(Gilberton) -- A Schuylkill County police chief who posted online videos of himself shooting automatic weapons while screaming profanities about liberals and the Second Amendment gets a chance to argue for his job tonight.
Gilberton Borough Council has already voted to fire Chief Mark Kessler. Due process rules entitle him to a public hearing at which his attorney and the town can call witnesses.
Council would then have to vote a second time.
Kessler says his much-watched videos are intended to draw attention to the erosion of Constitutional rights.
The former coal miner has spoken at gun rights rallies around the country.
Council members voted to fire Kessler after a closed-door disciplinary hearing that dwelled on allegations unrelated to the videos.
