I think you're onto something. At 88, something doesn't seem right about this. I wonder if this old guy has a house or something. Kids nowdays know that making a statement, especially concerning someone that might be getting senile, can be very rewarding.

Bill, Chicago and the voice of reason from Wentzville, seem to have moved beyond the hysteria.

First, let's wait for the investigation to fill in some monster gaps in the story.

Something smells fishy here. Kids say the darndest things and have no idea of the life staining results of a false accusation. The kids may have truly been molested, but, let's hold off on the hanging and shooting until we have a handle on the facts.

I agree. The kids probably didn't like the guy and decided this was a "funny" thing to do. Look at the other stuff going on these days, especially the "little angels" who wanted to kill their teacher.

In the meantime, he probably sits in jail and his house is getting ransacked. If nothing is found, what does he have to return to? Even if he gets a good settlement from the parents and the state, by the time he collects, it will most likely be too late. I hope the police studied this very carefully before making their moves.

I just hope they don't "plant" stuff at his place to save their case.

a life sentence might only mean a few months. Shouldn't he be made a better example of? Maybe be tarred and feathered.

I think Bill and lmao might be right. I doubt an 88 year old man would all of a sudden start molesting kids.

I've known Chester my whole life and something about this doesnt seem right. He was one of the nicest sweetest old men you could meet, of course its always the last person you expect but in this case I believe someone is over exaggerating his eccentric ways.

His age is not material. The guy fits the pattern-he would walk around mass grabbing at all of the kids.I for one thought he was a complete phony. No normal man paws at all of the kids
