Pennsylvania Police Chief Mark Kessler Is A Loudmouth Douchebag

This is what happens when a bro gets old:

That was the initial video that sparked controversy.

Here are a couple more firearm related videos from him, including a non-apology for the first video:

My-New-Haircut-broski-yaegerYou can read more about the videos over at Gawker.

Real classy guy as you can see.  That is the exact type of person I wouldn’t be able to spend more than 30 seconds around without needing to leave the area.  I’m jealous of those NFA items though, especially that drop in auto conversion for the Glock.

Yeah.?.?.?…Another overbearing douchebag LEO. Color me shocked.

David July 26, 2013 at 04:25 am

Yeah, because there is shortage of foul mouthed linguistic masters like this guy.

Gilberton is a total shithole of a place and this guy is the lowest paid full time cop in PA. He’s been on the job for more than a decade and makes a whopping $24k/yr.

Willl737 July 28, 2013 at 06:38 am

So what you’re saying is that you really like cops that in the pretend world of YouTube make “MAN”ly videos, but in real life they shoot themselves in the hand and allow unarmed civilians to take their gun.

He can hang with me anytime, cool toys or not.
My kind of guy. FUCK the enemies of America.

carl May 19, 2014 at 11:04 am

Dude, HE is an enemy of america. What don’t you get?

Quint Young July 25, 2013 at 06:26 am

Seems like he dosent have much of a vocabulary. However that little AK (is that a converted draco?) is the coolest little nfa item I’ve seen in a long time.

Dale Smith July 25, 2013 at 07:13 am

Yeaaaah, I’m going to go with WAAAAYYYYY too many pussies in this world that don’t really know fuck-all. I would imagine they think most of our soldiers are loudmouth douchebags, too. Granted, I could do without the excessive F-bombs, but I totally agree. So… to add to the excessive F-bombs, and to echo Mr. Kessler, Fuck You and Fuck them.

Taylor TX July 25, 2013 at 07:19 am

Any video starting using the word libtard, is probably ok with me ha. Yea he could improve on the delivery, but the message is spot on.

Kevin July 25, 2013 at 07:25 am

While maybe you need more class and dignity when going about this opinion, I sure as fuck agree with him. Obviously we at this point need to look sane in our opinions, but what’s it worth? They’re going to push to take our rights anyway?

But yeah this guy is a nuts douche regardless of how much I agree with him.

Mitch July 25, 2013 at 08:57 am

Who the hell elected him? I thought Pennsylvania was pretty damn liberal. I don’t even understand what he was mad about.

PJ July 25, 2013 at 09:11 am

While I’m not an expert on Pennsylvania state and local politics I’d imagine they’re like most other states that have conservative rural areas and liberal urban areas. People always associate the Northeast with Bloomberg followers and Jersey Shore types but there’s a lot of rednecks in the more rural places. Most of Pennsylvania is part of Appalachia.

Gregory Markle July 25, 2013 at 07:29 pm

As James Carville noted, “Pennsylvania is Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between.”

The last video posted here (about Kerry and the UN) was pretty much the start of the issue from what I saw locally, unfortunately the comments have been removed. Basically he pissed off a bunch of people with that particular video and then upped the ante. While I agree with his stance, I think he’s kind of a dick with the way he’s dealing with the situation.

Mark’s beat is in Gilberton which is about 20 miles from where I live about 60 miles northeast of Harrisburg and liberal is NOT a term I would use for the general political sense in this area. The area I live in is known for having “hosted” a few members of the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War due to widespread sympathies for the Confederacy and seeing rebel flags on vehicles around here is not unusual. We have three small Type 7 manufacturers and three other Class III dealers along with the usual gun shops, a Wal-Mart, and Dunhams Sports selling firearms in an area with less than 50,000 residents, we run monthly full auto subgun shoots half the year and two machine gun shoots, and the Pennsylvania State Sportsmen’s Association trap shoot is held about 15 miles from where I live every year. We have a pretty decent gun show at the fairgrounds several times per year and our fair, which is still largely an agricultural event, is the largest held in PA even besting one held in much larger Allentown and they just hosted the yearly Monster Truck Weekend. The Monday after Thanksgiving is basically a state holiday around here as most companies and even state offices are closed for the first day of big game season (it’s just easier to shut down rather than hire temps to field the calls from employees ditching work.)

