    I think the media is promoting fake fear.

  • Just another Saying

    So What How is he going to know their ages. Now days kids are too gigantic than their age. He looks 12 to me too. Just let him go.

    • Another Liberal

      No way, I say we torture him.

    When I was in high school there was always the few losers who didn’t do anything when they turned 18 and continued to hang out with high school kids after school and during football games and things like that. That’s probably what this is.

      I was thinking the same thing, like the matthew mcconaughey character in the film “Dazed and Confused”

      ” I keep getting older, they stay the same age.”

    When I was a kid we called it “cruising”, now it’s a felony.

    • Dude

      He was bothering 13 year olds

      • Setting

        Does he have somekind of Scanner to match their appearance with age. Just let him go. He’s just 18 and want a girl fraind.

        • Well

          He’s 20, not 18. And if you think it’s hard to tell the difference between an 18 year old girl and a 13 year old girl, you’d better stay away from schools!!

          • @Well

            Actually mr know it all in Minnesota you can be 40 and be with a 16 year old, as long as you’re not in a position of power and the female gives consent, so knowing the difference between a 13,14 or 16 year old can be difficult.

    • MarkH

      Now that I’m older & no longer closeted I still “cruise”..But now it’s done in Loring Park..Peace

    haha my boyfriend went to high school with him & you guys are all wrong. We both agree he should not be let go. He was an adult & was all with it in his head. He knew what he was doing. He must have been leading almost a ‘double life’ persay, unless his girlfriend of a 2 years knew. Yuck, he deserves whats coming!

    • Chandra

      I agree with you Kayla!!! His girlfriend use to be my best friend and I dont think she would have stayed with him if she knew….
