I was accused of using “scare tactics” by borough councilperson Patti Lawson for stating that the community’s safety is at stake regarding decisions that may loom in the future for the Borough of Gettysburg and leadership of its police department.

Hmmm, let’s see…a convicted murderer with past drug arrests on his record crashes his car and destroys two buildings in the Borough of Gettysburg in the middle of the night on a leisurely drive up here from Baltimore….a shooting and robbery takes place on a main street in the borough in front of the home and business of the borough council president…nearly $10,000 in merchandise is stolen from a long-time business right on the Square in Gettysburg and Lawson states I am using “scare tactics.”
