Latest News & Prevention

I know its been a while since I’ve posted anything news worthy or current events that effect the devastating sex crimes against the innocent, I have to share the following because I am outraged, and shocked at the sheer audacity of the child sex abusers.

Recently I joined an inter-active, and informational website named http://www.quora.com. It covers just about any subject you can think of. It’s inter-active in the sense that you can post a question for the members, and viewers to answer, and also read thousands of posts that other members have written.

The first day….no, the first HOUR that I had joined the site, I was shocked, and angry to see an entire sub-section of self-proclaimed “pedophiles”! The topic for these monsters seems to be building into a forum of discussion for fellow child sex abusers.

I was so outraged, and angry by these people that openly delight in discussing the crimes against our innocent, and defenseless children, that I promptly did a screen shot of the opening page, and typed out a letter to my local FBI field office asking them to investigate these individuals.

I am hopeful that a thorough investigation and follow through will be conducted. I intend to follow up with this issue, and do what I can to stop these criminals from assaulting the children.

I encourage victims of child sex abuse, and those who are committed to stopping these  predators to denounce this website, and its members who are self-proclaimed “pedophiles”!

HONORABLE PETER ROOK, ENGLAND

Never before has a judge from a country other than the United States of America been featured on this site. Laws seem confusing, and lenient at best toward child sex abusers, and pedophiles. They even spell the word “pedophile” very different from the U.S. English version. In any event, there is one Judge that recently handed down sentencing for a seasoned pedophile that just can’t be overlooked by those who advocate justice for the victims past, and present of child sex abuse. The Honorable Peter Rook of England has captured headlines here, and abroad as he handed the appropriate sentence of 22 life terms. Which means, at minimal the disgusting, and loathed predator will be required to serve a minimal of 25 years before ever being considered for release. Even at that time, should he somehow live long enough to regain his freedom, I have serious doubts he would ever be released back into society again. The convicted predator travelled to countries like Cambodia and China visiting the poorest communities, and targeted the most absolute vulnerable of children. He then tried to publish, and sell his evil, and disgusting book, and amassed library of photos on the dark web. One sick SOB. The Bristish have named the slithering scumbag “the worst paedophile in Bristish history”. As you know, I do not publish the names of the offenders on this site. I do not wish to throw stain on the Judges honor on this site by publishing the name of the convicted offender on the same page as the name of the judge. This site is intending to show the upmost respect, and honor for those judges that show valor, and courage for the protection, and safety of the innocent children who’s numbers are countless in which sexual assault, and abuse has been endured. Thank you Judge Rook of England for setting a good example for the judicial system by handing down a sentence that will most likely keep this animal away from the children forever. We recognize the righteous sentencing, and protection you give the children.

HONORABLE WILLIAM J. POWELL, San Bernardino County Superior Court

Photo inset unavailable for Judge Powell
Photo inset unavailable for Judge Powell

Yes! It’s a glorious day in the Southern California! I take great joy, and pride in featuring this particular Judge because he is right here in my immediate community. Judge William Powell, a San Berdoo native is one of the youngest, and newest Superior Court Judges in San Bernardino County, and he is making quite a name for himself. A family man who apparently was quite the all American athlete in high school, and graduate from Western University. It is my humble “adult survivor” opinion that Judge Powell has taken definitive action against those monsters who choose to assault, and violate the innocent child. As you will now learn…

When the mother of the victim came home unexpectedly, and caught the disgusting, and vile predator raping her daughter, she took immediate action by calling law enforcement. The sad excuse for a human being fled. San Bernardino Counties finest caught up with him less than two weeks later. Although, I find it personally very difficult to provide child sex abusers with the fairness of a jury trial, it’s a major right granted to all of us through our great country’s law, and Constitution. That being said, the low-life predator was found guilty of too many felony charges to list in this report. I will report this….the veteran Prosecutor in this case commented that it was one of the most difficult cases she had ever had in her 10 years of prosecuting criminals. The details of the assaults in the case, which began when this poor child was only 6 years old, are so despicable that they cannot be written by any reporter or published by any media venue that has an ounce of decency. Yet, there is a light at the end of this sad case’s story. 366 years of light is shining through the message to the victim of hope, and retribution. The Honorable Powell has made sure, in no uncertain terms that this pedophile shall pay with his life for his crimes against this child, and humanity. There is no way the convicted predator will ever have a chance to hurt or violate another child again…..EVER. I think I can speak for the majority of morally sound citizens by saying…we as a community, mother, father, sister, brother, and any individual that believes our children should be protected, and nurtured at ANY cost say “Thank you Judge Powell”  for your public service, the commitment you have toward appropriate sentencing for child sex abusers, and making the well being of the child the priority. Your judgement in this case, and the long sentence handed down by you is nothing less than the action of a real hero. We have immense  gratitude, and respect for your ability to serve justice toward convicted child predators. We consider you among the very best in your field, and in sentencing of the pedophiles that target our young. The table of “honored justices” is getting bigger by the day, and we couldn’t be more delighted. Thank you, Sir. Welcome to the growing list of jurists who are taking action to stop pedophiles in their tracks. The children need your effective dispensing of justice, and continued protection.

