Police Chief Apologizes For Using profanity, says "F*K You" and Shoots an Assault Rifle


http://youtu.be/AQakPtOQCJo

GILBERTON, Pa. — Borough police Chief Mark Kessler offers some profanity-laced comments to viewers in a July 15 Internet posting.

The 2-minute, 45-second posting on the Internet site YouTube starts as an apology but quickly turns to profane language and the use of automatic weapons. The video was apparently recorded on a remote stripping road.

I ask you, what the hell does

I ask you, what the hell does he need to be held accountable for? Who has he wronged?

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

You Caught Me

Im a progressive troll who shared the video that this man posted himself on youtube to make him look like an idiot and ruin his career. Regardless if he is a liberty guy he still needs to be held accountable for his actions when he does something wrong. His behavior in the video is inappropriate and childish. calling people who disagree with him c*ck suckers,p*ssies and telling them to fuck off is inappropriate for a chief of police and posting it to the public is stupid.
Oh and I posted a link to the article on a POLICE website who if anyone would be more lenient on him. Good catch detective

Regardless if he is a liberty

Regardless if he is a liberty guy he still needs to be held accountable for his actions when he does something wrong.

He did nothing wrong, you may not LIKE what he did, but that doesn't make it wrong, illegal, or even unethical.

His behavior in the video is inappropriate and childish. calling people who disagree with him c*ck suckers,p*ssies and telling them to fuck off is inappropriate for a chief of police and posting it to the public is stupid.

That's an opinion. I say it's excellent, i like his opinion. If people want to elect him they have the right to do so. You have no right to interfere in that. He has done nothing to violate the NAP, or the law.

The only thing he did was ruffle your feathers because he said something you don't agree with or find politically correct. So what do you do, cry and want him to lose his job. Grow the fuck up.

Im a progressive troll

If you say so.

He does have a point...

I mean, what's really wrong here? He addressed a certain group of people who took issue with the "words" he chose to use in a previous video. For a site who proclaims to have the utmost respect for the 1st amendment, I would think there would be a little more understanding and less persecution considering the context. Sure he's a cop, one that doesn't come off as the brightest out of the bunch, I'll give you that. But, there was once a man who reminded the nation that we don't have the first amendment to talk about the weather. It's to protect the most controversial speech. I do believe this qualifies to some to be "controversial", to me it's just a guy blowing off steam. No victim, no crime.

What say you my fellow countrymen?! Onward!!! TO LIBERTY!!!

The 1st amendment allowed him

The 1st amendment allowed him to make this video, not to be free from reticule, and held to a higher standard when in a public position. I would work for removal, someone who can't show restraint should not be in a position of force.

Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts.

Really?

Just as it allowed your horrible misspelling of ridicule. Come on now, people are just people. Stop trying to hold them to some cookie cutter standard of what you think someone should be. Did he harm anyone? NO. Stop judging and persecuting him before he's done anything wrong. This is local interventionism. If he does something wrong, then punish him, not before. We do not live in the pre-crime era YET.

Haha, first person shooters

Haha, first person shooters have ruined my spelling.

I don't think it's a "cookie cutter standard", he is referencing a group of people and then implying they watch as he tears through bullets. This is threatening to someone who may live in his jurisdiction and shows a lack of restraint.

He is not guilty of a pre-crime, but a lack of professional conduct. Which calls into question his ability to carry out his job without prejudice.

By that standard everyone is incapable

of doing their jobs without prejudice. People should be allowed to express their political views openly, especially public servants. Calling for him to lose his job because he was expressing his views while shooting guns is outrageous.

I find golf to be an elitist sport, so we should fire anyone who does a video of themselves playing golf too. They're expressing they are better than me and that is unprofessional.

Who paid for all the ammo this idiot shot?

Me thinks he`s a loose nut.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

The video literally made me

The video literally made me LOL! At the same time, it made me wonder how much "manning the F up" this guy would do without his guns and badge? Comes across as way to insecure to be in his position IMO. Could be all in fun for all I know...

