What an ignorant thing to say that its not normal for a man to love children and want to be around them. I guess every teacher, coach, and counselors are all molesters too. Damn fools

That is not what was meant. It did not mean a teacher or coach or a counselor. This man was a neighbor who took too much of an interest in young girls. He lived with his adult children; and when they moved away, he stayed. He took up residence in another neighbor's basement. His relationship with these girls was not normal. It was too intense. I witnessed it. It was creepy.

I've heard rumors that he has 'eluded' police that led them on a chase through Schwenksville and that he has skipped out on bail and took off? Not sure how credible this information is. Does anyone know? All I know is that the hearing keeps being continued.

Well looky here...Seems that Jim's bail was revoked and he is being held. Wonder why!? It could only mean he's innocent and that someone set him up.
