    Where is that pedophile task force?? Truelly hope that vigilanty mentality does not rise up and attempt to deal with this sick, perverted element amongst the community. Some severe punishments need to be meted out to discourage this type of child abuse. Justice can only do so much. Maybe they should be put into the general population in correctional facilities….see how well they do there. I really have a disdain for child molesters.
