Couey Admits To Killing Jessica

Jessica Marie Lunsford has been reported to have been killed by her abductor John Evander Couey. Couey confessed to FBI investigators after completing a polygraph test. He told the examiner that he didn't need to know the results of the test because he already knew. Then he asked for the investigators to return. He apologized to the FBI investigators for wasting their time. What nerve.
What are we going to do about this? These sex offenders are getting out of prison with a requirement to be registered with authorities. If they should happen to move, they have up to 48 hours before they are required to report the move. Is it just me, or is there something wrong with this? It seems to me to be more prudent to required them to report in before they move and provide the information of where they are moving from and where they are moving to. And new sentencing guidelines need to be adopted. It seems to me that they need to be a little stronger. Crimes against children need to be as seriously punished as murder. I'm not totally against considering capital punishment in cases involving child predators. But one thing is certain, something needs to be done to protect our children from being harmed.
And finally, I'd like to express my sympathy to the family of Jessica. You have lost the most precious gift that our God can bestow upon us. She has been taken from you and nothing can replace her. We can only hope, that the justice system will deal with this monster as he should be dealt with. And we can try to put pressure on our lawmakers to pass laws to better track these monsters. I consider what has happened to your family as something that could have and should have been prevented.

We don't need more laws to deal with these scum save one....make it a law that they go straight into the general population and let people know what they did.

Problem solved.

Just heard this. So sad. Such a pretty little girl. My wife was just stating that all sex offenders should be segregated onto some farm away from all civilization. Isolate them.

The other sad thing about this is now this "piece of trash" will sit on death row for 15-20 years and cost tax payers thousands to house and care for him in jail awaiting death. He should fry NOW! and Mark Lundsford should have a front row seat.God Bless Jessica another beautiful angel above.

There is a website Jessica's Site where you can leave messages for the family on a forum. I urge everyone to visit the site, tell Mark how you feel about this. He is asking the we help him in his efforts to see that these monsters can't harm any more children.
