Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
There is no need to whisper, this is important and we must make a stand as residents!
I've been hearing many residents asking questions about how our Borough is dealing with The Acting Chief of Police hinting that he is positioning for a " long term " disability buy out! Many Police officers have advised that a memo was sent out explaining that our Acting Chief would be missing work due to residual health issues from a automobile accident that occurred in 2012.
I personally hope that the accident that is being referred to was NOT the accident that many of us witnessed at Chester Pike and Sellers Avenue involving our acting chief. I personally have pictures of this accident and those involved in the accident being transported by ambulance in STREET CLOTHES after being removed from their PERSONAL VEHICLES. If we the tax payers are paying for a short term disability in regards to this said accident, then I have a real issue with how this is being handled.
I also will not sit and watch a Council offer ANY kind of long term disability that involves my tax dollars funding this "OFFER". I am in possession of the police report of the 2012 accident. The pictures in possession from the accident also show a "piece of paper / document" from the sun visor from a different employer as evidence of where someone might have been coming from at that hour of the day traveling to the job in Ridley Park. If you are late for work and driving to your job, this should NEVER substantiate that you are "on the clock" for the borough.
What is amazingly hypocritical to me is one of our Ridley Park Police Corporals was involved in an accident that occurred during his shift - in a Ridley Park police vehicle and our acting chief and borough manager had surveillance video following the Corporal trying to undermine him on a daily basis. They tried to have the officer's job terminated and he was hurt "in the line of duty".
Now we are being told that our acting chief is trying to say his accident "off duty" is credible as to warrant a disability that we the tax payers will have to pay. NOT IN MY BOROUGH! Let this blog serve as notice to Mr. Berger and the Ridley Park Council that if you try to allow ANY buy outs or pay offers for early termination that are not 100 % documented, you can be sure that I personally will be there with my own "SURVEILLANCE DEVICES" and documents ( insurance / disability etc.) to stop these kind of political shenanigans with tax payer dollars here in Ridley Park.
The elephant in the room has now been called out in public for all to reply on. Haters need not reply, just speak of the facts!
