Pedophiles, Parents, and the Constitution
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Jack McClellan has never been convicted of child molestation, but he’s talked extensively about his fetish for little girls. Angry parents got a court order to keep him away from children in California. Now he’s in jail for his second violation with bail set at $150,000. We’ll talk about public anxiety and private morality in a free society.

When he lived in Washington State, Jack McClellan ran a website entitled, “Seattle-Tacoma-Everett Girl Love.” He advised men on how to find places where they could watch children between the ages of 3 and 11, insisting “it is possible to have these attractions and not be out of control.” Sure enough, at age 45, McClellan has never been convicted of any sexual crime. But he’s now in jail in Los Angeles on charges of violating a court order.
