Let's look at the Families of these self absorbed, holier than thou, above the law wanna be Gangsters. Now the embarrassment their kids have to face in school and at the grocery store after seeing their Dad drug to jail is something that will scar them for life. Especially Carr and Holtzman... they are supposed to be Pillars of the community... The Port DESERVES these community leaders.

How does this fit in with the "No Negativity" policy of the former Mayor and all of those Hope, Dignity, Love, Respect, Mom, Apple Pie and Chevrolet signs?

all accused are innocent until proven quilty.
i believe in the justice system.
deals are being made as we speak.

they really dont want to lock anyone up here, they are merely looking for higher up corruption such as the orie sisters or the veons or deweeses of the world.
they dont want the samll change,they want the big bucks, this investigation will go no where. its a witch hunt to hunt for bigger game. the woods are full of them why settle for the rabbits when there are bear to hunt....

None of this would have happened if Smith was not rehired. The way they conducted themselves vs Hempfield was reprehensible, Intentionally injuring a player at mid field by chopping his knees on the open field was borderline criminal. I guess we see where they get their examples... former police department going to prison. Bend over guys... Big Bubba the drug dealer you busted is waiting for you!! My bet is the esteemed councilman will be wearing lipstick.

Aren't you the same jackass who, as late as last week, was posting the investigation wasn't going anywhere and nothing was going to happen?

This is a bunch of BS. Holtz Pero and Carr are stand up guys and have known them for almost 20 years. Gambling Ring ? Please. 200 Plus business across the county have the machines. Every bar or tavern have football pools. Do you really think Joe Shmo who stops for a beer, and drops 5 bucks in the poker machine is going to go to the Pittsburgh Casino when the machines are removed. No. If the above stand up guys are found guilty, then the next time you buy a 50/50 ticket at a high school football game, or if you sell the 50/50 ticket for the school team, go to a cash or gun bash, march yourself right over to the Magistrates office and stand in line next to them.

The attorney general says 16 are charged in a gambling operation in and around McKeesport.
Lawsuits pending soon! The city of ill repute, disrespect, lies, negativity by illegal gambling. McKeesport is quickly in its way down and James Brewster helped as he ignorantly laughs his way to failure. The entire city is full of abandoned structures. Businesses up and left. Meanwhile, the mayor is building himself a new house.
The McKeesport city solicitor was DUI, hospital tests revealed over 2x the legal limit about a year ago. The McKeesport mayor re-hired him, gave him a hefty raise. The chief of police claimed it was icy patches, ignoring a officer on the scene. The officer on the scene said he smelled alchohol of John Jason Elash breath. The officer on scene also heard John Elash admitting to paramedics he had been drinking. Televised news showed the smashed Cadilkac SUV. Police said the driver was missing but they (the police) weren't looking for the driver. McKeesport is a demoralized city.

THANK YOU. Most common sense post out there.

These knuckleheads need to find something more important to post about. What about the football block pools? These hypocrites likely play these. The hypocrites likely play poker machines in bars.

This is nothing. The only reason people are making a stink is because the state government is not getting their greedy hands on the proceeds, ie; no tax dollars. How about going after the cheats in society? How about going to Giant Eagle on O'Neil Blvd, set up shop and arrest the Welfare pigs? I was in yesterday and saw all sorts of Welfare abuse. How about getting those pigs?

I know of, and know, a great deal of these guys. The majority would give the shirt off of their backs to help you. The majority would rescue you from your burning house. The majority give to charity etc... They will have their 15 minutes of fame, and things will pass.

Get real.

This site is a breeding ground for the weak, the weak who hide behind their keyboards, the weak who do nothing but bit$# and moan and have all of the answers. The weak who do nothing but chastise authority. All of the "experts" are coming out of the woodwork now.

Let's concentrate on what's really important. Give it a break.

Never forget who endorsed and sponsored Mr. Carr on his way up the ladder of self destruction.

Never forget Mayor Mike put him in charge of the International Village and Palisades and fired Mr. Joyce in the process.

Mr. Carr is only part of the blame. The mayor by his poor choice of giving Dan more authority and responsibility brought significant negativity to our beloved City.
