Mezzacappa has recently been convicted of disorderly conduct for death threats directed at the West Easton Borough Council President. The Express Times banned her as a commenter after she repeatedly posted this death fantasy, obviously intended for me:
When armagedon comes a runnin towards my house, I stand armed and ready. I picture armegedon about 5 ft 9 and balding, little eyeglasses on the tip of his nose, and enough fat flaps to insulate a bull. Deep breath, aim, shoot, and....one hollow point goes right through his skull, he's dead before he hit the ground, kersplat....PERFECTShe has also recently advocated the use of deadly force against a 14 year-old Dieruff High School girl who was tased by Allentown police last year: "Too bad he didnt [sic] shoot this wildly obnoxious imbecile with a real weapon. One less problem student who will ultimately be a terrible leach [sic] on society, after being trained to think she is above the law. One shot, kersplat, perfect, problem solved."
Orloski has sent this letter to Sheriff Randy Miller, asking him to pull the plug on Mezzacappa's gun permit:
Re: Application for Right To Carry Permit: 4/13/12
Dear Sheriff Miller:
It has come to my attention that Tricia Mezzacappa listed my name as a personal reference on her application for a Right-To-Carry Gun Permit. The application is dated 4/13/12. Implicitly, by using my name (and also John Stoffa’s name), she was suggesting to you that I was endorsing her application. Nothing could be further from the truth and she already knew it.
About April 10, 2013, I started receiving nasty emails from her and her supporters. I was already being parodied on her website. She had called my office multiple times during that period, and she was explicitly told by my receptionist that I was absolutely refusing to talk to her on the telephone, and all of our communications must be in writing. I did not trust her.
There was no way on April 13, 2012 when she filled out the application for a gun permit that she believed in good faith that I was endorsing her right to carry a concealed weapon on the streets of our Commonwealth. A sample of said e-mails during that period have been faxed to your office.
To the extent that you issued her a Right To Carry Permit relying upon her patently false assertion that I was a “personal reference,” I would urge you to re-visit her application. Tricia Mezzacappa has suggested, in published writings that she would enjoy killing people. There is no way that she should be given the privilege of carrying a concealed weapon on the streets where she may attempt to make her fantasies come true. Her “hollow point bullet in the skull” missive is attached hereto.
Very truly yours,
Richard J. Orloski
