WILKINSBURG, Pa. — Police are investigating an unusual shooting in Wilkinsburg late Tuesday night.

Investigators said the victim was playing dominos with friends on a porch of a home around 11 p.m. when he decided to urinate over a side railing.

According to witnesses, someone below the porch could be heard yelling, "Yo, yo!" Moments later police said several shots were fired striking 35-year-old Roosevelt Robinson, of Wilkinsburg.

Robinson was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.

Great Leader has been doing this to the United States for three years. The sad news is many people believe him when he tells them it’s just a little rain.

Obviously no foul, no harm didn’t apply. Too bad you don’t have commercials during domino games.

I can’t see the video. What kind of porch are we talking about that someone can be below it? I must have a different idea of what ‘porch’ means.

In a lot of urban areas, "porch" and "balcony" are used interchangeably.

“Yellow Rain was a 1981 political incident in which the United States Secretary of State Alexander Haig accused the Soviet Union of supplying T-2 mycotoxin to the Communist states in Vietnam and Laos for use in counterinsurgency warfare.[1]

Refugees described many different forms of attacks, including a sticky yellow liquid falling from planes or helicopters, which was dubbed “yellow rain”. The US government alleged that over ten thousand people had been killed in attacks using these chemical weapons.[2]”

At this point in history Wilkinsburg is a toilet, so I can see how the poor fellow was confused.

It used to be when someone such as a gunfighter came to a bad end, they said “he died with his boots on.”

All they can say about this guy is, “he died with his d!ck out.”

Wilkinsburg is a suburb of Pittsburgh, a very hilly area. There are places where you can commit suicide by jumping out a basement window. I kid you not.

The locals call Wilkinsburg "We'll-kill-yinz-burg" as it is not considered a very desirable area. My cousin and his wife were going to grad school at Pitt and managed to rent an apartment with about twice the space for less money just two blocks away from Braddock Street which is the eastern boundary between Pittsburgh and Wilkinsburg. Such is its reputation even in the areas of the burb considered relatively safe.

When I was a kid I had a job cutting grass for a local real estate developer. When they sent us to one particular house they described the lot as "you can stand at the edge of the front yard and take a p*ss on the roof". Always counted my fingers and toes when we wrapped-up there.

“He really managed to pi$$ off that guy.”

The saying I’ve heard is “I’d rather be pi$$ed off than pi$$ed on.” Apparently the guy downstairs was both.

Sometimes fortune and fate work together to make sure that the paths of two nasty people cross one another, thereby sparing us and the rest of society the unpleasant prospect of encountering them.

The shooter will likely be caught and sent to prison.
The filthy pi$$ freak goes to the big urinal in the sky.

The shallow end of the gene pool effervesces with happiness.

LOL! And you're probably still talking about some of the better areas, right?

I have to go to Pittsburgh on business a couple of time per year. My appointments are all within walking distance of downtown, so I take the commuter bus from a local shopping center.

It is $4.50 and back each way which, as you know, hardly pays for parking downtown. The first time I took it, I was really, really nervous and got a 6:30 a.m. bus for an 8:30 a.m. appointment figuring there was no way in hell the bus could meet their scheduled hour or so travel time to downtown with Pittsburgh rush hour traffic being what it is.

To my pleasant surprise, it actually has a great on-time schedule due to traveling most of the distance on special busways which, I am told, were once trolley line rights of way.

If you think Wilkinsburg is a run down third world town from the eye level on the streets, you should see it from the mini-canyons which the busses travel through! I've seen back alleys in Bangkok which were better kept and where urinating and even pooping in the streets is considered normal.

In a lot of urban areas, "porch" and "balcony" are used interchangeably.

My front porch is about 10 feet off the ground.

It's not in an urban area.

Yes, I've urinated off of it.

Wilkinsburg was once an important town to the Westinghouse empire. The air brake facility was in nearby Swissvale snd the rest of it was just over the hill in East Pittsburgh. Westinghouse employee Dr. Frank Conrad virtually invented the radio industry, broadcasting from his garage in Wilkinsburg.

Today it is more like a very hilly Detroit. The very first serious gang problems in the Pittsburgh area 25 years ago were centered in Wilkinsburg and in McKees Rocks (hometown of Ohio Gov. Kasich)

Besides, any Pittsburgher can tell you that all the really good public urination is happening on the South Side.

Too many bars. Too few bathrooms.

There was a story in our local fishwrap a couple of years ago with a rather humorous article on how the local fuzz was having a field day issuing citations on the southside on a Saturday night, including one to three women squatting together.

Maybe the boy mayor told them to cool it because it was cutting in on his drink tax revenue. But it sounded more productive for raising revenue than parking in an alley with a radar gun at the bottom of a long hill.

“Old” Whizz story.

AN aide ran up to LBJ and said MLK just peed in the snow on the front lawn.
LBJ said, no problem it will go away.
Aide: “But it is in Lady Birds hand writing”.

Actually the #1 complaint of people who actually live on the South Side is drunks from Carson Street using their yards as a toilet.
