A friend of a friend told me about a buddy of his who got "human trafficked" for not paying back a debt that he incurred looking up some legal info on the prothonotary site (or something to that extent...said some hobo directed him to the site). Guess he hadn't figured out the rate at which he was spending til it was too late. Luckily this guy is a real trooper and sees the glass as half full versus empty. In three more years, he will have "man ho'd" away his debt then he can back to family and friends on Collins Street. Happy Ending for all.

Yeah.....wanting our cops to do their jobs is spam/clueless.

Not the 3k owed to the school district? You paid to learn that? McKeesport, MASD, Keystone Collections filed that one.

Once a year , as noted elsewhere by someone else, people go around this town and make a big ta do about stopping the street violence.
How can we expect the cops to do that when they cant even enforce the traffic and "common sense" laws?
I am talking about things like running red lights, civil unrest and such.
My favorite traffic issue: People parking in front of stop signs, making intersections dangerous.
I live in a neighborhood where the people who live in a certain house feel its their God-given right to park in front of the stop sign. This makes the 4 -way intersection a very dangerous one since the car coming to that stop sign has to stop in the middle of the road, and the oncoming traffic often runs the stop sign THEY have.....many have responded by simply slowing and then going thru the blocked sign so as to not be sitting ducks.
Well, police cant be everywhere, you say.
True. But seeing as a cop lives 3 or 4 doors down from this situation (the squad car is parked there almost every day), how can this dangerous situation go unnoticed day after day.
I know someone who lives in Haler Heights (where apparently all the cops live) and he said that speeders and sign runners and people clogging up the streets with cars is an every day occurrence. Sort of makes the "traffic laws strictly enforced" signs seem downright dumb, since nothing is EVER enforced.
Or another favorite - how about when you call them for help...say someone is threatening you with physical harm...and the cops show up, let that person go and then try and convince you that pressing charges is a waste of everyone's time and that it will go no where if you stand up for your right to not be harassed.
So I ask you....if the cops that live there don't take their "protect and serve" jobs seriously enough to enforce common sense and traffic law violations that are literally steps away from their own front door in the "good" parts of town, how can we expect these same cops to curtail drug and gun activity on the "bad" side of the city?
I say -- if you are a city cop, you should have to live in the BAD parts of town...make them LIVE with the issues at home too....maybe things could get done then...of course, with the traffic examples above, maybe it wouldn't even matter.
Slogan campaign should be... Don't drink and drive in McKeesport, you could take a life! But if you do, you will get all the chances you need after the first. Then, you can get a job as city solicitor and a pay raise. Cars from Steele City Auto and ignore traffic citations in White Oak.

Best positivity political move of the year in McKeesport.

Want to stop violence in McKeesport and EVERYWHERE (cause its not just here)? Don't leave it to the police- you leave it to the parents. And, another way to stop violence,especially with firearms? Elimante Welfare/Access- all of the entitlement programs. The majority of this street crime is done by thugs who do not work, and live off of the honest folks. Make them work, make them pay their fair share and you will cut back on wasteful spending/wasteful support of the leaches, and you will slowly reduce gun violence because the leaches wont have time to do it

The government funds? McKeesport would cease as a city. McKeesport drug dealers don't collect access. Why are your political figures running the McKeesport Housing Authority? Most if not all are tenant on welfare, you call it Access. You'd actually have more crime because all the kids on Collins (your favorite street) would be homeless. The parents would have to get money somehow.

Crime is not from Access. The Connecticut shooter wasn't on welfare, nor his mother. Hose committed a crime, he worked as security in a McKeesport school.

Don't forget Ken Konnias, Dravosburg/McKeesport born and bred. Not on government funds. He had a job and committed murder. Plenty of non government welfare criminals. You didn't think drug dealer brand new vehicles were bought on welfare do you? Ken Konnias, Serra Catholic student stole money from his job.

A lot of crimes are committed by people that are not on welfare. Some of the most gruesome were by those with a job. In fact, workers have stolen from the job. If you crap for a hour on company time, workers do that too - counts for stealing. Many workers text and use cell phones on the job, stealing company time.(Not on break or lunch).

