Is this another case of the 2 year old being the child of the 16 year old? Not that it matters. Just makes be crazy when you see youngsters like Jamie Spears' glamorizing teen pregnancy. Then we read stories like this. No parental guidence and no moral compass!

Darn right about that, it's becoming very annoying. I guess people's opinions and not just their language are now being sensored.

From readng the report in the paper. The whole situation on the house were the people were living looks really bad. I saw a pic of the so called killer he was black, the other people killed one was i think Mexican. One was 2 years old and one girl 16 years old. A mix bread of people living in same house with underage childrean, always ends up in a tragity. Where was child youth services of Lacawwana co., I can bet a weeks pay that this was not the first report of trouble with the people in that house.The whole problem is that its a buch of bull. A lot of this crap could might have been stopped if some one was on the ball. Now the Scranton Tax payers are going to have to fork out hundreads of thousands of dollors to prosicute and all the police work involved, and THATS not even the Tarnished reputation that the Scranton area will get when this is splashed all over the news. Three murders becomes National news every time. So Scranton will get a hugh black eye over this mess.

I would like to add this comment to my last post. Besides the 3 MURDERS today, there has been a shooting in down town, and a child beaten almost to death, all with in the last couple months. The Mayor of Scranton better start getting on the ball because Scranton Pa. is NOT looking like a safe place for familys to move to anymore. For a while there we had one of the lowest crime count in the nation, and that was good. In the last couple months that low crime count, with all the roberys,murders,child possible deaths Scranton is back on the list of not good places to live.

Shooter caught in Wilkes-Barre. Black.

Judging from the names, none of the people involved can be defined as "local." Scranton is becoming the latest stop on the caravan of low-lifers traveling in from the big cities. Stroudsburg, Hazelton, Wilkes-Barre and now Scranton are being plagued by these parasites. The news from Wilkes-Barre makes it sound like Dodge City. If there is not more public awareness and early police intervention, Scranton will be the same.

This is exactly the right moment for Scranton to divest itself of cops and firemen.(Should be read as dripping with sarcasm.)

Yep, stay tuned folks. The $p!c$ have now invaded all parts of the Coal Region. I'm sure we'll be hearing about more violence in these areas as the quality of life continues to decline thanks to these imports. Thanks to our government for HUD housing! Way to go!

THATS the problem with computers and the internet any one that is a JERK and own one, and post Jerk stuff without anyone knowing who you are. So when you slither out from under your rock and type on your key board don,t foreget to slither back under there before you get stepped on.
