I wish you would just shut your ignorant mouth! Everyone and Anyone who has come in contact with him knows that he is a good person and is in no way capable of such horrindous things as this. Danny is good and that is how I have known him and will continue to think of him.I would only think "family" would know this and not have to be told by someone else. You must be the small person that has nothing better to do with her time than to tear up a good person on the internet. Destroying a persons character is about as low as a person can get. There is more people supporting him than falling for the lies that you are trying to keep stirred up. Do everyone a favor, if you know what that is, and get off of this before you make more mistakes!
I am SimplySue's daughter! I know when everything is said and done you are going to feel pretty foolish! I have known of my mom's abuse since I was a very young girl! Mom never let me around that man alone! You never think it could be someone so close but thats how it always is! The one you least expect!! DANNY SURRATT is a child molester! He may have not been found guilty for hurting these precious little girls yet, but I know for a FACT he molested my mother!! To all of you rotton a** COPS who are sticking up for this perv SHAME ON YOU! You should have your badges taken away! YOU are not PROTECTING AND SERVING! My mother never wanted to hurt her family! She can not let this happen again! I pray for these brave girls and their family! I also pray that that bastard rots in jail FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE and for the rest of you who are sticking up for that CHILD MOLESTER I CAN NOT WAIT FOR YOU TO SEE WHO DANNY SURRATT REALLY IS!!! THANKS TO ALL THE WOMEN AND GIRLS THAT HAVE COME FORWARD AND IF ANYMORE ARE OUT THERE PLEASE BE BRAVE AND COME FORWARD!! WE NEED TO STOP HIM FROM HURTING ANYONE ELSE!!!!

Thanx Blue Eyes. You're a great daughter and I'm really proud of you. You're right, in retrospect, I was probably overly protective of you when you were a kid. I didn't trust many people around you at all. I always preferred your friends coming to our house. I know I started talking to you about good touches and bad touches before you even entered kindergarten. And if I told you once, I told you a million times I would ALWAYS believe you no matter who it was. Thank God we didn't have to deal with anything like that with you.

Love you so much sweetheart.

This is the third time I have posted and I apologize if it duplicates.

I am SimplySue's younger sister. We have the same father, Danny's uncle.

Sue told me about Danny's sexual abuse of her 23 years ago. Needless to say, I was shocked. I respected her wishes not to say anything to our family because it would cause a great amount of anger, grief, and divide us all. We adored our aunt and uncle and our father would feel great pain because he left her with his older brother and his family thinking they would protect her. Unfortunately, the opposite happened.

I was not abused but when I think back to the times I spent at my uncle's home, I was never left alone with them. Sue or our father was always with me. Sue was very young but she still made sure she protected her little sister from being violated by a family member.

We love Danny and his family but have chosen not to have contact with them since his wonderful mother passed away a few years ago.

Telling the district attorney about this past sexual abuse was difficult experience. She has been reliving the abuse and memories she had chosen to repress are coming back like they happened yesterday.

She chose to tell these horrible parts of her childhood because she wanted to support the recent victims and let the authorities know there may be a abuse pattern due to the past. The truth had to be told and everyone must live with the consequences.

If you are basing your opinion of an abuser's guilt or innocence because he/she did not abuse you or your loved ones, you are mistaken. Abusers look for a victim that can be manipulated not to tell and may be going through their own difficulties and need emotional comforting that can move onto physical abuse. This interview with molesters sharing how they groom their victims is frightening but informative: http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Oprah-Talks-to...

Sue's family is supporting her during this emotionally difficult time just like she supports us during our hard times. She is a loving and kind woman and has given support to friends, family, and strangers her whole life.

We love Danny and his family even today. We were taught by our family to love unconditionally.

We ask all of you to please be respectful to the victims, their family, Rose, Danny, and Sue. This has been a heart-wrenching experience for everyone and we hope justice will come soon so we can all move on and heal.

Thank you in advance for your help and understanding during this tough time.

Hello. I'm related to the young girls that were abused. I just want to thank you for praying for my family. We knew the truth would finally come out. I am so grateful to your mother for stepping forward. She is an wonderful woman and a God send to the girls. Please take care of her for us because we owe her so very much. Thanks, God bless.

SimplySue, I am the same way with my little ones. And if I dolet them go we have the good/bad talk and when they get home, I do ask questions. I really haven't told them about the abuse I went through, but when they get a little older, I will. Thanks again! I'm so happy you have a great TRUE family that is standing behind you.

When will this ever go to trail? And are the family members still taking sides with Danny, over the little girls?

They should move it out of the county already. They have gone through every judge, I'll bet. Who knows about the danny supporters,but I do know that there are more questions in their heads, now that they have heard about the DNA in the little girls panties,and that his own cousin has stepped forward and made the same claim against him.

