Actually,when you think about it,none of this should be all that shocking or surprising.It's just the typical hatemonger mindset which most of this radical WRONG-wing conservative,extremist nutjob American society has against the poor and homeless these days.Which is why bigoted,political extremist,conservative hatemonger nutjobs such as Rush Limp-brains need to be permanently banned from radio and television.

Conversely,on the other hand,if the five people in the blue car had thought this hiker to be a wealthy billionaire like Bill Gates.... then more than likely they would have given him the red carpet treatment,even bowing down to worship him rather that set him on fire.The only thing lit up might have been his cigar.

That's correct. Only a complete imbecile would take a sad incident like this one and try to politicize it. It's unconscionable really.

Politicize it? Only someone who has sold their own hometown out would try to sweep these things under the rug. It is only through truth that things will get better.

Something needs to be done to get things back under control, and quick. What kind of town has cars full of people stalking people down and setting them on fire? Violent crimes used to never happen, now they are weekly if not daily occurences. Just log on here and take a look at the headlines.

It is obvious that the current power structure doesn't care about anything but making money for themselves. At the expense of the prestige of the town. I used to be proud that I went to Gettysburg College. Now, it's a demerit when I mention the name Gettysburg.

No Centrist and Grim Sleeper, you are an imbecile. How can I politicize radical nutjob hatred of the poor and homeless when the radical nutjobs themselves have already politicized it? Don't be a hypocrite and preach to me about politicizing. I can tell you all about it. I myself was homeless at one time, and have experienced the violence and brutality of being homeless firsthand.

As for having people like Rush Limbaugh permanently banned from radio and television, forget it. That would make you like the extremist bigots themselves....who want to impose unconstitutional censorship against anybody with any other opposing political view(different than that of the affluent ruling class).

And besides, America's youth are being brainwashed by so-called "bum-bashing " on the internet, regardless of whether they listen to Rush or not. While cruising the internet, there are websites where you can see other homeless people being set on fire(as if unique to Gettysburg). There are scenes of homeless people being violently beaten by baseball bats, steel pipe, glass bottles, you name it. Why all the ignorance, bigotry and hate directed at the homeless anyway?

Even more ignorant is how this man may have been ASSUMED to be homeless. What if he was actually a self-made, self-employed millionaire who worked hard all his life before deciding to take an Appalacian Trail vacation?

If you were homeless then you were probably an addict of some sort which again has nothing to do with politics. Maybe you should go back to learning how to live without electricity because it sure sounds like watching too much political TV and radio has completely corrupted your brain.

More than likely, they were just low-life scum spoiling for an excuse. Who would already have a flammable liquid in their car readily available for use? And who would already be able to produce a lit match so quickly? They just needed a readily available victim. Never forget the possibility of criminal gang initiation ceremonies as rites of passage into their gang. Low-life thugs like MS-13 are everywhere these days.

No, ignorant nutjob HYPOCRITE Sleeper, I was never an addict, which demonstrates your own ignorance and generalized assumptions about homeless people. It is all too obvious which ignorant hypocrite is an addict of politicized radio and televion. It's all too obvious it's a waste of time even taking to ignorant people like you, because you can't tell a stubbornly ignorant " know-it-all " anything anyway. All you do is make assumptions about homeless people. So go back to watching your nutjob television addiction.

It's clearly obvious from Chris's way off-topic posts that he was homeless because of his mental illness. Get help Chris before you end up homeless again,

Psychology and psychiatry are phony quacks.It's NOT legitimate science. All they do is go by their own opinions and assumptions. All you ignorant extremist nutjobs get help, BEFORE YOU SET ANOTHER INNOCENT TRAIL HIKER OR HOMELESS PERSON ON FIRE !!!

Instead of your username being called " THE SHRINK ", perhaps it should be called " THE QUACK ". This is all too typical of how these ignorant extremist nutjobs spin the truth to make everybody else have the mental problem. Take the hatred suppression meds as needed by prescription, turn-off all the bum-bashing propaganda.

Oh.... I get it now, Grim Sleeper and all you other benighted idiots out there. Why didn't I think about it sooner? You defend the benighted mindset of the perpetrators because you're just like them !!! So, if I'm ever homeless again or just an innocent Appalacian Trail Hiker.... Are you ignorant nutjobs going to come and set me on fire, too?

LOL.... lot's of laughs. But then again, you never know about all these ignorant hate-mongers these days.

However, more than likely, it's just benighted criminal teenagers or college students, or just criminal gang activity. But never, never, never underestimate how the ignorant, benighted mindset of " bum-bashing " helps such criminal violence along. It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant some people are.

And all these ignorant, benighted, simplistic-minded extremists who know very little about being homeless or anything else must go on the " pit-bull " attack because I tell the truth like it is. Need I say more?

The ignorant, simplistic conservative nutjobs are really crawling out of the woodwork now:

There are many complex reasons why a person may be homeless:lazy, drug addict, mentally ill, mentally retarded, or even none of the above already cited. One reason does not fit all.They might not even be homeless at all, but just an innocent trail hiker.

To stereo-type and make generalized, simplistic, Mister " know-it-all " assumptions about everything and everybody demonstrates bona-fide proof of simplistic, benighted, small-minded hypocrites. Need I say more? I don't even have to prove anything, because they have done such a swell bang-up job for me.

Basically, all I'm saying is this:

The flames of the criminal gangster mindset is often already there. But all the ignorance and hatred of homeless people is certainly helping it along by fanning the fire and supplying more oxygen to it.

As for ignorant conservatives like Grim Sleeper and "The Quack", they should not embarrass themselves with their own ignorance any further. AND IT IS GETTING QUITE EMBARRASSING FOR THEM, to say the least.

So, I suppose this trail hiker was also a lazy no-account bum and a mentally ill drug addict too, just because he wanted to hike the Appalacian trail?

Man, talk about ignorant conservativee hypocrites politicizing " bum-bashing " themselves. It was already politicized from the very start when the perpetrators of this crime made a comment about him being homeless. Need I say more?
