BUDGET ADDRESS TONIGHT!
From tonight’s city council meeting agenda (click here for the full agenda).
There is a very important city council meeting tonight at 7:30 pm when Mayor Sorace is scheduled to present the proposed 2020 budget (click here to watch the livestream on the city’s YouTube channel).
I will report on that tomorrow and then this site will go on Thanksgiving vacation until Sunday, December 1st, when daily publishing will resume.
* The below is part of an excellent comment into this site:
I find it weird that the serve and protect philosophy has been replaced by jackbooted skinheads who appear to have zero training on how to deescalate situations like this one – an unarmed piss-drunk woman. Time and time again, their actions as I’ve seen in these videos escalate suspects. It sometimes appears that it is done purposely so they can take out aggressions that have zero to do with the person being detained.
And if they do this in public, I can only imagine how they behave in private.
And sure as anything, this woman will retain a lawyer for permanent head injuries suffered when he smashed her head to the ground. Regardless of her guilt or innocence.
CHANGE THE TRAINING!

Berkihiser [Lancaster City Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser] defended the officer’s actions.
“Basically the officer was doing everything he was trained to do,” he said Monday.
From the LNP article linked to above.
And that is why there were three federal lawsuits filed against your officers in a recent six week period!
