Hate crime or not, the killing has exposed long-simmering tensions in Shenandoah, a blue-collar town of 5,000 about 80 miles northwest of Philadelphia that has a growing number of Hispanic residents drawn by jobs in factories and farm fields.

An investigation continues, and no charges have yet been filed, but police say as many as six teens were involved in the fight, which ended with Ramirez in convulsions and foaming at the mouth. He died early Monday of head injuries.

Looks like the anger is spilling over and the violence has begun . . . . .

I don't condone things like this but, I did say this all was going to happen and it is only getting steadily worse. The illegals have brought this on themselves, and those that back them.

She never said that she was ok with this at all. A number of us have been saying that this was going to get out of hand and all of you just laughed. It is now getting out of hand and this is just the first part and that is what scares me. Tell the illegals to go home so we can reign in our idiots in our own country.

What is wrong with you people? Someone gets beaten to death and it's the illegal immigrants fault?

If it is determined that this was a crime motivated by a hatred for “illegals,” my fears are in fact coming to fruition. Illegal immigration is a huge ticking time bomb; and this, and similar stories, are sad and 100% preventable.

They are perfectly okay with it and they'll give you reasons to justify it. That is why i always say their oppositions goes way being them being illegal.

Neither do I. I posted this for the same reason, to reiterate that the anger will increasingly turn to violence if the US government continues to ignore the masses.

You're kidding right? Did I say I'm ok with this? Don't put words in my mouth simply to comply with the insanity going on in your head.
