    This most likely is another drug addict stealing to support his habit! People don’t seem to realize that we are in a war between evil and good! Drugs, especially heroin, is destroying this generation and will be the downfall of the future generations and our world, if drastic steps are not taken to stop the dealers and suppliers! Our government needs to step up and fight the war on drugs that is destroying our country, before it’s too late!! Until something is done we will keep hearing of more and more break-ins, shootings and murders. Wake up America, time is running out, take action now!!!!!

      It’s impossible to tell from your comment whether you’re actually being serious or you’re being sarcastic.The War on Drugs is destroying America far worse than the use of any drug could ever destroy the country and Police Departments are using it as an excuse to militarize in the constant escalation of gang related violence they encounter. The country wastes billions of dollars per year on enforcement and incarceration that it could instead of be using on rehabilitation and treatment and we’re all less safe from both sides because of it.

    Yep, just another job Americans won’t do. To be fair, we don’t know his legal status, but I have my suspicions and agree he should sit in jail for a long time and then, if illegal, be deported.

      SCRAN-TONY did you really say “pinko liberal commies”? WOW. Ha ha. No you are absolutely right, communism is the cause of this problem (sarcasm). I haven’t heard anyone use that since I was a child and the cold war was coming to an end. What am I saying, most of Scranton is mentally stuck in the 60’s for whatever reason. I bet you also use terms like “carpetbagger” as well. Lol.
