They don't want you to know which police officers are corrupt in McKeesport. You have to wait until one steals your house key, makes a copy and enters illegally at will. They forged the judges name in McKeesport, you can't trust them! What else or how far will they go? Everyone already claims they got away with murder and killed young, pregnant Kimberly Krimn. That's why you'll never see a full forensic new technology investigation. They don't want one.

Someone close to the city told Krimms mother they knew who did it. They knew they were close to the city. It wasn't anyone else but a officer according to very credible sources.

Even other police departments make fun of the McKeesport police for being so corrupt and crooked. It's common knowledge, as they say.

Just ask anyone all over PA., McKeesport is on the map for negativity by its politicians. The city solicitor is a 2x DUI scofflaw in city hall and rent free.

I just asked everyone all over the state,like you suggested,and very few made reference to Mck. A few mentioned York and Oil City but only one guy living on 32nd St. mentioned any negativity. You need to re-poll your sources.

These police are still on duty in McKeesport. Do they work for UPMC McKeesport by contract with McKeesport? You cannot trust them because they were willing to forge judges names, lie about pay and time they never worked, cheating the public.

John Jason Elash, with 2 DUI pleadings of guilty to date, is "head of the law department" basically, the McKeesport police. He's lied on matters of law on several occasions and failed to keep promises of record keeping. He failed to keep appointments on matters of public interest, and could care less about anyone else.

John Jason Elash has a conduct clause added to his service contract agreement with McKeesport. His conduct has been noted as deplorable with citizens and employers that ousted him.

McKeesport is now financially in trouble, with its surplus funding drawn by the mayor Cherepko under Elash advice to do so.

Everyone knows McKeesport is failing and has indictments handed down. Else your claiming several Pittsburgh news channels are without viewers. Ridiculous claim from McKeesport police, they lie at the drop of a hat.
http://www.wpxi.com/news/news/local/ag-16-cha...

Fist bump. Right McKeesport police? Whenever you manipulate the truth to get the desired result, someone angry, break laws your supposed to uphold etc. it's a fist bump for the McKeesport police! This includes said over the emergency scanners! The McKeesport police even whistle music, parade wins for sports games over emergency scanners! They are criminal, and could care less at emergency service calls blocked by police fun games over energency services. The Steelers have 6 losses by the way, got 6, losses that is? Fist bump!

Gergely is toast. You can tell by the questions the reporter is asking that she is setting him up to respond to the same questions in the near future; probably right after he is indicted.

Notice the cavalier attitude he displays when he answers that he keeps getting elected.

'We're trying to make a comeback,' Mon Valley mayor ...- WTAE
May 29, 2013 - Rick Saccone, R-39th District, said constituents all across the state voice the same concerns.

Cherepko said, "Will Fifth Avenue be the way it used to, with shoulder-to-shoulder businesses? The reality of that is no."

(Until the recent crisis, the McKeesport plan was to remain depressed to receive government handout money. Since the handout begging failed, they need to harass McKeesport council president Daryl Segina. They have to do something themselves. The flyover ramp, not plural is graded improperly. Several large businesses pulled out after it was made. The properties are part of a corrupt area.)
http://www.post-gazette.com/attachment/2013/1...

(Letting McKeesport city solicitor John Jason Elash do whatever he wants is harmful to McKeesport.)

"When I go to Harrisburg and I talk to everyone about the depressed state of the Mon Valley, the rest of the state says,'We're depressed too. Why should we fund you?'" Saccone said.

No specific plans of funding were outlined at the hearing on Wednesday.

<quoted text>Jimmy Brewster, like so many scoundrels in government is like a dead fish in the water waiting to be washed away never to be heard of again. What federal prison he'll end up in is anyone's guess.

Quite frankly, I'm more concerned about restoring the Mob Valley to a better time and place. My vision is a Synchronized Crime Museum with a main tourist attraction in McKeesport. From there visitors will tour Mob Valley starting with Serra Catholic, possibly Bill Scully's home, Zappala Crime Family, Union Cemetery in New Kensington, UPMC, etc.

It will also serve as a research center for students from all over the world who want to study Synchronized Crime.

My goal was never to destroy lives, but to rid the area of as many criminals as possible.

Once the feds come in you simply don't get rid of them. They will leave on their terms.

There's a new sheriff in town an he's not on the Zappala payroll.
Mike f. your such a piss poor excuse for a man.... Waaah waaaah waaaah. With your constant whining and complaining, grow a set and do something about it. Look in the mirror , for people like you that's where it always starts. The constant blaming others.

Mr. Ference although I do not share your opinions some of the time, I certainly commend you for your persist and your postings on Mon Valley corruption and other important matters.

Your persistence and logic are always welled supported by information mined or new articles originated by others. This is supper evidence to support your allegations.

Your postings keep corrupt individuals on their toes like kissing their tall mistresses.

Above all, how anyone not agree and see that you are a real man who has the courage and commitment to provide your legal name on Topix? I recall one time you even published your home address. Would your critics be willing to reveal their legal name like you do everytime?

You have contributed significantly to keeping the media, law enforcement officials, and corrupt government officials eyes on the "meatball" of flagrant public corruption.

Keep up exposing the excellent and informative dialogue -- the good citizens are starved for it, and the bad guys/gals abhor and shirk from it. In spite the popular McKeesport defense that negativity harms the city, I would contend that non-transparency and deception harm the City more.

Thanks for the unpaid and unappreciated public service. Keep your truth squad narratives flowing and ultimately they will be congruent with gambling raids convictions and perhaps new collateral indictments.

We must have hope and keep the course. You are one of the few on Topix that set the tone and a clear trajectory to clean up the Mon Valley overflowing cesspool of corruption.
