Fed Lawsuit Against PA Parole Board, Suspects Sought in UD Student Shooting, Mummers Museum Upgrades
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

The family of slain Philadelphia police officer Moses Walker Jr. has filed a federal lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole. Walker's surviving relatives cite numerous breakdowns within the parole board that allowed accused triggerman Rafael Jones to slip through the cracks. In their suit, they say that confessed gunman Rafael Jones should have been behind bars because he was in violation of his probation after testing positive for drug use.

Police are searching for two suspects in the shooting death of a University of Delaware student late Monday night. New Castle County Police were called at about 9:20 a.m. to the Studio Green West Apartment complex for the report of a person shot. When they arrived, they found the victim, identified by police as 22-year-old Peter DiSabatino, unresponsive with a gunshot wound to his upper body. The circumstances surrounding the deadly shooting remain under investigation.

The Mummers Museum in South Philadelphia is in the process of getting a facelift. Mummery is a Philadelphia tradition that dates back more than 400 years. When the recession hit a couple of years ago, it became harder to generate the $275,000 it takes each year to run the Mummers Museum. Eventually wear and tear took its toll, and parts of the building, especially outside, fell into disrepair. Nearly $120,000 in private donations from both corporations and individuals, coupled with elbow grease from volunteers, means a fresh coat of paint, new flat-screen TVs, renovated bathrooms, and repairs to an outdoor concert yard. The mummers’ community is hoping that the upgrades will mean a new stream of revenue for the museum.

Weather, November 14
