Brad is a good, God fearing person. He would never do the things he is being accused of. This is another case of someone stirred the pot & pissed some people off & good ole McCurtain County retaliated. You can't make waves with the officials in that county without repercussions. He will be dragged through the mud & his life will be ruined and in the end, the charges will be dropped-just in time for him to avoid prison time, but entirely too late to salvage his reputation, his job, and his life. If you look at this history of this type of case in this county, you will see that it happens often. Just when a person points their finger & accuses a prominent person (Billy Conway, Roger Deen, Brian Driesel, judge driesel's youngest son), that person suddenly finds themselves being accused of some horrible crime, and facing possible prison time if they don't agree to go with the game. Brad will come through this. And he will be a stronger person for it. Prayers go out to him and his family. The truth will come out and all of you who believe everything you read will hopefully realize just how backward people are in that town.

what the hell ever he is a fuckin monster who will get his in the end either way...if you seriously believe this man is innocent i acutally feel sorry for you when your bubble is burst....did you not read the article????....if he isn't guilty then why would he have all that porn and extasy and ruffies????...does that really sound like an innocent man to you??...it's understandable that since you know him you have a personal interest in his innocence but you need to step back and take an un-biased look at the situation and realize he is a sick fuck who deserves every bit of what is comin his way....how in the hell could you be considering his feelings over the feelings and TRAMA of his victims?????????? do you have any idea how much they have already mentally suffered not to mention the fact that they get to live with this the rest of their lives trying to figure out what they did to deserve this and why them, they are too young to understand he is just a near middle-aged pervert that couldn't get play from anyone his age male or female and starting drugging kids to get his jolies

I am not shocked in the least by these allegations. I have long suspected that Brad was "grooming" his vocal students for more than just singing. The warning signs have been there for years. And he has lived in an atmosphere that I won't say encouraged his behaviors but definitely enabled them. He has always thought that his musical talent gave him special license and no one in his life has acted as any kid of voice of reason. This sense of entitlement and his homosexual tendencies along with his "therapist" job, private voice lessons, and photography business was just a breeding ground for something like this to happen. My greatest fear is that he will get off on some medical or psychological technicality. I too feel for his victims & I feel that what has come out is only the tip of the iceberg.

Are we really to assume that this whole story is fiction brought about by prominent people in the county who are only slinging mud in order to prevent the skeletons in their own closets from seeing the light of day??? That's quite an elaborate plan for some simple boys from a backwards county, don't you think? I believe it would all be much easier to abduct the alleged perv and have the community believe that the poor soul went a fishin' and the gators got him! Let's e honest here...We as concerned citizens have no real proof in hand to hang him high for his crimes, but in this here part of the country many folks will protect what is theirs by any means possible. I pray that justice is served fairly and swiftly in this case. Otherwise, the gators in Little River will have a feast.

This type of thing happens in the big cities but when it happened in McCurtain County it made me sick!!!! If your an adult and have a choice about your sexual preference that's your business but when you bring kids into the equation that's what makes me sick!!!! I feel for the families of the all and the youth that will suffer in this and fear for the ones that may not come forward with anything they have to say because they maybe too proud too. I know there are lots of things going around about this and not sure what is true and what isn't but even if 1/10th of this is true it is enough in my book for him to spend lots of time by himself or with others that will violate him. I know that we live in a tough and rough county but there are a lot of good people in McCurtain county and we will still be here long after all the drug dealers, child molesters, murderers, and thieves. GOD does know what happened and HE will take care of the problem. It's not only the one named above that was involved and some of those names have been released already. There are so many thoughts that I have about all the new things that I've heard and please, for the sake of the fair trial so that nothing goes wrong with a convection if necessary, keep your comments about things that have not been publicized to yourselves.

