I remember when the south hill rapist was in his prime - remember that there have been no more "south hill rapes" since his arrest. Remember a fine line between brilliance and insanity. He depression may or may not be real. His crimes are real and he should NOT go free. I have a daughter who has just started college who I want to keep safe. Everyone's daughters and mothers need to be kept from being harmed by Coe. Remember the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Remember what his mother did.

I agree!!!!I have twin daughters now, but back then I remember reading the book and reading newspapers, I hope no other parents & girls have to go thru another bout from Coe. He is where he belongs locked up like the animal that he is!!!Wild stalking animals really can't be fully trained.

he has pd with 27 yrs of his life. i have never heard from so many so-called "Normal" people who's hearts are filled with hate and vengence and so eager to take it out on someone who has pd for his one conviction. may God help us all if you don't find a way to channel your anger. there are many crimes worse than his. life is hard but hate hurts the hater most.

to the woman who wants him to pay for the rest of his life.you are not doing this to "save" anyone else from being raped. take a good look at this guy. would you really be afraid if he gets out? when was the last time any man of 61 raped someone with everyone just waiting to get their hands on him? sounds like you have been wallowing in making yourself a victim. you are the one who needs reformation. you should know how much other people have had to bear. try reading a newspaper or watching the news coverage.

I would have to agree with yankee bee. I watch the news and read the papers. I can see the frustration from the community. And yes what the man did was horrific. There is no denying that. But hate only breeds more hate. So where will it end? Everybody killing anybody for doing anything! One is only safe when one has let go of the past. Some of you may think this is a simplistic answer, but it is the only way. I would caution everyone to be careful how much you let the media play your emotions. There is a lot of unnecessary bias in this community. Love, pray, intercede, forgive, reconcile, accept.
