Mezzacappa Alert: Pistol Packin' Momma in Downtown Bethlehem


Attention-seeker Tricia Mezzacappa has been spotted in downtown Bethlehem, open carrying a firearm. I've already received two calls.

Updated Friday, 1:30 AM: Mezzacappa was confronted by some poor soul at this event. Here's how she explains it.
I was unlawfully accosted and illegally detained by some punk in a yellow shirt and long hair, standing next to that ghoulish wacko Dana Grube who was taking photos for the Bethlehem Press. In the presence of Grube , who was there to harass me, the punk said that I was unlawfully carrying a firearm without a license.

Tempted, (but kept my mouth shut and left) I had a fleeing [sic] thought to show this ass what unlawful is, in regard to a firearm, like pistol whipping his face bloody and unrecognizable . Just the type of activity that people like rapist and animal abuser Bernie O'Hare so desperately want, so that I will never be able to own or carry one again.

I hope the fat fuck pops an anneurism [sic]and drops dead in that one room Nazareth hovel
Her criticism of Dana Grubb (not Grube) tells me she thinks he is the one who snapped her picture and sent it to me. He's not. The picture below, which includes her with Dana in front of her, taking pictures, should make that clear.

Mezzacappa does have the right to open carry. But a license is required for "carrying a firearm concealed on or about one's person or in a vehicle throughout this Commonwealth." It makes no difference whether it is loaded. There are some common-sense exceptions to this rule, like hunting or going to a gun show. But there's no hunting, firing ranges or gun shows at Payrow Plaza. She broke the law.

How paranoid is she that she feels the need to open carry on the streets of tranquil Bethlehem? Just what i want my kids to see as they walk down the block on July 4. What an idiot!

Anonymous said...

She is probably carrying for reasons other then for protection. May it be political attention or just plain attention or aggravating the powers that be who knows?

Bottom line is that unless she is doing illegally she has the right to do it.

Do I think she should be in possession of a firearm or weapon...No...I truly think her mental stability should be tested by a doctor and firearms taken away for good.

BUT...until that comes we just have to wait and pray.

If she is in the company of
Gregory and carrying, they should be arrested.

It may be legal to open carry a firearm in Pennsylvania. It is not legal to transport the firearm in a vehicle without a license to carry, with limited exceptions. Mezzacappa's license to carry firearms was revoked several months ago by Sheriff Miller. So how did she get from West Easton to Bethlehem? Did she walk or did she and her firearm get there in a vehicle? Does one of the limited exceptions apply? Given this woman's recent convictions for disorderly conduct and harassment and the revocation of her LTCF,these are questions law enforcement should be asking in the interest of public safety.

"Bottom line is that unless she is doing illegally she has the right to do it."

I do not dispute she has the right to open carry, but she does not have a right to transport any firearm, loaded or unloaded, in a compartment or not, without first having a LTCF. She does not have one. She broke the law.

Bernie O'Hare said...

"She is probably carrying for reasons other then for protection. "

Agreed. She suffers from a histrionic personality disorder, and does what she can to draw attention to herself.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Trioia Mezzacappa, Open carry is legal. Driving with a gun is not, unless you have a LTCF. You don't write the laws. You will be arrested, sooner or later.

Clinton Oxford said...

Ms. Mezzacappa's mental instability renders her unfit to handle firearms or hold a Nursing License, which may be revoked after filing a proper complaint. It is a Public Safety Issue.

Anonymous said...

Gregory can't transport it either. I don't think he can even have a firearm due to his PFA and also his criminal conviction.

Clinton Oxford said...

The conditions of his supervision does prohibit association with certain individuals and activities.
His co-conspiritor T.Mezz, may be one of them. A simple phone call to his P.O. is all it takes.

First of all..."Anonymous 8:01pm"-there were no cops there...that's the beauty of Bethlehem -we are a very safe city and don't need cops at every gathering,although if we continue to have wackadoodles running around like Calamity Jane,that may all change. Second of all,Dana did not take that picture. I took that picture because I thought it was a beautiful ceremony and I love my city. That woman showed up so she could start a little controversy - and it didn't work. No one talked to her or even nodded their head towards her. She's not from Bethlehem,she wasn't part of the program,so she didn't need to be there. She's a nut!,and now that I know she can't transport a vehicle-next time I see her I'm calling the cops myself...so my advice to Calamity Jane-stay out of Bethlehem!!!!

Blog Mentor, We learned from Tricia herself that she was harassed by Grubb and some fellow in a yellow shirt. She nearly had to pistol whip them both. She stopped traffic to get directions to main Street, with her gun in a holster. She bothered people enough that I have heard from three people at this event. One was worried she might act out. Another snapped her picture. The comments here indicate most people were concerned.

She does have a right to open carry, but has no right to transport that gun in a vehicle. She broke the law, and will eventually be arrested.

When a person openly carries a firearm, even if done lawfully, that person should expect stares and possibly some questions and comments. If the firearms carrier is going to lash out and think, even momentarily, about "pistol whipping" someone's face "bloody and unrecognizable" that's scary. The fact that she put her violent thought in writing and published it online is even scarier.

Anonymous said...

