Our neighborhood has always been quiet and peaceful, that is until Adam Dickerson and Claire Dougherty moved in. Now from Wed to Sunday all there is is drug dealing and people in and out 24 hours a day. These people who invade our neighborhood to buy drugs leave litter everywhere, urinate against and in between our homes. We have been awaken by loud voices, running automobiles and loud music up until 5am. Our neighbors are harassed by them and people are actually leaving their homes on the weekends now to be safe. Where is this happening you ask right here in Kennedy Township. Call the police you say, they have been called, called and called again. The couple mentioned above had open arrest warrants, police let them go, let their small children home alone and have been caught but let go and the poor children are given back, or I meant to say never taken from them. Tonight we watched as always a group of 20 something year old guys go between the their house and their neighbors. This is where most of the drugs deals take place, but usally it happens right at the curb under the street light. Tonight their next door neighbor came out to see what was gong on and was almost jumped. All the guys took off before the cops got there including Adam who more than likely has a warranty against him. The Police if thats what you want to call them showed up never took report never radioed in who was involved. One police officer took off after Adam and brought him back but kept him across the street. The officer asked him what had happened and he told them he didnt know what happened that he was outside and the neighbor came out with a bat. When asked about the other guys he said I didnt know them they were just driving by and stopped. The Officer said oh ok Adam then go ahead home...... REALLY. We now hear that a family member of Adams is a police officer and that is why his name is never braodcast over the scanner and he is free to do whatever he wants. Their home is in the 1200 block of Pine Hollow rd. Mark my words something very bad is going to happen here and I am sure they will walk away scott free. So take my advice and dont depend on the Kennedy Township Police cause like us they will most definately let you down

If i were you and this occurs as often as you say,then i would start videotaping it an contact the d.e.a.. problem is with alot of drug dealers that are on the low end of the spectrum, they very rarely get arrested because they become informants (not saying this is the case but that could be a reason it occurs). I too live in kennedy but luckily haven't had to contact the police for something like this. Also i would go up to the police station and talk to the chief. Demand to be heard, there's always a higher up. Did these people buy the house or are they renting? IF they are renting contact the landlord that you feel this is occuring. It's a shame that drugs continue to ruin lives and neighborhoods. Hopefully something happens to help you out...

Sad, also, police are only after dealers, don't do anything to the users, users just get off on a probation and continue to use. So creates a constant business for the dealers.
Knowing a household is sheltering two addicts in Kennedy and allowing the activity to continue just because they feel its better they are safer in there home rather on the streets. Shows the idiocy some people are, to justify in there own minds. Guess the parents doing marijuana doesn't help also.
If parents and police don't work together, and get the justice system on the right methods of dealing with Heroin addicts, these problems are going to increase in nice rural areas.
Methods to get help for an addict is ridicules, having known one trying to get help. The insurance or ways to get help is critical, needs to be fast. or they give up and continue using. Death results in time, and many crimes with many other innocent people getting caught up by there manipulations.

Well, the drugs are flowing again from 1219 Pine Hollow rd. When the neighbors seemed to have had enough they laid low for a month but man are they dealing now. two and three cars at a time sitting and running waiting for their drugs. They have something on the windows that doesnt omit any light so it never looks like anyone is home. Called Kennedy police and of course it goes though allegeheny co 911 and by the time the police DRIVE by everything is dark. Two of the neighbors have mounted video cameras and other are taking pictures of license plates. It is really sad that now we are thinking of moving all because the police has let us down time after time. I have notified a friend who is a county sheriff and he put me in contact with the drug task force but they too are after bigger fish i fear. Just hope that Adam Dickerson or Claire dougherty never move into your neighborhood. Wheres Charles Bronson when you need him.

snafu, the person you are talking about has imediate family member who is a stowe police officer who has threatened others is stowe against pressing any charges against adam. it is a pretty bad world when the criminal is being protected by the very people who are there to protect you. adam has been run out of different places in stowe for the same concerns that you have. im saying watch your back and if you have a family watch their backs because this officer will stop at nothing to protect this scumbag adam and his lowlife scumbag drug dealing friends, maybe this officer is involved and makes money from their drug dealing business who knows. You must get proof and go outside your township for help. good luck

by posting these peoples names and address, you have opened yourself up to being sued. if they were smart, they will sue you for everything you own, then, when you are homless you can get away from them.
and if they want a good lawyer i will post it for them.
nosey neighbors are the WORST kind of people and for you to say because hes related to a cop they wont do anything is absurd. maybe the cops know what kind of people you are and want YOU out.

