Usually I don’t watch talk shows, but the other day I did, and what I saw shocked me and made me sick to my stomach. The local news was just about to end for the morning, and The Mike and Juliet Show was coming on next. They played a little spot about what was coming up. I knew they would be talking with a pedophile, and still I watched, because I think that these people are sick and should be taken out of society. They spoke to the man, (and I have great difficulty calling him that)by the name of Jack McClellan, who seems to be proud of the fact that he is a self proclaimed pedophile. Although his reasoning is that he doesn’t touch the children, and the only reason for that is because it is illegal. This isn’t the first I have seen of this pig, he has been on at least four other news shows that I know of as of late.
While watching this interview, I got more and more angry. The things that he had to say mortified me, and I don’t even have children. I do however have plenty of nieces and nephews who are within the age range of the children that this sicko likes to stalk. Although he says it isn’t stalking, just merely like taking pictures like a birdwatcher would . No sir, not quite the same. The total time spent on this freak was about 23 minutes. Along with him they had a few other guests including, Ron Tebo, who runs an anti-Jack website, and I have to say is doing an excellent job. I would highly recommend visiting this sight, it gives a lot of helpful information for keeping your children safe. Among other very good resources, you can also download a picture of this guy, and it also includes a section of sightings of Jack. You see him, you report it, and it will be added to this site. Another of the guests was a man by the name of Dr Keith Ablow who is a forensic psychologist, and asked him some pretty tough questions in which he never did answer. They also had a gentleman by the name of Jeffrey Steinburger who happens to be an attorney. And along with these experts in each of their fields, they had a representative from mothers against predators.
Throughout this interview you could see tensions rise, as this man continued to spew his pedophile babble. Apparently he thinks that people don’t know what he looks like generally, because every time I see this man do an interview, he is wearing dark sunglasses. But the Mike and Juliet Show took care of that by showing his picture as often as possible. They all spoke to Jack about the website he has been running, which was basically a how to for pedophiles to find their young victims. They expressed their disgust as to the site, and what he had to say. He had everything well mapped out on his website. You could find where to go to find the young ones, how to not be caught by police in various states and even countries. It truly is a plethora of information, which in the wrong hands (and whom else would visit the site other than law enforcement, or someone looking for their child on there?) could be extremely harmful.As I sat and listened I took it upon myself to investigate this pedophile and report to you what I have found and possibly give some helpful tips to keeping your children safe.
Ron Tebo, who runs the Anti-Jack website, is a former victim of sexual abuse as well. He spoke of it on the show that morning, and it is also mentioned on his website. While he was talking of this you could plainly hear the pain in his voice. You learn to recognize it when you know victims who have told of their tales. Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon occurrence. Approximately 1 in 5 girls, and 1 in 6 boys will be molested before they reach the age of eighteen. In nearly all cases the victim knew the assailant., and it is estimated that an average run of the mill pedophile will commit the heinous crime approximately 117 times before being convicted of child rape or sexual molestation of a child. Over half of them will re-offend. Unfortunately the numbers increase every year, and this may be due in part to the Internet and websites such as this. Another staggering statistic is that approximately only 35% of all sexual assaults are reported, mainly because the child is scared or worried of what others will think of them. As far as Mr. Tebo is concerned his main objective is to stop this pedophile before he does act on his attraction, and I applaud him. He is making sure that Jack is well known, if not by face, then by the vehicle he drives and so forth.
Jack admittedly moved from Washington and now lives in Los Angeles California. When asked why he left Washington he only says that it was for his parents. It always happens that when someone is found doing something that they ought to not be doing, someone will look back and say, man I can’t believe I missed that, usually going back in their minds to something they saw the offender do. We ought to learn from previous convicted predators as far as things to look for. Jack was also asked what had happened to him as a child. He didn’t really have a lot to say, and in fact stumbled over his words almost stuttering, He claims that his childhood was normal with the exception of a few misguided punishments and groundings. And without knowing his parents or even talking with them, we may never find out totally what has caused Jack to become the man he is today. At least he is at this point unwilling to speak of this part of his life.Jack still lived at home with his parents until leaving Seattle and moving to Los Angeles. People have said that his parent’s may not know of this latest website or he would be written out of the will. I guess if that is the case, he is well out of there by now. He is unemployed and collects a monthly welfare check. The representative from Mothers against predators, believes (as do I) that most of these people are not able to be rehabilitated. And with the number of re-offenders it is pretty safe to say, that the ones that haven’t “re-offended” have either not been caught or decided that it just was not worth it.
