  1. What’s next for this jerk … The Today Show ?? He needs to stay locked up AND the news media needs to stop portraying the ass hole as some kind of poor soul who needs help … I am sorry if his mommy didn’t breast feed him, and his parents hate him, and his life is in shambles, but to kidnap a child to get attention ??

    All the news media does when they have “exclusive” jailhouse interviews (the Contra Costa Times did it recently) with this jerk is taint a potential jury pool, and his attorneys will put on some stupid charade that he possibly cannot get a “fair trial” in Contra Costa County, thereby dragging this matter on for years, and putting the child victim along with her family through nothing but grief ……..

    There should be only one or two sentences in the news about this moron …. “David Douglas had criminal charges filed against him today, and his bail is set at $7,150,000” — Nothing more than that …. NOT his picture looking all sad and concerned consulting with his attorney as appears in the Contra Costa Times.

  2. He should held with NO bail. I hope he rots in hell where he belongs. God bless that little girl and I pray for her recovery from such an atrocious act.

  3. I dont care how high his bail is…why the F does he even have one…I hope they get a hold of him in there!
