    I dont think this is particularly endemic to Fullerton. Similar stuff happens in all urban areas where the mentally ill homeless tend to congregate. When they are unable to respond appropriately to police demands the cops just start wailing on them. Many wind up in jail where they are further victimized by the hard core criminal population. It seems that many cops fall easily into a sort of mob mentality... when they see a fellow officer beating on someone they want to jump right in and ask questions later.
