What do the "punk kids" have to gain by lying? If the man is innocent, then he'll be proven innocent. If he's guilty, then there will be evidence to support that. Let the judicial system do what it was designed to do. Plus, the guy was arrested in '03 on the same charge, so...?

Hey all this is a bunch of bull when he was arrested in 03 the guy that said Ron assault him is a mental patient and on some serious meds and was checked out by doctors and found no evidence of any assault. this is a big vendetta that the chief of police in Silver Lake has against Ron. Ever since the 2003 incident and i feel that the police threatened the boys Weds night after they stopped the boys for being out after curfew. Both boys were high on pot and they both have records and on probation. So they had to do something to save their own butts from going to jail. The boys were let go that night and not charged with possession of pot or for the bowl on them either. The police have been almost like stalking Ron and harassing him for years for nothing. They say they r doing their jobs but they r not doing it in a professional way either they r threatening all the teens with charges of obstructing justice because they will not help the police out on their fishing exposition. Silver Lake police chief is trying to charge the wording around of all the kids that wont help him with the case on Ron because he knows its all bull.

Well this is just another example of how residents in silver lake prefer to hide their heads in the sand verses protect children who are preyed on easily due to social circumstances. Shame on every resident that has allowed this to go on for over 20 years! No one of normal mentality would be allowing teens to party in their home unless they were benefiting from it in some way. This is apparently a very sick individual, a serial rapist that has been allowed to thrive in our quiet little town. Perhaps the children he abused were deliquents, but no one deserves to have be injured to the degree of requiring reconstructive surgery. To those of you defending him I ask ask what are you hiding? Another question to ask why did this mans house catch on fire of 2008? Hopefully, there will be a thorough investigation
more disgusted than you

I agree 100% with you!!! WHERE ARE THE PARENTS whose kids frequented his house???? Are you that STUPID to let your teenage SON go to some STRANGERS home???? Don't ya MAYBE wonder WHY he had teenage boys there??????? HELLOOOOOOO? Parents, you need to do your homework, and know where your kids are, and who they are with ALL THE TIME!!!!!!
If parents were more responsible, and actually CARED about their kids, there wouldn't be as many perverts getting away with what they are! THINK ABOUT IT....I'm JUST as angry at the PARENTS!!!!!
Also, I would hardly call SILVER LAKE a quiet little town.....too many people hiding too many things....remember Jerry Schenning??????????
Cant be more disgusted

I agree with "more disgusted than you". The parents, the school, the police and village residence are all to blame. The parents should spend more time with their kids and start asking the important questions (who, what, where and when). These parents need to be more involved and stop being so lazy!! The schools also are to blame. I am sure none of these kids were college bound so the schools just push them to the side. At Riverview you can not participate in sports if you have two D's. I understand that to a point but some kids are just not capable. These kids can't even watch a basketball game without a parent there. Do you think these types of parents will attend a game with their sons? I don't think so. Maybe if these kids had another outlet such as basketball or baseball they would not turn to drugs, alcohol, or pedophiles. The police in this town need to stop being bullies to these kids and start mentoring them. Maybe if they had someone to look up to they would not feel the need to find a 71 year old man as a father figure. The police also need to stop worring so much about the speed traps they set up and start focusing on some of the other illegal activities that are going on, such as the drug dealers and suspected pedophiles. This town needs to be cleaned up. The residence in this town also need to stop looking the other way. I always wondered about all the suicides that happen here. Are they the cause of drugs or pedophiles???

This pillar of society has been doing this for years....I'm sure his list of victims is quite long. It is about time someone finally had the guts to stand up and report him. The rest of his victims need to unite and make sure he rots in prison. Ron making this a personal / political issue is absurd. Ron is a predator, preying on the troubled youth of western Kenosha County. What a waste of human life!!

Thank God that SICK PERVERTED OLD MAN finally got what is comming to him. Ever since I have been riding a bike my parents told me about him and that I should stay away from him.....Now that that I have a child of my own I hope that sicko spends the rest of his creepy life behind bars.......

After hearing that Ron was finally caught after so long and so many accusations it just makes me sick to my stomach. We as parents, mentors, teachers, etc. have or should have been taught about all the warning signs to look for in order to protect our children from the disgusting pediphiles in our towns and cities. Ron may be a sick and twisted individual, but he is incredibly smart as to who to prey on, how to get people to turn on eachother and how to point fingers away from him and at the REAL men and women who are trying to help make our homes safer places to live. Does is not concern anyone that Ron is trying to point fingers at the police officers in silver lake? Perhaps they can do more to be better mentors for the troubled and angry children who need guidance, but the reason they have been "stalking" (as stated in an earlier comment) is probably because they knew of his sickness but just didn't have the proof to convict him at that time because more victims haven't come foward. And for needing more mentors, how is it that the few young people that have come foward to speak of Ron's filth are being frowned upon? Troubled or not, those young kids have nothing to lose or gain from admitting the truth about him. I applaud those who have come foward and faced the pain and imbarrasement they have had to face! I just hope more of those individuals have to courage to come foward so we can put the FILTHY AND DISGRACEFUL being away and protect anyone else from having to go through what so many have gone through already!

And Ron, how DARE you! I hope and pray you get what you deserve. Perhaps someday you will see the pain you have caused to so many innocent people! You are poor excuse of a human being and I pitty your family and pray for them as well. You SICKO!

I love how everyone has convicted the old man without a trial yet? Wow how american some people are!!!! I can only pray those types have the same done to them ie...... get accused of something terrible ,and you have'nt a clue ..People talk ,and BS walks .. You are the sicko's for sure ...If you watched that chief of police he looked pretty desperate for imaginary victims to come forth.......The police don't have anything with that kinda plee.
