    Good..take down these pervs and take them down by full force. The public needs to know “these same guys” then troll the internet commenting “pretending to be the common citizen” claiming sex offender restrictions and the Registry is unlawful or too restricting” Don’t fall for it, these men and these groups are devious and self serving. Make Florida the harshest State in the country against these freaks and “victim counts will go down” Isnt that what it is truly all about??
