    Where in Raleigh?

    I can't believe you people are making jokes about this. Hope it never happens to you and people make jokes about it on a public forum at your expense.

    I wish it would be as big a news story when these people are released from jail. Maybe then there would be more outrage about how many actually are released. This isn't something that happens by accident. Everyone knows most will try to do it again. They should serve life sentences, or be castrated, or both.

    Maybe he thought she had a screw loose?

    This is amazing, but hardly enjoyable with threats, tools, and force.

    Good golly -- what a record this guy has. Looks like he's been trying real hard to become a permanent ward of the state, and now he has probably succeeded. Why do we taxpayers have to pay for these creeps to live in air conditioning with a gym, library, and access to a free education?

    Personal opinion: men who are convicted (by DNA evidence so no one can protest that evidence is circumstantial) should made to lose their "family jewels" AND be in a jail cell with a convicted murderer who still has his and is serving a life sentece without chance of parole or "sexual relations".

    Praying this guy never gets out.

    Praying for God to comfort the victim, and her loved ones.

    God bless.

    I don't think it'd be so humerous, lemmeaxesumpin, if it happened to you or someone you love. At least have a little respect for the victim.
