  • AFTERNOON UPDATE – REMOVE STEDMAN FROM OFFICE!

    Posted on October 25th, 2017 Becky 5 comments

    STIR IT UP!

          DA Stedman caused a stir at the NAACP forum when he opened with a declaration that there is no systematic racial discrimination in Lancaster County.
    From the September 28, 2014 LNP editorial, “We must confront the issue of race in Lancaster,” (click here).       
         Stedman is a “good” liar but this time he lied to a group of people who know the truth! And the editors and reporters at LNP are also liars because there has been systematic racial discrimination at LNP for years and years and they all know it and nothing has been done about it. And LNP simply ignores the massive racial injustices that go on in the county courthouse and District Judges’ courtrooms across the county every single day under Stedman.
         The Lancaster NAACP and the Lancaster City Human Relations Commission should be speaking out about Stedman and telling everyone in the state what a racist and a liar he is!
         There will be more tomorrow.

    *******

    WEST, DAVIS,
    GARDILL & ROSADO!

         The four cases below should have ended District Attorney Craig Stedman’s career. Instead, with the help of LNP covering-up for him, he is running to be a Superior Court Judge.
         This is an outrage and the State Attorney General’s office should review these cases and take Stedman’s law license away. The four cases are:

    —  The November 12, 2012 car crash of Katie West that killed her husband and son. They charged a trucker, recent immigrant Emmanuel Noviho, who was acquitted in a jury trial of two counts of vehicular homicide. West was high on heroin and was not charged with any crime. Her brother is then county commissioner and now state senator Scott Martin.

     

    —  The shooting death of two-month-old Kestyn Davis by her father, G. Scott Davis, on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2013. Davis is the step brother-in-law of state representative Bryan Cutler and received unbelievably preferential treatment.

     

    —  The violent home invasion on March 2, 2014 in Mountville by Luke Karpathios and Devin Gardill. Gardill is the son of a West Hempfield Township police officer and the preferential treatment these two received is beyond outrageous and absolutely unconscionable.

     

    —  The shooting death of 15-year-old Ibram Hanna in Mountville on August 12, 2016. The District Attorney’s office closed this case in under 11 hours and announced that the shooter, 17-year-old George Rosado would be charged as a juvenile. This entire case needs to be reviewed by the U.S. Department of Justice.

    1. Obviously minorities fare very poorly under Stedman’s rule in Lancaster. Since the Superior Court race is statewide, shouldn’t the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh newspapers be screaming about Stedman’s records so that Republican voters don’t get hoodwinked by the GOP machine and also so that Democratic voters come out in droves? Hopefully your site is being sent to the editors at those papers.

    2. I have mixed feelings about a Stedman win. At least it would get him out of the county.

    3. huh? I respect your opinion but really???? It’s as if people feel Stedman has a right to a public job. He’s going to lose the statewide race and then be out at the DA’s office. We can get him off the public dole and get his hand out of our pockets. He can try to make it in the public sector.

    4. “To elect Craig Stedman to a Superior Court judgeship to get him out of Lancaster is the stupidest, most ill-informed, backward, and sociopathic piece of advice I have ever heard of. Voters here who dont like or trust him should foist him on the rest of the state where he can do even more harm to more people???!!! Typical thinking in this county, though”…
      This was the response I got from “Anonymous”
      late last night for suggesting something akin to your post. You seem to have been the beneficiary of a good night’s sleep. Or perhaps the idea is growing on him…

    5. I’m not exactly sure what the two posts from “anonymous” mean but let me clarify:

      I didn’t know that if he ran for the judgeship that he would be out as DA whether he won or lost.

      What you say makes sense to me and it explains why him running for office is good for Lancaster no matter what the results of the election are. I thought he would just go back to being the DA if he lost… like John McCain and Tim Kaine for instance. John lost the presidential election and Tim Kaine just lost the vice presidential election but they are still senators.

      Thank you for the added information. Now I understand.
