    You’re ridiculous. Go check out the Megan’s law website – see the pictures of all the registered sex offenders in the area. Know who I’m more scared of? Creepy, fat, middle aged white guys who seem to have the sex offender thing under control.

    I assume youre also Native American, since you’re so upset about all the immigrants runing YOUR country. So on behalf of my Irish and German ancestors, I apologize for them emigrating here and spoiling everything for you. I hope you can learn to forgive all us for trampling on the earth that YOUR ancestors have inhabited for hundreds of years.

    And this is the only write up this disgusting heinous act will get.. a water main breaks, crews work round the clock and there are like 3 full page write-ups and videos? But let scum like this happen, and it is almost as though it is nothing… when are we going to grow up and realize what is important in life… certainly not only the me issue, but shouldn’t we care more about what crimes are being brought to the youngest and most innocent of population. It is sad… very sad…
