Banking Exec Brutalized by LAPD was on Medical Cannabis not Bath SaltsAugust 30th, 2012

Yesterday I shared a story about Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank who was brutally beaten by the LAPD in one of the most bizarre encounters I’ve seen reported. Now Mulligan has filed a $50-million claim against the LAPD and lawyered up as a build up to a lawsuit. His attorney, J. Michael Flanagan says that the police filed a false police report to cover up their brutality, and as details trickle out the cops’ version of the events just gets weirder and more contradictory. But I think I can shed some light on this case that you won’t see reported anywhere else.
According to Mulligan, police confused him for another suspect and searched him. They found $2,500 in his car, took him to a nearby hotel against his will and told him to stay there with the cash until they got back. Mulligan became worried they’d involved him in some kind of sting operation and tried to leave when they beat him senseless.
The police report tells a different story. They claim they received at least two calls about a man fitting his description breaking into cars at a Jack in the Box. He allegedly told them he hadn’t slept for days and he was high on marijuana and “White Lightning” or bath salts. So, they dropped Mulligan off at the motel to sleep. Then later they found him running around in the street, and when they ordered him to stop he charged at them. Early reports said he took a “fighting stance,” one report called it a “karate stance” but later Lt. Andy Neiman said Mulligan was, “baring his teeth and presenting his hands like claws.”
The cops’ version of the story makes absolutely no sense. First off, Flanagan checked and there were no 911 calls about somebody breaking into cars, only one call about somebody trying to flag down traffic near the restaurant. Second, the police conducted a field sobriety test and a screen for controlled substances and Mulligan passed. The first police report described Mulligan as, “calm, lucid, and cooperative.” Their searches of his person and his vehicle uncovered no drugs, and the LAPD never filed any drug related charges against him. Third, when have you ever heard of cops taking an intoxicated person to a hotel to sleep? They typically take them into custody and let them sleep it off in a cage, and if they were feeling unusually charitable why wouldn’t they take him to his house, which was only 10 miles away.
So what the hell is going on here? I think I figured it out. And If you’ve ever wondered how these banking elites sleep at night, I think I’ve figured that out too.
Mulligan didn’t say he was on bath salts. It’s the police who said White Lighting was was “a commercial name for bath salts which possess intoxicating effects similar to methamphetamine.” And the media just ran with it because bath salts are in right now. It makes no sense for a wealthy banker to take bath salts when they have access to pharmacy-grade cocaine if they want it. Well it doesn’t mean bath salts. “White Lighting” is a strain of medical cannabis, specifically one with a reputation for helping people with insomnia. Don’t ask me how I know that. I just know it.
Flanagan reported that Mulligan was driving to medical marijuana dispensary in Highland Park to buy products that help him sleep. He wasn’t awake for days because he was high on bath salts. He was awake for days because he’s a banking executive and his conscience keeps him up at night unless he gets a bong load straight to the dome. Maybe he was a little loopy from insomnia, but he certainly wasn’t a crazed lunatic snarling at cops.
So, why the bath salts ruse? Flanigan nailed it when he said, “The two officers who inflicted the injuries on Mulligan subsequently concocted a police report in an attempt to justify their use of excessive and deadly force.”
Mulligan was beaten to an unidentifiable pump. His nose was fractured in 15 places requiring emergency surgery to keep shards of cartilage and bone from puncturing his brain. He suffered severe facial lacerations, a concussion, and numerous contusions and abrasions. His right shoulder blade was fractured which Flanagan said can “only caused by being struck on that bone by some hard object.”
We are talking about an incredible amount of force and brutality. You can’t tell me this degree of violence was necessary to get a drugged insomniac out of the street. So, they’ve got to trot out bath salts, and reference teeth and claws so people will think of the so-called “Miami Zombie” shot and killed by police in Miami Florida. That incident was highly publicized as cannibalism caused by bath salts, even though the Medical Examiner confirmed there were no bath salts in Rudy Eugene’s system.
So watch out for this in the future. “Bath salts” is going to become a term that scaredy-cops use to mask their violent overreactions after the fact.
