Its all political! IF that If this;
Everyone was reporting all the non legals but no one did anything. if they would have deported him he would still be alive.
If these kids go to court with this; typical schuylkill county justice will raise its head again. The kids with money and atty fanelli will plea bargain and get nothing. The others will fall victim to the system.
If any restitution is given the county will steal it.
If they find out who bought the beer and who sold the beer to the kids the person and store should be charged with this murder too as accessories.
wont happen though!
This has all been done before many times with many different cases; the first time, honor students, football players,......... excuses!
the big payed atty will win minimum sentence and the other kids will get hung.

too bad you're not an illegal alien, we all know that you're an alien with your tinfoil hat ideas.
We could deport you to another planet. what difference does it make where he came from? no difference. someone was killed and someone will pay for it. i got news for you buddy, in the juvenile system, the judge makes the decision, no matter who the lawyer is. the lawyer can state his beliefs, but the judge says what happens. So go proclaim your illegal status so we can deport you. you don't deserve the right to breathe American air.

Ok crappy clayton go get the toilet paper and wipe yourself cop. Dont get your panties up in a bunch! tell your skank girlfriend to come over to your highrise apartment and give her some more of your std's.
You and all your alias' are the ONLY alien's on this forum. Why dont your skank ever get on here?
Oh I forgot your always down at city hall in the shower with all your queer buddies. Better not let your skank in on that one...SHHHHHHH.
Dont play the dumb blonde moron; everyone knows that money talks especially in schuylkill county.
Fanelli only handles those high profile cases and he charges everything except your young.
Everyone knows that behind those closed doors in the courtroom and in the bars drinking thier gyn they make the fate of everyone in that courtroom.
Yes; I guess the judge does make the final decision after he gets his money.

I'm hispanic, female and illegal, but that doesn't make you God to throw me out of a country you think is legal, look at all the illegalities this country has and you focus yourself on a human being trying to survive, I'm sure your life must have more important issues than to worry about illegals. And---what do you know? I have the same right as you to speak out against what I don't believe is correct.

You know the old saying that was spoken many years ago? We will take the poor, the defeated, the homeless, ect ect.
this country double talks just like you crappy scrappie!
There were many people who came to this country;
many of our fathers or grandfathers (or mothers)
they were forced to lose thier heritage and speak english. WHY? "because the government wanted it that way"
Hispanics are NO different than any other people;
They are humans.
Many; and I admit I am one; get very angry because of the government and thier double talking, Why did our forfathers have to speak english and now a days every where you turn this society is making spanish the national language.
If you go to a foriegn country, YOU better speak thier language, and thats acceptable, but come here and the government tries to change our national language.
regardless;
This thread is for the death of a human being.
NOT a brown man, not a red man, or alien or anything else.
A man was beaten to death by a large group of drunk kids.
True- the ones with money will get a high paid attorney and get off easy.
true the courts will nail the others to a cross.
Thats the way its always been here in this county.
In this entire nation.
What does it teach the children?
fear the courts, fear other races, if your family is rich you can do what you want,

Ask one question.....

What would Jesus say or do?

I think he would hold 'EVERYONE' accountable for thier actions.
not 4 kids but the entire group
the man who bought the beer
the store who sold it to them
the shenendoa police for inciting a race riot;
the government for not doing its job;

I was a victim of a attempted homicide by 4 people with a bat. My training saved me, the hospital saved me GOD saved me.
In the end I was awarded $390,000 restitution
The courts collected it and never gave me a dime.
The county put it in a bank account and it collects interest (for them).
Try and get a lawyer to get it and you are told it will cost you more than that to get it.

There is a human dead
The people who did it MUST be held accountable regardless of age, sex, wealth, or political friendships.

Well, I think this type of crime in our community and the majority of the community response (in favor of the white kids) qualifies us to be backward redneck town. I don't think you will be able to find a fair jury here in this district. Truth be known, if the kids don't get convicted, the Federal Government will step in. The U.S. Attorney General's Office will charge with murder along with a hate crime, that's probably the only way them kids will be convicted.

Well maybe they should pick a jury of all legal hispanics. Will that be good?
I think that was right on the head! You are right there will not be a fair hearing/trial here.
If there is going to be justice the U.S. Attorney should have taken over the case already and moved it out of the area.
No lawyers from here, NO judges, NO cops, NO bias.

There already has been threats of retaliation by the hispanic community, There was an article in the local paper that the white kids were not allowed back at school ( they will be home schooled at tax payers expense)
what will that do? NOTHING!
If the hispanics dont see any of them at school they will go after some other poor white kid and start with them.
This is a very serious issue!
With that said; will the federal authorities be storming the place "NOW" and rounding up all the non legals so they cant start.
Did it take a murder to do that?
every one knows the issues between the mayor and the police up there in shenendoah, and the police will defy him at no end. Is it any wonder why this happened? The mayor tried to get rid of the bad cops, but the bad cops have the union and relatives on the board.
If they were worth anything they should have arrested someone with in minutes of the beating.

Thank you Colonel for your sincere words. This is exactly the way I see the US government working, we defend a country that seems to be taking us for whatever we have and what we've worked for or what is rightfully ours, but then they claim we cannot claim. I'm sorry about your situation and yet everyday that I hear stories like yours, it infuriates me to think that this is supposed a great nation. With a government like ours, and all the racist issues that exist, is it really?? And true also, is that these kids must be held accountable for their actions, I pray that justice be done here and now for Luis .--A proud Hispanic hoping for justice in every injustice done to all people.

First of all you are defending NOTHING, because if you are truly illegal you cannot enlist in the military. Secondly, NOTHING is RIGHTFULLY yours, you are entitled to none of it, not because I'm being cruel because the LAW of THIS country says so...you are afforded no rights. And Central and South American countries aren't racist?!?! PLEASE...you've got to be kidding me with this. I do not justify these horrible actions against you or any other human being but the fact that you have the audacity to sit there and take what our government provides for you, what your government can't, is just plain mind-boggling.

So murdering a human being is ecceptable to you?
What are you the executioner?
Look in the mirror sandbag, do you see GOD?
All people are equal: its the government games that keep this racial crap alive and well and people like you should not hold any title except whinner.
Put yourself back about 200 years; go look in the library for some books (try the kids section it may be easier for you to read) and then study the history written down. "ALL people are welcome, We will take your hungry, your poor, the desolate, any one and give them shelter ........"
Sound familiar?
Its double talk!
Otherwise there would be NO illegal aliens.
Granted, there has to be a limit on it or there will be mass starvation and other problems (like china). The government tried that by saying "so many can come in and get citizenship"
Again the government lied.
There must be law, and there must be order, but if the government is not going to enforce the laws (equally) then there is caos.
Again, thats what the government wants; so they can fill the courts and thier pockets.
Its a game that they can no longer control!

Are you talking to me?!?! Did you not see how I stated I DO NOT JUSTIFY any abuse of ANYONE regardless of their legal status...but at that point they should not EXPECT rights either, because they chose to come here ILLEGALY. Do you understand now?
