    Maybe the police could be better utilized to tamp down the outright SCOURGE of lawlessness in and around our towns and boroughs. Local ordinances simply aren’t enforced anymore, properties and buildings are unkempt and overgrown, theft of all sorts, drug use and trafficking, abandoned vehicles, vandalism, curfews for minors, etc, etc, etc…not a hanging, spray painted mannequin …give us all a freakin’ break from this crap…
    …and, to boot, the black on black crime is statistically through the roof nationwide as black on white crimes are largely ignored and unreported, while a spray painted mannequin gets attention… sickening.

      C’mon..stop it.. the crime rates are fairly low in Schuylkill County. That is what commissioners are saying.

    What does it qualify for? A hate crime? Hopefully Frackville detectives asked the mannequin all the right questions this time..
    I guess, for the lack of any civil rights organizations and groups in Schuylkill County, police has to take care of the issue now. Good luck to police!

    And…lest we forget…the Jussie Smollett national news hoax, the Bubba Wallace NASCAR racing garage noose hoax, Al Sharpton, Joy Reid, Anna Navarro, Whoopi Goldberg Van Jones and all the other race baiters.
    … Remember when we shared the ideology that we didn’t see “color”, that folks were just folks…?
