I don't see Paul Flores listed as a sex offender. Isn't he supposed to be registered?

Living a fine life in the Middle East? That made me laugh, myself being from Iran originally, where people are going to jail or being shot dead fighting for their basic rights. Poor Kristin... I hope she gets the justice she deserves

When you see a woman and a man struggling, always say something. Do something. Don't think it's none of your business. You might save a life if you don't silently pass them by.
