DA Zappala public servant or public enemy

Looks like the recent revelations of former Allegheny County Coroner and world-renowned forensic examiner, Dr. Cyril Wecht, may turn the tide in the bitter dispute between Allegheny County District Attorney Steven Zappala, Jr. and PA Senator Jane Orie.
According to Wecht, “Steve Zappala said to a legislator back in 2005 that ‘anybody who screws with me or my family is going to be indicted.’ Wecht even volunteered to take a polygraph exam.
If Wecht’s recollection can be proven and Zappala does use his office and all the resources that go with a district attorney’s position, for vindictive purposes this may be the worst case of terrorism ever chronicled in a non-third-world country.
One can only wonder is Zappala a district attorney or a wise guy?
