Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS.

  1. Why isn’t this piece of shit animal six feet under ? Every day this useless scum breaths air, is an insult to the child it raped and slaughterd.

    • I totally agree with u. I just watched it on FBI criminal pursuit ughh its sickening that he is still alive

  2. I missed this one but recorded it, after reading this i was hoping for a better result. 😦

  3. The execution of Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, who admitted to the kidnap, rape and murder of 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce, is scheduled for the evening of February 12, according to the order signed by Scott on Thursday.

    The search for Jimmy, who was kidnapped at gunpoint as he got off his school bus, drew national attention and helped bring changes to sexual predators laws, increasing public awareness and involvement in finding missing children.

    In 1998, Florida lawmakers unanimously passed the Jimmy Ryce Act, which subjects convicted sex offenders to the possibility of indefinite civil commitment after they have completed their prison terms.

    “May his soul rot in hell and his name be forgotten by all of mankind”
