Canadian Pedophile Finally Run to Ground

It’s nice to see that some crimes just don’t escape prosecution and that criminals really can be chased down. Even in places, like Thailand, where we expect pedophiles to live out happy and safe lives.

Residential schools, “Boarding Schools” here in the US, have notorious reputations among Native people: abuse of all kinds, spiritual, sexual, verbal, emotional, and physical were common. The idea was to kill the Indian and save the soul; children were taught like they could become good little pliant wannabe white folks. Of course, it didn’t work that way. Maybe somewhere there’s somebody who went through that and claims it was good for him or her. But, if there is, nobody’s heard of them.

Here's a story from CBC about one creep that finally caught, after years and years.

Accused in residential school sex assaults arrested in Thailand

A Vancouver man accused of sexually assaulting three boys at a residential school in B.C. four decades ago has been arrested in Thailand.

Gordon Irvin Kinney, 65, was arrested on Wednesday, and is being held awaiting extradition.

During the 1960s, Kinney was a dorm supervisor at the St. Mary's Native Indian Residential School in Mission, responsible for the care of 30 to 40 aboriginal boys.

He's been accused of sexually assaulting three of them.

Charges were not laid against Kinney until 2002 after a special RCMP task force was established, and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

However, he had already left Canada by that time and was living in Southeast Asia.

RCMP Cpl. Mike Pacholuk said Thai officials issued a warrant for Kinney last summer, and Royal Thai police had been tracking him ever since.

"We followed him through the Philippines and recently back to Bangkok, and 10 days ago we tracked him to an address in Chonburi, Thailand," Pacholuk said.

Kinney faces three counts of indecent assault and two of gross indecency.

Pacholuk said the three men allegedly assaulted by Kinney are pleased with word of the arrest.

"They are very happy to hear he is in custody and are looking forward to their chance to confront him in court."

It could take months, if not years before he's returned to Canada.

The Mission residential school was one of 15 in B.C. run by churches and the federal government. It opened its doors in 1861 and was closed down in 1984.
