The Pennsylvania Latino community is planning a Peaceful Prayer Vigil to Pray for Unity in Shenandoah. In a recent interview, Dr. Agapito Lopez, a member of the Governor's Advisory Committee on Latino Affairs and vice president of the Hazleton Latino Association said, "Everyone is concerned about this decision. Not only in the community here, but the whole Hispanic community in the United States.”

"We will pray together because in our community we ALL need to work together," Arroyo said. "We are exactly the same. We are human beings. We have families. We have goals in our lives. The Latino community does not want a confrontation, but we do want justice. It’s time to sit and talk together and see how we can work together for the future."

Wesleyan U. suspect's family: 'Turn yourself in'

Some excerpts :

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Anxious students at Wesleyan University huddled in their dorms Thursday and the city's only synagogue was shut down as authorities said a man wanted in the shooting death of a Wesleyan student may now be targeting the school and Jews.

Johanna Justin-Jinich, 21, was shot several times Wednesday by a gunman wearing a wig at her job inside Broad Street Books, a popular student bookstore. Two years ago, she complained to police the suspect, 29-year-old Stephen P. Morgan, stalked and threatened her.

Police told the university that Morgan expressed threats in his personal journals toward Wesleyan and its Jewish students, the school said.

"Investigators have been in contact with Wesleyan University and leaders of the Jewish community, urging both to be extra vigilant," Middletown Police Chief Lynn Baldoni said.

Justin-Jinich, of Timnath, Colo., came from a Jewish family, said her former stepmother.

The Pleitez Promise--A Millennial Breeze Begins To Blow in Washington

Some excerpts :

One of the first young Americans to bring the Millennial sensibility to Washington may come from California's 32nd Congressional District, where there will be a special election for the seat recently vacated by Labor Secretary-designate Hilda Solis. Democratic candidate Emanuel Pleitez is a 26-year-old who hopes to become the second member of his generation to serve in Congress. In many ways, Pleitez (pronounced PLAY-tez) represents a vivid template of the kind of leadership this new generation is poised in bring from America's neighborhoods to Washington.

Like many in his district, Pleitez is a Latino who has climbed the ladder of the American dream from its lowest rungs. His single mom, a cafeteria worker, immigrated from Mexico and struggled to raise her family on the east side of L.A. Before he reached the age of ten, Emanuel and his family had moved ten times, often finding shelter in back rooms or garages. And like millions before him, Pleitez seized the opportunities offered by education to improve his lot. He graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in El Sereno and went on to graduate from Stanford University.

Pleitez served on the staff of Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and briefly worked on the Senate Democratic Steering and Coordination Committee. Then he moved to the private sector, working as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs. This experience helped qualify him to serve on the Treasury Department Transition Team for the new Obama administration.

It's a varied and interesting background, once that equips Pleitez to be an energetic and informed advocate of progressive policies, especially regarding the economy. But what interests us most about Pleitez is his role as a harbinger of a coming generational shift, one of the first young Americans to bring the Millennial sensibility to Washington.

The Horrible Events of Shenandoah Pennsylvania and the Useless Blather of University ProfessorsOur Blogger friend :

The Indigenous Xicanohas been doing a Great Effort to understand what happened.

I wrote a public letter or comment to him to congratulate his efforts. They are useful for our need to understand.

Here is my letter to Xicano :

Excellent Research Xicano :

I think that the hard path that your life has followed knowing bad guys gives you light and understanding on these processes of street fights or mugging and coward attacks.

I agree that this attack on Luis Ramirez was a lot of Cowardice, Sadism, Brutality and Aggression.

And that the motor of all these low passions was Racism and Hatred.

These youngsters are instilled with Hate and Contempt for others by family, friends, TV and other media.

They are implanted or transfused with Racial Hatred by their Environment.

Intelligent Youngsters in Shenandoah know that all this inferiority of others is crap, excrements and defecations of fools, the way that losers and failed lives rationalize their OWN REAL INFERIORITY.

But this gang of cowards does not represent the best and brightest of Shenandoah. They will never understand their Cowardice and Brutality.

They may be elevated to heroes by many Shenandoah Idiots, and the Town may applaud their heinous actions and make rallies to congratulate their cowardice and baseness.

But Intelligent Americans and others of any race and nation will always feel repugnace by such lowness, Bastardy.

I think that the word "Bastardy" is too soft, kind and elegant for these guys.

Perhaps Repugnace, Revulsion, Aversion and Repulsion will do without using violent language.

We have to study more Psychology and Socioloty to understand all this Murderous Sadism.

What I read in the Internet about Racial Murder seems to me like a lot of Blather of Professors in Universities that want to raise their pay and go to higher echelons of Bureaucratic life in Tenure.

Perhaps, we the common people have to elaborate our own theories of these Sociopathies of Racial Crime and Racial Murder.
