It's strange this story hasn't hit the blogs and cable news.

Sorry folks, I didn't have to--take liberties--with my posts ( unless reporting what is in a news article is considered--taking liberties.
Was posting a link to that story that hard to do? It just makes your post more credible when you post links to articles you are talking about.

Here's another link to the second story:

Bail set at $500,000 for man accused of assault on trail | sctimes.com | St. Cloud Times

This article says he might be illegal.

This is the liberty I was referring to, (it is described in the second article) you insinuated that he didn't understand her when she was crying "No!", because he doesn't understand English, I previously pointed out that "no" means the same thing in English and Spanish, and we are assuming he speaks Spanish (I would think he does). FWIW, there are other languages besides Spanish spoken in Guatemala.

He knew exactly what he was doing (the rape), I don't doubt that for one minute. And I'm sure he knew what he did is wrong and is against the law. Due process will take care of him.

Perhaps next time you quote from a current event, a link (or two) would suffice?

point taken .

However, the mistakes of poster marmac pale in comparison to the crime committed by this man.

David, perhaps you should censor every post and say only links are allowed and nothing should be posted besides cuz a link is sufficent and nothing more should be posted on the subject.

I appeared to have hit a nerve with you about this ILLEGAL.

Yes, I used the word --illegal-- cuz according to the paper, his own lawyer hinted he was--illegal.

The accused told his lawyer if ICE does not have a hold on him already,they soon will.

I'm not censoring you, I'm not a moderator.

When you bring up a current event it would be nice if you linked an article, that way we don't discuss hearsay, unless your intention is to discuss hearsay. It would be nice to discuss independently verified facts, as opposed to a slightly exaggerated form of the facts.

You haven't hit a nerve with me at all with THIS ILLEGAL. I don't know the guy, so why should I give two hoots about him? He raped a young girl, and deserves to have the book thrown at him.

I have no problem with the word "illegal". I refer to "illegal immigrants" as "illegal immigrants". I don't refer to them as "aliens" or "third world scum" as some others do, "illegal immigrants" suffices.

I used the word "illegal" as well.

So was the purpose of this thread to go on an illegal-bashing spree free from dispute of the facts?

Was the purpose of your most recent post an excuse to start a flamewar with me and paint me as an illegal-lover?

Come on now.

The story did generate 58 posts the first day it appeared and 66 posts the 2nd time the story about his bail was announced.
