'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Friday, May 3, 2013, 8:57 p.m.
 

It's a sad day when our town leaders — I use the term loosely — put their own political and personal agendas ahead of the people they represent. Why would the people of our town want a police chief who cannot obey the rules and laws he is paid to enforce? The few bullies on our council force their will on every one of our citizens. The bullies know who they are and should be ashamed of their actions. Why not do what is morally and politically correct and punish, not reward, the guilty person?

It seems the only council members who care about our town are Dick Reedy and Andrew Peters. The rest of them are so wrapped up in personal agendas that they could care less about the citizens they represent.

This used to be a nice place in which to live. But now with the animals running the zoo, most people would rather be anywhere but Kittanning.
