Despite what people think, rape is an act of violence and anger not a sexual loving desire. IF he is guilty, he needs to get help, so it doesn't happen again.

That is one angry acting and looking immigrant...an immigrant who became succesful, but then chooses to use his rage against others in the rape of innocent girls, hoping for a chance too. he is among life and humanities worst kind, because he works off of trust and belief and safety----what a miserable creature he is. I imagine he is mad at his mommy and every sister and female teacher he ever had for reasons known only to him.

He should have gone gay and left his hatred for women in his country of origin instead of bringing it with him here. He's the type of immigrant that continually gives this country a bad name. Hurting innocent unsuspecting young women.

I want this man to suffer and suffer immeasurbly for the remainder of his life for his deeds. It is the only way.

And Simon Cowell and Nigel they too must suffer for looking the other way on their employees abuse of power.

You can know a person and "NOT" really know too much of their dark side. If this is true, he need to be prosecuted.

Oh Ok Nicoco, #40 so what you're saying is the Police are just taking what any person off the street might say about a person and throwing them in jail with a bond amount so high, it cannot be met----and also an amount that is usually reserved for murderers or multiple offenders?

The guys a nice guy and good looking and was always friendly in public, so you know there is no way he could ever do such a henious thing. Ted Bundy was a trained lawyer and good looking and a heck of a nice guy too. No one, not even those closest to him saw the part of him that came out when he not only raped women but murdered them.

Alex may not be a Bundy, but the Cops probably have enough evidence along with a Judge who had to set the Bond to say "we got something here"----otherwise, what you're saying is the Cops and Justice system of our Country can just arrest and charge and set unreasonable bail on anyone they feel like...

Sounds more like the Country Alex left than the one he came to and found success.

I hope he's not guilty of these things, but I am not of the mindset the Police and Justice system go after Hollywood types for the mere fun of it....if they do, then we're all living in the wrong country and I suggest you tell us which one to flee to to escape such persecution.
