    I hope the SOB is laying dead in a ditch somewhere. He is a disgrace to the AF uniform and he is a predator to young children. He actually has friends? Better check their computers too, because if they are friends they are not people that you want to know.

      FYI George Francis, this is not the David Helm we knew when he was here at Wright-Patt. We (friends & family) are beyond shocked of the charges and cannot comprehend that he would do those things.
