Warning: Don't Hug Strangers

Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:44 pm

This guy took it over the top, but still, don't hug strangers. You might potentially get charged with assault. No signs of the people being hugged resisting.

The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

An unusual story - very odd

"Serial hugger" is new to me

I hug people a lot -- only faces that I know

I'm not sure, nor are the authorities, that he has committed a crime. He asked for hugs and apparently recieved (or gave) hugs after getting permission.

True, it was under false pretenses, but, still...

I need to think on this........

I know one of the Assisstant DA's in STL. Maybe I'll give her a jingle.

I can understand why the Women feel like this because its deception. He should be given a warning that if he carries on he will be charged. What a weirdo . Something missing from his life if he feels the need to do this.

Hi!

What I'm not sure of is why did the women go to the police in the first case? Did they just think there was something not right about the whole thing? Did they really feel that violated? Had they heard about the guy and realised it must have been him so reported it?

He sounds like a pretty strange guy. Maybe when he gets a girlfriend he will stop!

Many thanks.

Pierre.

That's how easy it is to con people.


Unless it can be proven that he has grabbed anyone without their consent, there's no crime committed.
