One nagging question...


If Ray Buckley was so innocent, and he had no idea why the police would be banging on his door, why would he rip up porn pictures and flush them down the toilet as the police were coming?

reply

If you were accused of child molestation, rape or any other sexual crime, you too would get rid of any porn you have in your house. Because, no matter what your opinion of porn is, it's a normal thing for people to have, but when a sex crime comes into play, it's suddenly a sign of the person being deranged and and dangerously obsessed with sex. Even sexual content featuring adults will be used to make an accused child molester look sexually deranged.

It's a natural response in a very stressful situation were even being honest about watching and/or owning porn, just like most other people either do or have done, can hurt you.

I think the OP's point is that, at that moment with the police at the door, Ray had no idea that he was going to be charged with any sex crimes (presuming he was innocent).

Peggy Buckey testified in court that she would often check to see if Ray Buckey was sexually aroused, after he'd entice kids to sit on his lap, when wearing his shorts with no underwear. She referred to her son as "a troubled young man trying to find his way in life".
She also lied that she only worked at the school for a few weeks, when payroll records showed that she worked there for several years. Virginia McMartin's Granddaughter believed some of the kids were abused. Severed rabbit ears were found in one suspect's house and a black robe, which the kids did testify to.

The story isn't as clear cut as either camp make out, from what I can see.

If he was in fact..truly innocent, then he would not have reason to flush porn.As a matter of fact, having "normal" porn..such as adult on adult, would that not show his innocence more?

He was an awkward guy who knew he was under investigation for sex charges and didn't want to look "like a pervert". "Normal porn" may be "in" now but in the 80ies during the Regan era... you were labeled a perv for just buying Playboy.

Also, in an abuse investigation, there is no such thing as "normal" porn. A lot of pedophiles have regular porn and that doesn't make them look or be less guilty.
