A career of the police chief in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has been cut short after his wife supported President Trump in a comment to a Facebook post.
49-year-old Jarrad Berkihiser, faced an ultimatum from the mayor, Democrat Danene Sorace, to either retire or be fired, and eventually chose the former.
The account of this controversy comes from until recently the head of the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) for Lancaster, John Fiorill, who said Berkihiser had turned to the organization for advice once he was asked to step down on account of his wifes opinion expressed online.
On September 27, Kristy Berkihiser posted, and then deleted a comment in response to a Trump campaign volunteer who happens to be her friend, and who shared that the president was respectful and thankful to police officers during a rally at Harrisburg Airport.

Us old retired guys are very dangerous. We can say what we want without repercussions. They hate that.

And he’s only 49.
He could be the next mayor.
I bet he would get elected mayor if he ran against her.
There must be a lot missing from this article.
For more commentary:
ALL EMOCRATS ARE NASTY POSes!!
Police chief should run against mayor and replace her. Maybe get her recalled or resigned first.
If that is all there is to this story it could be a very plausible lawsuit.
Lancaster city is a world apart from the Amish-themed tourism normally associated with Lancaster county. Almost all of the visitors to the area drive right by on the way to the shopping, eating and entertainment attractions outside the city.
It looks like the mayor was elected in an off year election with under 5000 votes (for a city of 60000. I’m not sure what the registration numbers are, but that seems like a low barrier to overcome in an off year election if the populace is so inclined and a single good challenger is found) and she is up for reelection next year.
What kind of crap is this? This guy must have every lawyer in town at his door
Only they (the seditious, subversive traitors) are permitted a voice...
Hopefully, the officer will sue the city ...and the leftist loser mayor personally.
Apparently the wife's support for President Trump was appreciative over the fact that the president did not visit Saint Jacob Blake and his family.
You can’t even support your own president in this country, according to democrats. I hope he gets a lawyer.
I would probably be the richest person in Lancaster after I sues this asshat mayor, the city, and anyone who had anything to do with this!!!!
Live 40 minutes from Lancaster. As others said, Lancaster city is far different than Lancaster Co as a whole, but to be forced
Out over a FB post would have me going for the cities financial jugular!!!!
Good luck to him!!!!
More fascism from the left.
