  • Dude! I used to wait on this guy at waffle house. He never seemed like THAT kind of perv!

  • When they are investigating, why do they wait until someone accumulates so much material to charge them with thousands of counts? Is one count not a felony? If he is buying this stuff, then someone is profiting and the rest of the money is being used to exploit more children. Seems like a faster bust would be more prudent.
