Re: “Pittsburgh Left: It’s time for whites to confront racism in a meaningful way

I kept reading the comments to find the inevitable one or two which would mention reverse racism as a problem. Which first off the word reverse racism is racist, racism is racism. But to continue, this is exactly the behavior the article is talking about. Change the marker and talk about a problem that is barely existent. For once can we talk about race in a way in which reverse racism is not brought up, it diminishes the conversation and justifies the acts of pthers.

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

You admit you're a hypocrite. Uh, you do realize the implications of being a hypocrite? It means you don't actually believe in presumption of innocence. It makes sense why you would judge Kang guilty before a trial- it's because you're a fat ass pussy with man titties.

Re: “Ball on the Bridge highlights LGBT ball culture on the Andy Warhol Bridge

It might have occurred to the author to bother to define the term "ball culture".

Re: “Mike Wysocki’s Mount Rushmores of Pittsburgh sports

Inarguable on the Pirates? Ralph Kiner and Honus Wagner might have something to say about that. McCutchen is not on their level yet. Also, Jock Sutherland and Pop Warner deserve honorable mention for college coaches.

Re: “It’s time we learned how to properly treat the victims of sexual assault

Every case is different. Ben had WITNESSES.
Anyone can make a complaint, however stupid. BUT, a charge cannot be brought until it is reviewed and there is probable cause. Your rationale is so warped, I am amazed you continue to keep this up.
No one is AGAINST the victim if there is one, and consider that it is Kang if he did not do anything wrong
There are no probablities. It is all or nothing. He did it or he did not.
The rape test showed?
The interview with the cabbie?
The video from the hotel?
Sexual assault is such an egregious violation of civilization it almost stands alone.
It's disgustingly awful.
So is punishing someone who is innocent.
If he's guilty, get rid of him.

Re: “If white America truly thinks Black Lives Matter, our society has a strange way of showing it

There was a black male from Minnesota who did what an office told him. He was shot dead in front of his girlfriend and child as he was reaching for his ID AS INSTRUCTED! The truth is that black people are treated differently than white people and that is what needs to change. When an officer tells you to do something they are not always correct, citizens have rights and officers often violate them. When you tell them, "you are violating my rights" they don't give a crap they want you to do what they said "because they are the law and they can break the law and get away with it!!" The police need better training. They should not instantly result to a tazer or shoot someone in vital organs. Because of a traffic stop.. stop and think about what you are doing morons..

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

I graduated law school. Anyone can file a complaint, even you for this same exact offense. BUT to levy a charge, there has to be a probable cause. Now, more than two weeks later, you would have the man SIT? I disagree with you, your logic is flawed.

Re: “The Shit List: Our guide to 10 state legislators from the Pittsburgh area who need to clean up their act

About Mike Turzai- I can 100% verify and attest to your claims that he prevents legislation that he doesn't agree with from being voted on. That's exactly what he did regarding a bill allowing pharmacists to provide vaccination to children 7 years and over. His wife is a pediatrician and any health related bills she doesn't like, her husband will make sure they never get voted on. I wrote about this a couple years ago but, no one seemed to care that our elected officials, Turzai in particular, prevent citizens from voting on laws and deciding their fate rather than him deciding for us. He needs to be held accountable for this and I for one would like to be front and center when a reporter asks him to explain his actions. I appreciate you publicizing this to make people aware and hopefully not vote for him again.

Re: “The Legend of Tarzan

Al Hoff, your unnecessary review is pointless and shallow. You're only criticism is that The Legend Of Tarzan was made at all. Tarzan fans are happy with the results. There is room for criticism, but you are clueless.

Re: “It’s time we learned how to properly treat the victims of sexual assault

Again...please use parallel examples when pressing a point of view. It helps people buy into your thinking. The 80 yr old woman's attacker in the example had been arrested and charged. Kang HAS NOT BEEN CHARGED with anything. Its quite simple. I have not heard any PR campaign on his behalf at all from the Pirates, MLB, their fans or anyone else. I'm sorry that doesn't fit the political agenda. I am not on Kang's side, not on her side. Neutral, unemotional positions are best for the two people and for our justice system in general. Luckily we are not in N. Korea kangaroo court - its the USA - not perfect but the best going. Leave politics at the door when dealing with justice.

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

Uh excuse me...not only hasn't he had due process...he hasn't been charged. I despise men who prey on women. I despise people who willingly ruin someone's life to advance a political agenda. Just collateral damage along the way I guess - see DUKE lacrosse, UVA fraternity. And many crimes are traumatic to victims - of course. As unseemly as assault is, it does not trump all other crimes. That's just a thinly veiled political agenda at work. At least lets see charges of some kind. C'mon.

Re: “Pittsburgh Left: Pittsburgh Pirates' Jung Ho Kang should sit during sexual-assault investigation

This may be the dumbest column I have ever read, and the author's follow up comment is even dumber. Rape and sexual assault cases have to be treated the same as other crimes because of a little thing known as due process, its in the US Constitution if you could be bothered to check. And it's not good enough to say that you agree 90% of the time that the accused is presumed innocent--they are entitled to that presumption 100% of the time. And exactly why should someone like Kang be suspended before a police investigation finds that there is sufficient evidence to bring charges? So that the alleged victim isn't offended by turning on a Pirates game and seeing that Kang is playing? Is that the "special dispensation" that you say the alleged victim should receive? What utter nonsense. What's really unfair is that the accusation against Kang by the alleged victim who is entitled to remain anonymous has been made public before the police investigation has been completed. So even if that investigation were to determine that charges should not be brought, Kang will be forever tainted by the accusation.

Re: “Independent animal kennel under fire for euthanasia techniques

He is beyond an asshole. Got my 2 Pitts, then demanded I meet him at a specific time or else. He also charged extra for the weekend. Verbally assaulted myself and my husband, then called the police and lied while pointing his gun at me. The corrupt in his pocket police came and arrested my husband. The story continues it was a nightmare!
