*     Caple’s attorney, Gary Efstration, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Friday.
From the LNP article.
     The below is from his website (click here). I don’t think women will be rushing to you, Mr. Efstration, and it looks like Jonathan Caple will have to sue LNP before he sues me! I don’t appreciate baseless threats!

*   The story is now online. Click here for, “Woman says she fears for her life in temporary protection from abuse order against Lancaster city police officer.”



From Page A-3 of today’s LNP print edition.

     The article is not currently online. I will link as soon as it becomes available.

    Intelligence has nothing to do with it. YOU try going one on one against a corrupt cop. Or judge.

    More like Gary Frustration…

    Ef … stration is what she will be feeling. Is that a REAL name? Seriously?

    And I seriously doubt the accuser has a lawyer because she wont find an advocate. PA hates whistleblowers and the louder she blows the more they will turn the tables until she is eaten up and spit out by the so called justice system – judges included. Conrad should recuse? Think he will do that? No way. She needs to move and change her name. PFA IS worthless and she is spinning her wheels thinking anyone wants to “help” her.

    Anonymous: I read the comments under the article as well. I came away with the feeling that despite everything known today that wasn’t known in the past never sinks in. People have a tendency to hang on to the things they learned or heard decades ago and are not open to anything new.

    The defense of cops in general there on the forum… it’s as if none of these people have seen the hundreds of videos that were citizen-made. So many blind eyes. And their arguments are so concrete – nuance is not necessarily a forte of the commenters for the most part.

    In my own lifetime I have seen women I know be abused and yet return to the abuser. And studies have shown why that happens. I’ve also seen examples of husbands who were terribly abused by their wives and ended up having a false PFA lodged against them so that the wife can clean out their shared residence and bank accounts because the man is barred from going to the home.

    I have seen the effect of worthless PFAs in that a piece of paper means nothing to the abuser. And stories of the abused getting tens of hundreds of years behind bars because a jury will ultimately say that the victim should have left.

    There are so many gray areas but the commenters are either ignorant or unwilling to allow facts and examples to temper their beliefs.

    I stay away from commenting on those threads because – just as in this post – you can’t explain without going into detail. And commenters aren’t interested in that.

    Huh. I thought the same thing when I read that. Either really bad writing or really bad reporting that reporter didnt ask that. Typical local LNP story…it leaves you with more questions than answers. I must say, tho, the manority of male commenters on there are idiots.

    How many of his blue co-workers knew what an abusive SOB he is and yet said nothing? They’re just as guilty.

  8. huh? says:

    “Caple, who has been with the department since 2005, is on modified duty that is not related to the matter, Berkihiser said.”

    What the hell else has this guy done?

  9. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
