I almost put this in general conspiracies because it almost seems like it. I have to say, I am very uncertain how to take this, based on what the
story here presents. Take a look and see what you may think as a reader?
Harry McMillan had been in his second year of law school at Southern Illinois University when posted the ad in question on Craigslist.
An undercover officer answered and arranged a meeting at a movie theater with someone he said was his daughter.
McMillan arrived at the theater to meet the undercover officer and "the daughter," played by a female worker in a state agency.
When the woman went to the rest room, McMillan asked for the nude pictures of her that he had requested. The officer handed him an envelope and
McMillan was arrested when he attempted to open it.
Now this part sounds pretty straight forward. Anyone who has watched a few episodes of 'To Catch a Predator' knows these people come from all walks of
life. I saw a teacher, a trucvker (who arrived in his Covenant Transport bobtail... nice touch..lol) and even a Marine NCO. So, a law student wouldn't
be a stretch by any means. Just more pervy meat for the prison grinders....except?
At trial, McMillan claimed he had posted the ad to lure a child molester whom he could confront. McMillan claimed that he himself was a victim of
childhood sexual abuse and wanted to ask the molester questions pertinent to his own experience.
McMillan's claims didn't persuade the jury, which convicted him after a three-day trial.
This would be a good time to mention just what his Ad said, which is what really hits me as the strongest piece of evidence to make me question it all
and wonder if he really was doing what he claims. See, you'd think pervy people would be subtle. Quiet. Careful. You'd think people who actually do
these things and have given thought to being on the defendant side of a courtroom wouldn't take stupid chances or advertise what they do for God and
everyone to see. His ad title?
"Sell me your teenage daughter
Now does that sound like the ad title "Chester the Molester" would drop to seriously troll for victims....or like what a naive law school student who
didn't know squat or how much of that he didn't even know yet, might post?
I'm just curious what others think, by reading it? Perhaps it wouldn't even strike me as odd here except for a very good book I read with real insight
about Manson, Gacy and others. That was also a University student...Law, I believe. He'd run off to make pen pals and put together a study which also
became a book about the experience. Much like this though..he just thought it up and did it, not asking or informing anyone in the start.
I just wonder sometimes.... Can some charges be so inflammatory by their very nature, that the rare case of things not being what they might
seem...won't even be seen or considered for the blur of disgust the topic itself generates among even professionals?
