A man named James Fairbanks has won over the internet after being arrested for the murder of pedophile Mattieo Condoluci.
Fairbanks has received support from the mother of one of the pedophile’s victims — and even Condoluci’s own daughter.
The real-life Dexter was only caught because he wrote a lengthy letter to the media explaining why he did it and vowed to turn himself in as long as they published it.
The letter read as follows:
Fairbanks says that he had seen Condoluci on the sex offender registry while he was looking at a house in the neighborhood. He was upset when he went to view the home and saw the pedophile outside looking at children.
Condoluci, 64, was found dead in his home in Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday after being shot at his front door on Thursday.
This week, Fairbanks, 43, was charged with the first-degree murder and use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.
In a confession email about the crime, Fairbanks, a former Omaha Public School employee, wrote that “I’ve worked with kids for years who have been victimized and I couldnt (sic) in good conscience allow him to do it to anyone else while I had the means to stop him.” The letter was sent to various media outlets anonymously and later posted to his social media.
The mother of one of Condoluci’s victims, Laura Smith, has even started a Facebook group to support Fairbanks. Her son Anthony took his own life after being sexually abused by the pedophile when he was just five years old.
Smith has spent years trying to get justice for her son, who died from an overdose in 2017.
In 1993, Smith had moved in with Condoluci. She made a run to the grocery store late one evening, and when she came home she found her son “violently crying” in the bathroom.
“I knew something was instantly wrong,” Smith told the Daily Beast, recounting how Condoluci tried to claim her son had just “wet the bed.” “My son had never wet the bed in his life. I ended up packing my stuff the next day and when we were leaving my son quietly said, ‘Mommy, I got something I got to tell you.’ I instantly knew.”
The child told her that Condoluci had touched his genitals and forced him to touch his through his clothing.
The child predator pleaded guilty to “attempted lewd and lascivious assault upon a child” in 1994 and was only sentenced to four years of probation and drug counseling.
“It was a 5-year-old man’s word against a 37-year-old man’s word, and he was manipulative, he was good at lying,” Smith said, adding the plea deal got “Condoluci on the sex offender list.”
In 2007, Condoluci struck again and raped a 13-year-old girl. He was sentenced to five years in prison, but released in just over two because of “good behavior.”
Following his death, Condoluci’s daughter, Amanda Henry, told the Kearney Hub that Fairbanks should be sentenced to probation. “Murdering my dad was a horrible thing,” she said. “But children are much safer now, any other child he could have hurt is much safer.”

Henry also joined the Free Fairbanks Facebook group and wrote in a comment “yes it hurts because that monster was my dad but right is right and wrong is wrong and he was so very wrong.”
The Facebook group had nearly 2,000 members by Thursday and the hashtag #FreeJamesFairbanks was going viral on Twitter with well over a million impressions.
A petition to pardon Fairbanks has also already collected over 12,000 signatures. There has also been several GoFundMe fundraisers created to help pay for his legal defense, but the website keeps removing them.
Fairbanks’ defense attempted to get him released on a $500,000 bond due to his lack of any prior criminal history, but the judge declined and opted to hold him without bond.
Fairbanks is currently being held at Douglas County Jail.
MUST WATCH: California Restaurant Owner Blocks Health Inspector’s Car, ‘If We Can’t Work, You Can’t Work’
A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.
A heroic California restaurant owner blocked in a Los Angeles County health inspector’s car after he attempted to shut his business down for allowing outdoor dining, asserting that “if we can’t work, you can’t work.”
Carlos Roman, the owner of Bread & Barley in Covina, did not back down even after police arrived.
“He wants to come in here and say that no one can work, so he can’t work either,” Roman told the officer. “He decided to come today and take photos of the people outside and say that he was going to fine us,” he explained.
Roman refused to move his truck, telling the officer to go ahead and get her supervisor.
“This is what happens when people get desperate. I’m desperate. Who is going to pay her car payment? Who is going to pay my cook’s rent?” Roman asked the officer. “I want it to be hard on everyone. I want everyone to see how hard this sh-t is.”
The outraged owner demanded to know if the inspector and the officer got paychecks last week, asserting that his employees haven’t.
