VICE published an article on prison fights written by a man currently serving 45 years in prison for “three counts of sexual abuse of a child under 16,” on Friday.
The article, titled “My Gay Prison Gang Fights Neo-Nazis,” was written by convicted child molester Dennis Mintun. In the article, Mintun brags about how his “Rainbow Warriors” prison gang fights with neo-Nazis in prison.
Then, at the very bottom, VICE reveals that the 56-year-old Mintun “is incarcerated at the Idaho State Correctional Institution in Boise, Idaho, where he is serving a 45-year sentence for three counts of sexual abuse of a child under 16.”
“On July 22, 2002, Mintun induced three boys, ages seven, nine, and ten, to touch and/or be touched and kissed by the other boys with the intent to gratify Mintun’s sexual desire,” claimed an online record at FindLaw, which indicates Mintun was charged in 2007. “Mintun took photographs of the boys touching and kissing each other. Two of the boys were brothers and the third was a cousin, and at least one was a nephew of Mintun.”
“Count IV alleged that, on a different date, Mintun committed sexual abuse by inducing the ten-year-old boy to watch and photograph Mintun while Mintun masturbated,” the report continued. “Mintun testified at trial and acknowledged taking pictures of the three boys, but said that his affection for the boys was not sexual and that he saw nothing wrong with brothers and cousins kissing and hugging each other. Mintun was convicted on all counts.”
Breitbart News has reached out to VICE for comment.
VICE is not the first mainstream media outlet to publish content from a self-confessed pedophile.
Salon has published several articles written by “virtuous pedophile” Todd Nickerson, including, “I’m a pedophile, but not a monster,” and “I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine.”
In one video, Nickerson detailed how he “fell in love” with a child he was babysitting, and how he was forced to “masturbate in the bathroom” to relieve himself while looking after her.
Last year, Salon deleted the articles, and claimed they were published under “old management.”
