    Breaking news, some loser idiot has to keep stealing my username(s) because they are SO lame they don’t have a mind of their own. I feel sorry for you, people like you who’s lives are so BORING that they have to take on someone else’s identity.
    I feel this piece was handled very well in the face of limited information.
    My sympathies and prayers for the family and friends who lost a loved one.

    I live on the outskirts of Hazleton, and the city itself is good. It’s the people committing the crimes we need to get rid of. There are still some decent people that live there and some decent Mom/Pop shops/restaurants…….we need a ‘cleanser’.
