Hollowpoints are an instant cure for pedophilia 👍

Thank you for working hard for accountability. With each arrest it's a message that hurting children will not be tolerated in this county. We appreciate all your effort.

Hope he gets everything he deserves an he will as soon as word gets out where he is held

I have heard that the big house repays people with the same thing let's pray

The man is broken. He can't be fixed.

Hope he gets some jail house justice

This was our nightmare

Sad thing is he will get out on bond, just like that piece of shit walter jenkins. Makes me sick to my stomach. Nice place in HELL FOR these worthless pieces of shit!!!!

Chris Chan update please.

Throw away the Key never let him out

Robert G. Jones Aka Bo Will be arraigned on May 31, 2022 Criminal Court 9 am

Too bad yall don't care about kids who are disabled. Ben Durrer is still walking the streets and he raped a child.

His defense attorney will argue the “victim” slipped and good old Mr. “Bo” Jones tried to catch her fall. He will have a dozen character witnesses testify the church-going “Bo” is a good God-fearing man who would never hurt a child…it’s all just an innocent misunderstanding.

Until justice for the victim(s) becomes the priority of our criminal justice system this evil will continue to be prevalent in our society. Thinking that predators like rapists and murderers can be rehabilitated is not living in the world as it really exists. Sexual abuse of children, the elderly, and murder should all carry the same ultimate penalty.

Lock em up! Great job Greene County's Sheriff's.

Neuter this asshole make him pay

Nice! Next maybe you'll put my daughters rapist in jail! I doubt it though because she is disabled and he is in the Greene county sheriff's department family.

Sick, sick,sick!

Chomo

POS

Castrate the SOB

That's funny cuz yall won't even give me proof that my child's rapist isn't a rapist. You didn't even ask him to recall the whole day of Feb. 27th 2021, the day sexual assault was put on her medical record when I brought her to the ER and ingeries were found by UVA Hospital in a forensic exam. Not all victims have the same rights I guess.

I understand you can't convict someone with out enough evidence. So if there was not enough evidence then show the victims. Don't just call them and say "He won't be charged with anything. "

No justice has been served for my 12 year old daughter. Since she is disabled she doesn't count or something?

Justice for jasmine! Ben durrer is a child rapist what about jasmine rights? Greene County just brushed it under the rug.

I have like 10 Dr's here and in VA that can testify that it diffinitly says sexual assault on Jasmine's medical record and has evidence of it so just can someone explain that to me?

Why are “farm use” vehicles allowed out on roads. Serious question. Would love to know this secret to avoiding paying fees and taxes.

I feel like this is a start to a country song.

Bloodhound & a good handler could have trailed the person.

Don't hate the farmer hate the people that miss use the tags.

Looks like something from wrong turn lol…. I’d say abort mission lol!

Run the VIN number, should reveal the owner

All this for a traffic stop or is there more to this?

FARM USE plates strike again

Cars trucks ride up and down roads All the time with farm use tags nothing is done about it look on Chapman Rd were the snitch’s live y’all know

Ain’t this the jeepers creepers truck

We all jump to saying ugly things when we see things like this it is our natural instincts but there is always two sides to a story so we all must watch what we say because this guy has family who is very hurt and devastated over this. I completely understand that right is right and wrong is wrong but before we judge we should have all the facts in our hands please try to remember when you say ugly you are hurting other people so please think before you speak.

What happened to innocent until proven guilty

Heartbreaking and to close to home. Hope they find his ass ASAP.

Let's find this person.. Get him off STREETS before he HARMS someone else...

Sick you getting along time in prison
