Jeffrey M Berke..perpetrator of child pornograhphy and abuse. Have you heard about the child victims act? You better hope that they do not pass it in New York as there are many of us out here whom are salivating at the thought of getting you. Oh yeah..and now that so many other teachers like you are being convicted for preying on our children, they are going to go after all of you pensions too. No way should you and Jerry Sandusky be allowed to live off of tax payors money.

He can join the USA hells angels unless he is black that is USA hells angels vote registered sex offenders in as their leaders .

But Black are not allowed in the USA hells angels because USA hells angels are very racist but sex offenders are welcome and the angels even help the sex offenders get support and blend back into the community .

Notice how the perpetrators of child porn and sexual abuse stay silent. Jeffrey M. Berke who has spent his life putting himself in the midst of children with problems now tries to erase his listing as a child sex offender and continue to live off of tax payers. What eh doesn't realize is that there are people beginning to watch and act on behalf of all victims of these awful crimes. Why should Jeffrey M. Berke be allowed to take away the childhood of people than try to live as if he earned something other than a prison sentence. FOILS will be going out for all information pertaining to his case so we can show the world what he really is. Jeffrey M. Berke you yourself on this post said you wanted people to know the truth and were given the opportunity but of course, fail;ed. Now it will be done for you.

Jeffrey M. Berke, convicted offender and soul murderer of children, reported on this blog how he has been wronged. His unbelievable pomposity n the face of is abhorrent actions, much like Jerry Sandusky, is going to be the center of a movement designed to stop allowing educators from using their positions to obtain potential victims and then live off of the public's money by retaining their pensions. As we speak a sty is being initiated using Mr. Berke as a case-study. Did you know that in an issue that is mindboggling to imagine, there is no real requirement or standardized procedure either within the school or without, even in terms of identifying other potential victims. This is particularly terrifying when viewed in the context of what studies have found in terms of this. For example, during interviews guaranteeing complete confidentiality and immunity from prosecution, conducted by Emory University psychiatrist Dr. Gene Abel, uncovered that Male offenders abused girls had an average of 52 victims each while Men who molested boys had an astonishing average of 150 victims each (Snyder, 2000).

How could this be? We will be looking into this and using this blog as a way of insuring perpetrators like Jeffrey M. Berke cannot continue to exist....

Actually, the person who perpetrated the crime against me in my youth was named Jeff Berg. He has now been caught with child pornography again and is on the front page of the newspaper. He is now sentenced to 30 years in prison. In todays culture where its alright to be a member of NAMBLA - here is a message. All those who perpetrate evil against a child in the form of child sexual abuse should receive tougher sentences if federal prison.
Jeff, First, I want you to know that no child should ever be harmed in any way and I hope that you aren't still suffering because of that monster. I don't know if you are talking about the same Jeff Berg, but I am trying to find information regarding what prison in 1976 he was living at. I was briefly married to him and he molested my younger brother. Now I need divorce papers and he is dead and I'm trying to find out where he was when the divorce was granted. Do you happen to know what prison he was in in 1976? Again, whether you are talking about this Jeff Berg (born in 1946) or not, I am sorry for what he did to you.

person 5 you need to understand child pornography is not a victim-less crime, every time those images are viewed the child is victimized all over again., but you for some reason think that is ok. From a personal stand point of being a person who was victimized as a child, it is lifelong torture. constant reminders of what happen, constant fear and paranoia. never being able to trust fully. It is a lifetime of being a victim of those who harm children. Do you not think the children he had pornography of were not victims. are one of thise sickos who think they asked for it, or that their tears are just part of the show. SHAME ON YOU PERSON 5. SHUT THE HELL UP AND STOP DEFENDING A SICKO. BTW I DO NOT KNOW THIS PIG OR ANYONE INVOLVED. I refuse though to let someone defend a sicko and try to make them look like they did nothing wrong

So well said wow. The sad thing is that person 5 is Jeffrey M. Berke and this is the type of stuff you hear from perpetrators like him all the time. Even sadder is how people like him and Jerry Sandusky destroy the lives who have been entrusted to them and then live off tax payer money by maintaining a nice pension. Mr. Berke still collects a pension funded by us but the good news is there is the beginnings of a movement to stop it.

Where are you now Person_5. Silent. Like all the perpetrators of sexual abuse at Penn State? I wonder what kind of investigation was done at the school where Jeffrey Berke worked? Funny how nobody mentions that. How was Jeffrey Berke allowed to "retire" and now one questioned it? Sounds very much like what goes on in most cases. As they all lawyer up maybe someone should ask the question why are the laws of our society designed to protect perpetrators of child pornography and abuse like Jeffrey Berke? I'm sure the most likely response will be silence.

