Too bad they don't tell us where these guys live, where the incidents took place, and whether or not they are in custody. I would hate to think they are in my neighborhood!

I would like to think IF these guys are guilty they would get as part of their sentence the same thing(s) they did to their victims. Oh and maybe have it video taped and put on the internet so they can see it replayed time and again like their victims replay the crime over and over in their minds.

Here we go again. I remember something a while back about a fisherman and a young girl at the docks. I know it's wrong, but where are these girls parents? It is a scary world we live in today. They are getting younger and younger. Again, WHERE ARE THEIR PARENTS?

My assumption from this article is that perhaps these people were trusted family members or friends that were "caring" for kids....maybe you know something different? Doesn't sound like a case of a 12 or 13 year old girl out and about in the streets at midnight....

I can't remember the sex offender website for Gloucester, but that gives last known addresses. I was thrilled to find there was a pedophile living 2 doors down from me. Luckily, he has since moved on.

If you go to Google, type in sex offender + Gloucester and the first hit will bring up a picture, with details of crimes and addresses.

Keep in mind, this is only AFTER they are convicted.

These guys need to be neutered. I know of a fellow in Gloucester who sexually abused and physically injured a sweet little five year old girl- and tore a family apart. He was 17 at the time. Twenty-six years haven't healed the wounds in the father of the child.

Why is it whenever there is a major sex crime in this city it is created by a white person? I would be embarrassed if I was white and lived in Newport News. The white community really needs to pull together and end this. They talk about the high crime in the East End and the high crime in North End... well both are heavily populated by blacks and always the major sex crimes are committed by white people. Put 2 and 2 together.

What are your demographics in Gloucester? According to the VSP website, 14.6% of the sex offenders in Gloucester are minority and in this case black. According to the 2006 US census, approximately 13.4% of the population is black. I don't know exactly what the demographics are in Gloucester but if it's close to the National ratio then looks to me sex offenders are following the population statistics there.

Excellent argument, given the numbers your using I may have to amend my originial statement to 85.6 percent for Gloucester, and 86.7 percent for the remainder of Hampton Roads.

So would the statement be correct in saying, that over 80% of sexual perversion cases are committed by Whites in Hampton Roads, and 80 to 90% of violent crimes, with more than 85% being inflicted on African Americans, are comitted by African Americans?

Making that case it's good to be white in Hampton Road so far as not being a victim 85% of the time of Violent crimes, but on the other hand you had better keep a keen eye on your wives, daughters and sisters to prevent your neighbor from violating them.

Gloucester is a small community, and I think that I know these people. Instead of talking about statistics and demographics and blaming whites blacks or whoever, Let's not forget that there's a victim here with whom this violation will stay for the rest of her life. It will not only affect her but also the lives of the possible children that she may have. Don't cast blame, just keep an eye on you and yours. This is not a race issue and frankly I'm ashamed that you would think to make it so. She is a real girl and your callous comments show that you really know nothing at all.

Sounds reasonable to me but I'm interested to know if 85% of African Americans are the victims of the crimes committed by other African Americans. I'm just a little skeptical of the 85% number. I wonder if that might be a little lower.

This is really what it boils down to. You can never ever ever trust somebody with your child. Question them, talk to them, educate them without fail. Even my 18yo son I am still talking to about the dangers out there.

Please parents, take care of the children that you have. They can never be replaced and we must be ever vigilent.
