In cases like this ... if convicted, he should be put to death, because if it was my child that was assaulted, I would be 1st in line to either flip the switch or administer the lethal injection. But, this is Wisconsin and the death penalty was abolished in 1853.

How come his wife hasn't filed for divorce yet? It was her daughter he did this to!

To the witch-hunters that posted Why don't you keep your mouths shut, at least until both sides are heard. You lay blame based on an accusation without hearing or seeing all of the facts. The sad thing is that when this case does eventually get to court, so much will be suppressed that it will be almost impossible to know exactly what happened; further more preventing the court or the public, from making an unbiased conclusion. If you don't want to look like a total idiot by making uneducated assumptions, why don't you wait until the case plays out? Better yet, get involved and attend the hearings and actually watch the trial. Oh wait, from your idiotic posts, I see you already made your conclusions.

He has to be related to him, friends with him, or an employee.

@ truthseeker (smh); What? Either use spell-check or go back to school. Your grammar is seriously flawed!
Buppa John February 03, 2013 at 06:53 PM
@ Jack; Sorry but your assumptions are wrong. I just believe everyone is entitled to a fair trial.

Now I'm sorry that I read this article and the subsequent comments. Racine, Wisconsin must be full of retards, who jump to conclusions and side with local media opinion.
