Wrong ‘blitz' targets

It simply amazes me how a police chase originating in Homestead and flowing onto East Carson Street in Pittsburgh turned into not one but five police officers who were working off-duty security firing at least 12 bullets at a man without a gun.

Could there have been a better way to handle the incident? I do not know, since I was not present.

Yet, how is it that South Side business owners will be paying for it in the form of Mayor Ravenstahl's spin in hopes of re-election? The city will harass the business occupants and owners with this so-called “blitz.”

Let's step up enforcement on the South Side? Really, Luke, how is it that the businesses are to blame for this crazy incident?
