The police are doing their jobs well. They are to be commended. But read the last three paragraphs again. The lazy prosecutors and uncaring courts will have these guys back out on the street almost immediately and they are coming back mad with a vengeance. Had the criminal justice system done their job in the past, we wouldn't be having problems with these guys today.

This area is so solidly (ignorantly) Democrat, that the national (and local) Democratic party can count on a solid "D" vote no matter what they do or don't do to us. We have seen this area lied to and ignored over and over again. We just don't learn. Little Timmy is about useless in Washington; and what has the "Car Tsar" done to help his home valley? The only answer that has any hope of helping us and our children is: MOVE OUT of HERE.

More concealed-carry and more stand-your-ground laws would help. Let several of these thug/animals get shot and the game would lose its allure.

It's the Mahoning Valley and he has a "D" behind his name. Are you beginning to see a pattern yet?

Never. As long as the sheeple blindly keep pulling the "D" lever, the Valley will continue to wallow in the cronyism scum pond.

These attorneys are not relying on some contingency fee from this piddling little case. They are being amply rewarded by Belmont Ave in order to assure Cafaro's boy McNally gets elected. Just the cost of politics in this valley.

This is, without a doubt, the most irresponsible, promiscuous op-ed piece I have ever read. If the Vindicator editors wrote it – they should be dismissed. If they bought it, then they even more ignorant than I imagined. This piece (of something other than editorial writing) completely ignores the facts. The Republicans will not shut down the government and create chaos. That blame will rest entirely with the Senate Democrats and O-blame-a. The House plan continues funding for government programs except ObamaScare. The fiscally conservative and prudent reductions that were begun two years ago continue. If the government shuts down it will be because O-blame-a and the House Democrats want to protect a seriously defective program to the exclusion of all other considerations.

Sammarone's selection of the costly CBS service is suspicious. This "bait-and-switch" tactic of CBS is typical of how that firm operates - low-ball first bid and then cost overuns and outrageous future price increases. I would be checking to see how much support CBS and its owner is providing to the Mayor in his rebid for Council President. This is allegedly a very common practice of CBS and its owner. Be sure to check for unreported "in-kind" contributions given to a local PR firm that never show up on campaign finance reports.

@300 - Maybe you should learn to read before you pick up a dictionary. Where did the words "phrase, saying or remark" occur in my prior remark? Your comment simply reinforces my pet peeve. Words can and do find their way into the dictionary after enough people use them incorrectly often enough to become considered in "general use". Still doesn't make it right.
