I know this Marine very well and have serve with him for 4yrs. This Marine and I were reserve police officers together and I know in my mind that he is not this kind of person. We work around hundreds maybe even a couple of thousands while we were stationed together. I know Donny Rage would never do anything like this. He was and still is a good friend of mine.

Just to add in my first comment I am also a Marine. Donny Rage is a good Marine and I hope the truth comes out, wether he did it or not do not look down on the Marines. We are one of the reasons that you have your freedom and we are still fighting for it to this day. So I ask everyone to look at the close picture of this Marine and tell me if he would do something like that.

I suspect that many men in their 20s would have sex with teenaged girls if they thought they wouldn't be caught.

The crime Sgt. Rage is charged with is essentially statutory rape. In Wisconsin, 4th degree Sexual Assault is the least serious sex crime, and it is a misdemeanor. No one is claiming that he used force or violence. Because the legal age of consent in Wisconsin is 18, any sexual contact with a minor is prosecuted as sexual assault -- even if it's consensual.

Since there are two witnesses who were present at the same time, it's going to be hard for Sgt. Rage to prove that he never had sexual contact with either of them.

Your friend seems to have believed that the term "jail bait" was meaningless slang.

I just wanted to say what ever happened to Innocent until proven guilty. He is the kindest, sweetest, most gentle person I ever met. He would never do this, he is happily engaged and he LOVES being a Marine. He respects everyone and he does his job. If you knew him you would know this. Don't believe everything you hear in the Media, they are trying to make a story more exciting. If you don't know him please don't judge him!!! HE IS INNOCENT!!!

I first of all want to say that I 100% believe Donny, he is a good guy and he respects women.The media makes him out to be something he is NOT.I have known him for years and he would never do anything to mess up his Marine career or the relationship he has with his fiancee.She believes him, he has never given her a reason not to.He has a lot of people that know him and know that he would never do this.We know the truth and we know that the truth will come out.He has faith that God will help him through this.Please don't judge him from what you hear from the media, they don't know him I do and I know with all my heart that he wouldn't do this.Ask anyone that really knows him and they will tell you the same.

how do you know there were two witnesses?how do you know that these supposed witnesses are telling the truth?You don't do you, you believe what you hear in the Media you don't know the whole story and you are only believing one side to it.I haven't heard one thing about any physical evidence...have you.

All of you who believe in Donny's innocence and are in Manitowoc on Oct. 23rd at 3:00-3:30 please go by the courthouse and show him that you believe in him. I know it would mean a lot to him. He cared a lot about the Marines and the people he recruited and also the people he didn't recruit. He wouldn't do what he is being accused of, he is not that kind of guy at all. He is respectful and caring he wouldn't hurt ANYONE!!!

Donny is a great guy! He loves his fiance VERY much and believe me I know. I am his fiance's sister. He is hurting so bad now, because all he has ever known is the Marine Corp. Now that is all over. He is such a gentle and kind person. He was soooooo passionate about his career, and I know he would have never done anything to jepordize that. I think that those girls are just tring to get attention. What sucks is that they have get their attention at someone else expence. Donny, we love you and will there for you until the end!

I was a Marine for 6 years. I then got out and became a cop. I was a cop for 4 years, before I made a tragic mistake and got involved with a woman I work with. This woman has psychological issues, to be sure, and I paid the price for it. After kicking me out 2 times, I moved out on my own. She called the sheriff's department and told them when I moved out I took tons of things of hers to include her toothpaste. That didn't work, so she started getting me in trouble at work. That didn't work, so a couple months down the line I was accused of touching her daughter. Despite my psychological testing and polygraph, my charges were only dropped down from felony to misdemeanor 4th degree sexual assault. I was told that because it is one word against the other, and that a teenage girl rarely leaves a trail and will be seen as having no motive to lie, I should take the plea. I now will have to serve 6 month in a work release program, then do sex offender registration for 15 years.

The law scares people enough to take a plea over the risk of trial. This girl had no witnesses, and it was her word against mine, and I was still told I only have a 20% chance of winning in trial. I had to think of my kids and take the plea. It will hurt me, to be sure, but with witnesses in this case, he will likely take a hit. I hope he comes out of this ok, once a Marine, always a Marine. However, a bunch of people saying he is a great guy won't get him off the hook. A polygraph to show the state will help, as will finding bs trails from the "victims".

Everybody is gulty before God, Somebody do anything wrong, as a bad decition, or bad fellowship, or bad customs, There is a chance for the Devil to try nock You. Donny, please think about it and repent. If you didn't it, If You are innocent, There is no problem before society. Jesus is your defender in this, and He never loosed any battle agains lying. Your family around the world is praying for You.
Yeah about that

I don't care how good a person or marine you people think he is. I am in the military and in the medical field. We see all kinds of cases involving things like this or worse. In some of these cases, I knew the people and couldn't believe it could have been them that did it. I also know Sgt. Rage. I would not put it past him either. Everyone has skeletons in their closets. His just happen to like teenage girls. For those of you thinking that a cop couldn't do this either. C'mon, you are in New Orleans. Capital of corruption in the police force. Grow up, realize that their are people in this world that are sick f***s like him. If it does turn out that he is innocent, then good on him. Doesn't change any of my opinions. Thats what they are people, opinions. So quit getting all butt hurt over it. I know for a fact that he knew he was going to jail. He kept telling people he was going to Iraq. Good cover up homey. Use our men and women that are sacrificing their lives and their family's lives for your own scape goat. Ever wonder why his fiance left him in the first place and then moved away? Quit lying to yourselves and watch him get what he deserves. He will have this on him for the rest of his life whether he did it or not. And the ones that say you talked to his "victim" and she was "looney". Getting raped might do that to you. For all you know, he could have promised these girls the world, then did what he wanted to them, then ditched them. This might mess with a 15 yr old girl's head, no? I am done ranting now. Feel free to bash my opinion and tell me I am wrong now. Doesn't matter, it will be a losing argument. Unlike this child molester, I have values that I will keep no matter what someone else says.
