2AM’s Im Seulong: “Sexual Predators Must Be Punished More”
On August 23, 2AM‘s Im Seulong strongly conveyed his opinions on sex offenders. He wrote on twitter, “I wish the government would toughen up penalties for sexual predators more, more, more, and even more. You bastards!” With this comment, Im Seulong posted a link to news article about how electronic anklets are failing at preventing registered sex offenders from assaulting people.

When he couldn’t achieve his goal, the predator stabbed her multiple times and killed her.

It’s scary to go anywhere anytime nowadays,” and “I cannot agree with you more. They are satans.”
