To the one person that stood up and told the secret, you are a hero! Because of your courage, you have either stopped or prevented any more horrible acts to be committed by this monster. You have saved yourself and the others! I hope that this gives you the strength to go onward in removing this perpetrator from our world. God bless you and thank you for your bravery.

I pray a most urgent prayer for all of the young people in this world who are suffering at the hands of adults for their own sinister sexual pleasure. Please help free our most vulnerable children from the horrors they may be experiencing.

We are supposed to pray for the bad people also.
As a child sexual assault survivor I find that hard to do.
But if you don't want to pray for the terrible, horrible monsters in the world, that is okay, JUST PLEASE PRAY FOR THEM NOT TO HARM ANYONE ELSE.

Oh dear LORD, please hear my prayer and all the prayers of people who seek to the end of suffering for our greatest gift from you: our children. Thank you LORD for sending your healing power.

That will work.....not.

I am a child sexual abuse survivor and
Prayer is our strongest weapon in this world.
Pray without ceasing.
GOD hears all prayers.
Don't give up,
Don't ever give up.

GOD LOVES YOU!

It sounds like you didn't give up and my hat's off to you for that. You keep up the prayers. The world sure needs them.

He doesn't belong in prison. He belongs under the prison.

He'll make someone a nice little girlfriend where he's going...IF he makes it there.

If guilty, use a dull knife below his belt line.

To ALL VICTIMS who stand up and speak up against these subhuman pedophiles who get away from these types of crimes.. My heart and prayers go out to all the victims and their families and offer a "atta boy" to the investigators that took this garbage off of the streets and out of the community. Bruce Edward Green aka The Dirt bag--> very soon you will become good friends with the booty bandit wither you like it or not!

Did he act alone or was he part of a ring or group? There have been many child porn arrests recently with Jacksonville ties.

This guy has been doing horrible acts for a very long time..58 is only the ones they know now, what about the ones that are still out there???
How did he get away with this for sooo long??? Cut his willy in many little pieces and feed him little bites of himself while he rots in prison for life

If he is found guilty.. handcuff him and put him in the street with the mothers involved I'm sure he'll never harm anyone again!
