So Bart Weidlich got in trouble for asking Jeff Piazza how it felt to be a rat. I now he knows, he just ratted out Bob Reilly.

How can a guy who cops a plea and agrees to sell ouy his friends for a lessor penalty be believed?

it is his word against Reilly's. Meanwhile, the drug dealers are safe because only local cops are doing drug work.

Did anon 4:13 mean that drug dealers are safe because the Feds are caught up in the huge stings locally? Sorry folks but I just can't get excited when a guy looking for a deal points a finger at another guy and all we have is the "dealer's" word. That to me is no evidence, it is a life ring for the admitted bad guy. In Pizza Town, this type of evidence would be thrown out with the garbage.

okay, seriously, either people are stupid or just looking the other way. This whole bunch that's been getting nailed, including Reilly, have all been cutting deals for years and many people were aware. I'm more disgusted that it took this long to catch some of them. And it's just the beginning. Isn't it interesting Todd hasn't been mentioned yet in any of this??? Even though he was Skrep's partner in...............well.....um, taking care of the county? I hope all of you one lever pulling incumbent electing robots will finally wake up after this. But I'm afraid that won't happen.
