Gay-Bashing Suspect Tweeted Thanks to Police Chief Dad for Special Treatment

Her big mouth is all over Twitter.

Update: Police have released mugshots of the Center City gay-bashing defendants.


As more details emerge about the arrests in the Center City gay-bashing case, we’re learning a lot about the defendants, especially Bucks County’s Kathryn Knott, who, for whatever reason, still hasn’t deactivated her awful Twitter account.

Knott is the subject of a Storify called “Meet #PhillyHateCrime Defendant Kathryn Knott.” It catalogs some of the terrible things that Knott has said on social media.

But one tweet they didn’t include suggests that Knott may have gotten special treatment in a 2012 road incident thanks to her dad, who just happens to be Chalfont Township Police Chief Karl Knott. (Note: At the time of the tweets, Knott was on the Abington Township police force.)

She also says he let her kick down a door in a raid:

And more fun with dad:

Chief Knott was not immediately available for comment.
