You should be ashamed of yourself to say something about someone you don't even know. He is not the type of person who would ever do anything like this. I'm sure once they get further into the investigation you will see all charges will be dropped.

I have known the Rypkas well for several years. They are community-minded, kind, honest, decent people facing a nightmare. They need and deserve our love, support and prayers until this is sorted out.

I do know the Rypkas and I was shocked and dismayyed by the whole idea of him doing that but I do have trouble believing that the State PD and Westchester DA would ruin the lives of one of their own on a hunch alone they must have had some serius evidence in their favor before they would make this a public issue

It wouldn't be the first time an over zealous DA has tried a case just for the publicity and wont be the last! Also, just because the police say it happened doesn't make it so. They have been known to tailor evidence to what suits the case (if anyone knows that, Tony probably does). This will inevitably do nothing more then cost the Rypkas a boat load of money to defend his innocents.

I think it all depends on what kind of porn they are talking about. If the picture is a girl under 15 or 16 years of age that is just sick and twisted. The problem with the law is, a girl who is 17 is still considered child porn, and that is bull shit. Take a look around at all the girls who look like their in ther 20s and their only 15 and 16. If a 16 year old robs a bank their charged as an adult right ? But then when they have sex with someone over 18 their still a child ? What a load of bull shit. I even catch myself looking at girls walking down the street that might only be 16. I mean shit, if the girls are going to show their boobs and ass, it's hard not to look. Child porn and child molestors are people fucking 5 and 10 year olds. So give this cop a break if it comes back that it's a 16 year old. Most 16 year olds have sex anyway in high school, drink, smoke pot, and lie to have sex with someone older. We need to start looking into the lives of our kids and stop accusing adults. Sometimes it's the teen who actually lies to get what they want. Just like I talked about earlier with the bank robbing situation. They know the difference between right and wrong !

You have hit the nail on the head!!

We all know what child abuse is.Its so obvious! The law in many Western Countries stinks of double standard. The USA as usual tops the list for most states.

Lets go after proper Peados not people looking at teenage bodies. Every day I see grown men nearly crash into lamp posts and trees while they glance at attractive young teenages / adults.

I say if the porn is of young children? lock him up and throw away the key. An ex cop in prison for this kinda crap will be suffering for many years. I Feel bad for his wife and children.
If the porn is questionable? He must have pissed someone off.
It is in GODS hands now ladies and gentleman. I dare not judge. Most people have done things that could have been misinterpreted by others. The only two that know 100% are This Man and GOD.
God Bless His Family.

With out a doubt this is an over zeolous DA. Janet Difiore is unfit to be DA. She is not part of the solution but part of the problem. We really need a good DA in Westchester County. If we had one, half the politicians in our county would be under indictment along with her and her husband.

The pictures were of babies! and children ranging in ages 2-11. Sickening images of young children being abused in horrendous ways. This man is sick and I hope he gets the max! If you don't, you should sit inside that court room on Monday and see for yourselves. He needs help so God help us!

He's a pedophile freak who operated under the eyes of the stupid morons who run that department for a long time without being caught . He deserves to be put into population and have his butt reamed in the same manner as he wishes he could to those little boys he stares at ! Another freak taken off the streets !!

Yo Kris I agree with you 100 percent dog. These young girls out here are off the hook. They playin with our heads, runnin around half dressed tryin to catch an older man. The shit is all good until someone finds out though. So ask for I.D. from these girls you meet or take the risk of being labled as a pervert........PEACE
