Gun-Firing PA Police Chief Kessler Suspended, Predicts His Firing


The gun-firing, obscenity-shouting Pennsylvania police chief whose online videos have had nearly a million views predicts that he will soon be fired from his decade-long tenure as the town's top cop, reports the Los Angeles Times. “Did I make some questionable videos? Sure,” Chief Mark Kessler said. “But all I did was speak and express my Second Amendment rights. It was just me, my tiny camera, and a pile of dirt.”

Kessler was suspended by the Gilberton Borough Council in August for the unauthorized firing of borough-owned automatic weapons on the YouTube videos in which he derides liberals and promotes gun rights while going off on profanity-laced rants. His attorney said a disciplinary hearing will be held soon. The chief’s videos and the subsequent controversy over his employment have galvanized both sides of the gun-control debate. Advocates of 2nd Amendment rights, among others, have voiced support for Kessler.