No, I'm a lawyer that will love to represent them for defamation of character and harassment
Unless you have 100% proof of the things you say, you can be held liable for your words.
Selling drugs or no is not the point
The point is you can not go to a web site and post names and addresses
Do the research and figure it out

So. There was a homicide in the Rocks yesterday. Let me ask you this. Besides earlier this summer, when was the last time you heard of a murder ot violent crime in Kennedy Township? You should be thankful that you live in a nice low crime community.

For all you legal geniuses out there that are criticizing the Kennedy P.D.. First off, if you're so certain that all these drug deals are going down, get license plate numbers, descriptions of the vehicles and occupants, times and dates. Then take them to the Chief. He's a Township resident. He doesn't want drugs or drug dealer in the Township anymore than you do. And, dont assume that nothing is being done. Drug investigations take time ( if the Police have the information). If you think the Police are doing a sub par job, go to the next commissioners meeting and express your opinion instead of venting on here.

Disrespectful. Pulled my fiancée and I out of the car and searched us and took him to JAIL over HIS OWN PERSXRIPTION OF MEDS. Then I begged them not to tow the car, as we are working citizens with bills to pay, and that we just lived up the street and my father could get it. But there was an officer who had all tattoos on him and was being EXTREMELY DIFFICULT AND RUDE. I asked him please what why going on and why he was taking my boy friend to jail and he said you get the fuck away or I'll arrest u too bitch. After we DID NOTHING. I work the night shift and was Kaye's back in the front seat waiting for my fiancée to get us cigs and something to drink and while he was in the the manager of the bp by the hospital WHO IS AM ASSHOLE TO thought my fiancée was shop lifting.... Because he was looking at the sun glasses "for too long" the Kennedy police aren't there to serve and protect anyone.. They are there for they're own benefit to make it look like they are helping bUT THEY ARE NOT in stead of asking us what was going on they thought we were just druggies but we are not! There are murders and rapist and child molesters out there but the police want to mess with they people who actually aren't doing any thing !!!!

I feel the need to comment on this, as I was at this particular store when this incident happened and watched the whole thing unfold . This happened at the BP on Heckel Rd sometime during the morning. You're fiancé came into the store and looked extremely high on something. He kept nodding off and stumbling into display cases which is probably why the police were called. I'm not saying he is a druggie, I'm no expert on that, but he sure looked high to me.

As for that officer that was yelling at you, you brought that on yourself. I can't speak as to what they may have arrested you're fiancé for as I wasn't close enough to see that. I did however hear you screaming in protest about you're vehicle being towed. I also heard a cop from Stowe telling you that neither of you had a valid license to drive which is why they were towing you're vehicle. You, however, kept yelling and screaming at them and pacing aimlessly around the busy parking lot. The Kennedy officer did scream at you because you would not stop interfering with their arrest. You kept approaching them in a loud and aggressive manner and were also being disorderly. He also told you several times to leave and you refused. I also remember you being passed out in the car and you didn't look like you were in any condition to drive either. You're lucky that you didn't get arrested in my opinion.

Nevertheless, I feel that those officers did the right thing. I did not see which one of you were driving, but one of you made the decision to drive that morning without a license. You got caught and towing you're car prevented two unlicensed (and possibly impaired) drivers from being on the road that day which I appreciate. As a Kennedy Township resident I have had nothing but pleasant interactions with our police force and I feel that they acted appropriately in this situation.
