- "Welcome to the German parliament, Herr Tauss."

-"Thank you, it's good to be here."

-"Here is your office, your security pass, and your electronic key."

-"Excellent."

-"Enjoy your term of office and your photos of little boys."

-"Thank you, and---ah, scheisse."

Sounds like the pirate was using his peter and got hooked while he was searching for some lost boys.

Counting the molester from Prankster (in the Smoking Gun article), the Fark pedofile trifecta is now in play.

great Headline. Would read again!

Bang up job Subby!!

Two thumbs up; would LOL again.

I thought the headline was just mimicking how Chris Hansen says "there"...

You know he was later exonerated? Along with thousands of brits accused of the same BS, quite of few of them too suicided to enjoy the news.

+1 liter vote.

So I see we are on a way to a pedo trifecta? This headline has much more class than the other one.

I have naked pictures of myself when I was a child. Humm, I wonder if I'm breaking law by having them on my website. I was such a beautiful baby.
 
2009-09-10 11:27:21 AM
So when is it okay to posess child porn? I mean, cops have it, right? Judges and lawyers have it, right? Its okay if it is evidence or if you are investigating something.
 
2009-09-10 11:27:30 AM
A pirate party? And I wasn't invited? Argh.
 
2009-09-10 11:28:04 AM
I don't know if he had fapped to those pics or not, but from what I read on the topic, he was involved in the legislating of the issue.

Regardless of his guilt or innocence, he's fecked.
 
2009-09-10 11:28:36 AM
I love the "research" defense a lot of these pedos claim.
 
2009-09-10 11:28:49 AM
FTA - Tauss quit the Social Democrats... in protest of the party's approval of laws to block websites carrying child pornography.


At least he votes his heart...

vernonFL: So when is it okay to posess child porn? I mean, cops have it, right? Judges and lawyers have it, right? Its okay if it is evidence or if you are investigating something.

Well, it's like everything else: the people charged with protecting us from these violent offenders are entrusted with the "evidence", and we simply have to close our eyes and hum really loudly to believe that none of them ever abuse that trust.

Anybody have the pics of police "destroying" drug evidence in the form of burning large bales of marijuana, while standing down-wind?

And before anyone points out the obvious, yes, toking is different from diddling children. I doubt there's many pictures of pedo judges jerking it to CP, though, so build a bridge and get over the comparison.

From wiki: Party Platform
"The party opposes the dismantlement of civil rights in telephony and on the Internet, in particular the European data retention policies and Germany's new Internet censorship law called Zugangserschwerungsgesetz. It also opposes artificial monopolies and various measures of surveillance of citizens.

The party favors the civil right to information privacy and reforms of copyright, education, computer science and genetic patents.

It promotes in particular an enhanced transparency of government by implementing open source governance and providing for APIs to allow for electronic inspection and control of government operations by the citizen."


Pirate Party. Kind of cool. Parlimentary style politics is so much more interesting with its various minor parties, than the two parties in America. Farkers use so much hyperbole saying... all GOP members are fascists or racists, or the Dems are all die hard socialists. When in fact, in countries like this, you literally could be actually voting for the fascists, the communists or even a computer rights - libertarian party like the Pirates.

Cops, Judges and lawyers don't have access to the uncensored pictures at their homes. They do at work but when and how often they look at them is logged by the server and there is mandatory mental evaluation at least once a year for people working in the missing and exploited children unit since they are exposed to these things so often.

Makes me wonder about those photos my mom took of me on the back porch when I was a baby. I was on my stomach but naked still.

Simple nudity is not illegal so no.

None of this holds true for computer forensics. Nobody cared what we looked at, how often, or how it might affect us. Most of it ends up being fairly harmless, but there are some real sickos out there. Usually "pillar of the community" types, like pastors or politicians. Really disheartening... if you're into thinking about that kind of shiat.

A story about a politician in the politics section? Inconceivable!

Why on earth would it be in the geek section?

GranoblasticMan: I love the "research" defense a lot of these pedos claim.

It caused me to give up looking at computer viruses. You find some clue in some malware and type it into google which comes up with a tag line like it might be useful but when you hit the Ukrainian web site it shows up with a graphic picture of a very young kid being raped. According to a cop I know who tracks this stuff down, the worst thing you can have on your computer is kiddy porn that isn't in their global database since they will assume you are trafficking in it... well except for pictures of kids they know you have had contact with which seems to make the cops want to shoot the perp.

Guys, Rev. Falwell's electro-shock recovery program was pretty taxing, I don't know if I could go through it again. Please stop pushing me towards relapse.

Don't pirates rape and pillage?
They aren't know for their discretion either.


However, I'm sure the pirate's cove union will even this distasteful.
 
2009-09-10 12:21:31 PM
Yes - I have the child porn because I am conducting an investigation into child porn, I was with the child prostitute because I am conducting an investigation into child prostitution, and I was taking the the illegal drugs because I am conducting an investigation into illegal drugs.

The goat?

I don't think he's a pedo, he just messed with the wrong people.

1. Tauss challenges the federal police and its claims that the net has to be controlled by them in order to fight terrorism and child pornography.
2. He conducts research in the child porn scene to document that the www is not even the main way to distribute child porn.
3. Just before the controversial censorship law is up for vote in parliament, the federal police charges him for acquiring child porn.
4. Parliament votes for the law, Tauss switches to the PP.

Link (new window)
"Why is it that Pillage takes the curse of rape? 'The vikings raped and pillaged their way through the north' sounds a lot merrier than 'A gang of Norwegian sailors are suspected of a series of rapes in the Sunderland area'"
 
2009-09-10 12:25:27 PM
Damn. Why did the Pirate Party even let him join?

He has to hurt the cause more than help it...

Then why was he caught with the images on his phone and in his house? There are ways of doing research into even CP without getting on the wrong side of the law, as an MP he should have had enough pull to get some sort of "permit" or agreement with the local politzei. Odds are this guy is probably a pedo, let the German legal system figure it out.

Now he is right about few things. Censorship will not stop kiddie porn. Censorship is a very dangerous road for any democracy to go down. Usenet alt.* is the wild west of the internet, enter at your own risk.

You would be better off using a Virtual Machine. If the machine gets blasted, delete it, reload template VM that's been pre-built. You are back in business in 15-20 minute with minimal risk to your host OS. Unless hackers have gotten very crafty indeed.

Tauss has indicated he will not seek re-election in Germany's parliamentary elections.
He's just acting childish.

Uh, no, not exactly. He admitted to accessing a child porn site, and was placed on Britain's sex offender registry.

The way in which he contacted the scene certainly wasn't smart. There's a shadow of doubt on everything he says now.

let the German legal system figure it out.
Of course, but that won't happen before the election and the passage of the "child porn law" (which creates an infrastructure for the federal police to ban pretty much any site they wish to censor, attacks on file sharing and political extremists in 3, 2, 1...).
