    oh goody another race poster wanting to talk about how much worse whites are and how much they look down on black people when in reality black people look down on white people just as much. a serial killer is awful, but a rapist is going to get more attention when a four year old is involved no matter what color he is.

    I like it when everytime they show a black man it is about million post on here, but yet the serial killer has few to no post. I guess because he is white and he did not do it. Why don't some of you black and white posters go to his page and post hateful comments. I know he is dead,but since you people so much on people getting the death penalty there should be some hoorays on his page.

    To B from NC, please just stop with it. It seems to me you're the only one up here trying to start a race issue. Blacks talk so much about whites, but when whites make a comment it's the worse thing in the world and all the cracker names you can think of. Stop thinking your so much better on ethical conversations. if this was a white guy, I would have the same opinion of him and I am sure everyone else would. This guy raped a baby, and gave her an STD, and you want to comment about race, pathetic.

    To: "Victim in the 60's". God bless you. It seems as though, through the grace of God, you were able to overcome this horrendous tragedy. I too, was abused, both physically and mentally. Until the day my mother passed away, she related that I "deserved it". I hardly see where a nine year old would deserve broken ribs from a beating. You are so right, "No one has a right to abuse or violate a child's innocence in any way!!!". Until we, as a society can find a way to defeat the abuser's, this will always be a scourge upon society. May God continue to give you the courage to fight!

    As an 8 yr. old victim of a pedophile step-father I am happy that cases such as this are being reported, investigated, tried and convicted in this century. When I experienced this abuse there was no Child Protection through Social Services nor the local authorities. My sister was also abused, sexually and physcially, but until my older siblings heard her story, I was pretty much "on my own", especially since my own mother was in denial due to the fact that he "took care of us." It was a hell of a price to pay for education and welfare in my opinion, but through God's grace and the love of a good man and some real friends, I have grown stronger and wiser through the years. I pray that God will bless this child with the same grace and peace I found and that she will learn really soon that she did nothing wrong and it isn't her fault. She has been robbed and no prison sentence will ever replace what she has lost. No one has a right to abuse or violate a child's innocence in any way!!!
