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."

I've got no horse in this race, but it is highly likely that Westerhold completed his degree at Ohio University which has a very good journalism program and counts Matt Lauer as one of it's alumni. Most university programs also have on-line classes which make it possible for people to complete their degrees.

So if you are going to make a statement like that have your facts straight.

Frost the next chief,where are you people coming from the forest.This guy is a complete erratic and unconventional person.

You were the most erratic officer in SPD history. You bullied and abused so many people. The stress you put on a certain Lt was most likely a contributing factor in his illness. God rest his soul.

I think Frost will be the next chief, despite what a couple of you spew on here. SPD is doing very well and Phil can step in and keep the department moving forward. He will be ten times better then Nuesse was.

Don't be so jealous of Sams, Frost, Meinzer, etc. or whoever your next victim/victims may be. TST. TSK. Looks to me like Westerhold and Kim have been very busy on these blogs.

Keep up the great work. The next chief should be from within SPD!

Yeah they are professionals but unfortunatly not at being police officers. They are professional liars, professional backstabbers, professionals when it comes at robbing girl scout cookies. We need real police officers not these wannabe's. The next chief needs to come from a big city, at least he can recognize in house corruption and in house thiefs.

Yes they are professionals. They had to do a very difficult thing when they did not allow a chief to act in a unethical manner. They stood up and did the right thing. If only more individuals would do that.

Where are all the Nuesse supporters? We are sitting back & watching the Nuesse bashers make fools of themselves. We really don't need to say or do anything. The city is doing it all for us. The more the officers testify, the quicker Kim will be back. Sandusky is a joke.

Keep up the great work. The next chief should be from within. How about Kevin Baxter? Or Tom Ferrell?

You have lost every step and will continue to lose every step. She deserved to be fired and she knows it. She was in way over her head. She had no idea what she was doing. She was carried for some time before her arrogance took over and start doing so many unethical things. She had bosses (commissioners) and she decided to take them on. When you do that, you usually get fired. Kim is gone and will win no money.

Cease with the ethics issue. Unethical, dishonest, biased and corrupt is the middle name of your prosecutors, judges, commissioners and right on down the line.

NUESSE'S LAWSUIT ISN'T THE ONLY LAWSUIT CAUSED BY THE VILLAGE IDIOT BULLIES!

Anonymous

I know that you all don't like hearing the unethical issue, it's what got her fired. The truth hurts and you will either deal with it or you won't. Either way, she got fired and will stay fired. Your ploy of deflection has been Nuesse's since the beginning. Don't look at what I have done, look elsewhere. Well it didn't work and won't work. As for any lawsuit, she will get nothing!

Want to hear some REAL unethical issues in Erie County? They will make Kim's $15.00 parking ticket look like the joke of the century.....oh, excuse me, it's already the joke of the century.

Then the joke is on her, because she is fired, will stay fired and deserves to be fired1

Just out of curiosity why do you have so much hate for Kim Nuesse? Your hate goes beyond normal.
