Derrick Donchak and Brandon Piekarsky, two Shenandoah teens acquitted of the murder of illegal alien Luis Ramirez, were sentenced today to nine years in prison for violating his right to live where he wanted to live - despite being an illegal alien.
You did read the above right. These two were acquitted of murder, yet sentenced to nine years in prison today. Let me explain if you are not familiar with the Donchak and Piekarsky case.
Top: Brandon Piekarsky;
Bottom: Derrick Donchak
I have been on this case since the very beginning back in 2008, followed the trial daily and even spoke at a rally in Shenandoah. The whole thing has been a travesty of justice at just about every turn. You can read my coverage of the state trial for murder and "ethnic intimidation" below.
(Shenandoah Teen Trial Coverage: Day 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, My Verdict, Verdict is in!, Shenandoah Rally and Archive)
The prosecution went as far today at the sentencing of comparing the fight that occurred back in 2008 to the civil rights movement and the treatment of blacks in the south in the 1950's. They characterized this single event of being an attack on every "Hispanic" person in the United States.
Sounds real bad, right? So, what happened that was so vicious?
The reality of the entire events in the death of Luis Ramirez is that he was in the park with an underage girl late at night. These teens and their friends came upon him. They had been drinking underage. Words were thrown back and forth, with both Luis Ramirez and the boys throwing racial epithets at each other. They clashed in a fight and Ramirez was knocked down. During the incident Ramirez had time to make several phone calls. The teens started to leave at which point Ramirez charged them and attacked them. He was knocked down again.
Ramirez later died of his injuries, but at the trial the cause of death could not be attributed to the teens. The pathologist actually stated that the cause of his head trauma was from the head striking an object, not an object striking his head. The charges were that he was kicked in the head. That could not be proven due to the evidence. Both were acquitted of the murder charges and also of the "ethnic intimidation" charges, the state level version of a hate crime.
That was not enough for the racist groups that support illegal aliens in this country like the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and for Democrat politicians like Ed Rendell, who was the governor of Pennsylvania at the time. Both wanted a poster child for racism in this country and they set their sights on turning this fight into a purely racial attack by a group of racist white teens. The racist groups went as far as including Luis Ramirez in a filing with the Organization of American States (OAS), a group that is trying to claim some jurisdiction over the sovereignty of the United States, in a filing entitled "Latinos Not Protected In US", as an example of the hate against Latinos in the United States. (For more on the OAS see: The Demise of Our Unique American Identity)
Rendell filed with the federal government to hang these kids, residents of his state, out to dry on any trumped up charge they could find. The Obama Department of Justice was more than happy to pursue the charges.
Despite both being found not guilty on hate crime charges, the federal government decided in December 2009 to charge them on these same offenses again, just under a different set of laws. Let me be quite clear that while this was simply under a different named set of laws, these were the same charges and the prosecution made it quite clear that it had nothing to do with housing during the trial. They were hate crimes charges, accusing them of attacking Ramirez simply because of his ethnicity and race, a charge which they were acquitted of under the state statute. Thus the witch hunt began.

