Police Chief Mark Kessler was placed on suspension by the Gilberton Borough Council on Wednesday after uploading several videos filled with profanity and machine gun fire.
The police chief was suspended without pay for 30 days for using “borough property for non-borough purposes without prior borough permission," ruled the council (video below).
On the videos, Kessler also appeared to make veiled threats against Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
Not long ago, the mayor of the small Pennsylvania town, Mary Lou Hannon, defended Kessler's freedom of speech and refused to discipline him.
According to WFMZ, several pro-gun activists dressed like militia and armed with loaded semi-automatic weapons demonstrated outside the Wednesday council meeting.
They also carried American flags and signs that read: "Impeach Obama, Kessler For President" and "Legalize The Constitution."
Some of the protesters tried to obstruct the local press' First Amendment rights by flashing strobe lights while the media was trying to interview Kessler.
It got so bad that Kessler and his lawyer had to tell them to stop. Kessler then told the reporters: “I make no apologies and I have no regrets."
Sometime after the council meeting, Kessler posted an angry message on his website attacking the city council:
