(Gilberton) -- The police chief of a small Schuylkill County's community who's trying to organize a non-government armed group has stirred up a furor after he posted videos of himself in confrontational, profanity-laced tirades punctuated by him firing off automatic weapons.
But, Gilberton Police Chief Mark Kessler says he's a good-hearted man who loves his country. He makes no apologies for posting online videos that boast confrontational, profanity-laced tirades punctuated by his firing of automatic weapons. The chief adds he doesn't regret posting the videos.
At one point, he screams, "come and get it!" His group is called the "Constitutional Security Force."
He says, "Some people are just trying to make a mountain out of a molehill."
Gilberton Mayor Mary Lou Hannon says she finds the videos offensive, but supports Kessler's continued employment.
