    well-now the trial is over and guess what that overwhelming evidence was not there-there was none-no evidence whatsoever-so all u uneducated ediots out there can now see that he is or was not guilty-i hope the people who tried to ruin his life can live with it because it almost killed him inside-and his family as well-the kids r inocent though, they done what they were told-and i feel sorry for them-i love to read these comments just so i can sit and make fun of the people who are so dumb and think they are so smart-hope you all eat ur hearts out cause he is now proven inocent-haha

    Dee---oh it was and is true. Just wait it will happen again because people like you allow it to. Hard to convict someone who is friends and have pull with the whole town. this town is all political and it is not what you do but who you know and Robert knew plenty in high places. That is what this boils down to. If that would have been anyone else without his pull he would have been gone for 20 yrs.

    I think that some are taught to lie as well as other things that happen in life. I love children and have daughters of my own, but the fact is that this is not true.

    I believe in the court system. Please lets leave the harsh gossip about Robert Brewer and the victims die. We have to believe that justice will prevail. I pray that the truth will come out and all if any are guilty will be punished. If its a frame or truth. If its a set up punish the ones that done this, if he's guilty then do so to him. Lets hear the facts not the gossip. I pray that this all ends with a fair trail and let the chips fall where they may.

    Well since my last post on this thread I have been researching whether or not Robert did this. I find it hard to believe as I know the man and have for years but from what I found out from very neutral sources and some even close to Robert that the evidence is overwhelming against him. Looks like it is going to be a hard row to hoe for many years to come there for Robert. Sickens me to even think that he would do this but all I can say that he better get the Vaseline ready cause prison inmates do not like folks that touch kids. And old Bob and Tom show song rings to mind right now when I think about Robert in prison. I am sure that you all know the one that I am talking about.

    Robert is going to have his friends at court to say what a good guy he is and what a good coach he is. That is so absurd. This man has molested at least 4 girls we know of and me personally wouldn't even want to be connected to this man in any way much less to go against these children who will have a hard enough time testifying in front of everyone without people saying how nice the man is. He couldnt have done this. Well you that will be up there better thank god it didnt happen to one of your children or I wonder if anyone talking on his behalf will even have children or girls for that matter. Anyone upholding this man is guilty of taking up for a sick child molestor.

    I agree completely. This man is guilty. He was arrested again a couple days ago for another child. How many will it take to make people open their eyes and see this man for what he is. A CHILD MOLESTOR. I also believe there are many more we dont know about. Why would they want to tell? Look at the first 2 families that are standing up for their children; they have been lied on, talked about and hardly anyone is standing beside them. and why? Because they dont have the name Brewer? That is stupid plain and simple. Child Molestors come in all classes from poor to rich. Robert should pay for what he has done and I hear so much about this is for money. What family would go through this for money? None. But they should receieve any and all that they can after what has happened to those girls. Those children will be ruined for life; they will never be the same. Imagine a teacher-someone you should trust and look up to.They should sue; send a message that schools need to hire better.
