  1. Kim Rivers is always hanging around the mall and walking around downtown. In fact she was arrested not long ago for shoplifting and resisting arrest at Walmart (search police beat u will see the shoplifting charges). People trail behind her and yell at her that she is a child molester, and a sick loser, and to go crawl under a rock and stay out of public areas. Most can’t believe she is not in jail. She seems to really enjoy it, I witnessed it myself! She just flipped them the bird and laughed. This is one sick girl! I was astounded! Look up her facebook, everyone should know what these two look like, Kim has a bounce in her step when she walks you can’t miss her if you see her. Make sure and read the comments and photos people have posted, omg u will not believe it. Search FB for > Kim Rivers (Crazy Kimmie)
