It is not a matter of digging. Much of the corruption has been mined and known to many on the street. And, perhaps including some law authorities.
The challenge is to get the law authorities interested in seriously investigating and then invoke the next legal steps.
Law officials did it in Luzerne County where over 20 law makers, judges, and other government employees were indicted and convicted.
As a start and first example,the DA most likely completed his investigation of the bogus MPD overtime scheme and reported such to the City. It is believed the DA did a complete and profession investigation.
It is alleged that the DA's report was submitted to a city official and the official most likely suppressed it by keeping it a secret from all.
A second example, how difficult would it be to investigate the questionable selling of tires to City employees by a former City public works official? The DA should be interested in this purported wrong doing.
The DA is a big part of the problem. So is his worthless old man.

Richard Thomas, Rapist, Upset He Might Have Gotten HIV From Victim

A convicted rapist collapsed after police told him he may have contracted HIV from the woman he assaulted.

The BBC reports that Richard Thomas, 27, was sentenced last week to five years and four months for raping a woman while she slept. He pleaded guilty to the crime in Liverpool Crown Court on July 20.

Thomas will find out from test results later this week whether he's contracted the disease.

Thomas "let himself into her home uninvited in the middle of the night and she awoke to find him raping her from behind," the Telegraph reports.

"He was arrested and interviewed and said he had been drinking heavily, taken cocaine and ecstasy and could not recall the incident," prosecutor Harry Pepper said in court, according to the Telegraph.

Thomas' attorney told the court his client had started using cannabis at age 9 and binge drinking at 11, before moving on to cocaine and ecstasy in his early teens, according to the Mirror.

What should be news is that the punishments never fit the crime. Then again, that's never really news in McKeesport.

Will the apparent success of Operation Pork Chop rekindle interest in the Cornell School sex scandal?

Is the timing right with Ms. D. exoneration and Appeals Court victory to exhume the very well buried scandal by the teachers' union, administrators, MPD, and politicians.

Recall that Officer Holtzman did some of the so called investigation on this matter.

If Holtzman was quashing cases this could open the door to several more grand juries. One case in particular comes to mind. Former Clairton Public Safety Director claimed an attempted murder and suicide case back in 1989 was deliberately quashed by then Police Chief Tom Brletic and Mayor Lou Washowich. Of course this information needs to be taken with a grain of salt. Scully impregnated at least one teenage girl from the Wilson section on Clairton when he was a patrolman also for the city of Clairton.

One has to ask themselves are the men and women in blue really the best one to serve and protect. By the way. Scully never paid a dime to help the young girl who obviously suffered terribly before and many years after the unwanted pregnancy. The daughter would contact a man who wrote extensively about William Scully on the Internet. My understanding is she wanted to find out how to contact her father. Scully, the dapper Irish Dan of the Mon Valley always felt it was better to spend money on his wardrobe than to care for his own daughter and the woman who gave her birth. A very sad tale concerning another proud and vocal leader of the democratic party.

The Cornell School sex scandal will get top billing once the MASD SB is faced with funding her monumental cash settlement for back pay, legal expense, punitive damages etc.

Hooray for the Ms. D. victory. I love it. I am sure that the two door watchers love it. They were very close to her in action, no pun intended.

Grand jury indicts school administrator in Steubenville rape case

October 7, 2013 5:49 pm

By Lexi Belculfine / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

A school employee has been indicted in connection with the Steubenville rape case.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that William Rhinaman, 53, of Mingo Junction, was indicted by the grand jury on counts of tampering with evidence, obstructing justice, obstructing official business and perjury

Mr. Rhinaman is listed on Steubenville City Schools' website as director of technology. The indictment is in relation to his role as an administrator, attorney general's office spokesman Dan Tierney said.

The attorney general's office said Mr. Rhinaman was taken into custody this afternoon, but would not confirm whether he was arrested at work or at home.

He is being held in the Jefferson County Jail, as of 4:42 p.m., and will be arraigned at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

"This is the first indictment in an ongoing grand jury investigation," Mr. DeWine said. "Our goal remains to uncover the truth, and our investigation continues."

The Ohio special grand jury has been meeting for months to investigate whether more people should be charged in connection with the Steubenville rape case, in which Trent Mays, 17, and Ma'lik Richmond, 16, were found delinquent of raping a 16-year-old girl during a night of partying Aug. 11, 2012.

Mr. DeWine called for the grand jury immediately following the March 17 verdicts against the two Steubenville High School football players to ensure the exhaustiveness of a criminal investigation that some say was corrupted by allegiances to the football program. Mr. DeWine noted 16 people refused to be interviewed during the initial investigation.

Social media played a key role in the case, which drew national attention. Some who attended the Aug. 11 party took cell phone pictures and videos of the assault and then talked about it on Facebook and Twitter. A video later showed up on YouTube, featuring another student joking about the attack.

It was unclear whether any of the social media matters played a role in the charges against Mr. Rhinaman. A spokesman for Mr. DeWine could not be reached for comment.

Until today, only the two former Steubenville High School football players had been charged in connection with the rape of the Weirton, W.Va., girl, even though other teens attended the party and talked about it on social media.

In March, Mr. DeWine signaled that failure to report a felony, failure by a mandatory reporter to report child abuse (including rape) and the provision of alcohol to underage persons are all charges that the grand jury could explore.

Under Ohio law, school employees and other authority figures who interact with minors are required to immediately report suspected abuse or neglect.

Search warrants requested by the attorney general were executed in March at the Steubenville board of education offices and other facilities, Steubenville High School and Vestige Ltd. in Medina County, Ohio, a computer forensic services provider used in civil litigation and law enforcement.

Your said it. You got it. Now the public knows it again.

Why was his involvement covered up by the MASD administration? Could it be he had friends in high MASD administration?

AG Kane should include this in her ongoing investigations in Mon Valley.
