Another warrant has just been issued for abusing the English language along with the one for having the illegal light bar.

So much for using that defense where you can't read and write and didn't understand the confession you signed jackass. Obviously you know enough to operate a computer, find this forum, read the posts, and reply to them by typing sentences (albeit, in 3rd grade grammar). You sir are as not as slick as you think.

I'll leave you with this quote to ponder - "The fox condemns the trap, not himself.- William Blake (English visionary Mystic, Poet, Painter and Engraver. 1757-1827)

Have you distributed my memo about legal lightbars for the borough to all firefighters yet. A study performed by Dr Abu Haschin indicates a direct correlation between illegal lightbars and firefighters setting fires.
Someone with an illegal lightbar is 87.47% more likely to become an arsonist.

well accuse me sir, but the DA what i heared from his family the DA is doing a more in-depth investigation on this real arsonist and like the court system says this could go on for years or month so it takes a long or short time to get this all worked out and the Karper family is going to sue the fire department, and cops, and the county for lose of other things, and chris karper is more as welcome in my fire department in Washington, DC any time. so back of JTFD
<quoted text>
Joe I mean Tom, I do not think you have a good case if you decide to sue the JTFD or the JTPD. However, if you sue for the lose of other things, I think you have an excellent case. A jury will decide in your favor if you sue for other things.

Other things is so clear cut, the judge and jury will decide in your favor hands down.

I believe all arson cahrges will be dropped. However, the illegal light bar will get Chris an additional 90 days in the county jail especially because you just admitted to having a blue light in your car.

I think the JTFD set you up because you can only use a red or a green light bar in JT and the JTFD knows that. It makes me wonder if they were setting you up.

Most of the people posting here obviously have no clue how the criminal justice system works. It would be my guess that most of the supporters here are Karper family members or multiple identities created by the same person. I sit back and laugh at the people who say you can use whatever color light you want in the borough. I laugh at the people who think the JTPD have somebody mysteriously hidden somewhere. However, I do laugh even harder at the people who try to profess Mr. Karper's innocence. Mr. Karper was not at home the night he was caught...he must be forgetting the people he told where he was that night and how none of that made any sense what so ever and his facts didn't add up.

Then of course you have Joe who was claiming to be a state trooper...that was by far the funniest posts I've read in here.

Keep up the entertainment gentlemen. It's providing some good laughs.

We received a call at approximately 10:20AM that a dark colored Chevy Suburban was spotted at Turkey Hill with an illegal lightbar. Any tips will be kept confidential. We take illegal lightbars very seriously in the borough of Jim Thorpe. If we catch you it is up to 25 years hard time and I'm not talking about time at The Carbon County Hotel aka Juracka's Park.

I hope that you sir have a legal lightbar since you think this lightbar business is such a joke. We in JT take having a proper lightbar very seriously. Our Chief, Robert "Bob" Quigley, is taking down names of people with illegal lightbars and we are soon going to take action. Sheriff Chuckles and Deputy Muscles will be ensuring that all lightbars are safe and legal in our metropolis.

I'm glad you think this lightbar business is a joke. I would love to catch you in the Borough of Jim Thorpe with an illegal lightbar. We will lock you quicker than Toad can suck down a krispy kreme. Chief Quigly has informed us that the Department of Homeland Security now considers an illegal lightbar an offense covered by the Patriot Act so you will be locked up and sent straight to Guantanamo no trial or lawyers. BRING ON THE ILLEGAL LIGHTBARS JACK!!!!!!!

1.) WOW you are a clever one sir! Did you figure that out all by yourself that the Karps's are posting under numerous names? You should work for the FBI!
2.)No crap idiot, there is a light bar law in the borough of JT. Also, there is a certain individual that patrols the town for illegal light bars and reports it to the cop on duty. That is how they caught the Karp kid and that is why he is in trouble.
3.) Joe was a state tropper at one time before he got a job on the JTPD. In fact, he served 15 years as a gray god you moron.
4.) Also, the kid is serving house arrest for an illegal light bar not because of the arson charges!
Get your facts straight before you post on here buddy!

The only way Chris is getting out of this one is if he hires the high profile Attorney John Karoley. Even myself and my team of attorneys in the firm of Schmick, Schweibenz and Lenthal cannot get him out of this one.
Good luck, but with the evidence they have, this young man is looking guilty as sin.
My son has a lightbar on his car, but it's OK, because it is Red and Blue. Red and Blue lightbars are ok and legal to use in the borough of JT, I'm telling you.
