The Detroit Free Press reports that Thaddeus McMichael, 21, of Southfield, Michigan was arrested Wednesday after an FBI investigation that was sparked by comments Thad made on Facebook. Comments like, “all cp isn’t rape, Sometimes the kids want it. Most of the time they NEED it,” and “What if I adopt a little girl? I’m sure she wouldn’t mind becoming my sex slave if I take her away from the orphanage.” McMichael reportedly said that these posts were a joke. Ha ha ha, you crack me up, Thad! And COME ON, joking isn’t against the law, right?
According to the FBI affidavit, good ol’ Thad was also “actively discussing child pornography and methods for downloading pornography from the Internet,” including comments on the topic of how to obtain child porn and how to encrypt the images. But still, just talking about how to download and hide your child porn isn’t the same thing as actually possessing it, right??
Too bad the FBI took a peek in Thad’s “electronic media sources,” which I suppose is fancy FBI language for “computer,” and uncovered the smoking gun. Or rather, between 300 to 350 smoking guns, as in that many images and videos of ACTUAL FUCKING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY. Thad sure isn’t doing the already sometimes dubious anime fandom any favors.
The Detroit Free Press reports that Thad appeared in federal court on Wednesday, the day of his arrest. As of Friday, March 2 (that’s today), Sir Thaddeus McPedophile is now free on bond, under the condition that he wear a tether and not use the Internet, which means he can’t read this post. Good thing, too, because I’d be terrified of him coming to rape my children. Actually, I still am.
Parents of Southfield and Detroit, I implore of you: Hug your kids and lock your doors. Scumbags like Thad are a harrowing reminder that such human grotesqueries can lurk in our very own neighborhoods, like an alligator poking its eyes through the surface of the muddy Florida swamps. An alligator that wants to fuck your kids, that is.
