Phil Frost was camera shy, and angry about it

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

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."

Phil Frost

         


         


         


         


         

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.

That maybe he didn't want to be photographed or taped because the SR and Westerhold are so biased? Look what you did to Sam's. Very, very childish, I might add. I don't think any of you should even be allowed in there. You are so one sided it is sickening. Why would anyone want you to tape them? I sure wouldn't!

Anonymous

Besides that, Why in the world can't you EVER write about anything else Westerhold? Seems to prove the point of biased to me.

As residents we should be demanding that this "trial" be videotaped. Remember people we as citizens are the final check and balance.

If Phil Frost wanted to avoid my bias then wouldn't the best thing have been to allow his testimony to be recorded and replayed for residents to judge for themselves?

It is amazing when you get on the stand how you must tell the truth. The cops call Nuesse dishonest, what about Frost back stepping his statements and making false statements and that is okay? The difference is that he is under oath. Can't wait for the attorneys to start testifying. I think by the time this is all over, the city will have to get rid of a few good old boys in the police department and possibly one city manager. They are enough to drive anyone a little nuts. No wonder she had to keep looking over her shoulder all the time.

You people are just plain nosy. I think the ones involved that know what REALLY went on can handle it without you.

?? From what I have seen in these stories in the SR, I really don't think I would trust it.

Well it's very simple. If you don't want the other witnesses to hear what each other said, you make them leave the room. If would be pretty stupid for the Register to then video tape them and put the testimony on the internet. Come on, it is not that hard to see why they don't want to be taped and the Judge should have stopped all taping when the first motion was made. But of course, Westerhold would not have been able to see all testimony so he could prepare for his turn in the box. Get a life Matt you are pathetic.

That look on his face is from when he heard that Matt Westerhold was actually hired by a newspaper to try writing. Phil just could not believe it, based on the crap he had seen Westerhold writing when he was a punk at the register starting out.

I find it disturbing Matt, that you're calling into question Frost's "guts". This from a man that is the biggest coward this county has ever known. We all get it Matt....you are IN LOVE with Kim Nuesse, I mean why dont you just come out and say it, WE ALL KNOW IT!!! I mean you have to wonder why a good looking blonde wouldnt want a sniveling little "wannabe" editor of the Sandumpsky Register. What a life you could provide for her. I am sure she would feel safe with you by her side. When ever trouble comes, youll run and lock your office door and write about it. I am sure Phil is losing a lot of sleep this weekend because mean ole' mister Westerhold said mean things about him. I like how you only list the Pro-Matt posts on your sad editorials. You are such a joke Matt.....you have proven that the pen is NOT mightier than the sword. Frost TELLS it like it is, but you WRITE it like it is. Whats wrong Matt is Frost the kind of person who use to steal your pocked protector in school and stuff you into lockers?? Is that why you are so bitter?? Kim's got herself a REAL man here huh?????LOL!!!!

Here I sit having this visualization. HILARIOUS.

Matt, you just gotta be in love with Nuesse. There is nothing else to explain your obsession with her and this whole story. It's all you ever write about anymore. I have never seen such biased coverage on a story from any newspaper before. I am not a city resident and I don't know who I believe in this Nuesse vs. SPD case. However, it sure would be great to maybe just get some unbiased reporting. I know this blog is for you to state your own opinion, but I can't help but think that you influence your reporters who are writing about this because of your own infatuation and bias regarding Kim Nuesse.

Anonymous

I believe the Register published at the time of Westerhold's hire that he received his degree from either Ohio University or Miami of Ohio in 2004? At that time, however, he was working at the Elyria Chronicle? That's quite a commute! Is this an online degree? That would explain a lot. Is it a degree at all? Hmmmmm? That would explain everything.

The reasons for not wanting a video tape are simply to avoid losing the bigger lawsuit that will surely be filed if the chief is not reinstated.

All of the video tapes of the city's witnesses could contribute to studying who is squirming and not telling the truth.

The city has apparently figured out how weak their witnesses are as evidenced by Sam's and Frost testimony. With video, even a stress analysis of the voices and body language may be interpreted to assist Nuesse's attorney who will have a field day with that level of data upon which to build the key questions and exploit the witness weaknesses to win the lawsuit against the city.

