Why don't these morons understand that being caught in possession like this can literally ruin their life in a heartbeat. Hide that sh*t unless you want to go to jail and then end up sleeping under a highway overpass for the rest of your life, you stupid dumbfarks!!

I'm not crying for the dude that got caught, but WTH was the towing company doing looking at a SD card he left in his car?

That was my Weeners BUT "No further efforts were made by anybody to pay the storage fee and so the vehicle was put up for auction, the arrest report stated."

It doesn't say what the storage fees were but I kind of doubt they were more than the worth of the vehicle. And so if you're going to auction off a vehicle and all of its contents and you come across a memory card just mere curiosity is enough to see what is on it.

Seems like a pretty good scam owning a storage yard. About 20 years ago my car was towed because it was illegally parked. So were about 100 other cars. After a lot of walking and only a few hours in "storage" I paid about $70 to get my car out of the lot. I never bothered to pay the parking ticket which was only a fraction of the cost to get it out of the impound lot. Fark that.

The 100 cars is just a wild-ass guess. If it's accurate the tow company grossed about $7000 that day just from that one spot.

CSB: There was a notorious towing company in Blacksburg called TekTow, and they had deals with all the apartment complexes. Kids would get drunk at their friends apartments, do the responsible thing and take the bus home, and TekTow would rape them with towing feeds.
My one friend lived in a parking lot that had free visitor parking in a small gravel lot off to the side of the main lot. The only rule for that lot was "no parking on the grass", which TekTow took about as literally as they could. If you were at the edge of the gravel and literally a single blade of grass was touching your tire, they'd tow your ass.
There were also rumors that a TekTow driver had been caught towing a car into an illegal spot, taking his photo of the now-illegally-parked car, then towing it off.

Not saying that anyone should ever do this, but while in the impound lot, the cars are under the custody of the towing company, right? If someone was to come along and, say, spray a bunch of the cars with paint balls, then wouldn't the towing company/storage yard be responsible for fixing or repainting all the cars? I mean, not that those places deserve it or anything. They're just performing a public service without any malicious intent at all, right? Right?

No. Every single one of these places has a clause in the agreement to take your car out of impound that basically says "we are not responsible for any damages to your car while it was on this lot". If you want your car back, you sign. If not, they charge you a hundred bucks a day while you complain that it is unfair.

I lost a s15 Silvia conversion Nissan to a towing company that charged $1000 a day storage fees after someone rear ended me and the company towed the car.

Long story short, i lived in an apartment complex that didn't have garage and would strictly tow any broke down vehicle on the property. Didn't have anywhere else to store it, so when the tow truck showed up and asked where to take it, i didn't have anyplace, and they said they would store it at there place as long as i signed a release of liability form.

Turns out they charge $1k/day for that service

I already didn't have $1000 to get it out after the first day and within a couple of weeks i had to fork over the title to the car.

I went to court to contest the charges, but because i signed a release after the accident i agreed to the fees...

Long story short, always read the fine print on that slip they ask you to sign...

Signing that title over to the smiling owner of the towing company was one of the worst days of my life...

What's even more moronic is that numb-nutz admitted the card was his. He could have denied it. The car was towed and in storage, so someone else could have dropped in the car and it would have been impossible for the cops to nail him with a charge unless they could have lifted a good print off of it. And As Honest Bender points out, the idiot should have encrypted the files before dropping them to removable media, which is the only place they should ever be and never on a hard drive.

A guy dumb enough to not bother retrieving a car with kiddie porn in it probably isn't going to have come up with that either. It's almost as if he doesn't even understand that there's anything wrong with it. You'd think most people in that situation would freak and get the car back immediately at any cost, even if they had to rob a liquor store to get the cash.

I used to work for a repo agency and my job as the secretary was to inventory every item that came out of the cars we nabbed. Thank god none of that included porn.

As for the SD, they probably were going to blank it so they could use it, if the property was never claimed. If people didn't come get their crap we sold it to goodwill or kept it.

Correct, the judge told me that had i not signed an agreement and the towing company took it to their lot on their own, then the limit (i believe at the time, was $75/day), but i signed a waiver that was, in effect, a contract agreement for storage

That is not my question, my question is why would you admit to this shiat? Unless it was clearly your face on the video of child porn you shut the fark up and turn this back on the tow company. That vehicle was clearly not in your possession for days if not weeks and any good lawyer would argue that the porn on that disk is not yours

Meh, if you are going to go that far you might as well go the whole nine yards and bring along about a dozen Molotov cocktails. Then make sure to locate your car and burn it and then hit it and a whole bunch of other cars with the Molotov's.

