I tend to agree with you as corruption has infiltrated everything that you and once believed in and why I donned a US Army uniform and watched out for the bad guys trying to nail me. The authorities let me down when I was protecting them. Now it is the authorities turn.
However, I will not run up the white flag until Captain Viking, Porkster, and a former school director indictments are adjudicated.
If they all walk that should be translated into all being cooperative witnesses. That is bad for the actors not yet indicted. This whole matter could escalate to the next higher tier of corruption and I speculate that is what he authorities are meticulously targeting.
Do not forget the Feds, the IRS, and DEA have a dog in the race that consists of some cool one million in unreported greenbacks of income. Also, the Feds could play the RICO card on those elected officials who thought they were at arms length. I would not plan on hunting in WVA this fall.
I would suggest that you request the fat lady to sit down for a few months
Organized Crime has been elevated to Synchronized Crime to include the complete cooperation and loyalty of government officials and government workers with all levels of our faux government being compromised. I would credit the Zappala Crime Family/Terrorist Group with a job well done.

So true Mike, and how do you account for "some" criminals never getting caught even though most know of this family, they still can't get a net over them. You need lots of money for protection, and the family swims in it.
If Eliot Ness was alive today, he'd still be scratching his head wondering how a family can get away with all the corruption for all these years. It's really quite easy if you think about it.

Now that the Pope has excommunicated mobsters it will be interesting to see what the US Bishops Conference does about one of its board members, Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala Jr. who's a soldier in the Zappala Crime Family/Terrorist Group. Likewise, what choice will Bishop David Zubik make concerning mobster and former PA Supreme Court Chief Justice Stephen Zappala Sr., who sits on the diocesan board that reviews clergy sex abuse cases.

The Mafia assassinated JF Kennedy, will they kill Pope Francis.

I'm not clueless, off topic or nuts. Anyone of Italian decent should be ashamed of their heritage. Iyalians are nothing but ruthless savages. They kill to get their way. Barbarians look like saints compared to Italian-UnAmerican. Porky is your typical Italian. A lawless scoundrel. Too uneducated to make a living without bribing Jimmy Brewster, Marc Gergely and all the other scumbags. What you say Porky Pig I'm I right or wrong? You stinking worthless DAGO.

I want to correct Mike Ferrence on one point. I prefer the way Jewish Mafia King Pin, Meyer Lankey's daughter, Sandra Lansky, put it in her resent tell all Book. She referred to the Italian Mafia as Medieval Sicilian Peasants. By the way, do you know what Meyer Lansky, one of the mafia's biggest pleasure merchants, called the people who frequented his gambling halls, suckers. Yes, he called them suckers. He saw all his decadent customers as suckers, and he laughed all the way to the bank.
On another note, come on give me a break, either gambling is legal in Pennsylvania or it is not. "Legal" Commercial Gambling grew directly out of the mafia's gambling operations, their main racket. Who is kidding who here. The mafia got their relatives, and people, into well placed positions in government over time, "from gangs to shirts", which eventually lead to the legalization of their main racket, gambling. I think it is fairly Un-American to monopolize Gambling. But who ever said these "From Gangs to Shirts Wise-Guys", who are in charge now and "killing" their competition, were in any way America...?

I want to add another comment, as a follow up to Mike Ferrence commenting on the Pope Excommunicating the Mafia. Wow, was I happy when I heard that. We as a country have glorified the Bad Guys way too long. We as a people are so turned around and degraded, that Right is Wrong and Wrong is Right. The Pope by doing what did was slapping the guilty faces of people around the world who are involved in organized crime, not just in Italy. He said it is international, and an element of the Vatican is involved. He also went into related issues surrounding the Vatican Bank.
When I grew up, we watch the movies and were on the side of the good guys. Now we are so brainwashed by the media over saturating us with the glorification of the criminals, we think they are so cool. It's the movies people, not real life. Beyond that those movies should be seen as propaganda. The pope was courageous to do what he did. I have talked to people who just blow off what he said. I don't think so. It was huge what he did. In one statement he made the world sit up and take notice. Evil, Sin, Actions that hurt others.... all bad, all against God and everything on this earth that is potentially good and healthy. Our world is in a huge war, a war of pure evil against the remnants of good. What the Pope said was so long overdue. His was a voice in the wilderness of a New Age of Darkness.

Upon further review and fermenting restlessness among the communities, may be the Feds are looking at the replay tapes captured at the Viking and the state representative Gergely's intercepted communications.

Could the 16 indictments may be under covert reviews for federal transgressions?

Could the Feds also be looking to dust off some IRS statutes and the RICO act?

You see what way the NFL commissioners role is going now that his alleged lie has been exposed . It is now his word against a law official. It is great to see forced and news meda driven transparency in his office.

Next, I hope that some law enforcement agency or news media has the courage to expose some local government wrong doings.

All 13 formally indicted know that very well. So do I, and know cares or knows who I might be.

We wonder when the AG is going to return the $1,000,000 with interest. Please AG do not issue a 1099 INT with the return.

We file our taxes on the same transparent forms as the Big Red One. It worked for him for years and you let him off the hook.

Will the AG and PSP storm the Mob Valley again after the fair weather of the December 1 jury trial walk through for the Porkster subsides?

Are there dark clouds on the horizon descending on the Mob Valley again in tornado intensity?

Is the inferred AG's ongoing investigations a barometric indication of inclement tranquility and a brewing bombshell vortex when the confidential informants spew like hail ?

Will more revelations of intercepted communications be as intense and shocking as a bolt of lightening?

In a mob town like Pittsburgh or Baltimore anything can be covered up. The district attorneys are corrupt, plenty of dirty cops to keep even murders a secret.

Did former Clairton Public Safety Director Bill Scully and former McKeesport Mayor Lou Washowich cover-up the attempted murder of my son and the suicide of the shooter? The real question is why wouldn't they?

Perhaps Bill Scully and Lou and the gang should contact Marty Griffin and have Marty expose all the harm that I have caused to these great democratic leaders. Or Bill Scully and Lou and the gang can just fess up and admit they are all rotten pieces of crap.

I can't publish this stuff if it weren't 100% accurate. Maybe you could call Bill Scully and ask him if he lured and impregnated a teenage girl when he was a Clairton police officer.

Thanks for keeping this topic alive. I'm sure the democratic leadership of the Mon Valley appreciates the free publicity.
