I watched this wife and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Sharma tell their family’s incredibly scary story and I could not believe the inhuman, insensitive and uncaring treatment by Fullerton Mayor and OC Supervisor want a be Doug Chaffee. Mrs. Sharma was very distraught, yet the Mayor cut her off before she could finish her story because she had gone over her allotted three minutes of time.

Apparently the Mayor was more concerned that the meeting end a few minutes earlier for him than with this woman’s heart breaking story and making sure that the city takes proper and complete action to make it more unlikely that it would every happen again. Doug Chaffee is a poor excuse for a human being. He now incredulously wants to be our OC Supervisor. To quote you Mayor Chaffee….”YOUR TIME IS UP!!!! Joe Imbriano calls Doug Chaffee the Mayor from Hell. Well Joe I do not know if that is where he comes from but I can assure you that Mayor Doug Chaffee will at the end of his life end up in HELL and Deservedly So!!

The arrogant, pompous Doug Chaffee gave this distraught mother 260 SECONDS to attempt to tell her frightening story about what transpired and how both EV Free and Mercy House had some responsibly for apparently violating the city code for dealing with the homeless. Doug Chaffee said at the end that the daughter needs medical i.e. psychiatric help. How about you Mayor Doug Chaffee enforce the city code on EV Free and Mercy House? How about you do your F-ing job? Unfortunately, he was in too much of a rush to get home a few minutes earlier by cutting off this distraught woman. I remember not to long ago when ex-council member Jan Flory got up to speak during public comments and the council members, many the same as today gave her well over 10 minutes to go on and on and on! They only enforce the rules when members of the public who are not their buddies get up to speak no matter how important the topic as was the case here! Chaffee is a pompous, arrogant, unfeeling, insensitive piece of garbage who is much more concerned about how much time is given to a Fullerton citizen then actually making sure this failure by Mercy House, EV Free and the City of Fullerton does not happen again!! Remember this atrocious behavior by Doug Chaffee who is running for OC Supervisor when you go to vote for that position later this year!

Could it be that Doug Chaffee who is a big supporter of Mercy House did not want to hold them accountable for their apparent failure to run a homeless shelter within the rules for shelters of the City of Fullerton? Want to hear a really good joke? This poor excuse for a Mayor and a human being now wants to be our next OC Supervisor! You got to be kidding us!!

Her husband told Mayor Chaffee that it was unfortunate that he cut off his wife’s comments. In response Mayor Chaffee stated “we extended the time well beyond” the 3 minutes allotted to her. Well I went back to the video Mr. Mayor and I guess your definition to going well beyond the allotted 3 minutes is to give her a whopping additional 80 seconds to tell her very important story. I do not know how many tens of hours of comments others and I have had to endure about your various vacation trips or which function you and your wife attended. All of that is such self-serving drivel. But when it comes to something really important you gave her an additional 80 SECONDS! How incredibly magnanimous of you Mr. Mayor!

Council member Jennifer Fitzgerald as usual was as phony as a three-dollar bill. It is not her fault really; because it is the only way she knows how to deal with the Fullerton public. She made this PR statement after all the public speakers had spoken for the evening. She said as follows: “I want to say to the Sharma’s how sorry I am that this happened to you and your family and um to your neighbors who came. It really is obviously um awkward for us up here, I mean we have, we do have a protocol we follow with 3 minutes of speakers speaking on public comments.” She goes on to state “We don’t get into discussions with people who come up during public comment”.

Jennifer Fitzgerald became Vice President of Curt Pringle & Associates only after her election to the council

Why don’t you Council member Fitzgerald respond to people with city issues especially when it deals with our safety It is your choice to ignore us at the podium Council member Fitzgerald. It is more than just awkward for the public who you and your cohorts choose to ignore us. I have seen many instances when someone has praised the council and you respond to them all the time. Like I said Jennifer Fitzgerald is as phony as a 3-dollar bill. The only restraint you have as a council member Ms. Fitzgerald is talking about an upcoming scheduled agenda item. You could have spoken to this issue to your hearts content if you really wanted to serve the people. But we both know that is not why you sit on that dais Ms. Fitzgerald.

Jennifer Fitzgerald became Vice President of Curt Pringle & Associates only after her election to the council

The Executive Director of Mercy House sounded very sincere and I do not mean to ignore the good works his organization does in the community. However, he must be totally honest with Fullertonians when it comes to a situation like the one disuccsed above. Unfortunately, he was not entirely forthcoming with his statements. He stated as follows: “I can’t prevent human movement.” Yet it is my understanding that your non-profit along with EV Free picked up these homeless from Santa Ana and dropped them off in Fullerton. So Mr. Larry Haynes you did in fact have a lot of control as to where these homeless people were the day and night in question because it was your group that brought them into our community sir. Mr. Sharma also stated that to run a homeless shelter in Fullerton you are required to find the homeless another place if you turn them away. You did not follow that rule and according to Mr. Sharma you failed to follow other rules as well. This is in your purview sir and certainly not out of your control. So when you all stop doing your PR cover-up, it would be very appropriate if you would at the very least actually run your homeless shelter within the rules the City of Fullerton has laid out for you and that the City of Fullerton actually enforce those rules. Isn’t that a novel idea Fullertonians? It would be appropriate if before you made the decision to pick up the homeless from other locations and then bring them into our city that you attempted to do some kind of background check of those people. It would be nice that once you brought them here that you had some responsibility for their whereabouts and their actions. Mr. Sharma indicated that EV Free has security guards to assist them with dealing with the homeless. It shows that they have real concerns for their own safety. It is a darn shame that they apparently do not have the same level of concern for their fellow Fullertonians. That is NOT the definition of a Good Neighbor!

One more point about Mercy House. I pulled up their website and I learned that there one member of the organization, James Brooks who is their Orange County Program Director, Emergency Services and also on their Board of Directors. That very much appears to be a conflict of interest and I will ask Mr. Haynes to explain why this person has this dual role.

Everyone who spoke from the City of Fullerton and those responsible for the shelter, i.e. Mercy House and EV Free took no real responsibility at the last council meeting. And saying your sorry without taking responsibility and without taking real steps to ensure that this is much less likely to occur again is just a bunch of empty words. We demand that such organizations such as EV Free and Mercy House do more than come to our Fullerton City Council with words that amounts to not much more than CYA’s in my humble opinion! Finally, we expect that the City of Fullerton take action against these organizations when they fail to live up to the City Codes for running a homeless shelter. You noticed that none of the above was specifically dealt with or addressed during the council meeting.


PS: Council member’s Bruce Whitaker’s comments after all the public comments were over and he was asked by Mayor Chaffee if he had anything to say at this time were as follows: “Not at this time Mr. Mayor.” Once again Bruce Whitaker displayed his total lack of courage to speak out about the most important issues facing the good people of Fullerton. What a guy! What a poor example of leadership Whitaker displayed by being as quiet as a church mouse!

