Charges build for shooting suspect

Tribune-Review

Reading through these articles raises more questions than are answered. What was this part time officer doing in a West View alley at two o'clock in the morning. He didn't live in West View Borough and he was not on duty. Speculation is heightened by the secret manner in which the officials are treating this case. Questions that beg answers are getting silence! This only leads to even more skepticism.

What is being covered-up? Were drugs involved? Was this about a love triangle? How much did the inexperience of this 19 year old, part-time officer, affect the outcome? Was the safety of the public put in jeopardy when this part time officer introduced a gun into this fracus? Did he overstep his bounds? What took place in that alley, and why? What is the alleged assultant's side to this story? What is the real truth? If this story is as one-sided as the newspaper spin suggests, then why is this entire incident being treated in such a guarded closed-mouth manner?

These articles begin to answer some questions. A woman was involved! Drugs were involved, in the form of alcohol. Which North Hills bars served an underage, intoxicated part-time officer? And...again...what is the truth? The accounts givin in the two newpapers seem like they are covering two different events. Most likely the truth isn't what the intoxicated policeboy had to say, nor in the spin given by cHIEF hOLTGRAVER!

Perhaps wEST vIEW pOLICE cHIEF cHARLES hOLTGRAVER
needs to explain why he gave any consideration whatsoever
to someone with a nose for trouble like this man!

Perhaps wEST vIEW pOLICE cHIEF cHARLES hOLTGRAVER
can be asked some additional questions!

  • Is public intoxication acceptable for wEST vIEW police officers?
  • Is the cHIEf concerned that Hein drove, or was about to drive a car with blood-alcohol at 0.18?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW police officer be permitted to carry a gun?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW police officer frequent local bars?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW police officer frequent local bars with a convicted felon?
  • Which local bars are guilty of serving intoxicated patrons ?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW officer frequent local bars with an alleged drug informant?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW police officer be in an alley at 2 A.M.?
  • Should an intoxicated wEST vIEW police officer with a gun be in an alley at 2 A.M.?
  • If the alleged shooter was a drug informant, was one day a week Officer Hein on a drug task force?
  • Is underage drinking by a recently turned 20 year old condoned?
  • Was bad judgement used in placing a gun in the hands of someone this irresponsible?
  • Is it ever a good idea to give a gun and badge to a 19 or 20 year old?
  • Was a thorough and complete backround check made, before putting someone like this on the streets?
  • Does this individual get another chance to be a risk to public safety in wEST vIEW?
  • When will the cHIEF be honest, for a change, responding to questions from wEST vIEW residents?


    This latest episode only serves as a reminder of the extremely poor judgement exhibited by cHIEF cHARLES hOLTGRAVER over the years. Almost ten years ago he began his reign as chief by repeatedly citing a vehicle under the Pennsylvania Motor Vehicle code for sidewalk obstruction, while that vehicle was totally and completely parked on private property. And now this same poor judgement puts an intoxicated boy on the streets with a gun!

    wEST vIEW Council needs to be more proactive and exercise more control in future police appointments to make up for the cHIEF's poor judgement....if they plan on retaining hOLTGRAVER as cHIEF.

It is absolutely incredible that a man blessed with intellectual superiority , stupendous knowledge and uncanny abilities, would find himself in this type of situation.

This is the same person who has the gift of simply looking at a photograph, and being able to determine precisely where the property line lies. A person has to wonder if Mr. Presutti still possesses this unique ability, which would certainly make property surveyors worldwide completely obsolete!


wEST vIEW's answer to the late great Johnny Cochran, vanilla faced Attorney Michael Witherel, attempted to have concealed weapons charges dismissed. He argued that the gun couldn't have been completely concealed in his suit pocket because it wouldn't fit in there -- the handle would stick out. "To quote the late, great Johnnie Cochran," he told Judge Lawrence O'Toole, "If it doesn't fit, you have to acquit."

Figure it out yourself from the figures in the Tribune-Review article.......

Using the figure of 18,000 gallons per quarter as stated in the article,
the average resident used to pay $9.93 plus $.81 times 18 or $14.58 for a total of $24.51
..........................now the cost is $22.04 plus $2.82 times 18 or $50.76 or a total of $72.80
