"WIPES EGG OFF FACE" AFTER CASE
Anatomy of a nightmare: The year is 2025, just after the end of World War III. The United States and China have fought to a bloody draw, with much destruction on both sides. Radical Islam has overrun all of Europe and the Middle East. In America, "Big Brother" is everywhere. The USA has become a fascist state and privacy and civil rights are obsolete. The most feared entity is the "thought police," followed by the much-hated "anti-sex" patrol.
It's the middle of the night. A squad of jack-booted, black-clad storm troopers kick down the door of a private home on the island of Guam.
"You're under arrest," the thugs shout at a U.S. Air Force officer and his frightened wife. "We have been informed you are perverts," the menacing cops announce. "We're here to confiscate your pornographic magazines and separate you from your children forever!"
And they do, after tipping-off the controlled "news media," who portray the married couple as "evil incarnate."
Sound preposterous? Absurd? It can't happen here? Well, it already has, dear reader. Earlier this year. On Guam.
THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS AS THEY SEEM
Capt. Michael Dunlop and his wife Kendall were portrayed by the press as the lowest form of monster. Investigators inferred the young couple were photographing and exploiting their own children - boys aged 3 and 5 - for "porn" purposes. Why, how low can one go?
We were told that - hold your breath - 1700 explicit "images" were confiscated from the Dunlop's computer, as well as "dirty magazines" and, shudder to think, "sex devices." Get out the rope! Let's string them up.
But wait! After the dust had settled on the media circus and the screaming headlines (ours included) had subsided; after the sensational radio and TV reports had been broadcast far and wide, the TRUTH started to leak out.
MilitaryCorruption.com didn't have our own C.I.'s (confidential informants) "on-scene" for this particular story, as we do in most cases, so that made us dependent on sometimes unreliable sources. And when the Air Force and local cops want to make something bigger than it is, they can usually count on the local media to splash the headlines.
The many thousands of you that read our initial story (see "related stories box" below), saw where we reported the Dunlops had been arrested on two counts of second degree "criminal sexual contact" - a first degree felony; taking photos of minors in sex acts; use of one's own children in "obscene acts," a first degree felony; and two counts of child abuse; a misdemeanor.
The couple were both jailed on $100,000 bail and whispers started that the Dunlop boys were "acting out" sex acts they allegedly saw their parents perform or taught them to do for the camera. All of that is false or misleading.
ANY "CRIME" COMMITTED, IT WAS
You take any little children that young in age and "interrogate" them for hours on end, ask them leading questions, and try and put words in their mouths, you're going to be able to indict a ham sandwich. In this case, the five year-old allowed as to how his parents took pictures of him without his clothes on.
Out of 1700 supposedly wicked and wanton "images" confiscated by the Guam cops, sicced on the couple by the Air Force OSI, was two charming photos of a younger boy "nursing" at his mother's breast. It turns out the photo was snapped back in Texas, long before the Dunlops were transferred to Guam. Duh! That kind of messes up the jurisdictional issue, doesn't it? Woo! Hoo! A total of four - that's right - just four photos could even be considered questionable, and each pose can be adequately explained, if one is willing to listen.
However, the instigator of this witch hunt, we have learned, is an unstable and vindictive person who contacted Air Force authorities and filled them "full of bull" about what was supposedly going on in the Dunlop home.
Remember the awful porn magazines and "sex devices?" They were found by the rampaging cops put away, out of sight of the youngsters, in a bedroom closet.
Here are the FACTS as we know them:
What there was, was: (Hi, Bill Clinton - we know you read us.)
In a police transcript, parts of which were leaked to us by sources other than the Dunlops, one boy says his father "doesn't wear clothes" at home, but the rest of what the young boy said: " . . .Dad wears his work clothes at home" was not included. See, changes the meaning 180 degrees, right?
It must have been frustrating to the gendarmes when the three year old could not and would not "corroborate" his older brother's "taken out of context" statements. After all, they both live under the same roof! Wouldn't their stories jibe?
FELONY CHARGES DROPPED AS
Well, as of press time, the felony charges have all been dropped and the Dunlops - deeply traumatized by the ordeal they have gone through - are back home. The case is far from over, however, as the family's name and reputation has been destroyed forever. Neither adult ventures into town (Agana) where gossip is still at fever pitch. We don't necessarily blame KUAM-TV and the Pacific DAILY NEWS for the sensationalistic coverage. After all, it wasn't their fault. They were depending on the Air Force and local cops to be accurate and truthful.
As for Capt. Dunlop's military career, that's pretty much over no matter how this case turns out. He already is facing mounting legal bills. His children, whom he and Kendall love dearly, need to be returned to them as soon as possible. If anyone has been "harmed" in this incident, it has been them. But NOT by parents who adore them. By a "system" out of control and a "politically-correct" mentality that seems to say "guilty until proven innocent."
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The odious Feres Doctrine
is a hated bit of anachronistic law dating back to 1950, which shields
the government (i.e. military) from being sued by active duty personnel,no
matter what harm has been done to the "victim" or how much
proof of injury exists. We are told the Air Force will "hide
behind" this statute if faced with a law suit down the road.
The Congress of the United States would be doing a worthwhile thing
if this onerous rule - that no entity could get away with in the
civilian world - was amended or rescinded].
