Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane on Sunday lashed out at critics of her decision to shut down an undercover investigation that had captured leading Philadelphia Democrats - including four members of the state House delegation - on tape accepting money. Kane blamed "cowardly anonymous sources" for providing "an inaccurate and sensational version of the details" of the case, which were made public in an article in The Inquirer on Sunday. The paper reported that prosecutors in the Attorney General's Office had run a sting for three years that captured at least five city Democrats on tape accepting cash or money orders, and in one case a $2,000 bracelet.

HARRISBURG - Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said Monday that she believed leading Philadelphia Democrats ensnared in an undercover sting operation committed crimes, but that the case against them was so badly mishandled by her predecessors that it could not be prosecuted. Responding to a report in Sunday's Inquirer that five public officials, including four state legislators from Philadelphia, were captured on tape accepting cash, gifts, or money orders, Kane said she had no choice but to shut down the investigation.

It was just before 6 p.m. and still daylight on June 27, 2009, when police descended on the Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties. The newly opened apartment and shopping complex was teeming with people enjoying cocktails at the courtyard restaurants. Upstairs, on the top floor of the seven-story Navona building on North Hancock Street, residents had just discovered the bodies of a man and a woman, riddled with bullets, in the hallway. Initially, police were unsure what the victims - 34-year-old Rian Thal, a party promoter well-known in the city's nightclub scene, and Timothy Gilmore, a 41-year-old long-haul trucker from Ohio - had to do with each other.

IT STARTED with flattery. Staff Inspector Jerrold Bates summoned aide Keisha Johnson into his office in the Philadelphia Police Internal Affairs Bureau. He asked her to take a seat. She was smart, professional, he said. She put people at ease and made him look good. He walked toward Johnson and stood behind her chair. "You're pretty much a reflection of me," Bates said that day in early 2008, according to Johnson. He placed his hands on the shoulders of her petite 5-foot-5 frame.

Investigators were trying to establish a connection between Detective Ron Dove and the case of Reynaldo Torres, who was 41 when he disappeared May 8, 2012, along with a family friend, Melanie Colon, 22. Colon was found shot to death behind an apartment building in Juniata Park on May 12, 2012.

PHILADELPHIA Firefighters and Paramedics Local Union 22 will soon be confronting the two-year anniversary of an event we wish had never occurred - the tragic deaths of Lt. Robert Neary and Firefighter Daniel Sweeney in the infamous April 9, 2012, Kensington warehouse fire. That warehouse had long been neglected by its out-of-state owners and had been allowed to deteriorate into an eyesore and death trap that ultimately claimed the lives of two of our brothers. The city's response - then and now - was tepid.