Hired help not working holding long conversations on company time is theft.

The movie theatre student was well educated in his field if study. He didn't collect welfare, but he killed innocent people.

Welfare doesn't equal crime. Simple poverty doesn't equal crime.

No, poverty does not equal crime but it does contribute to it. No, the drug dealers might not be on the Access but their Baby Mamas and all the chilluns ARE. Yes, employed people commit a number of crimes, some of them serious. Drug dealers are actually a lot smarter than we give them credit for being. They live large (big SUV's and high end automobiles), don't 'use' the product they sell (that's for the suckers they call 'customers'), have the Govt raising the children, paying for their medical, food, housing etc. while also providing a number of safe places for them to 'chill' when the heat is on, dress in the most expensive clothing, wear jewelry that the working man can only dream of possessing, and sleeping until he is READY to wake up.

Too much time on a person's hands will get them into trouble. The amount of non-working/non-productive people in this City is staggering. It goes hand in hand, poverty and crime, and that is just a simple fact.

Well the street they keep complaining about and access is repititious. But, the house with all the kids would make them homeless probably. I mean, they'd be out! No home! What'd they do to deserve it? But, crimes knives to school etc. does reinforce some on welfare do crime. I don't think extra time for kids not on access helps either.

Because whether the parents are on access or not they can commit crimes. Probably how the little Boston/Elizabeth Township bb's shooting was a problem. It could be adults, some act worse than troubled kids.

Speaking of, I hope police find the responsible party of the crime.

The curfew isn't enforced at all, another problem. I heard the mayor was driving around looking, but could be a rumor. ID like to believe the mayor cares that much, probably as you would.

The BULK of the crime ravaging our city and keeping our cops busy most of the time is directly caused by the welfare rats or people catering to them.

Not saying that non-welfare people do not commit crimes...they do. And not saying that ALL welfare people commit crimes...they do not.

But take a good look around the city at the various housing areas. How many calls to police come from Harrison village versus Christy Park versus Grandview versus Haler Heights?

As the number of welfare recipients and section 8 housing decreases, so does the crime, particularly drug related and violent crime.

It's not racist, it's not classist, it's not just spouting off, it's fact. Go down to the police station and ask to see the blotter for the week and see where the crimes are concentrated, except when some of these crimes in the bad areas leak over into the better areas.

Most real working people whop own their own homes and have families and such do not have time to be involved with drug crimes and such. People on a work schedule cant be out all night "ballin' " at "da club". And certainly, those who work for a living are not "chillin' " on the corners on Walnut etc.

You can always cite a few isolated examples... but check the population of the Prisons... over 80% of the criminals incarcerated above a security level 1 are black as we call you, and welfare grubbers. Also, Black welfare grubbers out number the normal sector of society more than 5-1 stiitng on Death Row. That is where I have an issue.. killem... don't make society care for them for decades. PA has not executed a death row inmate since 1999. Time to get Busy...

Hey, I hear you. I think that's part of those 40 tires were slashed. Kids or adults, if kids we have to look at the curfew enforcement. If adults, why and what's the purpose? We all have to admit, police are very tied up at the time.

These are serious crimes police are currently focused on. I think many aren't on welfare, I think they deal or do drugs. But, the areas you hear about are section 8 or McKeesport Housing Authority aka MHA. Senator Brewster is the chairman, so can't he do anything? Of does he want to because it brings money into the city? He's chairman on the MHA. It's a valid question. He holds more power according to Mike Ference findings.

I want to hear about the 40 slashed tires, and for the perpetrator to be caught. But, the information needs to be from direct witnesses. Not from a friend or hearsay. The news should interview more victims than only the one.

Years ago on Grandview (2007) tires were slashed. Even the judge was a victim. I think all the crimewatch signs aren't true. Your right, most workers don't have time to watch. Some try. And others on a day/night off would rather be spending time with family.

I'm happy the hit and run driver in McKeesport was caught. I feel sorry for the family of the woman. Anyone would have stopped if even a animal!
