    Gee… what should we BAN here? I know – how about the liberal judges that gave him such a short sentence the very 1st time this jacka@@ raped a child & then the parole board that allowed him out on the streets yet again so that he could victimize yet another child!! Liberalism truly is the real mental health problem!

    not sure why you gave the previous a thumbs down, but perhaps you missed the obvious sarcasm? Since nobody else has commented on this subject matter since the comment above you, one would conclude that it was you that gave it a thumbsdown? If not, many apologies… if so, so sad that you missed the point…
    the previous poster was trying to stimulate thought through their apparent diatribe, but apparently was off base a bit since it requires a bit more critical thought process than they typical emotional response that the liberal media tries to manipulate through their typical sensationalism.
    PS. couldn't agree with you more!

    This idiot found a way to go undetected while he was in Cecil County by misspelling his address or giving a wrong zip code…I looked him up as soon as I saw him at our bus stop and nothing came up for his address but a neighbor saw a posting and found him on the family watchdog site. Anyway, when I reported it to the state they made it seem like he was harmless and that I was crazy…guess not…I am so sorry for this young girl, unfortunately she is probably not the only one.
