    Thank god some brave citizens were able to rescue this innocent little girl, the incompetent clowns in law enforcement were too busy harassing minorities for petty traffic violations and too busy searching innocent motorists cars for weed to go after real criminals. Cops are such worthless cowards

  5. OMG!

    I am so happy that the citizens of fresno go involved instead of looking the other way. the citizens that ran the pervert away were looking out for the safety of all of the children. which is a rare. most people would have only gotten their children to safety. now the system needs to give this child molesting freak life without parole and castration for messing up this childs life. but knowing the system he'll on get a couple of years for each crime then early release for good behavior so that he can prey on other children.
