This article appeared in my local news and I have not heard anything quite so disgusting for a long time. It seems that a woman was accosted by a man on her way home, savagely beaten and raped, then forced to accompany him to her home where he then attacked and raped her teenage daughter. Due to the quick action in reporting the crimes to the police the suspect was apprehended shortly thereafter. It was disgusting enough for this pig to violate the poor woman, but it must have been unbearable for her to have to stand by helpless and watch the same thing happen to her daughter. What do you think of this story? Here is the link:http://www.whiotv.com/news/16655664/detail.html?rss=day&psp=news

This is so horrible and sad what this man did to both of these women. This so so evil and I hope he spends a life sentence in jail.

I really think that life would be too lenient for this guy, Shaun.

It has been said that he was just released from prison. You know what, from that idea there, it just shows us that there are people who don't deserve to leave prison, why was he freed in the first place? obviously, he's not fit in the society which gave him a second chance. It's really sad. But, I was just wondering, if they had to walk to the home of the mother, didn't anyone ever see them approaching the house like that? tsk tsk. really is sad

I don't know how they managed to escape being noticed by someone, laydee, except that it was in the morning-a time when most people are at work. The laws should be changed regarding release of offenders back into society. I hope that someday they will.

This is really disgusting.. and one thing friend.. i could say.. crimes of this often surface at different points on the earth, because the sinners strongly believe they can escape the clutches of law. Corruption has grown to such a level that it can't be uprooted from the society. This man in the story will be put behind the bars.. but will find convenient loop holes in law to escape from any kind of serious punishments.

Let us hope, saivenkaat, that that does not happen. You are right about criminals thinking they will never get caught. They believe that they are smarter than the law, but it turns out the other way most of the time. We live in an era when virtually everything you do is witnessed by someone.

This man, right along with all the rest of his kind needs to take up residence in the ground or in an urn. An urn would take up less space. I don't believe there is any help for these people. They are evil and they need to be exterminated.

I'm pretty sure, SusanLee, that he will get a good idea of what He11 is once he is returned to prison.

It seems that the world is going to hell in a handbasket, these disgusting acts are becoming more and more frequent as the years go by and the sad part is that alot of these animals get away with these acts of cowardice, it was good that the guy got caught in this instance but too many times they also get away with legal technicalities, in my country it seems that the entire justice system needs revamping from top to bottom because we have had more than our fair share of horrors over the last couple of years with increasing intensity and violence, is there any safe place?

Sorry, gerard, but I don't know of any place that is safe. The lawmakers should be taken to task when it comes to making laws that guarantee the criminals will get the stiffest penalties.

I could never imagine and hope that I never have to find out what it would be like to be in that situation. The story said that he just got out of prison for burglary. I hope that this time he gets to visit prison for a very long time. I would say what I truly feel that they should do to him, but many would feel that it is inhumane.

If your punishment is what I am thinking, jer, it would be more humane than what he did to those poor women!

Oh my goodness, this is so sad and disguisting. It is so terrible, we live in a world where there are so many sick and evil people...ugh. I feel so bad for this woman and her child. I hope that this evil person is prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I am sure he will get his when he is in prison. When other inmates find out what he did and that it involved a child they won't be happy with him and he will not be safe. It just shocks me that someone could do something like this..ugh..so sad.

The article states that the daughter is 18, nelly, but that does not make the act any more acceptable. It also noted that he was recently released from prison.

I think they should hang him. This is horrible. We should not even waste out tax dollars on someone like that.

What a sad story...Truly disgusting..I can just imagine how painful it was for the mother to watched and witnessed her daughter being raped and she can't do anything on it...He deserved to be in jail for the rest of his life!
