Rockne Newell Information 8/6/2013

Some information is coming out about the Ross Township Pennsylvania shooter, Rockne Newell.

From his Facebook.

More here.

From a failed charity bid, perhaps why he instigated the shooting.

More here.

From an article he linked:

Newell, who's on a property/school tax payment plan with the mortgage paid up, said he lives on Social Security disability payments from a crash injury. He said the township has been harassing him with claims that he has never obtained the proper permits and that he has sewage and "junk" clustered about the property.
Township officials referred all Pocono Record inquiries to their attorney, John Dunn, for this article, but a 2002 article quotes then-township supervisor Butch Kresge as saying Newell shouldn't be allowed to have "junk" on his property since no one else does.
"That's funny because, when I moved here, this property was one of only three on the entire road that didn't have what they call 'junk,'" Newell said, though his property now has the largest amount of visibly cluttered items on Flyte Road.
"I'm a collector from a family of collectors," he said. "I use most of what I collect, like part of a playground slide to pour concrete for cinder blocks and wood to fence my yard from people driving by and throwing beer bottles. This saves me hundreds of dollars. I scrap and sell what I can't use."


  1. I feel sorry for Newell because Government has pushed him to this extent for his survival. Government today, especially the Tax collectors for real estate are often very prejudiced including racist in their assessments and welding their power of office. So that the less money you have the more they will beat upon you without mercy.

    I don't know the details in this case but because of Governments unfair Tax collection actions on people's homes all my sympathy goes to Newell.

    1. I feel sorry for the people he murdered. If he's such a tough, free-thinking fella he should have been able to figure out how to live in civilized society. This cold-blooded killer deserves no sympathy. Get real.

  2. I am being REAL!

    You are obviously one of those persons who have not been "railroaded" out of your possessions by Unfair and often prejudicial unethical actions of the Government; therefore, you can continue to view things from "cloud nine". I agree some innocent persons may have been hurt and/or killed but that's the collateral damage the Government creates with its possible Unfair actions against the survival of one innocent homeowner (Newell).

    Remember, that at the start of this Nation was a bloody Tax revolt and there was plenty of collateral damage then! Pennsylvania is presently instituting Unfair Taxations of people homes, like In Philadelphia with the prejudicial and unethical AVI Taxation system, that also seeks to force out the "lesser class". Newell only did what a lot of Philadelphians presently may feel like doing.
