BoxOfBees: [...] we are going to be dropping off our retarded children at the abortion clinic just to prevent them from bearing Satan's spawn.
jackrazz: For everyone here pulling th einternet tough guy act about how this defendnat should be beaten down, shot, etc., I'll ask you the same question that was ignored in a Facebook thread about this case: why are you so sure that the defendant is guilty?Is it because he was accused? That's an EXTREMELY low burden of proof you've got there.Is it because a mentally handicapped individual did the accusing? I have a client in jail right now awaiting a competency evaluation with an IQ of approximately 62 (SEVERE Down's Syndrom) who accused another inmate of raping him. The problem is, there's no forensic evidence, and nothing that shows any interaction between my client and the accused inmate on any of the multiple cameras all over the jail. Now, I'm not dumb enough to beleive that thtere aren't dark areas where the cameras can't reach, but we're down to a he-said, she-said situation, just like in this case.We have a rule of law to prevent mob mentality just like this. The Defendant received a fair trial, and was found to be not guilty on one of the three charges filed. While the jury DID find him guilty of the other two charges, the State failed to properly establish each of the essential elements as required by law, and the appellate courts overturned the conviction. The ONLY blame in this case should be placed on the prosecutor for not doing his job.
T-Boy: Dating the mom and thought he would get some action from the mute retarded kid. As a parent of a child with CP who communicates with gestures, this ruling is dead wrong. As an attorney who has seen judges do stupid things, this isma really stupid thing.
Gordian Shoelaces: Sounds like Missouri GOP politicians have been coaching Connecticut on which rapes are legitimate.
ciberido: tomcatadam: There's got to be something more to this. Did the state really fark up the case that bad?That's a very healthy first reaction to a Daily Mail article.

robohobo: ypsifly: Yeah if only the mentally/physically disabled would vote and pay taxes instead of living off of the social teat, they might get better representation in the courts and legislatures./ Sarcasm off....Whoawhoawhoa, who wants them to vote?
