Lower Merion Committee Recommends Firing Police Officer

Commissioners discussed the issue in executive session.

The Lower Merion Board of Commissioners Police Committee unanimously recommended Wednesday night that the full board approve the firing of an unidentified township police officer.

The committee meeting began nearly 40 minutes after its scheduled 6 p.m. start because the commissioners were in executive session discussing the personnel issue with Lower Merion Police Superintendent Michael McGrath.

Lower Merion Commissioners Liz Rogan, Paul McElhaney, Rick Churchill, Brian Gordon, Scott Zelov, George Manos and Brian McGuire were present for the vote.

After the committee meeting, McGrath declined to identify the officer or the grounds for termination to a Patch reporter, citing township personnel policy.

However, McGrath confirmed the officer who was fired was not the same .

Eric Campbell contributed to this report.

Criminal Public Corruption under LM Commissioners READ: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/montco_memo/Walsh-chosen-as-Lower-Merions-new-publicist.html Congratulations Tom! Your self-proclaimed journalistic skills as a community “watchdog” reporter are now well matched to the company you keep. You most certainly do demonstrate “birds of a feather flock together” Here the community can now see your journalistic skills in action: In of your own investigative inquiry into the attempted murder and brutal attack just outside the Lower Merion Police Headquarters by the Lower Merion Police resulting in permanent disabilities to the victim you were so interested in exposing this public felony criminal corruption to the community. After checking the allegations with the Police and Township Commissioners …. You quashed this vital and life safety community story. Have you betrayed all of us in the community? You are willing to leave the community exposed to criminal felony attacks by the public officials sworn to up hold the laws? I again afford you and the Lower Merion Township Board of Commissioners public exposure, live on the Township cable channel, as to the standing widespread and un-investigated felony crimes committed by our public officials. This would certainly show your true meaning “Community watchdog” or “Township lapdog” reporter. Richard Liberatoscioli richard.liberatoscioli@gmail.com
