It really looks nothing like the rendering though.

What direction does the front of the building face. I always drive by what I think is the backside on the BA.

I know a lot of teachers that would not, could not, carry a weapon or be expected to use effectively in an emergency situation like what is suggested.  That in no way makes them bad teachers.  These are very distinct abilities and careers.  (I also know police officers and military that shouldn't teach. They aren't mutually exclusive, but also aren't the same.)

I believe the suggestion is that teachers are allowed, not required to carry a weapon. So it allows for your "dangerous with a sharp pencil" teachers to decide not to carry a weapon.

said rendering




On the west side of the picture, just about the bottom edge, is the current "Riverparks Kayak Access" which I would assume Kayakers could also use.

I believe the problem is that the river has channels, flow patterns, etc. The "Wave Park" that spawned that Kayak ramp I just mentioned was there due to swift currents on the west side. I'm no hydrological engineer (but I did stay at a HolidayInn Express) but I believe there are some pretty big challenges to the whole dam plan trying to create rapids on the opposite side of where they currently are, but then also not so rapid that you're flooding out the nature walk just south of it. Going with the more natural location dropped the Dam construction cost from $39M to $33M and since the Dam and bridge are part of the same pool of money, $6M saved on the Dam is $6M more that can go towards making the bridge nicer. (And back when they did the old bridge they didn't have to pay $9M for design and engineering)

I'm not saying right or wrong, but is it possible doors were locked and they couldn't get in?  My personal belief is if you took the oath to protect others that means going into the line of fire.  Whether or not I could have done it, I can't say because I've not been put in that situation.  None of us know our true values or what our actions would be until we are faced with the actual situation.  I believe there's a bit more information needed before I'm going to pass judgement and call these guys cowards.

I guess I'm just not easily impressed.




I acknowledge it is a lot of stuff overall, but just seemed like there was tons of momentum downtown from 2013 to early-2016 and since then most of those projects are still not done although quite a few are finished and a few are in process. I'm really excited to see some more of this stuff finished, but when I drive around and see an almost countless array of empty lots all around the area, it is a bit discouraging. If those planned developments had followed anything close to the original timelines, I would be thrilled and downtown would be really quite a bit more interesting.



Sorry I couldn't resist....

Now it's coming out that it wasn't just the onsite deputy that didn't go into the building. The next three deputies also stayed outside and pointed guns at the building from their cars.

It wasn't until city police showed up that anyone went inside.

Sounds about right.

No worries. He'll invoke that magic phrase, "I was in fear for my life" and he'll walk.

Well-known medical marijuana advocates complaining to a Pittsburgh County judge that their car full of weed was improperly searched on a pretext is not likely to get a favorable outcome.
