lookinfour said... I wish black leaders would focus their energy on combating black on black crimes rather than constantly playing the race card game. They seem to have all the time in the world to call out discrimination and voting boundries but where are they when it comes to incidents like this. No where to be found.

I wish white leaders would focus their energy on combating white on white crimes rather than constantly trying to take America back to its 1940s segregated standards. They seem to have all the time in the world to in their attempts to once again divide and segregate the countryand but where are they when it comes to incidents like this? What in "Gods" name can a grown @ss man be doing sexually with a 5 year old? Geesh! People!!

Another one still! To Lr103 Please don't categorize this issue racially! This is what it is! A useless no good individual who has no sense of decency or respect for anyone! This child is a victim! I hope and pray that this perp gets what he deserves. Doesn't matter what race he is, He is a sick individual! He needs a true child loving cellmate to remind him of the innocence he destroyed! I am praying that people stop preying on our children!!!! God Bless The Children! I agree with Nosense "So very Sad!"
