    "Brown was being held under a $100,000 bond the Wake County jail on Thursday." This waste of seminal fluid needs to be held UNDER the Wake County Jail instead of under a $100K bond. And yet another criminal to be tried, housed, fed, and cared for by the taxpayer.

    Pray for this little child and hope the child receives good counseling were it will not be affected by this in later life. I wish the child many blessings.

    He could not get a young lady of his age category, so he had to resort to a child. How sick is that! We are tired of seeing things like this and many mothers not learning by it. She should be charge with leaving her child with this child predator.

    That was the importance of this article?

    I get your point. The subject of chat should be about this man abusing a child.

    Young ladies when are you going to learn not to trust your new boyfriend around your children. I know you have family, ask them. Always be extremely careful who watches over your children. Make it safe for them. If you cannot get someone to watch them, then you take them with you.

    He should reap what he has sown. Let's see what our criminal (IN)justice system does (does not do) to him.

    A child is being abused by a sissy coward and we're worried about the apparent illiteracy of WRAL editors? Really? That was the importance of this article?

    "...arrested after scaring and markings..." Spellcheck isn't enough. It should also be proofread at least once. The word is "scarring".
