What I think is wrong is he has arrested many people for doing things to little kids in the same aspect as himself and he is doing the same thing. I am not saying they shouldn't go to jail I am saying how I'd he have the right to lock them people up and yet him do the same stuff. Did he think it was ok because was a cop??

He knew what he was doing was wrong and im sure he felt weird locking others up for the same thing but what was he suppose to say? "Hey i cant lock you up because i do the same thing!" ???

Their could be many reasons as to why he did this...but it all comes down to he is sick in the head.
He could be gay, and just couldn't come to terms with it his whole life and then it just came down to preying on the little boys.
They say that if your exposed to something then it can make you like stuff like that....its kinda like idle hands do the devils work. I'm not sure if i explained that right or not.
he could have been molested when he was a child, and thats why he became a cop to try to deal with his past memories, and then one day he just snapped inside and decided to prey on these poor little kids.
Who knows.
I still feel sorry for his wife or ex wife and his adopted kids,
they all were active in the community and he made it to where everytime someone sees them people gawk at them and stare at them...how sad...i seen it the other day how people gawk at them and whisper there's kens family...Its so sad that people aren't more mature and can't have more respect for them than what they do.
I hope and pray that their family can heal from this and people still accept them for them, because they had no part in what that pig did!!

Even though the boys have to deal with the haunting memories of the cop who took their innocents, they are hidden because of their age.
His family isn't hidden and have to deal with the public face to face everyday.

Your right and not only has the cop been branded, the family and kids have to. The only way they will ever have any peace is to move away where people do not know the story. He has humiliated his children his wife and the children he hurt. Maybe some day it will be forgotten by the town folk but it will always be a monkey on the backs of those he hurt.

I personally had several dealings with Mr. Thomlinson. When the info was released I was horrified to say the least. Let me just say, if it were my children involved, he would not have had the courtesy of calling the police and sitting in jail on taxpayer money all this time. I am disgusted and appalled that our judicial system allows people of this nature to continue to live in our community jails and prisons. Has anyone considered that his victims will be paying taxes to our grand state that will allow this man to be housed, fed, and taken care of in general by our medical system? That is a disgrace to all that I believe in as a US Citizen. However, it happens everyday....again, just my opinion.....
