Author and notorious pedo Philip R. Greaves was arrested yesterday at his home in Colorado and sent to Florida on obscenity charges stemming from the publication of his pedo how-to guide that enraged pretty much everybody last month when it was briefly being sold on the Amazon Kindle store.
Officers arrested Phillip R. Greaves at his home in Pueblo on a warrant that charges him with violating Florida’s obscenity law. During a brief court appearance, Greaves waived his right to fight extradition and was transferred to Polk County, Fla.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department declined to release any details of Greaves’ transfer.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he claimed jurisdiction because Greaves sold and mailed his book directly to undercover deputies, who had written the author a letter requesting a copy. Judd said Greaves even signed the book.
“I was outraged by the content,” Judd told The Associated Press. “It was clearly a manifesto on how to sexually batter children … You just can’t believe how absolutely disgusting it was.”
The self-published book — “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct” — caused a flap when it showed up on Amazon in November. The book was later removed from the site.
As awful as the book is, obscenity charges are bullshit. Despite not having a criminal record, why not arrest him for doing vile pedo things and not just because he wrote a book about it? I would probably want to run over the guy with my car if I ever saw him just out of general principal, but sending him to Florida over obscenity charges is pretty weak imo.
