Hey. Here's a novel idea. Why don't all you brave cowards hiding behind "Alias's" ,saying nasty comments, come out from under your rocks and let us know who you truly are! You seem to be comfortable spewing your venom behind some phony name. So I dare you to let all of us know who you really are. Maybe the family and friends of the accused would like to meet you!
