Re: “Josh Shapiro launches first TV ad in campaign for Pennsylvania attorney general

Why would you vote for someone who just ran for county commissioner promising no new taxes and GUESS WHAT HE raised taxes as soon as he got in office. What tricks will he pull over the eyes of the voters next? Let's see what he does next if he wins the DA post? It's a shame that the old guard is putting the screws to Kathleen Kane but at least she has them running scared because of the pornographic email scandal! How many judges and officials have resigned already?

Re: “UPDATED: Arrests in Downtown Pittsburgh T station lead to confrontation with officers, onlookers

Absolutely ridiculous to waste money investigating this. The police are doing nothing more than trying to gain order by dispersing a crowd before a riot breaks out. Being a reporter does not give you the right to ignore the police. And for the article to state that the officer was acting in anger...excuse me, try breaking up a brawl and have argumentative assholes in your face screaming, yelling, calling you names, cursing at you...and YOU maintain your emotions. Anyone who thinks an officer does not react when their adrenaline is pumping is just an idiot!

Re: “Medical-marijuana bill passes Pennsylvania state house

I am glad that PA is finally moving forward with this. I thank the people who have worked hard on this. Some issues with the bill remain:

-It will take 18-24 months to implement after it is signed into law.

-Only allows treatment for 17 serious conditions. The board can approve more conditions "Three years after the MM program commences".

-Doctors are required to register with the state and complete a 4 hour course. Their information will likely be made public (possibly under the Right-To-Know Act). None of this is required for seriously harmful pharmeceticals. This move will discourage most doctors from participating. New Jersey did the same thing which resulted in a low-turnout of physicians, and thereby a low turnout of patients.

-Growers/processors are required to have $2,000,000 in capital with $500,000 in the bank. There is a $200,000 initial fee and $10,000 application fee. This eliminates small businesses.

Re: “Mass shooting in Pittsburgh suburb leaves five dead, three injured

Hopefully the two that survived will be able to identify the shooters. Give both of them the DEATH PENALTY AND USE IT. NO life in prison terms for either one. Put some teeth in what the death penalty is for like they did in FL years ago! Texas knows how to deal with the CRIMINALS.

Re: “Mass shooting in Pittsburgh suburb leaves five dead, three injured

If the Pittsburgh area is anything like Chicago, where I live, I have a pretty good idea what Wilkinsburg is like.
And who lives there.

Re: “Allegheny County Jail Health Justice Project to relaunch tonight

I am a parent of a inmate at ACJ. The Warden Orlando Harper denied him medical treatment when he refused the Physician hours to examine him. My don needs life staining medicatons and blood test done every 3-6 months. This had no happen since he had been there
The nurses gave him the wrong medications and my son had a epileptic seziure. The nurse then gave him Benadryl and he never had the proper treatment after having a seziure. The medical staff manager is a CO, who has no medical background. I have written the Warden,Mayor, State Reps and news stations. This is against the law to deny medical treatment.

Re: “Mass shooting in Pittsburgh suburb leaves five dead, three injured

My heart breaks for these victims and families. I pray for their comfort. But we mustn't blame the guns. We must teach our children to value life and learn to deal with their anger in other ways besides pulling out a gun. It's a lot easier to say "bad guns" and try to curtail their availability to all citizens. Truth is the BAD guys will ALWAYS get their hands on guns because they have no respect for life or authority.

Re: “Health researchers say fracking too close to schools, residences

...no set back is "safe" because fracking is not safe! Love the industries response...yep a bunch of mom's, forced to take action to protect their kids are guilty of spreading fear. Only fear being spread by them is the concern they have for their kids health.

Re: “Health researchers say fracking too close to schools, residences

I really appreciate the work done by Ms. Haley et. al. that demonstrates that the current governmental "protection" embodied in setbacks are not protective. However, I must take issue with the conclusion that "a combination of reasonable setbacks and controls.." will do the job. No fracking is safe and must be halted immediately. While an appropriate setback can be useful in the case of explosions and fires, the much greater and pervasive risk is from the ambient air.
Children in schools go home at night, where they proportionally spend more time and therefore have a greater potential to be exposed to pollution there. Asking simply for setbacks and other mitigations in effect accepts location-based exposure to pollution -- decreased gas activity pollution (not no pollution) while at school, but ok where the children (and let's not forget the adults) live or go outside that setback.
