During a news conference Wednesday, D.A. Stephen Zappala shared his strong concerns and opinions about how the East Pittsburgh Police Department operates and their lack of policies.

"In response to major crimes investigation, when we first came to the scene in East Pittsburgh, we said, 'Well, how do you handle these situations? What's your policy?' They said: 'We don't have policies.' That's a very dangerous situation," Zappala said.

"Disgusted, absolutely disgusted," said Shay Thompson, a resident. "Everybody else has policies and procedures in place, why don't they?"
