I heard that a woman was beaten and raped at the Hollywood tavern this weekend. I also heard the man was arrested after being caught by some people at the bar. Good job folks.
I am concerned because I heard he got away with it 3 or 4 other times and would like to know if it just wasn't reported or if it wasn't looked into or lack of evidence or what the heck.

Wow I guess the search for drugs and gossip is much more important than the safety of the public..

Hi there Paula,
Now let me clarify, I did not use my real name only because you just don't on this site. If you knew whom you were talking to, you would change your tone.
Now to clarify my comments..
I am not "picking" on the Hollywood..you're mighty sensitive. I heard what I heard from a reliable source, the woman's uncle. I complimented the people who supposedly held the suspect until the police arrived.( Did you even read that part?) I was asking if this guy has raped before why he was free to do it again? Now I did not mention which night it allegedly occurred did I? I said weekend. On to my second comment, when I commented the second time, no one else had, however I noticed some of the other subjects were people talking about everyone else under the sun, and asking for drugs. I hope I'm clear. How does one "pick on a bar" ? A bar is an inanimate object and has no emotions. If there are so many rumors floating around about the Hollywood, that you take this comment completely out of context, perhaps it's touching close to home.. you could try cleaning the place up and then no one will ever doubt you.

first of all you said this weekend and that was the nite we were most crowded so i assumed sorry i should not do that but this did not happen that nite or any other nite i didnt say anyone was picking on the hollywood i did say there has been a lot of false rumors over the years and i dont know why you say i need to clean it up cause it is clean and i dont know how you can tell my tone but im obviously not gonna know who you are and i dont care what site it is i will stand behind what i say and this did not happen no rape no holding anyone till the cops came none of this happened and no it is not hitting close to home thats the whole point it is all falsei dont think i took anything out of context if i did then i am sorry and as far as anyone doubting me anyone who knows me well knows im honest and as for gossipers that dont know what they are talking about i could care less if they doubt me or not

If there were an ongoing investigation they wouldn't have told me likely. I am not spreading gossip. I was just asking based on the info I was given. Perhaps I should have said the area of the Hollywood.. there's a lot of dark street and places in between and behind buildings where such a thing could happen. And the assaults that occurred last year were never reported to the public.

That'll be enough of that. No alleged rape occurred, you can verify via public record and inquiry of any local law enforcement, media outpost, or public service record. Sounds to me as though this is definitely someone stirring nothing but lies at the expense of others. If you have a question about the Hollywood, I'm certain contacting Paula would not be that hard. She's listed, and would more than likely welcome your phone call.

Who the hell are you to tell me "that'll be enough of that".. What the hell do you think this site is for. I am not trying to cause trouble for ANYONE except the alleged rapist, if in fact there is one. I will speak when I want and say what I please, last time I checked I live in a free country, I am debt free, over 21 ( way over 21) married for ages, own my house, vehicles 3 business, pay my taxes, raised my children well. NOBODY gets to tell me that will be enough of that.

Enough of that already. No one cares youve been proven to be a liar but you have some wild obsession with a rape. You said earlier if you knew who you were talking to Paula would change her tone. So you can dish it out but cant take it. Nice. Why not go ask around at the hollywood. Im sure they have regs that can back Paula up. FOIA is your friend. Oh and if youve made 8t this far stop throw8ng a tantrum bec really ITS ENOUGH OF THAT ALREADY.

This site is apparently nothing more than the spreading of libelous misinformation regarding an "alleged" rapist and a local business.

As you can see, I don't get on here much.. YEAH an shuhhh need to just shut the fuck up. I don't have a wild obsession with rape, you fucking sick jerk, I merely asked if one had occured,I can do that because I live in the United States. You want to act like I've done something wrong when I haven't. It's a ratty little dark bar, that smells like sewage and doesn't look much better, rips off their djs if they don't have a good night. That's not what good people do.The three of you together can barely put a paragraph together what with the mis spellings, grammer and punctuation mistakes and putting numbers into words. ENOUGH OF THAT ALREADY YOU IDIOTIC MORONS

Never heard about a rape there, but i dont live in Herrin anymore. I always heard it was a lesbo bar?

BUT i did see young underage girls aka children hanging outside that place the other day. Not walking by...hanging out with adults(both men and women).
