      I sure hope that any of you that have commented on this matter never ever are put on jury duty in Kent County or in any jurisdiction for that matter. What ever happened to the presumption of innocence? None of you have any privileged information about Mr. VanderMolen’s past work record. This man has a greater intellect than all that have responded to this article. Thank god that I was never brought up on charges for every date gone wrong that I had in my lifetime. Please have an open mind. I have no use for any source of news media in Grand Rapids. Remember that there are three sides to every story. Yours, Mine, and the Truth.

    Investigate the city of Grand Rapids for not going public with what they knew of this guy. I hope they get a hold if his computers… He is a threat to the community…

      This has nothing to do with the city of Grand Rapids, it’s the crooked ass Kent County bitches that were misleading, and hiding this from the public!

    So I would hope that every single fucking case this sicko prosecuted will be retried, at the cost of Kent County! !!!!!!

  • Yup

    According to city employees who knew him, they say he was asked to step down instead of persuing charges for something he did. He has committed other crimes as well, but they did not want to prosecute and let him off hook again..
