    I always thought that was the same context as a kid flipping you off from the back of a moving school bus.

    Hard to tell if the media is just cashing in on moms who like being worried.

    Glad they’re letting us know about this a week and a half later.

      Um, it was LESS then a week ago. Yea they could’ve told the public sooner, but get your math straight, eh?

    I tried picking a few adult women up by throwing stuff at them. It didn’t work. Sounds more like the guy was teasing or harassing rather than trying to lure based on the article.

    Was he driving a white van?….probably sitting in there sweating like crazy thinking about how he wanted to miolest some little girls while some milk duds were melting between his legs……….this guy probably eat color crayons and rolls his poo into little balls.

    Nice, Thats 1 street away from me. Glad the police let me know about this as I was just at the local station 3days ago. I guess its our fault, we have received notice of sex offenders moving into the neighborhood a few times in the last 1 1/2.
