    The story I heard about this was the young man that got shot was beating on the old mans daughter. Don’t know full details but that’s just what I’ve heard.

    Oh boy, look at this one. You think he lured a few kids in his day or followed them like that Dennis Barker guy did in Mt Carmel?

  • Booney

    Is this the guy that owns Boyer’s supermarket in Frackville? Anthony and TJ Bart mustbe so disgusted. RIP Howard Street.


    This is a product of that up and coming area called Schuylkill county. Watch for the cats and foxes coming out of the blighted rowhomes in these parts!

        The area is a dump. This guy looks like he might be from shenandoah. But at least I got high school football coming up, got my order of schlitz and hopefully my team wins and maybe some fire whistle action to. I love fires and kids sports.

    So………..this is “news,” but it’s also just laughable when these people commit these atrocious crimes. First of all, it’s a glaring reminder that so many people have no regard for human life, personal dignity, morals, or ethics. But, then there’s this: do these people not realize that their faces are going to be plastered all over every local news and social media in the region? LOOK AT THIS GUY’S MUG!!!! Nobody, anywhere, has any business acting surprised that this guy pulled a gun and shot someone.

    Charles Darwin? Paging, Mister Charles Darwin!!!!!!!!