Below Is A City News Service Article About The Kelly Thomas Murder Trial And Specifically The Testimony Of One Fullerton Police Department (FPD) Training Officer Steven Rubio With My Comments As Well. By Barry Levinson

“SANTA ANA — A corporal who trained two officers on trial in the fatal beating of a homeless man in Fullerton testified today that they acted mostly within the city’s policy when they dealt with the suspect.

Cpl. Stephen Rubio testified that ex-Officer Manuel Ramos may have strayed from policy when he used profanity as he spoke with Kelly Thomas prior to the deadly struggle at the Fullerton Transportation Center on July 5, 2011, but otherwise acted properly. 

Rubio added that ex-Cpl. Jay Cicinelli used his stun gun properly, including when he deployed it as an “improvisational tool” for punching the transient in the head.

“In the video, I honestly don’t see anything out of policy there,” Rubio said when discussing Cicinelli striking Thomas with the butt of the gun.

Cicinelli was trained in how to keep a suspect from taking away his weapon, which defense attorneys claim Thomas was trying to do during the struggle, Rubio testified.

It wouldn’t be “practical” for Cicinelli to have discarded the weapon during the struggle if it wasn’t working because Thomas could have retrieved it, Rubio said. The “loud clacking” of the stun gun that can be heard on the video indicates it was not working as it should to subdue the suspect, he said.

When asked if Cicinelli was right to strike Thomas in the head with the stun gun, Rubio testified the police department’s policy “allows for the improvisation of a tool or weapon under certain circumstances.”

As for Ramos putting on latex gloves and then holding up his fists to Thomas before threatening to “(expletive) you up” if he didn’t follow orders, Rubio said the defendant properly used a “conditional threat.”

Rubio added, “The profanity is a little off color, a slight policy violation.”


Although the profanity was “unprofessional,” using the threat to avoid a physical fight was OK “for the greater good,” Rubio testified.

Assistant District Attorney Jim Tanizaki got Rubio to acknowledge that “improvised weapons” are OK under the department’s policy when “reasonable,” and that there’s an admonition against head strikes with an impact weapon.

Rubio also testified, under questioning by Tanizaki, that after the first deployment of a stun gun, a suspect must be given time to comply with orders because the immediate reaction to a Taser might be improperly construed as resistance.

When Tanizaki pressed Rubio on whether a suspect should be given more than one chance to comply, the corporal resisted.

Rubio testified that he recalled Cicinelli struck Thomas four to six times with the stun gun. But after he was shown the video in court, he revised his estimate to three times.

“I see his arm moving back in a circular motion, but I can’t tell if that’s a strike or not,” Rubio testified.

Officer Kenton Hampton can be seen on the video jumping away from the struggle, an “indication he got a bit of that Taser discharge,” Rubio testified.

Tanizaki questioned Rubio on whether Ramos’ threat to Thomas could be viewed as a provocative act.

“Do you agree words can foster and create an environment for confrontation?” the prosecutor asked.

“It’s possible,” Rubio responded.

Tanizaki also questioned Rubio about a part of the policy that discourages threats to mentally disabled suspects.

“With respect to individuals who are mentally disabled, aren’t you taught to avoid threats?” Tanizaki asked.

“Once again, it depends,” Rubio replied.

The prosecutor asked Rubio if he trained Ramos to not threaten mentally disabled suspects.

“I taught him to communicate with people effectively whether they were mentally ill or not,” Rubio said. “You try to treat everyone with calming language … That’s what we try to teach.”

Rubio also testified that blows to some parts of the head are less dangerous than others, and that the plastic stun gun would be “not as dangerous” as a police baton, or asp.

Retired FBI use-of-force expert John Wilson Jr. testified for the prosecution last week that Ramos and Cicinelli did not follow proper procedures. Wilson testified that Ramos “aggressively slapped” at Thomas and that he had reason to fear the police and run from them.

“I have problems with everything that happened after” Ramos put on the gloves and held up his fists to the homeless man, Wilson testified.

Wilson also testified that it was “not be good proper police procedure” for Cicinelli to strike Thomas with the butt of a stun gun.

Ramos is charged with second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter and Cicinelli is charged with involuntary manslaughter and excessive force.”


This is a must read: Pure evil- Who did this to Kelly Thomas and what they did to Kelly Thomas must never be forgotten until justice is served.



Dana Pape, the step mom of Kelly Thomas and Tina, the sister of Kelly Thomas both spoke at Public Comments last night at the Fullerton City Council.

They spoke from their hearts and they spoke the truth. The pain of loosing a loved one does not diminish much over time especially when justice was not served at all.

Comment To Those That Are Heartless! Yes you should care about what happened to Kelly Thomas and not rationalize that because he was homeless and mentally ill that he was somehow less of a person. He died a horrific death, murdered by members of the FPD. They were not found guilty but what do you call that senseless brutal beating with three, then four, then five and finally six officers present at various times during the horrific assault carried out by some of FPD’s so-called finest? What do you call that beating death of an innocent man as proclaimed by none other than former Police Chief Danny Hughes. Hughes stated that he was an innocent man officially at a City Council meeting. Yet his training officer Steven Rubio testified under oath that no Fullerton policies or procedures were broken that fateful night.

Meet Training officer Rubio “In the video, all things considered, I don’t see anything out of policy,” Rubio said.


Kelly Thomas after no procedures were violated according to Rubio


Training officer Rubio on the right pictured with Pat McKinley on the left who proudly proclaimed on TV that “I hired em all” referring to the killers cops that murdered Kelly Thomas including hiring a one eyed cop Jay Cicinelli who failed to meet even the most minimum standards-


Pat Mckinley pictured on the right- a police chief who didn’t even follow his own departments rules or procedures when it came to hiring a one eyed cop-

The highest ranking officer on the scene, Sgt. Kevin Craig testified under oath that no Fullerton policies or procedures were broken that fateful night.

Sgt Kevin Craig was named supervisor of the year by his union after helping the killers go free.

Kelly Thomas after no procedures were violated according to Craig

Question to Danny Hughes now retired and VP of Security for the self proclaimed Happiest Place on Earth, Disneyland. How could two of your officers testify under oath that no FPD policies or procedures were broken that night let alone criminal statutes, when you proclaimed he was an innocent man?


Kelly Thomas after no procedures were violated

Is that what your Fullerton Policies and Procedures manual calls for former Police Chief Danny Hughes? Does your FPD Policies and Procedure Manual state that it is within procedure for FPD officers to start a savage gang attack on an innocent man resulting in his death? Not one of the officers present had the decency to say to all the other officers enough already, while Kelly was repeatedly and incredibly courteously pleading for his life, referring to all of them as sir.

When I watched the entire video, there were so many thoughts floating through my mind.

First I thought as bad as I had heard the beating was there was nothing to prepare me for the savagery and the total lack of any reason to hit Kelly Thomas not even once let alone hundreds of times.

Second, it hit me that a homeless mentally ill man was the only person who acted sanely that evening. In my humble opinion it was the cops who acted like mentally deranged savages.

Thirdly, I thought how horrible, how unimaginable to die needlessly in that fashion. The actions of those police officers present was so brutal, so inhuman and so barbaric.