On a side note, I wanted to share a “vision” I have for the future of the sentencing judges featured on this site. Some of you may be aware that I am quite selective while seeking out, and researching the very best judges to honor on this site. I have a hope or a dream…whatever you choose to call it…that one day in the future, the judges on this site come together for a meeting of their minds, and continue contribution to the commitment of making the safety of the children first. This can be done in greater numbers through the avenues in which they hold such great power. Their direct action can, and must prevent, stop, and punish pedophiles. These Honored Judges deserve everyone’s support, and encouragement. Let your favorite judge know your hard-lined position on the length of sentencing. It’s Important to remember that most of these well balanced, and fair individuals are still elected officials. There should never be any reluctance on a judges part to hand down the most appropriate, and severe sentencing for convicted child predators in fear of those who have their own agendas, and oppose this trend. Nobody should ever have the power to shame an innocent child who has been assaulted by an adult. Which is essentially what those opposed to long sentences for child predators do when they object to the long sentences that stop the predator in their tracks.

Voice your opinions loudly, and let your community leaders know that you are tired of the innocent child victims carrying the burden of the flaws in our justice system when it comes to the issue of protecting our kids. There are many injustices, unfairness, and flaws in society. The arguments, and causes you can take action in or stand up for are endless. Too many to get your mind around many times, and this is partly why people do nothing at all. They may have great disagreements, intentions, or convictions toward the injustices of society but, remain mute or just shrug their shoulders. There are 1001 excuses why people don’t get involved in a cause or stand up for what is right. I’m aware. I’mjust as guilty. But, please think about this; of all the many injustices here on our soil, and globally…what could possibly be more urgent, profound, and necessary than protecting our most precious resource….humanities most valuable resource, and best chance to ensure our civilization has a future? Our only resource that can, and just may save us…. if you are still wondering what the answer is, there is no hope for your commitment or support…the answer is our CHILDREN. They hold the key to humanity’s future. If we allow predators or pedophiles to assault, rape, and kill them, by not imposing the most severe sentencing that stops them in their filthy tracks, then we are just as despicable as the monsters that seek to destroy them through their pathetic sexual fetishes, and selfish perversions.

If you don’t do anything for the rest of the week, the rest of the year or the rest of your life to support a cause that helps make the world a better place, do this! Take up the cause of protecting all children. Support those whose mission, and job is to find, stop, prevent, and punish those who seek to destroy the innocent child. We are humans, and we do not eat our children, and we don’t allow others to either!! If you don’t help protect the innocent child, who will? Please do something today that will take us one step closer to snuffing out sexual assaults against an innocent child. For those of you who are “adult survivors” reading this right now, I hold you more accountable than the average adult to do something in your community to support the cause of protecting innocent children from predators. I am an adult survivor too, and I couldn’t do anything to prevent, stop, or punish the assaults against me when I was little. I was helpless in defending myself. Not anymore. I CAN do something now. It’s too late for the adult survivors to stop what happened to us. But, we can do what we can to stop it from happening to the little girl or little boy out there right now being violated. We understand, and identify better than most what that child is going through. It is our responsibility to advocate and take action. Do whatever we can…even in the smallest or biggest way….to protect children being assaulted with everything we have. In some cases, this may be the only way for you to vindicate yourself, to find peace, and healing. At least try, in a healthy way, that you are confident with…to do something to stop child sex abusers, pedophiles, and predators. 

Thanks again for visiting the site.

HONORABLE VIRGINIA CALLIE SMITH, Federal Magistrate, Mobile, Alabama

image

Once again, the magnitude of committing assaults against an innocent child resonates from another impressive southern Judge. Federal Judge Smith has demonstrated her wisdom, and commitment to protecting innocent, young, and defenseless children in a way that society can rest assured, pedophiles, and child predators will face serious consequences for their dispicable acts. One thing I’ve learned from my research is that the defense Attorneys for the disgusting predators always seem to use the flaws of our legal system to the benefit of their convicted clients. Well, the pendulum swings both ways if the Judge is clever enough to utilize this mutual benefit to the relief of society, and those who are sickened by the predators attacking our children. In this case, the mandatory life sentence did not apply. However, with a little math, and re-arrangement of the convicted crimes coupled with the maximum sentence allowable applied, the amazing Judge Smith was successful in putting away a dispicable child predator until he is well into his 70s…being 31 when he got locked up. That may not stop him forever but, it will certainly guarantee he will not have access to any more innocent children for a very long time. Hopefully, by the time he gets out of prison…if he makes it out, there will be laws in place that better deal with, and irradiate child sexual abuse, and assault. Thank you Honorable Smith for your efforts, and the responsible action demonstrated in protecting the innocent children. They need you on their side, and we happy you give service, and commitment to helping uliminating predators from our society.

