Suspended police chief releases new video

GILBERTON, Pa. - A controversial police chief from Schuylkill County is at it again.

Suspended Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler has released a new YouTube video.

In the video, Kessler holds up targets named "Eric" and "Danny."

Eric Boxer is vice president of Gilberton borough council and Daniel Malloy is president.

Borough council suspended Kessler for 30 days on July 31st for using department guns in prior YouTube clips.

In the video, Kessler goes on to describe "Eric" as a tyrant who threatens people.

Kessler then lets loose on the target with an assault rifle.

"Don't even give him a chance just light his (expletive) (expletive) right up," Kessler said in the video. "Kill him...I'm...sorry to say that all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Eric back together again."

Kessler has also posted a Facebook message that says Gilberton borough council is holding an alleged secret termination meeting Tuesday night.

Our attempts to reach Gilberton officials have been unsuccessful.
