Regarding the news story about Nathanael Sloop's hearing (March 28, "Abuse details emerge"), at 62 years of age, I've raised eight wonderful children. The oldest is now 44 and the youngest is 6. I tried to raise them to not believe in "monsters" (the loops are the worse) and not be afraid of the dark. After reading the headlines about Ethan I went to the bathroom and vomited. I also changed my mind about teaching my children.
Monsters such as those two exist every day. It's a shame we can't just exterminate them. This case doesn't even deserve a trial. I sure hope the Sloops read this. The best thing they can do at this point is hang themselves. Although this is too good for them, they can be glad I'm not the jury looking at them. I would order that they be beaten for at least six months while at the same time, have their genitals removed without any sort of pain relief just before I threw them in scalding hot water as I was removing their jaws with a sledge hammer. Then I'd pour some gas on them while my wife shoved feces down their throats. Just before I struck a match, I'd work on smashing the rest of your face in. After that, I would put the them in plastic bags and throw them out with the rest of the trash----probably in someone else's trash because I wouldn't want any of their monstrous remains anywhere near me or my family.
And Sloop did this "all because he wanted to get laid more." I certainly hope they both get the death penalty and it is executed very soon.
