Justice reviewing immigrant's beating death in Pa.

The Associated Press

POTTSVILLE, Pa. - Two Pennsylvania teens acquitted of the most serious state charges in the beating death of a Mexican immigrant could still face federal charges.

Justice Department spokesman Alejandro Miyar says the civil rights division is reviewing evidence surrounding last summer's fatal fight between high school football players in Schuylkill County and 25-year-old Luis Ramirez.

A county jury last week acquitted 17-year-old Brandon Piekarsky of third-degree murder and ethnic intimidation and 19-year-old Derrick Donchak of aggravated assault and ethnic intimidation. Both were convicted of simple assault.

The case has exposed racial tensions in the predominantly white community. Some immigrants have moved to the area in search of farm and factory work.

There is a way of Deceiving People, that is hiding the REAL IMPORTANT NEWS and filling the time with Racist Garbage and with Hate Rants against Minorities and Gays.

Fox News pratices that Deception and Swindles us every time that we turn on the TV in this station.

Injustice Served - The Murder of Luis Ramirez - CNN's Anderson Cooper is a gentleman. He is telling the story and not hiding the facts, that is what Fox News ( the Network of Racism and Intolerance ) does.

These Coward Terrorists are criminal murderers and should not be free.

CNN analyst calls for federal hate crimes investigation
By David Edwards

Brandon Piekarsky and Derrick Donchak were acquitted of various state charges resulting from the beating and murder of Luis Ramirez. CNN legal analyst Jeffery Toobin is calling for a federal hate crimes investigation. The facts and circumstances of this case certainly call for at least a federal investigation because it is possible when a group of individuals are acquitted on state charges, that federal bias charges can be brought, explained Toobin.

This video is from CNNs Anderson Cooper 360, broadcast May 4, 2009.

I have been following the story with many videos, excerpts from newspaper articles and pointing to all the sources.

Thanks for your fight for Understanding between Nations and People of Different Colors.

I got into trouble in for defending the "Obama is a Great President" Hypothesis, and my spankers hate and abhor two Great Ladies that I love and admire :

A bunch of Republicans is spanking me !! - Many against one - Do you want to join a good fight ?? is a wonderful site of Forums, Conversations and Discussions, People do not seem to be the meannest Racists or Lowest Scum.

I wrote a Leading Article, or Head Post in :

I explained how Obama may last for 8 years or perhaps 16 years like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

How Obama is going to "torture" the guys at Fox News and other Idiots

Then I woke up the Dracula of Republicans. My spankers have answered with rivers of hate against :

1) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ( I admire and Respect this Lady )

2) "The race card is the final hiding place of a liberal that can't continue a debate based on it's merits. I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, it does, but the Democrats manipulate it to further their agenda."

3) Furious Attacks against Wanda Sykes for Kidney of Mr Rush Limbaugh. ( I love and admire Wanda ).

4) "I don't have a problem with the color of Obama's skin, I have a problem with the thinness of it." -- Dennis Miller at Bill O'Reilly's comedy show.

5)"As far as you pretty much castigating the America youth as following sheep, it is what I would expect from a typical liberal."

I am a humble ant and my "Bag of Tricks" is certainly very limited. I am not the smartest follower and admirer of Mr Obama and the Democratic Party. I enjoy laughing at fools, but I consider that this fight is very uneven, many against one.

So if you want to say some painful realities to those educated by the Wisdom and Profundity, the Great Depth of Intellect of Bill O'Reilly and Dennis Miller go to the above link.

By the way. I still think that Mr Obama has gas for many years. He will be a Great President.
