    In my opinion, if found guilty, subhumans like this pair have forfeited their right to be alive. Just take them out immediately.

  • No Mercy for the mercy-less

    if guilty, they should be put in an old fashion stockade in the center of town and left there.
    justice will b server and a load and clear warning will be sent to would be child abusers.
    If they service the stockade he should have his Johnson removed and she should be sterilized so neither can create helpless victims again EVER.

    Firing squad is too good for these walking POS.
    I make no apologies, don’t care if its not PC.
    Know why this crap is on the rise? because 100 years ago child abuserss were dealt with without mercy and the would be abusers knew their fate if caught.

    Karol has a twin. Hopefully, the public doesn’t dole it’s justice out on the wrong one in case they see her twin around town.
