so now everytime something happens in that area you are going to cry racist? your a bigger part of the problem then you are the solution, only someone who loves to cry racist will now try and levy racial charges against EVERYTHING and anything that happens! Get a life loser, go join al sharpton and friends if you wana make EVERYTHING about race!
Well, first of all, I think it was racist. I don't cry " racist " for fun. Shenandoah is under fire for every breath they take. Racism is a horrible thing. I personally don't have the everyday life where something like that happens. Whether you agree or not, doesn't make me the loser. It makes the people who kill others or use violence as a tool losers.

This comes from a comment from the Pottsville Republican's 09/18/08 story on the incident:

"Justice is blind unless you are a White, Headeral sexual Male that smokes."

It would be easy to make a comment about the person who wrote that and attack him directly. If that's the kind of education that people are leaving the 9th grade with, no wonder the financial world is collapsing - how can we compete with a workforce of semi-literate people? Being a major drug conduit is probably the best financial thing to happen to Shenandoah since they discovered coal.

There's a short book of short stories about Shenandoah which should be available at the Allentown and Bethlehem libraries. Its name is "The Only Western Town in the East". It was written in 1980 by Francis Norton Gallagher. Shenandoah has been well enough known for its lawlessness for someone to have written a book about the place 28 years ago. When I first read it, the stories were charming. Now, 28 years later, I see that very little has changed.

Another thing I just learned over the weekend. In New York it is primarily mob controlled. They run the construction and lawn care businesses in New York which is controlled by the mafia. So the consumer isn't getting anything out of it except stuck with all the law enforcement, medical, education, and housing decline bills.

What makes it racists? If this guy fooling around with a 14 year old girl in the park at night drugged up was white, purple or brown I don't think it would have made one bit of difference providing they were all equally as stupid. When confronted instead of high tailing it home, he chose to fight four or five teens? Now why would someone living, first chose to live in a racists town, and then chose to fight? That is not racisms except from your perspective, because you need an excuse for making bad decisions, its stupidity. If a Mexican wants to stand out like a lightening rod he'll get hit but its not because he is Mexican its because he is a lightening rod. Watch American Gangster.

Oh yes racial indeed!! The man changed his story 4 times, The first is the best 4 SKINHEADS kidnapped me and put me in a black SUV and tortured me... hmmm who was trying to get a bit of the racial card sympathy? Seems it turns out he was lured into a house by a woman..just wondering how a 4 skinheads turn out to be a woman? The best part of all since he was part of a violent crime this lowlife now gets a Visa!! Guess we will see more illegals faking and lying about being abducted and tortured for that free ride on the USA's wallet.

So now anytime a Mexican illegal alien is a victim of any crime...it's assumed to be a "racially motivated" crime and more resources and public monies have to be spent to satisfy the Mexican Consulate, MALDEF and all the other ethno-supremacists advocating for illegal aliens in Pennsylvania and the U.S.? Give me a break.
The only people not covered by hate crime laws are White People. Seems a little racist doesn't it?
