Unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief.


BELOW IS THE TRANSCRIPT OF MY REMARKS BEFORE THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL (MAYOR BRUCE WHITAKER, COUNCIL MEMBERS GREG SEBOURN, JENNIFER FITZGERALD, JESUS SILVA AND MAYOR PRO TEM DOUG CHAFFEE) ON MAY 15, 2017 AS WELL AS SOME ADDITIONAL THOUGHTS

BY BARRY LEVINSON

 

Back In February I witnessed unconscionable behavior by our Fullerton City Council, Fullerton City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief. The behavior was to provide False And Very Misleading Information about The Fullerton Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Law To Justify Its Repeal! This False Narrative Lead By City Attorney James Touchstone Demonstrated A Lack Of Character By Him And All Who Played Along With This Charade.

Fullerton City attorney James Touchstone

I Am Here To Proclaim Very Loudly That Character Does Count And Not One Individual On The Dais That Evening Demonstrated Any Character!  Months ago they knew the facts but ignored them and went ahead anyway. They were warned. See this video below.

Whether you happen to agree with their votes or not, it is never good for the public to have elected and appointed officials who mislead, misinform and sometimes out and out lie to us. Diane Hickey, Joe Imbriano and myself clearly documented on the record here in this chamber that the erroneous information City Attorney James Touchstone spelled out as part of an official presentation to council recommending the repeal of Ordinance 3149 was indeed false.  He stated erroneously that the ordinance impacts all sex offenders when the ordinance clearly defines a sex offender as only a child sex offender for purposes of this law.

Here we are months later and still the Fullerton City Council continues to protect the pedophiles and refuses to acknowledge that the official presentation by our city attorney months back on this issue was based on falsehood. What does that tell you about the integrity, honesty and decency of our city council, police chief and our city attorney?

Council person Doug Chaffee”s actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Jesus Silva’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

 

Council person Bruce Whitaker’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Police Chief Heinig on the right’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children

Council person Greg Sebourn’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. What a guy who thinks it ok to cancel an agenda item when the presenter is at the podium.

Vice President of Curt Pringle and associates Jennifer Fitzgerald.’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. She has had to recuse herself because one of her clients got a big payday from the Fullerton City Council.

 

Fullerton City Attorney Dick Jones’s  actions certainly indicate a desire to help protect pedophiles over the safety of our children. Check him out dozing while making big bucks. Could anybody look more disinterested that he?

After we proved that Mr. Touchstone provided false information to the council in support of his recommendation to repeal Ordinance 3149, every city council member ignored that fact and voted to repeal the ordinance, anyway. They in fact by not acknowledging James Touchstone’s egregious error, chose to be part of the deception. Touchstone’s failure to acknowledge his error after we corrected him strongly suggests that it was not an error at all but an intentional ploy/conspiracy to mislead the public on this very important issue. What has City Attorney Dick Jones done in regard to this misinformation given by his partner in his law firm?  As far as I know absolutely nothing! This whole scenario is shameless behavior by our City of Fullerton Government and can’t be tolerated going forward.

I can’t for certain claim that each and every one of those individuals will be held to account by the Fullerton public.  But what I can say is that God will in fact judge them for their ethical and moral failings as our elected and appointed Fullerton officials.

The only thing I can add to my prepared remarks that i presented at the public comment section of the Fullerton City Council meeting on May 15, 2017 is the following:

We the good people of Fullerton must stand up to demand form our city council and city government, integrity, honesty and representation that only considers the overall well-being of the citizens of Fullerton.

This must include coming regularly to city council meetings and making your voices heard by those who are supposed to represent us the people.

    For the entire council led by Mayor Bruce Whitaker to repeal a law whose sole purpose is to make it less likely that pedophiles will have access to our kids where they regularly gather is so grotesque on its face. But to do this based on known false information demonstrates a complete lack of decency, integrity and honesty by the entire City Council, the City Attorney and the Fullerton Police Chief and a callous disregard for the safety of all our children in Fullerton. As elected/appointed officials you can not sink any lower than this. What kind of human beings would choose this course of action against the children of our community? This by itself is an offense that more than merits a recall against all five of them.

    When our Fullerton City Attorney uses false information to justify a recommended repeal of an ordinance, Ord. No. 3149, the Child Sex Offender Residency Restriction Act (my description of the ordinance), it is incumbent upon the City Attorney and the City Council starting with Mayor Bruce Whitaker to set the record straight. This becomes even more crucial since the council approved the City Attorney’s recommendation and voted 5 to 0 to repeal the ordinance again based on false information. Question: Doesn’t the City Attorney have an obligation to not lie about a ordinance in order to help get it repealed? I guess both James Touchstone and Dick Jones do not feel obligated to be truthful while explaining a city law they are the chief legal representative for that city of Fullerton. I say this for they surely would have corrected themselves when we proved the City Attorney’s statement about Ord 3149 to be blatantly false? What does it take in Fullerton to hold our public officials accountable for their actions?

    For any City Council to knowingly allow false testimony via a official city presentation, (in this case by the Fullerton City Attorney, James Touchstone for his boss Dick Jones) should be a crime punishable with real jail time for both the presenters and for the city council members if it can be proved they knew the presentation contained significant falsehoods. This is the case with the above City Attorney presentation to the Fullerton City Council.

    How could any citizen even consider voting for any of these very deceitful politicians again, namely Bruce Whitaker, Greg Sebourn, Jennifer Fitzgerald (VP of Curt Pringle and Associates), Doug Chaffee and Jesus Silva (husband to State Assembly member Sharon Quirk-Silva)?

    What do you call individuals who will accept known falsehoods from the Fullerton City Attorney in order to justify their vote to protect pedophiles over the safety concerns of our children?

    THE ANSWER: THE FULLERTON CITY COUNCIL
    BRUCE WHITAKER
    JENNIFER FITZGERALD
    GREG SEBOURN
    DOUG CHAFFEE
    JESUS SILVA

    Citizens against these dastardly individuals do not have to impeach their integrity for they do a bang up job all by themselves. They all continue to remain silent rather than correct the record. By so doing they enforce and support that they do not have the integrity, honesty and courage to properly represent the good people of Fullerton. Therefore at this point the only honorable action by our council members would be for each and every one of them; Whitaker, Fitzgerald, Sebourn, Chaffee and Silva to resign from the Fullerton City Council.

    Why is it that the Friends for Fullerton’s Future blog has been totally silent on this issue?

    What does it say about their motives and integrity?

      As if these two cranks deserve an audience outside of this site.

      Tony ruined Fullerton. Ask me how I dare you.

        Nah.

        Tony who?

      • #10 by Anonymous on May 23, 2017 - 10:54 am

        Tony did great things for us. The games he played riding the broken back of Kelly Thomas worked out just fine for us. We couldn’t be happier with the retroactive raises and bennies he got for us with the council. Bet you didn’t know that Tony got plugs did you? He’s hoping we won’t recognize him when we he is out toking and riding his bike.
