I feel bad for the person who had to type this list!

It does seem long, but is also a "catch up" list, going back to arrests from Dec. 2011. And possibly half of the list still are awaiting their hearings in Oct, so we'll see the same names reported after they have their day in court.

This should be a warning to everyone, DO NO DRIVE THROUGH BALDWIN DRUNK we will not tolerate it and we support our police in arresting anyone who decides it a good idea to do so, including residents. It seems excessive but necessary, I am gad to know that its safe to come home in Baldwin

me too
Margaret French September 19, 2012 at 04:27 PM
NB resident.... I don't know if it is that safe. There seems to be a lot of drunk drivers there. I am sure there will be more and second and third offenders.

People who are drinking shouldn't be behind the wheel of a car period. One thing good about Baldwin Police they are out there busting dui's. Now if they can get the drug dealers around Baldwin, like Whitehall police are doing it would be great.

Alcohol IS a drug. Moreover, the general sentiment of these comments seems to be: "arrested = guilty." Read The Bill of Rights, specifically Amendments IV, VI, VII, and VIII: Amendment IV The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Amendment VI In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence. Amendment VII In Suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise re-examined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law. Amendment VIII Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
The raw truth September 23, 2012 at 04:42 AM
The Baldwin police only want to make money from dui's they act like they care they don't even look into burglars or drug dealers it doesn't pay dui's biggest busines in the state all the police are cashin in just call them for something else then hold you breath and wait 3hrs later if they show up

2 DUI's within a month of each other and what do they do, blame others for their own stupidity. Thank goodness Baldwin Borough is doing their jobs and helping to keep drunks off the road before they kill someone from behind the wheel of a car. The Police do have reasonable cause to pull people over that are swerving all over the road and when they pull them over and they smell alcohol they have every right to search and seizure. Not many people that have been busted for DUI's ask for a jury trial as they know they are guilty.

<the general sentiment of these comments seems to be: "arrested = guilty." > You mean general comments of cc.

The raw truth- how much money does Baldwin get for each dui that they bust? I guess it is better then to live in Whitehall as the Police come when you call them and do not make you wait 3 hours to show up at your door like Baldwin does.
Jon Wain September 23, 2012 at 05:29 PM

The Whitehall police are great they give people a fare shake lived there for 18 yrs had my run ins with them but they weren't looking for all the hard working people's money in there pocket like Baldwin they pulled me over 7 times in 3 yrs of living there and gave warnings for turn signals and other bs they made up to see if I smelled like beer plain and simple and ack like jerks hey I pay your salary there's no need for it doesn't happen in Whitehall cops are respectful of you if your respectful of them Scott you need to straighten that out danko got it right keep up the great job setting examples for the other out of control departments
Bw's bs September 28, 2012 at 05:34 AM
Cc tell us how much you make in overtime for dui's we all know your a Baldwin cop how do you know that nobody gets a jury trial just a guess no people don't go that route because they are offered ard an if they loose a jury trial ard is off the table now possible jail time and a record I now three public defenders they tell me all about it. It's no slap on the wrist and almost impossible to win your case over three hundred people go through the courts downtown for dui's every week
cc September 28, 2012 at 12:21 PM
Leon he means your other name of ne12ukid, keep my name of your post as your nothing but a albatross on the Patch and love attacking people.
cc September 28, 2012 at 01:03 PM
sorry bw's bs but i'm not a cop in Baldwin but have ridden on many bike runs with Police Officers to raise funds for many worthy causes and they will be more than happy to explain about how they get over time when they have to go down to Allegheny County Court (downtown), for any type of case. They schedule their days off on days they have to appear and are paid overtime for this.

I wouldn't want to live in Baldwin as Whitehall is a better community and the police in Whitehall have class. My neighbor who has the beginning of Parkinson, was pulled over by Baldwin Police for a tail light that was out and because he was shaking,they accused him of drinking and gave him a sobriety test even though he tried to tell them about his disease. They took him to Jefferson for a blood test which came back negative but still tried to charge him with a DUI. Lucky the Magistrate threw the case out when he brought an attorney and papers from his doctors stating his illness and why he was shaking. My neighbor doesn't drive anymore but is always telling the story about how nasty Baldwin Police are.

I find it interesting that in this long list of DUIs one is missing that happened on Melvina maybe a month ago. A young couple's car was totaled because of one young man's indiscretion to drive totally inebriated. If it wasn't for a neighbor hearing the crash, he would have probably gotten away with it as, after totaling the car, he went home and parked his car in front of his house. Just another example of how the neighborhood is changing -- not for the better.
NE12Ukid November 04, 2012 at 09:51 PM
Kathleen, quite possible that has not come up yet. This list seems to be from arrests of May, June, July.
