Today’s topic is a bit more in depth but it’s something I have been working on, so I thought I should share the research with you – Understanding The Criminal Mind. Today I will look at the darkest form of criminality “The Mind of The Paedophile”, I know some of you are easily upset by this subject but it’s a very real part of life and I’d just going to try to bring you some insight into what goes on in the minds of these vile beasts. . .
Paedophilia is a medically diagnosable condition according to some psychology theories and is characterised by adults & late adolescents (persons aged 16 years & above, both male & female) that have an exclusive or at least primary interest in ‘prepubescent children’. A ‘Paedophile’ should not be confused with a ‘Hebephile’, which is a person sexually attracted to a child that is already in at least the early stages of puberty (usually aged approximately 11 – 14 years old). Most mainstream media and members of the public wrongly place all persons attracted to children under the umbrella word ‘Paedophile’, it is in my mind disgusting by any name but as this is a research item I thought I’d share the facts with you.

Paedophiles / Hebephiles do not discriminate race, class, or even looks and according to a colleague of mine at The American Psychiatric Association 85% of this type of offender are male and mainly aged over 30 years old, but this is by no means ‘set in stone’. They are clearly female child sex offenders although interestingly according to a University Research Programme (They do not wish to be named) most females that fit into these characteristics would be more likely classed under the title ‘paedophile’. It seems from our recent research and investigations that there is a clear correlation between these type of offenders and certain psychological characteristics such as poor social skills and difficulties in interacting with others. Many will not have many friends, will be somewhat introverted and if in a relationship at all it will be a superficial one with the partner being more of a ‘companion’ than a sexual ‘lover’.
Convicted serial child abuser Derek Slade (The Headmaster) spent years abusing children gaining sexual gratification from physically and sexually abusing boys in his care administering extreme amounts of corporal punishment. He was a very highly qualified teacher and headmaster of an all boys private school but enjoyed abusing children. Despite being convicted in The UK of more than 50 offences and being wanted in India on over another 110 charges he maintains his innocence and we have revealed that he runs a library service in a prison and donates regularly to the NSPCC. The point I am raising here is that even people that ‘know absolutely’ that they have been involved in very serious crimes will play themselves up as being the ones that have been wronged. In a leaked report from within The Prison System where he was being held Slade is known to be saying that he will appeal his convictions all the way to The House of Lords, see my point?? The evidence is absolutely solid against this man but still he will not sit back and take his punishment as he, like most that have offended sexually against children do not see they have done wrong.
National Crime Agency are fighting paedophiles daily in The UK, but for everyone convicted 100’s and I do MEAN hundreds go undiscovered or worse still unconvicted.
Although some statistics show that child sexual offenders have low intelectual abilities and and self-esteem this is clearly not completely accurate as they are very often skilled manipulators and often have such amazingly magnetic personalities that it makes them easily attractive to adults and children alike. They appear to be trustworthy & respectable so much so that anyone when told of their offending would just laugh and accuse the informant of lying!! Child abusers (for want of better words) often seek to gain power and authority over a child (Hence Derek Slade – Headmaster) because their inner desire is for a child to become a possession. A child to an abuser is a focus of an obsession to the point of destruction. This is where investigators like myself are left following paths into major establishments where these offenders hide as they are positions of trust and respect such as Teachers, Ministers, Reverands, Doctors, Masons, Charity Workers, Community Leaders, etc. Children obviously trust their Scout or Guide Pack Leader as they are respected people to be looked up to, likewise they would trust their local MP or councillor because the adults within their lives vote for and believe in them.
An offender that abuses children will often enjoy being the “underdog” and will let others manipulate him /her to their advantage. He or she may well be highly intellectual but they will act as if they have difficulties and will thus allow them to ‘reach out’ to others, even the most unknowledgeable, vulnerable person for help with every day tasks. It is part of human nature to help others and a child abuser will use this to his / her advantage to slip into a life of a family relatively unsuspected and un-noticed. These offenders will often be very adept at locating ‘troubled or withdrawn’ children, a talent acquired through years of trail and effort and always putting themselves in posistions where situations are most likely to arise. Particularly in cases where a victim is a troubled child there will have been sometime over which the child will have developed ‘feelings’ for the predator because he / she has been there for the child when no one else appears to have been, with the offender often being very supportive of the child during times of sorrow, emotional loss, etc. This often happens when an abuser holds positions of trust such as Teachers, step parent, care worker, etc. Evidence of this comes to light through a dozen or so cases in 2002 where adult men had been sexually molested years before by catholic priests. New York’s Cardinal Edward Egan received a massive storm of criticism when it came out that he defended priests that had been charged with sexual molestation of children, he saw no little reason to “make a fuss” in The Catholic Church.
