      You are absolutely right, Robert. Will is just showing his ignorance on top of his racist views by commenting on something he didn’t even bother to read.

    How about the wierdo accomplice “Mango”? Get that filthy bird behind bars,Wait a second he already is!!! LMAO

  8. Sandra Rae says:

    What is the matter with people? Did you all somehow miss the point that the HBPD did a great job in recognizing a known sex offender and taking him off the streets before he did more harm to our children? All these comments are about a parrot and jokes. God help this world…

  9. johnnydilznik says:

    Actually you have zero facts that “most sex offenders are white”. In fact, hop on the sex offenders web site for California and see how many hits you get in Santa Ana, Los Angeles and La Puente.

    1. Really says:

      That’s just in California. Look at the population; however, whites do make up the biggest percentage of sex offenders in the United States. Look up the FBI statistics, and you will find the truth there. Or, is it to difficult to handle?

      1. CarmaDogma says:

        It would stand to reason that number would be higher given that America is primarily white. They come in all varieties… Molexicans, Caucolestors, Africapists, Pedophasians, Persiaphiles, etc.

  10. Dan says:

    Yea sure… blame it on the white guy, just focus your pea brain on the fact that a “CHILD MOLESTER” was taken off the streets!! Think the child cares what race the offender is?

  11. brian harrrington says:

    send him where all dirty birds go to send him to hell withouth the special suit LMAO all races of pepole are sex offenders and not just one race not all whites not all blacks not all latins are sex offenders but all of human kind are in one form of another stop sniffing glue and your brian cells will come alive this country is jackup in many ways we are very smart but highly under educated and there is no self responsiblity hell am probaly the only american that dosn’t have any debt go fig that out at age 44 when most peeps at 44 are still in debt to there eye balls

  12. Jon says:

    The Dept. of Corrections needs to stop protecting these chesters and put them in general population so the inmates can get their hands on them and justice can served to these pieces of $%#@.

    1. chefmipat says:

      You are absolutely right on that one. Stop protecting them and let nature take it’s course

  13. Joe says:

    Great Job Huntington Beach Police. Probably saved a child or two from this pervert. Put this guy in a federal lockup with a bunch of guys that hate perverts. That would be true justice.

    Chris Hansen: “Mango parrot, please take a seat over there and finish that margarita.

    Parrot: “Sit on my face, BRAAAAAAAAAAK”

      ‘To catch an endangered predator’, tonight after Opioid filled obese Rush Limbaugh on Fox news.

      LMAO, i think my hangover is going away.

  15. Sue Wilder says:

    Turn him loose to the prison population. THEY will execute him quickly. But hack off his genitals first with NO painkiller. Or use a chainsaw.

  16. Mel Gibson says:

    Damn. But what did he do?

  17. Sabrina m says:

    The only difference with Latino/ Hispanic sex offenders and whites is that white people don’t think they will get caught cause they are white and Hispanic / Latino know they are already targeted for racial profiling so thy are better at hiding themselves/ not getting caught… It has nothing to do with the numbers! All kinds of peopele are trash in this world and deserve to be where god desires on judgement day… I hope some children speak up and aren’t embarrassed because the more children that do the longer this guy will be put away

  18. tweek says:

    throw his ass in the electric chair

  19. veronica says:
