The sheriff's office picked nine suburbs for the patrols: Rankin, Stowe, Mount Oliver, Braddock, Duquense, Clairton, McKeesport, McKees Rocks and Wilkinsburg. Of those, McKeesport, McKees Rocks and Wilkinsburg had five or more homicides last year.

Wilkinsburg had the highest with 12; McKeesport had nine; and McKees Rocks and Penn Hills had five each, according to statistics kept by the Allegheny County medical examiner's office.

McKeesport Area school board member Thomas Maglicco said he noticed the patrols one evening in June when he was visiting with McKeesport councilman Richard Dellapenna.

I wouldnt waste tax money on these towns,they are already poor, welfare moocher towns filled with hookers, drug addicts, pimps, alcoholics,wife beaters,corrupt council, school board,the mayor, the cops, you name it.........dont even set foot in these loser towns. i blame the people for hiding like cowards instead of fighting back. when the bad guys read stories like this they invade these towns taking over and trashing and killing and dragging everything down.

the samrt people are getting out of town before these scum own these towns.,
where are our locals officials?
why am i paying taxes?
since the money is drying up, who pays to patrol the streets?

where is our senator at?
why isnt he addressing the problem?
we need answers.

why isnt our state rep getting us funds from harrisburg to fight crime instead of fighting to build more welfare housing and more crime in the future?

more to come

You are very close and accurate summarizing the woes of the Port. However, I believe the issue is with law enforcement or should I say the lack of or selective law enforcement by ALL law enforcement entities.

Law enforcement entities follow their orders for selective or non enforcements or just ignore incidents, e.g, Cornell sex scandal covered, but Mr. South and his son prosecuted, and public information reported that a MASD employee had adult oriented information on his computer but was not punished and rewarded with salary increases.

How long did the late Dr. Risha escape the grip of all law enforcement agencies? He was implicated by the Feds after his demise!

Some cases in point: Cornell school sex scandal, missing MACM copper, missing cash from MACM workers lockers, fireman's unauthorized of fire truck for transportation to magistrate's hearing, second fireman at the magistrate's hearing on city clock, non-enforcement business privilege tax for the well connected, cash missing from scrapped city vehicles, cash missing from general city scrap, MPD overtime scandal, selectively and falsely arresting Councilman Paul Shelly, police removal of controller from public council meeting, International Village gate unaccountability, city solicitor soft second DUI punishment, no action by Disciplinary Board on the DUI solicitor, solicitor campaigning on the city clock, the astonishing list of pay for plays campaign contributions to the mayor and senator by vendors and contractors, the seemingly fizzed out Commonwealth AG and Grand Jury investigation into the illegal video device raids and ensuing subpoenas, the bogus PPM contract with MASD, nepotism everywhere, etc.

The above environment attracts the criminal elements to do business in the lawlessness Port.

More money to fight crime - I doubt it. Just let our police chief and his staff do their job without unsolicited outside and inside assistance and all will improve.

IMO, the Port has to shake this aura of a Lawless Zone and become a Law Enforcement Zone. Fifty dollar parking ticket fines will not do it.

Democrat IQ Test:

Why is Detroit a bombed out ghost town?

What was the price of a gallon of gasoline when Obama took office?

Do you see any problems with America borrowing $85 Billion every single month?

Why is there still poverty after we've spent over $7 Trillion on your "Great Society" programs that were supposed to eliminate poverty?

You voted for Obama in 2008 because he promised "Hope and Change". It's now January 2014 and everything is far worse than when Mr. Obama took office. Do you:
a) vote still approve of Obama
b) vote for anyone but Mr. Obama

For the past sixty years we've steadily increased spending on "education" in America, all the while SAT scores have steadily declined. To improve education in America we need to:
a) spend more on "education"
b) try something different
c) dumb-down the SAT tests

Torture is inhuman and should never be used because you believe in human rights. When we locate our enemies, your Nobel Peace Prize winning POTUS thinks it's okay to:
a) not torture them
b) assassinate them with a drone

There are about 20,000 gun-control laws on the books, the vast majority of which are completely ignored or not enforced. The solution for curbing "gun-violence" in America is:
a) enforcing existing gun laws
b) politicians passing more gun-control laws

The vast majority of violent criminals in our prisons are black and brown skins. This is because:
a) America is a racist country
b) The vast majority of violent crimes are committed by black and brown skins.

Exactly . It's part of the Communist Democratic Party's dumbing down plan for America . Why do we have good teachers with degrees getting laid off while the politicians dumb ass kids keep their school district jobs - because their union sold them out & laid off teachers are big news.
BO's puppet Eric Holder committed gun crimes & it was covered up . They don't use the laws we have - so it's not gun control - it's control of 'We , the people ' they want.
The Democrats have become the Communist Party & their main objective is to an American 3rd world country dependent on the Gov't. elitists to survive .
