Media Mistake: Brian Mulligan on Bath Salts – A Story Mistold

Media icon Brian Mulligan was lucky to be alive after brutality at the hands of the LAPD. This is Part 1 in a series about how far the LAPD will go to influence the press and undermine the judicial system to shield its officers from claims of brutality and misconduct. Between the time of his beating and the time he sued, his story grew into a wild new animal where the Mulligan was falsely portrayed as a drug addict, and the LAPD officers were portrayed as victims of Mulligan.

About Technorazzi

Technorazzi Magazine started as a little blog that the founder wrote about friends, coworkers and favorite geeks in Geeksville. The response from the nerd-loving public was enthusiastic. Write more, they said. After all, It's time the tech industry got it's own "paparazzi." And why not give celebrity treatment to software engineers, digital creators and hackers and geeks? They're stars but for different reasons. They often care more about having a breakthrough or finishing a production or improving quality than they care about fighting to get paid. There's something pure about that.

So here we are, evolving. At Technorazzi, we find the passion, determination and eccentricity of developers, geeks, hackers, out-of-the-box thinkers and creative geniuses to be both fascinating and inspiring, and we celebrate that. We focus on the brains, not the beauty; the people, not the gadgets. We write about the colorful, complicated and human side of people who use their brains in original ways.

Welcome to Technorazzi: Paparazzi for tech stars, geniuses, hackers, geeks, eccentrics, creatives & savants.
