Re: “Opinion: If Steelers coach Joey Porter's past actions are relevant to recent arrest, then so are those of the arresting officer

Porter attacks bouncer and Cops. Wacko people attack cop for arresting Porter. Sums up this article. Video evidence is kind of hard to change.

I saw it personally when a police officer outright lied to a judge about some facts, and when I said that I could prove the lie with VISUAL EVIDENCE, the judge in question denied me the chance to prove the officer's lie. In summary: THEY'RE ALL IN CAHOOTS.

Porter displayed to the world his character in the playoff game against Cincinnati last year. And the Steelers showed all of their class when they gave him a game ball for his dirty actions. Not an ounce of class in this town.

Going back nearly ten years in an officers past is thankfully not relevant to Joey Porters defense. The evidence is. I hope Porter is innocent but attacking the arresting officers credibility shouldn't be relevant just because Joeys a Steeler.

Re: “Opinion: If Steelers coach Joey Porter's past actions are relevant to recent arrest, then so are those of the arresting officer

As per Police Officer Abel's , prior incident, most of us were not there, when it happened, I vaguely recall the incident.

There is a very old police technique, called Buffaloing, it was used in the old days , by men such as Wyatt Eyrup they would pull the revolver from their holster, and have control of the grip, they use the bottom of the grip and swipe it, from about the ear forward, so as to subdue a violent and or out of control person, instead of shooting them!

I'am guessing here the officer was most likely carrying a Department Authorized Glock Pistol, Most likely when this off duty officer performed the Buffalo Technique, with his Glock, he generated enough energy and force, to accidently discharge his sidearm.

This past year, I observed a you-tube video made by a Firearms engineer , he had a live round in the chamber of a Glock Pistol, the Video, I believe was filmed either in Austria or Germany, he Took the Glock Model Pistol in hand, his finger was no where near the trigger and he proceeded too shake the Glock Pistol, The Pistol discharged.........

These Modern plastic Handguns are not the all Steels revolver's or Semi-Auto Handguns and are not intended to Buffalo nor Pistol whip some with.

In a Pistol whipping mode The Officer would have grabded the Glock by the front end of the slide between the muzzle and Trigger are using the butt as a hammer, when the Glock discharged he would have injured himself in that 2008 incident!

Great article. That officer should not be on the force. He's a disgrace to humanity. Should be in prison. I wish more reporters had your insight. Having said all this I'm positive the officer will continue being a scum and retire with a pension that you and I pay for.

Re: “Opinion: If Steelers coach Joey Porter's past actions are relevant to recent arrest, then so are those of the arresting officer

From my understanding of the Joey Porter case, is this in a prior incident at this club, Mr. Porter was asked to leave and not come back!
Mr. Porter should not have gone back.
Mr. Porter is a gown man, he made an unwise decision with a lack of common sense, in this decision.
From my understanding te same Security person that escorted him out the last time was working, he stated from my understanding that M. Porter was not welcome back.
From my understanding the security officer stated that on the prior occasion Mr. Porter had made a specific threat directed at this Security Officer, I was told.
The Police were summoned The Officer's prior incident has nothing to do with this incident, unlike Mr. Porters incident's.
You can not touch a Police Officer, period...... That is aggravated Assault....... In 99% of cases the officer ends up dropping the charge or the District Attorney's office or some higher authority does.......

Re: “Recently I was visiting my Mom, and when driving into Churchill on Penn Avenue I saw a copper statue of Abraham Lincoln beside the road. I'm pretty sure that Honest Abe didn't stop in Wilkinsburg while President. Why a statue of him there?

At least, as far as the Lincoln statue is concerned the students did raise SOME monies for a figure that may have not have been as public as it was almost 100 years ago! Also, a former dead president didn't have to visit a town in order for a memorial to be erected, think of Mt. Rushmore! Give them some credit instead of sounding so disparaging. Remember, most kids don't even remember a Lincoln statue at that corner, it was in the borough bldg. a long time!

Re: “Hey, what's the origin of the names of McKeesport and McKees Rocks? Who was this Mr. McKee?

