Why can't this guy move to San Francisco where he could expore his sexuality amongst other public masterbaters and child molesters?

Maybe he could move in with his mother. If she bought a brownstone for the pervert to live in, she must have some resources...

why not move to partridge drive and take the heat off the poor working slobs that are only trying to make a living. The Citizens corps will now have a real purpose for their harassment.

why is this animal free to roam???

tks to the judge for his reduced sentence, and big deal 10yrs probation, how many times can he get into trouble before they throw him back into the system.

i guess his assault on his girlfriend was not enough.

tks to our judicial system for continuing to NOT PROTECT WOMEN & CHILDREN

...how about the death penalty for all kid-touchers???.....we would not have to worry about the recidivism rates....nor would we waste money on trying to "re-hab" these sickos....

...if not death...how about chemical castration?

MADhatter, I'd settle for castration for all rapists and child molesters...of course, then there is that pesky "wrongfully accused" issue. I give up.

Here is exactly why I was so upset when the rapist who served 24 years moved to Southbury upon release. You can monitor them all you want, this guy is living PROOF that it just doesn't matter. He's on probation right?? Well why is he still roaming around after all the numerous violations, public lewdness the dispute with the girlfriend!!
He should not be living as a free man. It's not right to the rest of us who live are lives abiding the law. We have to live our lives with people like him who obviously can do whatever the hell he wants and maybe as punishment he'll recieve more probation time!! He broke the law again...send him back! Get him off the streets!

Dear Ridgfield U.S.A.,
How is it that anyone can justify blind rage.
Not enough jobs for law enforcement who are already stretched beyond usefulness?
Maybe its offenders failure to live up to some pious extremists expectation for the world?
Or imminent danger related to a program which was never funded?
Building a nation on the backs of sex offender opens the door for this.

The 1,2,3's of sex offenders.
1. The recidivism rate of sex offenders is under 5%
2. 90% of all sex crimes are committed within the family.
3. 92% of all sex crimes are perpetrated by people not on the sex offender registry.
If the bulls eye is 5% of the target and the bulls eye scores no points, what justifies the billions of tax payer dollars for the
project? Do you really think Laws like this are doing any good.

Keith Richard Radford is a convicted sex offender. check his link and google his name and you will find out why he is against punishing sex offenders.
his numbers are bull - the less than 5% number of repeat offenders has been shown to be false. other reports shown more than 40% repeat their sex crimes within ten years. also, more than 80% of all rapes are not even reported at all. all info easy to find online.
take it easy on sex offenders? no way.

oppressed - i don't know that Ridgefield has that reputation. what i know for sure is that there are a lot of people who post here that have an inferiority complex when it comes to ridgefield because they have more money and like to complain about the people living there without knowing anything about them. i have worked on many plumbing jobs in Ridgefield over the years and my own experience is that the people i have met have been very nice. in fact, compared to some of the people i meet in norwalk, danbury, bethel, and other local towns, they are usually nicer to me. in danbury, people complain that they have to pay for a service call at all - my prices are fair and i work hard and they still try to chisel me - not in Ridgefield - they just pay the bill and say thank you.

but as for this story - this creep has a criminal history - a serious one. why do you think he is being unfairly targeted? you have any proof - or are you just blowing smoke?

opressed - so it is not that the cops are the ones who are targeting anyone - it is one isolated case of a family that neighbors do not like. that is a long way from your first claim. and it has nothing at all to do with the story about the sex offender. or about any other people in Ridgefield - just the ones who dont like you (sorry, i mean "the hardworking family"). i really doubt it is because the neighbors don't like working moms - there are plenty of them in ridgefield. i live in Redding, in Georgetown, right near the town line of ridgefield and i know tons of two-income homes in ridgefield.

The real issue is that the troublemakers are dealing in something and they are afraid this targeted person perhaps knows something about it.

Their tactic is to lessen the credibility of the person. but what goes around comes around.

so now on to your pervert.

Well this is news to me.
I am all for rehabilitation of people that commit a crime, and believe that once you have paid your debt to society that you have the right to go on with your life.
BUT, It has been proven again and again that sex offenders have one of the highest rates of resitvisim.(sp)
If he was seen in NY as the article says, exposing himself, then why wasnt he sent back to jail to finish his sentence???
He is not the only sex offender that we have living in this area though, and I have the unmost confidence that the police and everyone involved with this man's placement in the area will monitor this guy very very closely

The people of Ridgefield are true community people. This is not a big town compared to others. We should be concerned about sex offenders, especially ones that have violated the terms of their parole, now living among us. It is our best defense to know where these people are and to keep our children safe. True, there are other registered sex offenders in town. The difference, as far as I know, is that this one has violated the terms of his parole and showed signs of violence after doing prison time. Tell Jessica Lunsford's father that he didn't need to know that a resisted sex offender was living next door.

Mark Lunsford needed to know his own son is a child molester. Joshua, who is an adult that was a little over 4 years older than his child victim got one year probation and 10 days in jail for putting his hand in the pants of a 14 year old child. Other children not yet in their teens may spend their lives on the registry, but not Mark Lunsfords son. Find a better example when you want to prove a point.

Please post your source of mis-information regarding recidivism of sex offenders. It is much lower than most other crimes. Look up stats on department of justice. Time to stop pulling stats out of your rear end and start dealing with facts. Don't be frightened. Knowledge will do you no harm.

Actually, I just looked that up and you are right. How appalling - I never heard about that. A bad example indeed, but my point is still the same. If I have kids I would like to know that there is a registered sex offender in the neighborhood so I can take extra precautions. Thanks for the information.

Are you the same Brad that the Ct State Police are looking for in connection with internet threats against this individual that you keep posting information about? They have posted numerous messages on this forum for you to contact them.
