Disgusting Author Gets Booked!

The sicko behind a controversial book considered a "how-to" guide for pedophiles was arrested in Colorado, officials in Florida said Monday.

"You cannot engage or depict children in a harmful relationship," said Polk
County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd as he described the Florida obscenity
statute that officials used to charge Philip Greaves with distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in harmful conduct.

The self-published author was arrested in Pueblo, Colorado, on a Florida felony
warrant after undercover detectives in Polk County purchased and received a copy of the book through the mail. He will have to be extradited to Florida to face charges.

Judd said the book was Greaves' last copy, which he autographed
before sending out.

Greaves and his book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love
and Pleasure: A Child-Lover's Code of Conduct," gained national attention
earlier this year after defended selling the book on its website
despite angry comments and threats of boycotts from thousands of users.

Amazon pulled the book from its site in early November.

"He actually provided a how-to guide to commit sexual battery against children,"
according to Judd, who said he was shocked and mortified by specific examples
and illustrations using 9- and 13-year-old boys.

Judd said he was frustrated that Greaves' book was protected under freedom of speech laws, even though it was created "specifically to teach people how to sexually molest and rape children."

"There may be nothing that the other 49 states can do, but there is something that the state of Florida can do ... to make sure we prosecute Philip Greaves for his manifesto," Judd said

Officials said the book talked about safe sex and avoiding injury to the child, grooming and preparing the child for sex, and teaching children how to lie to their parents.

Judd said Greaves' book outlines a "code of ethics" that showed pedophiles how to look for the most vulnerable children.

"The message is very clear: If you write a book , if you sell that book, if you transmit that book to anyone in our jurisdiction, then we will investigate you and arrest, because our goal is protect the children," the sheriff said.

I didn't know about this, but I am however happy to hear that he will spend time behind bars. And word on the street is, inmates find pedophiles completely and utterly disgusting. I hope they make him walk around with his hands in their pockets.
