    I totally agree with everything said. My niece is doing well and moving on day by day. She is a beautiful little girl who enjoys life and has a contagious laugh. I hope she can one day forget the horror and sleep alone knowing she is safe. This perpetrator IS an illegal who has already been kicked out of this country. Why are we allowing them to come in this counrty and hurt our babies...How did he get back in?? Who knows how many young girls he has attacked.... My question???? WHAT WAS HER MOTHER THINKING????

    I am a firm believer in an eye for an eye. I hope that Morales is locked up in a cell with someone who will do to him exactly what he did to that precious little girl. If we gave the perpetrators the same treatment that they give their victims, I believe that would be a deterrant for some....AN EYE FOR AN EYE!!!

    Is this Hispanic an illegal alien? I've noticed our local leaders won't even acknowledge we have an illegal alien problem in the Wiregrass. Too weak and politically correct to admit it let alone do anything about it. Our local leaders would perfer to see their citizens murdered then do the right thing and arrest illegal aliens. They could learn a lesson from two real leaders ie. Seriff Arpaio in Arizona and the mayor of Hazelton PA.

    Castrate these sick men so they will never be able to do these horrible things to a child again. There are very sick people all around us. We need to enforce the laws about child abusers. My prayers are for the little girl and her family. I the pain the entire family goes through from the child being abused.

    Start writing your congressmen and the President and all elected officials Demand that they start Enforcing the Immigration Laws and Secure the boarders. That may not Stop this and many other crimes but at least it is a step in the right direction.

    My heart bleeds for that little girl. I just have to pray that God has his hand on her right now, and that she will get alot of love and nurturing to help her heal. As for Mr. Morales I hope that your cell mate is far more merciful to you than you were to that little girl. Jesus loves the little children.
