Kinda sounds the same as Gays and Lesbians, they are nice and lure you into thinking their sexual perversion is normal. Next pedophiles will be "born pedophiles" its in the DNA right?

All Sexual perverts should be and will be descriminated against in my book. They all have the same demon. Dont fool yourselves into thinking that just because a fag wants to get in the pants of another man who is 18+ that the perversion stops there. Our society has no clue of what demons we give liberty to.

Dont believe me , just continue to watch this sort of crap continue to happen. Demons dont descriminate, your kid is next.

"Demon"? Hey "Anonymus",,,,that's the most ridiculous thing anybody has written here, in an 11 page blog filled with poorly written, ill informed garbage. Your ignorance is breathtaking, to say the least.

Bobby was truly a very complex person with two distinctive memories of him. To many, Bob was a sweet, funny man who could not possibly do anything wrong or suspicious. He was the pillar of the community who was above reproach. His supporters still want to hold on to that fading memory of him, The Good Bob. They should get their own web site where they can control the content, everybody will only be allowed to praise the Dacey's, that is only if they believe the bogus heart attack story.
Others elect to remember the other side of Booby Dacey, The Bad Bob. That is the one who abused his position of being a teacher to prey on young boys of puberty age; No he was not(helping those poor boys by showing them love and affection. he was doing long lasting damage to their emotional well being. Many feel cheated out of Bobby not answering for his sins by taking the easy way out (suicide of some shape and form). There are many who got off the legal hook with his timely passing.
His supporters are always going to take exception to his detractors and vice versa.
It would be theraputic for his suppoters to form a support group so that they might soemday come to grips with the fact that Bobby the Great was really a monster after all.

What is/was wrong with Waltham. St Jude's Church had three priests involved in the church scandal. Mayor candidate Joe Allesandro was convicted of a similar crime in the 1980's. Now Dacey......He is dead.....Thank god he can not molest any other kids now.....Where is his mentor Joe Allesandro now......???? Hopefully he can not molest any other kids now either. Wasn't it a flag that he was a drama teacher and football coach... Those activities have never been brought together in the history of the world....

Innocent until provent guilty. Seems a little hard to believe that kids that age would fall for a mafia masseuse story or even go to this guys home. The story sounds a little fishy. Lets see how they do proving it.

Knew Dacy so well, even had a nick name for me. I always thought there was something strnage about him, always concerned about how close he was to the kids. He used to by this kid i knew like hundred dollar stereos and stuff. And tomaissian, weirdo. i always thought it was strange, glad i wasnt in that cluster.

There once was a swell teacher named Dace who turned out to be quite a disgrace. He was a funny man like the riddler when really he was just a diddler. He fooled all of his friends and coworkers and then they made a mockery of the criminal justice system. Anyone who believes that stupid heart failure story is indeed in need of a brain that functions. Robert did a service to his family, friends and associates by checking out early. I hope that his soul goes to the hottest spot in hell and burn, baby , burn....

Bob Dacey will not have a trial but reading many of the postings on this forum it appears that he has already been tried and convicted by many.
This is a trend that has affected not only this community but our society as a whole. Too many of us are quick to rush to judgement about many things we know nothing about except what has been fed to us by sound bites and images flashing on TV.
No matter which way you weigh in on this it is just sad all around.
If the boys this allegedly happened to keep hearing that their lives have been ruined, and that they will have to carry this with them for the rest of their lives then it will become a self fulfilling prophecy.
Many bad things happen to people in life, yet those who come through horrible ordeals would prefer to be thought of as survivors, not victims.
If this is true then I hope these boys through counseling with professionals and love and support of their family and friends will come through as survivors. That would be the first step towards their healing.
Only one side of this entire situation has been told and retold so many times in the local paper that many of us could probably recite it verbatim. Yet none of the facts reported will be tried for veracity in a court of law, yet for many they stand as an absolute.
In a country where Paris Hilton gets more attention than other things happening in this world it is not surprising, but shows just how far an abyss we have fallen into.
To the family and friends of Bob, I hope they can find their peace in this by remembering the kind and good things. They need to begin healing as well.
Dacey killed himself before the trial. He was to much of a coward to face the punishment for what he did. Dacey was a sick individual. How can people be mourning the death of him? It says a lot about the city of Waltham.

