I often as not go to http://ujsportal.pacourts.us/DocketSheets/MDJ.aspx and take a peek at names that are reported on police blotters. That website gives you a court summary, including punishment for offenses. I had thought, in my old age, that I'd simply rob banks and commit petty crimes, living off the misery of others, in the event that there was some sort of societal collapse and my pension crapped out. If caught, I'd have health care, 3 hots and a cot, and cable TV. Incarceration seemed like a pretty good alternative to living in a cardboard box under the Smithfield Street Bridge. Forget it! The more I read, the more I realize that its really hard to get thrown in jail. I'm going to have to change my plans if I want free health care and room and board as a ward of the State. It would appear that if you wish to be a criminal, Allegheny County would be your first choice of residence.

So that's where we judge people!!!!! Lol..... Look me up! Just sayin!!!! I bet even In my bad days I got more volunteer hrs in that let's say the judgers!!! I love my colorful past cause I learned not to judge!!!! Remember the bad who cares what you do good!!!! Don't see this site saying a thing about a navy seal on a roof with a laser thinking our president was gonna blow up the artillery killing our people ! Do think he knew there was some kind of drone or help above him ready to help? I do! Erin talk about that... What's your tale on a president who called on the Navy Seals and they did their job but when they asked for help they were denied! !!!! The problems no matter what start at the top!!!!

Jason: O.K.,just for giggles, I looked you up. It appears you may have imbided a bit too much, over a decade ago, you got charged with a few summary offenses, and got on with your life without further incident. Congratulations. You sir, are one of the success stories, and much of the credit goes to you for changing your mind about how to conduct yourself. I'm a bit confused as to how you're making a connection between a reported drug offense, and Obama's failure to protect the embassy personnel in Benghazi. While I agree that the Libya situation is awful, I'd encourage you to write your own blog about it, and lay the facts on the line.

Hi guys - I'm stepping in here. The PA courts website is a great source of information, but we can't use the information it holds to out people on these message boards for past indiscretions. Even though that site contains public information, it could be considered a violation of privacy to post that information, unsolicited, about your neighbors. I only publish information from that site when it applies to current cases. If you choose to look through it on your own time, then please keep it to yourself. Thanks!

Jason, I am not sure how these 2 topics fit together but I absolutely agree with you on the issue of how our President handled the attack on our embassy in Lybia. Where is the outrage and why is the media not reporting this? It makes me furious! Although I believe most media outlets are very selective of the stories that they report, and that includes Patch and our local goverment issues. BTW - I am a Democrat and cannnot in good conscience vote for this current President, the attack and misinformation on 9/11 sealed the deal for me.

Your report is bullshit. You guys need to get your facts straight before publishing false reports. My attorney will be contacting you.
