Is that what Jesus would have done? Or do you prefer vigilante justice? Remember, he is accused, not yet tried & convicted. Perhaps you'd rather live in some other countries that shall remain nameless.

ajm, are you suggesting Jesus would have let him go. Why, is he even in jail, aren't we all innocent until proven guilty.

ajm, no, I don't like vigilante justice. I like for guys like him to be able to run loose and kill as many little kids as they want. THAT would make all us parents feel better, wouldn't it? Maybe YOU need to go live in one of those nameless countries that kill in the name of God...

Child killers don't fair well inside. This guy is just getting a dose of what awaits him if he doesn't end up isolated on death row. I couldn't be a LEO because someone like this would never make it to the jail alive.

Hopefully, what he (allegedly) did to that little girl will be done to him. There's no reason he should be 'protected'.
He even LOOKS like a child molester/murderer. People that are capable of doing something like that CAN NOT be rehabilitated. Let nature run its course.
But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Looks like the banjo player in "Deliverance".

Although yes he's still considered innocent, I'll wager they have DNA and he will be convicted and never walk the streets again. He may even take a plea deal to avoid the needle.

Moneymyst, he IS an inbred-looking piece of trash, isn't he?

Well ya hope to never think of an fellow human being as throw away piece of trash, but this case lends itself to a severe abortation pro death stance. If we had sucked the brains out of the low-life inbred and the tossed the remains out into the back yard for the cats to cover up, then wew just might not have had this problem to begin withl

Moneymyst,

You sure took a leap in your interpretation of what I said. And completely wrongly. I was just trying to remind the seriously unChristian among you that it is the legal system's job to convict & punish, not yours. Jesus reminded us to NOT judge but that is exactly what your hateful comments are doing. Of course, if you aren't Christian then you have your own set of values. Perhaps he learned his hateful ways from folks like you...

Not to judge.. but to have good judgement.

I wonder if he will be housed in the same prison as the little girl's father? Probably not, but it would be fitting.

ajm, nobody is trying to teach "hateful ways" in this forum. They are just stating opinions. Sounds like YOU are judging people as being 'unChristian'. I guess you would like for him to be turned loose until the legal system makes a decision whether he is guilty or not. I know, he can come live with you and your family and watch your kids until the system decides what to do with this guy. Seems like you would rather stand up for this guy than hear what kind of comment (hateful or not) some stranger that you will most likely never meet has. It is the comment section of a newspaper. Things that are said here are not influencing millions of people to think the same way. People have their own opinions. They have the right to them, the same as you have the right to verbalize your disdain of those of us who think it's a little bit funny that he got popped in the side of the head.

Maybe a known defender of the downtroden, Lowell Grisham, would take him into his parsonage or is the "Pharisee" all mouth and no action?

RE "Maybe a known defender of the downtroden, Lowell Grisham, would take him into his parsonage or is the "Pharisee" all mouth and no action?"
There is no legal or practical means by which Rev. Grisham could take custody of Mr. Holly. It has nothing to do with his religious affiliation. Not that Mr. Holly is downtrodden.

He will be downtrodden as soon as he gets to Cummins.
