So bitching here accomplishes what?
It promotes information covered up usually in the process. All public forums have someone venting. That's part of posting for many years. When someone wants to move into a place, they can stay away. It helps others from moving into areas known for trouble. Staying away from a community with dirty playing football players. Trouble residents that lie and tell stories. Did you ever argue with the lying trolls about bitching and lying? John Q makes valid points, all boards are vented on. Don't like it, don't look and remain silent. You don't have to come either.

John Q drives a Hummer.. not a Jeep or Escalade. Yes, he has been coaching for a long time in youth sports. He is an expert on many things... and best of all... he openly spews total disdain for the Port. Difference between him and most people, is he says what he thinks about the port. There are deep seated hatred for the port amongst all of the surrounding areas that goes back into the 80's. The port is responsible for all of the valley drug trade and gang violence clear to Monessen. It all starts with the scum bags living the dream in the port.
Wrong as usual! You need to get some glasses, because you think so twisted that can't see straight! It all starts with greed, with people who would do anything for money; the Mafia, crooked politicians and police that give sanction a green light to make money from bringing in those drugs.

Those scumbags you reffer to don't grow or process heroin or cocaine in the port. They are the victims, not the cause. Those politicians and "respectable" appearing mobsters whom you respect; those who want a piece of the devil's pie, like those who run for Mayor and other City posts like Cheif of police, Magistrate and have big businesses are the real "scumbags" hiding behind a clean image.

And you wonder why the area has gone to hell in a handbasket! It's because of the once middle class people, who think like you do. The entire structure fell apart when the parasitical rich left after the steel mills crashed. You guys haven't stopped belly aching and blaming everyone else since. Try making adult decisions for once in your life. If it's not such a great place to live, then leave, its as simple as that. Is that so hard to do? Stop acting like immature little kids playing "grownup"! What's wrong are you on home detention with a ankle bracelet and can't leave.You guys are so weak! The weak give up and stay - you can do what you want to do or say what you want to say but we see who you really are.

Oh... I THOUGHT the point of posting here was not only to tell residents the truth, uncover the fraud being perpetrated by decades of corruption by city officials and their minions, AND AND AND inform those of us who want to CHANGE McKeesport for the better.

Anybody can bitch and vent for its own sake. Some of us would like to see a bunch of crooks go to jail instead.

I've been posting under this handle for several years. Who the f--- are you? Y-O-U don't have to come here either.

The driver of the Jeep? Timothy Tatters of White Oak per KDKA- and, he was retired from the county Police dept - former officer. He states that he thought he hit a dog, didn't realize it was a person. Bull%$#@. Wouldn't you stop even if you hit an animal?

Also states he was in a bar for 11 hours, and only had 3 16 oz beers. M<y guess? The3 piece of garbage was hammered- went home afterwards and slept it off.

Do the same to him.

Fox 53 just announced it was a former officer who was the driver. They showed video of a caucasian man but did not identify him or the city he worked for prior to leaving the force.

FOX 53 announced the driver said "2 other vehicles almost hit her before I did". Can you believe that?

No mistaking the fact that he knew he hit a pedestrian and kept going.

Perhaps if he stopped and sought help immediately she would have survived.

Exactly. He said he hit a animal, and most would stop for a animal. Some, him and a few others don't care about anything but themselves.

Eddie, he said almost two other vehicles almost hit her additionally. He knew and proceeded anyways. Hope they cut through the lies.

Listen to the Fox53 animal cruelty story, that guy needs to yell at him too. He was laughing on his porch with the news interviewer!

Don't the Tatters live in the dump of a house right near White Oak school? The one with all the garbage laying around and the beat up hoopties? Nasty fux! Nasty family.

If that is the person, the neighborhood should rejoice if he is put in a cage by the authorities.

He always seemed to flaunt his police connections and caused a lot of grief and misery for his upscale and classy neighbors.

Is there some Karma in this unfortunate and tragic incident? He seemed to be a bully and arrogant and a nightmare for the WO ordinance officer. He is exactly the type of person that would try to justify flaunting of law and disrespect for human safety.

The name seems so appropriate -- the place is in tatters.

The driver of the car that hit the druggie/hooker is in custody and is indeed a former officer in the port from what I am hearing.
She was not a "druggie/hooker" jackass. She was a mental health patient; she was a PERSON & I'm sure she was a lot more caring & kind than you ever were!
People like you who have no compassion for anyone else other than themselves make me sick. The mental health population gets absolutely no credit & the crooked cop that killed her with his vehicle will most likely NOT get what he deserves.

The woman had a serious mental illness - something you obviously have no education about. Perhaps her sleep patterns were different from the average person's?..So that makes her a person "up to no good" ?! Google her name & you will find that she has no criminal history. She was a woman with family and friends and now they have to mourn her loss because of some drunken idiot who had no business driving after being at the bar for ELEVEN HOURS.

Your posting is very articulate, sympathetic, and a powerful statement of the facts. If the pseudo sober driver was as wise, respectable, and family oriented as you he would not be impacting an innocent pedestrian at 4:00 am.

Kansas St. right below White Oak school. The outside of your house can tell a lot about the people living inside. It's a trash heap and so is the family. That house has always been an eyesore. It should be torn down and made into parking lot.

White Oak officials have tried ever way to enforce their code ordinances. I heard he always takes them to court and uses a public defender. He is a disgrace to this White Oak neighborhood. He is as irresponsible with his premises as he is with his 4:00 am driving skills.

I hope they sling the book at him.

She was not a mental patient.. her family owned the place. No one on the streets of the port at 4 am is up to a stroll, especially in the winter time.
so what

No one reported that she was a mental patient. It was reported, however, that she was a resident with mental health issues.

It's irrelevant as far as I'm concerned.

Whether she lived there, or worked the 3rd shift for a family owned business, the fact is that she wasn't "walking the streets" at 4AM.

She exited a senior care facility and walked through it's parking lot and headed toward the adjacent parking lot of a 24 hour convenience store.

She wasn't strolling about to buy crack or a 6 pack. She went to the convenience store next door.

THAT makes her actions suspect??????
