Ya super great town to rob everyone . Lets read that craftonpolice.org again. 9 officers. Heck no. 8 now, and 2 out on sick leave, and 2 including their so called Chief on vacation. My math adds that up to 4 officers working. WOW I think I will spend my time in sunny Crafton, the town that loves everyone.

sounds to me that Mr Smith and Mr or Mrs Joker are a bit upset by the Mayor, the Chief, and by Dan C.. Craftons Stewart Machine seems to need a little more oil. Now maybe the Mayor will draft one of her community love letters. Skate on kids, you can't do 40 MPH. Long Live DAVID HALL

DUMBEST COMMENT FROM A BREEDEN SUPPORTER!

Oops, you're underage.
Sorry, if you're into skateboarding, you're probably a pre-teen and you couldn't get your free shot of Banker's Club at that dive around the corner from Big Daddy's.
Instead, go get your free donut.....and remember, skateboarding on a state highway is illegal and so is fleeing a hit-and-run.

Jeezus H. Khryst, are these morons that brainless?

With so few law enforcement personal in Crafton, Pa. it should be riddled with crime. Does all the crime get hidden form the papers? I read in these posts how corrupt things are in Crafton. One family seems to be getting trashed on a daily bases. Why hasn't the federal government been notified to investigate ? Since that did not happen one would think it is just one persons mission in life to trash others ?

Sounds like you sure feel the need to defend the Mayor and Chief. Maybe you are the kiss ass Mayor of Crafton writing on this blog.We all know how chummy you get with the chief.In fact people saw the two of YOU together...when you BOTH THOUGHT you weren't seen.Many people in the community liked Donnie Breeden....Maybe you have it out for him simply because he was well liked..AND YOU AREN'T. Maybe you feel the need to say what you can here...lets face it....You may NOT be Mayor for very much longer. YOU'RE A JOKE!Funny how you're trying to switch the attention anytime someone has something to say about you....Mayor. LOL

Donnie Breeden won his civil service hearing years ago...because ...he was UNFAIRLY treated.Thats why he won.Pissed the Chief off because the one officer that wouldn't put up with his sh*$ won a civil service hearing.The Mayor and Chief have had a thing for many years.They both cheat! Oh...and in case you haven't noticed Donnie Breeden DOES have a degree in Criminology...so...OBVIOUSLY he earned his job on HIS OWN MERIT!

Well, a degree in Criminology? IUP, correct?
That actually hurts his cause.
Not that he has a degree in Criminology or that it's from IUP, but it will makes his Bachelor's look like a degree in CRIMINALITY in front of a jury.
It reminds me of an old TV program from the late 1960s starring Robert Wagner.
"It Takes a Thief".

Well, I'm sure that IUP degree also carries more weight than, let's say an education acquired at Quantico?
Good job, LOL, please keep posting.

Your statement makes you sound like an idiot...it doesn't make sense!!
There are a select few people on topix who Are idiots, others may be good people and they have made good points... I am sure that most people on this Crafton form know that anything I say has nothing to do with them... I'm just refering to the idiots who hang and party with the "cop" and try to defend his "good name".

Yes! Give all the kids their skateboards back! Then when they surf into Big Daddy's parking lot, fall down and crack their skulls open - their parents can sue his ass off. Maybe they their lawyers can even get their hands on part of the nice big house his ex-wife gets to live in, too! Great divorce settlement there. Way better than his dingy apartment!
"Big Daddy" isn't too smart :(

Skateboard on kids - and don't worry about those helmets - you don't need them!

To answer your question "Yougonow" it gets bumped to the State AG office first since this particular crime that is the subject here on Topix did not occur with a Fed employee, or on Fed property or across state lines.
But hey, you never know, considering the co-conspiracy, maybe it has already?
Maybe it has.
If you're talking about the general lunacy of the perp's defenders here, you're correct. Maybe a RICO would be a good idea.
We'll just have to wait for the Pre-Trial Conference to see how the perp pleads. I don't see that happening before 2010.

crafton police must really suck at everything,, I went past the 7-11 gas station and it was closed at night due to robbery..:(
For those that dont know the area .. Crafton police are only 2 doors over..
I really never had any problems there,, ran a light or 2 and had gotten a warning..
