Obviously the guy will get a trial. That isn't to be debated. This is simply a forum where we get to voice our opinion. That's mine. As for condoning prison rape - I'm simply saying that once he is in prison - sex in there will be about as consensual as his was with a 14-year old. If everyone got shut down for their opinions because there hasn't been a trial yet - there would be no reason to even furnish a comment section on these newspaper stories.
...and InspectorBucket, or whatever, I hope people do wince and weep over this. I do wonder where the creep finds his prey. Other parents should wonder, too. Have you become so desensitized by violence and pornography that you can't or won't find this situation repulsive? It's like the spokesperson for Hamilton County stated on the news, "This is a dangerous situation." I hope this man goes to prison and gets to become someone's little 14-year old girl.
...and while you're correcting grammar, Lefty, realize that you had a grammatical error in your sentence. Figure it out.
You are right,Rolando. Sexual mores differ in times and countries. If we lived in certain African tribes, we would prefer same sex relationships. If we lived in ancient times, we could legally have sex with our slaves, no matter their age or gender. However, we have evolved (or some of us have), and any normal person would realize that sex between a creepy little old man and a 14 year old student is just plain wrong and disgusting.
My fear is that since the man is president of an internet/telecommunications company that he was able to hack into children's accounts to find his prey. He would easily be able to find out who is most vulnerable and where they hang out at. Also, I would like to say that a 14 year old is still a child and a minor. They are not wise to the ways of the world and the evil that some men can do. They are still in school, still growing (physically and emotionally)and cannot make informed decisions about major things in their lives. Children do not vote, cannot make a decision about buying alcohol or cigarettes. I would say the most important thing in a 14 year old girl's head is getting her nails done and downloading songs to her iPod.
Adults that supervise children should help them to make good decisions and mentor them to grow up to be good, responsible adults. In other words, you can't say that a 14-year old girl had consensual sex and you can't say that a married grandfather didn't realize that he was doing something wrong.
Consensual sex between a grandfather and a 14-year old? Please!! This is by the far the most disgusting comment I've heard. The man is hunting down CHILDREN and having sex with them. This man has daughters and a granddaughter. If I were his wife, I would lock him out of the house! As for listing his address - good! All pedophiles should be outed so the rest of us will know not to take our children around them.
