The group of people who gathered in front of the Fullerton Police Department for today's protest differed from last week's crew.
“Just how prevalent is police brutality? What can we do about it?”
“I'm encouraging them to come out and talk about bad encounters with police,” Thomas said. “People need to tell their stories and put an end to all this.”
There was still almost no police presence at the protest, for example, although one officer did come outside for a while, talk to protesters and answer questions.
In fact, blogger Tony Bushala, who's following the case closely, even drew up a quick sign saying the officer should be the next police chief.
“Oh, stop that,” the officer said.
“No, I'm serious, you're out here talking to people. You seem to care,” Bushala said.
