      Brett Hambright, spokesman for District Attorney Craig Stedman, has been tweeting today about a ceremony at LGH this morning about domestic violence. In the above he quotes DA Craig Stedman and Lancaster City Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser as follows:
—    Stedman: Children in domestic violence settings are forgotten victims. “What they see, what they hear” have ‘profound effect.’
— Berkihiser: Domestic violence, unfortunately, “still widely accepted” in our communities.
     That’s touching, guys. Why didn’t either of you speak up about former Police Chief Keith Sadler whose ex-wife has written a book stating he beat her for years?
     And the way they got away with it: Because LNP decided to use their extreme power as the only news source in Lancaster County to withhold that information from the public so as not to embarrass Mayor Gray who was supporting and shoveling them money for their convention center/hotel. Unbelievable – but true!


**  On the same Sunday night, September 16th, that a Lancaster City Police Officer shot and killed Ricardo Avenia, there was another shooting (click here for the police press release a portion of which is below):
     On Sunday 16 September 2018 at approximately 2241 hrs. Officers from Lancaster City and assisting Police agencies from Lancaster County responded to the 500 blk. Green St. for a report of a shooting. 
     Upon arrival, Officers found a male with a gunshot wound to the area of his neck/ face. The victim was conscious and walking and held a towel on the injury. The male was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The injury does not appear to be life threatening. 
     While clearly overshadowed by the police involved shooting, there has not been another word about this! Where does the investigation stand? What is the man’s condition today?



*    The first arriving Officer located a male who was walking toward the Police cruiser. The male, a 24 year old resident of Lancaster City, was holding a tee shirt to his neck and was bleeding from a gun shot wound to his neck.

     WGAL has a brief piece up on the shooting last evening at about 6:30 pm at Manor and Old Dorwart Streets (click here).
Please check back later today.

    They do have a hostage negotiator – Chester Win. Your mistake is believing they want to take the subject alive.

  2. huh? says:

    Is this a national thing or just a local thing dreamed up half-baked as a precursor to Stedman declaring that the identity of the officer who shot through the window will remain anonymous?

    Making it ‘all about the children?’

    Still can’t believe that LPD doesn’t have a hostage negotiator.

    DA should of invited Off John Caple aka Patches and old chief of police Sadler. It would of been hilarious to see him talk while they stood by his side

    Craig Stedman is a disgrace. He does nothing to protect women. Or dogs. In fact, he treats both the same. Out of sight, out of mind.
    Lets not forget he will be running for a seat on the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas in 2019.
    Therefore, expect many more of these hypocritical displays as his agenda of gender politics plays out.
    And always note that there is no advance notice of his schedule of events because he is afraid that women will show up in droves to protest.
    He wants THEM out of sight and out of voters’ minds before election day 2019.
    I hope women do not forget his crimes against humanity when they pull a lever for anyone BUT Stedman. Trust me…he could not care less about anyone’s opinion of him, no matter how well-reasoned, except as to how it might impact his political aspirations.

      I can’t believe they think they can sell papers/have people subscribe to their digital paper and online content with front page lead stories like that!!! “COLORS MAY FALL FLAT” Oh, how clever – NOT!