Schuylkill County Courthouse at Piekarsky and Donchak
preliminary hearing - August 2008
With that action the Department of "Justice" had violated the constitutional rights of both Piekarsky's and Donchak. As I pointed out in an earlier article
on this case, under the fifth amendment of the US Constitution it states quite clearly "[no person shall] be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb
". As the two had already faced "ethnic intimidation" charges under the state of Pennsylvania, they should not be tried once again for the same incident and the same charges after being acquitted.
The feds managed to get the two convicted of this "hate crime" in October 2010.
The charge is under the Federal Fair Housing Act. Here is straight from the Department of Justice's proud press release on the kangaroo conviction of the two - from their civil rights division. You will note that they clearly state that the charges were all race based and that is what their case was all about.
The jury found the defendants guilty of violating the criminal component of the federal Fair Housing Act, which makes it a crime to use a person’s race, national origin or ethnicity as a basis to interfere, with violence or threats of violence, with a person’s right to live where he chooses to live.
Both were acquitted of the race charges at the state level and then convicted on a second trial at the federal level. It is clear double jeopardy. To prove my point, here is what the prosecutor, Myesha Braden
, said today at their sentencing, making it quite clear this had nothing to do with housing in any way, but purely charging them with fighting Ramirez solely because he was "Hispanic".
Justice Department prosecutor Myesha Braden said in court Wednesday that while Piekarsky, now 19, and Donchak, now 21, did not intend to kill Ramirez, they decided his ethnicity made him "somehow worthy of being beaten like a dog in the streets." ... Ramirez's death victimized "every member of the Hispanic community in Shenandoah and around the country."
Braden also compared what happened to Ramirez to the violence committed against southern blacks in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, drawing groans and grimaces from the defendants' family members and supporters.
U.S. District Judge Richard Caputo in the case reiterated this stance in his handing down of the sentencing.
"The jury found that Mr. Ramirez died as a result of his ethnicity or race. This is serious business in America," said Caputo
The judge did not go on to mention that they had already been acquitted of the murder charges and of these race charges at the state level years earlier.
The racists in this country who support illegal aliens celebrated the sentencing. One of them, Angel Jirau, who sat on Governor Rendell's Commission on Latino Affairs rejoiced and then went on to state that the two murdered Ramirez, despite them being acquitted of the charges of murder. Being not guilty simply doesn't fit the poster child view they are trying to portray of them as vicious racist killers and not misguided teens who got in a fight.
"I hope they are able to come out of this ... and teach other people no one has the right to take anyone's life because they look differently, they talk differently," said Jirau, who attended the sentencing hearing.
Attorneys for the two will appeal, but as long as there are those in charge who see any fight or other crime that involves whites and someone of another race as obviously a hate crime, we will see no justice in this country. Sometimes a fight is just a fight. In this case it has been the chance for racists in this country to pile on and try to turn a bunch of white teens who were wrongly underage drinking and made bad decisions into the second coming of the next Klan.
The whole thing has been damned ridiculous and I'm sure these race based groups are rejoicing they have succeeded in getting the government to railroad these teens into a prison they don't belong in. Of course most of America could care less and will allow this to continue unabated. I refuse to and will stand up and say something. I hope you will join me in not allowing things like this to occur without you voicing your outrage.
Spread the word of this injustice far and wide and ignore their attempts to shut you down by calling you a racist. This is not a battle about truth for them, it is a racial battle alone. So call them out on it.

this is sickening and angering! Just when you think the federal government is possibly beginning to understand the plight of Native born American citizens suffering at the hands of illegal foreigners, they lash us with something like this. This is terrible news, and it's time to bash the feds even harder.
Thanks for following this digger. Why don't you post this on SOS forum too

Please do something about this situation and grievous miscarriage of Justis on the two teenagers. This is not right in so many ways. The DOJ had no right sticking their nose in this case because the teens were found innocent by a state court. they will not prosecute a voting and racial violation by a black man toward a white man but will jump right in when it is a white American verses an illegal who had no right to even be in this country. The operative word is ILLEGAL.He has no rights under the constitution and surly had no rights under the fair housing because it was established for Americans only not someone who has broken a federal trespassing law entering this country in the first place without permission from the federal immigration office. I think everyone involved in this case of double jeopardy should be arrested, disbarred, never allowed to practice law in this country and sentenced to life without parole.

Unfortunately, the DOJ's agenda is in line with the Democrat traitors to embrace illegal aliens as future voters. That's why those of us who try to stand up for the law are demonized as racists and sometimes prosecuted for defending ourselves against illegal aliens. I don't know exactly what happened here but it's clear the teens had no intent to commit murder. The DOJ doesn't care because it has a racist agenda against whites. Obama and Holder are both closet racists conducting a hateful campaign against whites.

