Fullerton is a city located in northern Orange County, California. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 135,161. Now 135,160 due to the fact that Fullerton police officers brutally attacked and killed a unarmed homeless man by the name of Kelly Thomas(see recent history).
It was founded in 1887 by George and Edward Amerige and named for George H. Fullerton, who secured the land on behalf of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. Historically it was a center of agriculture, notably groves of Valencia oranges and other citrus crops; petroleum extraction; transportation; and manufacturing. It is home to several educational institutions, notably the California State University, Fullerton.
On July 5th of the year 2011 a homeless man by the name of Kelly Thomas was savagely beaten and tasered by Fullerton police officers until he fell into a comatose state and died 5 days later. The city of Fullerton soon attempted to bribe the father of the victim Kelly thomas with 900,000 of the taxpayers money. Kelly Thomas's father morally and rightfully rejected this offer. Soon the Hacker group anonymous made the following demands to The City Of Fullerton 1) the immediate prosecution of Officers Jay Cicinelli, Kenton Hampton, Manny Ramos, Joe Wolfe, James Blatney, and anyone else involved in the gruesome beating, torture, and murder of Kelly Thomas.
