Description

Reporters from The Morning Call look at Pennsylvania state constables who are not fully trained though they are allowed to carry fire arms. As this report reveals, there is no one to oversee the working of the constables either. In a particular case two constables who were serving a parking ticket in a home, shot at three dogs, while there were toddlers around. This incident triggered this investigation.
