Protesters concerned about race relations in Pittsburgh camped outside Mayor Luke Ravenstahl's office overnight, and, when he failed to materialize by morning, they headed to his house... I wholeheartedly believe in the right to peaceful assembly, however, that does not give anyone the right to damage private property and to frighten people's young children, Ravenstahl said. Ravenstahl has a son, Cooper, 4.

funny how it was all right for the democrats to bus protesters to the homes of wall street employees....
What kills me is that they bury the story of a million people protesting Obamacare but give headlines to any size protest on Zimmerman.
I’m afraid we’re doomed as we have obviously lost the free press, a pillar of democracy.
Proving just how stupid they are. The Boy Mayor is on his way out, buried under a blizzard of corruption charges. Has rarely been seen in public between the time his police chief was convicted and this article.
Even if none of that was true, what is the mayor of Pittsburgh supposed to do about a resolved court case in Florida?
No, no it's not a time of deep reflection for America. As usual black agitators are demanding that white America be reflective over an alleged epidemic of white people killing black people that does not exist. Meanwhile, the black community is the least reflective community in America. Newborns are more reflective. Far too many black people refuse to look inwardly and attribute any of their problems to their own social pathologies, and they refuse to look at the big picture and recognize that the true inter-racial murder epidemic is blacks killing whites.
These people are insane. They should not be catered to. They should be rebuked with the strongest terms.
Doesn't matter to the moron crowd. He's a symbol and his failure to show up at the office and feed their egos hurt their feeeeeeeeelings.
Who, Ravenstahl or Zimmerman? ;-)
Should we start doing this?
I mean, I would LOVE to “sit in” at Lois Lerner’s house (of course I don’t have any idea where she lives, but it’s proabably in the DC Metro area.)
However, I generally hate it when people do this, at a person’s office is one thing, but families and children should be left out of things.
See this is the same debate, should we be better than them, or should we get right down in the gutter with them?
Of course, like the Tea Party v. Occupy Wall Street the media will ALWAYS portray our side as eeeeevil and their own side as angels.
But, if we’ve got the name, should we have the game?
perhaps we need a time place and manner law.
No protests in front of ANYONE’s home for any reason.
(more) trouble in the boy-mayor’s world?
Don’t forget the other grievance - stop knocking down so many of our abandoned houses.
They Demand: “an investigation of systemic criminalization, abduction, abuse and murder of black people.
And will they be happy when they find out that the answer IS: Black people in crime areas are by and large lazy, uneducated drug users who prey on each other, abuse each other and kill each other.
They lack parenting skills, they reuse to assimilate to a civil society. They lack job skills, they feel entitled to other people’s money, and they lack a work ethic.
Also, they refuse to be responsible for their own community, and teach personal responsibility.
If a rare person of color comes to lead them into a responsible and clean life, black people will assault and attack and marginalize that person.
There are no answers. Blacks, in those crime areas, are like Palestinians. They just want chaos and strife. For the most part, there really is no peace anywhere around them.
The smart ones get out and never look back.
Justice for Christopher Cervini before justice for Trayvon.
I know, they both got their justice, but fair is fair.
My small PA city will be holding a Trayvon rally at Noon Saturday downtown.
Participants are supposed to wear hoodies.
Accuweather RealFeel temperature is to be in the triple digits.
Whatever happens to those LIVs happens.
They better have a lot of purple drank to stay hydrated.
That was my first thought also. I suppose the next target of the protesters will be NASA. Then perhaps they'll protest outside the Swiss Embassy.
Or the county Prothonotary.
I'm suspecting that you might be an older Pittsburgher.
U.S. President Harry S Truman was introduced to a prothonotary during a campaign stop in Pittsburgh in 1948.
It is widely rumored that Truman's first reaction upon hearing the term "prothonotary" was to say "What the hell is a prothonotary?"
“Protesters concerned about race relations”
Funny how the very ones who claim to be concerned are the ones doing the most damage!
I’m not that old, but yes I was thinking of that anecdote with Truman.
We still have a Prothonotary in Westmoreland county.
IF I was Ravenstahl, I would ask those MORONS if Pittsburgh was in Sanford, Florida? I guess those morons want to cause trouble, because they don't know what a JOB is!
Post of the day! You have summed up in a few short sentences the truth.
Another post of the day. You guys are articulating this issue better than any of the talking heads on TV.
:) Well we can see the trend beginning in the mainstream now. With Detroit and Chicago. I know social security cuts have already effected government dependents and they are mad. THAT and there is no stopping the social justice spending, all of these marches and new “churches” and charities to carry this social justice message have to be paid for, right?
No cuts in vacation or leisure for the Obamas, or military build up for personal use.
SO- that means he has to distract from the coming cuts of SNAP funding and make it look like the racists don’t care about starting children.
When in fact the program is so corrupt that people are using the program as a black market by the millions and no one is going to starve.
The deals are done, I am sure. Something like- don’t defund Obamacare, and I will give you foodstamps???
I am reminded of THIS article: http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/13/will-obama-agree-to-entitlement-cuts-he-already-has/
where r those anti-obamacare protests?
Sorry, it was back when they were trying to pass Obamacare. Different time but still shows very selective news coverage.
