    Meanoldwoman, apparently you don’t know Braka! This is from his charge that he got from a few years back! If you know him so well then you would know he has to turn himself in on certain days of the year and this is one of his days! So NO he didn’t pick up another charge!! Your screen name fits you pretty well!!

    sure wish you didn’t hide behind the name concerned it’s funny you say a murderer is going back to his violent tendencies and he is doing good a changed man I think you’re just pretty biased because I’ve seen you Chime in on people from the past hot sheets

      Theres my full name “very concerned”, you apparently don’t know Braka. You talk like every so called murderer is the same, thats far from the case here. If you took the time to get the facts you wouldn’t jump to judging. Not saying the man deserved the full outcome, but i too would have swung at someone taunting me. What he did was an accident and he’s still taking his consequence, let it rest. But you CANNOT compare Braka to a typical murderer!!

        Sorry my making to sense comment was suppose up go to very concerned! I’m not sure what direction you are trying to go here! At first it sound like you are accusing me of talking bad about him but then I don’t know! Anyways, I very rarely post on here and I’m no too sure why you have this small obsession to figure out who I am! You’re creepy!

    What law enforcement needs to do is shadow Braka and watch what he buys for minors….Cops have been made aware of what he is buying for minors but for some reason are looking the other way……just saying

    I know absolutly what is going on in my closet. I believe you should make sure you know what is going on in yours, BEFORE you think of opening someone elses!!!
    Braka is the one that has to live with what happened, every day. And those 2 days of the year are probably the worst 2 of them all!!

      wooo ,I think what TunaHelper was referring to and had nothing to do with why he sits in jail is the fact he buys alcohol for minors. And LawEnforcement is turning a blind eye to it ?? He is the Braka that lives in Hershey is he not ?? This is common knowledge in our village and yet it still is going on

    My concern is why the Post chooses for people who are doing jail time. I understand the need to post pictures to those with new crimes but those that go to just serve time doesn’t make sense.

      The Post does not choose who appears on the Hot Sheets. The Hot Sheets include everyone that was booked into jail. We appreciate your concern, but this is a matter of public record, and it would be unethical of us to pick and choose who appears on the Hot Sheets and who does not. We allow people full freedom, with the exception of curse words, to defend anyone that appears on the Hot Sheets. Just as we do not censor our readers, we will not censor the jail bookings. Thank you for expressing your concern and thank you for reading the Post!

    I don’t know Braka personally but I do respect that he turns himself in every year for these dates. That being said in 2013 judging someone based on the color of their skin is long past outdated. No one has the right to call someone the names that Braka and every other Black person has to endure day in and day out from small minded individuals that think because they were born with the skin color they have it gives them the right to judge. Our blood all runs red! And honestly I would much rather date a Black man who was raised by a strong Black mother who taught them how to take care of themselves, their surroundings and their family then a White man who can’t clean his own house, do his own laundry or get a job for longer than a month. And yes I deal with the stares and the glares but like I said its 2013 and NO ONE has the right to judge based on the color of anyone’s skin…how about we start judging people based on the content of their character instead. And Braka I would feel privileged to be your friend; your character shows that even though this terrible mistake happened you stood up for yourself and your are facing the consequences of your actions like a man.

      Sure am, lets hear the gossip you have about me since you ARE behind your screen name. That’s how it goes, right?? All of you only talk crap when your behind a fake name… Tell me something about myself i dont already know. Also, lil Braka’s my future brother-in-law. So what you racist “Hershey” people say about him, and yes i have heard what you call him in our town, your also dragging more locals into it. For every POS that doesnt like him, just remember there are 2 that do… And yes, your your kids this and my siblings hear it in school every day. What kind of people are you REALLY!! Clean your own lives before attempting to make someone elses life bad
