    Yep, he was breaking into my house, and I killed him.

    When things like this happen, law enforcement doesn't need to be called until justice is done. If we leave it up to our current court system, he'll get a little probation and be right back out there to offend again. If enough people start handling this on their own, laws will begin to change. I'd gladly go to prison for my daughter leaving her with the knowledge that whatever piece of garbage hurt her would never do it again.

    Why do we let people who hurt children like this live?

    Praying for the child.

    Blessed she stepped up and told someone.

    women really need to be careful who they bring home when they have young kids. Hire a babysitter and get a room for God's sake!

    2010, look, I hate guys that do this, but these kids need to come forward sooner or there needs to be very strong evidence. kids these days know how to get adults in trouble. i am the first to condemn smuts that do this, but there better be some proof

    I'm just saying a 10 year old probably knows they could get an adult in trouble by saying "they touched me wrong," imagine if it happened to you.

  • TeenDAD Aug 12, 2011

    I hope they dont convict people just on the basis of what kids say....I mean he's probably guilty but kids make stuff up and repeat what they read and see on tv. Ideally you'd hope for more evidence but I dont know if thats even possible.
