    fayncmike, are you and nufsaid one and the same?

    Did I EVER say the man was guilty or innocent? SHOW ME WHERE I SAID ANYTHING OF THE SORT. Look at you 2 jumping to conclusions about what I have said.

    And guess what!?! I'm not charged or accused of molesting a toddler, now am I? Nope. Not at all.

    Do I think this man is guilty? I have NO idea.

    "My position is that the safety of a 2 yr old is more important to me than the reputation of a grown man accused of sexually assaulting her."

    I bet if it was you that was accused of molesting a toddler you'd be singing an entirely different tune. Only a trial will decide the man's guilt or innocence.

    So what? Forget the trial and go right to the execution? The man is innocent sir, just as innocent as can be until a jury says otherwise. It doesn't matter if the crime is something as minor as littering or as major as blowing up the World Trade Center, without a trial there is no guilt.

    a little more info, this incident happened in April. A investigation (that took about 2 months to gather EVIDENCE) led to this man's arrest. This man was not arrested because they said "Whatshisname hurt me."

    nufsaid, How in the world would you possibly think I would try to round up a hanging posse on what I said? I have not bad mouthed this man. I have not said if I thought he was innocent or guilty. I just stated that I thought the safety of a 2 yr old is more important than a man's reputation. Sorry if you don't like that.

    And a 2 yr old CAN talk

    nufsaid, as I said, the 2 yr old is more important. Make ME out to be a bad person because I care more about a 2 yr old than a GROWN MAN, that's fine with me.

    "i dont know whether he did it or not..... if he did, he should pay to the fullest extent of the law. some folks are pretty quick to disregard the constitution and due process of law.