And now two of them Cincinelli and Wolfe are suing the City of Fullerton for their jobs back with back pay.




Finally, in my opinion due to the statements of one Danny Hughes


Dan Hughes pictured on the right with one of “his untouchables” FPD PIO Radus on the left. “One piece of evidence introduced in the Irish arbitration that shed some light on the Fullerton Culture of Corruption was a copy of a poster that was hanging in the locker of Fullerton Police PIO Sgt. Jon Radus. It is a photo-shop likeness of a movie poster from the movie the “Untouchables”. It depicts the face of Dan Hughes overlooking a gun toting gang of thirty’s era cops with the faces of Sgt. Corbett, Sgt. Radus, Sgt. Garah and Sgt. Petropulos superimposed on the bodies. All of these police supervisors played a dubious role in the termination of Corporal Paul Irish.”

and the testimony under oath of the FPD trainer and Sgt Craig, they will probably end up with multimillion dollar settlements from the Fullerton taxpayer. How do you uphold their firing when two of the FPD’s so-called finest testified under oath that no FPD Policies or Procedures were broken that night.

This should be a case study presented in every police academy on what every officer should never do concerning the brutal death of Kelly Thomas. It should also be training as how to not as law enforcement employees try to justify those dastardly police actions after the fact in court by an official training officer.

And to all the City Council weasels siting on the dais last night, not one of you had the decency to state that what was done to Kelly Thomas was a low point in the entire history of the FPD and that you feel for the loss suffered by Dana and Tina and will do everything possible to make sure it can never ever happen again in the City of Fullerton. Instead some legal mumbo jumbo by the Mayor and total silence from the other four council members.

Heartless and cold blooded Jennifer Fitzgerald once again ignored the pleas for justice by the decedents family

Downtown bar owner sycophant Greg Seborn pictured on the right ignored the impassioned pleas for justice by the bereaved family members even after the city attorney cleared them to speak on the incident.

Jesus Silva was given the green light to give his condolences to the family members present and couldn’t give the simple we are sorry for what happened to Kelly Thomas.

Mayor Doug Chaffee failed to show any humanity towards the community or the family of Kelly Thomas last night when all he could muster was some legal jargon

Downtown bar owner sycophant State Senate candidate Bruce Whitaker chooses to do the wrong thing once again by remaining silent ignoring the hearyt wrenching testimony of Kelly Thomas’s family.

Barry Levinson

My wife’s sister, her husband and her two children until last fall lived in Parkland Florida. One daughter graduated from that high school a few years ago while the other had been attending that school until a few short months ago.

We now know that a friend of my sister-in-law lost a son from a bullet wound to the neck while my niece knows of a friend that was wounded in the leg and will hopefully fully recover from his wound.

Yes if only there were no guns available in the United States things might have been different. Even if you favor the elimination of the 2nd Amendment, how long do you think it would take to confiscate all guns throughout the United States? My guess is that it would take decades to remove most of the guns but there would still be millions of guns out there almost exclusively in the hands of criminals.

So whatever your feelings about guns, the reality is that removing guns from society is not something that could be accomplished easily and certainly not quickly. However, I am in favor of beefing up our laws as it relates to denying guns to people with mental health issues. We also now know that the FBI had this murderer on their radar and failed to investigate him thoroughly. We had the tools to stop him and yet our FBI failed us. We also know that many classmates and school administrators alike knew he was a ticking time bomb. After almost two decades of being told that if you see something suspicious, report it, the vast majority of citizens choose not to get involved.

So what do we do today to stop the carnage. We beef up security in our schools. We allow well trained security guards to carry guns. What does this accomplish? It accomplishes two things. First it sends a clear message that if you try to murder children at school you will be met with lethal force by guards already at the school. Second for those that still attempt to murder students, the armed security guards will limit the carnage. There will be an immediate response to the shootings. In the five, ten, twenty or even 30 minutes for the local police to respond to the shooting, many innocent lives have been lost and will continue to be lost without action.

This is not a total solution but it will save innocent lives. And that parents is much better than what we have been doing as a society and that is nothing or next to nothing.



Question to Mayor Whitaker. As he prepares to have the last of his “Talk Around the Town” meetings with the public where he asks people to bring him questions, why has he not answered specific and direct questions that were posed by his then Park and Recreation Committee appointee, namely myself, one Barry Levinson? I SMELL A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FRAUD AND PHONY HERE! I ask that someone take the above list and ask the good Mayor for answers to any and all of the above ignored issues by him!

Nothing to be proud of



  1. Bruce Whitaker voted to place Ma’Ayn Johnson, a S.C.A.G. senior planner to our Fullerton Planning Committee. S.C.A.G, the Southern California Association of Governments, has been pushing for high-rise, high-density development and the elimination of the automobile as agents of the United Nations Agenda 21 for decades.   S.C.A.G is the largest unelected, taxpayer funded, governmental agency in the country and so-called limited government, Bruce Whitaker voted for her to be on our Fullerton Planning Commission when he himself stated there were 17 well-qualified candidates.  This from a politician who claims to be for limited government.   So what does total phony politician Bruce Whitaker do but vote for someone who is part of an unelected government body.  That Fullertonians is taxation without representation.  That goes against the principles of a constitutional republic. His wife incredulously stated sometime after this vote by Whitaker that he is against S.C.A.G.  Whitaker to this day has never explained why he voted for a senior planner working for S.C.A.G.   What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1.  Bruce Whitaker refused to respond verbally or in writing to my (Barry Levinson’s) extremely well documented analysis of a 4 to 5 million-dollar finding concerning the Fullerton Golf Course.  I am a trained auditor with an MBA and work experience with Ernst and Young, a worldwide CPA firm as well as 12 years as an Internal auditor at the Corporate Headquarters of Northrop Grumman Corporation.  A total of 35 years of accounting and auditing experience ignored by the Council member who appointed me to the Fullerton Park and Recreation Commission and gave no reason. I believe the reason he removed me is simple. I was apparently getting in the way of the city doing its corrupt, phony deals.   I am referring to deals such as the DCCSP, College Town, the Summit House lease extension, and the Revised DCCSP (which would have also removed Polly’s Pies from its current long-time address and basically removed one of the few shopping centers in the eastern part of Fullerton).  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. A short time after he chose not to deal with my very large, extremely well documenting and supported finding, he asks for the establishment of an Audit Committee for our City.  Of course his motion got no support and it died immediately.  Was this by design?  Was Bruce Whitaker being a hypocrite?  Did Bruce ever discuss an audit committee with me or ask me as an auditor by trade to sit on such a Committee or give him input as to how to best set one up?  NO.  What a guy!  What a phony politician!


  1. Bruce Whitaker voted to repeal our Pedophile Residency Restriction Ordinance based on false information that the Fullerton law restricted all sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school, park or licensed day-care center provided by City Attorney James Touchstone.  In my public comments I made the point that our law specifically applies to only child sex offenders, not all sex offenders.  The only negative court decisions related to laws that restricted all sex offenders.   There was no case law against our much narrower Fullerton law, which impacted only child sex offenders.

