    You are all forgetting the child molester glasses. They are all issued the “medi-cal” glasses. Go to Megan’s law and look at all the guys with glasses. It may forever change your style of eyewear….

    And the molesting continues except this time he’ll be the recipient of some Bubba Time!

    Another Day…..another Child Molester on the Central Coast.
    I guess we are going to have to open a local Chapter of NAMBLA.
    When you can’t make Right/Wrong moral judgements because it offends people….this is what you get….anything goes.

      And they always 99% of the time have the dirtbag goatee chin beard. What’s with that choice in personal grooming for the molesters, something to do with Satan or something?

        lol…hey-I am telling you—if we don’t have SOME humor about this; we are going to end up in an existential crisis it is happening so frequently lately. Ask first responders and nurses about “dark humor”.

        I thought it was a mustache thing. You are either cool like Burt Reynolds or creepy like Chester.

      • TaxMeAgain says:

        Yep. You nailed it. Thank you LameCommenter. For so long this basic fact has eluded us all. Now we can simply round up all of the men with goatee chin beards and kill them and only 1% of child molesters will remain. Thank you for your insightful detective work. Idiot.
