  1. Are you a fool or a racist…. because he is black he should be rehabilitated to waste tax payers money? When they release him which your pres will do, he should be your neighbour… that will be fun. This scum bag should rotten in prison and be a wife for some of the other inmates.

  2. I hope this young lady receives love and support from her family and friends. Remember she is the victim. That sad memory lives on forever . These rapist needs Physiological help while in jail, so upon their release they wont repeat the same offence.
