->The thing I hate about pedophiles is that they [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil give other child killers a bad name]]. Like there's no other reason to kill a kid. I mean, what if he [[DisproportionateRetribution looked at you wrong]]? That's why if I ever have to kill a kid, I'm doing it from a safe distance with a sniper rifle.
