Re: “Trial set for Martin Esquivel-Hernandez; advocates call for Pittsburgh to become a sanctuary city

From Philadelphia: Thank you Pittsburgh. Philadelphia not only is getting bitten by Trump and Toomey, but by local State Rep. Martina White who is hysterical in her opposition to church sanctuaries,
http://readersupportednews.org/pm-section/31-31/40717-philadelphia-sanctuary-city-ground-zero-for-trump-gun-compromise-could-help

Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney has a great idea, He calls Philly a 4th Amendment City not a Sanctuary City, His views on the 4th Amendment and Gun Laws need improving to help get Libertarians more involved

Re: “Pittsburgh’s Bloomfield neighborhood gets its first luxury lofts

Horrible. Already people are being driven out of Bloomfield, just like in Lawerenceville and East Liberty, and this will just make it worse. Good plan, Peduto, making the city unaffordable for all the people that got you elected in the first place.

Re: “Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority responds to lead concerns with series of community meetings

During the PWSA meeting discussed in this article, I had asked questions trying to determine the cause of PWSA changing the water treatment mix. I was not able to get a direct response.

What I was trying to uncover is expressed in the following 2 paragraphs of this article: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/sep/12/pittsburgh-water-expensive-rust-colored-corrosive

"
By 2010, the water agency was struggling with what seemed like an invasion of cancer-causing chemicals called trihalomethanes, formed when salty fracking wastewater came into contact with treated drinking water.

In an effort to reduce brominated trihalomethanes, the PWSA dropped chlorine levels, one of several factors Stanley States, the director of water quality at PWSA until 2014, believes led to increased lead levels.
"

This leaves me with a question that has 3 parts:

1) Can we get data or information from PWSA - or past PWSA employees - regarding whether fracking contaminants were a factor in the treatment change?

2) Can we get PWSA - or elsewhere - to provide evidence that this change aggravated the leaching lead issue many to most Pittsburghers are faced with today?

3) If (1) and (2) are 'Yes', then will Pittsburgh utilize the 2011 ordinance CHAPTER 619: TOXIC TRESPASS RESULTING FROM UNCONVENTIONAL NATURAL GAS DRILLING to obtain enough money from the fracking industry and lessors to pay for the replacement of lead pipes within the city? The Toxic Trespass law is here: http://www.marcellusprotest.org/sites/marcellusprotest.org/files/Pittsburgh%20Toxic%20Trespass%20Ordinance.pdf

Many Pittsburgh homeowners (including myself, my test result came in at 9.63) and business owners will soon have to pay several thousand dollars each for a problem that likely did not exist before the combination of fracking contaminants and Veolia mismanagement aggravated the problem - caused lead pipes to once again leach lead in unsafe quantities. Can we not instead get those reponsible to pay for these changes?

Re: “Pittsburgh workers walk off jobs and rally Downtown to protest for higher wages

I remember working a minimum wage job. I worked in a grocery store and a guy shit his pants. I had to clean up shit. It sucked. After I cleaned up the shit, I enrolled in community college, because I didn't like cleaning up shit. So I worked that job, got my degree, and got a good job. But I shit my pants on the bus tonight stuck in traffic due to these protesters. I won't like it but I'll clean up my own shit.

Re: “Affordable-housing advocates rally as part of international housing summit in Pittsburgh

You do not have a right to live in property that is owned by someone else. If the government wants to create housing and let people live in it for subsidized rates, fine - but that means thousands and thousands of tax dollars spent on maintaining these properties, and more thousands spend on ensuring compliance with laws and leases. If you live in a private housing project, you have no god-given right to live in that private property. Most tenants are deserving and appreciative, but many tenants allow drug dealers into their units, bring violence onto properties, and create a danger for the families and children who live near them. These criminal tenants then get free attorneys who drag out evictions in many cases for a year or more, all the while terrorizing the people who live around them, giving the rest of the community a bad name. At the same time, landlords have to pay thousands for attorneys to fight against the free attorneys the tenants get just to evict the people selling drugs on their properties. Want more landlords to open up to subsidized housing? Change the eviction process to make it more friendly to landlords to get the people out who deserve to be out, instead of making landlords the bad guys.

Re: “Hillary Clinton makes her final Pittsburgh campaign stop at Heinz Field

Are the black voters sick and tired of the pandering they get from Democrats every four years? Do they remember Hillary Clinton supported a 1994 crime bill which led to the mass incarceration of young African-Americans which she referred to as super predators who must be brought to heel.?

Re: “Hillary Clinton makes her final Pittsburgh campaign stop at Heinz Field

Here they are again, telling us to vote, assuming that's all they need to do and they are all set. We can go vote allright - but we can rock the world and vote for Trump! I am sick of the routine and things have to change! Where have we gotten, why not try something different? Voting Trump on Tuesday!

Re: “Pittsburgh immigrant-rights advocates ramp up support for Martin Esquivel-Hernandez

This guy is facing felony re-entry charges. It seems pretty cut and dry to me. The fact of the matter is he doesn't have permission to be in the U.S and he has been deported before. Therefore guilty as charged.

Re: “PWSA addresses water-quality and billing problems

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!!

Re: “New initiative to increase walker safety is drawing ire of pedestrian advocates

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?

Re: “Rant: After more than 15 years, city apparently still can't tell cops apart

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...
