    WHEN THE LANCASTER
    POLICE CHIEF WAS
    A DOMESTIC ABUSER?

        These are the opening sentences to “section 2” of today’s Sunday News editorial about child sexual abuse and domestic violence (click here).
         The hypocrisy of this has me so angry today that I will have to come back to it tomorrow.
         And one of the biggest hypocrites and liars, LNP opinion editor Suzanne Cassidy, goes on a Twitter fest every day! Look at her statistics! Forty or more tweets and retweets a day! Who is she trying to impress? Ain’t nobody gonna hire a liar and hypocrite like you!
         Screenshot of her Twitter account taken at 7:30 am yesterday morning:

    1. My 34 year old daughter is publishing a book where she claims you sexually molested her when she was 15 years of age. Has to be true because she wrote a book about it. You have no defense because you have judged Chief Sadler guilty based on unsubstantiated claims written in a book which to you is gospel. Please admit your guilt like you want Sadler to do. You progrssive liberals hate being confronted with facts don’t you.

    2. Anonymous – Read the editorial:

      And when victims reveal that they’re terrified of people in their lives whom everyone else finds charming, we need to believe them.

      Sadler had a lawyer write this site and threaten to sue me! 🙂 Why didn’t he sue his ex-wife about her book?

    3. Also from the editorial:

      As the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence notes on its website, abusers “come from all groups, all cultures, all religions, all economic levels, and all backgrounds. They can be your neighbor, your pastor, your friend, your child’s teacher, a relative, a coworker — anyone. It is important to note that the majority of abusers are only violent with their current or past intimate partners.”

      According to the coalition, one study found that 90 percent of abusers “do not have criminal records and abusers are generally law-abiding outside the home.”

    4. And, finally, anonymous – Sadler never had to answer a single word about it because LNP had an agreement with Mayor Gray and didn’t want to embarrass him or cause him any controversy because Gray was shoveling LNP money! True!

    5. Basically, as long as Mayor Dick acted in the best interests of Dale High and LNP’s investment into the Con, they (LNP) left him and his cronies alone. By alone, I mean no second guessing and no real questions. They did hard hitting articles the Dickster’s bow tie collection, and once they did and article in which Chief Sadler told of his favorite food and what style of music he liked.

    6. Did you happen to read the comments under the story about the LGH molester?

      Do you think that the LNP will do some investigating about it happening before and alleged payoffs? Don’t hold your breath.

    7. You staunch conservatives don’t seem to mind when the city and media collude to keep your taxpayer money flowing their way. Corporate welfare certainly seems to be a conservative’s blind spot.

    8. Anonymous: if Sadler is innocent why didnt he ever address the book written about him to the public?
      Why didnt Sadler sue his exwife for false accusations? Could it be she had pictures and reports proving he was voilent?
      You would think a police “chief” being accused of abuse would set the record straight especially in that area where hes to protect and serve women also. How could you as a chief allow someone to accuse you and not just anyone but a loved one. Someone you were intimate with smh and never address it but move on to another county and continue to work and hide your past and former lifestyle.
      Is that also why John Caple got away so long with beating his wife? She may have not made it back to court to proceed with pfa but the dept was well aware of the abuse and it continued.We were all asking questions leaving comments on lnpnews and they got deleted and flagged as spam

    9. Really good questions, Ohwellist!!!

    10. Nothing speaks to guilt like silence… Sadler did not comment, sue, etc….because then he would have faced perjury allegations – more of a career killer for a cop than women beating, apparently. Unless, of course, you are Manor Township Police Chief Todd Graeff…convicted of perjury and theft by the PA Ethics Commission, but hired by the township before the report became public. His answer to the media AFTER the fact: “It’s old news”. “The Ethics Commission doesn’t care about the truth”. Yes, they do. That is why they found him guilty as charged. Unanimously. Their ONLY mistake was letting him keep his badge.
      Shame on the A.G.’s office for hiring Sadler. It reflects poorly on Josh Shapiro, IMO, and reminds me of the Catholic church moving priests around.

    11. I completely disagree silence means you’re guilty. Do you know for sure if the former mayor didn’t investigate Sadler’s ex wife’s claims only to find an unprovable she said he said situation? I didn’t read her book but I think I remember reading on this site she herself said she threw a drink in his face. No reason to hit her but indicative of a marital situation where mutual conflict and aggression may have been likely. No matter how flat the pancake there’s always two sides. Did she ever bruise him? I don’t want to know. Just sounds like one of those high drama relationships full of fury and passion that some find hard to leave. Usually both parties bear some responsibility. Don’t jump to any conclusion I defend woman beaters. I don’t. Like any addiction you can’t help someone that isn’t ready for help. I’ve tried.

    12. No one from the city or LNP ever spoke with her.

    13. If I recall correctly from her book, he got mad and just punched her knocking her down the first time.
      .

    14. WTF: Silence does not equate guilt in a court of law. It does in a court of public opinion if one is a public official. I vehemently disagree that “usually both parties bear some responsibilty”. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT MALE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN HERE! AND YOUR COMPARISON TO IT OF AN “ADDICTION” IS SO OUTRAGEOUS AS TO CALL FOR YOUR IMMEDATIATE RESIGNATI FROM WHATEVER IT IS THAT YOU DO.

    15. Name of Sadler’s lawyer, please? So I don’t accidentally use him/her.

    16. SADLER IS CONCERNED FOR HIS SAFETY…

    17. Anonymous like ..yawn. There’s not enough space here to fully explain my thought. Fact is I’ve witnessed several high drama relationships in my life and both seem to get something out of it. I once grabbed some dude that I was told was being physical with his girlfriend only to have her jump on my back and start punching me in the head. I just walked away SMH saying you kids have fun. Of course this doesn’t apply to all. Relationships are as unique as the people in them. Sometimes one can recognize general patterns of behavior. Sometimes. I won’t be quitting anything but I suggest you expand your horizons.