No, McKeesport was not originally settled by the family of David McKee, as it was earlier settled by Seneca indians, including Queen Aliquippa. http://www.varsitytutors.com/earlyamerica/…

Re: “Deitch: Just because Democrats lost the election doesn't mean the battle is over

if you voted for trump you are a vile subhuman

70 years to demonstrate something resembling human decency is enough of a chance

the mainstream media continues to normalize trump by pretending his support was rooted in something other than his hostility to vulnerable people

Re: “An undocumented immigrant has spent his time in Pittsburgh serving this community. As he faces deportation, it’s time to return the favor.

I tried to like the above comment, and it wouldn't let me....it only allows dislikes... hmmm......Also the US Attorney David Hickton was nominated by President Obama. Does Mr. Esquivel-Hernandez have a criminal record? Trump, hasn't taken office yet btw, and I believe Mayor Bill Peduto and others are using this politically motivated story without all the facts to push their agenda. A little thinking for yourself can help you see through it. We welcome following the law and legal immigration! There are a lot of people waiting their turn legally. No one likes to get cut in front of in line.

"Im pissed that everything ive worked for to have equal rights is at stake".

Cliff, you're over-the-top hysterical for no reason. No one is going to abgrogate your constitutional rights. It's a fantasy created by the Trump-hating liberal media. Chill.

Re: “Deitch: Just because Democrats lost the election doesn't mean the battle is over

Thank you for widely distributing this message. As a Gay White Blue Collar guy in a very conservative area ive been singled out. Yes im pissed that alot of democrats sat at home. Im pissed that everything ive worked for to have equal rights is at stake but it doesnt have to be. We have to remember that the constitution gives us those rights and its time that we make that stand. We dont need a court order or judgements to do so. We are people as well. Its not going to be easy we are gonna get beat up in the process. But united we can fight back and look forward to 2018 when our coalition can not only take over a majority of state governments but we can get big gains in the house. Alot of Trump supporters are already having buyers remorse as they see his "experts" are mostly lobbyist and extremists. He also has to have money to fund these programs. I myself have already change my tax withholdings so that there is little to none going to the government till tax day. As long as theres a threat to my equallity the Trump government will get nothing. Im prepared to take a stand and fight. It may seem minisule as one person but as others join we have the ability to defund the government as individuals and force our voices to be heard. U wanna fund ur hate ur gonna have to fund it urself.

Re: “Deitch: Just because Democrats lost the election doesn't mean the battle is over

The election is over, but apparently the lying will never stop. Especially by the liberal media who are really pissed. Trump says "unfair" and the media call it railing. Then he says "Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country" and they call it a flip-flop. No it wasn't. Folks, put on your media BS filter because there's a lot more coming from the crybabies.

The republican acted out after Obama became president and now they want everybody to give mr. trump an chance? Well I will look at him as they did Obama. I will give him the same respect as they did Obama, the "you lie" will be fitting for mr. trump and maybe when we stop letting them bully us in respecting their president elect ,but no one else is allow to govern then let the republicans know enough is enough. We will not let them get away with one sided governance.

Re: “Deitch: Just because Democrats lost the election doesn't mean the battle is over

The tired narrative that trump is a racist sexist fascist who would spell the end of democracy and fill the country with hate is starting to get pathetic. The very same people making these unfounded claims are hypocritical and doing the exact things they claim trump will do. Democrats and/or spoiled and entitled children are reacting violently because they didn't win an election and hence didn't get their way. They are refusing to accept the results of a fair open and free election and demanding "someone else" be made president. These people don't believe in democracy or fairness. For them it's my way or the highway. Democrats once again proven themselves to be the very thing they protest against. pathetic.

Re: “Deitch: Just because Democrats lost the election doesn't mean the battle is over

While I fully support the whole range of LGBT rights, abortion rights, equal pay, etc., I am a bit confused by the focus on these issues where the Dems ARE more progressive than the Repugs. I am sick of Dems calling themselves progressive based on these issues, when very few differ from Repubs on more important matters: the obscene military budget and imperialistic hubris when infrastructure is crumbling, 20% of children go to bed hungry, millions of families have 2 spouses working full time at or near minimum wage and are poor by any honest definition. 5 trillion on 15 years of war, another 5 trillion on Bush tax cuts that went almost entirely to the top 1-5%. Wall st runaway greed continues. Nixon and Eisenhower would be appalled that the country has veered so far right that would be center-left Dems today. Old guy with too long a bus ride.
