South Park Monster (Part 3)

Carlos Coy has been painted in the media as a serial predator. Someone who has molested girl after girl after girl; the tagline for the article is "Fans saw Carlos Coy as the invincible rapper, the gangsta who could become an icon for outcast Hispanics everywhere. But they didn't know his weakness -- young girls did."

In this article Lomax uses the opinion of Judy Johnson, clinical director for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Sex Offender Treatment Program in Huntsville.  She works for TDCJ, of course. Here’s what she thinks:

In general, Coy's past reflects some similarities with profiles of pedophiles, she believes. Most grow up without a strong male figure in their lives;

You can't be convicted of being a pedophile, ‘child-lover’. Coy was accused of being a child molester. It’s a small distinction, but an important one. A pedophile will always be a pedophile; someone who wants to have sex with children. A child molester may be a pedophile, or may have simply lacked opportunity to have sex with grown women, or may have had sex with a child he believed to be an adult. But Judy wants Coy to sound like a pedophile, an incurable pervert, so she starts drawing correlations and making assumptions.

I assume she’s referring here to the fact that Carlos Coy’s father left the family for a period of about ten years. I don’t know why she assumes that there were no strong male figures in his life. He had family, teachers…But okay, no father means you’re a pedophile. You know who else shares the trait of losing a father early in life? Fucking rap stars. Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., 50 Cent, Sean Combs, Jay-Z.

A year ago, the Pew Charitable Trust published a report that found that 2.7 million children in the U.S. now have an incarcerated parent.

Since 93.2% of prisoners are male, most of those kids are growing up without a father. What does that mean for them? Is the government putting them at higher risk of being labeled pedophiles by incarcerating their dads for everything from murder to having a roach in the car? Talk about a self-sustaining system...guaranteeing government jobs generation after generation.

…they can "groom" associates to ignore the obvious signs of their perversion; and serial pedophiles often establish ways -- even dance studios for children -- to attract more potential victims, Johnson says.

"That's very common for pedophiles to create an avenue where they can have one victim right after another," she says. "It's unfortunate, but a lot of predators create their 'candy stores.’

Oh, my God. Someone call Justin Beiber and tell him that he’s doing it wrong. Apparently the way to attract young girls is to produce raw, obscenity laced tributes to the drug trade, murder, and getting blitzed out of your fucking mind!

Who believes this bullshit? There are easier and more direct ways to surround yourself with prepubescent children than working for ten years to become a recognized figure in the underground rap scene, then somehow convincing a woman who swears in court that she doesn’t like you to leave her daughter with you for the night. How about becoming a school janitor, for instance?
Or a prison guard? Is she really trying to say that Coy became a rapper to surround himself with nine-year olds?

she says that the onset of pedophilia doesn't occur suddenly in middle age, it begins developing much earlier. "They don't say, 'Ooh, she's really sexy, she's really coming on to me, I think I'll just explore this possibility,'" Johnson explains. "The preference was already there. Otherwise, it would have been sort of repulsive."

So where are the other victims? I’m not asking for more teenagers who tarted themselves up to go to a rap concert. I want to know where the other pre-pubescent victims are. According to the Mayo Clinic:

“Heterosexual pedophiles, in self-report studies, have on average abused 5.2 children and committed an average of 34 sexual acts…”

Now these are self-reported studies, so those numbers are probably a little low. According to the Counter Pedophilia Investigative Unit:

A 1994 National Institute of Health survey of 453 pedophiles, conducted by Dr. Gene Abel, showed these criminals were collectively responsible for the molestation of over 67,000 children. That’s an average of 148 children per individual pedophile.

So let’s say that, in spite of the hordes of nine-year-olds who were drawn to him because of his child-luring rap, Carlos Coy was only half as effective as the average pedophile. Then we’ll cut it in half again because he was young when he was locked up, and maybe didn’t have as much time as the reporting pedophiles did. That would have given him 37 victims. Now if he’s a true pedophile, he has a ‘preferential age range’. True pedophiles are not attracted to pre-pubescent AND pubescent children.

If Judy Johnson, TDCJ's expert on Sex Offender Treatment thinks that Coy is a pedophile, there should be 37 more 8 or 9-year old victims out there. All we got, post-sentencing, were the claims of teenage girls, none of which had to be proven, and none of which resulted in a court case. Even the case of the 14 year old who accused Coy of assaulting her after he was released on bail, which should have created some kind of physical evidence, was dropped after the one conviction was obtained.

Well, Judy Johnson is not the author of the article; that would be John Lomax. The problem with Miz, Johnson's bit is that she generalizes and reasons backwards. Still, the author probably ony used the quotes he thought supported his point.
I'd be curious to know what they think of it, as well.

We don't know if Carlos had other victims or not. Just because nothing else was reported doesn't mean nothing else ever happened. Remember when I told you about that post on the Soy Chicano forums? Someone claimed Carlos was molesting his 5-6 year old neighbor? I finally found the link. http://www.soychicano.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2289&page=4

Scroll down and read what ptowntx has to say. It continues on page 5. Tell me what you think.

I've read it, Eric. I don't find it credible, in the same way I don't find videos of pop-singing cats credible.

Anybody can say anything on the ol' inter-webs. That's why I try so hard to provide sources for my information, so people can see that I'm not just pulling it out of my ass.

Eric said...

Obviously the story needs to be corroborated, but I find the guy eerily credible. It's the way he describes the people involved, the fact that Carlos did live in Pasadena around that time, and the poster himself says that he doesn't have a reason to lie.

The reason why I posted this was to refute the argument that no one has ever claimed Carlos has molested anyone else.

You never fail to amuse me with what you choose to find credible.
