THE PREVIOUS LEAKED CONFIDENTIAL REPORT (ENTITLED THE “INTERNAL AFFAIRS INVESTIGATIVE REPORT INTO THE IN-CUSTODY DEATH OF KELLY THOMAS by the OIR GROUP HEADED BY MICHAEL GENNACO) BEFORE THE CITY OF FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL ON SEPTEMBER 15, 2015 WITH SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS by Barry Levinson
The conclusions of this report issued in April 2012 to Police Chief Hughes occurred approximately 18 months before the Ramos and Cincinelli trial seems to contradict the sworn testimony of both Fullerton Police Department Training Officer, Corporal Rubio and Fullerton Police Department Sergeant Kevin Craig. They both testified that they saw no major violations of the Fullerton Police Department Policy Manual during the brutal beating death of Kelly Thomas and the subsequent police response to his injuries.
Did FPD Police Chief Dan Hughes provide this crucial piece of evidence to the OC DA and if not did this directly lead to a not-guilty verdict?
Why has not Police Chief Dan Hughes taken any action to open up a police investigation concerning the alleged perjury by two of his officers? Why did he not follow the same course of action for this alleged felony perjury case as his department did with regard to Barry Levinson’s baseless misdemeanor case that was later dropped by the OC DA for lack of evidence?
Chief Hughes knew that the sealed Gennnaco report conclusions conflicted with his officers’ testimony. Did he provide it to the Orange County D. A. as requested as part of the packet of information subpoenaed by the Prosecution, or did he not?
This explosive information provided by the City of Fullerton’s own expert, needs to be thoroughly reviewed in light of the contradicting sworn testimony in a criminal murder trial by Rubio and Craig
PS: Please note that it was Council member Jan Flory,
who attempted in vain to get our City Attorney to rule that this information that has been out in the public purview for several months could be blocked from being disseminated by a private citizen, Barry Levinson. Ms. Flory valiantly tried to keep the truth from the public that night. In my opinion this showed where Ms. Flory’s true allegiance lies and it was not with the public.
