  1. Hey F.B.I.! You jackoffs should be looking into the riots at the Zappala Crime Family’s for profit Juvie detention center in Butler County, a/k/a “Cash for Kids II.” Don’t get caught with your pants down again. The taxpayers are paying Western Pennsylvania Child Care Services to house, feed, supervise and rehab juvenile offenders from across the state. What the taxpayers are getting is a theft of honest services by the Zappala mob when three riots in one month shows a failure to secure and protect kids and staff. There have been numerous injuries and the hired hands are fleeing. Maybe you could suggest to your friends at C.I.D. That an audit is in order. This time, when the fur flies, you jerkoffs can rightfully take some credit, or you can keep playing footsie with Whitey Bulger.
