    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. 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. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

Pervert Alley: Will Hayden raped 2 preteen girls over two decades; Sentenced to LWOP plus 40 years

Will Hayden, who was on Suns of Guns on the Discovery Channel, is a rapist. A child rapist at that. Disgusting. Doesn’t matter what else he did in his life, he is a child rapist. He took away the innocence of 2 young girls, that will haunt them the rest of their lives. Their lives have changed before they had a chance to start it. It will not be an easy road for either of them, but hopefully they will get the help that they need to deal with this. As for him, he will spend the rest of his life in prison. He is 51 years old, so he should be spending a long time there. I personally hope so. And since he is now a sex offender that raped children, I hope he remembers that every single day he is there. Maybe there are others there that can help remind him, too. It does not appear that he has admitted to anything yet, so I am sure he feels he is a martyr, but he is not. He.is.a.RAPIST. Forever.
