STEDMAN IS A LIAR!

From the LNP article, “Lancaster County DA: $150,000 missing in alleged ‘internal theft’, attorney general to investigate,” (click here).

     *
     As noted here yesterday, former DA Craig Stedman and his “spokesman,” Brett Hambright, lied and lied to the public about this. And now liar Stedman is a Lancaster County Judge! Simply unbelievable!

****
—    So, the head of the Drug Task Force, John Burkhart, who oversaw the spending of thousands of dollars in drug forfeiture cash sitting in a safe in the DA’s office, was suddenly fired on Monday and the public has not been given a clue as to why? Unbelievable.
From March 5, 2020 on this site (click here).
*
—   Adams said the audit by the Controller that former DA and now Judge, Craig Stedman, repeatedly referred to is “not a true audit.” Stedman lied over and over again.

THROWING STONES?

     Well, look who showed up under Harper’s thread. A childhood “friend”  and convicted serial stalker Steve Markle (Cindy Miller) who Harper has a website about (“Stalker Warning”) and a Writ to sue him and his wife (see the Prothonotary’s offce).
     I have been working on fixing the masthead on this site today but there will be much more coming on all of this. The internet is wild and childhood friends who live in glass houses should not throw stones!

HARPER: ZERO SENSE OF HUMOR!

     Don’t tell me what’s funny and what’s not, Harper! I’ll decide for myself and that video is absolutely disgusting (the video is below the screenshot of Harper’s Facebook post on this site). Why don’t you list all the sexual misconduct allegations against Trump by 20 women?
     And you are worried about Pennsylvania jobs but you haven’t had a job in years? Who paid for the triple heart bypass surgery you just had? Hmmm…
**  Really? Your “little toe’s NAIL?” Prove it!

LITTLE GOD?

   This is the third time Harper refers to Anthony Fauci as “your little God.”  He’s not my God and Harper is just ridiculously jealous. Oh, and I’m not going to listen to sudden expert on Covid-19 – Harper – I will listen to Fauci. Oh, and I had it so I am more of an expert than Harper!

MIDLIFE CRISIS?

DO THE CRIME
DO THE TIME!

     Good afternoon,
     I see that ARD is no longer listed on Christopher Young’s docket. Perhaps your contact had something to do with the change. Thank you for bringing it forward.
This email in today.
     No – thank you for making me aware of this. They just do whatever they want in that  racist courthouse and no one holds anyone accountable. It is scary! If you know anything that should be reported, please contact  this site.
     Please go a few posts down for the facts on Christopher Young and thank you for your patience with this site. I get stronger every day. Covid – 19 is awful.

SEVERAL THINGS IN COMMON? OH, MY!

     Who is that man? This is driving me crazy. I think I know him. And he doesn’t look that down on his luck to me. A nice coat over another nice coat and sunglasses! He looks okay to me. And I know this man – I recognize him – who is he? Please, please let me know.
     And what he did was extremely nice and I would have easily given him a twenty dollar bill. When I went into the hospital for Covid-19, I was without a phone for almost two weeks. And then there was the computer situation. What a story! It was scary as hell.
     So Nephin and I have several things in common? Hmmm… 

UPDATE 5-19 – WHITE PRIVILEGE ON FULL DISPLAY!

Posted in Lancaster Courts, Lancaster Newspapers, Police, Racism, Unsolved Murders | 12 Comments

THEY AREN’T WHITE?

 

Judge Jeffrey Conrad (left) and retired and former President Judge Joseph Madenspacher.

—   Rape. It’s called rape.
—   Rape. The word you’re looking for is “rape.”
—   If only there were a shorter way to say “and had sex with her despite being told to stop”……. #itscalledrape
Posted on Lancaster Online under the story, “East Earl police officer placed on leave after abuse allegations,” (click here).
     So, all of those people are guilty of slander as well? And on a public forum that is much, much larger than this site?
     This is how they “protect” the white and privileged in Lancaster County! Who is going to stop the District Attorney and the Judges from doing this? Who will say “You can’t ARD that! It was not intended nor written for violent/sexual crimes!”
      It should be the Lancaster Newspapers who ultimately hold these officials accountable – but they never have. Up until two years ago, white privilege everywhere was just fine with this newspaper and the owners. I wrote about the racism at LNP for years.
      LNP ignored the public outcry when President Judge Joseph Madenspacker broke the law to protect a cop’s son and his friend (click here for “Cop’s son and friend face 9-month stint in ‘motivational boot camp’ for raid of West Hempfield home”).
     Jeffrey Conrad, who was one of the teenager’s defense attorneys and is now a Judge – agreed to the boot camp and said one of the scariest and most racist things I have heard in a Lancaster courtroom: He said to Judge Madenspacher, “He [his client Luke Karpathios] doesn’t look like a criminal.” Judge Madenspacher nodded his head and agreed. What does a criminal look like in Lancaster County? Apparently they aren’t white!

 

UPDATE 5-19-20 – “SLANDER?”