No my response is silent because I'm busy being productive in reality which is where you clearly don't live. People plea guilty because even if you are innocent the risks are too high and this man ha a family and would rather live with lesser consequences than fighting to the death to prove his innocence. Not only was he set up but even those "perpetrators" you speak of I don't believe hurt anyone the real criminals who are making child porn. Did your brain stray to that idea ever? Probably not. But those people aren't talked about are they. The investigation only found videos that someone out there because they did not like him. I agree that people such as yourself should be passionate about an investigation of a real perpetrator and it is quite disturbing people find sick satisfaction from watching children commit these acts. But one could argue these videos are already made public and therefore, like an inappropriate Facebook status, anyone can view it. Your "silence" is just a reason to stand your ground in your argument but not an actual intelligent, thought out thesis.

First of all this isn't Jeffrey M. Berke lol. Okay. Look. Nobody is sitting here saying that it is right to victimize a child and that people who view it aren't Ill in some way shape or form. But I am sitting here defending this man specifically because I as well as many others know the truth of HIS situation SPECIFIcaLLY. I am able to play devils advocate because I see things from the other side. But to those who are commenting creating this monster that the world at this stage is trying to prevent is still the reason why we have so much hatred. Anyway on this subject in particular these children are being victimized but again I would like to draw you and everyone else's attention to the creators of child pornography. It's okay to victimize the people
Who viewed but not the creators and the sole reason they exist to begin with? Why is it that we are all trying to catch a predator when the real predator is the one sitting there with the fucking camera? With this man aside since his case was just a byproduct of the fucked up justice system, others who have viewed but not actually committed the physical
Act should
Get help. We are all humans made of the same stuff. People are sick and I agree should get help but not caught in the monsterous way you suggest. I am not disagreeing with your passion for ridding the world of Ill people as such but if you notice what goes on with issues similar and wars and Isis etc you are going to sit here and tell me they're not any less Ill? Politicians who manipulate and discriminate are not any less Ill? Please enlighten me on the stability you presume to know so much about.

Lol no I just am not ignorant like you. His specific situation everyone knows the truth about so I'm able to play Devils advocate. However I am certainly not sitting here defending someone who gets sick satisfaction from watching a child but rather suggesting the real perpetrators are the ones with the fucking camera making it possible for child pornography to even exist. I don't respond to ignorance with more ignorance. So if you'd like to enlighten me about what it means to be a sicko please do so seems that you know a thing or two about it

So tell me person 5. How did those videos get on your computer? I am interested in your story. it must really be frustrating to have your name and legacy defined as a perpetrator of child abuse. How do you respond to those who say Jeffrey Berkeley victimized them? As paincul as it is such dialogue, even if it delusional, might move the issue along and have people.who abuse children pay for it.

person 5 I must say you have one point. There is probably only one type of person lower than people like Jefferey M. Berke and Jerry Sandusky, child abusers, and that is the slime that make child porn. So of that you are right.

If you are not the one and only Jeffrey M. Berke (and I can understand why you wouldn't acknowledge that you are given your (his) disgusting actions and the fact that all that his left of your name is a connection with the most heinous form of behavior, who are you and most important, what specifics do you keep speaking of. We have done some investigating into the case of Jeffrey M. Berke and the specifics we have found are troubling. Here are the specifics of a perpetrator of child porn and abuse and this is now your opportunity to try and connect the record.

Jeffrey M. Berke, not unlike many people whom abuse children, made a life of putting himself in places where he could gain access to potential victims. The research shows that perpetrators of abuse like Jeffrey M. Berke can have up to 100 victims and spend their lives trying to gain access to potential ones. From our research, Jeffrey M. Berke fits the M.O.

Early in his career he ran a camp, Green Mountain Camp in Vermont, where he had plenty of access to potential victims who were isolated from their families. In the beginning of his career he falsely presented himself as a psychologist who "specialized" in working with troubled kids, for example, kids whose families were going through a divorce. In this role he broke all rules and boundaries, devastating kids and their families alike. From there, he opened tutoring businesses, again with programs designed to deal with troubled kids, giving himself access to more kids who were struggling. Finally, he worked as an special education teacher, again giving himself access to potential victims.

Yes, not unlike the many perpetrators of child abuse, Jeffrey M. Berke spent his life putting himself in positions where he had access to potential victims. And like many of them that get caught, even though he used his position as a public school teacher to gain access to victims, he now lives off the public's money (probably some of which is his victims) by collecting a pension. I am not sure what productive activity he is now engaged in but I'd love to hear.

So person 5, what specifics do you have that counter this? If you truly want to do something productive, help us understand why Jeffrey M. Berke and others like him do what they do. Most importantly, help us understand while they will abuse helpless children when they are caught all they do is deny instead of being a man and taking responsibility for their actions. But we all know men would never do what Jeffrey M. Berke did to kids.
