Gilberton, Pa. (AP) — A small-town Pennsylvania police chief's profanity-laced Internet tirades about the Second Amendment and liberals have earned him a measure of notoriety — and now, his bosses intend, a pink slip.
Glberton Borough Council members say they plan to fire Mark Kessler, nearly two months after voting to suspend the only full-time member of the town's police force.
Kessler posted videos of himself shooting borough-owned automatic weapons and cursing liberals and others who he said want to erode the constitutional right to bear arms.
He says the council's decision Thursday night was "no surprise" in light of the incendiary videos. Kessler and his attorney plan to fight the council's decision.