"Hispanic" is not a race it is a culture. Hispanics are considered white. 70% have some Indian genetic markers.

"the cause of death could not be attributed to the teens". YEAH, RIGHT........ THE TEENS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH RAMIRIZ'S DEATH -- IT WAS THE PAVEMENT. I SAY WE SENTENCE THE PAVEMENT TO HARD LABOR AND LET A BUNCH OF DRUNKEN, RACIST TEENS OFF THE HOOK.
LISTEN UP "PATRIOTS"; WE HAVE LAWS IN AMERICA. IF YOU KILL SOMEONE, EVEN IF THEY ARE HERE ILLEGALLY, YOU GO TO JAIL, EVEN IF YOU ARE "NATIVE". SORRY, BUT THAT'S THE LAW. THESE TEENS GAVE ANTI-IMMIGRATION FORCES IN THIS COUNTRY A BLACK EYE. THEY DESERVE LIFE WITH HARD LABOR.

Yeah, and let illegal immigrant statutory rapists run around and feast upon 15-16 year old school girls and bring his Mexican gang affiliates to the park to rape the girls as they spray paint their gang signs on the park benches. Yes, lets all just turn our back on real evidence and let circumstantial evidence hold up true justice, give me a break. The man deserved to die, I'm sorry. if those two boys were Mexican and the man was white, and this was Mexico, there would be no trial no jury, no public outrage, no advocate groups defending the rights of white people, nobody, including Americans would give a fuck if a white man was killed by Mexicans in Mexico, they say "Well, he shouldn't have been there" oh, it's okay to tell people "He shouldn't have been there" if you are referring to an American killed on foreign soil, but you freak out when people say that about foreigners killed on American soul, hypocrites! America for Americans! stop letting immigrants run things!

PERHAPS YOU'VE NOT NOTICED, BUT THIS ISN'T MEXICO; IT'S AMERICA. THANKFULLY MOST AMERICANS DON'T ACCEPT THE BRAIN-DEAD ARGUMENT THAT WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO RANDOMLY KILL PEOPLE JUST BECAUSE THEY DON'T BELONG HERE.
ARREST --- YES. DEPORTATION --- YES. JAIL TIME FOR OFFENDERS -- YES. MURDER? -- THAT'S NUTS.
Posted by: think again on March 3, 2011 11:21 PM
yeah, no shit, think again, but like they said, there was no proof that they actually killed him, and according to the evidence he attacked them last, if, and this is a big if, they did kill him, they really didn't mean to kill him, probably just took self defense tactics a bit too far, but this big race war that this has ignited, is bullshit, and it's all becuase everybody is ragging on the white guys, saying this was a racially charged crime when there is no clear proof, if the Mexican would have killed the two boys, no one would say it was a racist hate crime, and he'd probably go to jail, get out, get deported and come back and do some other crime and the cycle goes on and on.
Posted by: Andrew Moore on March 4, 2011 01:27 AM
I never said we have a right to kill randomly, but why does everybody else get away with shit?
Posted by: Andrew Moore on March 4, 2011 01:31 AM
You have such a high standard for evidence against the white boys -- even refusing to accept the obvious, that they killed this man. Yet, when it comes to the Mexican dude, you assume he's guilty of statutory rape, and every other crime possible, without any real evidence. It's an obvious double standard fueled by an intense hatred of non-whites. When you post this kind of hate, you threaten the credibility of the rest of use who oppose immigration. We get pasted with the "racist" charge and folks stop listening.
The darkness in your heart is blinding to the obvious; these teens in Shenandoah did our movement tremendous harm.
Posted by: think again on March 4, 2011 08:14 AM
see, there you go again, I'm racist becuase I read that there was no conclusive evidence that said they actually caused his death. Hey, guess what, illegals commit multiple crimes all the time and slip through the fence again and again, and I didn't say whites should have more rights over everybody, if I seem racist, its probably becuase I'm tired of every single person backing up the minorities like they are all innocent, then want us to believe that all whites are guilty. Look, I don't want to argue with you, lets just disagree here. You can call me racist, it doesn't really bother me, if I'm racist, so be it, everybody has there flaws, I can hate a white man just as much as I can hate any one else, and vise versa. I'm not calling the boys innocent, I just fail to see where the man who died, where his innocence resides, I don't think he was innocent, the testimony proves he provoked the final incident, I didn't mean to come off as calling the boys innocent, but I just am sick and tired of these race activist groups that shit on American people, and act like they have a right to promote their own race and then damn the white man, if they don't like us, they can take a hike, all those fist-pumping Nazis. They act like we are so evil, that we go around beat the Mexicans to the pavement and rape their mothers and eat their children, if we are so evil, they can pack it in and go back to Mexico.

