    Hey Matt!
    Have you gone to escambia sherriff’s web site and gone to the bottom
    of the page and seen how many perv’s are right here in our area.
    There are 8 of them starting 1.4 miles from me and none further than
    5 miles from me.

    And when they’re 30 they can’t tell me they didn’t know the girl was
    only 12.

    I wish they would lock them all up and throw away the key.
    Remember they never cure sexual offenders. So there
    is no such thing as just ONE TIME!
