If he has all that money, why is he asking for donations in the first place? A case of water is only $2.98! And as for Jerry asking Michelle where she was yesterday, Michelle should ask Jerry where he is for the rest of the year after he does his one week of water and freeze pops.
Jerry Puryear of “Staywoke717” has posted this money pile, which he supposedly has laying around, to “prove” that he is not using donations for the homeless for himself. This is incredibly stupid on so many levels. I wonder if he’s paying taxes on all of that money?
FIGHTING OVER THE HOMELESS?
Posted today on the “Micky’s Mission of Hope” Facebook page which she runs to help the homeless (click here).
She is referring to Jerry Puryear and his Facebook page “Staywoke717.” Well, Jerry is going nuts over this because he has been asking for money and suddenly taking water and ice pops to Binn’s Park for the homeless for the last few days. He also videotapes himself handing out the water and pops and claims repeatedly that this is the “real Jerry.” He also believes she has called the police on him.
I have some thoughts on this that will be coming…
* The police press release on last night’s double shooting (click here):
On Monday July 6, 2020 at approximately 2106 hrs. Officers from Lancaster Bureau of Police, Platoon B, received calls of shots fired. Multiple calls were received and the locations were given as possibly the 500 blk. W. King St. and that immediate vicinity.
One of the first arriving pair of Officers located a victim near the 500 blk. Lake St. at Coral St. The victim is a 17 year old female resident of Lancaster City. The victim had a single gun shot wound to her leg. Officers provided first aid to the victim until EMS arrived to transport her to the hospital for further treatment. The victim is expected to survive her injury.
Officers were alerted to the location of a 2nd victim on the 1st blk. Ruby St. The 2nd victim is a 19 year old male resident of Lancaster City. That victim had a graze wound from a bullet on his lower leg. The 2nd victim was also transported to the hospital for treatment and is expected to survive his injury.
Officers canvassed the area for additional victims, suspect information, evidence, witnesses and surveillance video locations. Spent shell casings were located in the area. Those items were collected as evidence.
Officers and Detectives continue to investigate the circumstances of the incident as well as any factors that led up to the shooting. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the Lancaster Bureau of Police at 717-735-3301 or Lancaster Crime Stoppers at (800) 322-1913, or you can anonymously Text a Tip to Crime Stoppers by using your cell phone. Text LANCS plus your message to 847411. Callers may remain anonymous and do not have to give their names.
WORK ON THEIR TECHNOLOGY!
Yes, there were audio problems with last night’s city council committee meeting. Chris Courogen, who is in the comments above, covers these meetings for LNP. Who is this man? And yes, there was something about LGH and more condos.
Lancaster City Council has a committee meeting tonight beginning at 6:00 pm. The virtual meeting should be live-streamed on their YouTube channel (click here).
What is a “reported essay?” I googled it but I’m still not sure. This “reported essay” by LNP reporter Jeff Hawkes was the lead story on the front page of this week’s Sunday News (click here). I have some problems with this and Hawkes and that will come later…
BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE?
From the LNP article, “Father, son charged in Ephrata Township shooting that sent 4 to hospital: DA’s office,” (click here).
How and why would they be able to post bail? The 20-year-old son shot four men and is charged with 18 first degree felonies. His father is charged with 12 first degree felonies. Why would anyone assume they could or should be able to post bail? Because they are white?
*** BREAKING NEWS ***– A commenter to this site just alerted us to a lawsuit involving Covid-19 that was filed against Lancaster attorney Wendy Chan (click here for the lawsuit on the Prothonotary’s Office). Wow – he and his wife had just moved from Colorado so he could work for Chan! Thank you very much to the commenter!
[Editor’s Note: To the person who would like me to publish the full lawsuit – I have a new computer. Can someone tell me how to take screenshots with Chrome?]
YOU’RE BEING PLAYED?
I spent several minutes this morning trying to find a stock Fourth of July photo without fireworks in it. It’s not because I think there’s a government conspiracy to keep us sleep deprived – no, it’s because they have been such an annoyance this year. In Philly our local representative got Target and multiple grocery stores (ShopRite, ACME) to pull fireworks from their shelves. Government conspiracy foiled!
I don’t think fireworks are a government conspiracy but this might be – my local dollar store is out of fly swatters! Horrors! The government wants to keep me constantly hyper, angry and frustrated with these flies by denying me a basic swatter! Maybe Harper and Sarah Justice could look into that!