What an Oaf

I'm not disagreeing that people are too sensitive about cursing and all that kind of stuff. But this is absolutely not the characteristic that I'd want in a police officer. I want them to be of the "with great power comes great responsibility" mindset. This guy's mindset seems to be "I'm a big shot (literally) with a gun and I'll mouth off to whoever I want over anything I want". Even if I agree that America has become "wussified" in many ways, this jerk isn't "a man" either. He's got the mentality of a teenage boy with something to prove.

UPDATE:
From his website, he seems very much a pro-liberty guy. Go figure! Even so, I don't like the way he acted here at all. Again, I want him to treat firearms as defensive weapons only to be pulled out when the situation truly calls for it.

if you follow this youtube video the chief's youtube channel

has favorites criticizing government drone programs and many more... he is not a guy who is against the people.. at least apparently

If a private citizen

sent a message like that to the "libtards" I am pretty sure this police chief would organize a swat raid against them.

Was this a death threat? Hard to say based on the context.

See something? Say something?

Hmmm.

100%

freedom of speech, not in uniform, personal firearm.

1st amendment and 2nd amendment on display, cool automatic weapon, lucky for him to own one.

What sucks, is under Obummer, if he was in the military, on his own time, he couldn't even eat Chick Filet.

Personal firearm?

There are no, ZERO, NONE, legal pre-1986 cutoff date registered legal for civilian transfer fully-automatic Glock pistols. That is a department weapon.

Could you elaborate on why

Could you elaborate on why this is? I don't understand all the distinctions about what is legally transferable. Thanks.

In mid-May of 1986

an amendment to the Firearms Owner Protection Act, which Reagan signed as it was overall very positive in restoring firearms rights, changed the federal laws pertaining to fully automatic firearms. Anything made after that time, if fully automatic, could not be legally owned by a non-military or police agency. This has created an artificial shortage of machine guns in the USA and caused the price of an M16, for example, to decouple from the price of an AR15. They used to be within a few dollars of one another.

A new AR15 can be purchased for $1,000 or less. The newest M16 you can legally buy is 27 years old and currently sells for more than $20,0000. That's not a typo.

So you meant to write

So you meant to write post-1986 in the above comment?

You can buy (have transferred) a fully automatic pistol made in say 1985 in most states right without being LEO or military?

Any Full autos

made post May 1986 are non transferable in the US. Unless you live in a state that has nullified that law. That law was signed by Reagan btw.

Regardless

I'd have one if I could. Fuck those unconstitutional laws.

Conduct Unbecoming a Police Officer

applies to on or off duty conduct.
He identifies himself as Chief Kessler making it publicly known he is a police chief and therefore acting as a representative of the department or in an official capacity.

I Didn't Post This With The Intention Of Being

the political correctness police or because he shoots guns. I thought his Go F*** yourself attitude and his child like behavior is inappropriate for someone to be publicly broadcasting who is a "leader" and a "public servant". This reflexes poorly on the department and the city which he serves. This should not be the mentality of any police officer.

And you are correct

Only a boy with tiny pink balls would find it necessary to act tough on a video. The boy has the emotions and intellect of a 10 year old.

Loved the guns, not so sure

Loved the guns, not so sure of the "officer". Yeah, I can take some "f*ck you's" and I can even give some. But this attitude from someone who leads a whole crew of armed goons just makes me wonder what kind of terrible crime (like speaking one's mind) would cause him or his goons to throw one of the "citizens" to the ground and stomp on their neck? I suspect it would not take much to elicit such behavior from this kind of "officer"...

How come he gets to have all the cool toys?

Was he using his own arsenal or were those firearms property of his police department? If he is able to afford the cost and licensing for all those fully automatic weapons as well as the ammunition to feed them, I should look into becoming a police chief. Seems lucrative.
