Shouldn't be tolerated
I read in the paper that if anyone should harass, intimidate or threaten Mr. Kostek it will not be tolerated. But wouldn't worrying about my daughter walking from her school to the YMCA be harassing, intimidating and threatening to me? This should not be tolerated. They need to find a new home for Mr. Kostek.
Sick and tired
It seems that Steve King, the officer with the Department of Corrections, is more concerned about how sex offender Anthony Kostek is treated than how his victims were treated. I am sick and tired of seeing sexual predators come off as "poor victims of society" while the true victims and the potential threat of future victims is ignored. The police are fooling themselves by allowing this sexual predator to live near a school and the YMCA. We as parents are supposed to protect our children. How can we do this when our pleas are ignored and our concerns go unheeded?