While visiting Ron Tebo’s website, I found a great amount of links that could help you to keep your children safe, as well as the link to the website that started all the controversy. I warn anyone who thinks of going to this site, you will be disturbed, and possibly even sick to your stomach. Besides the fact that he goes into great detail for providing information on performing this atrocity. Many parents have even visited the site to heartbreakingly find pictures of their children posted there. You will also see very alarming statements such as Jack stating that he just wants to hug and cuddle these children. His age of attraction is ages 3-11. He also claims that he does not touch children sexually, not because it so immoral, but because it is illegal, and he feels that the children ought to be able to “consent” to the hugging and cuddling. Jack too has done his research, and in fact investigated all of the laws in each state and posted them there. His web provider finally banned him from producing the website from that domain forcing him to move to another in an alternate country and has even teamed up with Lindsay Ashford, another sicko running a similar site.
Jack McClellan, if seen in the area of children should be reported to police. He of his own admittance will hang around elementary schools, parks, swimming pools, and libraries. Jack McClellan is a 45 year old white male with dark hair, and often wears a ball cap, hat and sunglasses. Jack drives a blue, 1993 Ford Escort with two doors, and the last known license plate number was 915 WEX. He also has other aliases that he operates under and they include, Peter John Hyland, John Hyland, and Jack Hyland. Among other things he also has had a lot of email addresses such as email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. He also will talk to people via instant messenger and his known scree names are un_circumcised, and un_csd. If you find any of these attached to your instant messenger contacts, I highly recommend finding out whom was speaking with him, and report it immediately. Often times they too can go back to your computer and find a log of the conversation that was held with that person. Since this man is unemployed, he has plenty of time to focus on this sick little hobby of his.
Some of the ways to keep your children safe are at the very least common sense, keep an eye on your child, keep them nearby so you can get to them quickly, observe whom else is in the area they may look innocent enough but it doesn’t mean they are, as you have just read. Also never let them go anywhere that you are unaware of or don’t know who will be there. Going to a friends house is fine, just make sure they have safe routes, they know what to look out for, and are taught stranger danger. I know that these day’s it is an uncommon thing for children to be learning. When I was a kid they drilled it into our heads every year, and I think they ought to again. Your school, daycare, or even boy or girl scout troops can call your local police department and request an officer to speak to the children of stranger danger. They often are glad to oblige, you just have to schedule a time with them. Teaching your children about good touch and bad touch can help if something does happen, then they can use their words to express to you and officer’s what happened. I too, would suggest going over Internet safety with your children, the dangers of talking to people they don’t know, and what they should do if a conversation turns in the wrong direction. Set clear and concise limits, and always keep the computer in a neutral part of the house, say somewhere where others will be passing by frequently. I would visit a website to help you in teaching your children the safety of these, and often they will also have links to teach you their Internet lingo. Their abbreviations may look harmless enough, but to be on the safe side, just learn them.
Also there are so many sexual predators, and sexual pedophiles that you need to be aware of what is going on around you. I would suggest visiting family watchdog. You can find all of the predators in your area, addresses, what they are convicted of, and more. It is an excellent resource. But don’t get the false security that just the ones that are listed on there are the only ones around. There are approximately 100,000 unregistered or unknown sex offenders in the United States. Your child may see you as being overprotective, or overbearing, but safe is much better than sorry later on. Prevention is key, and awareness will save the innocent lives of so many.
The latest development on this story is this. The State of California has put a temporary restraining order against Jack McClellan, with the provisions that he must keep at least 10 yards away from all minors under the age of 18 at all times. He also cannot contact any child by phone or e-mail. Thank you Judge, it may have been this action that helps to keep just one little girl safe! I applaud you.
