The families of the 3 murdered women have suffered enough!!! This is a huge slap in the face to them!!! Shame on Bob Petre and his gang... they should have some RESPECT for them and move on to some other "Hobby"!!!

Petre and his band of nincompoops should be locked up with Weger. They all have a screw lose and don't care what lies they promote or who they hurt in their quest to free a sexual deviant and murderer.
