    NC-Marine sexually abuses 12yr old he met online

    http://myfox8.com/2012/05/10/nc-mari...he-met-online/

    A U.S. Marine accused of raping a 12-year-old girl he allegedly met online was arrested Wednesday in Fayetteville.

    Sergeant Brandon Bowman, 27, was charged at Fort Bragg where he took part in training. Bowman is currently stationed in Huntingdon, England.

    He is charged with first-degree rape of a child, two counts of first-degree sex offense with a child, and indecent liberties with a child.

    Bowman received a $2,002,500 secured bond and has court planned for Thursday.

    What is going on??. ......... .Is the world getting ready to end??
    People are going absolutely nuts!!!

    I guess Marine Sergeant Brandon Bowman age 27, was not even considering the consequences of his actions ...
    he was just looking forward to the benefits !!!

    And where were the parents of the 12 yr-old girl that rode her bike to meet him in the woods?


    Same ugly song, another verse!

    It seems like every other day we're hearing about North Carolina spousal homicides and murders commited by military personnel [Deliverance?] ... murders like that seem disproportionately high in NC.

    I'd say FL beats NC, but it's a close 2nd.

    Multiple factors could be causing this:

    1.Military bases: There are 8 military bases in NC, that is alot for a state that size. The military is an attractive career for certain people (both my parents served with some people who could be described as sociopathic (obsessed with firearms/killing, didn't care about others, etc.), one of their friends even became a mercenary in South Africa.) and also most recruits are males between the ages of 17-25, when hormones run high.

    2. Poverty: NC has a high rate of poverty. High poverty/low income areas are well known for being places with high crime (theft, murder, rape, etc) and low LE presence. I've lived in bad neighborhoods in Kileen, TX and Lawton, OK, so I've seen how bad it can get. Also, people tend to get a "us vs. them" mentality about LE.

    3. Drugs/Alcohol: Poverty (economy isn't helping) is a reason alot of people turn to drugs/alcohol. Sometimes people view drugs as a way to escape from their lives, but after awhile (as we all know) it gets out of hand and they start a downhill slide. People then turn to theft/burglery/assault as a way to get money to continue their habit.

    4. Gangs: Bloods,Crips, and other gangs are heavily active in NC. For your reading pleasure:http://www.ncgangcops.org/NCGangAwareness.pdf

    A reminder of what he did:

    Police said they got a tip about suspicious activity with a child on Shortridge Road on April 29.

    When they arrived, police said they saw the girl emerging from a wooded area on a bicycle. Bowman was also there, police said.

    Police said an investigation found Bowman met the alleged victim online and arranged to meet her where officers found them.

    He lured a 12 year old child into the woods, and then raped her. And now he's free.

    What is your source of information on what happened, exactly? Why do you think he lured her? Why do you think he's "Free" ... he's on parole as a felony sex offender, his life is forever changed.

    I doubt this will be the last we hear of this pervert. They don't change.

    Well, he convinced a 12 year old to go to the woods to meet him (luring), where he had sex with her (rape). Sex with a 12 year old is rape. What do you call it? A May-December romance? SMH

    And since he's freely walking outside prison walls, he's considered "free." Are we to feel bad for the guy? Ummmmm, no!!! He's an adult. He raped a child. Ethical, moral people feel bad for the victim, not the perpetrator. I would recommend checking yourself.

    His life his changed forever thanks to his own choices. His victims' lives are changed forever for the same reason.

    Detroit is no picnic either. We have the second most death a year, the DOJ just fished 11 years of fixing the LE, and the solve rate is at like 47%.