Mr. Touchstone in presenting this agenda item to the Fullerton City Council took exception with my comments.  He stated as follows:

“With respect, I must disagree with Mr. Levinson and his comments.  Specifically, I am looking at the language before you right now of the municipal; code and it states that any sex offender is prohibited from residing within 2,000 feet of any school, park or day care center.”  What Touchstone who helped write the law failed to tell the city council members was the definition of sex offender provided by the ordinance at 7.150.020H of the Fullerton Municipal Code is as follows:

“Sex offender means any person required by law to register with government entity as a sex offender for an offense against or involving a child or children, including, but not limited to, the California Sex Offender Registration Act, Penal Code Section 290, et seq.”

Mayor Bruce Whitaker ignored my comments completely and the Fullerton City Council never acknowledged the correction that I brought forth.  But more importantly the city council voted at the second hearing for the ordinance to make it law with a unanimous vote again after I proved the City Attorney’s presentation was fatally flawed.  Bruce Whitaker and the rest of the city council should be ashamed of themselves to allow a complete and proven falsehood to be used as an excuse to repeal a very important law for the protection of all our children from pedophiles.   What kind of a guy allows false information from our City Attorney to be used to support the repeal of a law helping to protect children?  The answer is Mayor Bruce Whitaker and the rest of the city council members.  What a guy!   What a phony and unethical politician!



  1. Bruce Whitaker in a November 2014 council meeting stated that there was absolutely no evidence to support the charges brought against me by former Police Chief Dan Hughes.   At that meeting Dan Hughes admitted that he could hate that guy (referring to me) and that he took total control of the investigation himself.   When was the last time that any police chief took total control of an investigation including contacting people to interview them and then write the police report to the OC District Attorney recommending that they prosecute me?   The answer is probably never or at least never in an honest police department.  All this time the city, i.e. the police department would not make public the video camera tape where this so-called incident took place.   A few weeks after the OCDA refused to charge me with a crime for lack of evidence, the city video was made public and it showed that no crime, no incident took place.   Yet after a few others and I asked Bruce Whitaker and the rest of the council to open up an independent investigation on this matter, Whitaker and the rest of the council totally ignored our requests.   What kind of a man acknowledges that the police pursuit of me certainly seemed to be all political payback based on nothing and yet drops the matter totally?  That kind of a weak, cowardly man is none other than current Mayor Bruce Whitaker.   The fact that he still sits on the Fullerton City council dais is shameful enough but to now want a huge promotion after the scandalous way he has handled himself is something only an extremely arrogant, self-center phony politician could do with a straight face.  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. Bruce Whitaker voted for the absolute worst redistricting map, which I call the high-density, high-rise developers and downtown nightclub owners’ map.   It is the only map presented to the council that basically disenfranchises the good people who live in and around the downtown area of Fullerton.  Rather than being in primarily one district, Popoff’s map divides our downtown residents into five small pieces attached to other neighborhoods throughout Fullerton. This is taxation without adequate representation.  Jeremy Popoff, the owner of the Downtown Fullerton Slidebar and a $1,500 contributor to Bruce Whitaker’s past campaigns, wrote this map.  Is this a coincidence or not?  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. Bruce Whitaker voted to make Jennifer Fitzgerald our Mayor almost guaranteeing her to be reelected with the help of the title Mayor on the ballot.  I bring this up because so very often in speaking with me he stated how much he disagreed with so many of Council member Fitzgerald’s votes.   What a guy!   What a phony politician!



  1. The Agenda item to extend an existing Summit House Restaurant lease deal, which sits on Fullerton City Park land was shameful.  The Summit House, not the city already controlled options with the exact same terms including lease revenue to the city to the year 2041.   In other words the Summit House was in the drivers seat until the year 2041 or 26 years from the date of this agenda item.  But the Summit House wanted more and our totally inept and/or corrupt city council and city manager wanted to give them two additional 10-year lease extensions with the exact same terms all the way to October 2061.


This meant that the city council intentionally bypassed the Park and Recreation Committee for this important agenda issue.  I was the only speaker at public comments to point out how the city manager and the city council wrongly bypassed the Park and Recreation Committee.   Based on my bringing this failure by the city to the attention of all that night, it resulted in it supposedly going back to our committee for its recommendation before it went to council.  Guess what, a little over a month later I learned that the agenda item was withdrawn by the Summit House Restaurant owner.


Question:  Would any reasonable businessman leasing out property accept extending a lease with the same current terms for the next 46 years?  Why didn’t Bruce Whitaker inform me as his appointee to the Park and Recreation Committee, that this agenda item had wrongly bypassed the Park and Recreation Committee by the city?


Question:  Was Bruce Whitaker part of this plan to bypass the P and R Committee?  If not, why did he not contact me as his appointed to that committee when he received his council member agenda package several days in advance.   The agenda package clearly stated that the lease extension was recommended by the Park and Recreation Department and not the Park and Recreation Committee, which is the normal procedure.  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. Late last year, Bruce Whitaker complained about having to vote on a grant application due to a fast approaching deadline that had not yet been actually filled out by the city.  I spoke at the very next city council meeting and informed Whitaker and the rest of the council that all they had to do to solve this problem permanently was to make it mandatory that staff present agenda items not at the last minute but rather at least 2 meetings prior to any deadline.  In this way any information absent could be provided by the next meeting assuring that the council and the public had all the information necessary to make a fully informed decision.  You would think that every council member especially Bruce Whitaker would be thrilled to finally have a permanent solution to an ongoing problem.   But neither Council member Whitaker nor any other council members ever referred to my very easy and quick solution.  I have to surmise that Bruce Whitaker’s objection to a grant application without it being filled out was just political gamesmanship to win some points with his constituents.   For if he was serious about fixing the ongoing problem he would have pounced on my easy solution immediately.  No he ignored my suggestion completely.  How sad it is when our politicians are exposed for what they all too often are, which are totally phony self-centered individuals.  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. Just last month as Mayor he lead a unanimous vote to appoint David Hendricks our next Fullerton Police Chief.   Forty percent of the council was absent that night but Whitaker led the charge to appoint him nevertheless.   This shows the arrogance of Whitaker and the council to not wait until all were present to hear all the comments by the public about Hendricks prior to making their final decision.   That vote with only 60% of the council present should have never taken place.  Yet Whitaker allowed it to happen on his watch as Mayor.  I guess we can conclude that this was just another of one of his mental lapses concerning his fiduciary responsibility to his constituents.  What a guy!  What a phony politician!



  1. Whitaker takes no responsibility for all of his political failures.  When confronted with the facts that except for legalizing fireworks he has accomplished nothing in his 6 plus years of service, his lame answer is always the same.  His answer to these legitimate critiques is that he is only 1 person out of 5 on the dais.   What he fails to tell us that Bruce Whitaker has been part of the majority as a Republican the entire time he has represented Fullerton.  In fact, he has had either a 4 to 1 majority or a 3 to 2 majority the entire time of his service.   Yet now he wants to represent us in the State Senate where he will be one voice out of dozens and his party will be a small minority not the majority he has had for all his time on the Fullerton City Council dais.



