    Who are the ‘investigators’?
    i suppose the ‘OFFICIAL’ ‘INVESTIGATORS’ will soon give everyone the so-called ‘REAL STORY’.
    in the meantime, watch here for further updates by the toadies of the ‘official story’, as well as the useful idiots who think to give ‘support’ by posting wild, tangentical ‘theories’ as to why this man felt moved to violence against this outpost of totalitarian control, AKA ‘Pittston City Hall’.
    The ‘OFFICIAL STORY’ has already been GIVEN TO US, here on the MSM affiliate, WNEP.
    Nothing to see here…keep moving on…forget what you are thinking, and go back to FOOZBALL and SPORT.
    YOU don’t know, and you will NEVER know why, or WHAT REALLY HAPPENED.
    A man is soon to be ‘suicided’, right HERE, and you know what his name is. Do you CARE?

  • Max Deangelo... A Role Model

    Maybe he had his house burglarized by cops? Found his dog shot for doing it’s job, when really they wanted a house down the street…?

    It’s actually refreshing to hear someone flipped the tables on the cops, again.


    Now why do you suppose a man would break into a public building where there are Police Officers Present?
    Do you suppose it was an accident, or he was out of it on drugs?
    Or was there a woman involved and he wanted to confront a certain somebody?