        This email in yesterday:
     I guess the word “slander” is unfamiliar to you. Here is the definition: the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person’s reputation. Young was not accused of or charged with rape. Using your thinking, Joe Biden is a rapist because of the allegations against him.
     Seriously? Are you his attorney?
Please check back later today.

 

LAWBREAKERS?

            

    District Attorney Heather Adams (left) and Lancaster County Judge Margaret C. Miller.

     Will these two women defy the law and allow a rapist into the ARD program? How long has this been going on in Lancaster?

Please see yesterday’s post and check back later today.

UPDATED 5-17-20 – ARD FOR RAPE?

Posted in Lancaster Courts, Lancaster Newspapers, Police, Racism, Unsolved Murders | 6 Comments

NON-VIOLENT

DO YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT, JUDGE MILLER?

          According to his docket, former East Earl Police Officer Christopher Young is scheduled to have a “Video/Telephone Hearing” this coming Friday at 9:20 am with Judge Margaret C. Miller and the “Event Type” is listed as “ARD.”
     Why would “ARD” appear anywhere near this man’s name or on his docket sheet at all? From the Dicindio Law, LLC website there is this – “What is The ARD Program in PA?” -which opens with the following sentence (click here):
     The Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program in Pennsylvania offers non-violent first-time offenders an option for expungement of the charges brought against them upon successful completion of rehabilitation and supervision.
      “Non-violent?” Young is charged with sexual assault, simple assault and stalking. Does it get any more violent than that? And, the ARD program also means he would have no jail time.
      Oh no, Judge Miller and all the other Lancaster Judges: You aren’t going to get away with this sickening “justice” this time. The white privilege that goes on in that courthouse daily must end.
Click here for another blatant white men/policeman privilege case where then President Judge Joseph Madenspacher broke the law to “protect” these two teenagers: “Cop’s son and friend face 9-month stint in ‘motivational boot camp’ for raid of West Hempfield home,” and there will be much more tomorrow.

IT’S CALLED RAPE! – 2

      This email in. They will do anything to protect these creeps! Well, not this time!
Becky,
     First off, so sorry that you had to endure COVID19, and happy that you survived it. I have been fortunate so far, but don’t take anything for granted.  These are scary times, and I am happy to follow Gov. Wolf’s advice and stay home.
     I checked in on Christopher Young’s docket sheet and see he has an ARD video hearing scheduled. . .  I don’t know the law, but I hope one can’t get ARD for a sexual assault charge?  Wondering if you know anything.
     OMG! They can’t get away with this! I will call the court on Monday. Click here for “IT’S CALLED RAPE.”

A NASTY DIVORCE

       Lancaster Attorney Justin Gearty committed suicide Monday night. His daughter’s GoFundMe account is here. There will be much more to come.

GOOD OLE WHITE BOYS

(Click here for the LNP article)

     From the West Lampeter Police Department press release (click here):
     Tyler STOLTZFUS and Joseph DUIGNAN were arraigned before MDJ William BENNER Jr and were both released on $25,000.00 unsecured bail.
      Also from the same press release there is this:

     The West Lampeter Township Police Department investigated multiple criminal mischiefs occurring during the overnight hours between 01/26/20 – 03/05/20 in which the windows of vehicles and residences were shot out.  The damages of the criminal mischiefs occurring in West Lampeter Township exceeded $11,000.00.
     Charges were filed against Tyler STOLTZFUS and Joseph DUIGNAN before MDJ William BENNER Jr for Criminal Mischief (19 counts) with the grading ranging from summary to felony of the 3rd degree), Criminal Conspiracy to Commit Criminal Mischief and Possessing Instruments of Crime.
     So, for over a month, these two 19-year-olds were destroying property and endangering lives and they got unsecured bail?
     President Judge David Ashworth recently told LNP there are two reasons for bail:
1. To make sure the defendant shows up for their court proceedings.
2. To protect the public from possible future actions of the defendant.
     These were violent crimes committed over a period of a month and the public does not need protection? Were they just being good ole white boys?
Please check back later today.

UPDATED – “STAY AT HOME!”

UPDATE 3-24-20

     This comment in from barryinwinnipeg:
     OMG, your president states that he now wants the economy open for business by Easter! I am flabbergasted beyond words! As seniors, my wife and I are living in virtual house arrest, which is okay, and it’s the earliest I’ve ever filed my Canadian and US tax returns, Tand my Daughter and Son-in-law are working from home, while my Son, an essential City of Winnipeg employee, is trying to get an upgraded computer so that he can work from home (he is immuno compromised), all to help flatten the curve on this outbreak, and here in Manitoba we have, so far, had only twenty confirmed cases! And your Dear Leader wants to get everyone back in the line of fire within two or three weeks, just as this outbreak is starting to surge! As a retired clergyman, I’m not given to profanity on posts, but…if I were… (fill it in here)!

