According to The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Celeste Scott posted a Facebook livestream “calling on white people to demand change rather than relying on black activists to take the lead.” Thomas D’Andrea is facing misdemeanor counts of simple assault and criminal mischief but he has not served one day in jail.The child’s father Dave McGovern told Pittsburgh’s Action News, “I’m still wondering why there haven’t been more than two charges filed… He kneed him in the ribs and punched him in the face. That’s where the bloody mouth came from.”McGovern’s attorney Blaine Jones, who is representing the family, also said, “This behavior is unacceptable. [The kid] didn’t deserve this, the [45]-year-old man is not the king of Greenfield, he can’t determine who comes and goes from Greenfield.”D’Andrea also is on the Greenfield Community Association, and he has been asked to step down.His wife told WPXI that he was the “real victim” but did not explain how he was victimized by a child — it’s not clear how an adult caused a child to bleed but attacking him is the “victim.”Pittsburgh Public Safety released a statement on their social media, which read in part, “Thomas D’Andrea is charged with simple assault and criminal mischief. Police are continuing to investigate. D’Andrea is a City of Pittsburgh firefighter. He has been placed on administrative leave. The office of municipal investigations is investigating.
