    Nothing is alarming about his physical description by the police department. Since a person of Latino or Hispanic heritage would be a member of an ethnic group and not classified under a racial category, the description is sufficient. Also, a person can identify themselves as a white or black latino.....simply describing the "skin shade" and not denoting a racial background.

    Give me 20 minutes with this THING. That's all I would need to give him an attitude adjustment and a tune up that he would never forget, and I'll guarantee he will never want to even LOOK at another child.

    He should get 20 years in prison without early parole. Parents please, please take the time and watch your children.

    no more illegals!

    wcumom, I'd expect a more compassionate stance from a woman and mother than "illegal or not...send him back". Forget even "forgiving trespasses" & "judge not" and think about what you're teaching your kid(s) with your blanket assumptions and intolerance. For instance...innocent until proven guilty, he may be from North Dakota, the neighbor may not like his looks (like you) and just framed the guy 'cuz people like you would never believe him, etc.

    People...somthing to think about: This creep was picked up at least once before.......WHO WAS IT THAT LET HIM GO?.......That's what i want to know!! Who was it that let him go back out on the street to hurt this poor little child.

    I wonder if you can get in trouble for putting down whatever you want for race. So on all those forms, I could put down black Asian Eskimo and get all kinds of job preference and financial aid!

    Is that actually illegal or can you just decide to be whatever race you want?

  • wcumom May 5, 2009

    No need to "examine" his status,just send him back anyway!AFTER Conviction and DOC time is fullfilled.

    Thank you, Justin T. I think his immigration status should be examined.
