I only see one arrest in Allegheny County on a charge of harassment . As I stated on a previous topic, does this justify said individual having
his life taken from him .

In my humble opinion we are far too quick to judge .

There's a ton - 13 or 14. It is horrible and senseless to de at the hands of another individual (or individuals).And, what gives someone the right to play God?

However, you can make the argument that if he was home playing XBOX or watching Letterman, that this would not have happened- right? My point is- nothing good happens if you are out doing illegal stuff- nothing. Make an honest living, pay taxes, help your neighbors. Granted things happen to honest folks too, but, chances are if you don't contribute to society- your days are numbered in one way or another.

Yes... it does. Get the garbage cleaned out of the Port if you EVER want it to be a viable place to live. Repeat offenders and career criminals like this at 23 should be taken out of society. This way iti s cheaper and can get anohter one out too when they catch the shooter. 1 dead...1 gets the chair!!!! 2 down 19,000 more to go... approx.

Oh.. Check again. I failed to give better instructions. Under "search type" select participant name - type his last name, then his first name. Then select the county- select Allegheny. Date of birth is stated to be 11/15/89 which would make him 23. It's the same dude.

Too many arrests makes you a criminal/thug. One less to worry about.

I searched again and I agree with you he has numerous arrests
for a number of different offenses . Still in my humble opinion
and with all due respect you and John Q come across as armchair
vigilantes .

We all share a common humanity regardless of race . Comments
that appear to celebrate the death of another person only serves
to coarsen that humanity

I do not celebrate the death of another individual per se. That being said, what is fitting for someone who is a disgrace to society? What would you consider fair for a repeat offender? Certainly not a visit to the shrink. Don't you get tired of people like this feeding off of us? I am. I am sick of supporting garbage

With the exception of a guilty plea he entered for a disorderly conduct charge, it seems that all the other charges (harassment / theft / assault / gun possession, etc) were withdrawn.
Did the victims recant or refuse to pursue justice via the law of the land?
If so, it seems that the law of the streets dispensed this young man's final verdict.
Yes the lawless of the streets is more expeditious and decisive at times. We regret that the cause justified these irreversible effects.

We pray for all the innocent that were injured, harmed, and sorrowed. May God be with the families and friends.

Speak for yourself!! WE do not regret anything here. One more dreg of society off my payroll!!!! WE are glad for the relief. Now, catch the shooters and get 2 more to the chair or gangland execution and get rid of them too.

I think you are trying to cull the herd by natural street violence attrition.

I agree with you that it is a cost effective and efficient process but devastating to the street hoods.

You'll be judged. They will be judged. It's ashame the way you think WHOCARES. That's probably why your not using your name. Whatever he has done wrong in his life is on him. Your perfect in your everyday life I guess. You don't walk around with all that hate in your heart either! Like I said you will be judged. I pray for your type. You need it more then any killer or drug dealer roaming the streets.

Probably to sell or receive drugs. Why else are repeat offenders hanging around, no one with them. Some drug guy from someplace else may have pretended they live at the location. The shooter set that location for some unknown purpose. Usually drug related.
