By Mr. Johnson's own admission , he was not cooperating. What did he expect to happen?! Police officers are just doing their jobs for public safety. You resist arrest, the possibility of someone getting hurt is higher. No sympathy.

Two men walking along a street in McKeesport were shot tonight, police said.

The men, ages 20 and 26, were walking along Union Street near Sixth Avenue, when it appears at least one shooter, on foot, took aim at the pair at 6:11 p.m., police Capt. Tim Hanna said.

They were transported to hospitals, and their wounds did not appear to be life-threatening, he said.

"They didn't know why they were being shot at," Capt. Hanna said.

McKeesport police are investigating.

It is what it is in the Port combat zone. Call the Terminator when conditions become a threat to the safety of the innocent. I do not miss when I shot back.

How many times did you shoot back? Did you hit anyone? Did the police chase you?

It ok to shoot back but keep the noise down or I will have to apprehend you for violation of the noise ordinance.

Too bad for the gov't. entitled thugs . Follow orders & stop believing you're special because you grew up being fed & kept by the taxpayers.
Sick & tired of their same lame ass excuses -' Lawdy , Hep me - I be jess too skeered to lissen to dat Lawman . Bullshyt . And now I guess we'll hear his momma sayin -'Yo honor - he a goot boy & was juss comin home from choir practice at da Church .
Looks like they're lookin for easy cash . If you're too stupid to simply listen to the cops - you deserve to get your azz lumped up . Don't be out
smoking dope at 1:30 in the morning . Nobody deserves special treatment or passes based on skin color . Watch the poverty pimp lawyers jump on this - like BO hussein - Jesse or Fat Al .

WPXI is allover this. Are the knuckleheads at WPXI asking the important questions here?

1.) Sir, where are you employed?
2.) What time do you have to get up for work?
3.) Why were you not cooperative with the police?
4.) Sir, do you realize that if you were not pulled over, and not doing something wrong, that none of this would have happened?

They fail to ask the questions, and fail to give us the answers we deserve.

Obey the police, they have it tough as it is and they are truly doing their job in order to keep us safe.
