Legislative Alert: Legislation Attempts to Impose New Internet Sales Tax (tags)
On Tuesday, the Senate agreed to begin debating a small business tax bill (S.2237) that some say could boost job creation.

However, it appears that the Orange County D.A. investigator Stan Berry is close friends with Fullerton police Chief Sellers, this could explain the "uncertainty" coming from the OC coroner and the D.A's failure to contact eyewitnesses present when Kelly Thomas was beaten by Fullerton police.
