Remember folks, he was only accused. Rumor is that his accuser is a complete whack job. Sensationalistic journalism at its best.

Paul I agree, i think you read too much into my comment or misunderstood it. My point is we evaluate people on appearance and what they do for a living.That's a fact it matters not how you feel, the majority rules.Racism will never die in this country it has moved behind closed doors however .When i hear people say there is no racism and ignore racism claims.To me they are Racist, cause it does exist so people need to stop lying.Remember our Caucasian society may not see it as our minority society sees it because they do not experience it everyday.Going back to the point.The last 7 Orange perv arrests have embarrassed the most distinguished residents.May i remind you of the undercover Racebrook tract operation which arrested 4 surprisingly respected white males and 2 years ago the owner of Pasta fair on the post rd sitting in his car performing sexual acts on himself while watching the boys play baseball at the fields.My point again is that these men are not the look of a criminal.So i repeat my comment and say i don't trust anyone, shouldn't we learn from the catholic scandal.

Question for all of you. You all seem to know more about this then what they are writing about and definately more than I know about and he is my neighbor. Are we sure it was 2 little girls? How do we know the accuser is a whack job? I am calling the records department at the police station this morning to hopefully find out more information; however, last night was the first I had heard about these allegations which really bothers me considering I have small children and live right next door. Can anyone give me more information?

I worked with the guy, and he's got this certain creep factor. Usually, in these cases, they have to have some pretty solid evidence in order to apprehend these characters.. Mind you, these alleged allegations took place on Thanksgiving of last year, so they must have ben watching him for quite some time..
