He is not sick...he is turned on by overpowering innocent victims, and children. He should be locked up with some big gorilla for the rest of his putrid life.

Yeah Sarge, I know a few prisoners, I take them off the streets and put them in jail everyday. Contrary to popular belief, they lose many of their most important rights when they get locked up. I'm yet to find a prisoner with more rights than me. However, I was commenting on your idea that we summarily execute someone accused of a crime without them having been tried in a court of law. I give you that the system doesn't work perfectly, but at least its a system. Correct me if i'm wrong but wasn't that the most recent reason given by Bush of why we overthrew iraq's government?

It is rare to having anything this horrific to happen in our area. It's a small area and everybody knows everybody and whatever happens at breakfast is well all over town before dinner - no joke!

I was told that the lady was sitting in her car and he knocked on her window pretending that he was wanting to know the time. When she rolled the window down he socked her in the face, breaking her nose. He finally managed to get into her car and proceeded to drive her to a nearby secluded area. Apparently, while holding a knife to her throat and threatening to kill her if she moved, he raped her.They say that he planned to kill her but an unexpected passerby spooked him and she managed to get away from him. It has been said that it was an older female from M, WV.

God in heaven only knows how me managed to get his filthy hands on the little girl. They say that she is in UK hospital and in very bad shape. I haven't heard her name. That's the first secret tht I ever have known this small town to keep.
Supposedly, he coaxed the child by telling her that he was going to buy her a Christmas present and may have been an acquaintance to her mother.

Everyone should pray and ask God to bless the victims that they are able to heal and live a happy life. It wrings my guts inside out to think about this devil of a person and what he did.

As far as the politics are concerned, most people are afraid to share their opinion - especially in writing. However, I feel that Michael Sparks is an outstanding individual and he has done everything to hang tough and not to succumb to the unjust. It takes a big man to stand up in this town. He has done so and clearly has sacrified a lot to stand for what he feels is right. I don't know many people who would not give in or be paid off. Please remember him and his family in your thoughts and I'm sure that they could use a blessing or two. I'm not related to him. I'm not best friends with him. I have met him and his wife, and I read the papers. It is evident to me that this man has been very unappreciated for the job that he is trying to do - fairly.
