    Man who wrote 'how-to' for pedophiles arrested

    (CNN) -- The man behind a controversial book considered a "how-to" guide for pedophiles was arrested in Colorado, officials in Florida said Monday.

    "You cannot engage or depict children in a harmful relationship," said Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd as he described the Florida obscenity statute that officials used to charge Phillip Greaves with distribution of obscene material depicting minors engaged in harmful conduct.

    The self-published author was arrested in Pueblo, Colorado, on a Florida felony warrant after undercover detectives in Polk County purchased and received a copy of the book through the mail. He will have to be extradited to Florida to face charges.

    Judd said the book was Greaves' last copy, which he autographed before sending out.

    Greaves and his book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover's Code of Conduct," gained national attention earlier this year after Amazon.com defended selling the book on its website despite angry comments and threats of boycotts from thousands of users.


    Amazon pulled the book from its site in early November.

    "He actually provided a how-to guide to commit sexual battery against children," according to Judd, who said he was shocked and mortified by specific examples and illustrations using 9- and 13-year-old boys.

    Judd said he was frustrated that Greaves' book was protected under freedom of speech laws, even though it was created "specifically to teach people how to sexually molest and rape children."

    "There may be nothing that the other 49 states can do, but there is something that the state of Florida can do ... to make sure we prosecute Philip Greaves for his manifesto," Judd said.

    Officials said the book talked about safe sex and avoiding injury to children, grooming and preparing children for sex, and teaching children how to lie to their parents.

    Judd said Greaves' book outlined a "code of ethics" that showed pedophiles how to look for the most vulnerable children.

    I'm wondering if Mr. Mister was able to get an autographed copy. You know, for research purposes.

    ^ I hope all of the above happens to him but I think it's gonna be a real stretch to convict him . . . should they get a conviction at the distrist/state level, the appeal process might well see him clear

    I just checked and it's available as a PDF torrent file, so he succeeded in publishing his manifesto.
    Faith, by itself, isn't a good enough reason to believe. Instead, a belief must be defensible through reason, logic, and evidence.
    The idea that faith is somehow justified by the fact that the beliefs cannot be proven is a truly Orwellian position to adopt - not to mention intellectually and ethically dangerous.

    It's the problem with true freedom of speech. It's hard, but at some point you have to make a choice.

    It's a subject for a more formal debate and that's for sure. Did you see The Doha Debates on BBC this week? Freedom of speech and education being the means of accessing/utilising it. This is the sort of thing they should have set their great minds to.

    Kind of a limited scope there by definition, eh?

    Parts of the gulf are host to some quite high brow stuff these days - with commensurate expenses claims.

    Only the most expensive environmental..ahem..'lobbyists' welcome, for example.

    I'm surprised 'Big Al' hasn't been a more frequent visitor.

    Yep - and the BBC...well, whenever the BBC posits anything in a 'debate' context, I always, always, know that the answer will be classic bien pensant BBC.

    I have the internet now. I can look at funny YouTube videos of kittens all day now. Screw the BBC.
