I am doing some research this afternoon but truth – if it is truth in this case – really is stranger than fiction. An 18-year-old was willing to pour gasoline on a city owned vehicle and the entrance to city hall and light it for $40 (click here)! Now he is in Lancaster County Prison also on $2 million cash bail. You can imagine the comments on social media…
* This part of a comment came in this morning under yesterday’s post and I have also moved it under this post:
London’s claim that his property was improperly condemned due to a leaking downspout and not a leaking sanitary sewer as was reported, should be easily verifiable one way or the other. It would be nice to see the documentation prepared by the city code officials in condemning the property. London publicly made the claim the condemnation was improper, the city needs to publicly respond and provide verifiable documentation.
If it wasn’t actually a leaking sanitary sewer, but only a downspout there is credibility to be lost by the city and gained by London.
Excellent, excellent point! Will LNP follow-up on this? I will file a Right to Know request for the condemnation documents. It would also be responsible of council to release to the public the document London handed to each council member and the mayor at Tuesday’s meeting.
& IGNORING THE OBVIOUS
So let me get this straight. LNP reporter Tim Stuhldreher attended Tuesday’s city council meeting sitting in his normal seat in the front row and somehow he doesn’t think that Dwain London Sr. addressing city council is newsworthy (see the posts below on this site)? Unbelievable!
