Austin Jones and other scum like him

Fuck Austin Jones.

He is by no means the first or last person involved in the hardcore scene that was arrested or accused of child porn, or exploiting children (Brian Stars anyone?). Nor will he be the last.

I’m not sick, so I can’t understand it. Nor do I wish to.

Jones basically got in trouble for asking 14-year-old girls to twerk for him while he was on YouTube.

He is claiming innocent but video doesn’t lie.

For those of you who are single, and hitting the road, this brings up an important note. If you are flirting with a young man or woman, MAKE SURE THEY ARE 18 OR OLDER. I think there are very few things worse than being hit with the title of child molester, or rapist, and the truth is no one cares if you are 18 and he/she was 17. They just see statutory rape. In the publics mind it will automatically go to you sleeping with someone MUCH younger than you. Your music career will be over. If there is even the slightest doubt in your mind, ask for an ID. If they wont give it, don’t go any further. It’s absolutely not worth it.

And don’t ask for 14-year-olds to twerk for you on YouTube. Austin Jones did. Don’t be like Austin Jones.
