What's it gonna take for our kids to be safe? I'm sick of it and if that weirdo even looks at my kids it will be the last time I promise. Let's just let him get away with it over and over:

Well apparently people are afraid to say much about it but I'm not. The little strange man that walks around town all the time, hangs out at the newspaper office, plays bagpipes, sorry I don't know what his name is exactly but I've heard him called several things lately. Anyway he has been molesting the children of Sedan and of course the law enforcement here has done nothing about it which is pretty par for the course in Chautauqua county. Anyway I'm sure this isn't meant to be a gossip column so please post your facts people and get the word out to other parents so they can be aware too. Some people really don't get out much, or they could work out of town and not hear about things like this since Chautauqua County is so good at keeping things hush hush.

his name is JOHN, do any of you know him? have you ever talked to him? or are you just like "oh he is not a cowboy and has long hair!!! he must be a child molester"

This crying wolf happened on Halloween night, on the street, with people around to witness. Yet the Hinkle boy's parents did not press charges, John was not arrested and no witness confirmed the childs statement!

This is not the 1st time this same boy said this about John & it was unfounded - it's a personal attack set out to ruin him & it's sad because a kid thinks he can go around and thrown things at an adult or hit him and then report molestation.

So stop beating around the bush and speak out or shut up.

Set Gossip Straight,
you are not setting gossip straight you are creating more gossip..I feel sorry for you, if it was someone you loved this had happened to maybe you would not be posting something this hurtful about a child you don't even know. Just because his family is not some rich prominent family in Sedan Kansas does not make the child a liar..The family have pressed charges and nothing is being done about it. You tell me what is wrong with that picture. The only thing that came out of this is the family had to move out of town because of what it had done to the child involved.
How do you know the child is lying, have u even talked to him yourself do you get up with him in the night when he wakes up with nightmares..Are you the one paying for the counseling sessions he has to go through or the medicine he now has to take..
If someone was doing the things to someone you love that this sick man has done to this child and other children, then maybe you would be more sympathetic to the situation, but all you wanna do is run your mouth about something you know nothing about.
Halloween was not the first night he hurt this child it had been going on for longer then you want to admit. It just happened to be the last straw on that night and the child finally broke down and told the truth about what had been going on.
If you were that age and someone threatened to kill you in your sleep or kill the ones you love if they tried to keep you apart would you tell. It messes with a childs mind. As a victim myself I know what this child has been through and is still going through and will for a long time to come.
I pray to god that nothing like this does happen to you or someone you love and if it has that someone as ignorant as you did not post something like this about you..

I will give both of you the fact that if this really happened I do sympathize with the child & family - but none of us will ever know.

And I can see how it would appear that I was siding with the man, I'm not. I just think it's crazy that people talk in circles as if it's taboo to use his name.

This man (and the other family) have issues, no one is perfect but how can we on Topix decide who is telling the truth? And I'm sorry but with witness that DO NOT confirm the story and no arrest then obviously there was not enough to the rumor.

even though i am not from sedan or was any where around when this was going on i know many facts of this story. And it upsets me greatly when i see people assuming things when they have no idea. Witnesses have come forward in this case. Evidence, very convincing evidence has been gathered! if the police can not make a case of that. Than who is anyone to say that an innocent child is making false accusations I know for a fact that there was no knowledge of any of this until halloween night! So if you don't know the facts maybe you should keep your mouth shut!

Ok well I don't claim to know any facts about this case other than I know the child's family did indeed quit their jobs and leave town. Seems the working class got the bums rush while the unemployed "accused molester" is still here living his life. What I do know for a fact is, this man was stumbling down the streets of sedan on Halloween night as drunk as he could be. He did in fact scream curse words and threats at a female who happened to be trying to leave her house that night to go back to work. She had done nothing other than try to pull away from the curb while he was walking by. That alone should have gotten him arrested for being a public drunk and causing a disturbance. What's wrong with this picture?

Yes halloween night was the first night we turned John in for molesting my son..I knew nothing until that night so where u r getting your facts I do not know.. Yes the police do need to do their jobs and arrest him for what he has done..My son is not lying about what has happened to him. It is not a debate and I would not be saying anything in reply but enough is enough.
We moved out of Sedan because of what has happened and my son did not feel safe any longer after telling the truth..Especially since John is still free to continue to live his life as if nothing has happened. Including walking by our house whenever he pleased.
Because of this my son is now in counseling and is far from being the same loving carefree CHILD that he was before any of this started.
I do not care whether he works or does not work molestation is molestation regardless of whether the male/female doing it works or not..
So please lets stop with all the back and forth on whether or not he is guilty and leave that up to the law to decide, but beings that it is Cq county no matter what he probably will remain free while my child continues to need help for what he has been through.

To Mom of Child Involved.... this debate will go on for months to come. Some of these posters are like a dog with a bone, and there is never enough because 'they know the facts' better than anyone.
