AZ Republic: Homosexual child sexual predator gets kid glove treatment


Victimized boys rate no such sympathy

In November 2012, we reported on Christopher J. Wilson, a former Phoenix police detective accused of molesting two underage boys, 14 and 17.

This week, he pleaded not guilty to 10 felony counts of sexual conduct with a minor. Wilson was the police liaison to the Valley’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

In an article headlined, “Officer, held in teen sex, talks to Republic,” the Arizona Republic treats this admitted homosexual and sexual predator with kid gloves.  It begins with a narrative-style recitation of how Wilson, “spends his days in a 12 -by 7-foot cell…pacing, reading and thinking about his life.” To create an aura of sympathy for this monster, readers of the daily are told he is “housed alone, for his own protection…confined to his cell for 23 hours a day, allowed outside for only an hour a day to a small recreation yard, where he says he looks at the freedom he used to have.” The article describes how he served in the Navy and chose law enforcement because he “loved serving the community.”

More to the point, it appears he loved having young boys of the community serve him.

“What I want the public to know about me is that I am not a monster, as the media is portraying me, said Wilson, who spent his 44th birthday in jail,” according to the report.

Ah, what a shame!

“I didn’t use my position to groom these individuals. I am just a normal person trying to live my life.” Although he purchased expensive gifts for his victims, he says, “I did this out of my own good will,” and expected nothing in return.”

This pathetic excuse for a newspaper goes on to recount the commendations, “glowing reviews” and “exemplary work” of this disgusting predator whose acts were correctly described by Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia as “a disturbing violation of our public’s trust.”

It takes reporter Cecilia Chan twenty-one paragraphs to get to the fact that Wilson acknowledges that he knew both boys were underage, and took the blame…although he neither admits nor denies the allegations. He does say he regrets what has happened.  “I would have done things differently,” he said.  “Losing everything that I love hurts.”

Count on this. What he really regrets is getting caught.

While the newspaper engages in empathetic coverage of this vicious predator, the lack of concern for his young victims is glaringly evident. 

Gayness abounds at the República. The anorexic pages, lacking much in the way of actual news, are brimming with one of the newspaper’s favorite topics. Same sex agenda-driven propaganda stepped front and center with the newspaper back January 2008, when Randy Lovely took over as chief editor and VP of News at the daily newspaper.

    Terrible and even more so that there has to be a special Police liaison to the gays.

    • Maggie says:

      This soft coverage of a reprehensible man who has preyed upon children is beyond disgusting. And westnash nails it when he questions the need for hiring police liaisons to interact with homosexuals. I have no allusions about the editorial leaning of this poor excuse for a newspaper, but I would expect more from a police department paid for with our tax dollars. How about solving crimes instead of recruiting criminals?

    “Gay City Officials Accused of Meddling in Phoenix PD Investigation”

    “By Monica Alonzo Thursday, Dec 6 2012”

    “Phoenix police Sergeant Mark Schweikert, supervisor of a former Phoenix police detective accused of having sex with two teenage boys, contends that two city officials meddled in his efforts to deal with the detective’s work problems.”

    “In a 22-page memo, Schweikert alleges that Phoenix Councilman Tom Simplot and Assistant Police Chief Tracy Montgomery, both openly gay, interfered in his dealings with Detective Chris Wilson.”

    • Westnash says:

      This is more of the “Gay is OK” that is overtaking the USA and Arizona. States endorsing Gay Marriage is just the tip of the iceberg and will become common in the next few years. Republicans should not fall or endorse this…..maybe Civil Unions or something similar but never say that “Gay is OK”, especially in schools or where kids are involved.

        Please permit me to use our general agreement in principle on this subject to make a point, Westnash. Here is what is going on with the Republican Party in Illinois:

        “Facing rebellion, state GOP chair rejects calls to resign over gay marriage support”

        “Influential party bosses raise the pressure on Pat Brady amid debate over the future of the party.”

        “January 9, 2013”

        “By: Alex Keefe”

        “The head of Illinois’ beleaguered Republican Party is staring down a revolt from some state party bosses after he bucked the official GOP line last week and urged state lawmakers to approve same-sex marriage.”

        Look at the nature of the arguments being made by some in support of Brady’s position:

        “That has some politicians considering a move to the center on some social issues such as same-sex marriage, said Republican pollster Gregg Durham.”

        “What some voters perceive as extremism on some of the social issues certainly cost votes in November and will cost votes in the future,” Durham said, referring to young voters and suburban women, two key voting blocs. “And there’s a lot of candidates right now doing soul-searching, looking at some of these issues to say, ‘Where are we really on this stuff?’”

        “Some deep-pocketed GOP insiders also seem to agree with Brady on the marriage issue. On Wednesday, former Exelon Corp. CEO John Rowe, a prolific campaign donor, sent a letter to the State Central Committee warning party bosses about the political fallout of opposing gay marriage.”

        “We cannot deal with the issues of fiscal responsibility, national security and individual self sufficiency while making so many enemies,” Rowe wrote, according to a copy of the letter obtained by WBEZ.”

        Do you see, Westnash, how those arguments in favor of Republicans supporting homosexual “marriage” are the same arguments which you make on many issues?

        Do you see now the “slippery slope” of those sorts of arguments? Look what they lead to? Now those arguments are being used as a rationale to support homosexual “marriage”. Where does it stop?

