Wow, Schuykill & Carbon the only places left where you can get away with something like this. The red neck capitol of PA. This looks like something from Mississippi back in 1954.

I agree. Witness bought for lesser charges, and the killers walk free on the streets.

I wonder what will be their next target on the next drinking binge? But no worries, they'll get away with that too.

It was known all along by most that they'd get off scott free. The jury couldn't separate the 'immigrant' from a plain and simple 'murder'.

How amazingly cruel to label murders as heroes for 'cleaning up their town' of people they don't like being there. Ah, yes...the good Christian folks, churchgoing, hard working Americans. I guess that goes out the window when it comes to 'Thou shalt not kill' if it's someone of another race.

Racist hate at it's worst.

Oh, and by the way...what about Quinn and the Kutztown murders?

Oh, that's right they were convicted because their victim was white.

I agree that illegal aliens should either go through the system to become legal, and then to become citizens if they want to be here. I am NOT for illegal aliens getting benefits in America.

But this is not about that, it's about murder.

A outcome of this is predicated on ineptness of
1. Proper investigation and locking in testimony.
2. Ineptness of District Attorney to put together a compelling case.

All of these men should have not walked for anything lesser than voluntary manslaughter.

This is an insiders game whereby the police and prosecutors of this region gift packaged a trial to the defense. This case should have never been heard in that county. It should have been moved to another county.

I can not fathom how inept the prosecutor was in the is case. This should have been a slam dunk for voluntary manslaugher and a host of other charges.

This is again another embarassment of the legal system in Pennsylvania. Between corrupt PA Supreme Court Justics who have been convicted, County Court of Common Pleas judges in Luzerne convicted, State Police convicted of a number of crimes, we now have trials that result in such outcomes due to sandbaging by local prosecutors.

The only good illegal alien is a dead illegal alien.

Deporting them does not work because they're back here - breaking the laws and stealing our jobs - within a few short weeks. These guys merely did what our criminal justice system and our government should be doing to protect us, but don't.

I completely agree with you. No wonder other states have no respect for Pennsylvania.

You bunch of idiots think it is alright for a man to assault children in the park? You think it is just fine if he molests 14 year old girls? You don't find it funny that he was in such fear he called his friends to go after the boys instead of calling the police? He took off his shirt, chain, and wallet then chased the boys down and punched the smallest one in the back of his head six times. That is alright with you morons though. By 5 o'clock they had an 11-1 vote for total aquital. One pain in the rear got them the least of charges. At least the jusy had more brains than you all!!!!!

Taking our jobs? Feel like shoveling manure in a horse barn? Picking tomatoes, washing dishes? I doubt it. They are not taking jobs that citizens are racing to take. If businesses wouldn't hire them, there would be no jobs, therefore no illegal aliens. Blame the employers for hiring these people. They are the ones who are violating the law and taking advantage of the illegal immigrants.

The last time that I checked, vigilantism was against the law. These a$$hole kids just got a pass to do the same thing again. I seriously doubt that they were defending the country against illegals or a 14 year old's virginity. They were looking for a fight and they found one.

Where did you attend school? Non-Educational High? Do you not get that people that live in Mexico are very poor and risk coming here to try to financially help their families? If employers didn't hire them, they wouldn't come here.

These kids are thugs and belong in jail.

These are the kinds of jobs we had in high school and the beginning of college. Blame the employers? Should we also blame the banks for the bank robbers? Hey if we didn't have banks we wouldn't have bank robbers

Vigilatism? The dead illegal immigrant picked the fight and chased down the teens to continue the fight.
The illegal was having relations with a 14 year old. AKA: Sexual Predator.

What do you expect from a biased ALL White Jury in Schuykill county. The foreman was right. Piekarsky and Donchak are racists and guilty of murder. They know it, that is why Piekarsky was so JUBILANT at the verdict, laughing his socks off that he got away with MURDER!

The Foreman said:
''I think it's absolutely horrible what happened to Luis Ramirez,'' Macklin said.''I was very, very close to finding them both guilty on every serious count, but due to the evidence presented, I was not sure beyond a reasonable doubt. I do believe that all four boys involved are RACISTS.''

He was talked out of his decision by the 11 jury friends of the defendants.