Just read the latest Gregory/Mezza comments on WEF. Very sad. they are attacking Jerry, Ron and Jen Sletvold. Gregory wants all to show up at his hearing. Why? Who knows. he wants them to show their support of a convicted woman abuser.

He needs to screw his head on and apologize to these people. he then must accept responsibility for his life and grow up.

doubt that will happen. At 60 years of age, he has failed marriage's, failed jobs and now a criminal record. Yet he believes everyone else is wrong.

He and Mezza are very disturbed people. Also dangerous and unstable.

Bernie O'Hare @ 3:16 PM: I don't know if Tricia Mezzacappa has a histrionic personality disorder. But, by her own admission, Mezzacappa is taking controlled substances for an anxiety condition. She informed the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas of her mental status and opined that due to the potency of her meds she would be "unfit" to defend herself in a pending lawsuit. Those are assertions she made in a public court filing.

Bingo. Dana Grubb, who she has never met, was there to film the event for the Beth Press. He was not there to film her or harass her, as she claims. From whayt I have been told, he did not interact with her in any way.

The other fellow, from what I've been told, was actually supportive. That's what bothers me. She talks about pistol whipping some guy who just asked her about her gun. Imagine what she would do to someone who confronted her.

She is not dealing with reality, but some fantasy world, imagining slights that have not occurred, is fantasizing about violent acts, and is walking around Bethlehem's children with a gun.

Next time the young woman he harassed at the Sands will testify. he is toast as well as a dumb ass.

Jim gregory has to wake up to the reality of life and face up to the fact that all of what is happening now is due to his conduct and not anyone else. He can't accept that simple fact that he is in control of his future, not Sletvold, not Heckman, not Seyfried, not zito, not callahan, not spadoni, non Nina, not Ohare, not mezzacappa, nor anyone else. He alone is the single major issue that he is in the predicament that he is in and no one else. He can't accept that. He is in front of a judge because he violated court orders. No one can help him with that. Right now he is in front of the courts for "contempt". Only he knows what he has done and if he is in contempt or not in contempt. Had he kept his mouth shut and not responded on your blog he would not have been charged with contempt. He was founf guilty for his comments on your blog. This is truly a sad story of a mentally ill person in need of help.

I would not doubt if he will have another contempt charge to deal with at some point this week. The harassment and intimidation is clearly continuing. He should be so ashamed and embarrassed by his actions; however, he seems to think he is well respected in the community and everyone supports him. The only things I see are a PFA, contempt charges, accusations of videotaping, a parole officer, a possibility of jail time if he continues to be in contempt, possibly no job, no labor council officer position, etc. Does he call this winning?

Anonymous said...

The latest entry on the WEF is a disgusting attack on the victim. Opening up very personal claims and situations. I believe she has a case against Gregory and Mezzacappa.


They are way over the line in intimadating and attacking this young woman. They are openly accusing her of prostitution. They are claiming the Mayor and DA are clients. They have accused Judge Zito of impropriety because of his family. Enough is enough, this has to stop. This young woman is not a public figure and deserves protection from this. She must be terrified. The DA needs to step in before it is too late.

Anonymous said...

Prediction:

In less than 30 days Mezzacappa will be charged with Harassment... again. This time as a co-conspirator with Gregory, since it is her blog that is displaying stories and comments. Gregory is found guilty of violating his parole. How freak'n stupid can two people be?

Odds on Defense Arguments (Pro Se)
2-1: O'Hare did it.
2-1: "Opinions" are protected under 1st Amend.
3-1: Blog Was Hacked
3-1: Home was broken into and computer used by someone else.
1000-1: Unfit to stand trial due to mental condition.
Note: No bets will be taken that Mezzacappa or Gregory cuts a deal to roll over on the other.

Is Bernie O'Hare actually Bill White?

Bernie O'Hare is actually, "The Great Lin Choi Phoy." The Chinese-American, "Man of 1000 Disguises" who was often hired by world leaders as a double. He gained notoriety when he was recruited from Barnum and Bailey by the NSA and successfully impersonated President Obama at numerous campaign stops in 2012. It's believed he was able to infiltrate and stop the terrorist organization, "Dwarfs For Jihad" by tying his feet to the back of his legs, wearing baggy pants and walking on his knees for 6 months. *The CIA claims no knowledge of his assistance in breaking up that terrorist organization.

Bernie O'Hare said...

The terrorist columnist is on their hate list bc of a piece published yesterday, excoriating both Gregory AND Mezzacappa. Thus far, it is only available on hard copy. Thousands are flocking to the news stands and spending $2.50 for the "early edition" Sunday column. I understand just about every household in West Easton has a copy, along with every woman within a 100-mile radius of Bethlehem. When it goes online, I'll link to it.

Bernie, at 5:26 -- I fear that someone is going to get hurt before this is all over. The good news is that it will not likely be an innocent bystander, or an associate of either of this pair -- it very likely will be either Mr. JG or Ms. TM. Or both. Voluntary close association with these types can be dangerous to one's health and well-being.

Bottomline... she needs a LTCF to get the pistol to City property if she went by car, train, bus or any vehicle... I think even a bicycle. If she walked, that is permissible. Too bad a city officer did not see her get into a car and then ask to see her LTCF. Perhaps she has one? Perhaps she has one from another State that has reciprocity with PA.
