I'm infuriated beyond my ability to describe at the news that a 170-page manual on how to molest children - and get away with it - is being circulated in Florida . . . and, according to police, it's quite legal, and they can't do anything to stop it!
A 170-page manual explaining step by step how to molest children which police in Orange County, Fla., believe has been circulating there for months, is not illegal. Investigators have stated that they still want to know where it came from.
"I've never seen anything like it. It was pretty amazing when I first saw it just because how detailed it was," Orange County Sheriff's Office Det. Philip Graves told ABC News Orlando, Fla., affiliate WFTV.
The manual, which was apparently written by someone who calls himself "the mule," is a how-to of child molestation, even explaining where and how to find potential victims, the station reported.
"I was more amazed that someone would be as bold as to create an actual 170-page document that would detail how to do it," he said.
Among the many disturbing topics covered in the book is how to convince a victimized child not to tell his or her parents.
. . .
Graves told WFTV that it is not a crime in Orange County to send the manual by e-mail or to possess it, but local and federal investigators are trying to track down where the manual initially came from.

This sickens me. I'm all for the right to free speech . . . but to say that right also covers this sort of filth is beyond me. I can't find the slightest scrap of mercy in me for the author, and I can only wish him (I'm presuming he's male) a slow and agonizing death, as soon as possible. I truly believe he's forfeited his right to life, in the moral sense, by producing and circulating this filth . . . and I don't expect he'll find much mercy in the hereafter, either (see Matthew 18:6).
I've had to work with abused kids before. It leaves an indelible mark on your soul to see how badly they've been harmed. Knowing that, and then learning of this abomination . . . there aren't really any words to adequately describe what I'm feeling right now.