*** From the Columbia Journalism Review, “How the term ‘false flag’ migrated to the right,” (click here).
** What is a”false flag”:
Well, personal injury attorney Mark McCloskey seems to be real and enjoying his 15 minutes (click here for the Washington Post article and video below).
TRUMP IN A NOOSE?
Matthew Allen Grab’s mugshot on CrimeWatch (click here). I wonder why LNP didn’t include this photo in their story today, “Man sues Columbia police, parole agent claiming excessive force used,” (click here).
And the latest from washed-up watchdog Ron Harper, Jr. is below. Has he lost his mind? And before this he called out a story as a “classic false flag.” What does that expression mean and who is responsible for this “false flag” and what do they have to gain?
On June 18th, Judge Jeffrey Conrad gave full custody of his daughter to Lancaster Police Officer Jonathan Caple and gave the mother one hour of supervised visitation a week. Her statement posted on her Facebook page is below.
Once again, why is this man a police officer? He held his service revolver to the mother’s head and threatened to kill her several years ago. She has recordings of him screaming and threatening her.
Judge Conrad needs to recuse himself immediately – or better yet, resign!
* OMG! The last thing I want to listen to is Ron Harper, Jr. talking about rape. And as noted by him, there is already an active organization working on the backlog (click here).
Apparently Harper thinks a man talking about rape will wake people up and shock them. In this case, he is just revolting.
It is a huge day for national news so LIP News is going national this afternoon:
Thank you, Supreme Court! Thank you!
And the other story is simply shocking. President Trump retweeted a video of a supporter yelling “White Power” this morning. I hope he lost every Black and Brown voter and every decent human’s vote with that tweet.
Anthony Quinn Gomex, Jr., 29, (above left) was shot and killed by the Lancaster City Police in May of 2015. Jose Efrain Rodriquez, 18, (above right) was shot and killed by the Lancaster City Police in January of 2017.
The names of the officers involved have never been released to the public.
Gee, LNP opinion editor Suzanne Cassidy, maybe the Biden campaign knows that LNP is a joke and a lie as a news organization. After all, there is a damning book about you by a former County Commissioner that exposes your unethical and illegal actions for years – “Pressed” (click here for the book on Amazon).
And the beginning of this editorial talks about the police and demanding transparency (click here). And yet, LNP has not demanded the names of the officers who killed two people in Lancaster in the last few years including an 18-year-old the police followed for several minutes and then executed.
And LNP has not demanded to know who shot and killed Tony Torrellas in April of 2019.
LNP is an absolute disgrace to journalism and apparently the Biden campaign knows it!
* City Councilwoman Janet Diaz is running against Scott Martin for the PA State Senate seat in District 13 (click here for her Facebook page). She will be in Columbia this afternoon.
WHERE IS LNP’S CODE OF ETHICS?
UPDATED 6-25-2020 – Click here for the full “Elements of Journalism.” LNP breaks every one of these every day and the public needs to know!
LNP: PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS!
LNP reporters Sam Janesch and Gillian McGoldrick and below their front page article on Bryan Cutler today.
For the second day in a row, Representative Bryan Cutler was on the front page of LNP’s print edition (click here).
The reporters on this story, Sam Janesch and Gillian McGoldrick, were not employed by LNP when LNP lied to the public and did a huge cover-up for Cutler. That’s right – your “community newspaper” and “watchdog” flat-out lied to the public to “protect” Cutler.
I wonder how much longer LNP will be able to hire reporters. Who will be willing to work for them? Who wants to have their reputations ruined?
There is the shocking book “Pressed” by former Commissioner Molly Henderson that tells the truth about LNP and the convention center/Marriott Hotel (click here for it on Amazon). With the release of that book, LNP owner Beverly Steinman should have apologized profusely to the public and sold the newspaper. The State Attorney General’s Office should be reviewing the CRIZ and bringing charges against LNP.
You think this is an over-reaction? No, it’s not! Read the book! Newspapers and the media are supposed to protect the public. Instead, the racist Steinman family used their newspaper(s) power to make vast amounts of money through corruption like the Marriott Hotel and to protect the rich and powerful who could funnel them money – like Cutler – and to keep the county white.
There needs to be another book about LNP. A book that details how they unbelievably protected Cutler and former DA and now Judge – Craig Stedman – and former defense attorney and now Judge – Jeffrey Conrad. Oh, and there’s a lot more!