You'd think someone in possession of an object that could get him in serious legal trouble would have the cautious sense enough to keep it locked within the four walls of his domicile.

Of course, given the nature of this illegal object, it was only a matter of time before he was caught anyway.

[osx.wdfiles.com image 128x128]


Most cameras don't support encryption of the photos they take. Based on the fact that it was on an SD card and not a thumb drive, and the collection of "Pretend to be a cop" paraphernalia in the car, I suspect this guy took the photos himself, or was loaned the card by someone who did.

The fact that he made NO effort to recover a car that had kiddie porn in it leads me to suspect he's either:

1. A grade A Moron.
2. It wasn't his card and he didn't know about it.
 
2012-11-09 02:29:09 PM
He claimed the images were sent to him via email and he simply didn't delete them - as in "this stuff isn't mine". My email client does not automatically copy attachments to an SD card. It's all just a big conspiracy at Microsoft to frame him...yeah, that's the ticket.

Apparently it's to take for their own or to hope for porn.

While those are the most likely scenarios, someone innocently trying to return the SD card would do the same thing. "Okay who's card is this? Maybe we can get some info from the photos and return it - holy fark!"

serial_crusher: Happy Hours: The 100 cars is just a wild-ass guess. If it's accurate the tow company grossed about $7000 that day just from that one spot.

CSB: There was a notorious towing company in Blacksburg called TekTow, and they had deals with all the apartment complexes. Kids would get drunk at their friends apartments, do the responsible thing and take the bus home, and TekTow would rape them with towing feeds.
My one friend lived in a parking lot that had free visitor parking in a small gravel lot off to the side of the main lot. The only rule for that lot was "no parking on the grass", which TekTow took about as literally as they could. If you were at the edge of the gravel and literally a single blade of grass was touching your tire, they'd tow your ass.
There were also rumors that a TekTow driver had been caught towing a car into an illegal spot, taking his photo of the now-illegally-parked car, then towing it off.


We have a towing company here that will patrol the apartments it's assigned to and it got into trouble for reaching in open windows or unlocked doors to take the permits and put them under the front seat or in the back seat to hide them from view.
 
2012-11-09 02:32:00 PM

omnimancer28: No. Every single one of these places has a clause in the agreement to take your car out of impound that basically says "we are not responsible for any damages to your car while it was on this lot". If you want your car back, you sign. If not, they charge you a hundred bucks a day while you complain that it is unfair.


You can't contract away liability after the fact like that. Tow companies are responsible if they damage your car, and they get sued for this all the time (though they usually win because it's hard to prove that it wasn't already damaged).

Bhruic: JackieRabbit: Well, there's "I took a picture of my 2 year old in the bath" ... The former kind doesn't bother me, even if technically illegal. The latter kind, on the other hand, is pretty damn evidently wrong.

Taking a pic of your two year old is neither illegal nor child porn.

That depends on where you are, and how the law is worded there. In some locales it could be considered as such.


It is not illegal anywhere. Taking a picture of your naked baby is not in anyway considerer sexual or lewd. Almost all parents have these pictures.

FTFA: "He allegedly admitted, after being read his rights, that he owned the card and received the child porn images by email, but did not delete them."

receiving something by email =/= taking time to save it to a memory card and taking time to remove said card from device

I'm not buying his wide-eyed "Oh someone just emailed them to me! I didn't know what it was!" excuse. You have to actively choose to save something to a memory card, or it wouldn't be on there. Or is there something I'm not understanding about how memory cards work? (wouldn't surprise me)

Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest. That happens all the time here with apartments, and HOAs. There was a big problem at my old condo complex with cars being towed for really questionable reasons, even cars parked in visitor spots that were obviously visitors. Hell yeah, they were getting some kind of kickback.
 
2012-11-09 02:48:41 PM

CeroX: Long story short, i lived in an apartment complex that didn't have garage and would strictly tow any broke down vehicle on the property.


I lived in a similar place. We went on vacation, and flew so we left the car in its regular spot. It got a flat (somehow, mysteriously) shortly after we left, and although it was registered with tags in our space in front of our apartment, they towed it for being broken down. They claim they left a note on the windshield, but since we were out of state, we missed it. We ended up paying towing fees and ten days storage. The bastards. The funny (and of course I mean not funny here) thing was, we got a ride to the airport because we wanted to avoid long term parking fees.

CSB: My ex-GF sued a towing company in Chicago and won. They had just slung chains around the tie-rods, bending them, and thereby making the car incredibly difficult to keep on the road.

I think it was one of those mob-owned towing co's, too. They hired a lawyer who forced it to jury trial, but she hung in there, prepared, and won. The opposing lawyer was sweating badly when he handed over the check. We also made sure the judgement was entered into the record (rather than waiving it for a settlement). Very satisfying.

