I 'd like to ask Mayor Nutter and Police Commissioner Ramsey why we're paying for all the "free taxpayer" gas that's being wasted on the patrol vehicles that are parked, engines running day and night, outside of Officer Frank Tepper's home?

Wouldn't it be cheaper for the city to hold him in a jail cell like they do all other suspected criminals until his trial for shooting Billy Panas? They say life's not fair - well, apparently neither is the Philadelphia justice system.

Badge or no badge, we are all taught right from wrong.
