Pedophile pastor shot

The stories of Christian hypocrisy keep getter stranger and stranger here at Deep Thoughts. An associate pastor and bible school teacher who also happens to be a convicted pedophile, was shot and killed by the police.

A 62-year-old convicted pedophile shot and killed while holding a flare gun Wednesday was a Sunday school teacher and assistant pastor at a Central Florida church, police said.

Sheriff's deputies and Orlando police officers were performing surveillance on the man, who was wanted on charges of capital sexual battery on a 7-year-old.

The man, whose name and age were not released, showed up at the house, and deputies moved in, Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary said.

Something tells me this might be an example of street justice.

I'll follow up with the predators name when they release an update.

Joe, If he is a convicted pedophile and he lived in Florida. His name HAS to be on some registry somewhere. Go and look for Registered Sex offenders in the area of the Church and you should get a match.

Do you know any new info on what is happening with the Markus McDowell case. I was an old aquaintence, and was disgusted by the horrible acts he committed. Any info on the latest trial info? Thanks for pointing out these pedophiles... sick people.

Mark had a preliminary hearing on Dec 18th where the determined there was enough evidence to proceed to trial. I did not hear what the court date was. I would expect to see something in the April to May time frame.

For the person who asked about the McDowell case, there is no trial date set yet, but this article has the most updated information I was able to find on the web.

Hello! Do you know what's happening with the Dean Tarkington case (Lubbock Pastor?) Has the trial started? I am an old acquaintance of the family. He sexually harassed me via email for almost a year. I knew it was him and after this latest fiasco all of my suspicions were validated.