I have been stating for years on this site that the corruption in Lancaster County is simply astounding and it is led by the Lancaster Newspapers. And the public needs to be informed of that as soon as possible! And LNP needs to be put out of business and the Steinman family run out of town!
A Facebook response to Representative Bryan Cutler becoming Speaker.
From today’s LNP article, “Lancaster Republican Bryan Cutler elected Speaker of Pa. House,” (click here).
Yes, with the help of Beverly Steinman and her Lancaster Newspapers he rose very fast. Not only did Steinman contribute money to his campaigns, the newspaper also covered for him in one of the most tragic and awful cases in Lancaster County. This is also why former DA Craig Stedman and former defense attorney Jeffrey Conrad should never be judges!
And LNP has the nerve to claim they adhere to ethics!
The original of the below is here and there will be more tomorrow.
Has this happened to you? I innocently went on Facebook this morning and to my horror I found what appears to be the beginning of a new relationship. Don’t do it girl! Do you know how many failed relationships/marriages he’s had?
What would attract a smart, talented pretty young woman to an older, grizzled unattractive a$$hole who’s been around the block way too many times?
Will someone warn her? Should someone warn her? Is it too late?
I believe that every article that has been in LNP that states that Lancaster County Judge candidate Jeffrey Conrad was rated “not recommended” by the Lancaster Bar has been an “insider” story and that is not acceptable. This is vital information the public absolutely needs to know. See the two “insider” stories below and there will be more on this shortly. From a post on this site on March 8, 2017 (click here). How does an attorney who is “not recommended” by his peers become a judge in Lancaster County? LNP, that’s how. There will be more tomorrow including the two cases that absolutely should have kept him off the bench.
HARPER MAKES ME SICK!
Yes, Harper, Wolf can do it with the stroke of a pen as can the Mayor of Philadelphia. Apparently you haven’t learned anything in your 56 years except how to grow a huge ego.
Pandering politics? Have you lost your mind? Get lost, Harper! You are one sick, disgusting man!
“DON’T TAKE MY FREEDOM! I DON’T CARE IF I GET COVID-19!”
It is being reported that Ron Harper, Jr. saw the PennLive article below and went full-on ballistic (click here). “The governor can’t tell me what to do,” he screamed. “This is unconstitutional and ruining my life! I will not wear a mask! Wolf’s a monster! And that little God Fauci – I’ll kick his butt! I know more than he does! I want my freedom back!”
Please check back tomorrow for this rapidly developing story!
ETHICAL REPORTING BY LNP?
In response to a question into this site, this is the officer from Baltimore. The below article was preceded by ‘THE LAST MAN LANCASTER NEEDS!” a few days before on this site (click here for that post and click here for the original of the below). The LNP story is here. There will be more tomorrow.
WHAT ABOUT SADLER?
From today’s LNP story by Dan Nephin, “DA Adams joins state attorney general coalition supporting police reform,” (click here).
What about former Lancaster Police Chief Keith Sadler, Dan?
Please check back later today for more on Sadler – and Doug Thomas only raises $300 in his GoFundMe with a $25,000 goal (see yesterday’s post) and in a related story, washed-up watchdog Ron Harper, Jr. is suddenly an expert on Covid-19! Who knew?
The group states, “Officers who engage in misconduct or use excessive force erode trust in law enforcement and make it harder for our communities to be and feel safe. When they leave an agency, or retire in lieu of termination, that record needs to go with them. We stand united in calling for reform of the hiring process so that law enforcement agencies have the information to make informed decisions about the personnel they hire.”
From the CrimeWatch page linked to by the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office (click here).
Wait until it is public knowledge that former Lancaster City Police Chief Keith Sadler is an accused woman beater in a book written by his ex-wife. And LNP never told the public because of their Marriott Hotel. You thought you could get away with that Steinman Communications President Robert Krasne, LNP Managing Editor Tom Murse and LNP Opinion Editor Suzanne Cassidy? Is that what you thought?
Oh, no, that’s not the way it is going to play out!
Click here for the LNP article and here for the GoFundMe account.
I’ll pass on the GoFundMe, thank you. Wearing a mask is not fun but according to the experts it is necessary. And $25,000? Some lawyer is going to be very happy! And how will he refund any possible “leftover”money? Hmmm…
Does Jorgensen still work for WGAL? It’s unheard of for a news outlet to bow to police pressure to pull a story. Are you sure about that?
Part of a comment into this site today.
