It is amazing that everyone is quick to pass judgement when facts are not presented. I can't believe that someone would look at someones picture and think that one, he is gay... two, that he must be trash since he resides in Wood River.
I would imagine that there has never been any sort of false sense of identity that has occured to you? I know this man and he is the VICTIM and he has been falsely accused. Of course, once he is proven innocent no one will apologize, everyone will move on. However, he will be scared for the rest of his life. The Media outlet should gather all the facts on all cases prior to reporting on their story lines. People rely on their information to be the gospel and factual... they can't think for themselves in most cases and believe what they hear and read. Kassidy is a very upstanding individual and the most honest man that wears rose colored glasses and believed that the world was kind...

Why at age 27 would he be working part-time at the YMCA taking care of little girls and coaching a girl's soccer team???? Makes me wonder.

Did you ever stop to think that these are his part time jobs outside of his full time career. What is there to wonder about? He is a man than loves the game of soccer and wants to help other children achieve their aspirations and goals. So is this what you think about all coaches and trainers?

I have to say I am not shocked by this situation. My children use to attend summer camp at that Y. At that time I found the director and her daughter to be two of the nuttiest people I have ever met. I also use to use their pre/post school program. Some of the staff for that program were less than desirable. When obvious staff errors were pointed out to the director she would become hostile and take things out on the children/parents. I hope this Y has changed directors since 2010, because it is obvious she can not hire or maintain proper staff. This YMCA has the potential to have a wonderful summer camp, it needs better management. I should point out, this Y did have some very kind staff members but the bad ones just ruined the experience for the kids.

Silly me, I was confusing Edwardsville Y with CMT Y. I had problems with CMT not Edwardsville. Not sure if it makes it better or worse??? Do all the YMCA's have problems?
