The vast majority of Americans support:
1. the DOJ filing Hate Crime charges against Piekarsky and Donchak
2. the Ramirez family filing a civil lawsuit against them
It is heartening to know the vast majority of Americans, over 90%, believe Justice was denied in the Ramirez murder case and advocate the DOJ seeks Federal charges and the family files a civil lawsuit against Piekarsky and Donchak. Sites from CNN, MSNBC, ABC comment sections, Huffington Post, DailyKos, to numerous independent blogs to numerous forums and newsgroups to many Facebook/Myspace blogs/tweets, ALL ADVOCATE for JUSTICE for Luis Ramirez!!
Here is just a small sampling:
. Such a sad day for America.My condolences to the victims family.
. Don't hate crimes fall under Federal jurisdiction & not state? Perhaps for this very reason?
. these teenagers were drunk and under the legal drinking age. I guess it's fine for them to act "mature" and drink irresponsibly, even if they kill someone while under the influence?
. I guess Mexicans/Immigrants are the new "Black". I wish I was surprised but not after reading what state/city it happened in. Stay classy Shenandoah, PA.
. Somewhere in this process the prosecutor and more likely the judge did not properly instruct the jury of what their responsibilities were relative to how they were to apply the facts to their process of decision making.I hope that the jury and the community eventually realize what harm they have done to the justice system of their town and to the nation.
. Now, the reason I consider your comments racist, full of bigotry and completely insensitive to the case at hand, is you've done nothing but make assumptions and heap all blame possible upon the Mexican victim.
. It's pretty clear that they've goaded him, he's tried to call for help. 6 drunken football players.
. Justice has been far from served.
This is just a small number of examples. However, it is very heartening to know the vast majority of True Americans believe Justice was NOT served, the jury was biased and the young murderers did, in fact, get away with murder. They also believe the DOJ should now step in and charge them for a Federal Crime! They are NOT like the Hate sites or like the local Shenandoah comment sections at all!!
Just reading their heartfelt concerns reminds me that America, overall, by vast majority, is, in fact, a Land of Welcoming Immigrants! Land of the Free! And the Home of the Brave!
God Bless America!
