Los Angeles, CA Full Disclosure Network® provides "the news behind the news" in this interview with Bruce Whitaker, a Fullerton City Council member, who explains his frustration with the City bureaucracy. He describes how his efforts to get to the truth were stonewalled when he got inaccurate or incomplete information from the City regarding the death of Kelly Thomas, a mentally ill homeless man, who was beaten to death by Fullerton Police officers.
Councilman Whitaker says the City officials should be held accountable when the government obstructs the flow of information to the City Council members who are their bosses. He says it is not OK for City employees to put out false reports and there should be consequences. He is calling for government transparency and for the City to make public the audio and video tapes of what took place during the beating of Kelly Thomas.
