Pottymouthed Police Chief Suspended, Has 'No Regrets'

The Pennsylvania police chief turned YouTube star—whose videos featured Herculean levels of shooting and swearing—will get some time away from his beloved weaponry on a 30-day suspension without pay, PennLive reports. The Gilberton Borough Council ruled last night that Mark Kessler used the town-owned guns without permission, as a gun-toting crowd outside waved signs reading, "Impeach Obama, Mark Kessler for President." Inside, a petition with 20,000 signatures called for Kessler's dismissal. "These people are complaining to complain," Kessler, who says he made the videos to draw attention to the erosion of his rights, told the Morning Call. "I make no apologies. I have no regrets."
