12 Back-to-School Scenarios That Give Parents and Kids Real Feelings

How Would You React If a Child Murderer Moved to Your Town?

Lots of parents search family watchdog sites to see if there are any predators in their community, but residents of a New Hampshire town were made well aware of the fact that a convicted child killer was settling on their soil. Parents in Chichester were outraged when a pastor in their community opened up his home to Raymond Guay who served 35 years in prison for multiple crimes. The New York Times report said:

Mr. Guay was convicted of killing a 12-year-old boy in Hollis, N.H., in 1973, chasing him into the woods before shooting him in the eye. After escaping from a state prison in 1982, he held two residents of nearby Concord hostage in their home. He was later sent to a federal prison in California, where he got in more trouble for stabbing an inmate in 1990.

Fearing for their safety, members of the community have invested in pricey home alarms and firearms despite an increase of police patrols.

Fashionista, I was thinking the exact same thing. Why isn't this man locked up for the rest of his life?!!!!!!

They won't listen until something happens again. It's horrible because something will happen or someone will take the law into their own hands.

WHY ON EARTH was a monster like this unleashed back into society?! Our judicial system is seriously effed if we allow someone like this back on the street. I would absolutely be agressively involved in a neighborhood movement to make him feel as unwelcome as possible.

lickety split — that is so scary and disturbing! How can the police not think he's a danger? I'm sorry you're having to deal with it.

I would be very angry and I'd do whatever it took to get him/her out of my neighborhood ASAP so my kids are safe.....

i am not a paranoid person and have never really given much thought about this until now. i just clicked on your link for the watchdog site and checked to see if there were any sexual predators in my neighborhood, thankfully there are only three in the entire town i live in and only one that is somewhat close, but i will avoid that street now. if one lived next door i would feel very uncomfortable...i would join a group like Skugirl said and try and get rid of the person.

well actually, we are dealing with this type of situation right now. on monday the police were parked outside my house (4 cars) watching a neighbor's house. after several hours they pulled guns from the trunks of their cars and busted down his door. apparently he had raped a woman there and held her for several hours, something he's done (according to the police) other times as well. he merts them on the internet and tells them he is a photographer or wants to be a sugar daddy. well he got away, and now the police are like "oh well, he's no danger to anyone in the neighborhood. if you see him give us a call. buh-bye". BULLSHIT! this guy is dangerous. i'm getting ready to put a sign on the fence of his house that reads "A Sexual Predator lives here. The (name of of city) police department says not to worry about it. If you have any questions call officer (name of the assigned officer who is blowing us all off) at this number ".
