I make and have made no claims as to what victims feel.  I stand by my 
position that murders, particularly those by a serial killer, are worse than 
molestation.  In no way am I trying to diminish the latter; however, I think 
it's absurd to pretend they're the same.  They're not, which is why the law 
does not treat them the same way.

>and 203,900 children were the victims of family abductions."
>THAT is a hell of a lot of kids missing and hurt.  You want to tell them or

>The fact that someone would say "you'll get over it - it was only

>In ref to Coe, he ASKED/PETITIONED/BEGGED the court to allow him to be
