  • How disgusting. This world isn’t the world I was brought up in.


  • School holidays. More children are out and about. Even with parents around children are not always safe especially if they disappear from parents’ view. One of the girls may have thought she knew the man.


  • Just disgusting! Way too much of this happening nowadays.