HONOROABLE JAMES D. WHITMORE, US District Tampa, Florida

We we all know that possessing child pornography is a crime, and dealt with very seriously. But, what if a pedophile goes beyond just the run of the mill pictures of naked children? What if the child sex abuser has a fetish for cannabalism of toddlers? As sickening, and disgusting as the very thought of this is, there is a convicted pedophile who is now serving 20 long years in the federal prison(he got lucky!) system for this very offense. The good people of the world have the most Honorable Whitmore to thank for putting this creep away. That’s right, the pervert received 20 years in prison for his possession of child pornography, and the use of the Internet to relish in his dispicable fantasies at the expense of innocent children. The pedophile had numerous online conversations with other pathetic child sex abusers about how he was going to kill, and eat toddlers. He traded heart breaking pictures with other monsters , and propagated this very disturbing desire by exploiting his garbage on the Internet. Did he deserve 20 years in prison for his acts that, as far as we know, did not include any actual contact with children? In this writers opinion, he damn well did! I don’t want ANYONE that is capable of even fantasizing about this type of behavor roaming the streets. I agree 100% with the Honorable Judge Whitmore, and I commend him for his courage to do the right thing. Thank you sir for being pro-active in taking one more sick pervert that has intentions of hurting our children off the streets. You are honored for your actions.

HONORABLE RICHARD L. BUTCHER, Queens County, New York

scale-of-justice

 

You know if a judge has to wipe the tears away from his face as he is handing down a sentence, the case must’ve been catastrophic. The Honorable Butcher had just told his court that in all the years he has been on the bench, the case he had before him was the worst, and most troubling of them all. I’ve said before that it takes an incredibly strong, and reserved human being to endure the disgusting details of these cases day, after day, and still manage to keep a level head, and dole out equitable Justice. I believe Judge Butcher is one of them. The 32 years that he handed down to the dispicable child predator doesn’t match the punishment for the 408 assaults the predator committed against his two young nieces but, it’s a start. We honor this extraordinary judge for his service to the community, his compassion for humanity, and his diligence in ensuring that the predator will never be able to hurt another child again. Thank you Judge Butcher. The children need your valor, and strength. Please accept our Hall of fame Honor Justice for everything you do to protect the young, defenseless, and innocent.IMG_1153platinum

 

 

Response From Judge Regarding This Site……..

image

Today, I received a letter from a Judge whom I had originally dedicated this site to. His Honor had taken action against a convicted pedophile that ensured the predator would never be able to hurt another child again. This Judge’s action had such an impact on me personally, as  an adult survivor of child sex abuse, that I was compelled to create this site. It was my goal to bring public awareness, and express the gratitude, and respect I have for all judges that have the courage to hand down the toughest sentences for convicted child predators. My intentions were nothing more than gratitude, and honor for the Judges I featured on this site.

However, due to the site title, “hanging judges”  it seems that not all Justices are so inclined to have their actions or names featured on this site. The focus seems to have re-directed itself to a negative association based on the sites title, and NOT it’s content. The old cliche’ “you can’t judge a book by its cover” seems to be lost in this arena.  The sensational title of the site has had the opposite effect of my intention due to the flippant name of the site. It was purely for traffic, and marketing incentive.

I was so devastated by this letter that the Judge wrote to me that I almost deleted the entire site. I came very close to just obliterating everything I had posted, and contributed. After I gathered myself from the disappointment, and stepped back, I took another hard look at all the content, and posts I have worked on. My contributions were for the sole purpose of supporting other survivors, and expressing gratitude to the exceptional Judges. I had to take a realistic look at all the dynamics of what exactly this site meant to not just the victims from a supportive stand point but, also what it meant to the judges featured on this site for their long sentences handed down to the convicted pedophiles.

After,  careful consideration, I have to ask what kind of civilization have we become when we worry about the adverse opinions of those who advocate child rape or think negatively of a Justice that has permanently prevented, and stopped a predator from ever raping another child again? Is the entire point of confinement, and punishment designed to stop, and prevent the convicted predator from ever hurting another child again? The answers to these questions are troubling.

