There is no place in our society for people who commit such acts on defenseless children. Rehabilitation & jail time are not the answer. Our legislature needs to send a message to these pedophiles by making molestation a capital crime. Molestation may not be murder in the literal sense but it surely kills the spirit in the victim and no doubt strips them of their right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We go to war to defend those rights but allow our citizens here at home to have their rights taken by these domestic terrorists. How we spill American blood to save people in other countries but we refuse to spill the blood of a pedophile. It makes no sense to me.

I couldn't have said it better than you did Jim C. Makes me sick. As a survivor myself, it's true, you never lose those scars. Why should these sick... creatures be allowed to live in a so-called civilized society? It's an oxy-moron in the truest sense of the word.

I lived in Veedersburg for many years. I think this is very disturbing. I am a Daycare provider and find it horrible that someone trusts someone to watch their children and its being put to the test everyday. I treat each child in my care as they are intended to be treated, as a precious treasure lent to us by God. Its a shame that parents and children have to be put to the punishment as innocent victims. Were these Idiots licensed? I am still in shock at reading this news.

i just got on the sex registry list, Listen up parents there is all kinds of this nasty f**** out there. So i guess we just need to keep our children home out of parks, of the bikes (never relized how safe video games) obesity i'd rather have an obese child then let them out for all the freaks to have a chance in hurting my child. The system needs to something 5 years they get they serve maybe a year(good behavior, give me a break) the great U.S of A has let parents down. it rely is a free country!!

I live in Veedersburg myself and having small grandchildren I am sick at what these 2 (scums of the earth) being called a human is to good for them. And then putting them in separate areas away from the other inmates is too good for them also. Let them be beaten and abused by the other inmates. They did not give these children a choice so why in the world should they have a choice. Let them face everything they did to those babies..Jail is to good for them.Like I said scum pure scum.

How ignorant can people be? Take an active interest in your children and actually spend time with them. This is the only way you can keep them safe. This is a prime example of trusting people that don't merit trust.

The parents willingly took their children to these people. In this case the children would have been safer in a park by themselves.

Exactly. Take a look at these 2. There is no way in hell I would have dropped my kids off there.

That solves it? Does not stop cameras or a million other ways a kid could be hurt by people like that.
