Havent any of you ever heard of innocent until proven guilty? God is the only person that can judge any of us, and I choose to put my faith in him. Unlike some of you, I know both parties involved and there have been a whole lot of issues that none of you know about. Yall need to remember that there are still family members here on this Earth and they love their family member. I feel so sorry for each one of you that made your judgement without knowing the whole story. Maybe yall should look at yourselves 1st and everybody else next. God Bless each of you, and I pray for you all.

Havent some of you heard of innocent until proven guilty? Unlike most of you I know both parties...and there is alot of background information that yall dont know. God is the only one who can judge us, I guess yall forgot that. Most of yall need to check your own skeletons before you worry about someone else. I will be praying for you all.

Amen to Spartanburg cops being known for corruption. Look at all the cops being arrested there right now. The whole place should have it's license to practice law revoked. You all have an epidemic of horrible little children being raised badly by horrible parents. The little monsters are starved for attention and depraved as all get out and all the little bastards have to do is point their finger to get the attention and sympathy they crave. AND A MAN'S LIFE IS RUINED EVERY TIME. Once a child has pointed her little finger in your county, nothing else is needed to prove guilt. It's a witchhunt and good children are having their daddies ripped out of their homes. It's heartbreaking. People please raise your kids right and whoop their little asses when they lie.

I condone in no way what the man was accused of, but since when do we say "guilty until proven innocent?" We are supposed to value all life, all life has a chance to be saved. With that said, I shed no tear for the man if he did it. Yes, he probably did, but we don't know that do we? I can say from experience, someone can accuse you of a crime, you tell the truth, still be arrested, and it show up as "pending"(whatever the charge or charges), and you as a citizen; especially if you are looking for work like I was, are SCREWED! Destroyed my chances at good jobs and ruined my work record. That was in 2009. It's now half way through 2012 and I have only had one crappy job since the arrest. Currently trying to get another, desperately. And no, I was not fired from the crappy job, there was a layoff. Since...I have had my day in court. Yes I won and yes I have been exhonorated. Still, if I apply for anything government or state ,like a policeman, it will still show as exhonorated! THAT IS BS!!!! If you are found innocent the charge should be 100% wiped clean off any record on file. I had to go through the 9th circuit court of appeals after I was found innocent, and they wanted me to pay for the exhonoration! I argued against that and won. I was always innocent, it wasn't a technicality. Hell, I was surprised that year in November when they arrested me at my house in front of my wife and children for a charge thy sat on for over three months before deciding they were going to try to convict me! That was because they had no evidence other than me telling the truth that I was at the scene. Damn, so much for the truth. And the guy that tried to convict me had a rap sheet a mile long where as me, I had never been arrested for anything. Always a stand up citizen except for those few speeding tickets throughout the years! Lol. Seriously, I know most that are arrested did it, but for those if us that didn't...I can't tell how much it ruins our lives!

One more thing. I read there are many things that were not reported, because the guy is now dead. Know this, many innocents have taken there lives after being accused. You cannot, as I have discovered, attempt to get your life back anytime soon...if ever. It says this was a first offense. You never know, no disrespect to the child or their family, children do lie...especially under the scrutiny of a counselor. That I have seen happen. Again, I value all life as we should. I can't say that I'd miss a molester, but hey; will really never know. Throw no stones and pray for the child and the accused. You never know.

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?
$1500 a day per inmate is what they get
