          but moreover.

          What the shit?!!?

          And also. That article is so matter-factly written. "Mangal picked her up, took her to eat at a McDonald's and then took her to his apartment, the girl told investigators. He kissed her and told her wanted to have sex with her, she said. They undressed, but Mangal didn't have any condoms. So they went to the store and bought condoms and candy. When they returned they had sex, according to the complaint.

          When Mangal drove the girl home, the girl's mother was waiting for her. The girl later told her mother she had sex with Mangal. Investigators searched the girl's cellphone and discovered she and Mangal had contacted each other by calls or text messages about 900 times between Sept. 8 and Sept. 17."

  8. thats the worst

    I really don't want to believe this. AKM was a gem of a person. yes, sometimes gave off a sketchy vibe, but a really really kind and nice guy. And this is going to ruin his life. forever. think of his family. think of yourself in his position... a young aspiring and intelligent person, who did something super dumb, and then found himself in this situation...

    If its true, shitty move AKM. She was too young. but at least it was consensual.

    But as I said, i really don't want to believe it. I really hate it when bad things happen to good people.
