Perverts, Foreign and Domestic

Posted on | March 4, 2014 | 14 Comments

You have to wonder whether 62-year-old bachelor aristocrat Patrick Rock was chosen to be Downing Street’s child pornography expert, or whether he volunteered. Looks like probably the latter:

One of David Cameron’s closest aides has been arrested on suspicion of offences relating to child pornography.
Patrick Rock, who was one of the government’s advisors on policy for online pornography filters, was arrested last month after police examined computers in No 10 Downing Street.
Mr Rock resigned as a policy advisor to the Prime Minister soon afterwards.
No 10 said he was arrested last month “a few hours” after Downing Street contacted police.
The former deputy head of the No 10 Policy Unit has been close to Mr Cameron for two decades. The two men worked for Michael Howard when he was Home Secretary in the 1990s.

Oh, sure, those decadent British aristocrats, but wait — there’s more dreadful perversion, somewhat closer to home:

The pastor of a Baton Rouge Baptist church was arrested Saturday on accusations he raped a 20-year-old mentally disabled woman who had sex with the pastor at her father’s request, according to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.
David “Scott” Lemley, 43, pastor of New Harmony Baptist Church, on Antioch Road, was booked Saturday into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of aggravated rape.
Lemley also was booked on a count of theft of a motor vehicle and is accused of giving away a car — which he was supposed to be working on as a favor for someone — to a member of his church, who then sold the vehicle to a scrap metal company for about $250 in early February, arrest documents show.
According to an arrest warrant, Lemley is accused of having sex with a 20-year-old woman “with the medical documentation mental capacity of a 7-year-old” after the woman’s father told the woman to have sex with Lemley because the pastor’s wife had been ill and bedridden.
The woman’s father was arrested in November and remains in Parish Prison on a variety of sex counts, including aggravated rape. His name is being withheld to protect the identify of his daughter.

“Allegedly”! It’s important to add “allegedly.”

    These individuals must root for the bad guys on True Detective.

    Wolf in charge of the hen house.

    Are we to the point where psychological tests must be administered to find out:

    1) a person’s sexual orientation (to be imprinted on your ID)
    2) if you are a pervert (but then what’s perverted these days?)

    To be applied to all government employees, politicians, school officials and teachers.

    Baton Rouge, mental capacity of a 7y.o.? Was she a LSU cheerleader?

    OK now, that was just bad form and a despicable lie. LSU cheerleaders have the mental capacity of a 9 year old. You must be thinking of the cheerleaders at Tulane.

    According to an arrest warrant, Lemley is accused of having sex with a 20-year-old woman “with the medical documentation mental capacity of a 7-year-old” after the woman’s father told the woman to have sex with Lemley because the pastor’s wife had ill and bedridden.

    I had to read this sentence several times before I fully understood it. There’s more to that angle, no doubt,; I can’t imagine that the womans father, apropos of nothing, would say to his daughter, “Do it with the pastor” if Lemley hadn’t been offering up way TMI about his sexual frustration, and how he wished that there was a way he could find release via someone who not only wouldn’t tell, but who wouldn’t be believed even if she DID tell (wink wink nudge nudge).

    I am reminded again of a case many years ago where a young (early twenties) man with the “mental capacity of a child” (statutorally) raped a 12-year-old girl in his acquaintance…

    This man did not look mentally disabled and was well known and liked, and occupied his days in innocent play with the neighbourhood children. He was considered a “harmless idiot”! Physically, he was an adult and it never occurred to anyone beforehand that he might act on his adult “urges” with one his de facto “peers”. But he did the deed and was arrested and charged as an adult…

    He accepted his crime and did the time with grace (in protective custody; though oddly, other inmates actually looked after him!) except that he literally bawled himself to sleep each night for months because he wasn’t allowed his stuffed animal! I actually felt sorry for the fellow…

    From what I could tell the father had pimped the woman before.

    So, if the 12 yo girl had been a 22 woman, the man would have been the victim, and the woman would have been the pervert.

    Tulane has cheerleaders? Is that what you call ’em?
    As for the substance of this post: W.T.H!?!?

    Snark begets snark…even if it is in bad taste.

    Is it time for a snark hunt?

    Hunting Snark is more sporting than Snipe hunting.

    Depends if you are the hunter or the huntee …

    Always the hunter, never the hunted.
