That is not just in Williamsport Francine. That happens in a lot of places and I might add with different professions.

This entire "story" is very reflective of Kontz the 2nd and Foresman... not only in their personal lives (which have spillage everywhere) but, now exposed from behind the badge. The Mayor appears clueless... How could someone in his shoes be so nieve...time and time again? «•¿•» one bad move after another, this man...

CMReeder is right... ignorance is bliss

The people of Williamsport are losing faith in the police. Without the people's confidence that the police are acting on behalf of the people, their effectiveness is diminished and people worry that they, one day, will be caught on the wrong side of a vindictive, petty, corrupt and capricious gang of self-serving thugs. The mayor, by aligning himself with these criminals, is bringing this same mistrust upon himself. It's time for a sweeping change.

"The mayor...is bringing this same mistrust upon himself."

That came about a long time ago; well before this incident came about.

Yes, Chuck, you are correct. It does happen elsewhere and it is disturbing when those in power, be they police or politicians, abuse that power for personal gain or because they think themselves above the law. I know many good cops and they are mostly silent on subjects like this not because they agree with it, but because I think they need to make sure if they are ever in a situation that requires the full assistance of a fellow officer that the fellow officer will do all they can for them. It is kind of a tough spot for the good guys.

Excellent letter Mr. Zicolello.

"So, the cops investigated the cop, and the cops determined that the cop did nothing wrong?!

Yep. Not surprised.

I think its funny that a City of Williamsport Police officer, whom was caught on duty having relations in the back seat of his patrol car with a woman not his wife back in the early 1990s, was later able to become Chief of Police. I remember reading about it in the SunGazette back then. With leadership like that, no wonder you have a few bad apples on the Williamsport Police department making the rest look bad.

I am at a loss and cannot even find the words to describe the actions of the police chief and the mayor. These guys are delusional! Their actions, at the least, are totally inappropriate and should be addressed further. Who does things like this and gets away with it??
