    People in Hazleton are just not understanding sexy time the proper way. Skooks sure seem to be wailing away on themselves any chance they get, even just by turning on TV2 sports on channel 13. Sad area. Please send them help.

    So, there’s all kinds of photos of all of the other reported kiddie diddlers. What about this guy’s face? Or, are we being insensitive if we inquire as to his ethnicity?

    “….had been previously convicted?” And……..what was the best case scenario with a pedophile? That this guy was going to somehow control himself for the good of mankind? Pedophilia is that: a disorder that cannot be treated. EVER. With technology bringing imagery and videos to a zillion portable devices, it’s no wonder that people are opening doors that they should never have even been able to find.

    EUNUCH. make him a eunuch

    I called this a few days ago whem they caught a pervert in Pike county. When I said there are more perverts caught in Wyoming county then anywhere else.

    I wish they’d put this much effort into finding who’s MAKING child porn, instead of who’s watching it.

        Sadly, in our contemporary culture of hedonism, every possible fetish and interest is considered “acceptable” and to be “tolerated.” When the DSMV was revised, mental illness was diminished to the oddball quirk rather than something dreadfully damaging. Pedophilia is now considered a problem, but not an illness, which it clearly is.
