Thank you Mr. Tessnear for saving the taxpayers of SC from having to pay for your housing and defense and putting up with you on the streets of our state for the rest of your life. We all show keep that young boy in our thoughts and prayers, he still has to deal with the effects of being victimized.

Coward!! Could not stand the heat so he killed himself. Yet, his accuser, if what he was arrested for is true..has to live with that nastiness for the rest of his life.

Prayers for the victim and his family. I hope he will know that, unfortunately, he is not alone, and can find the strength to deal with what has happened to him. As bad as it was, it could have been worse.

Rope should be standard issue in the jail cells in our state. As much as the pedo-perv deserves the embarassment of his face being plastered on every TV and newspaper, I feel his choice to "execute" himself has saved the hard-working, law-abiding tax-payers tens of thousands of dollars. I feel sorry for his family.

Does anyone know the average cost of prosecuting and maintaining prisoners in our state?

This gentleman has never hurt anyone. He will be dearly missed in our community, as he was always helping others. He dated my daughter fow awhile and she was tickled to death with him. For example, he would always be the first person to babysit children, or give old folks in the community a ride to the grocery store. You people that do not know him should not comment. This man was a saint, and that child is a little liar trying to get attention. I really wish every man was like this, and i could bring him back to life. the will of lord will bring him back to us in another child. Thank you Jesus

I told you this child is a little liar. Do not make me angry or I might do something we all regret. This man attended my church, and he taught kindergarten there. He went to the local rest home and fed old folks. If he were still alive, i would want my daughter to have his baby. Thank you Jesus

What do you mean by "Do not make me angry or I might do something we all regret." ???

If you are for real, you need to talk to a doctor or someone at a mental health clinic. Not being mean or sarcastic, really, it sounds like you need some help.

If he taught kindergarten at your church,some of those kids are probably going to need therapy before it's all said and done.

Yea, you know him....He fooled your A$$ too. 1st to offer to babysit children or take elderly on their errands....... Yea, perv's are famous for that!

And NO, I do not know him. I know someone exactly like him. Perv's do not advertise that they are perv's. They intergrate themselves into a community as "the best thing since sliced bread". Then they gain your trust and then WHAM!!! Your child has been molested!

Granted, there are children who have made things up, and they need to have their butts whooped! And then (God Bless Them) there are children who say things that the perv's say to them and have know idea what they mean.

You say you may have to go Waco. Listen, I do not know how much "life experience" you have but I have over 50 yrs. And you know what, I learned lots. You don't have to make threats. Apparently one of your children or maybe "you" have been a victim of this person.

Get over your "this man is perfect" opinion of this perv and look real deep into your soul and tell me you would leave your children with this "POS".
