,” said Fitzgerald. “All the developer shakedowns, all the lies, all the influence peddling – I just can’t keep track of it all anymore. Balanced budgets, […]
