I just received a bill for over $1,000. The person at the call center told me there is a monthly cost of $68 from the street to your house a month. Is this true?? The last bill received was January and the online balance was always $0. This just doesn't make sense!!!! Only two people live in this home!!
Drivers very commonly ignore "No Turn on Red" signs. And often the signals are set so both pedestrians and cars get a green light, putting pedestrians at risk from turning cars. Where there's a "Barnes dance" (walk sign for both streets in an intersection), the diagonals could be marked with broad white crosswalk bands, as a signal to cars not to turn.
Have you ever seen a car yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk in pgh? Did that driver get rear-ended or just honked and yelled at?
In narcotics, most of the officers working it have long disciplinary records because they go under cover and put their lives on the line. These drug dealers cry the blues when an end is put them dealing drugs and making money from it. These arent ordinary citizens 99% of the time but harden criminals looking to hurt the lives of others for profit. This ex officer is a veteran and a good man. He should be reinstated and allowed to finish his career. Most of them should because we all learn from our mistakes in time and change over time. This is the perfect example. This man needs to be reinstated as an officer, he is needed right now and could really make an impact on the herion epidemic in our city...
Brad Walker is a good man. He loved his job as an officer. He put his life on the line each day to take careless criminals and drug dealers off the streets. He worked the roughest neighborhoods and went after the worst of the worst criminals and drug dealers.
Every police officer has a long list of conduct issues because ppl think the cuffs might be too tight or simply want to justify themselves getting caught and taken off the streets. This man was one of Pittsburgh's best officers and if you would spent 2 hours sitting with the man, allowing him to tell his side of the story you would realize your sitting next to a true good heart police officer that did what he had to, to take the bad guys off the streets. Instead of bashing him, you would truly be touched if you would get to hear his side of every allegation against him. Shame how we speculate and assume without knowing nothing of the person himself.
He was one of the good guys who had a ton of stress on his shoulders at the time. The city shouldnt put so much stress on the backs of officers and expect so much outta them. Its really ashame that this man isnt still an officer, if he where i bet the herion epidemic were facing wouldnt be killing family members all over the city.
This is bias bullshit. To the author, if you took an oath to serve and protect all citizens at any cost, including your life, wouldnt you do whatever you had to, too protect others. In this article you slandered this man. You listed all these statements that the man was accused of but FORGOT to list why. Working under cover narcotics is the most dangerous job on the planet hands down their is no job like it. 99.9% of the cases you listed you FORGOT to allow this man to tell his side of the story. He worked in the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city and went after the most dangerous ppl in the city. All whom have destroyed 1000s of families pushing drugs in our city. Everytime forced is used against a criminal or a drug dealer who sold that bag of herion to your little sister, which killed her, you would only wish their were more officers like the one you bashing. I met this man not long and worked along side him, he is a good man, a humble man, a man who would give anyone the shirt off his back help them. Your speculation has no facts behind it at all. Listing what he had been accused of but not listing his side of the story or his experiences to what happen at the moment in time is ignorance. For that you should be ashamed, their are ppl like this ex officer that put their life on the line every day to keep our city streets a safe place to enjoy, a neighborhoods from being bought up and controlled by gangs. Pittsburgh isnt like some parts of Detroit right now because of officers like Brad Walker. I would love to take you into a really bad part of city at night or even in broad daylight and drop you off. I bet you would go from bashing a man you know nothing of to begging him for his help.
Work tirelessly to defeat Keith Rothfus in the coming election. He's the fascist.
If you do not like living in the USA leave
Yeah you guys are really tearing up the news commentary.
Way to go on your biased reporting as usual.
Regardless of which candidate was in town you have a responsibility to report factual news.
Bunch of pussies in Ambridge, just look at their town, it sucks anyways, can't believe Trump showed up there, thought Obama admin was supposed to fix those crappy towns
It's no wonder Keith Rothfus and his crew harbor such disrespect for women's health and safety. I bet no girls wanted to date him because he looks like a 1980s computer geek crossed with a hamster. What a reprehensible dweeb.
Nobody won in the debate.
On most websites, polling tells us that Mrs Clinton
gains points more or less after debate.
As a matter of fact, situation is favoring Mrs Clinton.
In the photo of Block with Clinton, I think he might be crossing his fingers behind his back.
All I know is that since the Obumma administration the coal industry has taken a fall. A BIG FALL. He and Killary vowed to put an end to the coal industry and between the two of them they did just that. Do you even have a clue as to how many lives and jobs this affects? Well do you?
I read somewhere in The Beauty Insiders that 2013 was such a special year for fashion. And I can see why. With all the great floral dresses and pantsuits. I heavily influenced my style and look around that year.
This would not be the first blunder of the Post-Gazette, but it would be the worst.
Donald Trump doesn't seem to have a clue. He doesn't know how the government functions; doesn't seem to care really.
I think, if he wins, he's in for a big surprise.
Thank you for the info. The post has been updated.
I am a bike rider myself and ride the rails to trails all the time I plan on doing a ride from the top of the Laurel Mountains back to Pittsburgh it's a three day trip but its all down hill :-) the way I like it being 53, their are nice places to stay over night along the way and have a camp fire under the stars. If anyone is interested in doing this trip let me know, soon will be fall, the leaves are already falling from the trees. Eric from Pittsburgh PA
thank you very much for covering this story!!
your link on the line "Local activists are collecting supplies to send to those camped out in North Dakota" does not appear to link to information about said supply drives?
the supply drive that was mentioned at the rally is mine. I'm collecting donations at Scratch Food & Beverage (1720 Lowrie street) in Troy Hill through this saturday!!
here is a link to the flyer with info:
