Child porn found on Montana priest’s Nintendo DS
« on: March 21, 2012, 01:17:54 PM »
Good thing we have christians around to remind us where our morals originated...

Quote
A Roman Catholic priest in Montana has been charged with felony sexual abuse of children after sexual images of naked children were found on his Nintendo DS gaming console and personal computer... The priest admitted to a Flathead County Sheriff’s Office detective that he had used the gaming console to view gay pornography.

IM sure this is an isolated matter.  Now back to limiting women getting birth control.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

And banning homosexual marriage, pornography, any religion that isn't *insert onetruereligion's name here*, killing everyone who doesn't follow the aforementioned religion and doesn't belong to the right denomination...
EDIT: And you're right. It's probably an isolated matter. Most priests probably don't have Nintendo DS's.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

A supposed teacher of morals leading by example I see.
Here read a book.  It's free.

Wait a minute, after reading the article, it seems that he got all the images from the internet. He didn't take them himself.

In other words, there is no evidence of any actual abuse or victims, yet he's facing more jailtime than the average murderer.

Yep.  Thoughtcrime is nasty that way.

If you want to have real fun, just use someone else's computer to download a bunch of kiddie porn (set up a remote access terminal, as necessary), clean up your footprints, wait a couple of days, and then anonymously 'tip' the cops on them.

They will presume guilt.  Having that stuff at all makes you evil, evil, evil, and the presumption is that they were raping babies with broken glass every chance they got.  The merest existence of that stuff on any of your computer media makes you guilty of whatever they can imagine.

The cops will definitely confiscate everything electronic that person owns, definitely throw him in jail with a HUGE bail, tell the press all about him (i.e. begin public pillory without any investigation) and the DA will file charges and go straight ahead to a trial, and it will probably end in a conviction.

Any protests of innocence and fighting the charges will result in a much harsher sentence, too.  Adds decades.  Almost a guaranteed 'no contest', which could get a few years off the basic sentence, followed up with a lifetime of being on that 'sexual offenders' list.

Needless to say, it's a convenient package deal if you own 'back doors' to people's computers, like the government does.  Political dissenter?  CHILD PORN!

I agree that it is thoughtcrime, but then you started off on a conspiracy rant. The government is not shutting up political dissidents by planting child porn. We would know. How? They would tell us. They're sent to prison, not the guillotine. They can still make phone calls, write letters, even send emails. If dozens of politically active vocal anti-government types got locked up for the same reason, and they all made the same claim that the government framed them, you can bet it would be in the news.

No, the government is reserving the capability to do so.

When the keys are out there, it's not 'the government' that abuses them.  It is individuals within the government who abuse those powers.

It's the same danger as many of the 'unenforced laws' that are left on the books... it's perfectly 'legal', everyone does it... until some cop or DA decides to 'make an example', because they don't like your haircut.  Then it's enforced, and the courts will go by the letter of the law, not by any notion of 'justice'.

People are very lackadaisical about security and privacy.  OnStar tracks and records their car's location wherever they drive, and the various wireless carriers track and record your position with the GPS in your 'smart' phone.  Just a few years ago, some of the same people who tell me I shouldn't 'worry' about that would be creeped outto find a GPS tracker on their car.  Now they buy one factory installed, 100% capable of the same tracking, only now they'll sell the data to anyone, so no court order is required to 'follow' your, car (or phone) wherever it went.

Stores and malls all over have put up little stickers stating that they will track your cellular signal wherever you go in the store.  You know, just 'collecting' data.

Google recently patented a 'feature' to use a hot microphone on their phone to listen to ambient noise, and come up with targeted ads for you, based on google's guess for what's going on.  So you could wake up with a 'snoring cure' ad on your android phone.  Or perhaps a condom ad.

And those ubiquitous cameras on everything.  They've ALREADY been abused quite nastily on school children in their homes.  Technically the school district said that was not policy.  But that's how the capability to spy with the built in cameras of the school issued computers was used by people within the district.

State troopers in several states will download the content of your smart phone for later review at a traffic stop.  They consider this 'search incident to arrest'.  Lots of people use their portables as their 'computer'.  How would you feel about the police downloading your computer's data ON DEMAND?  The police think it's fine.  The equivalent of carting off all your file cabinets and documents on a whim.

Just wave as all of your former assumptions about privacy and personal space and property go away, if you don't stop and THINK about how your former rights have become 'privileges' that can be revoked, because you gave them away for a sparkly bit of technology.

Don't lecture me about 'paranoia' while you have your head stuck in the sand.  For one thing, it comes out rather muffled.  "MMfmmNNMMMF!"

Pingnak,

Tell me more about the police downloading the contents of your phone or computer on a whim?  How do they do this?
