  1. What’s wrong with this world when molesters are aloud to walk the streets and the victims family members do what should have been done gets jail!
    Our laws to not fit the crime! If you’re sick enough to take advantage of a child like that person did then the family should have every right to protect their children and track the molester down and do whatever they see fit! Good Job Cain for protecting your child the way you should have. You did nothing wrong and that piece of crap will get what karma sees fit! What a SICKO! I am so sorry for your child and hope she can recover so this doesn’t hurt or harm her in the future!
