    It’s most likelt fecal matter from a homeless person who used the briefcase as a toilet and then disgarded it in front of the County Office Building.

    I dont want to be a target. I dont even live any where near Pitt. Our people are being oppressed and they will fiight back. When they do Big Brother will swep them under the rug, called crazy, put in a jail and or shallow grave. Federal building gets blown up, oh he was crazy. Congressmen in AZ and innocent bystanders get killed, oh he was just crazy. state police officers get shot, oh he was crazy because WE THE GOV’t are not to blame.

    Im just a concerned citizen of the great state of PA that doesnt want to end up dead, caught in the middle, because Big Brother or antagonistic police officers are oppressing our peps. One love! I am not a target just exercising free speech.
