Re: “Pittsburgh joins in National Moment of Silence for victims of police brutality

I said something on my FaceBook page about it, and i literally got confronted by some residents of a certain area of the city... for what i posted on FaceBook, problem is they were African American, i spoke on a similar incident that happen a few years back in the town i live in, they started addressing armed black men and how they shoot at police, because their brother was on the Force and their Father is a community.. like i told them the issue is not about armed black men we are talking about unarmed black men, its almost like our own people were justifying what happened to this child, i did tell them they would never understand, until it happens to they son's... I couldn't believe that what i said.. and i may not have been right about everything, but the whole situation got taken out of context, we are having a rally in my city tomorrow to address these issues...

Re: “Hearings for ridesharing companies begin next week

Rideshare companies business model is based on regulatory arbitrage, dubious insurance practices, and exploitation of drivers they've lured into signing-up by making fraudulent claims about potential earnings. These drivers have woken up to this reality and are uniting to raise awareness of their woes and bring an end to their exploitation. Ride-sharing drivers and the riding public should visit www.UberPeople.net to learn more about the true state of ride-sharing. Thanx!

Re: “Experts say Pittsburgh triathletes exposed to unsafe levels of fecal bacteria

Dear poster, you could not be more wrong. Thank you for playing into the fears of everybody else who does not have their facts straight.

Re: “Experts say Pittsburgh triathletes exposed to unsafe levels of fecal bacteria

And this is why when my friends with boats ask if I want to go for a cruise on the river with them I politely decline by making up a B.S. story about having to help a friend move. Yeah enjoy motor boating down the Allegheny or the other two putrid stinking toilets that run through our fair city. You might as well stick your head in a toilet bowl and flush it a couple of times, that's what's spraying on your face when you are flying downour rivers at 40, 50 mph.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

As a Pittsburgher born and bred, Dejan is about the only print journalist I've followed in recent months. His style is honest but fair and his sense of humor adds to his efforts. He doesn't take himself too seriously and is always willing to interact with his readers. Congratulations to Dejan and good luck! He is making a bold move and I believe it will pay off!

Re: “Organic farmer seeks to halt natural-gas facility

I guess all the Health problems all the experts who work with the chemicals are wrong... Just a coincidence... The smoking industry told their sales people smoking was safe too! Hello- they have an agenda! Their agenda is money not people- not anything else! Not even their employees. If this is so safe let the Twp supervisors or the farmers who want it put it on their land!

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

Dejan's columns and blogs are often interesting enough, but, wow, does he demonstrate an ego beyond belief, which intrudes in his writing. From his constant and shameless plugs for radio appearances and other media events to the recent (and more frequent) nasty comments directed at any participants in his chats who dare to disagree with him or question his views, Dejan has gone over the top with his perceived local celebrity. I always wondered how many "Press" colleagues were thrilled to see him depart their office; now, I frankly wonder if he simply wore out his welcome at the "Trib." Bob Smizik is still the standard for Pittsburgh sportswriters.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

To Jorgensen, Jay Mariotti is not a bigger name than Dejan Kovacevik in 2014. Maybe in 2005, pre-allegations and when he was still on ESPN.
It's simple: Dejan has 51k Twitter followers ... Jay has 2k.

Re: “Trib sports writer Dejan Kovacevic leaves paper to start website

Um, good luck with that. Jay Mariotti, a much bigger name, tried this same concept and it was a bomb. Is Dejean really going to travel to road games? How's that gonna work when the Steelers and Pens are both on the road at the same time? How bout when the Pirates have a big story breaking and he's allegedly in Columbus covering the Pens?
Methinks it'll really be just Dejean bloviating from his couch on topics, doing no real reporting. So, on that basis, I'm out.

Re: “No announcements planned after Peduto promises swift investigation of Pride altercation

This is why we need police officers who actually LIVE in Pittsburgh - not hillbillies from the surrounding area who don't know how to behave in a city.

Re: “Results of this year's Pittsburgh Underground Music Awards

This was fixed in my opinion. Congrats to EVERYONE that won!!! & my opinion is only geared toward two catorgories....-male rap artist & -rap album/mixtape.... and when it comes to actual grind, work ethic, lyricism & consistency of a nominated "male rap artist" then -Quizzle The Cannon shoulda won OR actual view numbers, quality product nd popularity of a nominated "rap album/mixtape" then -The Underdog Pt.2 should have won! Thats just my honest opinion but i mean if you disagree then hit up datpiff or google or wherever else. Actual resumes and numbers dont lie. It was fixed nd personal favorites were awarded!
