    Man who wrote 'how-to' for pedophiles arrested
    By the CNN Wire Staff
    December 21, 2010 -- Updated 1015 GMT (1815 HKT)

    I wasn't allowed to post a url here yet, so can you please google it, and read the article?

    What do you people think? My personal take is that this kind of explicit guide targets and infringes upon the civil liberties of the weakest of our society - the children. And should therefore be made exempt from the 1st Amendment.

    Is there any way for this to happen? Does it require a modification to the constitution?
    I know a lot of 1st Amendment fundamentalists claim there can be no exceptions.

    I thought the "obscenity" charge was too weak. In a way, his guide is a literal confession to having performed all of the things and methods he explains. He even explains how to train the children to lie to their parents. If they can't get him on the actual publishing of the book, maybe they can get him for the confession implicated in this guide?

    I would not think so, in part because it would appear to be a direct threat to innocents. Could I print a Manual on how to defraud the IRS? How to Crash a Banking Network? How to crash the FAA, Air Traffic Network?

    Are we a Nation of Laws? Do we apply reason, or do we let skeptics like the ACLU forever lead the gullible around by the nose, and bend us to their agenda's which appear far from neutral. We we have spines? Are we Vertebrae or In-vertebrae? I say it's okay to pee standing up. Damn it! :lol: ;)

    I don't think anyone should be charged with a crime simply for posting a guidebook or an opinion in book form anymore than someone who posts The Anarchist Cookbook http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Anarchist_CookbookThe Anarchist Cookbook
    could be accused of terrorism, but he should be investigated

    The idiot has the right to write and distribute his drivel. Amazon or any other retailer does not have to sell it for him.

    Naturally the ACLU will be all over this, as they are for anything related to paedophilia.

    Posting Porn has it's own consequences and limited Rights. There are things that one cannot do, and there are limits to what society tolerates. The Oligarchy is in for a rude awakening. Without Right on your side, once you surface, the shit is going to hit the fan. Maybe that is why information control is so important to the Statist plan for world domination.

    The obscenity charge is very weak charge to throw at him and it seems to be stretching the limits of what constitutes obscenity (which is not good because that law is vague enough as it is).

    Using the guide may infringe liberties, but the guide itself? I don't buy that. Owning and reading the guide does ... absolutely nothing.

    Although I predict they will lose a court case. I thought how-to books on how to do illegal things have been declared protected speech before.

    Let me know when they try to challenge the law saying you can't have sex with kids. Until then do knock off those crazy claims (yes I know they've defended the free speech rights of pedos but free speech applies to everyone).
