      Sadly these are the ones who got caught, and prob 100 to 1 go unreported because its generally a person these kids trust and are scared to turn in. Its a sad sick world, n pa prob ranks way up for these type of sickos, i work in a prison and want to smash everyone of them in face. Even worse fact, they have better health care and stress free lives than us once in state custody it is sickening if u knew how well they are treated, not by me though im not giving in to the compassionate liberals.

    People would still vote for him. They voted for Trump, right? “So what. Doesn’t make him a bad guy”. That’s what they said. Trump’s victim was 13.