This officer starts yelling and throws a fit just because someone snapped a picture of him. This is the kind of officer we have on our force. When things do not go his way he starts throwing fits. Makes me feel real safe to know this idiot is on our force and is allowed to carry a gun. Looks like the city is losing big time on this. They better back off and admit their mistake or it is going to cost us more then the insurance will cover.

I agree---when Nuesse testified she allowed her entire testimony to be recorded and videotaped. These guys are idiots that talk out of two sides of their mouths. Nothing but a bunch of crybabies who should be ashamed of themselves.

Lets put Frost and Westerhold in a celebrity tough man contest. The winner gets to de-pants the other for a video to be put on line by the register. Then everyone can see if Westerhold is really a man or a mouse by the size of or lack of.

Your frustration at having your girl friend getting sent packing is to funny to watch. Even seeing you at the McCain rally, you were showing how aggravated you were not to have her there by your side. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA you are two losers, what a pair.

How much of this can you take. Has it sunk in yet about her and Matt and Tim. We guess it was just about the pay check for you also, her being with them as much as she apparently was, leaving them heart broken.

Sams' testimony was on the SR video feed and the SR only provided small little blurbs, much like Nuesse's testimony. The truth is coming out..only the bias reporting won't print it.

You don't play the entire video. You play parts of testimony. Play all of it so people can make up their own minds. Not everyone has the same feelings for her that you do. Love is blind.

Westerhold admits that he agrees with Nuesse supporters. Come on, you have spun this show from the beginning. Kim can't get along with the police command staff, the fire chief, the law director, the administrative services boss, the county prosecutor, the sheriff, the city manager and several city commissioners. If she was such a great chief, she would have learned to work with them. That would be a great leader, not someone who comes in looking to lie and fight everyone. Be a leader and get people to see your way, don't lie to get your way.

Anonymous

Those of you who believe anything that Matt says are sadly mislead. I know Phil Frost personally and there is no way he pouted because a reporter wanted to take his picture...so now not only is Westerhold being bias he is once again lying to us all. Phil Frost is one of the most accessible officers at that department, anyone who has ever had any dealings with Phil knows that true. If Phil didnt wanna be taped it had to be on the advice of the city's attorney. I just can not believe there is normal hard working people that are this bitter against the Police Department. Westerhold is the on inciting this and I think he should be held accountable. He is doing all this in hopes that Kim will like him...well SHE WONT Matt.....so give it up and start focusing on something else....you are a pathetic excuse for an editor....

I swear Matt looks just like the guy who delivered my pizza last night in this picture. Matt do you work for Pizza House West???

You say she allows to be video taped and recorded? Did you ever take into consideration that it is probably because Westerhold and the SR are bias? What would she be afraid of they don't print anything positive about the other side? I would not trust Westerhold either. He will do ANYTHING to defend this woman, something like infatuation. Besides, she loves the attention.

I would say that maybe you should print some truth about the witnesses also...that way you won't appear so bias.

Frost must have been coached for hours before his testimony. LIES classified as "inaccurate" or "misstatements" is dirty-lawyer talk.

Were you there or just going by Westerholds word? Or are you Matt? Try getting a little bit more information (ex: truth) before spewing all of your hatred. Citizens of Sandusky are getting alittle tired of your belittleing.

No, I am not going by Westerhold's word, I am not Matt (but thanks anyway) and I know this to be a fact----LIES classified as "inaccurate" and "misstatements" is lawyer talk---excuse me, I meant dirty-lawyer talk. THE END. (which means I have no intention of arguing with you)

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!!

Anonymous

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

This is hard to believe. When Phil started into LE he actually believed he could make a difference. Now, it appears he has forgotten what LE is all about. When you are deceptive under oath, then you have forgotten the meaning of being a cop. I just cannot believe it. The case against Nuesse has just gotten weaker.

So everyone is lying except Nuesse. Come on, get real. Let's see, I did not get the ticket, the car did. I did not get the CP tickets as chief. The lap tops were never taken out of the cars. These are all one hundred percent lies. So far four Sandusky Police Officers and a fire chief with more then twenty years on the job each have testified. And they would risk all those years for why? I know each one of those officers. And I know the eleven police supervisors that signed the no confidence vote in Nuesse's abilities. They are not lying, she is. And all of you Nuesse supporters will attack all the other witnesses that tell how she lied. Oh well, she was fired, is fired and will stay fired.

