This guy was right to get out in front of the public when he did. Speaking slots for the 2016 GOP Convention are filling up fast

He won't lose his job.  The entire town agrees with him and supports him.

What? a cop who hates gays, minorities and especially Obama? Never happens.

It's amusing that an organization of nutcases that is characterized by pseudonymous membership disavowed him.
 
2013-07-29 05:31:07 PM
He's a very angry man, he has a badge, and he has a gun.

He needs to get rid of at least one of those things.

Elias Alias, who sits on the Oath Keeper's board of directors, said in an email to Salon.

That's like the Groucho nose and glasses of fake names.

That's nothing: Chief Mark Kessler, Kerry & UN , can SUCK IT

If someone like this guy can be police chief, can you imagine what the regular police officers are becoming, just because they can't handle having a black president?

Wow, this guy is farking insane.

Unfortunately he's probably not the biggest asshole in his town.

If Oath Keepers is saying you're crazy, you're crazy. Somebody should check this guy for a brain tumor or something.

Angry guy with a gun isn't a good combo either.

Cause it's an ongoing investigation that will end up in civil courts eventually? And he doesn't want to add a couple of million to the settlement?

Yeah, stupid lazy, liberal, union member government employee getting all his paid vacations and health care from the tax payers teet.

Wait, what?
 
2013-07-29 06:48:54 PM
Wait, wait, wait.

People use "libtards" in actual conversation, as a serious, deadpan insult?

Woah.

Also not an ideal candidate for leader of the sheriff's office, but he is not all bad.

/To paraphrase, he is asking some of the new recruits to take it down a notch.

That idiot probably makes fun of Obama's TelePrompTer.

Sounds like rural Pennsylvania.
Last time I was there a kid was telling the cashier at the general store how he gave up chewing tobacco because it made his "nymph glands swole up"

I'm hoping it's Pocket Ninja, so we can all laugh it off with a sigh of relief as satire.
 
2013-07-29 06:51:30 PM
Maybe so.

But you know what else I am, Chief?

Still employable.

He went full Republican. You never go full Republican.

Really? I was hoping someone would get rid of the "man" part. Snipsnip.


Article: The chief is also a member of the North Schuylkill school board, which released a statement Friday saying that it doesn't "condone or agree" with Kessler, but has little power to remove any of its members.

'S yer problem right thar.

What does a Teabagger do when they lose their jobs because they just wouldn't stop shooting off their big mouth? The elite ones end up getting hired by Fox News of course so they're safe, but the rank-n-file Teanderthals are pretty much S.O.L. since they regard things like unemployment and SNAP as "socialism!".

Gilberton Pennsylvania is so small of a town, Wikipedia has yet to put the 2010 census statistics on the page.
 
2013-07-29 06:56:19 PM
Two things: Isn't he, like, the ENTIRE police department for that town? As in, he's the Sheriff because he's the only one? And Gilberton is only 15 minutes away from Centralia, PA. You know, the town that's had an underground coal fire that just celebrated it's 50th birthday? There's something in the air, I think.

Most elected bodies can't dump a member. This is a good thing.  They can censure, but the only way to get him off the school board would be a recall election.

No no.  Unemployment is OK because "I paid into that".  Just don't let the neighbors catch you having a functional refrigerator.

There is no problem with his idiotic opinions.  If he can separate his opinions from his job then fine.  The question I have is this: does he bring his opinions in on the job.  Is he pulling and harassing people with Obama stickers on his/her car?  Is he throwing people in jail because they have long hair or listening to the "wrong" music?  Is he profiling people out the ass?  Conversely, is he treating "Good 'Mericans" with leniency?  If he can't separate his opinions from the job then he should go.

Having seen dozens of cops here in Indiana only half this bad I would be greatly surprised if is capable of doing that.
 
2013-07-29 06:59:09 PM
Seems like guy and ol' Sheriff Joe from Arizona would be real buds.

And they can always count on senile, paranoid old people pining for "the good old days" for support.

People need to understand something:

1. Gilberton has less than 1000 people living in it, so the police force consists most likely of chief wacko and maybe one or two reserve officers.  In the law enforcement world, departments like this is where the rejects go.  Most larger departments have certain filters in their hiring process that precludes idiots like him from working there.  True once in a while someone slips through but by the by most are people you would want to carry a badge and gun.  In fact I know private security who act in a much more professional manner than this guy.  I would honestly be surprised if this guy made over $40,000 a year which is miniscule for a police chief.

2. Most police officers are rather private, most don't openly put their opinions on you tube, facebook, twitter, or any other such nonsense because they have the common sense (and training) that anything they post online can later be used in a federal lawsuit to discredit them.  They certainly don't express their personal opinions on duty, ultimately your on duty opinions equal federal law and your departments policies and directives.

3. Police officers are much like the rest of the public in their political preferences, yes because of their intimate knowledge of the criminal world and the aftermath of crimes, they are often right leaning because of the republican party's stronger stance on punishment.  On the other hand most departments more than 50 officers have a union and thus they are sensitive to the rhetoric of "unions have to go" mentality.  So while there are staunch republicans, there are also staunch democrats, but most cops fall somewhere in the middle depending on the issue.

I used to live in a town in Jersey where the chief of police held seminars about the terrorist threat to America, while purporting to be a terrorism "expert", even though he spend his entire working career as municipal cop in a town with a population of 5K people.

LULZ!!!! You've obviously never met an unemployed teabagger. They take every handout they can get "To starve the beast." I shiat you not.

No... They only view those things as "socialism" when OTHER people utilize those methods of public assistance. If they utilize any of those they're just getting what they're 'owed' anyway.
