Do you actually DO anything but stir up pots of trouble Valerie? You sound educated. You have plenty of info available to you. You could do so much more than just type to you tiny on-line local paper calling people, "dumb" & idiots." I'd still appreciate another forwarding of the link that you claim to have seen both jimmy's and my name on it, or at least tell me what it says. The link you posted says the page does not exist and though I googled our names together and Coventry police, etc I cannot come up with anything. Thank you!

The Tangaro's of the world go to great lengths to instill "favorable doubt" towards themselves. By your own words your not ready or capable of allowing this man into your world or the worlds of your family members..

I know the real Frank Melrose...who,s name i will disclose at the end of my comment.Let me start off by saying I remain neutral ,I am not a judge and none of us are in a court of law......but i know the truth about the so called Frank Melrose ,I grew up on Federal Hill also a few doors down from James and his sister and his so called mother.....she was anything but a mother!! James was constantly abused as a child ...locked out on weekends at the age of 10 and so on, so mom could have fun with the men....this you know DANIAL AZZARONE a so called preacher...thats
Frank Fullofit January 07, 2013 at 10:18 PM
right... thats this liers real name, He tried to date and become friendly with James mom only to be closer to James.... so yes everyone reading this... the typical preacher trying to molest the boy without a father and a tramp for a mom.....DANIAL ..who in life is a preacher hiding behind God is angry because James never gave into DANIALS sexual advances ....remember the camping trip .....Danial Azzarone left angry once more because the poor old dirty man could not have his way once more with James....oh yes everyone should also know good old Danny boy was supposed to counsel and help
Frank Fullofit January 07, 2013 at 10:18 PM
James ....thats what the good OLD preacher said he was going to do .....you had no good intentions of helping him only hurting him...maybe if it was not for creeps like you James would of had a better chance at life !!!You taught him how cruel the world can be ....instead of doing the work of God you showed him the work of Satan....and everyone try googling his name DANIAL AZZARONE....its all the truth I speak.... unlike the typical molesting preacher ...unfortunately I wasn,t as street wise as James ....Danial had his way with me and this i have to live with!!! It is so obvious what he is doing in three post he repeats himself over and over.... being so bitter ! And Danny as a preacher why didn,t you do gods work and help his sister ....if not James ...because your interest was on one thing only.....MOLESTING!!!! calling the kettle black.OH.....and for everyone reading this how could the good preacher Danny know so much personal information on James ...like peeing on walls while you watched ...he was a child you creep!!And what kid would not steal from a tramp mother who locked you out...its called food.....and the aunt didnt give a crap about any of those kids.....remember these words Dan next time you lie...... God does not make bad children....people like you do ....and as for everyone who reads this.Thanks for listening...those of you who understand. And try not to judge a man until you have walked in his shoes...
Valerie Parkhurst January 08, 2013 at 12:08 PM
If its one thing this thread show? Absolutely, Positively nothing good comes out of abuse in any form..Its generational and breeds a generation of dysfuntional people who have no balanced view of their fellow human beings and or their place in this world.
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:07 PM
OK sorry... the liars real name is Daniel M Azzarone Priest/Reverend who abused me and most of the neighborhood young boys who like in your previous comment didnt have a dad like James or myself or anyone who gave a crap about us other than the wonderful priest Danny ....the church paid out millions its all in black in white on the computer.And as for enjoying it Danny that is such a give away that it is you only a true molester would think a seven year
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:08 PM
old boy would enjoy your filth...look that one up ....thats what half of them believe to ease their own conscious...and your a dead give away I will never forget those are the words you that were slurred to me .
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:09 PM
(.I know you want it) you pathetic OLD DRUNK . And how could you be married for 53 years and yet date Elaine liar you were never married its you DANIEL M AZZARONE ...the priest who would only know all that personal info ...because you were going around James house talking to the tramp mom trying to get at JAMES!!!all us boys hated you back then and still do ..you were charged and convicted of raping a few boys ....such a small percentage ...
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:10 PM
well at least their parents cared. And as for being a queer ....its now called gay ,you dinosaur,that I am not... I am a productive individual who is also married ....but chose not to have children
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:10 PM
because of the lack of trust you installed in me....most people are wonderful human beings ...but after the hell you put us through ...I am taking no chances. As for Maria and John they were decent people ...and to prove i am not lying John was blind and they owned to dobermans.And your a pathological liar...your just defending Elaine because your the old priest fag ,and she is a fag hag ...its not hard to manipulate a tramp ...their easy targets for you because 9 times out of ten there lonely ,broke,and have a house full of kids for the good priest to counsel or in your case rape. And as for James I only knew him when i was younger ...and yes he was the smartest in our class and did attend school on his own ....with no lunch ,old clothes..always the same ones he did the best he could... considering the street was his home. Your a sick man and you should have never been released ...I am a firm believer in God, but because of you not the catholic church... I know most of the people there are wonderful and do their best to help out the community ,but unfortunately you gave that a bad name also,
Frank Fullofit January 08, 2013 at 08:10 PM
just like your doing now still destroying lives.... give it a rest DANIEL M AZZARONE not FRANK MELROSE....and moron of course Frank Fullofit is not my real name it is a play on your fake name.....I think i shook you up OLD Danny boy....now all of a sudden James was smart in school and your not going to condemn him....well as the good Priest knows the lord works in mysterious ways ...and i am sure he is going to condemn you ...TO HELL WHERE YOU MAY BURN IN ETERNAL FLAMES !!! ps maybe than your body will match that red alcoholic face!!!....to those of you who read this I apologize for my hatred that I have for this man .....but to see the real monster that helped destroy James life, my life and many others ...again google DANIEL M AZZARONE ..who pretends to be FRANK MELROSE ....Thanks for taking the time to read this. and I do not mean you OLD Danny boy!!
Frank Fullofit January 09, 2013 at 04:04 AM
Well how pathetic are you Danny ..as far as me dating Elaine she was like 50 I was the same age as James ,if you we're not so illiterate you would have read my comments and see that I went to school with James I was a minor you sicko ,and I stated I am not gay ,I just corrected how you used the word queer ,which means odd .And I am married not that I have to prove my manhood ...we all know that Daniel Azzarone again going under the fake name of Frank Melrose is the gay monster molesting red faced freak hiding and hating me so obviously ...everyone reading this can see your hate toward me in all your babbling dumb comments ,so all you are doing is proving me right !If you didn't know me ,James and all the others you raped you wouldn't even waste your time .,again be careful we know where you work ...my income is good and you are on probation ...mmm wonder if I talk to my lawyer if its not to late to open up my case ?
Frank Fullofit January 09, 2013 at 06:56 AM
No one enjoyed you Daniel your a sick molester to even say I enjoyed you at seven years old ..I trusted you ..you were a priest you were there to help and counsel us ...reach out to do Gods work not reach out and rape us ...Yes DANIEL M AZZARONE rapes boys and after 3lousy years of prison he was set free ...he now works at a shelter where he prays on the weak and sick ...and there are children there ..and he collects a full pay ..and for all the readers they can see all the hate you have for me a young man you don't know you claim ...no way you know me it's so obvious in all your hateful comments ...why would one care if one doesn't know the other ...it's guilt maybe ,but I doubt it because your a heartless OLD MAN ,it's this great forum ,where I can expose DANIEL AZZARONE ,the molesting priest !!!Thats what you hate .Keep hating ,I study medicine ..and all that negative energy equals CANCER ..
Frank Fullofit January 09, 2013 at 07:11 AM
Oh and you call me gay or QUEER ,hmmm pretty funny DANIEL M AZZARONE your the one !! A friend of mine was a guard at the prison you were in ,and he informed me that at an given time you would perform sexual favors for any poor slob interested .So not only are you a molesting freak ..but as you like to call gay people QUEER YOUR A QUEER...that's right OLD Danny boy that's another reason why your so bitter ...first you become a priest to be around all men ...than you move onto children ...and back in the SLAMMER (prison) your right where you started men again ..to bad they let you out only God knows what your up to now ...
Frank Fullofit January 09, 2013 at 07:20 AM

