It seems that some fine neighbor of mine didn't appreciate that the first Google hit on his name came from a story of a summer-camp rape gang posted on self-styled sex-abuse-counselor / ritual cannibal Vicki Polin's web site.
Said neighbor is innocent, having been two years old at the time. But he has a rather rare name.
Vicki, who was lying to Oprah before it was fashionable, refuses to take it down.
But here's the kicker: The story of summer camp rape is quoted from a 1996 usenet posting by a convicted sex offender!
Polin prefaces the material with this disclaimer:
NOTE: The following information is graphic in nature. It came from an old Newsgroup. The information in the thread has NOT been authenticated. It appears to have come from [... ] who is a convicted sex offender. It is being provided for background information on the mind of a convicted sex offender. During the same time frame that [... ] allegedly posted the following message he also posted some very disturbing personal ads and stories of a more predatory nature which ended early 1997.So, are these real memories of an abused child? Or are they the fantasies of a child molester, attempts, as later suggested in the newsgroup, to use the sympathies of abuse survivors to learn how to navigate the internet and ultimately set up a tryst with a little boy?
Well, here's a clue: the stories cite abuse that happened at a Jewish summer camp and "the nearby WILKINSON reform school in 1977."
So I Googled the Wilkinson reform school, to see whether it was indeed next to a Jewish camp in 1977. And sure enough, just as the child molester described, the Internet tells that after
"four friends pull a prank that that goes awry, they find themselves serving time at the Wilkinson School for Boys, where they are repeatedly and sadistically violated and tortured by four guards--"which would convince me, except that the site continues,
"the most menacing being Noles, portrayed by Kevin Bacon."Yep, the convicted child molester made up the story from Sleepers, a movie released a couple of months before his posting.
So, given the choice between deleting a name in a posting by a lying child molester and saving the reputation of someone who is totally innocent, or mildly censoring her online pornography collection, Vicki Polin bravely chooses the former.
To recap: Vicki Polin has actively chosen to aid, abet, and increase the harm done by a convicted, lying child molester.
I wonder why that would be?
Perhaps it's time for someone working in the Jewish media to find out what's really going on with Vicki and her blissfull unawareness.
