malicious_pengy: Always fun to know someone...

You know the guy Stabler beat up? The second he came into the story line, I recognized him. I am a good 99% sure he's based on Jack McClellan. I believe he might be from my hometown, but I could be mistaken. His little hobby in web design began in my current area, though.

About his lovely website and philosophy...
About his general moving around...

And a nice little soundbite from the AP.

"Self-described pedophile says he's leaving California after new limits

Associated Press - August 26, 2007 5:05 PM ET

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A self-described pedophile who moved from Washington state to the Los Angeles area now says he will leave California, after a judge ordered him to stay away permanently from places where children gather.

The restrictions bar Jack McClellan from going within 30 feet of places children congregate, or making any kind of contact with them without written parental consent.

McClellan tells KABC-TV in Los Angeles that the restrictions are - in his words - "Orwellian" and "nightmarish." He did not say where he will go next.

When he lived in Snohomish County (Washington), McClellan operated a Web site where he posted photos of children in public places and discussed how he liked to stake out parks, public libraries, fast-food restaurants and other areas where little girls congregated.

His Internet service provider took down his Web site more than a month ago. McClellan has maintained he launched the site as a form of therapy and would not do anything illegal. He has never been charged with molestation.

The 45-year-old has been unemployed and living out of his car since arriving in Southern California this summer from Washington."

Gah.

Ugh, How disgusting. I read the articles and that's clearly who SVU based the EP on. I wasn't too happy with said episode, felt it tried to promote "understanding" pedophiles sexual natures a little too much (to please the perp viewers),and even though Olivia countered with the facts of such cases, the whole scene at the beginning with the crying teenager just pissed me off. These assholes did considerable damage to me. I really don't give a fuck if their nature is nature or nurture in origin.

Purely from a psychology perspective, I have to admit I'm curious. But I don't really care if they have an "excuse" or not, the bastards should be punished severely. I guess I would like to study them to find out if there's a way to prevent that from happening. Some psych screening, something you could use to find out who not to trust before they actually hurt someone.