KNOW YOUR FACTS

         Um, to the person who sent in the below comment: If you have paid attention to the news at all for the last week, the medical professionals are stating that if you don’t have current symptoms or respiratory distress, they recommend you do not get tested. Others need it and it uses masks and other medical devices that are desperately needed by the medical community.
     I have not left my house for 10 days and do not plan to leave it for another five days. I very much doubt I have “infected hundreds  of other people.” Find something real to complain about.
 
     “I see no reason to get tested at this point”. Um because the virus can live up to two weeks. If you really did/do have it, you could have infected hundreds if other people. But what the hell. As long as you’re feeling better that’s all that matters.

LITTLE IS OPEN

     LNP has had this at the top of their home page for a week now. Maybe they should change this to “What’s Open?” Not much.
Please check back later today.

UPDATE – * NO STRENGHT WHATSOEVER!

Posted in General News | 17 Comments

UPDATE 3-22-20

     I feel much better today – my strength is coming back. No, I have not been tested.
     About ten days ago I noticed my strength was diminishing suddenly. Carrying groceries into the house  became harder. I took the steps slower. I got sharp pains in my back and stomach. I did not feel good.
     The strength issue became so severe that walking from my living room to the kitchen became difficult. I felt awful and spent most of my time sleeping or sitting on the sofa. I did not have flu symptoms.
     When I began to read about these symptoms in others with Covid-19,
I wondered. I see no reason to get tested at this point. Others need it far more.
     Anyway,  I am on my way to recovery and will come back to the news tomorrow.

****

*    It’s already here and spreading. Over the past 10 days my wife and I (healthy and fit 28 year olds) have suffered from fever, sharp body pains, fatigue, dry cough, and shortness of breath. We couldn’t drive ourselves to urgent care and have struggling to even get around the house without getting faint and needing to lay down and recover our breaths.
This is part of a comment posted on Lancaster Online under the story about the first diagnosed case in Lancaster County.
     Exactly!

CORVID-19 – UPDATE

     So, apparently I spoke to soon when several days ago I posted that I felt lousy but it wasn’t Covid-19. It appears it is and it is absolutely awful.
     More to follow if I can get the strength!

HOW MUCH MONEY HAS THE CITY SPENT ON MAW?

Posted in Convention Center, General News, Lancaster Newspapers | 1 Comment

MAWING OUR MONEY!

       This email just in with the subject “MAW GONE?”:
       Heard from a VERIZON employee the other day that Verizon is putting 5G wireless all over Lancaster City.  Asked what that means for MAW…he laughed.  City got screwed to the tune of??? since with 5G no one will even worry about old style internet.  AT&T also doing same.  Someone should find out what the hell has happened, how much the city has paid in direct fees to MAW and legal fees, and who is responsible for this fiasco.
      I’m not sure they are completely gone. From things said at various city council meetings, I believe MAW is still involved with the Lancaster Safety Coalition Cameras and the water reading meters. Other than that, there has not been a word about them in months and months.
      The city has spent millions and millions of dollars on MAW and you are right – the public needs answers! And with this horrible ongoing health crisis, children in Lancaster need good internet service to do school work from home. What an absolute disaster!

NOT COVID-19!

     At 8:30 pm last night, an hour after the city council meeting began, city hall clerk Bernie Harris (pictured left) walked over to the livestreaming equipment, pushed a button and suddenly there was audio.
     I kid you not. Another livestream failure. And to be truthful, I did not feel good last night and I turned it off and went to bed (it is not COVID-!9!).
     I’m still not feeling up to par so please check back tomorrow.

UPDATE – * WILL THE CITY LIVESTREAM IT?

Posted in Convention Center, Lancaster Newspapers, Police, Racism, Unsolved Murders | 3 Comments

WHY HAS LNP BEEN SILENT?

—  Tonight’s city council meeting should be livestreamed on their YouTube channel (click here). I will come back to LNP and why they have never mentioned the city’s failure to adequately livestream their meetings for well over a year. Do they believe in transparency or do they want you to only get the news from them?
*

*    As council approved the expansion of the Lancaster County Convention Center at a meeting in October 2016, power cut out in council chambers and a video projector failed.
     Dastra said it confused the presentation on an already complicated issue, and to top it off, there was no audio-visual record.
     So he committed to getting involved, attending as many meetings as possible equipped with his iPhone 6 and a basic tripod. He put council in his sights and began livestreaming their public meetings on Facebook starting Feb. 14, 2017.
    …Dastra also declared himself an independent candidate for mayor last March, with a campaign centered around the concept of government transparency.
     “We all need to have faith in our government,” Dastra says. “But when things happen like the council blackout — the record destroyed, and it’s a controversial decision — it allows skepticism to creep in.”
From the February 2018 LNP article, “For the sake of transparency, former mayoral candidate Tony Dastra livestreams City Council, school board meetings,” (click here).    

WILL LNP COVER IT?

     Lancaster city council meets tonight with a long agenda (click here). Will LNP cover it? Will the city manage to livestream it?
