I guess this is "breaking", because all I have is this tweet from @JohnLuciew:
#gilberton council votes 4-1 to suspend chief #markkessler for 30 days no pay @pennliveBut our own Hunter retweeted it, so I think it's legit.
Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler is the wacko who recently was caught saying "F*** all you Libtards..." And I think, firing real guns as he ranted. Here, after the jump is a brief backstory on him from The Huffington Post:
A police chief in a small town in Pennsylvania is attracting controversy this week after posting a series of YouTube videos attacking people that disagree with his views on gun rights.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Mark Kessler, police chief of Gilberton Borough and a member of the North Schuylkill school board, caught the attention of viewers earlier this month with profanity-laced videos blasting "libtards" and Secretary of State John Kerry for supposedly wanting to take away his guns.
"Fuck all you libtards out there ... yous take it in the ass," he says in the video, posted in mid-July. "I don't give a fuck what you say, so you can all go fuck yourselves. Period."
Suspension confirmed by AP, 9:40pm ET:
GILBERTON, Pa. (AP) — An eastern Pennsylvania town police chief who appears in online videos using profanity and shooting automatic weapons has been suspended for 30 days without pay.http://bigstory.ap.org/...
The borough council of Gilberton in Schuylkill (SKOO'-kul) County decided at a meeting Wednesday night to suspend Chief Mark Kessler, saying he misused borough property. It says he used the weapons without permission.
Kessler says he made the videos to draw attention to the erosion of the constitutional rights of free speech and to bear arms.
