October 4th, 2013, will forever be known as the day I fell into a giant porn hole. Imagine my surprise when I took my children for an outing with a friend to the Orland Park Public Library to look at books, surf the web and just have a relaxing afternoon. Instead I discovered an adult “masturbation lounge” lurking within a few hundred feet of the unsuspecting teen area.

I would like to briefly note that none of this would have happened if the librarian who rudely chased me out of the children’s area (like an angry ghost haunting the stacks) would have just let me use a computer there like I had very nicely asked. I would have never known about the library’s terrible porn policy (they don’t have one) or about the numerous sex crimes that have occurred there (many, going back years and years). They could have continued catering to pedophiles completely unmolested carefree, but for the rudeness of a single employee, who will be forever be known as Kathy the Library Poltergeist. I would like to take a moment to formally thank this harridan on the taxpayer payroll. Without her this story would still remain buried in the sticky recesses of the Orland Park Public Library’s “masturbation lounge.”

Instead of being able to use a computer in the children’s area with my children, I was ordered upstairs to the adult computer area with my children (whom I did not take with me on instinct and left instead with my friend in the more appropriate children’s area). When I saw the oiled breasts on the computer screen of Drooling Mouth-Breather (as he will forever be known), I took my eyewitness account to the front desk. Instead of being handed an “incident report” to fill out (that I later discovered are kept in giant overflowing envelopes) I was told, “We have a lot of those,” referring to sex-crazed porn addicts.

Have a nice day!

This launched what is now going on a month-long investigation that has revealed some extremely disturbing and possibly criminal activity going on at the Orland Park Public Library (OPPL), paid for by the taxpayers of Illinois.

As I hurried my children out of that den of iniquity, I was already planning a letter of complaint to the village, the library board, the library director, and anyone else I could interest in my horrifying experience. I fired off the missive to every email address I could find. I followed that up with a Freedom of Information Act request for complaints against the library, police reports involving sex offenders, library policies on porn, internet policies, and anything else I could think of to help explain this bizarre and dangerous situation where a building full of children (many of them unsupervised after school) could also be a place where pornography addicts go to get a fix.

The Orland Park Police Department was the only department that responded to my FOIA request in a timely manner. Neither the library board nor the library director, Mary K. Weimar (mweimar@orlandparklibrary.org), has responded to my letter of concern to this day.

The police reports that came back were terrifying but not surprising. The Orland Park Public Library has been for many years a haven for sex offenders who feel very comfortable exposing themselves to women and children and masturbating in public in the library.

Worse, the library’s internal reports show that there have been at least four instances of sex crimes committed in the library and library staff chose not to call the police. In fact, in two instances they sided with the offender instead of believing witnesses. One of these reports involved a man allegedly viewing child pornography. There were two witnesses and library staff chose not to call the police.

Because of other bad library policies, the computer histories delete automatically when the computers are turned off. Thus, the evidence was lost forever. And if they had found the illegal activity, they would not have been able to trace it to a specific user since there are no requirements to show an ID or a library card in order to get an anonymous login number where no one will ever know what you do. (Psssst… al-Qaeda! Orland Park Public Library is the perfect place to plot your next attack! Not even the NSA can figure out who you are!)

My colleague Kevin DuJan (who was with me that day) and I scheduled an opportunity to speak about what we witnessed at the next library board meeting. The library held all the requested documents until the day of the meeting so I wasn’t able to read all the incident reports and speak about them at that meeting (and that’s fine. They don’t know yet that I’m coming to the next one). We were met with open hostility and stony silence.

If you ever try to petition your local government for redress (which appears, conveniently, in the Constitution as your right, despite the opinion of OPPL’s terribly uneducated attorney, Jim Fessler, who thinks I have no right to demand answers from this august board), this is how they will act. Be warned. The upside is it’s really fun to watch them make mistake after mistake (on camera) and wind up in a public-relations nightmare. Imagine if the supervisor on staff on October 4th had taken the time to actually address my complaint instead of setting up the wall of silence and pretending that they are untouchable, unquestionable gods reigning high above the huddled masses that deserve nothing but disdain. All that did for them is put them on the side of sex offenders.

For your viewing pleasure, I submit to you my great adventure in front of the OPPL Board of Trustees. Pay close attention to the derision and sneering hurled at me at every opportunity. And stay tuned for much, much more in the coming days and weeks. I have barely scratched the surface of this cesspit.

Since child pornography and public masturbation don't ruffle any feathers, you might try upping the ante. Next time you go in, ask the person in charge of periodicals for the latest issues of Guns and Ammo, American Handgunner and Soldier of Fortune. THEN you will see some swift, effective discrimination in action.

