     I am doing some research this afternoon but the above left is LNP writing about themselves in the editorial, “Beware partisan websites masquerading as news sites. Newspapers such as LNP | LancasterOnline are far more reliable,” (click here).
     So, where the hell is watchdog LNP? Gasp – don’t tell me LNP lied again! There will be much more tomorrow.

3-30 UPDATE 

     Former police officer Brittany Porreca was apparently unhurt in January of 2020 when she was pictured twice on the police Facebook page with the horse Charlie on the day he was put down (see below).
Click here for the LNP article “Lancaster city police horse Charlie dies” and check back later today.

     What happened to former Lancaster City Police Officer Brittany Porreca? Something extremely serious occurred. Is the police department working to ensure that this does not happen to any other officer? 
     Please note #8 in the signed agreement below – “Non-disparagement.”

     The city’s response to my Right-to-Know request will come later today.

    Luckily, she can double dip and get SSDI.

    Clearly, she did not have a lawyer when she signed that.

    How about the fact that the police FB page has a photo of her taken by Shaki Staten, who later spent ten months in prison for nothing and settled his lawsuit against the city for a paltry 40,000.00. Sounds like somebody is trying to shut SOMEBODY up.

    Maybe she was emotionally traumatized by the death of the horse.

      If they can’t display the ‘stache, then they’re gonna have to to go back to tapping feet under bathroom stalls. And no one wants that.

    It would violate HIPAA to disclose.

    I’m sure if the young female officer had been injured in the line of duty it would have been reported. From the documents posted it would seem an injury received in the locker room would qualify the city employee to these benefits. A guy or 2 at my work site injured themselves at home, dragged themselves into work then laid down next to some ice.

    Just Saying

      This is interesting. Usually if a first responder is seriously injured on duty it ends up in the news. Normally it seems the actual first responders like to advertise when one is injured in the line of duty to reinforce the idea of blue lives matter.

      I suppose if the news didn’t catch it when it occurred now it is a hippa issue, but even construction accidents often make the news.

      I think this is a pretty interesting example that is walking the line between medical privacy and public’s right to know. I’d argue none of us care what her medical disability/injury is, but it’d be news to know if someone shot her, or beat her up, or if there was accident with a police cruiser while she was in uniform.

    The City appears to be handling this appropriately. I see no other way they can manage this situation.

    Non-disparagement clauses are common in separation agreements. Wouldn’t read anything into that.