I love the surratt family they r the nicest people ever and i wont sit and let u slander because karma will come back!

Ok, please explain how dna, salivia get inside this 8 year old girls panties from this man? Was Danny using them as a napkin??!!! He said she said is not what is going to be proven in court. This is a sick man and I think it is too bad that he felt that he had the right to do these things to innocent children. He did so many wonderful things for the community and is now hiding behind these good deeds. What a sad waste.

well isn't Danny so lucky he didn't Molest you because you would of told! You don't know what it feels like to me molested. You are ashamed, sad, mad, guilty, like it's your fault. and you can never say what you would do because you were so lucky to never have it happen to you! And how dare you blame Simply Sue for these girls being molested. Keep the blame where it belongs...and that's with Danny! And as far as Michael Jackson, he had money that people had their eyes on. Please tell me what these ladies have to gain by coming forward? Noone can seem to tell me that! and Simply Sue is doing something with her life. She is helping other victims! So before you post, please check out your info first! I'm so glad they still have supporters because they are going to need you when he is found guilty! And as for the DNA, please explain that to me. Explain how it got into her panties? And at that it's enough to retest it! Jump off their bandwagon because you lookas stupid as they do!

Make a name for themselves? What a laugh. It's obvious that you know nothing about incest or child molestation. There are many psycological aspects that prevents the child from telling anyone. For one thing the abuser grooms their victim(s) and uses guilt and fear to keep the child from telling. They make the child feel as if they are at fault for what is happening to them.

For me it was several things that kept me from telling. First off it was back in the days when sex wasn't spoken of, especially to little kids. When it first began, I really didn't know what was going on, but I did know it was wrong and had to be kept secret. Why did I think that? Because Danny told me that!!!

Fear was a big part of it for me too. Not fear that he would kill me or my family or anything like that. My fear was that my father, Uncle Jack and Aunt Helen, my grandmother, and other family members wouldn't love me or want US around them anymore.

So you see, in my little brain I not only trying to protect myself, but Danny as well.

In this case, with Danny's GRANDDAUGHTERS, the older one didn't come forward until she found out he had started molesting her little sister. The other lady that has come forward is one of his daughter's friends. She came forward, like I did, when people began to attack these two INNOCENT CHILDREN and call them liars and other nasty names.

I suggest You get INFORMED about child molesters and their victims. Because not telling IS VERY VERY COMMON for the victims. And it's people like YOU that makes us not come forward,

TO FofV, Could you have the girls mother call me when she has a little time? Thanx for all your help and for being there for the two girls and their family!

I hope that those that are not educated and informed about child molstation, will take the time to go to one off these links and learn the truth about pedophilia, incest, and the mindset of both the victims and the pedophile.

Hopefully you will learn that GOOD PEOPLE, have addictions, abuse children and commit other crimes against other human beings.

God Bless you too FoftheV's! I really hope that some of the people that don't realise the different mindsets of both the pedophile's and the victims.

I don't think that people realise the damage that is done to the children that are molested. Nor do they realise that our entire lives will be affected by their abuse. ESPECIALLY when the abuse is done by a family member or a person that they love and trusted.

On one of Oprah's interviews with 4 pedophiles of various ages, one of the younger men that had molested his cousin from the time they were both very young said something very true. Oprah asked him what he thought was the thing he regretted the most and he said, "I killed the person SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN.

That is so true.

Tell the girls I love them and pray for them all the time.

Oprah asked him what he thought was the thing he regretted the most and he said, "I killed the person SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN.
That is so true.
Tell the girls I love them and pray for them all the time.
I seen that interview. I think you or your sister posted the link. Maybe it should be posted again so that these people who don't know what we've been thru can see what the pedophile's mind set is. And what that man said is so very true. Love you and we are praying for you also. and i just texted the older girl and ill email you what she texted back.

i think you guys make it highly overrated and i do know about stuff like that but it takes SOMEONE to put a stop to it! But if he is so guilty why is a lot of the charges being dropped hmmm??? Well i guess it took many years for you all to research such things as well :) i just find no reason to bash someone online be brave enough and speak to their face what yall are doing is slander because everyone is hear say or bandwagon so take a step up to the plate and if you feel so strongly talk to danny and the family themselves not bash them over the internet or do they have u scared to speak up about this as well? thats all i say u may feel im wrong or whatever i do not care i just cannot stand u all bashing people whether right or wrong dont bash danny or dannys family everyone deserves respect and has the right to their own opinion do it the right way. sheez but u all r such good people go ahead and bash me for supporting danny along with the many others! I feel its soo false. thank u goodbye
