Well I hope the other three people in the car steps up because statement stated that there were two people in the car and that Tolar was driving. But as Felicia stated that there were four people in the car. And even witnesses stated that there were at least four people in the car. The sad thing is, if Mr VanSlyke is found innocent there could be some HUGE law suits pending. And IF these other people in the car were underage... those lawsuits could be reflected upon the parents cause they are underage. Just think... parents will be hit hard because of all the lies.
People could lose homes and property and money because of their kids. If my kid knew information man I would be taking them down and getting their names cleared. Because IF this goes to trial and Mr VanSlyke is found innocent there is alot more trouble ahead for all involved. Sorry I would NOT want to go down for lies my kid has told. In this economy you can afford to pay out money for something that could honestly been taking care of prior? And according to reports Mr VanSlyke has agreed to a polygraph. I pray for those who were in the car. Cause this could really back fire on them. The damage could be far worse then imagine. So people need to step up. And for those who don't realize it... an ISP number can be retrived from here and people could be questioned. So if anyone does have information really should tell the prosecuter or even Mr VanSlyk'e lawyer before they are faced with far more serious charges. Lying on a police statement or givng police false information is a BIG crime. Any officer will tell you that. I would think no one else would want to face trouble for this.

Wow. I live in Coopersville too. This airing of our dirty little secret ( Otherwise known as Timberline Estates) is very embarassing. We are generally a very nice little town, with normal families who work, and take care of their families by honest means. Unforunately, there is a swell group of losers who have found each other and populate the trailer park in our quaint village. The vast majority of Coopersville's crime could likely be eliminated if these fine citizens would pack their bags and hit the road.

That is absolutely correct. If someone "catches" you, doesn't like what they see, and turns you in, yes ... you DO have to register as a sex offender.

Seriously, she is a good example of the need in our underclass for mentors and for better role models than what they receive at home. Ignorance breeds ignorance. Literally.

I know for a fact that dan didnt do this like they are saying he did. He is my cousin and he just isnt the kind of person. I heard that the accusser is a felon who is on his last leg before he goes to jail himself. I think that this is a made up story just to get back at Dan for something that he said to him. Dan and the accusser were friends before all this happened. Facts arnt always the only thing written.
