Is North Braddock the only Borough where they pay the members of there street department more money than their police officers and give them benefits?

Hmmmm....lets see pay the guy who operates a lawn mower more than the man who can legally kill you! Wow that makes a lot of sense!

Yup thats North Braddock for you...they value their rundown streets more than they value their police.

The street department does more work that the police. When was the last time you saw the street department sleeping?

Oh wait, they have like four couches in the street department and a bunch of recliners. I SURE they NEVER sleep in there.

I agree. There are many streets that still need work done to them, but not in 1st ward. I guess the white part of town gets to have nice roads.

Maybe the borough should cut the police department, give the street department a little bit more money and a gun

I give the street department credit for what they do but why can't they plow wider lanes on side streets if there is room to do so with areas no cars are parked on one side

The Borough is required to maintain the streets, they are not required to provide a police department. They should consider disbanding the police and using a contracted service or the state police. And North Braddock is not the only municipality paying the street dept. workers more than the cops, it's a statewide notion. Borough Street dept. workers have to have more common sense than the cops, you can be a cop and a moron at the same time as proven time and time again in North Braddock, you have to have some knowledge to work the equipment the street dept has too. The NBPD tasered someone while they were sleeping in their own house, that should tell you everything.

Let me take care of things. I'll level the whole town and let you all try to figure out what to do with it.. I'll even do East Pittsburgh, Rankin, Braddock, Swissvale and Braddock Hills. Start at Sacred Heart Church's driveway and push everything into the Mon. These towns have become the "melting pot" shithole outside of the city of Pittsburgh.

Just make the Police Department drive the plow trucks since they wrecked all of the Police cars. They they can lay off the Street Dept and give the PD benefits!

poor taste is more like the senseless beating of a teen in homewood (j miles) or the guy that was shot in the back in oakland, ca by a transit officer. these and thousands of other police abuse cases take away any sympathy i would have had for a dead cop and his family.
