    When I note stories along these lines, I can’t help but think A LOT of context is missing. For instance, how was he not caught earlier with a young person if that was his nature? It’s not like he starts out dating women his age, then women in their 20’s, then women in their late teens, then women in their early teens, is it? Over how long of a time period would it have occurred if such was the case? Certainly an aspect of our society that is disconcerting, and makes me worry why our society seems to have given up on law and order and justice in favor of a survival of the fittest mentality.

    This comments section is causing me trouble, it’s not letting me know what I’m doing, and not letting me change what I need to change. (No deleting extra comments allowed? No editing existing comments?)
