This is local to me.
As much as I dislike these grungy homes, every PA town has one, you have to ask,"do the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the one few?" Well,
in this case, the Many seem to actually be doing ok, so their needs are few. The victim of the tyranny, the dude, actually did need help, his needs
were great....but not so great that it couldn't be overcome....by collective will. Also, two wrongs don't make a right.
That being the case, objectively, another way of looking at is cynical. The local petty tyrants here in NE PA are more than willing to do harm and
exceed their authority thru lies and coercion. I know for a fact, I go to meetings and see it. I speak out and sleep with the Sunshine Act under my
pillow, which have used it more or less effectively in court.
This is Luzerne County, the county that spawned Cash for Kids, Chiverella, et al. In short, elected officials use their authority and the BUDGET to
build a solid bloc of support for incumbents...municipal workers, small business that don't want to rock the boat...etc. The problem is when it comes
to the Magistrates, the DJ. They are locally elected and influence elections in a similar quid pro quo manner. The end result is that we have
politicians policing politicians. It's a sham. Our fathead mayor ran for CP Judge 2 yr ago! Can you imagine the conflicts of interest?!? omg, the
Dems put the kybosh on him. The PA incumbents also have the Wiretap Laws working for them. You can't "sting" anyone w/a recording. Look at the
County Controller Griffith story, he got nailed for it, an elected official TRYING to fight corruption. Well off topic now.
I will chime in again w/info. This issue is too vost for one post. I wish it could go into a regular forum, I expected a LOT of attention. I'm
willing to put more work into it. pics of this guys house say a lot, it was just a shack. Now, if he was not really minding his own business,
terrorizing w/a gun and threatening....I can see the problem. It's really tough to say.
