OR THE GREATEST CROCK!Posted on August 29th, 2012 16 comments
GREATEST IN THE COUNTRY?
Detective Chris DePatto
Chief Sadler looks forward a long and enjoyable tenure with the City of Lancaster and he believes the City and the Bureau of Police to be the greatest in the country.
The Lancaster Police website (click here and it is the very last sentence).
The detectives have followed up numerous leads and in any homicide investigation where you don’t have a clear-cut suspect right from the beginning it’s sometimes very difficult.
Police Chief Keith Sadler on Fox 43 “explaining” why there has been no arrest in the May 16th brutal murder of 83-year-old Erma Kaylor (click here).
Is that a fact, Chief? I thought you told me they were “trained professionals.” Isn’t this their job, Chief? Isn’t this why they are highly trained and well paid – to solve crimes and protect us? You think they’re the greatest in the country?
That certainly doesn’t bode well for all of the other unsolved murders and crimes, does it Chief? You told me they work on the unsolved murders everyday? Exactly what are they doing, Chief?
And I most certainly am not buying this “clear-cut suspect” in the case of 83-year-old Erma Kaylor who never left her home, who was not robbed and owned nothing of value and there was no forced entry.
If you didn’t have a “clear-cut suspect right from the beginning” then your detectives have a major problem. Everyone in the neighborhood and members of her family had a clear-cut suspect right from the beginning – and they still do. So why didn’t your detectives and why haven’t they made an arrest?
Have you given him a DNA test? Have you brought him in for questioning? Have you given him a lie detector test? Why not?
The picture at the top of this piece is Chris Depatto, the lead detective on the case. Immediately below are his “credentials” as presented to a Judge in the Affidavit of Probable Cause for a search warrant in Erma Kaylor’s murder. The public pays this man a very good salary and we’ve paid for all the training he’s taken over his 22 year history with the police. You mean this trained professional cannot get this vicious, evil killer off the streets?
Then bring in outside help, Chief Sadler, and do it now! You obviously need it!

Folks, they have just posted on the police Facebook page that two “NEW FORD INTERCEPTORS ARE IN SERVICE.” And they have pictures! I wonder how much they cost? Could they solve some crimes?
For those of you on Facebook this is the link:
These are some of their features!
Other features of the Ford Interceptor include:
• Ecoboost V6 engine
• All-wheel drive
• Heavy duty front suspension, braking system, subframe and cooling system
• 220 amp alternator
• Steel wheels
• Side airbags
• 75-mph rear crash tested
How sad, I wonder if they have better things to do. Damage control. They need damage control.
Rosa, they’ve been doing damage control on that FB page all day! Don’t they have some work to do? Something about a benefit for the mounted division, warning about a scam they took from WGAL and other nonsense. They need to stop this and do some real work!

Look..the only way this crime gets solved is for the killer to walk into the station and admit it. There will then a huge round of backslapping and congratulations for all the great work done by the Lancaster Police detective bureau. Of course, your readers have known for some time who likely committed the horrific murder of Mrs. Kaylor.
As for all the Facebook activity by the Lancaster City Police, I would think Mayor Gray would be outraged. How much is that nonsense costing the city. I’d think the fire department members would be totally pissed too. They can barely function with their limited staffing, yet the PD has people sitting around posting on Facebook. Crazy!
As they say, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” No pun intended.
Did you see Manuel Abrante III, who was shot by Officer Zahm last year, apologized to many of the officers and thanked Zahm for saving his life? I’m not saying all of the cops are great at what they do or are model citizens, but as quick as you are to bash every one of them, there are never any stories to show the other side of their job. I’ve never been a cop, but I would imagine their days are more stressful than posting in a blog.
Wow, outstanding Bumstead….all I can say is outstanding.
Matt,maybe if they could solve murders they’d get some credit.
Matt, I did see that and had hoped to attend but wasn’t able. I’ll have more on it later!
Oh, dear lord! Now they are posting “inside” pictures of the car. Matt, at least one policeman is sitting and posting on a blog all day! Do you think he’s stressed?
There is a article in Philly.com about history of Domestic Violence by a high ranking officer. I believe in my heart their are some really good police officers but….Our police departments and State Police departments must not cover up the truth. The bad apples are not making it easy for the good ones.
Thanks, Rosa. I hope to link to that this afternoon as well. A must read!
This has now gone up on the Police Facebook page and this is no longer humorous at all – do some damn work!

Thank you Becky. I do not know of anyone but….You (Becky)…Continue the great work.
To Matt: It seems absurd I have to say this, but of course I appreciate the work the police do and I appreciate it when they do an excellent job – remember this: http://lipnews.com/2012/06/the-way-it-should-be-done/
Argh… Not a good day! I have too much to write about! I’ll try to pare it down and have it all make sense tomorrow before this site goes on a holiday break!