Liberal is NOT the word for this area!

Even though the town I live in has a good sized university and is rather culturally diverse, the county votes red consistently and when we send Democrats to the General Assembly they are generally indistinguishable from a conservative as anything else would see them voted out. Obama won by a bit over a half million votes in PA, and that margin was entirely thanks to Philadelphia County. Senators from PA tend to be iffy because they have to woo both types of voters and so can end up pulling a Toomey and pretty much dooming their political future but the Representatives we send from this area are pretty solid.

While I don’t necessarily disagree with him, it’s astonishing that he could post this stuff and still keep his job as Chief. And reading the article that was linked, the City Council backs him! That would not fly down here in SoCal.

Been There July 25, 2013 at 12:35 pm

Police in the US are generally never held accountable for any action, no matter how uncouth or criminal:

+1 for Radley Balko

Chris July 25, 2013 at 10:46 am

Ugh, don’t give gawker network any traffic. They were some of this shitheads who decided to post up a map of all gun owners in NY. They are so anti-gun they will invade someone’s privacy to do it.

Church July 25, 2013 at 12:45 pm

Yep, I live in PA. There are a lot of people up here just like him.

B.C. July 25, 2013 at 02:02 pm

So why is ENDO calling him a douchebag again?

ENDO-Mike July 25, 2013 at 02:06 pm

If you think the whole “Ayyyyyyy LOOK AT ME FUCK IM A FUCKING TOUGH FUCKING GUY FUCK AND I DON’T TAKE FUCKING SHIT FROM ANY FUCKING BODY” persona is classy and someone you’d hang around then I guess we’re different.

B.C. July 25, 2013 at 02:18 pm

I wouldn’t say he’s the classiest rep we’ve got as far as firearms owners go, particularly for NFA owners. Is his delivery flawed? Yes. Is he going to sway the undecided with his profanity laced tirades? Unlikely. Does he entertain the rest of us by saying what we all wish we could without consequence? Probably. Something tells me that this guy isn’t trying to sway anyone’s opinion. He’s just stating his in the most colorful way possible and pissing off the anti-2A/liberal crowd while he’s at it. Whether or not that makes the argument worse for the rest of us, time will tell. I share his viewpoints, but I don’t think I’d be expressing them the same way he has. Although he wouldn’t be eating dinner at my house any time soon, I’m not sure if I could hang him out to dry just yet.

John Fritz July 25, 2013 at 05:16 pm

I’d like to meet the guy in person. He’s got a big nut sack for posting these vids. As long as he’s not going to get himself in trouble w/ the full auto stuff I don’t see a problem. He’s free to say what he wants I guess. But man, a Chief? Interesting.

David July 26, 2013 at 04:28 am

Oh, he’s going to be a in a world of shit for the full auto stuff. Just wait. Remember this post, and just wait.

Jason L August 4, 2013 at 05:43 pm

Because he is using demo letters to essentially accrue NFA items for personal use?

Jim P. July 25, 2013 at 09:12 pm

Just remember there is a difference between a libtard and a libertatian.

Matt in FL July 25, 2013 at 11:26 pm

He seems angry.

rob July 26, 2013 at 05:26 pm

MAtter of fact read my shirt (it says infidel in arabic on it).

SittingDown July 27, 2013 at 12:08 am

Wear that in Iraq. Please film it…from multiple angles.

Max July 28, 2013 at 10:46 pm

Bla bla bla,

All I got from this was that the fucker needs to learn what trigger discipline is before he shoots himself in the hand again.

Jim C. October 13, 2013 at 08:58 am

Classic right-wing reactionary who probably thinks CO2 is conspiring against his “Constitutional right” to ignore scientific evidence. The gun nut crowd are the ones to fear, not the EPA or UN. These people have serious ego problems and faulty brain wiring.

Taylor TX October 13, 2013 at 11:52 am

You do realize “the gun nut crowd” are the people who read this GUN blog right?

carl May 19, 2014 at 11:10 am

Well there are two types of people called “gun nuts”.

Type 1 are “nuts about guns”. They own quite a few, know about a lot more, and spend lots of time and money involved with them.

Then there is Type 2. They have guns, and they’re nuts.

I think Jim C. was referring to type 2.