  1. To those who believed and trusted Bruce Whitaker to represent us honestly based on his many years of his pontificating fiscally conservative values and limited government solutions, he has let us all down.  He had such a golden opportunity to make a real difference in our City and instead especially over the past 2 years he decided to place politics and his own ambition in front of the needs of the people he swore to represent.



Concluding Remarks:  Bruce Whitaker told me almost two year’s ago that he was planning to run for Shawn Nelson’s OC Supervisory seat when it became available in November 2018.   As recently as a month or two ago on a local news show, he reiterated that he intended to run for Nelson’s Supervisor’s seat.  Yet at the last minute he has changed his mind to run for the 29thCa. Senate seat, now held by Josh Newman. First he wants to represent the people in his District of Orange County on local county issues and now he wants to be in the State Senate dealing with statewide issues.  Why the sudden switch?  I would guess that after Young Kim threw her hat into the supervisor’s race and got the lion’s share of support from local Republican Ca. elected officials, he decided to abruptly change course.  Or maybe he just saw an opportunity to snag a large six-figure paycheck a year earlier.  Does he really care about Fullertonians or is he just looking for that big six-figure paycheck on the government dole for a part-time job whether it is as a member of the OC Supervisors or whether it be a State representative?


With all this factual documentation showing Bruce Whitaker’s actions that goes against his so-called constitutional, limited government philosophy, any conservative who still votes for Bruce Whitaker must have his or her head buried deep in the ground.   The only smart move by the electorate is to not ignore all the facts that I have presented in this article.  His turning his back on his most loyal supporters can’t and should not be rewarded with a large promotion.  You have let us down big time Council member Bruce Whitaker and hopefully now you will have to pay a political price for your phony political choices and  your lack of leadership.


We have now come to learn that the image is so, so different than reality.  All of the above examples prove Bruce Whitaker’s betrayal of his so-called constitutional conservative, limited government philosophy. Anyone objective enough to absorb the facts presented here now knows that the reality falls far short from the carefully cultivated image.


Let me state for the record that anyone who decides to vote for Bruce Whitaker with the “lesser of two evils” argument is only fooling themselves.   A public servant who in my opinion is deceptive, disingenuous and repeatedly fails to follow his own supposed principles does not deserve your vote.



A Few Final Questions For The Fullerton Public As Follows:


  1. How in good conscience could any parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle vote for a man, Bruce Whitaker who allowed proven false information about a Fullerton ordinance to be justification to repeal a very good law protecting Fullerton children from pedophiles?


  1. How in good conscience can any voter support Bruce Whitaker after stating during a city council meeting that there was no evidence to support the recommendation by Police Chief Dan Hughes to have the OCDA indict me with a misdemeanor crime and then totally drops the ball? There was certainly much evidence that the investigation led by former Police Chief Dan Hughes, was extremely biased based on his stating to Whitaker that he hated the guy, referring to myself and his acknowledgement that he himself led the entire investigation, i.e. witch hunt from start to finish against me. There was however, incontrovertible evidence that proved my innocence and it was totally ignored by Dan Hughes.   Why do you think Dan Hughes ignored evidence that was always controlled by the city namely the City videotape, which would have proven that there was no evidence to accuse me of any crime whatsoever?  This is a textbook case of police  abuse of power and a blatant attempt by Dan Hughes to make me a political prisoner.  At the same time this evidence, the videotape, was hidden from the public for months, which 100% proved my innocence.   Even though the investigation of the handling of this case by the FPD was requested by at least three people, two others and myself at city council meetings, Whitaker remained shamefully and cowardly silent on getting to the bottom of this apparent criminal misuse of police power.   When you state there is a serious possible criminal misbehavior by the head of the Fullerton police department and Whitaker strongly inferred the same and then failed to take any action to investigate the alleged criminal abuse by the FPD, this defines the antithesis of a leader or a statesman. Again phony, corrupt and cowardly politician Bruce Whitaker never requested that any investigation be conducted to get to the bottom of this apparent total disregard for the law by our own police chief.


  1. How in good conscience could any Fullerton voter cast his or her precious vote for a man who makes a mockery of the very things he has told us he stands for time and time again over his long and not very distinguished political career?


In 2012, Fullertonians by almost a 2 to 1 majority informed Bankhead, McKinley and Jones that we have had enough of them.  Let us send a loud and very clear message that now we have no confidence in Bruce Whitaker in any position of political power.


I report,  you decide.

Our streets are the joke of Southern California, we are drowning in millions of dollars in red ink caused by overly generous salary and pension increases, our traffic congestion is quickly reaching big city proportions and our elected representatives are the poster children for corruption and crony capitalism, yet the biggest problem still remains the corruption throughout the ranks of our Fullerton Police Department.  They have the power to use lethal force against the public and the ability to put innocent people in jail.  I have first hand experience with the latter statement. This can definitely impact adversely every citizen in Fullerton.  It does not matter if you are an activist or you are someone who does not know the names of any of our elected officials.   We are all at risk and will continue to be at risk until we clean house at the FPD!

So with this as the backdrop, I spoke at the Fullerton City Council during Public Comments on April 18, 2017.  They give you a “generous” 3 whole minutes to speak.  In reality, with the current group of council members, it would not matter if they gave you three hours or even three days to speak because they ignore everything out of the public’s mouths unless you choose to kiss their you now what!


I spoke about two very important subjects.  The first subject was the failure of our “reformed” Fullerton Police Department to take the statements from Joe Imbriano and myself to report the crime of obstruction of justice by recently retired Police Chief, Dan Hughes in regard to his failure to allow his officers to follow normal police procedure to arrest Joe Felz for DUI and for leaving the scene of an accident with damages.  Joe Felz was eventually charged with those two counts, months after the incident by the OCDA Office.   I admonished the entire council for its continued failure to discuss this very important issue.

With my remaining 30 seconds I dropped a bombshell in the laps of our distinguished dais.  I told them that I was informed by Banc of California employees at the Euclid and Rosecrans Avenue branch that it is closing because a developer bought the property to be part of the development of the entire Sunrise Village Shopping Center to become mixed-use high-density high-rise residential units.  The city desperately needs the short-term infusion of money that would be generated by the Park and Recreation Department Park Dwelling fees of $11,700 per residential unit.  If they build 500 units for example that would generate an additional $5,850,000 in revenue.  This would help to cover the extremely generous salary and benefit employee raises approved by the council last year.  More development approvals would be needed to continue paying for these salary and benefit increases approved under Mayor Jennifer Fitzgerald in 2016 for subsequent years.   I put the council on notice that I smelled a rat.  Namely that the city in my opinion has been dealing with developers to make this mixed use project a reality in the near future.  Why else would these landlords create vacant properties with the absence of valuable rents if they only had a hope that they could convert the shopping center to a concrete jungle of mixed use high-density housing units.  I told them it was not zoned for that use and that the people of that neighborhood would fight to make sure it never ever came to fruition.  You should have seen the faces of Bruce Whitaker and Jennifer Fitzgerald after I finished with my comments.  They did not look pleased at all.

