    Faux Hemingway,
    I challenge to find anyone who thinks that a grown man stripping off his clothes and touching himself in an Elementary school is normal

    I seem to be on the moderators bad list today. Nothing is going through.

    Nisa, I'm sorry this bothers you so much. No one is trying to disrespect your family situation. You are taking this way too personal, don't read into it what isn't there.

    ""Detectives are asking that anyone with information that could help them identify the man to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office""... Could you please release the video so that we can all get a good look at the fella?? Oh the humiliation he will endure. Plus hopefully he will be identified.. Was there an act of perversion in any of this?? I can kind of see something lke this playing out in a hollywood film.. Guy has an accident in his britches, sees an open window at a nearby school, the school is closed and he thinks no one will see him so he enters and removes his clothes to clean up or maybe even find something else to put on. He leaves a mess behind, and the surveillance video is viewed to see what happened.. Next thing ya know, he's in the news for "Getting Naked at the School House!"

    Could this have been one of the Secret Service agents that got to drunk and got seperated from the other guys in Columbia. He may have hopped on a plane and flew to Fayetteville and mistook the school for a prostitutes motel room. They have some powerful drugs in Columbia.

    "Some things are just not funny UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES"- not true at all. Many people turn to humor to get through very trying and difficult times. ANYTHING can be made fun of- may not be in good taste, but NOTHING is sacred on this planet and is open for ridicule and laughter- there were even 9/11 jokes JUST after 9/11. Laughter is good for the body and mind."

    It's so sad that some people's need to see their insensitively mocking comments in print outweight their sense of common decency when it comes to issues like this. I've had a sister and a niece become victims to people like this as I stated in my response and yet it doesn't faze you to disrespect my family situation by tying my words out of context to your search for laughs.

    I used to comment alot on here years ago and it's hurtful responses like yours that are why I don't comment on here anymore. It's sad and I hope you feel like a big man in doing that. Have a wonderful day.