“You’re just doing your job right, we’re all in this together?” Roman asked the inspector. “When I go to the bank, can I tell the bank the health department said it’s ok and that I don’t have to pay you?”
“What do I tell my employees?” Roman shouted.
Roman is now facing two $500 fines for failure to comply and interfering with the health officer.
A GoFundMe campaign to support the restaurant has raised over $20,000.
Hunter Biden’s Ex-Wife, Kathleen, Tells Him He is a Better Father Than Joe Biden Was
In an email to her ex-husband Hunter Biden, Kathleen Biden told her troubled former spouse that he is a better father than Joe Biden was.
The cryptic email was found in a trove of documents currently being reviewed in a joint effort by District Herald and the Nationalist Review, provided to us on Friday by a source who obtained them from former Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“I want you to know that you are a great father – a better father than your dad. Your girls love you because you love them for who they are. You haven’t judged them, you have loved them for who they are. You listen and you make them and their problems important to you. You make them great because you allow them to be who they are without unfair expectations. You are patient, caring, and loving,” Kathleen Biden wrote. “I know you and I have struggled but your love for the girls hasn’t waivered. Remember how we use to joke that the girls didn’t have anything to survive to make them strong and interesting? Well, we gave it to them! They did survive it and they are stronger. Through it all they never questioned your love or commitment.”
Kathleen Biden asserted that the former Vice President “wasn’t perfect” as a father.
“I know you love your dad and I do too but he wasn’t perfect,” the mother of Hunter’s children continued. “No one is perfect. At your core, you taught our girls what was important. They are kind, thoughtful, open, curious, funny, compassionate and hard working. You were as much a part of that as I was in helping them grow. Don’t ever question whether you were as good a father as your dad. You were better, in every way.”
In response, Hunter wrote that he worries he has failed them. “Thank you for this it means everything to me. I worry so much that I have failed you all in so many ways,” he said.
Hunter also acknowledged that he will need to earn his children’s trust and respect back, though the reason is unclear.
“I know the girls love me- but I often wonder if they trust and respect me. I know it’s something I have to earn back. And I know that you are the best mother I have ever known. You have raised three incredible young women. We are so lucky to have them, and I am so lucky to have met you 23 years ago. Thank you,” he wrote.
High School Football Players Suspended for Carrying Thin Blue, Thin Red Line Flags Before 9/11 Game
High School football players in Florida have been suspended from their team for carrying Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line flags during their football game on 9/11 to honor the first responders who died during the attack on the World Trade Center.
One of the young men on the Little Miami High School football team is the son of a police officer, another, the son of a firefighter.
“Were you trying to make some kind of a political statement here?” a Local 12 reporter asked Brady Williams, a senior cornerback, who carried the Thin Blue Line flag.
Two Little Miami football players pay the price for civil disobedience. They were told not to carry onto the field thin blue line and thin red line flags at their 9/11 game. They did anyway. The school has now suspended them from the team indefinitely. #ThinBlueLine #ThinRedLine pic.twitter.com/19y9GAvaxr

“No,” he answered quickly. “Not at all. I was just doing it to honor the people that lost their lives 19 years ago.”
Jarad Bentley, whose father is a firefighter, carried the Thin Red Line flag.
“I was all for it,” he said. “Because my dad is a firefighter, and if it had been him killed on 9/11, I would have wanted someone to do it for him.”
The young men had asked the school for permission to carry the flags on to the field before the game, and the school refused. They were told that if they did, there would be consequences.
Still, the boys did it anyways.
“Listen,” Williams said. “I don’t care what my consequences are. So long as my message gets across, I’ll be happy.”
Local 12 reports that “Williams and Bentley heard from the athletic director Monday afternoon and received an indefinite suspension.” The station said that they had called the superintendent about the boys a few hours prior.
Superintendent Gregory Power claimed that they denied the boys’ request because they don’t want to “set a precedent” for “political” flags being carried out on the field.
“We did not want to place ourselves in a circumstance where another family might want a different flag to come out of the tunnel, one that may be [one that] many other families may not agree with from a political perspective,” Power claimed.
