:::: UPDATE :::: St. Paul perv janitor Walter Happel allegedly got away with sexually abusing kids for 30 years

Walter Happel, a Newport resident and longtime janitor who most recently worked at the Linwood Monroe Arts Plus School in St. Paul, faces a felony count of interference with privacy for allegedly sticking his perverted head under a bathroom stall while a 12-year-old student was in there on February 19.

But as investigators looked into that incident, a number of additional allegations of sexually inappropriate conduct involving Happel, boys, and bathrooms came to light. Below the jump we run down the five creepiest incidents contained in the criminal complaint.

5. This is the incident that cost Happel his job and could land him behind bars for up to two years (KP-L is the student):

4. Happel allegedly had steroids and other bizarre substances in a secret room only discovered after he was placed on administrative leave:

3. Turns out the bathroom incident wasn't an isolated one -- not by a long shot:

In light of this news of yet another mishandling, it is clear this is an ongoing and widespread issue for St. Paul Public Schools and need to be addressed. While most likely 95% of St. Paul Public School staff are amazing and care for our children, what happens with the 5% that are ill and harming children? Created by a combination of "strong" unions, lacking district policy, and a historically ignorant society on what child abuse looks like and what to do about it, we have a school district that is not looking out for our children. 

Upon close examination of the details this article, it looks like this man could have been stopped three years ago - atleast - if school officials would have listened to parents and children and taken proper action to protect children. Instead, others were harmed. How many more children were harmed by this man? How did he get to this advanced stage of having a secret room with stimulating gel in a public school building populated with our children? How did no staff member in the building detect and intervene on this man? 

This not the first time St. Paul Public Schools has mishandled adults harming children...look at the startling pattern in this petition....

How did this guy get a job in a school in the first place? So much for background checks.

PS2: 

I don't intend to defend this guy.... but.... chances are he was a victim himself as a child, which bent him this way....   ..you know.. how weird... to be peering into bathroom stalls at kids.... .

   so all the mercy and sympathy you have for the current child victims... remember to extend to him, for being a past child victim..(I'm speculating) .

   again, if he's committed crimes, he should pay.

    but once a kid is harmed, they often harm others, ; and some of the blame has to go back to the ones who , well, ... life is complicated..'

and of course, the guilt is doubled, for the offenders,

 Jesus said, at one point, better they had a millstone around their neck and thrown in the water... and that wasn't being mean, or overly punitive, it as probably being merciful.

who wouldn't rather die than hurt kids that way?

PS: of course, investigate the heck out of this situation and make sure he didn't ever harm a child. and if so, prosecute big time.

 and make sure the kids are safe.

sorry folks, but on this one, I'm on the side of: it's not illegal in America to be a perv.

it's illegal to hurt people, especially children.

   but leering and making vaguely creepy comments should not be a crime.

It should get him fired from any job at a school or any place where children are part of the deal. 

    but if what we read here is, he never touched a kid, never importuned one. never suggested anything, but was, it appears, a perv who probably loved himself a little too much in moments in the secret room by the furnace, and jerked up his overly large eyebrows at boys and made himself available, shall we say..... best say is to take such guys against the wall, make it clear if they ever, ever, do something, their rump is grump.. and fire them from said jobs.... we would be doing everyone a good thing.. teach kids to scorn such crap... and point their fingers and run them out of a school...but it's not a felony, not a crime... just perviness that, perhaps, can be caught, stopped, and reformed with some good human kindness and strength and no bullshit...

    remember when we were all young?    kick some ass, maybe, don't make a federal case out of it....

remember, he was someone's blue-eyed little boy once, too; as we all were...

Redact the kids' birthdates. Not okay at all to have that info included.

This is my kid's school. W. T. F. I am most concerned about the previous allegations not being followed up on. Reporting is mandatory when there are allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior. There is a parent meeting at the school Monday night, I want to know why he was still at the school.

Let's wait Heather Schuetz until he harms a boy, then what? Sorry I've been a victim. If someone could have stopped it maybe I wouldn't be such a fucked up person in some aspects of my life.

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? After working 10 years in the court system, sexual misconduct cases I've seen have only received guilty verdicts from juries about half of the time. There's a reason for that. I'm not saying this definitely didn't happen or is unbelievable, but an arrest and charges don't make someone guilty. Remember when this story first came out and charges were brought? The media ripped him a new one. Could we withhold judgment until the facts flesh themselves out a bit? http://www.twincities.com/sports/ci_25027597/todd-hoffner-fired-mankato-coach-hired-by-minot

Uh, City Pages Minneapolis --- You may want to redact the dates of birth on these kids. They're still minors. Initials and DOB is too much info.

I can't wait for the other Buzzfeed-style post about this guy. "What Kind of Kinky Janitor Are You? Take Our Test!"

Exactly. And, not just background checks - but also how he passed internal SPPS district investigations and the asst. principal and school counselor at Linwood - who knew of issues and did not say anything -  the school district knew about many incidents with this man as they were on his record and still let him be in the building - that's the huge WTF - SPPS practices for handling incidents of adults harming children in schools is highly negligent and alarming and in my opinion very complicit in this abuse.
