Woman outraged after daughter's picture is posted on pedophile web site

"Stop, or else!"

That's the message from a local mom who is fed up with a self-proclaimed pedophile and his Web site that guides predators to young girls.

Jack McClellan admits he's a pedophile, whose full-time job is trolling for little girls. Once he finds them he puts that information on his site -- it's essentially a how-to guide for pedophiles.

"I'm mad, I'm mad somebody can invade our lives that way and it's okay, it's not okay!" says Sabrina, a concerned and determined Eastside mother.

Sabrina stopped Jack McClellan once, but he's back.

"The main thing -- I think they're cute, a lot cuter than women," McClellan said during a March interview.

Sabrina is determined to stop McClellan again. "I saw the site and the fear started welling up inside of me," she said.

What she saw was her own daughter's picture and personal details posted on McClellan's site. We won't use Sabrina's last name or her daughter's first name to protect the young girl's identity.

McClellan's site is a guide designed to help pedophiles find little girls from Bellingham to Tacoma. McClellan, Sabrina says, found her daughter at her school.

Even more disturbing to Sabrina -- she was with her daughter when Jack McClellan snapped the photographs. She was sitting about 50 yards away and had no idea McClellan was in the area, and no idea he was taking pictures of her daughter.

She warns parents to be vigilant everywhere and if strangers are lurking, ask questions. "I constantly am introducing myself to people I don't know, I tell them why I'm there and I ask 'why are you here?' "

She says challenge everyone, even school districts and their no-trespassing policies.

Now that McClellan's site is up again, Sabrina knows complaints aren't enough. She needs the law on her side.

State Senator Val Stevens says she was outraged when she learned McClellan's site was up and running again. She vowed in March when a Virginia Web provided pulled the plug on his site to keep him off-line.

"It's just a sicko that would want to use children in this manner," said Stevens.

The senator from the 39th District knows McClellan is not breaking any laws -- his first amendment rights allow him to do what he's doing.

So Stevens wants to change the law. She's drafting legislation for the next session. She says right now police officers are protected as Web sites can't post personal information about them.

"Why can't we do that for our children too?" asks Stevens. Her warning to McClellan: Stop or else.

"We're after you, guy, so help me!" warns Stevens.

"I think he needs to be put in his place, I think he needs to stop using children for his own selfish pleasures," says a determined Sabrina.

McClellan has not returned any calls for comment. His web site is now run by a Montreal-based web provider, and on the site McLellan says that because of "death threats" he won't make any public statements about his site.

Since McClellan is using a Canadian web provider, any Washington law could be toothless. Senator Stevens says she's aware of that and insists legislation has to start in our state - then she says she'll push for a federal law.

She's working with local child advocacy group Mother's Against Sexual Predators, who are just as determined as Sabrina.

Ask the ACLU, I’m sure they made sure he could get away with this.

And I would have to agree, if I was a father of one of those children there I would make it my solemn vow to hunt this man down and eliminate him in the most painful and lengthy means possible.

Be sure, there would be no evidence left, and I would have a few rock solid alibis, namely the other parents ;)

I just went to www.zabasearch.com and typed in his name and state, and only 5 Jack McClellans came up. It wouldn’t be hard to track him down, I bet.

That's the problem. Through no fault divorce and a secularisy humanist society, too many kids are without a father or real family structure.

I think he needs to be shot.

You might want to make sure you’ve got the right guy before initiating drastic action.

That is, of course, the main moral issue with vigilantism.

A lynch mob wouldn't take that into consideration. I'm not advocating for lynch mobs. I'm just sayin.

This guy needs to accidentally bump into a door at a police station, several times.

They’ve done it. This link takes you to the anti-jackmcclellan site. A link to his site is there, if you really want to turn your stomach and get your blood boiling.

Well that would be one way to make sure you did actually get the right guy.

Unless he’s not one of the five.

Washington State government is one of the most wackjob leftist types in the nation. State government there is run by radical leftist liberals who won’t prosecute drunk drivers or pedophiles just to name a couple of groups. After all, the 30 ft. high statue of Lenin in Fremont attests to their feelings for America. Although, Eastern
Washington is more conservative than liberal.
