I’m posting sections of a redacted police report from the pastor Chris Settlemoir child molestation case to the conversation thread of my first post on this freak. It offers some startling insight into the mind of a child predator. Settlemoir was a Baptist pastor and leader of the church’s private school. He treated the children who attended the school like his personal playthings.
This report discusses a game Settlemoir would play with the boys called “Go, done, prove it.” You can see how easy it is for a person in a position of authority to wear a child down (authorities call it grooming). Until one day, the pedophile gets the child to cross a line. It’s unsettling.
A word of warning – what follows is graphic.
-------------------------- INTERVIEW OF (NAME OF VICTIM) -----------------------------------
I spoke with (name of victim) alone and advised him that I would like to get some background information and then ascertain a time line of events the best that he can remember.
