    We don’t know what was said? So now it’s illegal to talk to high school girls if you’re 18 or over. Watch out guys. The police are doing their “servin’ and protectin'” thing, which usually means someone’s rights are getting abused.

    Maybe if she wasn’t dressed like a skank, she wouldn’t have horny men stop and talk to her. If you don’t like men, dress like a lady, not a prostitute.

    In what world is it acceptable for a 40 year old man to approach a 16 year old girl regardless of how she’s dressed. Maybe Grants ignorant tirade is more of an admission of guilt.

    Grant, can you read? I’m curious if you have an excuse for your ignorance. The article clearly states that the men were described as being approximately 40 years of age…..not 18 or even close to it. How she was dressed is completely irrelevant. Your comment shouts of a guilty conscience. Let me guess…you must be one of those “over 18” year old guys who likes his girlfriends young….(like 15 or 16 years old)….who can’t obtain someone his own age because he lacks the skills. Don’t embarrass yourself anymore and keep your injudicious thoughts inside your uninhabited head.

    Grant you sound like a pedophile …who cares what she was wearing..People leave our KIDS ALONE

    This is the kind thing I hate to see. We have 4 girls and we warn them about guys like this. We do our best to protect them from the bad guys but they seem to be everywhere. I am not just talking about the 2 guys in the article I am also talking about the babbling fool named Grant, I hope none of my girls bring home someone like you……..or someone that sags their pants. I agree there are some kids that do not dress the way they should, but they are KIDS leave them alone.

    Grant, are you pd?

    Not enough information to form any reasonable conclusion about any of the characters in this story, except maybe, ya might want to think twice before approaching a 16-yr-old female in this community.

  9. Carmen says:

    I applaud the young girl for remembering such a detailed description. Every lady has a right to walk down the street without fear of having to worry about some creep approaching her. Regardless of how she is dressed (which the article does not say anyhow) they’re well over just being 18 and being interested. They should know better!
