  1. This guy lived right behind our house plenty of kids play in our neighborhood. And we have 5 kids of our own. So glad he was caught. And I pray for the families affected including his. I hope they get the help they need to overcome this. Since this man has scared these small children with his actions.

  2. Anne Traglia, whoa to others to call people fools. I most certainly did read the full article. I also know that people have gotten extremely hurt because it ended up there were circumstances that were not actual evidence. This is a tragedy. For you to slam somebody in public, is extremely immature and the fact that you take this personally who’s to say you haven’t done it yourself??? You see it’s easy to say something bad about somebody, so make sure you look in a mirror first and repeat it back to yourself what you’re going to say. It’s sad how you talk about others you don’t know, do you walk in their shoes? If so then you can talk. Easy to get on a soapbox hard to take words back, something you should think about.Have a good day 🙂

  8. It starts with how we conduct ourselves as adults and that includes on these post. I did not know this man personally, but, I do know that he taught my children. None of us were there, this is very shocking, and it’s terrible when somebody makes a horrible move like this!!!! What we need to do right now, is pray for those families of the children involved, and pray for the teacher himself as difficult as this sounds. Being positive and setting a good example outweighs negativity and harshness. Equals a better community.
