    Once again the taxpayers will be burdened with another looser. Make him work outside to pay for the damages to the home and for his 3 hots and a cot.

    most street roamers dont have a vehicle in nepa. in the skook its just beat feet in back alleys and find abandoned buildings like the old celebrity room facility.

      We used to go in the Celebrity Room when we stayed in Frackville to work on some crappy distribution center (what a joke). People told us it was a strip club but the stage was 3×3 with some old lady sort of dancing with band aids over her nipples. The crowd was a bunch of awkward guys. Some fire company guy kept coming in and out with a different odd dude every hour. What a weird area!

    Sad, really. But let’s make sure we provide for people who aren’t Americans and foreign countries.

      I think it was left running by the owner, that’s how it was so easily stolen by someone who apparently isn’t too good at driving a vehicle, let alone hotwiring one. :-)

    Walk into a bank, demand money. Wait for police. Gets you 3 meals a day, warm place to sleep and recreation. Can’t beat it! Oh, and sex if your not worried about the guy thing.
