Is Mezzacappa Still Packin'?

She's been a pistol-packin' momma. Though her license to carry has been revoked, Tricia Mezzacappa nevertheless has appeared with a holstered gun at a political fundraiser in Lower Nazareth, the elections office in Easton and Payrow Plaza in Bethlehem. While she does have a right to open carry, she has no right to transport a gun in a vehicle, loaded or unloaded, in separate compartment or not. But Mezzacappa is hinting that her gun totin' days may be over.

In one of her last entries before she took down her blog, "Diary of an Empty Holster," (saved on cache here), Mezzacappa hints that she's finally been disarmed.

Anonymously, she has posted increasingly bizarre comments on this blog, suggesting she may have had one of Gregory's guns, which she supposedly took from the console of his uninsured Camaro.

The problem with Mezzacappa's statement is that it's hard to believe anything she says. But she may have lost more than her blog ...and her job ... and her relationship with Gregory ...and her blog ... and her mind.

If we are all lucky, she might have lost her gun. If any of you know what is going on, feel free to enlighten us.

Bernie,

In her Kirkland Village rant, Mezzacappa bashed three unsuspecting RNs, including Christina Truss, the director of nursing.

If you Google this nurse's name and Kirkland Village, you can get her email address and her phone number. On the Kirkland Village website, this is how she is described: "Christina is responsible for delivery of care to the 60 residents served in our Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. In addition, she is responsible for managing all professional staff on the skilled nursing and memory support units."

An email from you to Christina may bring some answers about what happened at Kirkland Village and if it involved a gun. I wonder if she knows that Mezzacappa is a candidate for public office.

Christina also might be interested in how she and the other two nurses were portrayed in the Kirkland Village rant.

She won't be able to discuss personnel matters with me. I will email a link to Mezzacappa's ill-considered post.

Bless you Tricia. You and Jim keep fighting the good fight for all of us. Expose the corruption.

I find it hard to believe Mezzacappa had her gun taken from her by law enforcement. That would be a matter of public record. If I were told the NRA attorney advised her to stop carrying until her appeal of the loss of her LTCF was heard, that I might believe. Same goes for her blog. The one comment that stands out, anonymously and assumed to be from Mezzacappa, threatens, As for the speculation about WEFP being shut down all you haters will be in for a real shocker when it comes blazing back with avengence (sic).

I suspect that with a local election approaching somebody (possibly her lawyer) has convinced her that openly carrying and posting her hate, including death fantasies of others, doesn't help her appeal, or her chances at being elected. Her blog has been closed by her before and it doesn't remain closed for long. The increase of her comments on your blog demonstrate that she is extremely frustrated at not being able to write her manifesto of hate. It's doubtful she has the self-control to restrain herself from opening her blog to the public until after the November election. Something will occur that will trigger her anger enough for her to write about them - anyone from a grocery clerk, to Obama.

She hasn't changed and won't change until she finds, or is ordered to receive help with her mental health issues.

Mezzacappa may be without her primary but most "pistol packing mommas" don't walk around without a secondary option. That could mean a knife or hand grenade or even a syringe full of propofol. You think all these blogs about her make a difference to her ability to protect herself? No there will be a day of reckoning for the hate bloggers and sycophants but it may take time as the wheels of justice churn slowly.

My advice to all you anon cowards would be to stay as such, even Clinton Oxford is clever enough to avoid litigation as he uses a cute pen name. Once someone is wronged the way Mezzacappa was it's hard to say when payback will be rendered but trust and believe these matters will be solved in a court of law, with or without a lawyer.

Nobody has physically threatened Messykkkrappa. Most are afraid to go anywhere near her. She's simply the butt of some hilarious fun poking to which she regularly lends herself. Why so angry? Why the threats? Sticks and stones, you know.

Bernie, it would appear that she is wearing a S&W M&P inside that Kydex sheet holster,good stuff!

It's Karma for her. She began her blog over 2 years ago as a tool to insult, ridicule, and try to ruin people. Everything she has written is coming back to bite her in the ass. That blog of hers has ruined her own reputation and done nothing but create deserved sympathy for those she has attacked. All of it created by herself. Employment, relationships, elections, etc., fail because her darkest thoughts are expressed in her writings and people can find her blog pretty easily. Not to mention her troubles with the law, combined with her numerous rants about the pleasure she would find in taking a life.