        THAT is why I am always talking about sticking to Conservative principles, lest we lose our way!

  3. American Dad says:

    This depraved bastard has ruined young lives and the Arizona Republic treats him as a victim. What a shameful display from the state’s largest newspaper.


    Otherwise YOU are complicit in continuing this outrageous coverage, giving cover to perverts and allowing victimized children to be further harmed by obviously siding with such monsters.

    • eubykdisop says:

      At the request of one of his alleged victims, a judge ordered Wilson to be tested for HIV.

  4. Arizona Conservative Guy says:

    Where is the perpetually agitated Laurie Roberts? I thought she played the role of advocate…for liberal infiltrators of the GOP such as Kathy Petsas, abused foster care children, the elderly who have been deceived by fiduciaries and money grubbers on the city council who raise their salaries and give the city manager a 33% raise. Why the silence on this homo pedophile cop who used his position of power to get his jollies by abusing boys?

      Well, ACG, do you think that the situation would be the same if it were a heterosexual pedophile abusing girls? It’s because he’s not just a pedophile, he’s a homosexual pedophile. That makes things different. Why? Very simple, ACG. How many pedophile activists or activist organizations do you know of? How many homosexual activists or activist organizations do you know of? There essentially isn’t a pedophile political constituency but there is a homosexual political constituency.

      For a better insight into what is going on, I suggest that you read the article I linked to above:

      Of course, I’m not a fan of the Phoenix New Times but in this case they had the best summary of the relevant facts.

      I have read the entire 22 page memo written by Sgt. Schweikert. That makes things even more explicitly clear but it’s simply too long for most people to wade through.

        I just read the memo in its entirety, euby. Very damning information contained there. The Republic would never print even a part of it since it doesn’t comport with promulgating its homosexual theme. I’m also thoroughly disgusted with the Phoenix Police Department’s command staff. Thanks for the information. I’d not seen it previously.

      • eubykdisop says:

        You’re most welcome, Sgt. Preston (of the Yukon)! ;-)

        Hats off to you for wading into that! Actually, pretty shocking stuff!

  5. LEO IN TSN says:

    WOW, that absolutely scathing condemnation by Phoenix Police Chief Daniel Garcia (“that wasn’t nice”) must still have his speechwriter’s typewriter smoking.

    My question is, “Why does the Phoenix PD have a ‘police liaison to the Valley’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community’ anyway?” What kind of insanity is that?? And then you’re surprised??? What kind of insanity is that???? Is there no purpose for legions of clinincal researchers publishing report after report about…

    Way to go, Phoenix PD. Way to go, Phoenix Law Enforcement Officers’ Association. Anything is OK, as long as he/she pays its dues?

    God help US – God bless America.

    • Westnash says:

      I agree with that comment. How much does it cost the taxpayers to have this ‘police liaison’ and what other ‘liaison’s’ are we paying for?

  6. Tom says:

    For a blog that is supposedly convinced that the Republic is a terrible newspaper that is dying off and losing subscribers, you sure spend a lot of time obsessing over it. It’s as if your existence is predicated by the Republic’s, and were it to disappear you’d be at a lack for things to bitch about. God forbid you do your own investigative journalism, or actually sign your name to the things you write.

    • Seeing Red AZ says:

      Seeing Red AZ is not “obsessing” over the Arizona República. We are, however, exposing the garbage that emanates from this liberal and agenda driven rag that passes itself off as a disseminator of news. This report is slanted to give sympathetic coverage to the perpetrator of deviant acts against boys by a known homosexual liaison police detective using the considerable authority associated with his position to facilitate preying on impressionable children. He deserves far harsher treatment than he is getting from the Repulsive. If one of those boys was your son, would you be so eager to cut him slack?

      This is a blog. We are not investigators, nor do we pose as investigators. The Arizona República poses as a purveyor of news. It is not. We call it as we see it, Tom.

      • eubykdisop says:

        Amen, SRAZ! Right on! Superb response! Statements like that from SRAZ are part of why we are here! Tell it like it is!

    The Arizona Republic is owned by Gannett so we shouldn’t expect anything other than Liberal “news” from it. Here is an example of what a Gannett newspaper is doing in New York State.

    “Inmates using newspaper’s gun owner map to threaten guards, sheriff says”

    “Published January 04, 2013”

    “Law enforcement officials from a New York region where a local paper published a map identifying gun owners say prisoners are using the information to intimidate guards.”

    “They have inmates coming up to them and telling them exactly where they live.”

    “A blogger reacted with a map showing where key editorial staffers live, and some outraged groups have called for a boycott of parent company Gannett’s national advertisers. Ironically, the newspaper has now stationed armed guards outside at least one of its offices.”

    “Newspaper That Published The Names & Addresses of Gun Owners Hires Armed Guards”

    “Jan. 1, 2013 11:22pm Becket Adams”

    “And even after a pro-Second Amendment blogger retaliated by publishing the personal information of Journal News staffers, the Gannet newspaper decided to double down and release even more personal information on New York permit holders.”

    “Further names and addresses will be added as they become available to a map originally published on December 24 in the White Plains, New York-based Journal News,” the newspaper announced last week.”

    “No word yet on whether Journal News plans to release the names and addresses of its armed guards.”
