OMG!! This is this man's son who was murdered with two others, he needs to say "goodbye" to him.He will never forgive himself if he doesn't at least attempt to follow the USA's rules. The USA should allow him to bury his son, they freakin' allow prisoners to attend funerals who reside here.
Did you even read the article? MURDER? Are you out of your mind or do you just have the comprehension level of a dead vole? There was a HOUSE FIRE, not a murder.

Not all states allow all prisoners to attend funerals. The ones that do almost always require a court order and the inmate is accompanied by two deputies and all of this is done at the family's expense (they must pay for the transport, the deputies and any expenses incurred by the deputies during the "trip")-- and the deputies are paid overtime for it.

This guy had no business being here illegally in the first place and now he must suffer one of the consequences of his actions. It's no one's fault but his own.

Shenandoah is not a good place for Hispanics; all of PA minus Philadelphia seems like garbage. Corrupt cops in Shenandoah tried to let some actual murderous racists off the hook because they beat a Hispanic that was dating a white lady.

It's not worth living in a place like that. This fire was probably arson-related.

Sounds like a lot of poor unskilled people without jobs or a future.

They need to take their frustration out on something else like getting jobs or learning a valuable skill. Rather than learn a new skill a lot of people in PA collect welfare and bitch about everyone but themselves. PA is full of lowlifes. Luckily they can't afford the bus fare out.

I don't usually call people racists because I'm not a thin skinned person but seriously -what an Icky area.

Well, please provide links to all the proof that lowlifes live in Shenandoah, and that that they are poor, unskilled people without jobs or a future, as well as that a lot of them collect welfare.

Without actual proof of some sort, your above post is nothing more than conjecture and thus not credible.

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, you know the rest. We have good old country boys around this area and they are the salt of the earth. This town seem like Klan central.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shenandoah,_Pen...

The median income for a household in the borough was $18,714, and the median income for a family was $26,910. Males had a median income of $24,289 versus $19,783 for females. The per capita income for the borough was $12,562. About 16.2% of families and 20.1% of the population were below the poverty line, including 32.3% of those under age 18 and 16.1% of those age 65 or over.

Translation: Welfare recipients...

Provide government sources for the area. They do keep track of welfare recipients, etc. Wikipedia is nothing, due to the very source.

Wow, perhaps you're just an idiot. Those posts are since January 2007 *and* seeing as how I type well over 100 wpm, it doesn't take me long. Sorry you're a two-fingered peck and hunt.

I've never received any governmental assistance. In fact, I never collected unemployment, no matter how long I paid into it.

So, I guess you'd be WRONG!

Even if you want to believe a source like Wikipedia, your above post proves your original post to be WRONG! And, your last sentence "Translation: Welfare recipients" to be WRONG, as well.

You said A LOT of people are doing this and that and A LOT are receiving welfare. A LOT would imply, at minimum, half the people or more. However, even your Wikipedia source claims 20.1% of families and 20.1% of the population were below the poverty line. That's not even half of half!

Obviously the whole city of Shenandoah is not receiving welfare and, in fact, not even a majority of them are receiving it. In fact, less than a quarter of the people living there would even be eligible.

Don't make statements you can't back up.

I know someone with a single digit IQ has never had the opportunity to work for him/herself and thus obviously cannot comprehend it, but working for oneself IS a job, idiot. I just don't have to punch of a clock or show up at a location at any set time. That gives me a lot of freedom. I know you're jealous. Perhaps if you weren't borderline mentally handicapped you wouldn't have these comprehension issues.
