Last week Fox News ran a story about Jack McClellan who
has had a web site offering a how-to guide to pedophilia. At first you might think it is a sick April fools joke but it really is just sick. Rather then recap the story, read Stephen McCaskill’s excellent post at CrimeBlog.us or visit his blog at crimesceneblog.com
Note: (some readers comments contain adult language).
After watching Fox News and reading the post it immediately reminded me of “Jonathon Edington”, 29, who last year was charged with first degree murder for allegedly stabbing his neighbor, Barry James, 58, to death after his wife told him that the man had molested their 2-year-old daughter.
What will parental reaction be should their child be unknowingly posted on his site? If the NCMEC can’t post a missing child’s photo or information should a child be abducted or missing without parental consent, how can he post images of these children?
In this King5 Jack McClellan makes this admission.
When asked if he’s a pedophile, he thought for a moment and said, “Um, yes, I’d have to say, just to be perfectly honest, obviously I am at this point.”
The website was shut down not for the content instead because of a violation of the Terms Of Service. He apparently used a fake name when registering the site.
