A 170 page manual, with instructions on how to find and molest children, is being passed around on an email listserv. Police in Orange County, Florida are horrified by this discovery. They have no idea where it originated, but they hope to track where it goes. WFTV-TV in Orlando interviews Det. Phillip Graves, a sex crimes investigator, who says this booklet is one of the most disturbing things he’s seen online. The author calls himself “the mule” but police have no idea who he is.
The story is generating outrage and buzz about First Amendment rights. Investigators say sending the manual by email or possessing it is not a crime. You can guess the reaction from a website called shuddup.com.
