Where do I even begin with this? Its a growing problem worldwide. Pediophiles....the laws arent strict enough. Short of castration, I dont see it ending either. I feel badly for the family. How do you go around in life wanting to rape young children when you have children of your own? Perverts...sick and sadistic...end of story.

Now we know why the DOT inspectors are too busy to inspect the catch basins on the troubled I-84 project because they are too busy picking-up little boys! What will Gov. Rell do about this situation?

I bet the State makes this guy head of DCF. At 49, his skills have not been realized yet. Now with the publicity, the state bureacracy will promote him into a management position.

The picture looks like a man who is just realizing he has thrown his life away.

OMG! His poor family. Can you imagine? You have to wonder about the Fire Police, teens who volunteer to direct traffic during fire calls.

If only a small percent of these wackos get caught, I can only imagine how many follow through and don't get caught

There is more to it than was reported here. It turns out that the guy "arranged to meet a 14-year-old boy for sex on the Internet in Unionville Wednesday while he was on state time in his full-time job as a Department of Transportation permit inspector" and "State DOT spokesperson Judd Everhart confirmed that Boutin is a 28-year employee of the agency who was on the clock and driving his state-issued vehicle at the time of his arrest."

Your tax dollars at work. State sponsored pedophilia!

I support this man and his love for little boys. We need to pass a bill that accepts gay and lesbian marrages and allow them to marry so they can adopt children of their own. This incident should give proof that this concept is a possiblity.
Gay marriage has nothing to do with this. The man is a pedophile and he attempted to rape a child. Rape is rape regardless of the genders.

Wow, what a great day to be a fireman. Thank you so much for expanding our trusted public entity position to more and more families. Next time I go into a burning house and the kid is hiding in the closet, do I wonder if he's scared of me or the fire. Rot in jail, Jack-ass.

This issue has nothing to do with being heterosexual, homosexual, gay marriage, gay adoption, or whatnot.

The issue "is, as it is" regardless of sexual orientation.

The vast majority of us upstanding, tax-paying,(straight and GAY) Americans...respect that it is against the law to have interactions with individuals that are underage.

This by far is not a "gay" issue. Let's keep it that way.

I am as well priviledged to be a firefighter here in CT.

The only good thing about this is that no child was injured and the piece of sh*% is off the streets.

I was stunned when I found out about Jack. Its a little scary for me to think that, I am his oldest daughters age, i went to school with her and even went to their house when i was not even 10. I feel for his daughters and his wife. He need to rot. And i hope that Mrs. Boutin leaves his disgusting sorry ass!

First off let me say that Jack has done some very good things for the community. I am thinking if this is all true something snapped upstairs. I have been doing a lot of research on people who abuse and have found that most of the time they were abused themselfs. This is a very scary thing and these people need HELP not to rot in a jail where there is rape going on daily. I do see everyones concern but we need to find ALL the facts first.I am so very glad that this was a set up and not a real 14 yr old boy.Maybe this is an answer from a higher power for help..I feel that the internet lures people into things sometimes. Ever read some of the banner ads. "young teens waiting for you now" or "young girls looking for a date" It is all over the place. I do pray for Jack and his family and am hopping that it is a wrong charge and if it is true he gets the help he desperately needs. I guess it would be different if YOU were the person being accused. Dont say ME ? NEVER! You never know.
