    these men should not be hanging out with young girls. Young girls also need to get wise as to what these sick perverts do to young nieve girls. we need to educate our children and know who and what they are doing. Get the computer out of the chiilds room into the living room monitor our children and stop putting your heads in the sand. this girl probably meet him on the computer.
