    Alot of monster are crowling back in to there cave but there still exist and most were victims also and the were they became the monster...

    Were do u turn to when u ask your therapist and the first thing they say is think before u sapeek I might have to report u...

    In America is there something like that were there really trying

    And even more so how much Dos it take to finally man up to it and all both side of the fence u being judge

    I'm not saying he is right and he is wrong and I'm not playing down victims G-d forbid