To the "Brad Supporters" - I have some direct questions to ask of you. If these accusations were coming from your own child's mouth, would you believe your child? Would you still sing the same tune and call your own child a liar, saying this is all a set up against Brad? Or is it only okay to throw children under the bus when they belong to someone else? In 5 minutes, if Brad calls you up and asks to babysit or mentor your child after knowing all of the items that were seized from his home, and your child said, "but mom/dad, this is what he's done to me..." would you tell your child they better hush w/ that nonsense, then send your child to his house? Are you honestly THAT confident he is innocent? Do you not find it at all odd he spent so much time alone with underage males that it allowed such allegations to come forth? Because these are children you are belittling here. Not grown "officials" who can defend themselves against your comments. Children that I'm sure didn't find it easy to come forward to begin with, and are probably humiliated by the statements they are having to make. Put the kids first. Leave the scandal out of it. That's what the investigation is for.

This Man's whole life appears to have been centered around gaining access to children. Private voice lessons, photograghy, Counseling emotionally vulnerable children and don't forget being a "Big Brother" through Big Brothers and Big Sisters of America. The last two positions set Brad up in a position of trust and power over these children and he violated that trust. That is what PREDITORS do! They prey on the vulnerable. I hope that those who personally know the victims and their families will offer their love, support, understanding and encouragement. Vicrims will feel shame even though it was not their fault and they need blame to be placed where it belongs...with Brad. They cannot heat enough times that they did nothing wrong to bring this about and that people do NOT think less of them for what has happened.

I hope the Citizens of McCurtain Co. bring the full wieght of public outcry on the District Attorney's office to prosecute Brad Porton on the charges brought against him. Don't let one families prominence and influence sweep this under the rug and leave countless numbers of children at risk in the future! If your child has had close contact with this man, its time to start asking questions. If your child has been a victim, speak to the investigator...don't allow only a few children to carry the whole burdon of justice for this monster by themselves. And PLEASE, if your child was a victim...get them into counseling with a reputable therapist right away. You might be able to pretend this didn't happen, but they will never be able to forget and it will impact every relationship they have from now on. It is so important to the healing process for victims to find their voice and become survivors!

He should fear "me", anyone who uses "the house of the lord" to prey on young boys should definately fear "god"! we will all have to pay for our sins, and i rest well at night knowing that BRAD PORTON, and individuals who support sick sick people like that will pay for their sins, instead of praying for brad right now who may not be guilty of everything that has been said, lets have a prayer go out to those poor CHILDREN that he has definately preyed upon and corrupted!

Do you idiots really believe everything you read? That's the problem with good ole McCurtain County. The newspaper says something & that's the gospel. Brad has been at home & at his Mom's house. Not "running". The police department knows where both places are and what he drives. They would have no problems finding him if there was reason to. Did the newspaper say that it was "roofies & ecstasy"? No... I didnt' think so. Brad has a medical degree and has a valid reason for having prescription drugs in his home. He is a grown man. He has the right to have porn. I have porn in my house & prescription drugs. Does that make me a child molester? No. These children that supposedly came forward-it's funny that suddenly there are 2 or 3 kids all at once that decided to come forward. That's not something you talk about with your friends and decide to come forward. That's something you keep to yourself & talk to your parents about. Not to other children. As for allowing my child to stay with Brad, yes. I would. Would I call my child a liar? No. If they said that something like this happened, I would ask questions & I would notify the proper authorities. I don't think that is what happened in this situation. I think he pissed someone off and they decided to try to ruin his life. Several years ago, my brother was accused of molesting his daughters-by his ex wife. He was dragged through the mud, lost his home & everything he owned to pay for an attorney, then was proven innocent. All because some chick was pissed off that he didn't love her anymore. Liars are everywhere,and just because it's backwoods McCurtain County doesn't mean that people are not capable of stirring up trouble & ruining people's lives. It's sad that someone who has been such a prominent citizen and has done so much good in that county is being persecuted. The law says innocent until proven guilty and the Bible says "Judge not lest ye be judged." I tend to forget that backwoods McCurtain County idiots that can't get their point across without cussing & swearing have never read the Bible or the law.

Wow, last i checked steroids are illegal unless you have a major illness which he doesn't other than sick in the head. And your 2-3 kid statement is way off. Try 35-40 that was the estimate as of the weekend. I am sure it will probally be a lot higher if the children get the strength to talk about what happened. And I wouldn't put to much into him not being in jail yet. They knew where Charles Manson was for weeks before they picked him up. JS
