I feel bad for his family but I hope they lock him up for a very long time this time as he has done this before and walked.

If he raped a 9 year old, I don't know what else there is to know. You gonna tell us the 9 year old seduced him? You must be as sick as he is, must run in the family.

Your keyword there is "if". Since it has not been proven, you need to shut up! You ever heard of false accusations? Innocent until proven guilty in this country the last time I checked. IF this happened then yes, he deserves what he gets-but if not, you're being a jerk! And family members of the accused, of which I am not, are hurting over this. Your rude and childish remarks don't help anything. Maybe it runs in the family? How stupid. But judging by your name, you're not very mature anyway now are you?

Shut up? wow, last I looked this was a public forum. The idea here is that people with differing opinions can come here and talk about anything. I don't think you have the right to tell anybody to shut up. If what you see makes you mad, go Google something.
The same constitution that says a man is innocent until proven guilty also guarantees free speech. You can't pick and choose what applies to this forum.
And finally, maturity. Interesting that someone comes in hatefully attacking one person for his opinion, gets very defensive and starts name calling when they get attacked. If you have a dissenting opinion voice it, but you're not going to get what you want coming in here telling people to shut up, stay out of it, or mind their own business. That doesn't say much for your maturity level either.

IF he is guilty he should be publicly castrated then allowed to starve to death slowly.

Personally attacking? Says the person who accused softball_chick of being "as sick as he is" and making a general accusation of the family which you don't even know "must run in the family". Freedom of speech is great-but maybe you should know what your talking about first. And my point was simply this-people are accused daily of crimes which they didn't commit. Rather than that even being a possibility, you assume he is guilty and run with that, even to a point of upsetting and publicly demeaning the family. If that's how you choose to use your freedom of speech, more power to you-but that's a shame. I don't think that right was given to speak so carelessly about such a delicate situation. There are two sides to every coin. Speaking of "Google" something-why don't you go Google the number of false claims made by this child and the relation this child has to the accuser. Oh wait, you don't know that child because that isn't public information-which goes back to my point, you don't know it all-and therefore, should "mindyourownbusiness. "

I think everyone needs to mind their own business unless you have something to say that will help the situation. Most of us have enough problems without someone causing more. God knows what really happened in this situation and he knows the hearts of everyone involved. He also knows the hearts of all of you that think you have something to say and don't know anything about the situation. So, if you don't have anything possitive to say, don't say anything.

if YOU know something about the situation and want to enlighten everybody, then please do. And if you can do that with facts and not by just saying "hey you don't know so shut up", then even better. Remember where you are. If you are new to topix, maybe you need to read a few of the other forums before you let this one get you all stirred up. You would realize the more you tell people to shut up or mind their own business, the nastier they get. You're right, people on here don't know about what's really going on but we are all disgusted by a 30 year old man raping a 9 year old child. And that's what we're sounding off about. If it's not the truth and the facts come out later, this thread will die, unless some angry posters keep it at the top flaming each other. What's it gonna be?

Helpordonothing, excellent point. Playswithballs, yes I do know everyone involved in the situation and even know Patzann who made the very first comment-but certain details of this situation should remain private, and they will. Meanwhile, I'm done with this discussion. As you said, it will all come out in the end. Yes, new to topix and apparently not good at seeing people I love-both Patzann and Softball_chick, battling this out on a public forum. This situation has hit the family hard and no outside hostility is needed. I understand the issue at hand and how this looks to the public. A grown man, 39 years old, raping a 9 year old is absolutely disgusting and you bet I agree with that 100%. I see how the public would take that. But there is the other side to it. Perhaps the next topix will tell how a Madison Co man was falsely accused. Who knows? But I do agree it's time to end the personal war here.

That's exactly the point here. I guess I'm a case in point here. Last night I saw the news article and it got me upset then I saw Softball chick's telling people to shut up, so then I got upset. That's how topix works and I got sucked in too. I'm also done.

That's funny, if you're going to tell the story then tell the whole story. The 'real' father is around because the same guy accused of raping the girl punched her brother breaking his nose and he didn't feel safe in the house anymore so Mommy kicked him out....I suppose he's innocent of that too huh? Maybe if mommy would have been more concerned with the welfare of her kids than her relationship with a scumbag this wouldn't have happened to begin with.

Trust me if you want to have this debate on a public forum you will lose. You can lie to your friends and family all you want but the truth is still the truth and any moron with an IQ higher than 10 can see it.

I am ashamed of the family and friends for allowing non-family members and non-friends to get your goat. We are above that....Normally I would not post anything at all but I think EVERYONE needs to know that a public form is not the place for this conversation especially since NO ONE except the two involved knows the truth or "the whole story". All the speculation, accusations, insults and name calling is disrespectful and hurtful to us (the family). Family and friends DO NOT do that to one another! And there is NO debate over that.
wow

I agree with Justneedtosay... but what i dont understand is why so many ppl who know so little about this situation want to say so much about it. agreed, most of us are adults here but again most of us arent acting like it... its simple, if he did it, he deserves his punishment (just like anyone else).. but if he didnt then u all look like idiots... i believe the family is going through enough without the rude, disrespectful and clueless comments that are being posted on a public forum. even if u THINK u know the story, no one does, so keep it to ur self.. its nobody elses business... this whole "debate" (as someone called it) is absolutely ridiculous... the only reason it got started the way it did was bc one of the "extended family members" (patzann) was stupid and didnt think b4 she posted something that could hurt her family... guess u find out who ur real family is huh... as far as the rest of u, if ur family or friends of family, form ur own opinions but dont share it with the world and that includes you "truth teller", u dont have a clue what ur saying... to everyone else, hey have an opinion, by all means go ahead, ur going to anyway, but dont "attack" everyone else...
one more thing... i want to know how u would feel if this was ur family, ur private business, and u were being attacked on a public forum with false information and only half of a story, the way these ppl are....
what if it was you??

DJR the victim IS my family and I do know what I'm talking about. What happened to her is far worse than some words on a stupid computer screen dont you think?

The courts, DHS, and God will decide the truth so I'll leave it at that.
