Not exactly true. The location can be wrong because it's based off of your Internet providers server location. When i'm at work it usually shows me from 1 or 2 places in Ohio although I work in PA. At home i'm usually shown that i'm from Reading although I live in Muhlenberg.

I don’t see how this guy did NOTHING wrong. He busted out his badge for a reason. That’s just common sense. But proving that he was impersonating a cop will come down to testimony from both parties involved. It doesn’t look good for him since he decided to whip out the badge though. And last time I checked, a cop doesn’t have the power to make any establishment accept anyone. Especially if you broke the establishments rules and they barred you. Regardless, he will get a slap on the hands just like the Constables that stole money did in Reading.

No, he's still there. He's assisted me with other issues since and was fine. Maybe it was just a bad night for him as he was actually patrolling. Then again, maybe he figured we were all nobodies and he was somebody.:(

We have a neighbor across the street whose big mouth has him banned from most of the bars in the township. I wonder if the good commissioner would go to bat for him. After all, it would be helping the businesses.
Another badge heavy employee is the codes officer. His English is barely recognizable and he believes in select enforcement. You all should have been at the meeting where the representative from the dairy ( from Africa) and Abodalo were going back and forth. The court reporter threw her hands up in the air and told them both to slow down because she couldn't understand them! Everyone was laughing - what a bunch of fools.
As for our police...it's a tough job and their hands are tied in many ways. Every time I've needed help the response has been quick and courteous (with the exception of a certain seargent who seemed to play favorites with a certain hotel). No matter - the LCB took quick care of the problem.
You mean the guy doing building construction inspections with NO certifications and NO engineering background related to construction? L&I would likely be interested in knowing why NO plan reviews are being done in support of issued construction permits.

Wonder who this imaginary engineer knew to get the job?

I don't know how he got the job. He plays many games, none fair. There's a guy aorund the corner who fixes up junkers for resale. His garage fell down and the doors blocked the alley. A resident called because it was her access lane being blocked. She was told nothing could be done, she should move the doors, and a letter has been mailed to the resident. Operating a business without proper credentials? Health hazard? Who cares? Clearly no one in on Leesport Avenue. I wonder if the resident's from Kuwait, too!

This guy is trouble!!! This isn't his first time impersonating an officer I wish those people would come forward. He abuses his position to be a hero to all the losers in this township. There will be alot of people at the upcoming meetings to speak up and hopefully get him thrown out of his position and shame on our police force for not taking action on this loose cannon

Commissioner who thinks he's actually a cop flashing a badge to intimidate a business to let a bum back into the store after he was banned for his own actions; seem to recall this same commissioner admitting to chasing a car with own private vehicle at speeds at or above 80 MPH on River Rd several years ago.

$2 million in tax revenue committed to purchase 2 pieces of over sized unneeded and unjustified fire apparatus with no contributions known from the other townships where at least one of pieces operates on a first due basis. Township licensed cars being used for personal family business, ETC

What kind of joint is Murray in charge of?

Well if township politics don't work out for him he could certainly do well at the county level with this type of attitude.

They must be trying to get around the L&I Certs like Reading is. The state makes you get a UCC cert to be a Building Inspector. But thats too hard for these morons to pass. So they figure, why not make them Property Maintenance & Housing Inspectors inspectors. A Housing Inspector sounds close enough to a Building Inspector right!? The problem is that a monkey could pass the Housing Inspector test. It's open book, 50 questions, and lasts two hours. But it's not even close to the State requirements.

People just need to question the certification of anyone in Muhlenberg Codes. They tried to harass me once for doing work inside my house and I questioned their certs face to face. They didn't like that and left me alone. And the second time I had to actually explain the code to them when I had a problem neighbor.

What gives this idiot the right to threaten a taxpayer and pull a badge the taxayer pays for. This idiot needs celltime.

Muhl twp is the most corrupt place to live. We have a problem with a neighbor. We call police, they threaten to arrest us, cause were picking on the neighbor. This neighbor we later found out does brick work for Muhl. Cops, and is untouchable! Filed a complaint was told just move! I watched township workers take asphalt and use township equipment to fix this guys driveway. I watched a township truck plow his driveway. Even though Geras, and Didyoung are gone, we still have Landis on the board.
