Protesters outside Atlantic City mayor’s home want answers in child porn case

A small group protested outside the home of Atlantic City’s mayor Saturday afternoon, calling for him to resign for allegedly protecting a now-convicted child molester.
Ka’yan Frazier is in federal custody awaiting sentencing in a child pornography case involving at least one local child.
That boy met Frazier while a student at Pennsylvania Avenue School, when Mayor Marty Small’s wife was principal and her cousin Frazier was a substitute teacher.
La’Quetta Small reported Frazier, who is her cousin, two months after first learning that he was having the student sleep at his home, which violates district policy.
The boy’s mother recently filed suit against the Smalls, claiming that her son was assaulted at least once inside a bathroom at the home when Frazier lived there. The Smalls have denied the claims, and already have a pending defamation lawsuit against political foe Craig Callaway for making similar allegations.
“This house is a crime scene,” Callaway said while outside the home Saturday. “This house is where a homicide took place. A child’s innocence was murdered in this house.”
He said both Smalls should be criminally charged.
Several police officers were on the scene as Small came out of his house and got into the back of his city-issued vehicle without addressing the crowd.
“The child molester protector,” Callaway repeated.
Small continued to remain silent, while rolling down the black-tinted window of the SUV, looking at the protesters.
He did not respond to requests seeking comment.

“It’s time now to make a citizen’s arrest to what has happened,” said local activist Steve Young, who coordinated the protest.
“When you get selective security, they work for the mayor at the same time our children are being abused,” he said.
“Over a thousand videos and pictures that’s been shown all over the country, all over the world,” Young said of the images and videos Frazier uploaded of children being sexually abused. “And how do you feel about not speaking up over an issue like that.”
He then asked where the officers were in protecting Frazier’s victims, claiming they played a part in “protecting a child molester.”
Callaway then addressed the officers.
“Where were you? Where was the police when our children were being molested?” he asked. “Where were you?”
The Atlantic City Board of Education currently has an independent investigation into Frazier’s employment and the circumstances surrounding what led to his firing.
The protesters also called out Gov. Phil Murphy for not holding the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency responsible for its part.
After an investigation by a DCPP unit, they not only found no wrongdoing but hired Frazier as a caseworker eight months later. Frazier was a state Department of Children and Families — which includes DCPP — at the time of his arrest.
