    Accused pedophiles/ child molesters like Gonzalez, Sylvain Kustyan, Ariel Castro, Jerry Sandusky, etc. prove that we need to catch these menaces to our children’s welfare before they prey on them for years. Gonzales, Castro and Sandusky are now safely behind bars. Unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, is now a fugitive from the law. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% they must be stopped ASAP!
