Like I have stated b4, I just dont understand Carries husband going along with this circus! Her first husband seen thru it pretty quick and got out! Why in the world would someone stay in this mess? Im not even saying looks are everything but she is as wide as the side of a barn, and as MEAN as anyone I have ever known! This poor boy needs to RUN for the hills! I can only imagine, the pure HELL he lives in!

Does Kari's husband not work? I thought it was Kari that didn't work. Did she have kids by the first man?

He did the exact same thing to her and Wanda walked him and caught him! She told the girls she work with at that time at jmh
if that happened was anything ever done? I don't understand a mother walking in like that and not doing anything about it! If that is true she is just as guilty and every person that has knowledge of situation.

She was not Debbie's mother. Debbie was a foster child and had no one. That makes it even worse, if you can get any worse. This whole mess makes me sick and to even look at these people make me sick. I don't see how anyone can have anything to do with them. Unless of course, they are just like them.

this is sick. I have known him and he has been a friend of one of my family members for decades. I was never really around him much but I can see how he can be a charmer and he cries all the time too. My heart goes out to some of the church members too because there are a few good families that attend there. My guess is that they have found another church to attend. At first it was hard for me to believe all this but obviously law enforcement has enough evidence now against him. Now I am just sickened.

You think you're sickened by this imagine how this girls family feels and they have another child still in this mess! You would think someone could pull her out of it but for some reason they see fit to leave her amongst this trash!

You know what saying what you said the elder, well if you were an elder you would not say that to people who have family in prison, not for messing with children either. That was a mean statement to mothers and I am one. God Bless you soul man you are doomed to hell for sure. Not all people are bad and not are good, you for one have no morals. That is cruel to a mother who worries about her children in those God forsaken places.

I just cant believe there are people still defending him! Hes a pervert and he thinks hes God's gift to women. He makes himself entitled to your church, your tithes and even your daughters! He puts himself on a level higher than human beings and acts like hes so nobel he should be worshiped. Ive sinned, ive sinned a lot but my sins have never affected anyone but myself... He couldnt care less about the future or well being of anyone but himself. Hes hurt many people before and he will hurt again. Hes never had to reap the concequences of his own actions.... Shoot, hes never even had to pay his own speeding tickets. He didnt pay for his own lawyer... I mean people, OPEN your eyes! He had a 50,000 debt to get out of his mess, his daughter is treasurer and... What fo ya know? They have 50,000 dollars missing...i mean good grief, hes even used the church to keep up his girlfriend! Shes drove their van and is livin in their house. How do you people still think hes so innocent and not see him for the dirty old man he is!

My question is why are people still sending their children out there? He rants and raves and goes on like the nut he is! When your children come home and tell you they are scared to go back these people send then back anyway! After this monster puts his hands on your child it's too late to protect them ! And Kari is just as bad as him she is the devils spawn ! I don't know how many people that he's still got fooled !

Im not saying hes innocent but innocent or guilty he should NOT be allowed around the children , PERIOD , until this matter is resolved. I heard 3 years ago social service was called on him and they would not check it out because he was a pillar in the community. See what was accussed of happening 3 years ago? Should they take a chance with more kids. guilty or not it is not worth the chance.

Also since he is still allowed at the school, to the parents that are sending their children to the school SHAME ON YOU ALL for risking your childrens safty around there. We all know Social Service will not do anything.

Thats where you are wrong....cuz not everybody will lie for him at the school ..for one thing half of the children at the school is family and the other half is the ones that are having doubts now whether hes innocent of these sex crimes...so it must be getting to john karie and the rest of the clan....now there gettn a little upset with topix from what im hearing...guess they know all there lies is goin catch up with them soon....poor babys...
