You have to be kidding me, when are we going to be so outraged by these kinds of crimes that we don't allow the losers to get BAIL!
These family members that were hurt have the RIGHT to not fear them anymore!

We have to learn, especially judges, that these kind of people need to be kept behind bars.

I see everyone is Judge,Jury, and executioner. Innocent untill proven guilty no longer applies huh ?

While I agree if founf guilty they should all be thrown in prison and let the population all take there turn with them. I'm not going to pass judgment untill all the facts come in. News papers tend to blow things up.

I really don't agree with the judge allowing bail in this case, this person is accused of some pretty horrific things. He should be behind bars until his trial and not a possible threat to society.

It's interesting to see how everyone has convicted these men without knowing the evidence and a proper trial is months away. My wife worked with a lady at EDS whose daughter accused her husband of rape and incest. After a messy divorce and court case, it turned out the daughter (25 years old) admitted the whole thing was a lie because he wouldn't lend her any money. The damage was done and lives were destroyed. During this holiday season it may be worth reflecting that perhaps the Romans and Pontius Pilate may have been a little too quick to judge and crucify Jesus. I would wait for the trial and let my peers on the jury determine what if any punishment is warranted.

Thank you for a wise comment. Those of us in this town who know this man and his family - and I am acquainted with his lovely intellgent happy healthy daughters - appreciate those who do not rush to judgment. Some of us are aware that there are reasons to suspect what motives someone has for false accusations, based on a family situation of another member of the family (i.e. not a friendly divorce ). The rest of the brothers, father, uncle, etc. are not known to most of us, and not connected with our town in any way. The person we know seems to have kept his distance from that part of his family, and made his home in our town, with his own nuclear family, and made friends here too. He has an excellent, intelligent, kind, well-respected attorney as well.

People should be aware that false accusations do get made, often for very malicious reasons. Often prosecutors do not dare to not act to investigate them, and a few go beyond that to grandstanding for political reelection purposes.

Anyone with an interest in false prosecutions, and unjust convictions, should read the fine book by Barry Scheck, called Actual Innocence. It is concerning the Innocence Project, partly. That project tries to get retesting of DNA evidence, with modern methods. Sometimes there is retesting and a person in prison is shown to not be a match for the dNA at the crime schene. Then some prosecutors refuse to accept the results, and claim that there were two people there, the one with the DNA match, and the one they prosecuted. The term "actual innocence" comes from a quote from Justice Rehnquist. He stated that the actual innocence of a person convicted does not matter, if the judicial process looked fair.

I agree that people like this shouldn't be free but you have to think of it like this. If they're behind bars, people like me that work and pay taxes have to pay for those that are locked up. We pay for their shelter, clothes, food, and other things they need. I agree with putting them in uniform and sending them 'cross seas.