Of course, there was no response by any council members to these comments and the Interim Police Chief also was silent after he learned that his department would not take a simple police report by two members of the community. Gee silly me, I thought it was their job to take the statement and then go and investigate; not determine that no crime was committed so therefore no police report was necessary to be taken by them in the first place.

The first order of business has to be from the OCDA Office by filing obstruction of justice charges against Dan Hughes.

Like I said at the beginning of this post, the City of Fullerton and the Fullerton Police Department are corrupt and the Fullerton Police Department needs to clean house

Council Member Jennifer Fitzgerald And Her Close Confidant And Appointee To The Parks And Recreation Committee, Gretchen Cox Acting Badly As Her Apparent Representative, Striking Out Against The Truth and The Truth tellers (That Would Include Me) With Baseless Defamations! By Barry Levinson

Question?   Why are the facts for some like Council member Fitzgerald and her confidant and appointee Gretchen Cox so difficult apparently to deal with?

Responding to my comments at the June 20, 2017 Council meeting, Council member Fitzgerald stated the following:

“Well, I want to point out to the public while we are entering into a five-year contract with Mr. Domer, he will be an at-will employee and anyone who read the staff report would have seen that.”

What Ms. Fitzgerald conveniently and I believe intentionally left out to mislead the public is that a typical at-will employee, which means an employee who can be terminated at any time without cause is not usually entitled to a severance package.  But in the case of Mr. Domer, his contract guarantees him immediately that the city would owe him a severance of not 1 week or 1 month or even 3 months additional salary but a full 6 months in additional salary if he were to be removed from his post at anytime during the life of this five-year contract. In addition the contract stipulates that on day one he will receive 2 weeks of unearned vacation time and 1 week of unearned sick time.   This is also unheard of for an at-will employee.

Once again, Ms. Fitzgerald is more interested in misleading the public than serving them.

In response to my criticism on the total lack of action concerning the Hillcrest Park Stairs, Council member Sebourn gave a tardy and very incomplete update that he had requested documents relating to the stairs on June 20, 2017.  If you were truly serious about taking action, you would have received all the information you wanted in a matter of a few days not six weeks.

How many more months are we to wait to learn that the city has no intention to sue the contractor and certainly no intention to hold any city employee accountable for signing-off on a 1.7 million dollar project with very obvious and numerous construction defects.

It is becoming clearer and clearer that the city has no intention to sue the contractor and certainly no intention to hold any city employee accountable for signing off on a 1.7 million dollar project with very obvious and numerous construction and/or design defects.  We learned that some of the problems not specifically identified and downplayed according to Parks and Recreation Director Hugo Curiel are being addressed now.  Director Curiel actually stated that is was common practice months after the job was completed and paid for by the taxpayers to have a contractor fix issues.

Fullertonians any well run city first has a final city inspection prior to making any final payments to the3 contractor.  The fact that so many defects existed after its completion tells me that whoever signed off on this project should be held to account or maybe the city never did a final inspection prior to paying the entire cost of the project.  We simply do not know because our city council has chosen to keep the taxpayers in the dark.

So what is the status of the stairs today?   Thanks to the incomplete and vague answers by the council and staff we really do not know.   More corrections are to be done but we do not know, which corrections are to be addressed.   What about the design error to put large wooden posts into the concrete caissons making replacing any of them an extremely expensive and unnecessary undertaking?   My guess is that this important and expensive issue has not been addressed and will not be addressed by our phony and incompetent council.  But what you can be sure of is that when one or more of those wooden posts needs replacing and they will, we the taxpayers will be on the hook for 100% of the unnecessary cost.

We the public is expected to accept once again our city squandering our taxpayer monies on very expensive substandard workmanship.   The city council spent $1.7 million dollars on this substandard stairway.  I guess as Mayor, we can add this as just another one out of so many of Mayor Bruce Whitaker’s failures.

The last council meeting, council added insult to injury by voting for a new police chief with 40% of the council not present.  How incredibly arrogant that all the city council members do not believe it is proper for them to listen to their constituents before deciding on a new police chief.  On top of that, Mayor Whitaker actually stated that he believed that the pertinent questions asked by the public did not need to be discussed by council prior to the vote.  How low can they go?  With this council it is not measurable.

Mayor Whitaker prior to the vote by Council to appoint David Hendricks as our next police chief called him Chief Hendricks.  Isn’t that putting the cart before the horse Bruce Whitaker?

It is also a very strong Indication that Mayor Bruce Whitaker and the rest of the City Council already knew that nothing said by the public commenters would or could alter their votes.   Yes he was their selection behind close doors but shouldn’t there be a final decision made by council after hearing from the public at the Council Meeting.   If you have decided amongst all of you that nothing anyone said at the Council Meeting would change your minds then what Is the purpose of the public comments other than a dog and pony show.

Dog and Pony show ringleader Bruce Whitaker

Question No. 1: If you did decide among yourselves that no comments at city council would sway your vote is that not a Brown Act Violation mayor Whitaker?


Question No. 2: Why wasn’t the vote for a new police chief postponed until all five council members were in attendance?


Another indication of the dog and pony show was the reading of two letters by Jennifer Fitzgerald and Greg Sebourn welcoming Mr. Hendricks as our new Police Chief prior to the final vote by the council.   We are then told that Fitzgerald’s and Sebourn’s approval of Mr. Hendricks do not count as votes due to their absence from the meeting.   I think it is a slap in the face of the community that such an important decision would be made with 40% of the council absent.   I guess both Sebourn and Fitzgerald did not care that they were not giving the public a chance to persuade them not to vote for Mr. David Hendricks.   The Fullerton City Council’s arrogance is there for all to see once again.

They all ignored the facts that Long Beach PD has a very troubled and disturbing history of major problems including millions of dollars paid out from lawsuits generated by bad behavior such as excessive force by several Long Beach Police Officers and it was stated by a public commenter that all of them that were identified for the record were still on the force.  The fact that Mr. Hendricks was in charge of internal affairs for the Long Beach Police Department and he spent his entire police career with that department only makes these facts more disturbing.   Does he believe that it makes sense for the city to approve multi-million dollar settlements for the bad acts of certain police officers and then allow them to remain in the force?   I am sorry but that is the definition of a corrupt and broken system. That milks the innocent public dry of millions of dollars that could be much better used for infrastructure or properly maintaining our parks.  This is the status quo apparently in both the Fullerton and Long Beach Police Departments.  Police officers commit bad acts, we the innocent public/taxpayers are held financially accountable but not the officers who are guilty of these acts.  I guess when are Human Resources Director stated that one of the things they liked about Mr. Hendricks was that he was a good fit with Fullerton Police Department maybe they were thinking that both departments have made the public pay out millions for their employee’s bad acts while the employees in actuality usually only get an extended paid vacation i.e. paid administrative leave.    Again we the innocent public is held to account but the officers usually get off scot-free.   Where is the fairness to the taxpayer in such a corrupt system of dealing with the financial consequences of these lawsuits?  What a totally broken and corrupt system and not a peep about this by our Mayor Whitaker or any other of our council members.  This is just another example of how our city council has once again totally failed us as our elected representatives.