Kirkand Village and the 3 nurses have a right to defend themselves and their reputations. Give them the option of posting their comments on LVR, even if done anonymously.

So you're going to waste even MORE of my money with trivial bullshit lawsuits, Mezzacappa?

Get over yourself.

Tricia is the hate blogger. And the wheels of justice are going to roll slowly over her - just like they rolled over convict Jim Gregory and their child rapist friend.

Edgar,

I must admit that I am seriously considering giving you a "D" this semester.

Sherlock Holmes did not get his impressive credentials by going into anaphalaxis, and calling in the citizenry for assistance.

All of the clues have been provided to you. My oh my, you must be deteriorating inside and out.

With every clue you need staring you in the face, I am thoroughly disappointed that you have failed to crack the story.

I suggest you collect your thoughts, quietly and carefully, then start the investigation all over again.

"Nobody has physically threatened Messykkkrappa."

That is true. She has been severely criticized but not threatened. Threats of violence are Tricia's thing. The only one openly carrying a gun as an intimidation device is Tricia. The only one who threatened (multiple times) to shoot Bernie in the head was Tricia. I'm surprised that he hasn't insisted that she be prosecuted for her repeated threats on his life. At the very least it is harassment, but more likely it is stalking or terroristic threats.

She has taken down her blog again.

I'm not sure how Kirkland Village, or her gun, fits into this equation, but Tricia Mezzacappa's employment problems have been ongoing for some time.

She has no one to blame but herself, although she thinks others are at fault and are part of a grand conspiracy. On April 11, 2013, Mezzacappa filed a lawsuit against The Express-Times, accusing the newspaper of assassinating her character and preventing her from "finding fruitful employment." She had no lawyer. She drafted and filed the complaint herself.

She said in the lawsuit that The ET's reporting of her criminal charges in August 2012 caused her to be terminated from an unspecified nursing home job on September 26, 2012. She was convicted of disorderly conduct in November for threats she made at the West Easton Borough Hall.

In her lawsuit, Mezzacappa said she complained to editor Jim Deegan in April 2013 after an unidentified prospective employer revoked an offer for "a very well paying parttime nursing job" on March 29, 2013. She complained to Deegan that "due to the bad press she is being 'convicted by slanted journalism' in an era where google searches have become the new tool for employers." She told Deegan "the newspaper is constantly publishing non-news about her, and associating her name with criminal conduct, making it impossible to pursue her field of nursing." Her lawsuit quoted Deegan as responding: "I could care less if you think the newspaper is ruining your life, and stop threatening me with lawsuits."

She alleges in her complaint that The ET is retaliating against her because: 1) She supported "keeping Gracedale in county hands," and 2) She is "an avid Republican in favor of the Second Amendment right to bear arms," and 3) "She is in disagreement with the management and operations of West Easton Borough and its elected Council," and 4) "She dumped Bernie O'Hare in 2011."

Tricia, do you realize that the hateful, harassing and hurtful "non-news" you publish about other people on your ridiculous blog also shows up in google searches and has an impact on their lives? Probably not because you're too self-centered.

Bernie, remember my post on Marine Corps Brigs? This jail system is too 'soft' .This E-Mail crap between a person who demonstrated CONTEMPT for a JUDGE's order gets to E-Mail his f397king girlfriend? This is bullshit, This is why we have repeat customers in our prison ,they are not impressed!I would not allow any of this crap to exist and I would not make any thing comfortable . This will dis- insensitive coming back in front of a Judge for disobedience of a court order. Without RULES we have civil dissidence ,that leads to complete disruption of ORDER.How much does this crap cost us?

Dear Mr. Stoffa,

I am concerned about the Message being sent to Society with James Gregory's current and continued violation's of his No Contact/ Protection From Abuse Court Order, from Northampton County Prison, as reported in the Media.

Tricia Mezzacappa, via the Inmate Telephone System @ Northampton County Prison, is allowing James Gregory Perm Id# 131809 to defiantly violate a Court Order . If he/she can can do it, without consequence, other's shall think they can too.

You are seeing the sign-in page because you are signed out of your Google account, or aren't registered with them. Once you sign in you'll then be taken to her blog page that tells you her blog is by "invitation only," which means she's made it private through her blog settings.
