Stupid New Mexico Police Say Paedophiles Are Posing As Pedobear: Warn Your Kids

by | 30th, November 2011

TO New Mexico, where the Attorney General’s Office says “paedobear” aka “pedobear” is a menace to children. Pedobear is the Internet meme introduced to the Western web by 4chan as a way or mocking paedophiles and anyone posting creepy images and stories about children. It is a renamed version of the 2chan ASCII art character “kuma”. You might have seen Pedobear hanging out with the Pope.

Lynn Southard with the AGO says cars in Albuquerque and southern New Mexico are carrying paedobear stickers. Says she:

“It’s very scary, it’s a very scary situation that’s been brought to our attention that these vehicles are circulating around New Mexico.”

We’ve been here before. In 2010 the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department warned:

The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department is warning parents about a disturbing new phenomenon made popular by pedophiles and sexual deviants. The Pedo Bear began as an online Japanese cartoon character, and is known for his “lecherous nature” towards prepubescent children. Recently, pedophiles have adopted the bear as a mascot.

Although there have been no reported sightings of the image on the Central Coast, individuals dressed in the bear costume and car decals have been seen in Southern California.

It is beyond parody. Paedophiles are now dressed in bear suits to better lure children.

Only the man in the bear costume was not Mark Wallinger. He wasn’t a paedophile. He was a fan having a laugh at Comic Con.

Its all darn confusing. The only thing for it is to round up any adults who own a bear suit. Also, if you see a grown man buying a teddy bear, carrying one in public or driving about with one the back seat of their car – possibly near a school – yell “PEADO!” and demand that he be locked up for the rest to his unnatural life…
