Classy Zelda. I love how PAOnline will censor certain comments but not comments like this.

I hate what this town is becoming.

a ''lenghty investigation'' these days means they saw someone who was wearing a shirt like some criminal , then they find another minority person with similar shirt then blame that person! that is not an exaggeration . it can be documented to the online editors but people dont want to bring it publically for obvious dont trust anyone anymore lately.

Although I agree that people who are not here legally and commit crimes should be deported, where does it say that this guy is not a citizen? I also don't see where it says he was still driving the victim's car. Was there another article I don't know about?
