"After finding discrepancies in the term 'Mentally Disabled' in Fullerton Police Manuals, and trying to reconcile this against the California Penal Codeís use of 'Mentally Disordered', we noticed that the bottom of all of the documents had a copyright. Specifically, 'Copyright 1995-2012 Lexipol, L.L.C.'
Apparently, Lexipol, LLC is a company that sells police departments pre-made manuals, that they can edit and add to. And from what we can gather, Fullerton Police are using an almost standard version of it, probably very close to the version they purchased."
The question is: Are they doing this our of sheer laziness or because they take certain marching orders from special interests? I assume it's a combination of both, actually.
