Word on the street is Wilkes Barre City Police Chief Gerard Dessoye is TWO SECONDS from landing the job of Head of Campus Security at King's College.
After his tenure as Chief of WBPD, the city has seen skyrocketing crime rates, murders per capita among the HIGHEST in the nation, an unsolved crime statistic so high there isn't even a chart for which to track, and a police force that’s smeared by allegations of corruption.
Now if you’re a parent thinking about sending your child away to college take comfort in the fact that should something bad happen to your child, your new Head of Campus Security will not only NEVER solve the crime, but will more than likely move expeditiously to blame them, as we have seen oh so many times. Much like the rape of a young girl in Kirby Park the other day, where the Chief was quoted as saying “it’s in an area that people should be very cautious of”, referring to Kirby Park.
After all who would think, that one could stroll through a city park, while talking on your cell phone, and not expect to be raped?
Don’t get me wrong, as a city resident I couldn’t be happier that Gerry is leaving the WBPD, and we could only hope that we get a new chief, who is truly concerned about public safety.
As for King’s, don’t expect much, he doesn’t deliver much, but then again I suspect you already know that, and it’s not like you’re not hiring him based on his experience, yet to repay his lordship for either past or future taxpayer funded gifts.
