Pa. police chief's suspension under review

Published: Thu, August 1, 2013 @ 5:15 p.m.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The lawyer for a police chief who posted a profanity-laden video online says he’s reviewing the legality of his client’s 30-day unpaid suspension for using borough weapons and ammunition without prior approval.

Joseph Nahas said today that Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler believes he did have permission to use the equipment he was shown firing.

Nahas says he and Kessler haven’t talked about litigation, but points out Kessler has an employment contract, and state law gives him certain protections as a chief of police.

Nahas says Kessler is worried the borough council that suspended him on Wednesday night may move to terminate him before he’s scheduled to return to the job.

This slob should be fired not suspended. I'm sure he lied when he took his oath of office. I'm sure it didn't state that he could be as bigoted and biased as he wanted to be on the job. But this cop isn't alone in his behavior. I personally know of a beaver township cop who is one of the most biased and racist cops I have ever met. This slob ID everyone by a ethnic or racist insult and IDs the president as that fu$$en ni@@er president. So this PIG isn't alone in his actions it everywhere.
