These thugs need to spend a long time in prison. There is NO time where you can kick someone in the head when they are out. It doesn't matter what happened before that, at that point it is murder. Doesn't matter if it was a fight or even self defense, you can't use deadly force on someone who is currently not a threat. So even the lies and stories these little "angels" have concocted with their uncle the local cop the night of the attack will save them, like claiming Ramirez had a gun... which the police searched for that night instead of looking for the attackers. Notice the local police never pressed any charges, it wasn't until the state police took over and the DA pressed chrages.

A message to Brandon J. Piekarsky, Colin J. Walsh and Derrick M. Donchak -

Nice job.
You have taken the life of a father and leave behind three children who will no longer feel the love and security that only a daddy can bring.

A pox on you and your family...for the rest of your miserable lives.

It is a discusting occurance filled with hatred in an
obviously ignorant community.
I hope those three hoodlums get the electric chair and
Chrystal Dillman should not only sue the town, but the
hoodlums as well.

Here's a great example of where life in prison should mean exactly that. No more birthdays or parties, no more family, no more joy. Exactly what they gave this victim's family.

Fortunately for the two teens charged with criminal homicide, they will probably not end up in PA's electric chair. The best they can hope for is involuntary manslaughter, which does not carry a death sentence.

As far as Crystal Dillman suing the town? There is no basis for such a suit against the community. You can not sue a community because it is a home to bigotry.

The best thing that you can do to support this community is to show up on Saturday, August 23rd and take part in its ethnic heritage day.

Like I said about the electric chair, this will not result in a life sentence for these teens. There is a wealth of pain going around this community. When would you like for the pain and suffering of mankind's hate to subside? When you exact the appropriate revenge? I am sorry but the world needs healing.

These lawyers make me sick,"one ethnic group fighting another" and "street fight that ended tragically." This was neither. It was three cowards/bullies who killed a defenseless person. I hope the three die in jail.

Why was he in this country in the first place? What the kids did was wrong, but does anyone care about the fact he was an ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT? There are legal methods to get citizenship and I could care less about the life of an immigrant when Americans are dying on a daily basis both at home and abroad.

Mark, unfortunately you can't always be a pacifist. There are evil people in this world and they need to be made examples of. More importantly, they need to learn their lesson. They're still young so hopefully they'll realize what they did was abhorrent.

Yes Mike I agree. There are people in this world who should be removed without delay, but we have a certain procedure dont we?

These teens will learn their lesson in prison and I am hopeful that they can make some sort of reparations in the future.

When did being an illegal immigrant merit a death sentence?

Greg:
It would be better if you left this country and go hide in the hole you crawled out of.
to all:
one of the defendants is a Bloomsburg University quarterback (Donchak) Please write to the university and demand that he not only be kicked off the team, but thrown on his ass out of school.

No man deserves death. And I dont have any idea of what happened between them, but regardless of what it was NO ONE has the right to murder. Especially just because there IMMIGRANTS. No matter who you are or where youre from we all have equal rights. And all those out there who say OH WELL he was an illegal alien, where did your family originate from I seriously doubt it was here in AMERICA, that got taken from the Indians and bought and robbed from MEXICIANS. So all of you out there that say its no big deal just imagine if your grandparents or anyone far back in your family were around to see this do you think one immigrant would look over at another immigrant and say WHO CARES. Take a real long time to think about it. Because no matter what are laws have us accustom to we should never start to think that those people don’t matter. What if in ten years 80 percent of the USA citizens had to get paid as much as the overseas workers, or just don’t work. Then what, all you will be doing is crying about. Because what some oversee workers taking your work. And for what 20.00dollars a day, yea SURE there really getting over on the citizens here. By coming and getting paid peanuts. All those immigrants do is bust there buts working at lest 60 hours a week to come from where there at, and then when they get here it’s a fresh start all over. Work for minimum wage in which to them is like a real secure income compared to what they use to be paid. Fact is fact you can call all immigrants any thing you want but just think of how much you really on them, Gas stations, restaurants, Grocery stores, Hair and nail solons, every fast food you can think of, and that don’t include those with there own businesses, and how about all the laborers that work in just about every type of manual labor you can think of. So just go ahead and think about that. What if all the hard workers got to report the lazy, unreliable, big mouth people worth nothing. You better just thank GOD we have freedom here in the US or all those lazy people with big mouths would be the ones doing the real hard work that this country relies on. OH yea keep enjoying all those super sweet fruits and very tasty vegetables that are the key to are health. That those immigrants harvest for us!

Stockston, you're full of $hit! We don't need a dissertation on the case. We should be rid our country of all ILLEGALS. This clown had a FIANCEE, two children and sucking our system. Kick 'em in the head.

Learn your history people. Immigration laws in the US are a recent phenomenon in American history. So for everyone jumping on the down-with-illegal-immigrants band wagon, please realize that your ancestors are immigrants too and did absolutely nothing to become "legal." They certainly didn't have the hoops, expenses, and waiting periods of decades to endure before they became a citizen.

@ c3daddyo: FYI - Illegal immigrants do not qualify for welfare. That's just a stereotype promoted by scared conservatives.