Yes, I’m sure. She had to explain to the four women why the piece never aired. She told them it was pressure from the police – threats to deny them access and for the chief or others on the force to refuse to go on camera with WGAL. WGAL folded.
This comment just in:
She’s still around. Ask her outright.
Okay. I will try.
THE HIGHEST LEVELS!
From a post on this site on October 27, 2017 (click here).
Screenshots from today’s LNP article (click here).
No, according to his docket, District Judge Nancy Hamill set his bail at 10%of $20,000! So he only needed $2,000 to walk free and it was posted by someone with the same last name. There will be more tomorrow.
A VERY IMPORTANT MEETING
** City council met virturally last night and there were several phone calls to them for public comment about the police (click here). The audio was very low and I could not understand it. There was a delay in them posting it this morning so maybe they fixed it or I will try headphones and report on the meeting shortly. Where is LNP’s coverage?
*I have written about this abomination of justice many times before. Akeem Washington should be freed immediately and several Lancaster Police Officers should be in jail.
IT’S ALL A CONSPIRACY!
Posted by Ronald Harper, Jr. on his Facebook page in late May.
Yes, I recently had triple heart bypass surgery but wearing a face mask is just too much. I need to live and enjoy my life and I can’t do that wearing a mask across my mouth and nose when in public! I need to live my life and that does not include a mask for two months!
Posted recently by Ron Harper, Jr. on his Facebook page.
** What was named after your relatives – the road or the Post Office? The Post Office doesn’t seem to have a separate “name.” What relative is what named after and what is your relative’s name? I call absolute B.S. on this and and your entire mask story.
* Off topic but important:
A claim that a healthy 19-year-old grocery store worker was hospitalized for pleurisy, an inflammation of the tissue surrounding the lungs, due to her breathing in carbon dioxide and “her own bacteria” as a result of wearing a face mask, went viral on Facebook at the end of May 2020. Within just a few days after some of the earliest posts, dated 28 May 2020, more than 400 posts containing this claim have appeared on Facebook, with more than 31,000 interactions.
From “Facebook posts spread unsupported anonymous claim that face mask use caused a lung infection in a healthy teenager,” (click here).
This story is on Ron Haper’s Facebook page. Since he likes “FACTS,” he should delete it immediately instead of posting that she should be getting workman’s compensation! He should be ashamed of spreading absolutely false information.
WHERE IS LNP?
From today’s LNP article, “Lancaster County Public Defenders show support for Black Lives Matter movement,” (click here).
So, why hasn’t LNP reported on this? As reported here, all you have to do is walk into the Lancaster County Courthouse to see the blatant discrimination going on. It has to stop.
Former Assistant District Attorney Randall Miller moonlighted and worked part time for TW Ponessa & Associates as their legal counsel. Joy O’Shea Woomer’s daughter went there because of the stress of her mother being arrested and charged with murder. And her daughter unknowingly had to see and interact with the man who was going to prosecute her mother.
This conflict of interest should have never been allowed. LNP never mentioned it while it was “breaking news” on this site. Randall Miller was recently elected as a District Judge in Elizabethtown replacing Jayne Duncan who suddenly and mysteriously resigned.
And in the picture right after the verdict above, in the background is now deceased Lancaster County Detective Joseph Geesey. I consider him to have been one of the most corrupt and dishonest detectives in Lancaster’s history. And this case was no different.
To be continued…
* I often think about former nurse Joy Woomer. Charged 7 years after the fact, convicted by a jury on the flimsiest of evidence (& motive) and the perjured testimony of her vindictive ex husband and lopsided in limine rulings that almost seemed designed to torpedo her case. She has served her minimum as a model prisoner, but last I heard, her petition for parole was denied. Stedman probably opposed it. She is NOT a threat to society but if she speaks out publicly after release, she is a threat to his political career. I don’t know anyone, jurors included, who know the true story of what happened to that little boy. I do know his parents rec’d a hefty out-of-court settlement from Bayada Nurses which would probably not have occurred without a conviction. My heart breaks for her and I pray she has been released, but I have no idea…..
This comment in last week under “AND NOW HE’S A JUDGE!” below on this site.
THE PROSECUTOR WORKED THERE PART TIME!
Whenever I hear the name “TW Ponessa & Associates,” I think of Joy O’Shea Woomer. Below is her attorney, Chris Pattrerson, immediately after the jury’s verdict. There is so much LNP never told the public about this case.
