  • IF he is guilty as described, I always wonder what happened to a guy like that. Looks relatively normal; not all drugged out. If not that, nor mental illness, then what? Is there a study of this type offenders? Does it go back to the parents or community of origin? Or are there just people predisposed to have values that are skewed from those of the larger society? And can his ‘type’ be rehabilitated? What are the statistics on that? And what methods are most successful? Group work? EMDR? Tough love? Am guessing that the penal system will generally not help them.

  • He don’t look like a druggie ,and he don’t look to upset in is mug shot. The pictures are getting better .he probably likes it in there .

  • Don’t judge a book by its cover.
