If there has been any question about the quality and character of John Giduck and John “Andy” Anderson’s Archangel Group, The arrest of Archangel Group consultant Ernie Manerchia likely answers any questions.  Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy…

Ernest Manerchia, a police officer and SWAT team member in Chester, Delaware County, has been charged with aggravated assault and related offenses for allegedly slapping and strangling his wife, authorities announced today.

Manerchia, 56, who lives in Pocopson Township, Chester County, was initially released on $7,500 bail and ordered to surrender all his firearms and stay away from his wife. He turned over 45 guns, but state police later learned that he’d secretly kept other guns and had returned to his house to confront his wife. His bail was then revoked and set at $350,000.

“A marriage license is not permission to abuse your wife,” said Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan. “Regardless of where you are from or what you do for a living, the criminal laws against domestic violence apply to you. Nobody is above the law.”


Ernie finally shows his true colors. Perhaps Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan does not know this but Ernie Manerchia allegedly has threatened people before:

You got no idea what a good cop is you rookie! You stick with the group you’re with and you’ll find out the hard way!

Now that John Giduck buddy, Archangel Group consultant, and Chester PA Police Commissioner Joseph Bail seems to have lost control of his closest friends , authorities need to investigate violations of the PA State Ethics Act as well.

Contacted Monday evening regarding Manerchia’s official employment status following his arrest, Chester Police Commissioner Joseph Bail Jr. said, “It’s a personnel matter. I’m not permitted to discuss it.”


Funny.  Joe Bail seems to discuss EVERY other crime in his area.  Like they say, no one is above the law.  Remember that Joe Bail is also being sued for defamation. I’d go so far as to say that given the details of Joe Bail’s defamation case (linked to in the “see also” section below), that a reasonable person might say that there could be a history of intimidation attempts with the the upper levels of the Chester PA police department.

Strangely, these are the people that surround John Giduck who others like Dave Grossman continue to strongly support.

I’ll assume that Ernie is no longer available to vouch for John Giduck’s false credentials.
