    He was out on bond from a previous rape charge and he did it again. The article stated he was in jail on a $500,000.00 bond, so in theory, he can post bail and get out to do it yet again. Gotta love the system, and how does the DA and all others involved look the second woman in the eye when she asks why. What do you expect her to say when she is told, "that's the law"? When is it enough, when do we say we will take no more, when do we have a system of justice and punishment that is actually carried out? Do those that would be prefer to wait until society says enough and takes matters into their own hands? Time for the system to start dropping the hammer so the bad guys get the message that there is a punishment for the crimes they will commit. Take these animals off the streets and lock them away until they are simply too old to be harmless. No room, build more prisons to start and make them a place you don't want to go, tents and barbed wire works well.

    Lock him up and throw away the key. Maybe he needs real hard time with nothing to look forward to for about 50 years

    County DA offices are very quick to put satellite bade monitoring on individuals THEY consider dangerous. I would like WRAL to call the Cumberland DA and ask if he had a SBM system. There are two outcomes: 1) he had one and it did not protect anyone or 2) the DA chose not to put one on him. But you can bet your sweet bippy, some young teenager has one on for some stupid misdemeanor.

    Obviously a menace to society. Too bad someone else had to get hurt. I don't see why he's given any bond at this point.
