Saw this story on Masslive and had to do a double take:
Contrary to a recent posting on Craigslist, the Springfield Jewish Community Center is not looking for a new executive director, much less one with a GED and “incompetent decision-making skills.” The fake ad, posted on March 4, resulted in real consequences for Jeremy D. Thayer, who now faces two criminal charges in Springfield District Court. Thayer, 37, of Hadley, pleaded not guilty last week to identity fraud in connection with the fake job posting, plus failing to notify authorities that, as a Level 2 sex offender, he found new employment at the community center.
Wait……what??? This guy is working at a community center with children, and he’s a level 2 sex offender? Did they like, forget to do a simple background search?
Questioned by police, he admitted posting the fake ad on Craigslist, but denied responsibility for a bomb threat at the center the day before. A note discovered in the locker room forced evacuation of the Dickinson Street center on March 3 as police and fire investigators searched the building. Nothing was found during the search. The next day, the fake Craigslist post appeared, seeking candidates for the executive director’s job and saying all applications should be sent to Michael Paysnick, the center’s current director.
As stated in the fake ad, the center would prefer candidates with some administrative experience, plus a “keen mind for saving money and cutting corners when necessary,” according to the police report. Mandatory requirements included incompetence in decision-making, a high school graduate equivalency degree and an ability to deal with “rising security problems,” the post noted. Thayer, a janitor at the center, emerged as a suspect as Springfield police investigated the bomb threat and fraudulent post. During the investigation, police discovered that Thayer was a Level 2 sex offender who must notify Hadley police whenever he changes jobs, according to the report, which said he failed to report taking a job at the JCC in Springfield.
So somehow this guy miraculously gets a job scrubbing toilets in a place where kids come every day, despite his shady past and failure to register as a sex offender at work, and what does he do? Posts a hilarious prank ad on Craigs List. Way to keep a low profile dipshit.
Anyway, why is this winner a level 2 sex offender anyway? Well according to a bunch of people who all messaged us about this guy and claim to be victimized by him, he is one bad hombre. Here’s what they tell us:
- He taped himself masterbating on film then placed the dvds inside cars that had windows opened
- I was personally victimized by this creep at 17 .. and was chased with an ax.. this guy is the real Ted Bundy. Nice guy with skeletons in his closet ready to be exposed
- Hello, this guy Jeremy Thayer who is level 2 sex offender lives in adult day care and works at a theater with young adults, he got arrested for beating my cousin a few years back and they found child porn on his computer. Why is he allowed to work in theater with children? We notified the theater yet no response.. WESTFIELD THEATER!
- This guy has a rap sheet … attempted murder, attempted murder by strangulation, kidnapping, assault and attempted murder on a female, class 2 sex offender…not to mention filming himself masturbating and putting it on a city official’s car. Just charged last week of some anti-semitic stuff, violation of probation. For the past two years he has lived at his parents business Thayercare, around a bunch of handicapped people , leaving the state as he chooses, acting in Westfield theatre group around kids. The state keeps “messing up” investigations conveniently as his parents keep a steady flow of cash going out. He has been caught with child porn more than once, has never registered his address nor jobs with his parole/ probation officer, and is known to go online to sex-talk males and females.
- He just finished a play. He has not told them that he’s a sex offender. I was a a victim of his. I knew him for a long time he never disclosed to me that he was a sex offender either. I didn’t find out till he tried to kill me. I have moved 5 times, he has 27 violations of restraining order. When I was with him he did work at a theater in Amherst. I remember doing a play The Wizard of Oz, they had a lot of children there, little kids mind you. I did not know he was a sex offender. He was abusive too. I was lucky to service but i fear for the people around this creep.
So we looked up this guy on the Google machine and couldn’t find much. But we were sent the old school hard copy newspaper clippings from one of his various incidents, that shows that he threatened to kill his girlfriend, and choked and beat her with a dog leash while they were delivering newspapers:
Can’t make shit shit up.
And we checked out his Facebook page, and it seems to confirm everything these alleged victims said about his association with the Westfield Theatre Group, since there’s pictures of him acting in various Westfield Theater Group productions all over it:
Anyway, how the hell does this happen? How can a sex offender go under the radar like this and get a job around kids? Luckily for society he’s a nudnik of epic proportions and he blew his cover by pulling the ol’ “we’re looking for a director with a GED” trick on his boss, and he probably won’t be working there again any time soon. Hey here’s an idea – put this mother fucker in jail where he belongs.
