    It is unfortunate that society ranks this as one of those tolerable crimes and allows them to be out in the street.

    Another person who's sexual preference is rape.

    It takes a sorry person to commit a horrific crime such as this! Throw him in jail and throw away the key forever!

    Only one answer for this - castration.

    Praying for the woman and her unborn child.

    God bless.
