  • AFTERNOON UPDATE – INCREDIBLE LNP HYPOCRISY!

    Posted on October 4th, 2018 Becky 4 comments
         I know you are probably tired of reading about former Police Chief Keith Sadler and his ex-wife’s book stating he beat her for years and the absolute hypocrisy of the LNP editorial board regarding it. I’m tired of writing about it!
         But it’s true and it’s absolutely awful and if Suzanne Cassidy, Tom Murse and Barbara Hough Roda of LNP think they can get away with their unbelievable cover-up because Sadler resigned for a new position before the new mayor came in, well, they are wrong and other news organizations will find out!
         There will be more tomorrow – including a list – because as Robert Field of NewsLanc.com writes, these individuals are guilty of so much hypocrisy and so much false reporting that it is unbelievable, unethical and inhumane.

    **  Lancaster city police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser announced at a community forum Thursday that the unnamed, female officer who left the message was suspended without pay for an unspecified amount of time.
         …Berkihiser also said an officer who interacted with a witness during a July 5 arrest captured on video broke standards of conduct.
         A video shows an officer threatening to arrest a woman filming the incident.
         That officer also was not identified and also was suspended without pay for an unspecified amount of time, Berkihiser said.
    From the LNP article, “Canadian says suspension for Lancaster officer who left threatening voicemail is ‘step in the right direction’ but not enough,” (click here).
    Do not brag about the Lancaster City Police, LNP, with your absurd headline (see below)! Do not tell me that they are “among best in U.S.” We still do not know the identity of the female officer who left the message and for exactly how long she was suspended. And she should be fired!
         And while the second incident is obviously Detective Nathan Nickel, he has never been formally named by the police and he also assaulted a prone, incapacitated suspect on the ground in the same video. He has probably been using excessive force and intimidating civilians for years!
         This is very disturbing and yet no one; not the mayor or city council or LNP is demanding answers!
    [Editor’s note: While the police were discussing de-escalation methods and tactics, Councilwoman Janet Diaz specifically asked about “hostage situations.” Chief Jarrad Berkihiser was evasive and did not really answer her question but I need to listed to the live-stream again and be more specific about his reply in light of the recent police shooting death of Ricardo Avenia (“Macho”).  But good for Diaz!]

    1. LNP never demands answers from anyone on anything. LNP; Let’s Not Pursue.

    2. It is equally despicable that the county d.a. – and the attorney general, for whom Sadler now works – would turn a blind eye. Especially with the national spotlight on Kavanaugh the way it is, it is unbelievable that Lancaster and, now Pennsylvania, could keep such a secret. One would think there would have been, at the least, an inquiry of some sort. It speaks very poorly of the entire state, IMO. But Lancaster County hates women and PA hates whistleblowers so that, apparently, is that.

    3. It’s time for her to rewrite the book and name names

    4. Lancaster City and County don’t like boat rockers and trouble makers who question authority. This is why stories about woopie pies and chicken corn soup along with the LNP secret diner are front page news.
