|~ Berlin making inappropriate remarks about Elliot Stabler's children.|
Jake Berlin is the main antagonist of the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episode "Confession". He is a pedophile who runs Pediaphax, a "self-help" website for pedophiles that displays sexualized, but non-pornographic, images of children so his customers can relieve their sexual urges without breaking the law.
Berlin is a pedophile who is attracted to prepubescent girls. In addition to his day job as a medical supply salesman, he is the webmaster for Pediaphax, a "self-help" website for pedophiles that features sexualized, but non-pornographic, images of children so his customers can relieve their urges without breaking the law. The website's tagline is "Look, but don't touch".
He claims to have never sexually abused a child, but nevertheless believes that pedophilia is a normal sexual orientation and that the law should change to permit adult-child sexual relationships.
Teenager Eric Byers emails Berlin asking for guidance in managing his sexual attraction to prepubescent boys, especially his five-year-old stepbrother, Corey. Berlin supplies him with pictures of young boys and tells him that his sexual desire for children is normal, but warns him that he will alert the police if any of his customers go beyond looking and actually molest children.
Special Victims Unit detectives Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson question Berlin about Byers, who had earlier asked them to put him in a sex offender program to keep him from abusing Corey. Berlin and Stabler take an immediate, mutual dislike to one another, and when Stabler insults him, Berlin gets back at him by posting a photograph of Stabler's daughter Elizabeth, which he found on her social media, on his website. Enraged, Stabler beats Berlin bloody, and has to be restrained from killing him.
When Byers posts on Pediaphax's social network that he had raped a little boy in a park, Berlin is angry that he broke the website's rules and goes to confront him. He finds a badly injured Byers, who has been brutally beaten and sodomized by his stepfather, Sean Kelley, who believes he had abused Corey. Byers begs for help, but Berlin slits his throat. Benson finds Berlin's DNA at the crime scene and arrests him. Berlin confesses that he was angry that Byers had actually done something he could only fantasize about, and laments that Byers' victim would never get the help he needed, Benson replies that it is his fault, as he had killed the only person who could identify the child. Berlin is then imprisoned for murdering Byers.