The administrators who covered up Jerry Sandusky are awaiting trial. It is a crime for officials to not to report child sex abuse. One would think that it would apply to librarians in their official capacity. (I'm not going to delve in to the moral aspect of reporting, as these people clearly have no morals.)

I'm guessing that the library board is an elected position? Time ot clean house. And if they are appointed positions (by the mayor or town council), time to demand change and if not made, use that for the next mayoral/council election. As in "mayor Soandso supports pornography and sexual perversion at your public library". Or "Councilman/woman whathisface supports child porn at public library, time for a change."

You get the idea.

"Also, it says you will not access things that are offensive to other people but it doesn't describe what that means. That's very subjective and clearly they don't mean pornography because they don't care when you complain that it is offensive to you."

Ms. Fox:

Do you see the problem inherent in government policies making subjective judgements as to what is and is not offensive?

Let's all be reasonable. There should be an adult section of the library where anything legal is acceptable and public masturbators should be arrested. People should be able to walk past with children. This isn't a big challenge.

Personally, I don't want others telling me what legal material I can and cannot access, offensive or not. Porn consumers pay library taxes too.

Your treatment by local officials is unacceptable and I urge you to demand fairness.

Years ago I read a story about a library built by the Hormels of the Hormel meat company. The library had what amounted to a porn section right next to the children's section separated only by a low divider. Some parents had complained about the leering men in that section but nothing was done. I haven't bought a Hormel product since. That story may be on the net though I originally saw it in print.

A Lockport native posting. Sorry you have to deal with this. A very quick search of IL laws on child porn, sex crimes in IL statutes left me with nothing helpful to report. You may have to resort to shaming the porn viewer and the library board. Try A little posse to catch the pervs and make a verbal ruckus, take their picture, get their name, if possible and shame them throughout the community. Often these local boards will reflexively move away from PR pain. Administer some.

Welcome to post-modern, critical librarianship. Let us hasten the day when libraries are no more.

Libraries themselves are a good thing. What needs to be got rid instead are the liberal morons who run them.

Your friend Kevin Dujan appears to be the same Kevin Dujan who falsely accused a Chicago man of being a porn actor:

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20130912/uptown/cps-racism-gay-pornography-allegations-against-teacher-unfounded

Mr. Dujan wasted a lot of people's time, so it's perhaps understandable that you and he were met with coldness by the library board.

Remember, when you falsely accuse others, you don't just hurt their reputations -- you hurt your own.

"Balof is an openly gay teacher who moonlights as a standup comic and emcee at Sidetrack Video Bar in Boystown and has used drag as part of his act. Years before becoming a teacher, he also acted in independent films that featured sexual content, but are not considered to be porn productions. Ties to pornography have led to other teacher firings nationwide."

I have a feeling he won't be suing DuJuan.

That's because if he sues, he'll lose and he'll have to pay our attorney's fees. He is a porn actor. I have the film. I also have photos of him masturbating giant Ernie and Bert puppets...and a lot more. We are still investigating his story but I assure you it is not "false" and if you think CPS (Chicago Public Schools) tells the truth, you haven't been to Chicago.

I knew he had done it when they said Balof was deciding whether to sue. If you're innocent, you don't vacillate. You sue.

So just put blinder screens on the display so no one else can see what's there....and shield the desks.

Who cares how others get off....just stay out of my space ( and yours )....

Here's an idea for you Gellero. Let's keep all sexually explicit masturbatory materials out of our public libraries since children often have to go there for school projects. Perhaps we can put those materials someplace like....well a porno store, where children aren't allowed.

Even if an Internet browser's history is deleted upon logoff, the files from that user session may still exist on disk, invisible to the operating system, just marked as available disk space for the operating system to use as needed. Police officers (and others) have access to special software to recover those files in an investigation of a possible crime. As an IT administrator I gave a police investigator access to an employee's computer and watched him retrieve files from a formatted and zeroed disk.

I wouldn't call this 14 minute video a "metaphor," because it's real, but it is a perfect snapshot of the modern degenerated relationship between citizen and state under Obama. The State's incompetence, contempt for the public and taxpayer and in-your-face arrogant entitlement is all here.

Great work. Thanks so much for this. I'm very interested in your further reporting on this.

This seems like a television, radio, and print story. I hope it goes well for you.

there are a few libraries in my city with horrendous child hazard problems. It's sad- the city keeps spending money to spiff them up, but not enough to keep them safe. I would not take my kids there now. We went to one when it opened- lovely, lovely building- now rendered uninhabitable by monstrous predators.

Good Luck!
