is ATS and the members have a beef with illegal immigration.

well undoubtedly it means a lot to the cops
else they wouldn't be trying to find out his
immigration status. And it means something
to some folks else it wouldn't have been
put in the online article. So there is more
concern here than JUST the family's
outlook. Your post trivializes the crime
and it's root cause based solely on how
the family sees it, not how society sees
it. And they are looking very hard as there
are many more potential victims out there.

That's exactly what I'm saying. They are thinking of their LITTLE GIRL, not stupid political issues.

As for speaking for the family, are you the only one allowed to in this conversation?


you are missing my point. you are using a hypothetical "family" to support an argument that i already proved false. now you are continuing to use it to confuse the issue and call certain issues "stupid". as you so eloquently said.

you cannot use fiction to supercede reality and expect to be taken seriously. obviously there are some issues with people ganging up on other people here.

Sigh. You didn't read the whole thread to see where I was coming from before you posted, did you... sorry, maybe we cross-posted or something... in any case, it's frustrating to not be understood.

again, we're having the problem distinguishing the difference between fact and fiction.

your statement that you just made is fiction.

the little girl that got raped by an illega is fact.

we see what you choose to support.


The statement I made was an adaptation of the one that was made by saying that if the immigration laws were enforced that it would not have happened.

It was stated that the legal status of the criminal was irrelevant and did not make the crime any less horrendous. I agree and offered my little piece of fiction to illustrate that.

That is NOT a fact! His immigration status is UNKNOWN. He has been ACCUSED of raping her. Where is your common sense?

Are you saying that it hasn't even been determined that the guy is even illegal yet? And we're arguing over nothing at this point then.

No, I would NEVER trivialize rape. I have 2 teenage daughters. I AM trivializing the outrage of those that are linking 2 issues together that have no merit being together. Well, it's an issue for those that have a beef about illegal immigration. Then yes, I am trivializing it for you. I don't care about "society" when it comes to the kids. They come first. Not inane politics.

Ok, I give up. This thread is obviously going to fast for people to read and comprehend responses to each other. I'm frustrated because I really want to be understood in this but it's apparently not gonna happen. I'm out... see ya later on other threads.

The background of a rapist will always have some kind of impact on the victim's healing process. That's a given.

However would that emphasis be greater than if the rapist was from a wealthy, well-to-do family who had the resources to potentially get off the hook? I think not.

The victim and her family will always carry the burden of animosity towards the rapist on their shoulders regardless of their personal backgrounds. It wouldn't matter whether or not if the rapist was a legal citizen or not. The animosity for the person as a whole will be there.


maria, there is a very important assumption that you are making here. you are assuming that people would "burn at the stake" any illegal because of this case.

let's assume that there is a certain percentage of people in existence that your statment applies to. let's assume those people are racist (i'm sure that's what your'e getting at). after making these assumptions why would it be relevant to classify everyone associated with this discussion as being that type of person? why would you assume that we are not capable of thinking for ourselves and why would you engage in discussion with people that were not capable of doing so?

lets use some Logic here.

Rape is a crime.
Entering the US without Permision is a Crime.

If the person never entered the US the Rape would not have happen.

( this is under the assumption that the suspect is here illegally )

Because the OP made the statement that if the immigration laws were enforced this would not have happened.

No race card here, just a second line.

Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted.


Every two minutes.



The Criminal

* The average age of a rapist is 31 years old.
* 52% are white.


Most rapists are white men... Hmmm... I guess we should lock up or execute all the white men and avoid over half of the rapes, eh? That's the logic some are using in this thread.

we are not arguing, we are discussing

and true his immigration status has not been
authenticated at present. Therefore the word
"accused"was used.



I AM trivializing the outrage of those that are linking 2 issues together that have no merit being together. Well, it's an issue for those that have a beef about illegal immigration. Then yes, I am trivializing it for you. I don't care about "society" when it comes to the kids. They come first. Not inane politics.


The 2 issues were put together in the article as
both were mentioned in print. So we cannot
discuss the article without discussing both aspects
of the article.

Well you should think about society as what is
IN that society can harm your children.
And this is NOT about politics but about
laws being broken and one law is prosecuted
(rape) and the other law (illegal immigration)
is not.

The victim got the worse end of that deal
don't you agree ???

What did you "win"? Did you turn the clock back and this child wasn't raped? Now THAT would be a "win". This isn't a contest and anyone that puts forth anything irrelevant cares not for the child.

oh and one other thing. aside from him not having any ID on him and refusing to ID himself the only UNKNOWN status to his citizenship would be because he isn't from the USA.

There's plenty in our society that can hurt our children. Drugs for one but that doesn't have the hitting power of "illegal immigration."



And this is NOT about politics but about
laws being broken and one law is prosecuted
(rape) and the other law (illegal immigration)
is not.


As you pointed out, we don't know if the II laws were broken.

Oh hell yeah and that is my focus. The child.

i agree that it's not a contest. but if you can't agree that these debates are important then why are you here? if you think this is all meaningless banter then maybe you shouldn't participate.

He could be a citizen but have some outstanding warrants. He doesn't seem to be an angel after all.

another logical falacy (putting that kindly) and of course the RACE CARD! yay it's the race card that means they lose. you give, we win. you're out of moves the race card was played.

see what i mean, it's all white people's fault right?
