This is a great Times Leader article on MinSec, but if fails to mention the other halfway houses usually given the politically correct name group living facilities. They are all over the area.

I used to burn the halfways houses down, but MinSec has an effective sprinkler system.

This town is loaded with halfway houses, but they pay bribes to the right people. MinSec cannot pull that shady crap since it a private prison subcontractor. That's why these politicians have been harassing them for all these years. I don't know of ICE having illegals stay at MinSec do you? These political chumps do not cost much to pay off in this area. Some times a case of cheap beer keeps them happy.

We still will not pay bribes to the white neggirs of Hazleton. Also we do not contract with NYC or the Dominican Republic, that is local real estate people, like the ones that advertised the Altamount to us. You remember the ones that orchastrated the "Kids for Cash" scheme.

There's one near city hall that always has convicted felons living at it. At least one of them is in the police blotter every so often. They even have taken minsec people in. I see the cops there every now and then.

Halfway houses are pretty useless and a waste of Medicaid and Medicare money. They bill for psychiatric and drug counseling, yet have no licensed counselors. Just do some online research and you will be amazed at how these expensive tax funded flophouses work.

the only thing your kind is able to do is "band together" at messing up your own society then find a scapegoat to blame it on. So keep on doing what you do best: bend over, take the royal shafting in between the cheeks, complain for awhile, bend over and take it in between the cheeks again, whine some more, then realize nobody cares and life goes on for your kind. Then just give up, stay an live in your own schizophrenic fear or leave town.

That is all they do is whine. They cannot deal with the reality that immigrants and emigrants have surpassed them. They are nothing but negative trash that are where they are in life for a reason.

I used to deal off the porch of my halfway house in Reading. The staff were my best customers. I would get a beej if they were broke.

I guess Hazleton can go back to picking on the innocent immigrants once again.

I've lived at most of the halfway dives in town except minsec. I missed out on that. Bumville is more for a free spirit like myself.

WTF is a hallway house? A building with no rooms just a maze of hallways?

Some other ratholes had to pave the way for min sec. That is why they assumed that it was kosher to have a giant halfway house and minimum security work release prison on Church and Broad. These other places must pay large bribes to the cops and the media to keep themselves out of the spotlight.
