Thanks to Chris Twomey of The Pittsburgh Channel for posting this raw video from reporters' Q&A with Mayor Luke Ravenstahl and Police Chief Nate Harper. You can look in by clicking here. I was going to post it as a podcast, but Chris kindly agreed to offer up the video.
One way or the other, I'll be blogging more about this story tomorrow. (I was off sick today.)
