Papa and Junior Fritzgerald Try To Milk Lehigh County
If you believe that Pawlowski was color blind when he hired Joel Fritzgerald as police chief, you might as well stop reading this post now. I believe that skin color helped propel Mr. Fritzgerald to the top of Pawlowski's search list. I was at the NAACP candidate's night in 2005, when Pawlowski pledged to make city hall more representative of the city's demographics.
The Fritzgerald family had no issues with such affirmative action when senior was hired. They had no issue with favoritism or nepotism when junior was hired as a guard at Lehigh County Prison.
Junior is now suing Lehigh County for racial profiling, because Jim Martin charged him after he pointed a gun at two detectives. I'm not bothering to rehash details of the case, or the subsequent acquittal here on this post. I understand that some may find my perspective on this situation offensive; However, this blog is not meant to comfort. Junior is lucky that the detectives didn't shoot him.
