Racial hatred, perhaps ?

I too wonder what is wrong with this world.

I believe the media is a large part of the problem.

As with this case, these boys were """"not """ being tried for murder-they were acquitted of that charge.

This trial was about civil rights, and to determine if they denied him the right to live in shenandoah!

i agree this gentleman illegally sneaks into this country and reside in shenandoah. i wonder how does he have a civil right to live in shenandoah when he doesn't go thru the proper channels to have that civil right. he didn't deserve to die but how does an illegal have civil rights

civil rights are what we have as human beings...we are not animals despite how we behave! A person (legal, illegal...it doesn't matter...a person) died. I would not do to an animal what these two boys did to a human...alcohol, testosterone or whatever other excuse they want to use!

Im glad that this happened now the law should be looking into shenandoah about all the illegals in the town. Take all them back if they are illegals...And Brandon Piekarsky thought he was above the law in that town hes a joke like the cops were at that time.

Why isn't this guy being charged for a hate crime...Guess he has more rights they white americans

An Allentown man admitted Tuesday to ending a tumultuous on-and-off relationship with the mother of his child last year by beating her to death with a baseball bat.

Alfredo Reyes Ortiz, 43, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder. He had been scheduled to go to trial in November and could have been convicted of first-degree murder, which would have resulted in a mandatory life sentence.

Ortiz instead faces a maximum of 40 years behind bars. He's scheduled to be sentenced next month by Lehigh County Judge Kelly L. Banach.

Ortiz, wearing a blue prison jumpsuit and shackled at the hands and feet, admitted he beat Francesca Hazel Isley, 29, to death with a wooden baseball bat, splitting it into several pieces and thrusting one piece down her throat.

By pleading guilty to third-degree murder, Ortiz is admitting he beat Isley with "conscious disregard for extreme risk" but without the specific intent to kill her, said his public defender, Earl Supplee.

"It's an appropriate resolution for everybody involved," Supplee said.
