Fullerton College Student Says Cops Wrongfully Arrested Him And Beat Him Up in 2008
At a council meeting in Fullerton last week, a man said he thought the "flood gates" of complaints against the police department had only just started.
alleges that officerPerry Thayer
slammed his face against a curb and then stepped on his head with his boot.
"He purposely put my face into a gutter full of disgusting dirty gutter water to the point where I was almost choking on it, and pushed down on my head to the point where my head almost caved it and I was screaming for my life."
Officers then allegedly put him in the back of a squad car without his seatbelt on and repeatedly slammed on the brakes, so his head hit the cage. Janku filed a complaint, the post says, but was stonewalled until recently when he was told to get an attorney.
