100% NO TOLERENCE !! I AGREE

100% NO TOLERENCE !! I AGREE !! These are sick PEOPLE ! This is a precious little girl,who trusted him an felt safe with him. This has scared her for life! My thoughts an prayers are with her an her family.

Rape of a child

I totally support a mandatory death sentence for all child sex predator criminals. This crime should be a 100% no tolerance.

He probably went to school with R.C.

This idiot probably is one of the people from Tabor City who thinks R.C. is a fine fellow. I hope he rots in jail if he is guilty of this crime. Death is too good for him. Just another inmate who will have a better life in prison with three hot meals a day, t.v., exercise room, college courses, free medical care....all at our expense.

Perhaps

Tabor Cityites ahould focus on vermin and pedophiles like this while the SBI performs its job in looking at Senator Soles' actions.

THEY SHOULD HANG THE NO GOOD

THEY SHOULD HANG THE NO GOOD SOB ON THE COURTHOUSE AND LET ANY ONE WHO WANTS TO COME BY AND HAVE A SWING AT THE POS.

Child Rapist

I'm not sure if that would be enough punishment. I'm thinking 4 limbs, 4 horses.

Too quick and easy

The Orientals, in the 1700s and early 1800s, had a cure for about anything.

Tell the guilty party to choose a limb for removal and he might go free. So he would; and the Gaurd would use a sharp sword to remove the chosen arm or leg. Then apply hot tar or pitch to the stub to stanch the flow of blood.

Three weeks later, when he has regained his strength; repeat the process.

Continue repeating the process until all 4 limbs are gone.

Then put him in a sack and chuck him in the water.

From what I have read, seemed to be effective.

A special place

If you are guilty of this crime, there is a very special place you will be going and it won't be a fun time for you.