Bottom line.. this guy wasn't even supposed to be in this country.. if he had of stayed his ass home in Mexico, he would be alive today. They come here making a bunch of trouble and try to beat on American citizens as much as they can.. my cousin was shot and nearly died by illegal aliens claiming they are some kind of street gang affiliates and you tell me people like this deserve to be praised and worshiped??? not to mention a friend of mine was raped by illegal immigrants as well and this is not a problem to people??!!?? For the people who supports illegal immigrants coming over here and trashing this country and its citizens can say what ever the hell they want apparently no one can take you seriously about anything you say... I say this was a crime yes but a hate crime most likely not.. if the 2 guys walked away from the fight and the illegal immigrant guy tried to attacked them with their backs turned then maybe he got what he deserved.. what were the 2 guys supposed to do.. just stand there and let him beat on them or even kill them first??? These Mexicans shouldn't even be here is mass semi truck loads anyway without legalized papers and affidavits... so if this was a hate crime on the white guys part.. then the Mexicans who shot my American cousin and the Mexicans who raped my American female friend committed a hate crime as well. Anyone doing anything to hurt another person no matter the race or gender can be considered a hate crime as well.

My point is just because this happened to be 2 white guys and one Illegal Mexican guy.. they want to throw a race charge at these boys and that shit just ain't right. None of these boys should have not even been fighting in the first place. These government officials are just trying to blow this case up to make them feel more justified and to get people to believe that America isn't a racist country and that it will not be tolerated here. A battle against whites and Mexicans have been going on for a long time.. hell i have been in schools where race battles have broken out against Mexicans and blacks.. the only thing that has changed is whites are now speaking out and are beginning to want to not tolerate Mexicans coming over here is mass locus swarms. White are now feeling like the minorities and the ones that are discriminated on. Yes white have done their dirt in the past like all the other races of the world but whites do not deserve to be looked down at and hated.. people sit here and preach tolerance but are they preaching tolerance for everyone or is it just for foreigners?..or Mexicans.. Mexicans come here and want to be pitied, and felt sorry for and most americans are dumb enough to do it. These Mexicans are predators and they prey on people who they feel that they can most use and abuse. they come here playing the race card or the pity card..they are one big pity party and this is what they do to get what they want from people. Play the sorry helpless.. oh I'm so poor feed me, shelter me role with the American government when if all reality they need to be playing that shit with their own government in their own countries.. America and Americans don't owe them a damned thing.. Mexico owes them not us.. they got a country and a place to call home just like we do and if their country doesn't want to take care of them well tough titty, why are we suppose to?? that's not our responsibility as a nation or people. Shit.. Mexicans have ruined their OWN country.. what makes people believe we want them here to ruin ours???!!???
Posted by: ChristabellaG on March 6, 2011 12:04 AM
It's not about being racist.. its about justice and calling people out on their shit, saying enough is enough and our country we must keep running and sufficiently, its about our OWN people and the tolls that illegals put on to us as a nation.. health wise and economic wise.
Posted by: ChristabellaG on March 6, 2011 12:22 AM
Oh and let me mention here, the Mexicans who shot my cousin is still in this country roaming free.. most likely still shooting other people that belong here.. now if it had of been the other way around.. my cousin shooting them.. he would be in a case here like these 2 boys are and my cousin would have been placed up under the jail house or even prison. Justice would have been served.. for the Mexican illegals. That shit just ain't right. For nationality traitor Americans.. maybe we need to deport you all too.. all you doing is helping illegals come here to destroy your OWN country and your OWN people. We should send you to Mexico and show you how far you will get there.. you wouldn't last 2 hours with their government to try and live and become residents there. I would bet my bottom dollar on it.