Again I apologize if I offended anyone other than ..DANIEL M AZZARONE
Frank Fullofit January 10, 2013 at 12:10 AM

Speak out January 10, 2013 at 12:45 PM
Lauren, I think it's time to close the comments on this article and clean up (ie. delete) all the inappropriate comments. This has the potential to get even uglier than it already has.
Frank Fullofit January 11, 2013 at 06:38 AM
I would like to apologize to all who has read my comments ,as you can see the man who calls him self Frank is really Daniel M Azzarone ....please google him and you will understand all the hurt he has caused all us boys back then that belonged to that parish .I harbor to much anger and pain for the crime he had committed on myself and many others ...but this was the only place I found him speaking against people that he caused so much damage to.I apologize to Lauren ,a..nd thank you Speak out for opening my eyes ....I will go over and delete all comments from me that contain anything inappropriate .But I will never apologize to the man who has ruined so many lives ...DANIEL M AZZARONE . Again apologies to all who have been offended .And again Speak Out I went over it ..and I will delete some . Thank you all for reading ,it did help to let others know ...in a way it was therapeutic ,it felt good to get it out and tell others ...who are neutral and kind ...there were no words of hate from any of you (not including Daniel ) Thank You again for not judging me . Sincerely Adam
Valerie Parkhurst January 11, 2013 at 12:21 PM
Actually closing the thread would be a disservice to all. The Thread itself speaks volumes to the damage these crimes do to the people effected by them. If Adam needed to gain his "pound of flesh" thru this forum, then let him. Too many times the victim(s) are left with no outlet to vent and think about this? If the world were truly turning on its axis, OUR children would not grow up to harbor such damage. Sometimes not always but more often than we like to admit, the abused grow into abusers and the dysfunction and OR the PAIN jumps from generation to generation. I dont know if Frank is Daniel Azzarone or not.James obviously turned out to be a very "damaged" human being. But what I do know their are plenty of Priest who perpetrated alot of hurt on alot of people and were shuffled thru society like the plague. For anyone of them to be walking as a free man is a travesty of Justice.
Leave RI January 11, 2013 at 08:54 PM
This is a waste of reading space. The last 5 days of this thread could've taken place in some AOL type chatroom.
Frank Fullofit January 12, 2013 at 05:42 AM
We all know that ......(Leave RI) but he was the one that placed 3 comments on here first .....I would have preferred to talk to him on any other site ....but I read the patch and know who he is and wanted to make my point .....you don't have to read it ...Thank You , Adam. Valerie made alot of sense ...and so did Speak Out ...they both helped me to understand all the hate I have is a waste ...and it will be hard but I will move on with my life ,Again sorry for offending anyone ....and next week I will remove any offensive comments . Again Sincerly Adam .
