    I wish they’d stop saying these people are “from scranton”!!! 9x out of 10 they came from NY/NJ! we need to clean up the mess that has become scranton! side note: people that haven’t lived in the city should NOT be eligible for food stamps/section 8 unless theyve lived there for at least 5 years! these low lifes from ny are coming here b/c our system makes it easier for them to get benifits!!! then they bring their no-good, non-working friends and family to sell drugs!! #NeedsToStop!!!!

    I thought the men entering the shelter were searched? And please don’t let me hear about reasonable rights to privacy. I’m sure the guy who was stabbed expected a reasonable right to safety when trying to find a place to sleep for the night.
