    I've known Tommy a long time and yes, he is entirely capable of doing this...I also know the little girl, poor thing. I feel horrible for her.

    That poor child, I can't even imagine what is going through her mind! To trust someone and then have them do that to you, I hope she gets the help she needs. Otherwise, who's to say she won't have trust issues with men for the rest of her life. I pray for her and her family as they go through what I can only imagine is the worst thing to happen to their family.

    He had his Mug shot taken without his artificial arms, that he has worn and used all his life... How do much you want to bet that he goes to court in a wheel chair? I feel sorry for the seven year old girl.. Think about how terrifying that it must have been for her, having a man with a hook for a hand after her..

    What you all who keep defending him seem to be forgetting is that, he ADMITTED to doing it. Just think about that for a minute. Why on this Earth would someone ever ADMIT to such a horrible crime if they were innocent?

    I say if he has admitted to it once then he is guilty. Give him life or give him death. A man here in Wisconsin molested 3 of his 5 children and he died in prison. One less child molester and that was my nephew. I have no sympathy for any of them creepy sick people. Another man did a job on his step daughter and a car fell on him and killed him; he met his waterloo. Again, one more less child molester. I say get rid of all them creeps.

    For those of you that say he wouldn't do that. That he is a good man. Or what ever I thought that of a family member of mine. Guess what?? I was wrong. I will not say if he did or didn't all I will say is that you can't trust anyone with your kids. Who you least expect it from could be the one to hurt them them most. I pray for all involved.

    I've known Tommy since he was a child.. He was born without his arms and only one leg.. But for his right arm he had what looked like two long fingers fused together. It would reach his chin. He learned how to write and everything with it.. They made artificial arms and a leg for him. He learned to play ball, run and play with them. He even learned to swim. I hate that he turned out to be like this. But I know that it isn't impossible for him to rape someone if he wanted to.
