    WHAT??? REALLY??? REALLY??? IM SORRY TO SAY BUT THE POLICE DEPT IN THIS TOWN NEEDS TO CHANGE THEIR ACT… THEY NEED TO BE MORE OF A PRESENCE IN THIS COMMUNITY…MAYBE IF THEY WERE MORE WORRIED ABOUT FIGHTING CRIME AND NOT WHO THEY KEEP AS FRIENDS OR RUNNING THERE MOUTHS ABOUT “MARRIED” PPL ARE DOING OR NOT DOING… THERE WOULD BE LESS CRIME, LESS DRUG ACTIVITY, LESS KIDS DRIVING LIKE ITS THE DAYTONA 500 ON THE STREETS… HELL WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A SPEEDING TICKET WAS WRITTEN, BEFORE 9PM??? WE PAY TO HAVE THESE OFFICERS TRAINED TO USE VASCAR, YET THE ONLY TIME IT GETS USED IS WHEN THEY HAVE IT CALIBRATED EVERY YEAR… WHAT A JOKE… TIME FOR A CHANGE… I PUT THIS ON THE MAYOR TOO FOR NOT CONTROLLING WHAT IS GOING ON…

    If this happened in February why did it take so long to arrest him and what I wanna know is what kinda parent would let him around their kid in the first place? Everyone in this area knows about this guy so I put the blame on the parent not the cops. There is only so much the cops can do. Parents need to be accountable also.

    I happen to know the town cops were keeping a good eye on this guy and like 8:59 said what about the parents? Why would any parent allow this man to be near their child?

    Rader was not on probation from what I understand so the cops cant really do anything but watch him and make sure he registers on megan’s law with his address.

    I know churches have posted his picture around and others and I would think that most people around here know about this guy so again what parent would let him near their kids?

    Either way I hope they have enough evidence to lock this creep up for a long time and keep him away from other little kids.

    These people should never get out of jail. Or a mental institution.

    In response to 1st post. I’m not as critical of the borough cops as you but there does seem to be alot of speeding around here.
