Gunman Opens Fire at Town Hall Meeting In Pennsylvania

Wake Up America -by Susan Duclos

Three or four dead (conflicting reports)  and two critically injured after a gunman opened fire at a town hall meeting in northeastern Pennsylvania. Reports say the gunman shot through the wall then went inside and opened fire.

[Update] A fourth person, a woman, was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital near Allentown. Police initially said she had died, but then said later that she was still in surgery. [End Update]   

According to reports the shooter had a pistol with a scope, emptied it and went to his car for another weapon. West End Open Space Commission Executive Director Bernie Kozen tackled the suspect causing his weapon to go off and shoot the gunman in the leg.

Two died at the scene and two were pronounced dead after being transported to the hospital, The Raw Story reports.

The shooter has been identified as 59 year-old Rockne Warren Newell, who had recently had his property seized after an 18-year-long dispute with the Ross Township Board of Supervisors over the condition of his property.

Since Newell’s property had been seized, he had been living in abandoned buildings and his vehicle. In June he  told the Pocono Record “They have no right to kick me off my property. They call my property an ‘eyesore.’ When I bought it, it was one of only three properties on the entire road that didn’t have what they call ‘junk.”

The news clip below reports three dead.

  1. I see…they took this guy’s property because some stinking yuppie thought it was an “eyesore”.

    My only regret here is that he wasn’t able to kill more people than he did.

      1. Sorry #1, like I told ya I was listening and trying to read many tiny articles. was ksfo, so thought SF Oops! 🙁

        1. LOL It was the first article I came across last night, but I knew immediately it was the one you were talking about (the town hall part was a dead giveaway.) 🙂

          1. :>/ :0 don’t know if those will work or not either?
            I’ll use your 1st one,
            the :-0 works for me tho heheh!
            Thanks for tryin’ 🙂

  2. The shooter was tackled going to his car to get another gun because the one he had was empty… But as he was tackled his gun went off and shot himself in the leg…. ??????

    His property… and the county took it… because it did not pass their standards….

    I guess it never entered their mind to help the guy clean his property , if he so wished…

    When you take all a person has… They have nothing to loose…

  3. ‘No sympathy for the Devil’

    Think these community ‘Napoleons’ would have spent 1/100 the energy and effort into benevolence instead of malice and organized a small community effort to help the indigent man clean up his property? NOOOOOOOO… They went with the tyrannical, ego-maniacal, bureaucratic power of Satan!

    Well. now they can all devote their after life consciousness for eternity to the landscaping and ‘junk’ removal exclusively from their grave site!

    I suspect that the replacement of these townie drones, will in the future adapt a nervous eye ‘tick’, like Inspector Clouseau’s boss, anytime an issue arises before the council regarding social engineering ‘pretty’ property issues.

    Thomas Jefferson – “When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty.”

  4. To answer a philosophical question, no doubt being asked by the friends and family mourning the loss of the members of the Ross Township council, ‘Why do bad things happen to good people?’

    Well, it’s rather simple. It’s because they just weren’t that F\/<|<|\|' GOOD!

  5. I’m hoping this is the start of a major trend. I’m actually quite disappointed it hasn’t been happening far more often.

    You steal the roof from over someone’s head, you deserve to get shot. In the Old West, you were shot for stealing a horse.

      1. Fear.

        The population’s been so dumbed down, and indoctrinated with fear of tptb that they just take it lying down.

        Not every last one, though, as evidenced by this article.

  6. Well, what do you expect when you have Homeowner’s Associations AKA Nazi Neighborhood police telling you what you can and cannot do with your own property. SHOOT’EM ALL!! May they all fry in HELL for all of eternity!
