Here we go again......Another working man shot and killed by another upstanding citizen who found his way here from New Jersey. I also saw said individual was a person of interest in other killings. Say and think what makes you folks feel good, but the fact is this is a fine example of things to come. The peace and quiet of the Pocono life style is long gone.

Apparently you don't have time to listen to the Nashville news: Nashville Local Breaking News, Headlines | TN News - WSMV Channel 4. Five people shot in just 24 hours. You still spend all of your time looking back and reflecting on the mistake/s you made in the past! You must be very unhappy with your current location that you waste all of this time on us or your jealous that some of us have not shared your experience?

Such a horrible act of violence this teenager is an animal, plain and simple. But I believe this is SCRANTON' s first murder in three years I think. Can you say the same CaptIn crunch?

My point is, and always was, is the fact that the garbage from NY & NJ is flooding the area and turning the place into nothing more than Newark in the hills. As far as the murders in Nashville, there are obvious similarities I'd love to talk about but I'd be edited for "racist comments'. And sorry Fish, I love where I am. As far as wasting time??? no, when something like this comes to my attention, it's worth posting to give a little balance to the lop sided rah-rah crap some cheerleaders feed people that are looking to move to the area.

Got me there....In the little town I moved to you may have to go back 3 times that to find a murder.

We all have not shared your experience! Your thinking is that you had a bad experience in our neck of the woods and everybody else has to have the same feelings. We all are not on your band wagon. The persona that you projected while in NEPA could have affected your experience. We will never know. You blame NY'ers for taking down the area - but they brought their money into our area and we sold them the land.

I just cannot get past wondering why this is your pastime? It goes further than just revenge - it's a preoccupation. You are not content to move on.

Looks like Trips has a bit of OCD regarding bashing the region. I wouldn't want to spend so much of my time thinking negative thoughts, it can't be healthy. I hopped on an elevator a few days ago and it went up when we all wanted to go down. A gentleman on the elevator carried on an on until we got off. I thought to myself as I ignored him how people can put themselves in such a dark aura. Why live your life in continual strife? It's not a good way to live, there are so many better things you could be doing with your time than nourishing bad karma in your life.
