    What a disgusting animal. I pray that he’ll die violently in prison.

    Come on Richie. Can you really blame this monkey for wanting to have sex with a woman that doesn’t look like a gorilla?

    He needs a bullet to the head. Why is the system protecting these slimeballs. We need to build a concentration camp for these people and let them live in hell for what they did and show it on television for the world to see that if you do the crime this is where you are going if convicted.

      You’re on the right track, Richie – but maybe we ought to also kill some of them!
