Things get out and details get told. You think the news media includes every detail in these stories?
I never said at one time I did not have any smypathy for this guy's family. They are the victims as well in his sick perverted fantasy game-I am well aware of that. What angers me is peoples' attitude of acting as if the guys just needs to be prayed for. Of course he will play up his mental defect now that he has been caught. How long might this have gone on had he not been discovered? Read the head lines on this WLTX web site and see how many kooks are doing sick twisted things to kids then tell me I have no right to my outrage and anger. It's a crying shame that kids cannot even play in their own front yards anymore without having to worry about a predator in the neighborhood. Those of us old enough to remember not living with that fear while growing up just seem less sympathetic. Look at some of the headlines on this WELTX website and count how many have something to do with a rape, assault, an internet sting, a school techer taking advantage and then ask me why I'm so outraged. Quite frankly, I'm just sick of perverts=period.

First off "things" don't just get out and rumor and conjecture shouldn't be passed as truth.
Hopefully with that age has come wisdom enough to know, as I've said before, THIS IS NOTHING NEW in the world. Back in my day it happened and was either ignored or they were locked up and you’d rarely see it on the news. In your day I’m sure ignorance was still the case, and it was kept quite because it would “bring shame on the family”. You see it more in the media and TV these days mainly because they are getting better at stopping it and making everyone aware. The internet has made it easier to catch and be caught. It has also made it easier to fall into temptation for someone that ordinarily would have never gone down that path in person. Everyone fights demons. Men especially fight these hunt, gather, conquer demons more than anyone will admit. The internet has made it all too easy to fall to them in what seems like a private fantasy world and won't hurt anyone but reality is there are actual people on the other end be they what they say or not.

I do not think that anyone is disputing, that if found guilty, James deserves the full wrath of the law; I do not think, however, that it is for any of us to judge, lest we be judged. The last time I knew, God was the only one with that power. You are entitled to your opinion, and, as a victim of child molestation, myself, I feel as much anger as anyone that there are so many perverted acts in our society. I am 58 years old and come from the time when it wasn't talked about, so I would venture that perversion is nothing new, it just has a wider audience with the internet, text messaging, etc. For however long James has been 'surfing the net' he has now been found out and will pay a price that not too many of us would like to pay. I pray for his family and pray that he gets help that he needs. Too you, I would say, look around you...real close...I hope that you do not live in a glass house because it just might come tumbling down!

Thank you for such insight. I remember you as a young man. AND, thank you for all the years of service you have given to our country. A lot of good came out of your family. My prayers are with you, your brother, sister and especially your mom.

Sorry, it's not rumor and conjecture and came from a very reliable source who I refuse to name.
You men with your hunt and gather demons go ahead a continue to pray for strength to fight temptation and control your urges. Once a person has been a victim of a pervert,(as I have) you find it a little hard to forgive and forget so don't try the old tired statement of "you're judging" "you live in a glass house". This is an opinion forum, remember? We give our opinions here. If you want to tolerate perverts and feel sorry for them then that is your right to do so. Quite frankly, I'm tired of them. You see how many people they hurt and how many lives can be destroyed by them? What adults do with other adults is one thing but when a person tries to involve kids-whole different story.

There is a reason people who know him are attesting to his good behavior towards them as kids (young people)- These stings are known for making such unthinkable situations into something the ordinary man might consider doing. A number of politicians were "caught" in bribery stings a couple of decades ago that were similar. And they got out of them by proving that they were entrapped by the methods used by the police. Even a law-abiding man can be conned into doing something he knows is wrong, if you convince him using the right words.

this man should be locked away forever if he is found guilty. i know his family and my heart goes out to them and hope that the public doesnt shun them because they didnt commit these sick acts.

The worst thing about these predators,is that,in the majority of cases,they will swear up and down that the victims "wanted it,or asked for it.Lock them up and throw away the key,there is no rehabilitation for people like these.
