Like the rest of the world, we have heard the screams of Kelly Thomas. We heard him scream stop, sorry, and finally dad. Since then we have been rallying troops to help this great cause. Whether it be spreading messages on IRC or tweeting, we have had a great reception from our Anonymous brothers and sisters. This is not just a brutal attack against another human being, but an attack against human rights.

For too long the public has “accepted” the spin from the police. Already they have begun labeling him by publishing documents about his mental illness to sway support towards the police. At the same time, the videos from the cruisers and the surveillance camera, which could instantly alibi their officers is still yet to be released. What is it that they are trying to hide ? Why is it that former Fullerton Police Chiefs sit on the city council ?
Who is it conducting the investigation ? The DA who uses testimonies from the same officers as truth to put criminals in jail. Also, what about the 2008 charges brought against Officer Albert Rincon for sexually abusing two women in the back of his squad car. Ironically enough, the city of Fullerton offered them $7,500 in a settlement. They also offered $900,000 to the father of Kelly Thomas, who rightfully and morally rejected the offer.
This is very unsettling to say the least. It is clear that while the police try to stonewall the public, the city is willing to use tax payer funds as hush, and in this case, blood money. The government of Fullerton, like the city of Sodam and Gomorrah clearly has a broken moral compass, and as such will be smitten from the interwebz as our fleet draws near.
We will begin to treat the web assets of the police, city government - and any other targets we deem in support or a cause of this incident with as much mercy as was shown to Kelly Thomas. He may have been silenced, but his screams will live on forever, and we will join him as Operation Fullerton.
Anonymous and the world hereby make the following demands:
1) We demand the 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.
2) We demand the immediate resignation of the Chief of Police in Fullerton, California.
3) We demand that the City of Fullerton immediately pay a lump sum settlement of no less than 5 million dollars to the legal survivors of Kelly Thomas.
Until these demands are met, you can expect two things. First your city will be the target of rolling street protests and occupations of public space.
And you can expect Anonymous, we now officially launch “Operation Fullerton”. We will begin dismantling the City of Fullerton’s interwebz starting tomorrow at high Noon Pacific Time. We will remove from the world wide web the site belonging to the Fullerton Police Department located at http://www.ci.fullerton.ca.us/depts/police - and in addition we will Black Fax and E-Mail Bomb every inbox at the Fullerton City Police Department. This cyber action by Anonymous will be accompanied by a protest on the ground tomorrow.
This is only the beginning, we will slowly but surely begin attacking the web assets of the City of Fullerton - until we have dismantled your web and taken from you all your communications channels. And if our demands are still not met, we will widen the circle to include many other web sites and organizations in Fullerton.
