    You know what would help? If the town didn’t have Pedophiles every other house on Fredonia Ave. alone. If there’s any child reading my comment make sure you walk with a few friends NO MATTER where you go and if you and your friends encounter any of these people. Make sure to get a hold of the police and try to get a licenses plate number or anything without walking up to the vehicle. Also speak to any Officer except Officer Davell (or however you spell his name). I don’t trust him or his history, neither do most of the people around town.

      Why are you not doing some outreach or something? Totally serious. I don’t live there, but if I did, I would want my kids to have this information. This sounds like a horrible place.
