Police chief who posted gun video suspended

An eastern Pennsylvania police chief who went on a profanity-laced video rant against those who disagreed with him on gun laws has been suspended for 30 days without pay.

The punishment wasn't for his diatribe though.

The borough council in the coal town of Gilberton said that police Chief Mark Kessler used "burough property for non-burough purposes without permission" when he made the video where he's seen shooting semiautomatic and automatic weapons.

    A perfect spokesman for the NRA. Pure filth. Police Chief? really? What idiot hired this guy. Hope this town can run this guy out of town. Cops arrest people that use that kind of language in my neighborhood.

    In PA if you are a policeman you cannot, by law, be a member of the school board. Typical PA abuse.
