“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 Phillip Greaves with distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in harmful conduct.
Man who wrote 'how-to' for pedophiles arrested - CNN“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 children, grooming and preparing children for sex, and teaching children how to lie to their parents.
Judd said Greaves’ book outlined a “code of ethics” that showed pedophiles how to look for the most vulnerable children.
The man is sick... Usually childhood survivors of rape and molestation have a difficult time coping with not telling sooner or not telling at all, they tend to believe that their lack of telling gives their abuser the chance to abuse more. No victims want their abuser to abuse more or hurt other kids..
The fact that people are defending this book is disgusting. He is clearly telling pedos how to abuse and how to manipulate the children and make them compliant... If this man has abused and conditioned his victims and is writing a how-to-guide on it, further exploiting his victims and abuse, and making money on it... then he is just further damaging those children. It's f**king sick and indefensible..

I haven't read the book, so I'll assume for the sake of argument it actually seeks to teach people how to target and sexually abuse children.
You know what I find interesting?
How many people are dead-set on being disgusted by this book -- rather than viewing it as an opportunity to learn lessons on how to better protect vulnerable children from the very type of person who seeks to abuse them. Any electronic intrusion, criminal justice or terrorism expert can learn volumes from the maintenance manuals and technical documentation published by his targets. Why is this any different?
Why is it that we can't be adult enough to look past the shock and see the strategic value of a document like this?
The crazy thing is, I bet you dollars to donuts that that violates one of a variety of vaguely-worded Federal statutes regulating interstate commerce, the difference here is that the government did it, so it's okay.
I don't think my statement was emotional and void of a rational argument. I will still argue that if you were hurt by somebody like that man, or one of your children were.. you'd probably feel different and think differently. I am rationally arguing that your initial instinct would be different. That is not void of rational.. your response is utter BS.