What the heck is this big deal about a stupid parking ticket? Erie County allowing attorneys to criminally transfer the trust property of an incompetent resident of the ECCF on a forged POA hidden in another county and then defrauding one of the beneficiaries to the property is a lot worse than that. Don't look now but property cost a lot more than $15.00. Erie County allowing Lorain County attorneys to criminally remove permanent records from the Recorder's office to cover up fraud is no small matter, either. And that was only a small part of it. So take your bull about Kim Nuesse's joke $15.00 parking ticket and put it where the sun doesn't shine. She was railroaded and everybody knows it!

Well downplay her ticket, her lies, and all the other things. Obviously you don't get it and never will. I want a chief of police that doesn't lie and has the respect of her peers. so for you, she was fired, is fired and will stay fired. If you don't like it, tough!

degrading the witnesses. Quit saying your issue (which isn't the topic, and nobody cares about) is worse than Nuesse's actions, or lack thereof. Quit trying to armchair quarterback when you weren't there to actually see what happened. Bottom line, this employee did not meet the standards or wishes, etc. of their boss, and the boss has the right to let them go. Happens every day.

Really? Does that mean if the public servants and public officials in this county do not meet the standard of their bosses (the taxpayers) the bosses have the right to let them go?

Absolutely correct. It the elected officials don't meet standards, then the public can fire them. Obviously this is not the case with Lyons, Baxter or Ferrell. They all just got reelected. The people have spoke and they don't agree with the very small group of Nuesse supporters.

I was hoping Phil would be a candidate for Chief of Police. But, it does not appear this will ever happen. All this hearing has done is air all his dirty laundry to the public. I do not like a personnel file being read into the open court records. But, it is all about credibility. We shall see what the others have in their files. No one is going to win.

Phil will be a candidate for chief. What was in the others files that testified?

OK Westerhold, next topic, please. (And hopefully it will be about something other than your lady love Nuesse.) Why do you leave the same blog up here for weeks at a time?

This one is dead, no one cares any more. I'm sure Matt will have an editorial about Crandall and Murray by tomorrow. Come on, we know it's coming, then that will be on this stupid blog for the next three weeks.

Until Westerhold is fired!

I am thankful for Matt Westerhold for NOT falling in lock step with the business as usual. Do you people really think you can do what ever you want and not be scrutinized? Come on! People working FOR the public are supposed to try and make things better. You can NOT continue to run things the way YOU feel like. If Phil Frost is considered for chief, the SR will re-run this story so the PEOPLE can be involved in the decision making. Phil's future ambitions are now in jeapordy. If a new chief comes in to clean things up, the city commission will NOT support anymore conspiracy juntas less they are voted out of office by the PEOPLE.

CM: I (and many other subscribers/blog readers) wish that you'd complete your SR boycott and stop viewing the website. Or at least stop the useless/inane comments.

You might have cancelled your subscription (I bet) but you sure are on these blogs enough.

It should be about time for Westerhold's next victim to criticize. Hmm, I wonder who the next poor soul will be.

My, my, my, why are we always talking about these poor, poor souls and these poor, poor victims.
Why don't you just admit the truth----if their souls weren't so ugly nobody would have any room to criticize.

Locate, isolate, and eliminate. I can't wait to here you explain that. And for the record, Frost will be the next chief!!!!

You had a bright, energetic Chief in Kim Nuesse, who was truly an Ambassador for the City. You put up with thugs like this. What an image you are creating. Bring Nuesse back, let her clean house. There are plenty waiting for those jobs.

Dude, why don't you shake the Nuesse cobwebs out of your brain and write something about the CRG/stop the Marina District travesty. I am angry that my vote FOR the project and the majority votes FOR the project are now able to be ignored because of a bunch of hand-wringing, whiny losers. Got any thoughts on THAT, or can you only think about Kimmie? Why have a blog if you rarely write...and then only on one topic?

That was funny....Nuesse cobwebs...I like that! Thanx for the funny.

IMO the SR has a poor record of reporting the truth. I have seen first hand how they can not get the story straight. I have seen how when they are handed a written report that that report gets changed by the time it gets to the paper. I am sorry but there are MANY MANY people here in Sandusky that think the same way that I do. We just do not beleive what is written. Remember...there is no law that states that the paper must print the "truth".
When I say truth I mean the real truth not "relavent truth".
