FRACKVILLE, Pa. — A foul-mouthed former police chief whose incendiary videos on guns and liberals led to his suspension and departure said Monday his nascent reality TV show could feature a militia-style group he started last month.

Speaking at a news conference in his attorney’s office, former Gilberton Chief Mark Kessler said the group, called 3 Percent Boots on the Ground, already has a “few thousand” members in chapters around the country.

The group will train monthly and require members, who are vetted by Kessler, to supply their own fatigues, combat boots, body armor, sidearms and military-style rifles. Members will attain ranks like private, lieutenant and colonel.

“Basically it’s just a group of people who believe in the country, the Constitution, and what our founding fathers enacted,” said Kessler, 42.
