I guess there is some honor among thieves. I hope the burglar gets a lenient sentence for his service to his community.

should have had a tag like the link that was submitted yesterday. Not so much for being a burglar, but for sucking it up and turning himself in for the greater good.

Surprise!

A would have waited in the apartment and butchered the asshat when he came home.

There's only so many things I can say in response to this. You know, things that won't result in a ban.

weird. too much of a grey area for the HERO tag... but yeah.. I would have waited in the apartment... beat the shiat out of him.. then tell the cops that I went over there cos some anonymous stranger told me the dude had pictures of my sister.
 
2003-10-29 10:22:19 PM
Sounds Minority Reportish... I'm suprised the burglar didn't gut that mother farker.

I don't agree. He's still a burglar, he just happened to rob the home of a pedophile.

Bizzaro, Bizzaro, Bizzaro...

Theres lots of farked up people who try at least to do some good in the world, but you sure dont hear of many child molesters doing any, by committing suicide like they should. Come on, guys, take one for the home team, cant'ya? Think of all the pain youll be sparing the world, and all youve got to give up is some 2 year old poon.

The burglar probably didn't discover the pics until he returned home to examine the "loot". It is very sad that for 1 his young daughter was sexually molested, and 2 he is still burglarizing homes for whatever reason. Makes me feel terrible to think my daughter could go through this, without the burglar father of course. ;)

Robble Robb...... Oh shiat, I didn't see nothing

It's not that bizzare. The guy was a known sex offender who lived in an apartment complex. The burglar probably had a good idea of the stuff the old guy had and knew his schedule well. What's really weird, though, is that this guy was a registered sex offender and people still let him around their kids (either knowingly or they left their child unattended in a complex with a known child rapist living there). Aren't they supposed to send letters out to everybody he lives near? That's how it works in Michigan. Sometimes they force you to put a sign on your house, too, but since he lived in an apartment I guess that wouldn't fly.
 
2003-10-29 10:27:59 PM
There had to be a smarter way of going about getting this guy busted, instead of turning himself in.
 
2003-10-29 10:29:27 PM
The sexual offender registry is rendered ineffective yet again..
 
2003-10-29 10:29:44 PM
I'll wait until this is a Law & Order episode and watch it then.
 
2003-10-29 10:31:01 PM
Killawake: I actually did, but maybe I drank too much to register whatever it is you are referring to.

Sounds like a wonderful hood to live in.
 
2003-10-29 10:32:12 PM
Oh wait, it was his sister, not his daughter. Oops, still pretty farked up though.
 
2003-10-29 10:32:23 PM
Just put the farker in general population with the burglar. All he has to do is let a couple of lifers know.

Voila, one less piss stain on the crotch of society.
 
2003-10-29 10:33:10 PM
I'm surprised that no one has commented on how obvious it is that this case is going to get thrown out in court. The police had no basis for probable cause, and the evidence that gave them probable cause was found by a burglar, hence, illegally and unconstitutionally. The guy's a scumbag, and he definately ought to be punished, but he will probably get a good lawyer and get the case thrown out.
 
2003-10-29 10:33:26 PM
This took place less than 20 minutes from me. Freaky, no? That's Ohio for you.

Two words: "Goodbye Crow."
Two more: "Anderton, wait!"
A bonus for all the Minority Report fans. :)

NightGry My bet is on the 20 year taking justice into his own hands...as is, I'm surprised he didn't when he first found the pictures.
 
2003-10-29 10:40:43 PM
My question is... would he have turned in the pedophile had his sister's picture not been there? Disturbing enough to find children put in that position, but then to see your little sister there. I'm surprised he didn't stay behind and slaughter the bastard.
 
2003-10-29 10:41:05 PM
To his credit, the burglar DID turn himself in.

Should be punished for burgling, but as lightly as the law allows.

NightGyr: you didn't read the article either, the photos had pictures of him molesting the youngsters. Not just taking photos of them - and if you think that multiple photos of nude toddlers being molested is something the judicial system is going to overlook; then I believe you should have paid more attention in your law course.
 
2003-10-29 10:44:02 PM
I think this is way too damned coincidental ... and awfully farkin' convenient for the authorities.

Somebody needs to stay on top of this story. It will be interesting - from a Law and Order perspective - to see if the charges stick.
 
2003-10-29 10:45:36 PM
NightGyr : I may be wrong, but that only applies if the police broke into his apartemnt. I think you can beat the shiat out of someone untill they go confess to the cops, and it perfectly admissable, since the cops didnt do it. I would be the same thing still applies.

if you ask me the both should be shot for the good of humanity. but that is a very good point about the burglar turning himself in and how it was good of him or whatnot, so let him stay around, just make sure every month someone breaks into his house and steals somethin so he knows what its like when shiat just dissapears around your house.
 
2003-10-29 10:47:16 PM
Two wrongs don't make a right....but then, sometimes you have to fight fire with fire....but on the other hand there are five more fingers.

Anyone else think he wouldn't have said anything if his sister wasn't in the box too?

watsun:
I did read the article, but the damning-ness of the evidence is not a reason to overlook the consitutionality of admitting it. I agree that he is a scumbag and deserves punishment, but the pictures never would have been found if the guy's house hadn't been burglarized. This is truly a gray area, because it certainly would have been ok if the cops busted in without a warrant and took the pictures, but what about a private citizen? He comitted a crime to get the evidence, so the scumbag's 4th amendment rights may have been violated. People get off for rapes and murders on evidentary questions all the time.
(I am not a lawyer, except in Mock Trial...and I'm related to one)

How much do you want to bet the thief took stuff figuring the cops wouldn't believe the porn freak.

NightGyr:

Fourth amendment only applies to government actions. If I violate your rights doing my job, the evidence is thrown out, and I get sued. If Joe Public violates your rights gathering evidence, it can usually still be used against you.

2003-10-29 11:00:23 PM
NightGyr: That's a good point. But I don't think matters in this case because the burglar obviously wasn't acting under the auspices of any government agency. Also, because he turned himself in, the police get automatic access to the items he stole--to dust for print, assess whether it was grand theft or petty larcency, etc.

Moreover, I've heard of a similar case, and it didn't get thrown out. Someone swiped a VCR that had a tape in it, it was sold to some other guy. The person who bought it discovered child porn and notified police. The "fruit of a poisoned tree" defense would apply here if it did apply at all, but it doesn't.

Finally, the fact is that this person likely has very little money, and will get a defender that has no inclination to fight hard for his client. Even if he should have the evidence thrown out, the defense attorney is not likely to protest much. And you probably wouldn't act differently if you were his public defender.

Trafficcop:
"usually" -- hence the gray area.
I'm all for severing his balls and applying red-hot instruments of torture to his body, but watch out for technicalities.
 
2003-10-29 11:01:17 PM
iron_city: no... I'm a "porn freak" (and in good company here to be sure), this guy is a pedophile slimeball. An important distinction.
 
2003-10-29 11:02:47 PM
like in a previous posting, they should accidently put the burglar in the same cell with the child molester, and just set back and let nature take it course....
 
2003-10-29 11:08:55 PM
Pics of his 4 year old sister?? Sick f*ck should be hung up by his balls.
