The Lancaster Pennsylvania Police Chief was forced out of his position after his wife posted on Facebook her support for President Trump.
Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser was forced out of his position after his wife commented on a Facebook post that she supported Trump. The post was written by his wife's friend after she had volunteered at a Trump rally.
“spoke so much of law enforcement officers and his respect and thankfulness for them! Why im voting for him again. Same reason as last time… you don’t see him meeting w Jacob Blake’s family or speaking to him by phone…”- Mrs Berkihiser
John Fiorill The previous president of the Fraternal Order of Police was appalled at the mayor's decision to push Chief Berkihiser out.
“This was an unjust situation that he was placed in, a clear violation of his rights. He was advised by the mayor that she wanted his resignation, based on those statements made on Facebook, not by Chief Berkihiser, but by Chief Berkihiser’s wife. He retired under his conditions, not the conditions of the mayor, not a termination. That’s exactly what he wanted to avoid and he wanted to avoid that turmoil.” - John Fiorill
