    Sure, there is plenty of "racism" around here, but it's not just directed toward hispanics. Whites around here get too, especially from the government.

    19 yr old is not a kid,unless the mind is not normal?According to the law 12 yrs old is a kid ?I don't know either,According to my upbringing it is not normal,wrong, for this kind of acts to take place.When I know of people whom it has been proven true to have backgrounds of such acts .I STAY CLEAR OF ALL .Cause the ole saying:Birds of the same feathers stick together.This ole bird ain't got feathers like that.

    I notice everyone is attacking the NINETEEN year old KID. Notice the charges are second degree, she was a willing player. Still against the law, but not like he stalked her down and forced her. Quit reading and focusing on the word rape. Way over used in this one. And let us not forget the home enviorment and up bringing of each of these kids. Not saying what he did is right, just saying he is most likely not the rabid pervert Y'all are making him out to be. But he will be punished the rest of his life for thinking with the little head.

    My comment was referring to one that has been deleted; one that instantly assumed that the POS was illegal.

    Wait. I'm not trying to defend this man. If he did what he is accused of, then he deserves to rot in a very hot place. But let's be real. Who said he was illegal? Am I missing part of the story? Let's not jump to conclusions just because he has a Hispanic name. Making conclusions about someone based on how their name sounds or the color of their skin is, gosh, racism, but we don't have any of that around here, do we?
