Joseph, congratulations on being a huge Douchebag, your family must be very proud. This poor girl was almost killed and sexually molested simply because she was walking in her neighborhood, and you have the gall to say she was looking for attention!? Hmm...you know, it almost sounds like you could be a closeted rapist. Next time you want to comment on something, do us all a favor and just shut your cake hole, or better yet, your anus because all you do is talk out of your ass.

This is really amazing. Here is a link to a video about the attack on FOX news: http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/local/fairfax-police-investigating-sexual-assault-in-burke-031512 Check this out - the man they interviewed in the video who lives at 5102 Pommeroy - Michael John Cosgrove - get this - IS a known sexual offender. LIterally he lives across the street from the site of the attack. According to the Virginia sex offender site, he is a Child Porn collector. Can you believe they even got a clip of him saying, "You have to really watch your neighbors." ? Unbelievable.

Funny that FOX News didn't check that. But keep in mind there are a lot of convicted sex offenders... even in KPW. Here's a link to a map: http://sex-offender.vsp.virginia.gov/sor/mapViewSearchResults.html?search.type=com.vsp.sor.pub.web.action.ZipSearchAction1332267736364&zipSearchCriteria.excludeIncarcerated=on&orderType=asc&zipSearchCriteria.offenderFilterType=1&zipSearchCriteria.zip=22032 Another thing to keep in mind... the VA Sex Offender Registry isn't very accurate.

And another quick note: Just because there are convicted sex offenders living in your neighborhood doesn't mean the suspect is one of them.

The man in the video doesn't match the picture of Michael Cosgrove that they have on the sex offender site though........
