Nice job hellertown police: You stopped these Hispanic gangbangers before they could do their dirty deeds. These Hispanics always carry guns and are quick to use them. Look what Serrano did in Bethlehem. Talk about the gang that couldn't shoot straight. Went to the wrong house and shot a perfectly innocent 15 yr.old. This should teach them we don't want their kind in Hellertown. If we don't start helping the Police by calling when we see suspicious activity we will become just like Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton. Loaded gun stolen From State Police Barracks in Belfast and duct tape to gag the people so they couldnt call the Police. Duct Tape a sign at the entrance to Hellertown:( No Hispanic Gangbangers Wanted).
I'm going to duck tape a sign by the Bethlehem/Hellertown border saying "no racists wanted, stay in Hellertown!"

Hey jib, your making a good choice. These gangbangers should all be pulled over. Racial profiling does work in Hellertown. It's nice and quiet here. The only reason PR's come here is to steal cars or any thing that they can get. Duct tape and a stolen gun, from a State Police Barracks in Belfast. Keep bypassing Hellertown and you'llhave no problem. If we see you acting suspiciously we will call the Police. We don't care what race you are but Hispanics stand out like a new gang in town.

Why in the world anyone would be against profiling is beyond me. It works!! If you aren't doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about except a slight inconvenience.

To Lv Jibaro, Tell your other friends to do the same thing you do. Bypass Hellertown.WE've had enough cars stolen and taken to chop shops in Allentown. Then they burn them and push the cars out in the street. How dumb can you be. Allentown knows where most of the chop shops are in A-town and will get caught. We need better camera's in Hellertown. At night everything looks dark inside the cars anyway.

We already stay out of South Bethlehem as much as we can. As soon as Gaming gets here you won't be in Bethlehem too much longer. Go to Hazleton, they take anybody there and you can fly any flag you want to. We've seen what happens when Hispanics come to town. Take a good look at South Bethlehem. First Friday's ,my butt. I,d never park my car to walk on third st. It wouldn't be there when I leave.

The only reason I would go to Hellertown is to eat at that Mexican place, not to steal cars you idiot. They better have a good excuse for pulling me over.

I'm not totally against it, obviously it is needed to an extent. But I would not call it a minor inconvenience. Have ever been profiled? I doubt it by reading your comments.

Unreal: These jerks were doing something wrong.If you come here and be nice we don't care what race you are,but by reading the paper it's not too hard to figure out what they were. (Get real). Racial profiling does work. I don't know if Hellertown Police practice it or not, but good job Hellertown Police.

My friends don't stel cars or anything else for that matter. Tell your friends that the white hood look is getting kind of old. I say you need a more streamlined look, like a beanie hat with rainbow colors on it, you know like the gays.

Allentown P.D.take note.Ooops.They probably know that loud-mouths like Julio Gurdy will scream racism if the suspects are a certain ethnic group.
We dare not even suggest that the persons who shall not be named could possibly be guilty-even when caught with a stolen weapon,duct tape,prior convictions,are known drug users,et al.

Torres, DeJesus, Sierra, and Cicero. Does that sound like Asian, Black or White. It isnt German. (You ain't much if you ain't Dutch).

Yeah, it works. Except when you're innocent and happen to scratch your nose and the cop shoots you for moving. Yeah, it works. NOT! Guess Jersey didn't have enough law suits after beating up innocent people pulled over by profiling.

Yes, they do practice profiling, happened to me twice when I was in my late teens. Once my car was searched because they "smelled pot"...I was just dropping off one of my best friends who lived in Hellertown. After the second time, I refused to pick him up. By the way, he was white and we were in college together...imagine that...a "Hispanic gang banger" in college...LOL...wow, must be hard for your pea brain t comprehend.
