Pedophile Island

A gubernatorial candidate in California wants to take one of the Channel Islands (a national park) and make it a place to dump pedophiles, with their own separate society.

Hughes chose the Channel Islands because he believes the maintenance of Santa Rosa Island, the least visited of the islands, is a drain on taxpayers.

According to Douglas Hughes plan, the first group of pedophiles delivered to the island would be put in charge of building the infrastructure. Adrian Glick Kudler of Curbed LA quotes from Hughes' website:

"The first of pedophiles to go to the island would be a lead team for "their society" such as police, fire personnel, judges, fish and game agents, forest rangers, ranchers, farmers, building contractors, surveyors, and the like to establish the "Island" community. This lead team will be responsible for creating a master plan for the "Island". The "Island's" master plan will include the construction of city hall, a medical facility, water department, police and fire departments, as well as provide for the farm, ranch and housing areas."
