Dear Kindly Officer-Clown Krupke

But goodnes gracious I wasn't the molested
Black Flag version of "Wasted"

Gee, Officer Clown Krupke
We're down on our knees

Gee Officer Etc. Ad Naseum. Krup you!

Ok...looks like the Kankakee Daily Urinal is farked already. Here's the text of the story.

SPRINGFIELD - A Springfield man who has been a clown, magician, police officer, minister, youth counselor and Big Brother volunteer was arrested Tuesday for allegedly possessing child pornography and sex tourism.
A. Paul Carlock Jr., 57, of the 2300 block of Hedge Lane was arrested in Springfield after an investigation sparked by immigration and Homeland Security officers in June.

According to an affidavit filed in federal court, Carlock was stopped at the San Francisco airport on June 12 after returning from the Philippines. At the airport, Carlock reportedly told immigration officers he had been working as a clown at the House of Joy orphanage in San Isidro, a city in the Philippines.

Because he was traveling from a country considered to be high-risk for child sex tourism and had direct contact with children, the officers asked to look at Carlock's digital camera and his computer. When they searched the computers, they allegedly found numerous pictures of nude young boys.

"The boys were depicted playing, showering, and sitting clothed but with their genitals visible. Some were posing, while others did not seem to be aware they were being photographed," the affidavit states.

When boys at House of Joy were interviewed in the Philippines in September, three boys indicated they had been asleep and awakened to find Carlock fondling them.

Carlock initially told investigating officers that the images on his computer and camera were photos he had intended to edit so they'd be appropriate to show at his church. He said the photos showed that the boys were too poor to afford clothes and that he photographed the naked boys because "that's how they live," the affidavit said.

However, officials found one image marked as edited in which the only change was that the edited version had been enlarged, according to the affidavit.

Officials also allegedly discovered a program on Carlock's computer called "Evidence Eliminator," which authorities said is marketed as being able to erase images from computers to the extent that investigators cannot retrieve them. Carlock reportedly said he used Evidence Eliminator on the advice of a co-worker who said it could be used to clean out files he no longer uses.

A search warrant executed at Carlock's Springfield home Sept. 28 found at least 21 other child pornographic movies, the affidavit said.

Carlock reportedly told investigators he had traveled to House of Joy before and that he also had visited an orphanage in Mexico in 2002, where he clowned in order to cheer up orphans.

A Web site indicates Carlock and his wife go by the names of "Klutzo" and "Smilee" when performing as clowns and that they have been in the clowning business for at least 10 years.

The Web site says the couple provides the "very best in family entertainment" and that "vacation bible schools, Sunday school emphasis and children's church are our specialty."

Paul Carlock also performs as "Professor Paul the Magician," according to the affidavit.

Federal authorities said Carlock spent more than 20 years in law enforcement. His resume reportedly includes: three years as a juvenile counselor with the Illinois Department of Corrections; six years as a trainer with the Illinois Department of Corrections; six years as a Springfield police officer, including four as a youth division detective; six years with the Illinois Department of Revenue; four years with the Illinois Department of Public Health in the child health division; and a period as a Grandview police officer, including several years as that department's juvenile officer.

Carlock also is an ordained minister, originally with the Church of Nazarene and currently with the Missionary Church International.

Carlock also volunteered with Big Brothers/Big Sisters for about two months before he came under investigation. The 6-year-old boy assigned as Carlock's Little Brother reportedly told police Carlock had never touched him, but that Carlock had given him two movies - one of the two of them fishing together and a second that showed naked pictures of boys and girls. Investigators retrieved the DVDs, the affidavit said.

Denise Corcoran-Schainker of Big Brothers/Big Sisters said the organization bends over backwards to check the backgrounds of adult volunteers.

"We run three background checks on all of our volunteers, and all of his background checks cleared," she said. "We do all we can to make sure a child's safety is never jeopardized. We were fortunate the feds became involved in such an early time frame."

In December 1986, Carlock wrote a letter to the State Journal-Register complaining about a cartoon. In it, he said he was a conservative Christian and not ashamed of the fact.

"I am not in favor of censorship, but do feel that far too much 'smut' has been poured into the minds of Americans by all forms of media," he wrote.

"I have spent the past 16 years in law enforcement and related professions. I have spoken with victims and offenders and have read many case histories in which pornographic materials played an overwhelming role in the events that have left lives shattered and homes broken."

Later in the letter, he wrote: "Why is it so unreasonable to assume the government has the right to protect the public from the harmful effects of pornography (especially in light of the vast amounts of evidence to support this claim)?"

Carlock told investigators that his children are grown and said in court Tuesday that his wife had filed for divorce earlier that day. Sangamon County court records could not be accessed to verify that.

I guess he never taught himself how to hide files on his computer (and no, I'm not talking about the hidden file attribute, there is a much harder to detect method).

Well I guess creeps like this screw up eventually, I just figure someone with police experience would know better then try to bring incriminating material through an airport like that.

Did he actually keep the sex tourists in his basement? Why couldnt this guy have been one of those tourists on that doomed plane in Phuket?

Thanks Baz.

Wow, it's always the ones you most expect. But I'm not giving up on this guy. Maybe his name was "Klutzo" for a reason. Maybe on the tour he wandered into one of the huts, slipped on a banana peel, fell on the boys beds, and to catch himself grabbed some underage penis. Then, while trying to get up he forgot to unlatch his hands, and stroked. Even stranger is that the same peel landed exactly underneath his foot and he slipped again. Don't you see, he isn't a pedo, he's just at fault for God playing a terrible, terrible joke. Don't blame him, blame God for being an asshole. First Job and now this. Can't trust him. He's too shifty.

You know, I thought the guy actually had a plausible if dumb defense ("Look, they're poor and run around without clothes on, it' hard to take any pictures of the orphanage that don't reveal anything") . . . and then the article got to:

"A search warrant executed at Carlock's Springfield home Sept. 28 found at least 21 other child pornographic movies, the affidavit said."

No situation is so weird, wrong, or just plain old farked up that it cant be made worse by injecting partisan politics into it.

They classified his original pictures as child pornography as well, so they could be of the same nature. Hell, I bet if the police searched your parents home they could find pictures and videos of you that could be classified as child pornography under the right district attorney.

but protecting Springfield... that gives me the best feeling of all.

Well if they had on him, then there would some reasonable doubt. Add 21 child porn movies in his home and the three kids who said he fondled them in their sleep, and the doubt looks alot less reasonable. Plus I think it mentioned in the article his wife was leaving him, so I don't think even she believes his excuses.