Disgusted,
You must derive a great sense courage slamming an innocent hard working family with false statements, zero facts and ridiculous rumors from behind an anonymous computer.
I think it is amazing that the only people left on this blog have resorted to attacking Bob's family as a way to keep it going. It also amuses me that they believed everything written in the paper about the case, including details about what happened and were he was supposedly placed on house arrest yet choose to completely ignore the fact that it was reported he died of a massive heart attack.(which a state supervised autopsy proved.) How convenient people like "Disgusted" can pick and choose what it is they believe as fact to support their hate rants...
He died of a massive heart attack from overdosing on pills you idiot. He killed himself and you still don't think he is guilty. I played football for this monster for four years. He was always the last coach out of the locker room. The thought of him watching us still creeps me out. The whole team used to joke about him being a pedophile. There where a lot more victims that have not admitted to being molested. Everyone who defends this man is pretty sick as well.

He was my drama teacher...and boy did he have drama....always thought he was a little "off" just the way he favored the popular jock kids and cheerleaders as if they were best friends. His mouth was obsurd talking to kids like they were off the street and half the time i hated his class cause it was all about him his attitude and the ppl he gave attention to nothing really TEACHING wise just the teacher all the kiss asses went to when they needed a sarcastic laugh. He was rude and yes i was shocked when i heard this but some of the kids affected were in my graduating class and i always wondered why is a teacher inviting students to his house??? he was also my neighbor ....creepy...

Of course he did all those things for the city and the people that gains people's trust makes people think he is good person but not every pedophile looks like a scumb bag , or is a crack head some pedophiles hide it better! doing those things to those boys no matter how good of a guy on the outside he was not a good person on the inside and that's where it counts !

Bobby Dacey has been getting a break in Waltham his whole life, that is not going to change anytime soon. He graduated from WHS(class of 75) and shortly after college he was hired in Waltham. He is related to the former police chief, Francis A. Dacey which might explain why he got favored treatment then and now. The blue wall of the police dept. always makes sure that they protect their own.
chool Departments are well known for spin control that has little to do with justice and more to do with covering tracks.
Joe Doyle, the disgraced hockey coach from Natick was caught in an internet sting and did a year in jail. Bobby Dacey will have his day in court
but it is doubtful that he will serve any time at all. I hope that I am wrong but those of you that have lived in Waltham for some time will not be surprised.....
Actually, Charles, the now-deceased Bobby Dacey was the nephew of former Waltham mayor Richard F. Dacey, who was also a former Waltham City Council president and maintained a longtime law practice in Waltham. My late father retained Dacey as his family attorney. In fact, was Richard Dacey who handled my dad's will and probate in 1990.
I am unsure if the Francis Dacey (longtime Waltham police chief) to whom you referred was also related to Bobby Dacey. "Dacey" is not that uncommon a surname. I also knew two Delaneys (one, John B., was actually Richard Dacey's opponent in the mayoral race of 1965) who served on the Waltham City Council, and they were unrelated.
But I was surprised at the time of Bobby Dacey's legal mater the fact of his uncle having been a two-terms' Waltham mayor was never mentioned in the media. Then again, I have long ago realized how our society seems to suffer from cultural and historical amnesia. And part of it is reporters, as with so many professionals seemingly functioning in our world, are not as competent as reporters were in previous eras of history. I catch mistakes in the media (broadcast and print) all the time, that at one time a good editor would have caught. Our short attention-spanned, rap-infested culture is decaying on many fronts. Just look at what lives in the White House now!
Bobby Dacey's parents seemed very nice, respectable people. I recall when my mother died that Mrs. Dacey (Bobby's mother, then head of the St. Jude's ladies' organization called "Sodality") brought some food to our home on the day of my mom's funeral. So just because a family has one member who made a mistake shouldn't taint the reputation of an otherwise fine family.
