Pond Scum

This post is not about being homeless or poor.  The only possible tie in is that I hope this man will be homeless now.

Officials in Florida on Monday filed an obscenity charge against the author of a self-published, nationally carried how-to guide for pedophiles.

See what I mean. 
Polk County sheriff's deputies arrested and took Philip Ray Greaves II into custody while he was in Colorado at his home where they charged him with a violation of Florida's obscenity law.

Polk Sheriff Grady Judd said his office was able to arrest Greaves on Florida charges because Greaves sold and mailed his book through US mail, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct," directly to undercover Polk deputies.

"He very proudly sold us his personal copy," Officer Judd told the Associated Press. "I was outraged by the content. It was clearly a manifesto on how to sexually batter children ... You just can't believe how absolutely disgusting it was."

Apparently is was the last book from the author - which I am sorry to say seems to indicate that all those published have been sold and are accessible by the general public.

Author Greaves is being charged in Florida with distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in conduct harmful to minors.
