    So it wasn’t surprising when, in July 2011, the Fullerton political establishment rushed to the defense of officers who had beaten a 130-pound homeless schizophrenic named Kelly Thomas. The public saw the published photo of Thomas’ horribly swollen and bruised face, yet the mayor went on TV saying he had seen worse injuries in the Vietnam War and that it was unclear what killed Thomas, who died in a hospital days after the whomping. We also learned that police officers confiscated the video camera of a bystander and were allowed to watch the surveillance video of the incident and essentially...

    Taking a stand.You may have heard about this story, although maybe not as much as we're hearing about it in the Detroit-area media. It happened last week, when a man from the suburbs named Steven Utash accidently hit a young boy with his car, then jumped out of the car to check on the boy. A mob of approximately 12 youths, having seen the car hit the boy, subsequently attacked Utash and severely beat him.It now looks as if Utash is going to live, but we're only hearing today about the reason the beating apparently stopped short of killing him.Writing...
