    HELLO!!!! It is against the law to be a pervert especially when it involves CHILDREN! You just don't get it do you?? Its a shame that we fear letting our children outside to play in their own yards because of twisted people like you. I think if castration was the consequence then maybe crimes like these would cease to exist and our children would be much safer.

    I'm a pervert. Is it against the law now to be a pervert? Answer: Nope.

    I AGREE WITH YOU MOM!!!! I know that if I had a daughter then I would probably castrate them myself if you want to know the truth. It is a shame that we have to live in a world where this kind of thing goes on all of the time. I am the mother of two boys and I know that if some pervert targeted my boys then they better hope that the authorities get them before I do. You just don't mess with innocent little children.

    I am glad they got this ONE-now let's hope they keep going. There are probably a thousand more in KY alone. It ought to be mandatory castration for the perverts.
