    There is NO EXCUSE for Raping and hurting people. Even if the women did not make a better judgement call for their action, that man had NO RIGHT to put his hands on them at all! So it is only HIS FAULT, and I don't want the women to feel that they deserved it because they got into his truck. We just need to stop trusting strangers, as we were taught in elementary school. I am pretty much sure that even if he was to get rape in jail, it would not affect him, because he apparently already has a cold heart, and he wanted to get caught. I will say this, this situation has opened my eyes more to be more aware of my surroundings.

    It WAS unwise to get in the truck with a stranger. HOWEVER,..How can anyone blame the victim of a sex crime?? I can't believe that type of thinking still exist. If he's guilty, he'll get what's coming to him. No doubt about that. Those women are NOT to blame for being sexually assaulted.... Please stop pouring salt in wounds they do not deserve.

    He will see what it feels like to be raped while he's in jail. I hope they make him miserable while he's in there.
