http://www.dailydot.com/fandom/dragon-con-edward-kramer-pedophile-ousted/Although it's been thirteen years since Kramer had anything to do with the organization and running of Dragon Con, his position as co-founder meant that he has for years been legally entitled to 34 percent of the con's profits. That income may have bankrolled Kramer's convoluted attempts to evade trial for pedophilia over the past 13 years, during which time he allegedly put other children at risk.
. . .
Kramer, formerly a respected science fiction editor and program director of Atlanta's drug council, was arrested on multiple charges of pedophilia in 2000,(Note: the actual charges were for child molestation. Pedophilia isn't usually a legal term -Jacob) at which point he resigned from his longstanding position on Dragon Con's Board of Directors.
Kramer then began a cat-and-mouse game of court date evasion, alleging illness, medical inability to stand trial, and other procedural delays which lasted over a decade and culminated in his being found by police in a motel with a 14-year-old boy in 2011. Currently he awaits trial in Gwinnett County, Ga., after being denied bond in April. Prosecutors have claimed he's "manipulating the system."
Like a spent gladiator
crawling in the colosseum dust
who can count on his remaining limbs
all the people he can trust.
Like the one who stands behind him
cheering him on
Estatic when he stands defiant,
wild with abandon when he's gone
just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
