  • AFTERNOON UPDATE – NAME THE OFFICERS & MORE!

    Posted on August 24th, 2018 Becky No comments

    WHY ARE THEY
    STILL ON THE FORCE?

        

    A quote from this afternoon’s LNP story shown right (click here).

         Agreed. Both officers should be fired and Detective Nathan Nickel should be charged with assault and witness intimidation. Why hasn’t this happened?

    COMMUNITY OF POWER?

    ***   I have read the below several times and I still don’t understand it (click here for the Facebook page). Sigh!
            Tony Dastra is doing a great service by live-streaming city and other meetings. But, I thought the city was going to start doing this “in-house” and I even wondered if they had hired Dastra to do it for them. It would seem that is not the case.
            I don’t understand what he means by a “subscription model” but if he intends to charge then the city better get on it!

    ARRAIGNMENT WAIVED

    **     On a totally different note, Raymond Rowe was scheduled to have his Formal Arraignment this morning in the Court of Common Pleas for the 1992 murder of Christy Mirack. His attorney, Patricia Spotts, waived the arraignment which is fairly standard and attorney Samuel Encarnacion has been added to his defense team (see the screenshot of part of his docket below).

    THE PUBLIC HAS
    A RIGHT TO KNOW!

    From last night’s Town Hall and the LNP article, “Moving forward: Town hall meeting focuses on use of force, mutual respect between Lancaster citizens, police,” (click here).

         This is unacceptable! This is not transparency. The officers are not named (although the first one is obviously Detective Nathan Nickel) and the length of their unpaid suspensions is not specified.
         This is not “moving forward” and this is not acceptable! Name the officers and tell the public how long they were “suspended!”
    Please check back later today.
