I have never seen such a horrific crime before, even in big cities.
Gettysburg is sickening and depraved. I hate the worthless town.
It's funny how many losers are in Gettysburg. Child Rapists too. Gettysburg is worth a pile of manure, the dogs that were raised in Gettysburg aren't good for anything but shoveling it.

Cut and paste that, you dumb farmhands.

Are your sure it was a gang? Are you sure the individuals haven't been apprehended?

I haven't seen any reports of similar crimes in the area since this event. Sounds pretty safe to me

Actually, Pink Eye PM'd me to tell me no crime was actually committed. The truth is this poor man was struggling with addiction and mental illness and set himself on fire. Pink Eye is very well connected and "in the know" so I believe her

Yes I am and thank you. Its unfortunate but he is a very sick individual and is seeking mental health at this very moment.
Unfortunatly he was married to a woman whom is a life long resident of Gettysburg and she, "drove him to the edge". A sad situation with their children involved. Her son had a child out of wedlock and isn't willing to support this new life. Their tween daughter has been collecting old soda cans for a few dollars a week extra. As a result this poor man whom set himself on fire was made to work three jobs. One can only work so many hours before a mental breakdown,which was when his addiction problem came into play.
Everyone within the community is ralling behind this poor man and have been making donations at the local Giant Food Store.
If you'd like to do your part, no matter how small, it will be greatly welcomed by his family. Living off of food stamps can only go on for so long before the benefits run out.
With the number of local residents living off the system within the Gettysburg area, local officals are getting involved to see if they could help with the situation.

I wonder when that fat cashier will come oozing in to comment. Make sure she butters her hips or she won't get into her trailer to use her free flip-phone to peck away at the Internet.

Unfortunatly it'll only be a matter of time. The Giant can only work her so many hours before she'd lose her benefits.

Have the gang members who stalked down this poor man and set him on fire been caught yet?

Things are really awful in Gettysburg. There's a lot of crime. Most of it is violent or of a sexual nature involving Child Rape.

The Gettysburg gang members who stalked down this man and set him on fire have not been caught yet. It's sickens me to think these animals are still prowling the streets of a Gettysbug, I guess you dumb hillbillies don't know any better so you allow it.

With the coming of the warmer weather also brings the few tourists back to the area.
Hopefully, these people will be safe from gangs and SOME of the dirty, nasty locals

The Street Gangs should have been dealt with years ago. Gettysburg is dying, it's only a matter of time before it is dead and bloated. I'm glad, this place and every stupid hick in it should be put down.

It's sickening how the gangs have sunk their teeth into this god-forsaken cesspool.

Gettysburg is dead.
