Stockelman should have been hung until dead anyway. Life is too good for him.

I think the tattoo should be left alone. He deserves it for what he did. Also, the guy that gave it to him should have a couple years taken OFF his sentence.

Jared is a hero, and perhaps ahead of his time. If we let them loose, they need to be visible. There was a sick monster who moved in next to a school in Indpls not too long ago so he could use a telescope to watch the kids, if he had a tattoo, it wouldn't have happened.

the tattoo should remain, Katie will never get the chance to grow thanks to this murderer, No good should come to him. And the cousin should not have gotten any time added to his sentence, they should of just removed him from that prison.

I think the prision officials should leave the tattoo on Stockelman's face. It was no where near the amount of pain that the girl or her family suffered. and more than anything the tattoo was well desereved

No pity at all for this person, he should be on death row not just branded. Give the man that tattooed him a big sentence reduction.

Not that I am concerned about this sick child molester having some small scale revenge placed upon him, but why in the world does a prisoner have a tattoo gun? I certainly hope it is a makeshift tattoo gun. Regarding the revenge, and I don't want to hear any bleeding hearts screaming about the constitution, why not let Darwninism take place? That's exactly what happened to innocent 10 year old Katie.

Let the tattoo stay, he deserves it. Let it remind him each day of his life what he did to that innocent child. They should brand all convicted monsters that do this to children.

I sure wish I could find a dr to remove my tattoo for free.....oh wait, that will never happen. I am not a child killer. His tattoo should stay. Katies family has to live every day remembering what he done and he should remember it every time he looks in the mirror. Instead, we are giving him the cosmetic surgery he needs to help him forget what happened. He deserves everything that happens to him. I guess the dr wants to remain anonomyus so that his reputation is scarred.

I agree with the rest of the comments I've seen so far. This guy is a menace to society. He should have been put to death immediately after his trial. And Jared did a good deed after some pretty bad ones. He should get credit for it.

I can't believe this MD wants to help - even if he is a Christian - maybe he might just go too deep ! Plus, I hear it is harder to get rid of a tattoo than most people think - if it was so easy would Anglea Jolie still have Billy Bobs name on her arm??

Folks, I think he needed more. Sorry, but molesting and killing a child, he needs to be in general population. Like dirty cops, judges, and all, need to be with others they stuck it to. I would have given him a tatoo that couldnt be removed, so in my opinion, Harris should be ready for parole.

I can't agree more with everyone else's comments. Jared was right on the money. This should be (just the start) of the LEGAL punishment for all sex offenders...let alone child sex offenders. Furthermore, if I ever found out that a doctor of mine was volunteering his services to remove the tattoo, I would NEVER use his services again! Way to go Jared!!

What happened to that man was a good thing now everyone in prison will know who he is and what he did to that little girl. Even if he gets the tatoo removed Bubba will pay special attention to him. I think that that is better than him being put on death row. This way the guys in prison can make him pay for what he did.

Awww. I don't think the killer should be in solitary. Let him join the rest of the inmates.
