    I agree that the man should pay for his crime. I am continually amazed at how many people act shocked when something like this happens. Things like this have been happening since the beginning of mankind. Majority of them were kept hush-hush if it got out or went to the grave with the perp and victim. Stories like this are just adding fuel to the fire of the shock and awe the media tries so hard to achieve.

    He should be tried, and if found guilty, spend the rest of his natural life in prison with no chance of parole. Most hardened criminals in our jails draw a line when it comes to child abuse like this and they will make his life difficult.

    would even be attracted

    He is not attracted to an underage girl at all. Its someone he can easily take advantage of. Would never happen if parents would set rules and regulations for their underage children. The little girl had no business being alone with this man at any time.

    It sickens me to think that someone would even be attracted sexually to an innocent 6 yr old child! People like this should not be able to walk the streets, ever again.

    Don't worry he will pay.

    Crimes like this really make a case for introducing crucifixion as a just punishment.

    A million dollar bond, well, he'll never bond out so we get stuck paying for his "rehabilitation", why not just sell criminals in the supermarket so we can just buy them directly off the shelf...same difference. Put a needle in his arm and save us some hard earned $$$$

    sickening. I don't know his relation to the child (if any).....but KEEP YOUR KIDS CLOSE! This day & time, they are safe nowhere but directly in your sight. Not everyone who claims to care actually does.

    They won't lock him up he will be put on probation and he will be right back at it again.
