Start working at home with Google! Just work for few hours and have more time with friends and family. I earn up to $500 per week. It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Online jobs give new hope during recession. You could check here Pow6.com

What would he have done to these innocent babies had this clown succeeded? Just the thought of such is infuriating. It seems there is a certain and growing segment of our society that has this urge to try to lure children into the sinister entrapments of their predatory behavior.

I'm a father. If my daughter called me about this guy before calling the cops, well, you know the rest of the story.

If he has a girlfriend she probably said NO one too many times. Maybe an initiation into a gang? Who knows what he was thinking. Started kind of young though.
