    Remember, although those 14 year olds seem to be willing to sell themselves, they are still victims. A”normal” 14 year old would not consider this. Ones that do are obviously struggling with emotional and psychological issues. There is also likely to be substance abuse involved for someone to go to such desperate measures for money. These are untreated victims who are the perfect prey for a sicko like this. Blaming the victims is justifying this pervs actions. They should lock him up for good and give him thorazine until he is drooling, unable to summon the energy to offend anyone else.
