Gilberton, Pennsylvania Police Chief Mark Kessler was suspended for 30 days, and says, during which time he will be terminated, although it’s not clear what that means from his Facebook post which he created by gnawing out letters with his teeth apparently. According to WFMZ, he was suspended without pay, and offered no apologies.
The vote was 5-2 (another source states the vote was 5-1) in favor of suspension and the council said it disciplined Kessler because the guns in the videos were owned by the borough and they were used without prior authorization.
Kessler claims his termination is led by various council members which was “ordered” by Mayor Mary Lou Hannon, which doesn’t make much sense since the Mayor stood by him after he videotaped his temper tantrums. Activists from both sides were in attendance. In support of Kessler, some carried ‘Impeach Obama’ or ‘Mark Kessler for President’ signs with multiple weapons to their side.
And right after the borough council meeting, during which Kessler was suspended without pay for 30 days on a 5-1 vote, there was an impromptu gun rights rally. Those bearing arms huddled in a circle and began chanting.
“When are they going to take your rights?” a man’s baritone voice boomed.
“Never!” vowed the crowd, in unison.
While his supporters may have seemed revved up, the actual townspeople voiced their opinion of Kessler.
Wade Greg Necker said, “He was way across the line. He’s a nut. I do not feel safe with him around at all.”
Gilberton resident Pete Kostingo addressed the council meeting,”He should have been fired. He used the position, and he abused the position.”
Another citizen, speaking at the meeting, called for the county district attorney to investigate Kessler and his actions.
Gregory Grove, another resident, said his wife lives in fear of the chief. “She’s afraid of him,” he told council. “Kessler is a detriment to this borough.”
No other source mentions his looming termination except for Kessler.

Obviously he wants supporters to call the “brough” office.
Call and counter all calls made by his supporters, if you so choose to. If a Democrat made such threats to an elected official or Republicans in general, we’d certainly do the right thing and call them out.

Still, there was no denying the adverse publicity and media scrutiny that the 700-resident borough has received since Kessler’s videos went viral last week.
“I think it’s a blackened our eye a little,” Hannon said. “But we are a strong community. I feel I am a strong leader, and we will go on from here.”
In Kessler’s videos, he displayed how to shoot Nancy Pelosi in the face, called Secretary of State John Kerry a ‘shit bag’, called ‘libtards’ vile scum in a town where 44.9% are registered Democrats.
In addition, Kessler wants an armed rebellion against the government that pays his salary.
