  • If he’s an “Extremely dangerous, violent sex offender” who may be suicidal, why was he placed on house arrest and not put in prison? Makes no sense.

    Tuesday, 15 December 2015, 11:45 am
  • I agree chewy why do they keep letting them out , You probably get more time for a drug offense than this piece of crap, Personally I hope he does kill himself or an alligator or bear eats him. Those electronic devices don’t seem to work so well, Catch him before he ruins someone else’s life!!
