Former VICE Journalist Charged with Attempting to Anally Penetrate a 9-Year-Old Boy

A former VICE journalist has been charged with attempting to anally rape a 9-year-old boy, according to a press release from the Department of Justice.

“[Efrem] Zelony-Mindell allegedly attempted to engage in sexual activity with a nine-year-old boy. The protection of children from predation remains of critical importance to this Office, and we will continue to use our resources and work with our law enforcement partners to bring offenders to justice,” said Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, in the press release.

“As alleged, Mr. Zelony-Mindell’s actions are nearly unfathomable. Through a series of conversations with undercover FBI agents conducted on encrypted messaging platforms, he stated his desire to have sex with minor children, and he ultimately met with one of the agents who he believed would provide him an opportunity to do so,” FBI Assistant Director Michael J. Driscoll said.

“Today’s action should serve as a reminder to anyone who seeks to prey on children – the FBI Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Task Force and our law enforcement partners will continue to aggressively pursue you and hold you accountable,” Driscoll added.

When Zelony-Mindell wrote for VICE, he penned at least two perverted articles that were published in 2016, including an art display that highlighted the sexuality of a 13-year-old child prostitute. He highlighted photographer Mary Ellen Mark’s controversial photography project, Tiny: Streetwise Revisited, which centered around “Tiny (Erin Charles), a 13-year-old prostitute who talked of wanting diamonds and a horse farm.”

“For Mark, Tiny became a 30-year focus of turmoil and intrigue that became integral to her artistic practice… What starts off as a portrait of a young girl with big dreams progresses over the years into a life that’s fallen apart through drugs, abuse, ten children, and other turmoil,” Zelony-Mindell wrote.

It should come as no surprise that the accused pedophile Zelony-Mindell was severely stimulated by the art portraying the child sex worker.

“Both Aperture and the exhibition’s treatment of Mark’s photos nurtures this sentiment, as well as another: The work isn’t about a happy story or even inspiring one, but it’s a damn good one nonetheless,” Zelony-Mindell stated.

It should come as no surprise that VICE is giving harbor to potential predators at their publication. These far-left media outlets are getting ready to mainstream pedophilia under the banner of “minor-attracted persons.” They must all be brought to justice before civilization can be redeemed.
