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."

Until Westerhold is fired!

Taxpayer

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.

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.

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".
