* I’m in shock. The only thing I know about Cassidy is that she did write on a lot of “women’s issues” – like today’s front-page piece on college rape. But to write that editorial and to have a guest columnist write about domestic violence knowing full well that the Lancaster Police Chief’s ex-wife has written a book alleging he beat her for years and LNP has never once mentioned the fact is beyond all comprehension. It is a direct blow to the face of every man and woman living in Lancaster County and inconceivable to any real journalist.
She just showed her true colors and it’s just more of the same unbelievable crap and lies from LNP. It is total deception and it is absolutely disgusting!
[Editor’s note: I just posted this in the comments and I am also moving it here as today’s update. I just can’t take any more of these blatant, disgusting lies. How do these people live with themselves? I have run out of time and will have today’s promised story tomorrow.]
BY SUZANNE CASSIDY!
We need to see domestic violence for the horrible and insidious crime that it is. And we need to hold abusers — and those who enable abusers — accountable for their crimes.
Domestic violence is inflicted on the young, the middle-aged, the elderly. It is inflicted on the rich, the poor, the middle class. It is inflicted on those of all races and religions.
And it will be happening even as you settle in to watch football this afternoon.
Just ask any of the estimated 10,000 victims of domestic violence in our community alone.
From today’s Sunday News editorial by Suzanne Cassidy, “EDITORIAL: No video needed to convey horror of domestic violence,” (click here).
This past Wednesday, the Philadelphia Daily News ran a huge story on page three on domestic violence among police officers and the photo and storyline began with Rosa Torres-Sadler, the ex-wife of Lancaster Police Chief Keith Sadler, who has written a book stating he beat her for years and made her partially blind (click here). And for over two years the Lancaster Newspapers have intently and purposely covered-up this fact and withheld this vital information from the public that they absolutely need to know.
And under their new “Editorial Page Editor” they did it again today. You are a liar and a disgrace to those 10,000 victims of domestic violence, Suzanne Cassidy!
Cassidy should not even call herself a journalist! The first core principle of journalism from the PEW Research Group is (click here):
1. Journalism’s first obligation is to the truth.
And the second is:
2. Its first loyalty is to citizens.
You have failed at both of these, Suzanne Cassidy! What an absolute disgrace!
Coming later today, the story behind this explosive video and a real “stand your ground” case.
