The ironic part of this whole thing is that all of the crap this guy has done he got convicted of this petty shit. I feel sorry for his family not him.
His family is white trash just like him. 1 of the deputy's told me that his family had to be removed from the courtroom several times for trying to intimidate witnesses, yelling out loud and acting like protesters.
Attended trial whole time

This is not true at all! The family was very respectable. They sat in the front row the whole time. There was not one family member removed from the courtroom at any time. It is funny how Mr.Missig had some of the most respectable police officers in Allegheny County testify on his behalf. As a matter of fact, throught out the course of the trial, many officers including several from the West Mifflin Police Department sat with the family. I'm wondering if the jury was even paying attention. Several times, a few were checking the backs of their eye lids. Mr. Missig and his so called "white trash family" are still respected by the good people of the community. This includes myself

For "Citizen" to write such blantant lies totally negates any of his comment - Yes, Mr. Missig and his family are held in high regard by many in the community - Not by the drug dealers he had helped arrest - but by the taxpaying working citizens.
An innocent man does not plead guilt to charges that are false - this isn't arrogance this is beleiving in the truth ultimately being redemption.
"Citizen" comments about the family are the farthest thing from the truth - There were no outbursts, no acting like protestor and no one removed from the court the entire trial - as intimidation - none - the family was truely respectful and supportive.
No deputy told "citizen" the things he is saying.
I wonder why "citizen" has such an interest in posting such negative remark - obviously there must be some history with the police. What were you arrested for? or are you too cowardly to say? How much computertime are inmates allowed?

You must be joking "some of the most respected officers in allegheny county". thats not the word around town about these cops. And believe me there was not several WM officers at the trial, missig had 2-3 friends in the whole department. His own brother in law didnt even show up for most of the trial. They may have stopped in just out of interest but thats it. Believe me he is not well liked in the community either, who the heck would want to live next to a convict?

He was not singled out. The State police and FBI did a joint investigation. This is what they foun during the 4 year investigation. The police chief was stealing everything, drugs, guns, you name it. The police chief just got out of jail and got caught violating his supervised release
Then why did the FBI guy disappear before the trial started!!!!!

What ever happened to honest Police?

Where there is smoke, there is fire,

These individuals will be judged as they pass through the gates of HELL.

Then they can tell their lies and someone will believe them.
