My thing is, this man was convicted of the raping of two children 21 years ago, why is he back on the street? Being a parent myself this is extremely difficult to swallow let alone hearing about the 1991 rape. We really have to question whether or not jail is a place of reform, a holding cell like timeout in elementary school, or does it make matters worse for certain convicts. Sending out prayers to the families affected by this tragedy.
