I've avoided writing about West Easton's Tricia Mezzacappa for some time. Yes, I've finally collected in my defamation suit against her, but this story has nothing to do with me. It's about her most recent antics as Constable cRaZy.
Last November, Mezzacappa was running for West Easton Borough Council, a seat she had to know she'd never win. But she had a back-up plan. She and nine of her friends wrote her in as Constable. According to the Pa. Comm'n on Crime and Delinquency, she's certified, too, but thankfully, not to carry a firearm.
Constables serve papers for the minor judiciary and also maintain security at the polling place. But aside from working the polls in West Easton, I doubt any magisterial district judge in his right mind would give her any work.
In May, she was in front of West Easton Borough Council, and basically offered her services in having cars towed during snowstorms and handing out tickets. This is not what constables do, and West Easton passed, especially since she's suing them again.
Undeterred, she went out and got herself a uniform and even bought handcuffs.
Now she is taking it upon herself to scare the shit out of her neighbors.
Years ago, she was unhappy when Easton police refused to arrest a cabbie who beeped his horn while waiting for one of her neighbors> That neighbor also had the misfortune of being black. Both the neighbor and the cabbie told a police officer that Mezzacappa had used the word "nigger" in describing her neighbors. Mezzacappa told the police to do something, or she'd have Easton police removed once she got elected to Council.
Easton police no longer cover West Easton. Now Mezzacappa thinks she can enforce the law herself. After all, she's a constable.
As you can see below, she recently issued a warning to some poor bastard who was supposedly playing his car radio too loudly. Noting that she has the power to arrest for breaches of the peace, she warns that any further infractions "will result in actions being taken against those persons who fail to abide by this warning."
Mezzacappa also provided a copy of this warning to West Easton.
This is a perversion of a constable's role, as Mezzacappa will soon learn.
The guy should have told her he's a Trump supporter. As you might have guessed, she's a huge fan of The Donald, and led the Trump train in Pen Argyl's Labor Day parade, as you can see above.
