Rat Poison! It's What's For Dinner!
Any one of those things, if true, could and should land me in jail. The accusation alone is pretty damn chilling. One would think that Mezzacappa would immediately contact Easton police, especially after capturing me on video. After all, in 2011, she called police to her home seven times (see below) for matters as trivial as a noisy taxi.
As soon as she made these ridiculous claims last week, I filed a Right-to-Know request with Easton police. Oddly enough, there's no record at all of any reports to police about any video of me placing nails under her car tires or peering into her car windows. There's no report of last week's supposed rape threat or a threat to give her pig tainted meat, either.
Maybe she forgot.
Until Monday night.
After seeing me in West Easton for a borough council meeting on Monday night, Mezzacappa made sure to call Easton's finest. (You can see the police report here). She complained someone had fed her pig rat poison and that someone might be me because ... I was in the borough.
Mezzacappa then told the officer about the "tainted meat" email threat she had received the previous week. On her blog,she claims the email was from me. But she told police it was anonymous.
And guess what? She deleted it.
According to the investigating officer, the little piggie was acting normally, eating bread and drinking water. But Mezzacappa pointed to a neat little pile of a "blue granular substance," not scattered around, which the officer recognized as rat poison.
Now I don't know much about pigs, but it seems to me that a piggie who noses around in rat poison is going to scatter it all over the place, not leave it in some neat little pile.
By the way, there's another police report on file from January. That's when Easton police had to escort Mezzacappa from Borough Hall. She had apparently dropped in to demand records without making an appointment, and then refused to leave. When she did go home, she called police to claim that Borough Council Prez Kelly Gross had left a voice mail, screaming at her.
She accidentally deleted that voicemail, too.
Here's a summary of the seven police reports from last year.
WWWE Files: The Wicked Witch and the Beeping Cabbie - In addition to a tirade at a cabbie who was beeping his horn outside her home, the Wicked Witch was reported by two people, including the cabbie, to have used the "N" word in describing her neighbors. According to the Officer, "her vocabulary was tinged with hints of racial bias." Hey, no crime in that, right?
WWWE Files: W Easton Stole My Letter ... to W Easton - Mezzacappa accuses Borough Council Prez Kelly Gross of stealing a letter for the zoning officer, and demands an investigation by both the "division of government corruption" and DA John Morganelli.
WWWE Files: Wicked Witch Reports Chop Shop ... on a Second Floor. - They must be dealing with Fiats.
WWWE Files: First a Chop Shop, Now Drug Dealers - Yep, these are drug dealers who race and down her street in loud cars.
WWWE Files: The Beeping Cabbie Sets the Wicked Witch Off Again. - The bells, the bells
WWWE Files: No Parking on Mezzacappa's Block - Mezzacappa delights her neighbors by photographing their parked cars.
WWWE Files: Bernie the Burglar Even though I left no tell tale "BO" glove, I apparently stole important papers from her home, leaving everything else intact.
