    Should’ve took care of his a** in the street. They don’t have anything to fear anymore. He’ll probably get probation, an when he reoffends whose to blame then? A good switching while hes handcuffed for starters.

      The key word, ed, is accused of. If he is guilty, let him pay for the crime. Until then, all the self-righteous, holier-than-thou accusers need to put themselves in that position. Anyone can be accused of anything, but that doesn’t make them guilty. Save the slings and arrows until after the charges have been proven.