"Hispanics considered as white" Have you lost your freaking mind?? that's a joke right.. Whites come from EUROPE not LATIN AMERICAN COUNTRIES. Azygos Your a dolt and a wanna be. What you said.. i have never heard of that shit and it doesn't make sense. Hispanics are now trying to justify why they can be here now by calling themselves "white" people now, hahaha OMG WTF? what are you "NUTS" Hispanics maybe part Indian but white LMFAO that's just taking it a tad too far. Trying to lump themselves in white people that are CAUCASIAN. Your people try to play any card that keeps yourselves in the game. Se how Hispanics work. Always trying to get over on somebody.They spare no expense.
Posted by: ChristabellaG on March 7, 2011 02:29 AM
You've convinced me, ChristabellaG, this has nothing to do with race.
...Good God, if you could only hear yourself. "Your people...", "they try and lump themselves in with Whites", "These Mexicans are predators".
You're in a dark place, man.

Latina race group pump their fists outside the
Schuylkill County Courthouse at Piekarsky and Donchak
preliminary hearing - August 2008
Now if this had of been a "WHITE" race group.. they would have been called KKK or Skinheads now wouldn't they? Everyone thinks it's ok for Latina race groups do go on marches and speak out about people that don't even belong here including themselves and take up for each other but White people can't? They would be labeled all kind of white supremacist groups. It's a fucking shame that Americans can't even stand up for one another in their OWN land none the less but it's ok for these people to come here and pump their fist and call themselves a Latina Race Group. That shit just ain't right nor is it fair... People kiss these peoples asses and for what?? Respect??? they don't respect you.. they don't even respect themselves of their own country what makes people think these people here give a fuck about Americans.

Why are there so many wimps in America? The toxicity of America's stupidity is at an all time high, idiots, all of these pussies that cry equality, but they don't mind stepping on the whites just as long as the minorities get their bread and butter, equality my ass, but there's plenty of inferiority and superiority though, its okay if whites get dumped on, but don't let the shit hit the "brown" people, like fuck, can't a white man get a break? "whitey" has given up so much, what else do you expect from them? everything? yep, just a bunch of gimme gimmes trying to get what they want and not earning it, my god, why is everything resting on the white man's shoulders? can't minorities take responsibility for once in America?

They are political prisoners, pure and simple. Hopefully after the next election we can get their convictions overturned. How about starting a petition NOW?
Posted by: Rene on April 5, 2011 11:15 AM
I agree with Rene, that these two young men are political prisoners, but so were the two Hispanic border patrol agents that were imprisoned in Texas some years ago, that President Bush refused to pardon. They were railroaded as well.
Posted by: Boetica on April 20, 2011 02:34 AM
I'll have to agree with 80% of what Christian had posted. The American people needs to stop feeling sorry for illegal immigrants & stop allowing them to have a voice above the citizens of the American people. The moment they crossed that border they had broke the law & they know that. Abiding by the law & doing what's right for this country & its people should never be considered racist!! You crossed that border, you broke our law, you took jobs from the American people, you come here & commit acts of violence towards our people & want us to sympathies for you?? you have no rights in this country over its citizens. Know your place in America especially if your a criminal because you did not earn our respect.
