Phil Frost was camera shy, and angry about it

Here's how life works for Sandusky police Lt. Phil Frost: When his boss gives him an order he doesn't understand, she's a liar. When he misleads the Murman investigators, he calls those "misstatements."

Frost acknowledged Thursday that several statements attributed to him in the Murman report were "inaccurate" or "misstatements."

City officials should be embarrassed the expensive legal team they hired to conduct fired police Chief Kim Nuesse's civil service hearing actually believe Phil is a credible witness. He threw a fit during his testimony on Thursday because a reporter snapped a photograph of him while he was on the witness stand. Gosh Phil, you're a public official on the taxpayer payroll. You should at least have had the guts to speak out publicly and allow the reporter to not only photograph you but also videotape your testimony. After all, you want to get the truth out there, don't you?

When Nuesse testified earlier this month she allowed her entire testimony to be recorded and videotaped.

The city's legal team appears to be actively encouraging its witnesses to demand their testimony not be videotaped or recorded in any way. Does that mean they don't want residents to see this? If it does, that might mean they don't want the truth out there and by their actions are continuing to conceal it.

I agree with the sentiments these two commenters expressed earlier this week.

"What remarkably vague and unsubstantiated "testimony" from a supposedly seasoned professional police officer. You can now add him to the list of slander defendants."

"OH MY GOD! All this expense not to mention all the humiliation this poor woman has been put through just so a bunch of idiots can call her a liar, a thief and now a demon...I am so ashamed of this city and the DEMONS that are running it."

Frost will be SPD's next chief.

He would be much better at it.

No one inside the police department should get chief. The city should hire from outside who knows how to run a department and doesn't have any connections with the present employees of the police department. Most of the time, it is better to promote from within, but under these circumstances, no one within should get the promotion.

Hire from outside? Isn't that what they just did? Look at the MESS that caused. I would hope they wouldn't make the same mistake. I would think she has taught them a good lesson. Hire within.

Westerhold is a wienie. Frost has served his community for a long time and does not deserve to be abused by a biased so called editor.

I would be willing to bet that 90% of the Pro-Westerhold posts on here, HAS to come from Matt himself. That is the only explaination for ANYONE thinking he is a good editor. Its painfully obvious that he is doing all this to try to get noticed by Kim Nuesse. Why else would he take such an interest in her "case". In order for Matt to be right, you would have to believe that EVERYONE including the Fire Chief is lying. It takes a real man to slander a highly dedicated officer, and feel youre doing some service for the community. What Matt is doing is attemping to turn the community against the Police Department,and THAT should be considered criminal!!

Frost is a complete psycopath, they should take his gun away before he hurts an innocent civilian. There is not one person in the SPD qualified to be chief. They are all part of the GOB's within the force. We need to completely clean house of command officers and start new. By the way, I was at the hearing and yes Frost did throw a fit at having his picture taken. I was embarrassed that he was even on our police force. I am glad this was not shown live over a national network so people would see just how inept this department is now. What a total embarrassment for our city Frost and Sams are.

Whoever gets the Sandusky Police Chief job will be handpicked. In fact it's already a done deal. Baxter, McGookey, Binette, Tone, Lyons and all the rest of them already know who it is.....

Does anyone else think Westerhold looks like Pee Wee Herman on a bad hair day?

How does THAT feel, Matt? Not so good I'll bet.

Word is that Frost will be the next chief!

Don't count the old chief out just yet! The 2nd floor shake up at city hall could be a mess.

You have no idea what youre talking about. Phil has testified more times in court than you could ever dream of. At least he contributes something to society unlike Westerhold and his cronies. Like Westerhold you are all real tough when you are typing these things from your Greg Brady attic room at your parents house. Not a one of you would ever say these things TO Frost, especially Cowardly Westerhold who hides behind Kimmie's skirt.

Good one!!! and YES he does, I wonder what else he has in common with Pee Wee Herman???

Did Kim enoy her holiday on Friday?

I wonder sometimes, what Matt thinks when he logs on and sees how many people despise him?? I have seen people say that if you dont like Matt's column then dont read it, well my answer to that is, when ever I get a chance to express my hatred for this man's so called morals, I take it. However, I wonder if it ever gets to him?? Yes he does have SOME supporters, but the OVERWHELMING majority, thinks he's a joke. He is SO bias and for some reason has a HUGE chip on his shoulder towards the Police Department. I mean whether you have been following the Nuesse thing, you have to be a fool to think that ALL these accusations are made up. She was a HORRIBLE chief and she will never come back, at least not to SPD. When she is gone for good and Matt trys moving on to something else, I think he will find that because of this, no one will take anything he writes seriously.......sorry Matt, youre a joke!

Go to Reynoldsburg and ask anyone within the criminal justice system about Kim. What you will find out is that they dumped their problem on Sandusky. They were very happy about her leaving. My question is why Westerhold continues to defend her, what is his agenda?

Say what you will about Nuesse. The department sure seems to be doing very well without her. You blast all the SPD supervisors, but all appears to be going well. I am sure when something does go wrong, it will be front page news.

Anonymous

Blast him all you want. Kim will not be back and Frost will become the next chief at SPD. Westerhold, cry all you want, you can't control this.

Anonymous

Where are all of the Nuesse supporters anyway? Seems to me they just aren't around anymore. Well, besides the one guy that makes blog after blog. What ever happened to that Sue Daugherty? She always seemed to stick up for her. Seems they have all just disapeared. Hmmm, did they finally see the truth?

Anonymous

The supporters just are not like you anti-Nuesse people, they will let the system run its course. They know it will end with a Nuesse victory and this city is going to have to pay millions of its own money, not the insurance, to pay for this. After going to all the testimonys, the city is losing this big time and have no leg left to stand on. If I was Nuesse, when she wins, I would not take my job back, I would bankrupt this city and make Kline and his commissioner friends lose their jobs. Frost is the biggest loser on this SPD and needs to be fired and take that crybaby Sams with him. Perkins would welcome people like them.

To- Well no, hello Matt & Kim, how is it going? Any job offers.

Anonymous

No job offers to Kimmie, but Frost will be getting that SPD open chief's job.

does lt. frost appear to be on the "juice?" his body and facial features are consistent with someone who has "bulked up" through the use of artificial agents. also his personality is that of someone who is wrapped way to tight. his paranoia towards the press and the truth come into play. just an observation via the porfiles of mark mcguire, barry bonds and others.

Anonymous

I don't think Lt. Frost will get the chief's job, once it's open. I think the Human Relations Committee prefer someone from the outside the area for whatever reason.

juiced, first time Matt had time to check the blogs?