The spirit of Pat Mckinley is alive and well

This shows the contempt the city of Long Beach, Fullerton, and other cities have for its citizens.   You have millions of tax dollars going to pay for wrongdoing by police who in many cases are still on the job. The taxpayers, not the police who commit these bad acts pays the victims in some cases millions of dollars and then we as taxpayers have to continue to pay for their salaries and benefits after we the taxpayer not the officers have to pay to make the lawsuits go away.  And they have the nerve to be called public servants.   Are you kidding me!  We the taxpayers are used and abused by those cities that demand that we pay for the public servants’ misconduct.

After two public speakers Sean Paden and David Curlee made important and relevant comments specifically about the millions of dollars paid out by the City of Long Beach in the past few years alone due to police misbehavior and the issue of Mr. Hendricks getting his college degree from an unaccredited college, this is what Mayor Whitaker incredulously stated immediately after they were finished.   Bruce Whitaker was quoted as saying as follows:  “I DON’T KNOW IF ANYTHING NEEDS TO BE ANSWERED FROM PRIOR TWO COMMENTERS?

Council had not discussed these extremely important issues at all.  Yet Mayor Whitaker states that he doesn’t believe either of these issues needs to be addressed by the city council members or the city attorney or the city manager or by any other city employee.   How about Mayor Whitaker you require the person you are about to give the highest paid Fullerton employee total compensation package by tens of thousands of dollars to answer both of these questions sir?   You Mayor Whitaker and the rest of the council are a complete disgrace to our community.    Not a whimper by Whitaker or any of them about giving out a five-year contract.   Back in 2012, Whitaker spoke out against giving Dan Hughes a five-year contract.   Question:   Was your initial objection to giving Dan Hughes a five-year contract genuine or political grandstanding?    I ask this relevant question since this time phony Whitaker was totally silent.   I guess now that he wants to run for higher office he is perfectly fine with five-year contracts and totally ignoring all the problems within the Long Beach Police Department.  WHAT A GUY AND FURTHERMORE, WHAT A POOR EXCUSE FOR OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE!

It appears that two of most ardent of Bruce Whitaker’s supporters, Sean Paden and David Curlee have become a political liability to Mayor Whitaker at this late date.   Maybe now both Sean and David finally may realize that Whitaker used them.  Even if they now understand they were used by Whitaker, the timing is very unfortunate as both of them helped Whitaker to get reelected to a third term on the city council.

Appointed Mayor Bruce Whitaker deserves to be recalled from the Fullerton City Council and to never be placed in a position of authority either elected or appointed ever again.  But instead of doing the right thing, he will be busy running for Newman’s State Senate seat.   What a guy!



Fullerton’s puppets and their masters Tony Bushala, Jennifer Fitzgerald, Bruce Whitaker, and Greg Sebourn: just another reason why trusting or believing them is a fools errand.

When your word means almost nothing, it can be repurchased for really cheap. Jennifer Fitzgerald’s sure has and for a measly $850 a month. After publicly proclaiming that she would not take her stipend as a council member back in 2012, with no public announcement she has officially began drawing a paycheck from the city again since March 11, 2017.  

Why this turn of events? Well it sure looks like Pringle might be cutting her loose from her cush gig as VP of Pringle and Associates. So potentially there goes that income stream.  Curt Pringle’s plan to have an insider on our council to ram through the DCCSP was thwarted by Barry Levinson and others. Why no public statement with all the pomp and circumstance announcing she is back on the dole like when she declined her stipend as a council member is anyone’s guess but for this Biola grad that has all the people up on the hill and the EV Free crowd hoodwinked, there is meaning in her actions. I guess her free public service is over but then again we always knew it was never free in the first place. Fitzgerald has cost this city dearly with her horrendous voting record on massive raises and expenditures as our roads and infrastructure remains in ruin.

Fitzgerald dropping her head in shame as Barry Levinson exposes the council ‘s unanimous vote that amounted to protecting pedophiles with the repeal of the Fullerton law that Barry helped write.

Well it looks like she won’t be pulling down the $165,000 salary as a county supervisor either with the dagger coming from Ed Royce endorsing the worthless forced vaccinator and forced irradiator Young Kim for supervisor. Looks like Fitzpringle won’t be getting her county benefits, the county pension and it looks like the gig with Pringle is soon to be off the table as well.  Not that long ago, she was actually looking at the possibility of making $350,000 to $400,000 a year as both a county supervisor and a VP at Pringle and Associates. Well that was all contingent upon her delivering the goods as a council member involving massive development projects that would have destroyed Fullerton forever.

So no County Supervisor and possibly no more VP at Pringle’s office. Why has all this befallen our council member? Is it because she was unable to put the screws to the residents and get the tens of thousands of high rise apartment units built for her bosses and her developer friends? Is it because she has become a public relations nightmare for Curt Pringle? Is it because she has drawn too much attention with her connections to the biggest influence peddler in Orange County and so much so that the light of day was finally shone on these dastardly plans to turn the area in and around downtown Fullerton into downtown LA? Perhaps.

Fitzpringle up on the dais drinking aspartame, brominated vegetable oil, ester of wood rosen.,…… and all from a BPA lined can that lets some of that aluminum get into the solution

You will remember back in 2012, if you were paying attention, that the free pass given by Tony Bushala and with the assistance and support of Tony Bushala’s close friend Shawn Nelson, she was elected to the Fullerton City Council. Within a few months she was appointed to the Vice President position at Curt Pringle and Associates. Tony Bushala, whose family owns close to 40 million dollars in properties in Fullerton had just finished purchasing the election in 2012 by spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to install his boys Kiger, Whitaker, and Sebourn on the city council.

Tony’s tools he bankrolled to get elected in 2012 along with Fitzgerald who was given a pass.

Adding Fitzgerald gave the developers 4 votes and the entire council stacked the planning commission with stool pigeon plants that passed the DCCSP.   

Gambino, Silber, Johnson, Shanfield, Han and Alvarez all voted to pass the DCCSP

Bushala’s handpicked bag man, Bruce Whitaker,

made sure his plant on the planning commission purposely missed the vote.

The insubordination of establishment operative Kevin Pendergraft

With all of Tony Bushala’s plants on the council such as Travis Kiger, Bruce Whitaker, and Greg Sebourn, Fullerton would have been poised for massive development as people were distracted by the attention being diverted to the police department’s misdeeds. It was the perfect cover. Bushala ran his blog for another year NEVER ONCE MENTIONING THE DCCSP. He then shut his blog down in early 2013 and opened back up after the 2016 election and to this day has NEVER MENTIONED THE DCCSP.

