Mother of a sex offender

When my 20 year old son was arrested in 2015 for having consensual with a 16 year old and exchanges pics of each other; the Chicago chronicle posted a story about his arrest that had very little true to it… of course as a mom I jumped immediately to defend him and all of the lies they were saying about him and his arrest… many people put in their 2 senses and some were very rude to me… but there was a guy who was very aggressive and threaten to go after my son and making pay for being a #@! Pedophile, and of course I challenge his threat by saying, ok you and how many more are going to come get my son? Because he’s got many friends and family members around him… he immediately changed his demeanor and backed off… the chronicle deleted all of the comments and left the my son’s pic and their lies… there’s was no way to comment it anymore. I wish there was a way to get them to remove the lies and pics of my child.
