In Hutchison, Kansas, a 44 year old man has been convicted of attempted rape of a 10 year old girl. Horrible right? The animal... Here's the kicker: <a href="http://www.ljworld.com/section/stateregional/story/114062">she doesn't exist</a>. Oddly enough, what's most interesting about this article isn't the fact that the victim never existed, but the strange turns of phrase used to describe the case. Steven Peterman, the convicted rapist, was caught with photos 'characterized by police' as child pornography. District Attorney Keith Schroeder had to perform 'a little bit of legal gymnastics' to get the attempted rape charge to stick. And in fact, went on to say, 'I couldn't just charge him with possession of child pornography. That was not enough. Huh? Is this the era of thought police upon us?
