Everyone knows it was Officer Perciavalle. Watkins at his finest – this is just another nail in Watkins, Couch and Losers coffins.

Disturbing. Shocking. In my opinion, this guy needs help. This is not normal.

I’ve sent memes far worse than this today. I think it was a mistake group msg. He promised first order of business was to ask state police to take over the Deltondo case. Now they are pissed.

I agree Raven, who sends this type of garbage out to a workforce? Any other job and you are fired. Let the chips fall where they may.

WELL, It is not like it was a dick pic or nothin’….apparently that is a big mitigating factor…
Not sure of this guy’s guilt, innocence or abilities as a police officer. But I am sure that he should not speak on camera

wtf

Hoojibs- not being a dick pic is a big difference because if it was, THEN there would be intent to corrupt a minor. From my understanding, this was a meme passed around and shared. And, if this was an attempt to corrupt a minor, her parents would not have been included. It’s not something I would find humorous but this was a joke, not porn, not a selfie or picture of anyone in Beaver County.

I can’t see anyone thinking this officer caused any harm.
This is retaliation

Wtf- not arguing your very valid points. Was saying that our 2 day acting Chief sounds like an ignoramus when he speaks and should probably let his lawyer (unless said lawyer is going to call the deceased victim whose body is not even cold yet. A Frequent Flyer) do the explaining. Could you see JFK or Winston Churchill saying “It’s not like it was a dick pic, or nothin”. The man was supposedly in the upper echelon of the PD and thought that was a sound statement to make? Let the lawyer talk

Oh Raven! Lord’s be praised! Mungo was not able to find your other posted opinion that seems to have disappeared, the one where Mungo was certain this was the official jumping of the shark for your writing carrer! Truly psychoanalytic depiction of the mentally macabe, but might Mungo proffer an alternate possibility. Remember in school when we were young and there were the boys who engaged in activity’s such as eating the paper paste on the desk, literally licking windows in the rear of the school bus, maybe the ones who snorted crushed smarties, or lingered long and proud in the wood shop lacquer room?!? Well dear Raven they grew up and became employed…male childish behavior is alive and well with these now adult’s who often frequent all of the podunk tavers from here to Chester WV and comment about the female reporter on the football field with all the burly talk one can imagine, but it is a far stretch to over analyze the average male sense of humor and dump this action into what was very likely a stupid chidlish mistake devoid of any of the potenial mental ilness that you offered up.

Oh Mungo! Lords be praised! “…over analyze the average male sense of humor…”

Where do you live, Mungo, where this is the average male sense of humor?!

Well Raven even with this slow motion trainwreck unfolding in front of our eyes Mungo is still proud to say Hopewell/Aliquippa is where he resides! But as many have pointed out the facts so far do not support this incident rising to the level of corruption of a minor when her parents were sent the same text, and the 17 year old who received it apparently lives the lifestyle of the average 30 yr old. Further this seeming obsession you have with the urine thing is just…well weird! To say that the average male sense of humor rises to the level of serious mental dysfunction as you suggest is to say that literally millions of average guys are candidates for being labled or branded psychologically defecient! As this whole tragic soap opera plays out though and new facts are presented opinions may change, but as it stands now this may have just been a very distasteful mistaken text.

That wonderful tidbit is in the article proceeding this one and is internet gold. @Raven its BC Mungo is only speaking from years of experience.

I believe it is normal in his life and between his friends, but it is extremely unprofessional. He doesn’t seem to understand that.

Set up or not, this kind of texting “all the time” to his officers not only wastes taxpayer time, but also makes for some ugly morale.

Co-workers text each other all the time. Who’s to say it was during working hours?

Even if it was, they are cops. They always talk weather they are on or off the clock. It’s a very small dept

This is clearly retaliatory in nature. The bigger question is by whom and why? If Lozier does in fact employ 4 or more detectives that are connected to “old aliquippa” then this is likely a setup. If they have ties to a certain club presidents family or former sheriff it looks all kinds of bad. One can read numerous comments from the articles pertaining to quip recently and asses that their are organized money players that run this cess pool and keep it in their pockets for profit. Keep on digging JP

How about Ken and his guilty wife and daughter just man the hell up and admit you ambushed this innocent girl and quit trying to put blame on everyone else! This is absolutely ridiculous!

Lauren meant to text “going for a walk, I’ll pick you up after” that’s a term used for going to smoke or get high. They won’t say all that because her dad is a crooked cop and they look out for each other. Just like Watkins slept with quite a few people while married….