Behind the scenes, the DCCSP was passed by the planning commission and being gift wrapped and cooked to order by Bushala’s plants working with City staff and developers to rezone a plethora of commercial properties and turn them into ten story high rise housing buildings on hundreds of acres of arterial street frontage and in and around downtown Fullerton. This would have turned Fullerton into a gestapo run gridlocked version of Manhattan blended with the Bronx.



Well fortunately, it looks like the DCCSP is totally dead now because Bushala is turning on Fitgzerald after 5 long years of sitting and waiting for his development payday that never came. The DCCSP would have made his SOCO walk development earnings look like a box car bet on a 5 dollar crap table.  Now after 5 long years after he remained totally silent on everything this woman did to pull Fullerton further down the fiscal drain and try to turn it into a high rise hell hole, Tony has turned his tools and phonies against her. Mind you he never exposed her for what she was before she was elected in 2012, never exposed her during her nearly disastrous 4 year tenure on the council from 2012 to 2016 and then still remained silent protecting her during the entire 2016 election cycle so she could get re elected.

Remember when Fitzgerald vowed publicly not to accept her council member stipend because she stated that there is nothing that says public servants should receive renumeration? Well, as of March 11, 2017, she began drawing her $850 a month for her work on the council. So now she is going to cost the taxpayers of Fullerton around $40,000 over the next four years.

Well at least we saved Fullerton from the developers and we saved $40,000 from 2012 to 2016 but it is too bad she was allowed to give away tens of millions of dollars in police, fire and city employee raises, benefit increases as well the approvals of pork projects while hundreds of miles of streets are in ruin.

Well we know her word means nothing and we also know that Fullerton is safe from the massive development agenda for now because of the light of day people like Barry Levinson shed on the dirty deeds of Fullerton’s political creeps. More to come as we wait for Fitzpringle to finally become Fitzgerald again.

FFFF Once Again Fails The Good People Of Fullerton By Not Allowing Me To Post All My Comments On Their Website. Why Are They So Afraid of My Words? By Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson

The FFFF has no credibility for they once again prove below that they would not post my second and third responses under their article Fitzgerald Casts Toxic Vote for Pringle Client July 3, 2017 The Worm.  They are clearly censoring factual commentary that does not fit their agenda.


I first responded to “just a guy” and they allowed that comment to be posted (1).  Then I responded to “Everyone Except (Except S/B Except) Me…”  (2).  Joe Sipowicz unfortunately removed my comment; see below (3).  I strongly believe that Joe Sipowicz is none other than Tony Bushala.

Wow the last time I shook hands with Shawn Nelson was the recall election of 2012. EVERYONE EXEPT ME… is only 4 plus years off. In the November 2012 election he supported Jennifer Fitzgerald. That is when I first learned that Shawn Nelson was a total phony politician. You see one day Nelson is supporting me and the next month he will not return my emails or phone calls.  What a guy?  What a total and complete phony? The thought of him getting a judgeship is frightening. 
You state that FFFF broke with Shawn Nelson in 2013. Don’t you really mean that the FFFF went away in Feb. 2013 and broke from the entire Fullerton community and did not come back until after the 2016 elections? Three out of five seats on the line and this blog comes back right after the election. How incredibly phony is that? You had a golden opportunity to stop Fitzgerald from getting reelected and you in my opinion purposely did nothing to stop her. ”

You had a golden opportunity to stop Fitzgerald from getting reelected and all Tony Bushala did was help Josh Newman by putting up anti-Kang signs throughout Fullerton. What a guy!


As you can see the FFFF website has agendas that have nothing to do with the betterment and wellbeing of the people of Fullerton.   The truth in my humble opinion is that Tony Bushala and the FFFF website have been an intentional distraction to many Fullertonians. Again in my opinion, he is not Fullerton’s friend and he will never be Fullerton’s friend.

For those who figured out Tony Bushala’s motives earlier, I applaud you.   For those who are finally realizing that Tony Bushala is not what he wants you to think that he is, welcome to the rarified air of the truth.   Breathe deeply my fellow Fullertonians because so many for so long have been figuratively breathing the poisoned air in Fullerton.   Please know that those who were fooled have nothing to be ashamed of for a great deal of time, effort and money has been expended for the express purpose to fool us all.

It took many years to accomplish but I am here to tell Tony Bushala and the FFFF website that Fullertonians are now fully aware of all your Machiavellian games.    As I have said for a long time, to understand Fullerton politics and our Fullerton City Government all you have to do is…Follow The Money!

A Brief Summary Of How The Power Brokers In Fullerton Intentionally Mistreat Both The Truth Tellers And All the Good People Of Fullerton California.  By Barry Levinson

Barry Levinson

I have been posting regularly about the many faults of our Fullerton City Government for years.   I have done this not for personal profit, not for power and certainly not for any glory as it sets me up and my family as a big target for all those power players that have something to loose from my truth telling.

After all this time I have yet to see or read one defender of our Fullerton City Government discredit even one of my articles, videos, or public comments that now totals in the hundreds.

The question then remains if they can’t provide any cogent argument against my various articles, videos or public comments, then how do they choose to respond to me.

This is what they do instead.   First they try to make me a political prisoner with totally baseless charges against me as corroborated by not only the city’s own video camera but the very words at city council of the alleged victim that she could not remember if I laid a finger on her at any time.


Please let me review the facts.   First the city own video proves I am totally innocent as it clearly demonstrates no such assault and battery took place.   Second, the alleged victim at city council meeting states she has no recollection that I ever laid a finger on her at any time.    I can understand now why our former Police Chief Dan Hughes took it upon himself to interview the so-called witnesses and take charge of the police report, which recommended that the Orange County District Attorney prosecute me.    In my humble opinion the evidence seems to show rather clearly that this was nothing more than a criminal conspiracy lead by Dan Hughes to make me a political prisoner.

Yet, Disney Corporation seemed fit last November after I assume was an exhaustive search and background check of all its final candidates to hire Dan Hughes to a very high level security post.

I wonder when or if Disney Corporation will realize that hiring Dan Hughes makes the Disney Corporation look extremely bad to many of the good folks of Fullerton.  Question for the Disney Corporation.  How many alleged scandals does Dan Hughes have to be involved in before Disney cuts its ties with him?


Next Bruce Whitaker fired me with no cause or reason given to me from a position I had held for 5 and one half years and in my second term as Park and Recreation Committee member.

Finally, throughout all of this time, they routinely call me just about every four letter fowl name their sick and evil minds can think of and make up defaming stories about me and of course call me crazy, a lunatic and unstable for good measure.


Well they have been doing this now for many years and it has not yet worked for them.   I would say that their disgusting, dishonest tactics against me has been an utter failure.  I say this with the knowledge that the only thing it has proved is their total lack of decency and honesty.

P.S.  But it is “heartwarming” to note that our former Mayor, Jennifer Fitzgerald did defend so-called comedian Andy Dick for his outrageous and disgusting comment at a Fullerton Cares benefit for autism.  He called all people with autism retards and then signaled the only reason he came to Fullerton was he needed a paycheck.  What a guy and what only a depraved council member such as Jennifer Fitzgerald could defend in my opinion.



I report, you decide!
