What is wrong with these sickos...
We can't even send kids to school by themselves. This person deserves to be buried alive in a box full of fire ants.

yea i hope they find him too, but no need to kill the guy, thats not gonna teach him a lesson...i say make him suffer while he has consienceness...so that he can regret what he did and never do it again. if they kill him, he wont know that he's dead. thats just a temporary suffering for him...and long time suffering for his family.

God help that poor child. I hope he survives. I have always told my son what my mother told me, "if someone tries to take you and has a gun or knife, take the risk of being shot or stabbed, once you are in their car, your chances of escape become slim to none." I pray for his safe return.

This is probably another repeat sex offender pteying on our children. I prey to god that this boy is found alive and well. This is becoming an epidemic. And these pedophiles are becoming bolder every day. That in broad daylight in front of a bunch of kids he could be snatched is terrifying. When will our soiciety wake up and realize that these offenders can NEVER be rehabilitated!! They will always be pedophiles!

Vigilante justice needs to prevail in this case...when the pervert is found he should be strung up and hung in public. Fight violence with violence as that is the only thing that these criminals understand.

Oh, and to all of you who think my method is wrong...then you tell us what your solution is to curbing crime.

Why does this crap always happen in Florida? This state is a breeding ground for sex offenders and killers. How can a child not be safe at a school bus stop at 9:00 in the morning?

Laws need to be strengthened to protect our children. Sexual assualt on ANYONE should be manadory life sentence in prison. The only people who could argue that law are sex offenders. And they should be killed anyway.

There are plenty of ways to end this punk's life that will make him suffer and regret what he did. Keep him alive and he will find his way back to the streets and repeat his crimes. It's time to deter people like this by making an example of them. Swift, quick, justice and NOT a life in jail watching cable TV!!!!

Juan, I agree with you 100%. They are too soft on the criminals, no matter what they did.

When I first saw this report I said a prayer for the boy and his family. Now I want to Thank God in Heaven that the boy was found, is now safe and will be home with his family very soon.

ok, I'm VERY glad that they found him, but where's all the info on this SCUM who took him? It says in the article that the boy is with detectives, but it doesn't say a WORD about the criminal. Where is HIS pic?
There is no penalty harsh enough for creatures like him. You can't call those kind people or human. They feed off the bottom of the scum layer.

Well, I might as well come right out and say it, I'm not into the "torturing" of sex offenders or murders or any other El Sicko Skizoid! Though sometimes it does seem justified. When you catch a rabid dog, you don't waste time or medicine on it to try to heal the animal because it won't work. You just simply kill it so that it can't spread it's poison to any other dog or person. That's where I'm at. If you are convicted by 12 of your peers and have your "right to an appeal" and found guilty again by another set of 12 peers, then you simply are killed! A sex offender that has raped another person needs to be exterminated from society.

You'd never know. Some of these sickos may have been raised in NJ.
