    — The Lancaster City Police Press Release on the shooting at Smithgall’s Pharmacy is here.


         There is shocking news about former Mayor Charlie Smithgall – click here for, “Former Mayor Charlie Smithgall taken to hospital after reported shooting at his pharmacy.” Wishing him all the best and a speedy recovery.
         Tonight there is a City Council Public Safety Committee meeting on police body cameras (click here for the Facebook event page shown below). It is from 6 to 7 pm and will be held in Council Chambers at City Hall, 120 North Duke Street.


    **    Watch WGAL’s Katelyn Smith’s video on the taxi driver, Jesus Rosario, charged with raping a customer (click here). She actually looks and sounds shocked and scared by it all. And we have never seen a photo of Rosario – no mugshot anywhere! Why? Shouldn’t women know what this man looks like? I will put in a request for his mugshot today.

    *     LNP reporter Lindsey Blest wrote both rape stories linked to below. Did it occur to her to ask the District Judges or the DA’s office about the difference in bail amounts? Wouldn’t the average person, let alone a “reporter,” want answers? Doesn’t the public have a right to know?

    $200,000 CASH BAIL
    & $150,000 UNSECURED!

    Posted on Lancaster Online under the article, “Former Franklin & Marshall College student charged with rape on campus in 2017,” (click here).

         This is the obvious, huge question! What took eleven months? Imagine the victim’s fear and an alleged rapist was allowed to walk the street for eleven months? Will anyone in Lancaster demand answers?
         Does F&M really care? They have the power and influence to demand answers from the police, the mayor and city council! Why didn’t they?
         And why is Felicius Bucyukundi’s bail set at $200,000 cash and Jesus Rosario, a taxi driver who is charged with the rape of a customer, free on $150,000 unsecured bail? Why?
    Click here for the October 2nd article, “Lancaster city taxi driver charged with raping woman after dropping her off at home,” and check back later today.    


    One response to “* AFTERNOON UPDATE – DOES F&M REALLY CARE?”

    1. LNP, DA, LPD. All together are like a confederacy of dunces.
