Alert issued after girl is questioned by man driving a tan van in Remsenburg

Mar 10, 2010 1:46 PM

Parents in the Remsenburg/Speonk School District received an alert from school officials last week after a middle school-aged student told police that she was questioned by a man driving a tan van on the evening of Monday, March 1.

A girl who lives in Remsenburg, and attends Westhampton Beach Middle School, was walking her dog on South Phillips Avenue at around 5:20 p.m. that evening when the man pulled up alongside her and began asking her personal questions, according to Remsenburg/Speonk School District Superintendent Katherine Salomone.

The girl’s mother filed a report with Southampton Town Police, Dr. Salomone said.

On Tuesday, March 2, the school district issued the alert via e-mail and phone to district parents asking that they keep an eye out.

On Wednesday, March 10, police said they were still investigating the incident, but could not divulge further information.

where do you propose moving it to though? Another district...just make it someone else's problem? Put other people's children in danger?

I say we take all those people, tie a rope around their you-know-whats and drag them down county road 39, slow then fast. That would take care of those perverts. I remember being able to go all over Southampton as a kid, never had to worry about predators. They should be damaged badly and die slowly.

I also fondly remember a time before the arrival of wealth, and influence.
When we didn't have all these domestic issues, overdevelopment, and overpopulation.
And, there's no putting the genie back in the bottle, or wishing it away.
I don't know what we need, but I know that society is broken...

To LovedHerTown : The speed on 39 is 35 miles per hour . Remember , two wrongs don't make a right .

I think he was referring to the stabbing.

I am so proud of this girl for recognizing danger, running and telling an adult. I am happy that the mother reported it to the police and that the School District is supporting this family.

for real 35 MPH is not going to do the job.... Maybe if we raised the speed limit up to something more reasonable like 50 MPH we could get the job done and get to work on time....Im just saying

Now that it's 35, most people only do about 50.
When it was 45, they used to do about sixty past OTB, and LaPizziaola...

Just KILL all the Pedophiles!

I think a more humane solution is in order.

CASTRATION!!

As a father of three young daughters, It is quite evident that rehabilitating these animals does not work. The sick minded temptation will always be there in the back of their minds. There is no other solution but to EXTERMINATE these sick bastards and make society a little safer. I'm sure every father will agree with me that if anyone does their child harm, the only response they will feel is to commit murder regardless of right or wrong.
Castration should just be the begining!

Gee, what a courageous and blood-thirsty bunch -- from behind the anominity of your Internet connections!

Y'all must be far-to-the-Right Republicans.

I concur.. And, to add... Knowing the psychological side of pedophilia (having studied Psych extensively in college, including Abnormal Psych..), it is a cycle of abuse just like most. Pedophiles were often abused as children, and/or feel they have been robbed of their innocence, and feel the need to "return the favor" in kind...

..At least they still are obviously driving around vans.. And haven't upgraded to anything else yet...
