119. Move????
Edited on Thu May-19-05 09:03 PM by BiggJawn
What are you implying?
Come on, out with it. You KNOW you want to accuse ME of being a child molestor. C'mon, I won't even bust an "alert" cap on you...

2500 yards. That's half a mile, yes, you see that.
Now, here's your homework assignment...Think about your town. Think about a 1/2 mile radius around every school, church, and daycare.

Doesn't leave very much room for somebody to live if they were convicted of screwing their 14-y-o- girlfriend when they were 19, or the guy who grabbed the wrong dick in the men's room, does it?

You're one of those people who read "Sex Offender" and IMMEDIATELY jump to the conclussion that we're talking child molestors. THAT is why I threw the strawman accusation at you. *I* wasn't "talking child victims here", YOU were, and YOU threw THEM in my face for whatever reason.
