Mr. Ference:
Can you explain or speculate why the Feds, County Police, McKeesport Police Department, or DA Zappala or other local police departments were not involved with the AG Kane and State Police in these SW PA video machine raids and subsequent 16 indictment, with more expected?
Common sense would tell you that the DA's office, county police and obviously the McKeesport Police department would be the law enforcement agencies one would expect to know the most about any crime going on, at least locally. I would suspect that the AG's office, and the feds either do not trust the Zappala netork or perhaps like the reports coming in to me, they are afraid of the Zappla Crime Family aka Al-Zappala Terrorist Group, as well.

One can only speculate but I'm reminded of the raids that took place in Clairton back in the 70s. The mayor, chief, justice of the peace, all the way up to District Attorney Robert Dugan were indicted and many or most went to jail except for the informer from Glassport. A portion of our government is rotten we just don't know how much. We can connect the dots, read between the lines, etc. and come up with a pretty good idea of who the scoundrels are. But in the case of organized crime or synchronized crime as I like to refer to it, very little can be done. Someoneis already waiting in the wings to replace Senator Brewster and the other traitors. At best, we can only hope those persons are a little less ruthless.

Mr. Ference I do not recall that DA Robert Dugan was indicted. I recall he married into a wealthy family based out of Ligoner.

I recall he was killed in a suspicious hunting accident by a shotgun trying to negotiate a fence while hunting on a Liqoner estate.

Mr. Ference:

Thanks for refreshing my memory and forcing me to do some research.
Your are correct he was indicted after his lethal accident.

Wow, DA Duggan was in deep, very deep. It is easy to understand why he had difficulty handling his 12 gauge shotgun safely. The full story is at the following web site.