One point that I failed to consider while creating this site, and more precisely naming this site, is the effects that would be created toward the Judges featured on this site. I hadn’t considered the opinions, and possible stigmatism that the two words “hanging judges” might develope from a casual observer or momentarily glimpse by ones visit to this site would create. I apologize to the judges that consider this site offensive to their position or individual reputation by featuring their honorable actions under the title “Hanging Judges”. I must accept, and respect this position with a reasonable amount of understanding.

I can only assume that the political nature of a judges position should be carefully considered prior to highlighting any of their actions of what the average citizen would consider the only rightful or righteous action to be taken. I take a hard look at the agenda, and motivations behind any critical opinions or positions by those who do not share in my desire to see child sex abusers, predators, and pedophiles eliminated from having access to children, and stopped. No child will ever be safe from these offenders, and until society has discovered an alternative, and reasonable way to prevent, and stop child sex abusers, I for one, will not be shamed into silence. I am an adult survivor, and a victim of child sex abuse. I deserve to have a forum to express my gratitude to those who take action to prevent, and stop this horrible epidemic that plagues our civilization today. When the popular opinion is sentences design by Congress to prevent, stop, eliminate, and punish child predators becomes so controversial, and leans to the favor of the convicted predators themselves, or hesitates Justice by taking unreasonable consideration for the predator or the predators rights, we should all take heed, and ask ourselves if Judicial positions should never be obtained through political influence or popular opinion, and votes. I would like to quote Honorable Raymond E. Beck of Maryland when he asked “What kind of society are we if we cant protect babies from the beasts among us?”

In concluding my response to this Honorable Judge, I would like to say that I regret that I did not appreciate the freedom I have to be able to state my convictions freely, and clear from any adverse or devious agendas objectors may harbor. It is inconsequential to me what opinion is popular, or what any special interests group may think of my hardline opinion that child predators must be stopped at all costs. I did not realize how much a judge may be bound by the position his supporters, and voters take on any number of issues addressed in a court of law, and how that will effect society as a whole. Personally, I would not want to be thought of as anything less than a “hanging judge” when it comes to sentencing convicted baby rapers. But, then again, I do not walk in a judges shoes, and I do not have to compromise or balance my belief, position or passion on this subject. I had written about this exact subject on the front page of this sight when I warned that the rights, and considerations taken toward the offenders…who have been convicted of assaults, and crimes against innocent, and defenseless children must not out weigh or over burden those of the victims. I further stated that if our justice system creates burdens in its process of conducting Justice, then let the burdens of our system be carried by the offender, and not the victims. The victims have already sacrificed themselves enough by serving as sexual gratification to the perversions of the predators. If our justice system is not perfect than let the burden of these imperfections be carried by the offenders, not the innocent, and defensless child.

In in a way, it seems like I took 2 steps forward, and 5 steps backward but, I will never give up on my efforts to eliminate child sex abuse. What has not killed me, has only made me fight harder.

The final insult to injury from this particuliar Judge was the fact that he told me in his letter that he was considering lessening the convicted predators sentence. Although he claims to find those who sexually abuse abhorrent, he also states that it is his  “duty to be fair, just, and unbiased, and to weigh each case, individually on its merits”. Wasn’t that what you did when you handed down the sentence to the convicted predator? It is fair, just, and unbiased when a case is conducted in a court of law for the accused. I don’t believe that sentencing requires that a judge be fair, and unbiased to a CONVICTED criminal. Isn’t that the purpose of sentencing guidelines? If a person is convicted of the crimes he is accused of, how can any sentencing be FAIR, and UNBIASED when the jury through process or the Judge through bench trial has found the accused GUILTY. I thought it was the responsibility of the judge to be humane, and avoid any cruel, and unusual punishment. If a judge is fair, and unbiased in his sentencing then the conviction is a farse. The trial is what is supposed to be fair, and unbiased until the Prosecutor proves his or her case. Sentencing is designed to punish, and prevent. Not ensure that the actions of a sentence are fair, and unbiased. If this is true, than no convicted criminal will ever believe his sentencing was “fair” or “unbiased”. The conviction proved the offenders GUILT. So, within humane, and reasonable measures, why is there an obligation to be “fair” or “unbiased” in sentencing? The very idea, I dare say lends itself to a twisted Justice or none at all for the victims.

Maybe the Judges who hand down the long sentences are being over sensationalized. Maybe the true heros in these horrific cases are the men, and women who seek to prosecute these offenders. Maybe these are the Real heros to the children, as it seems the judges are too egotistical, and worried about what popular opinion is. It is my position that when popular opinion dictates advocacy for the convicted child predators, humanity has slipped from a fall in which it can no longer pull itself up from.

I would lastly like to say that if there are any other Judges whose name, and actions have been featured on this sight, and they would like their name and/or actions completely removed from this site, please send me a message, and I will respect your request, and remove any reference of your actions, and name for this site.

Thank you,