I think the reaction is more about the rock-hard stupidity of the perpetrator, rather than an endorsement of child porn. Encryption has other, non-porn uses and given the number of bank card and identity thefts, law abiding folks have legitimate reasons to keep their data private.

On an unrelated note, the article mentions that this particular porn was found on an SD card (which is normally used in cameras), rather than a flash drive, which leads me to believe that he is also the one who took the pictures.

depends on the device and were the e-mails were found, on a tablet or phone it could very well save any opened image to the sd card in the cache or swap. You can boot from SD card on many computer that have SD slots as well. I doubt this guy would even know how to select a boot device in the bios but it could happen

signaljammer:

Our hero was an idiot to admit ownership of the SD card. Be nice to the cops, but tell them nothing.

He apparently didn't even think to say "Officer, the car has not been in my possession for over a month. Somebody could have put that there while it was impounded." What a dummy.

But get this: "Tow company employees also found a gun belt, police lights, bullets and badges in the vehicle, according to the arrest report. No further details about these items were provided."

That sounds fishy enough without the kiddy porn: if he was a LEO the article would presumably have said so. But all that stuff together, well...

Didn't he give his mom a list of things to take from vehicle when she got his stuff from it? "There's a bunch of stuff in the spare tire compartment. PLEASE be sure to get all that out."

Hint: if you must view questionable images on your electronic device, promptly delete them after use. And regardless of what you might get busted for, what you say to the cops is "I wish to speak to an attorney." Nothing else, though you might have to keep repeating it till they get the idea.

This is why I say any felony punishable by more than 5 years in prison, or one involving molesting underaged kids, should be punished by death. There are some people Society should not have to put up with, and the planet's got 5 billion too many people on it anyway. Why warehouse such defectives? "Make room, make room!"

The suspect's "I downloaded them off the Internet" excuse will be blown out of the water fairly early in the trial (if it even goes to that), because digital pictures contain a lot of extra information.

Even the cheapest digital camera will stamp the time and date in the EXIF field of each picture file. A slightly more expensive camera will also include the Make, Model and Serial # of the camera. This will make writing the search warrant for his home a lot easier: "Yeah judge, we're looking for a Canon PowerShot 590, whose serial number will match the one in these pictures." If his camera was even more expensive, with a GPS built in, then the pictures will also contain the precise location where the pictures were taken. This guy is completely screwed. (Serves him right, too!)

I agree completely with both points. If this were some other context, I would be down with open discussion of privacy protection and would join the conversation on the plus side. You only have to raise to bar so high to weed out the stupid ones, you know.

Also, I have no doubt he had firm plans to commit an additional crime regardless of his relationship to the photos found. It is possible, though, that he was smart enough to that he was smart enough to transfer the allegedly e-mailed photos to the card but not smart enough to protect it.

SirHolo:

A friend of mine lived in an apartment complex in college. Every day cars that were permitted to park there got towed because the towing company said that their permit was not on the rear view mirror, or it was displayed incorrectly - like hanging on the mirror but at a slight angle. These permits also fell off pretty easily, so residents would tape them to the inside of the windshield just in front of the rear view mirror and they still got towed because of "incorrect" display or some other nonsense...

Anyway, there had been a string of these towings so my buddy and his friends invested in some cheepo security cameras and aimed them at the parking lot. Lo and behold they caught the tow truck drivers shaking the cars to make the permits either fall off or become somewhat crooked, then hook them up and tow them. Over the course of about 3 weeks, they saw something like 25 cars get towed.

Then one of the roommates got his car towed. They watched the video and there was the driver, shaking the shiat out of the car. Unbelievable. They called the impound lot and asked to speak with the highest ranking person there and told him what they had on video. He basically said "eat me," you got nothin' on me. So they went to the cops and the local news station. BUSTED hard.

Tens of thousands of dollars of impound fees got refunded, place went out of business and they lost all their wrecking licenses too.
 
2012-11-09 03:45:23 PM

CeroX: Happy Hours: t doesn't say what the storage fees were but I kind of doubt they were more than the worth of the vehicle.

I lost a s15 Silvia conversion Nissan to a towing company that charged $1000 a day storage fees after someone rear ended me and the company towed the car.

Long story short, i lived in an apartment complex that didn't have garage and would strictly tow any broke down vehicle on the property. Didn't have anywhere else to store it, so when the tow truck showed up and asked where to take it, i didn't have anyplace, and they said they would store it at there place as long as i signed a release of liability form.

Turns out they charge $1k/day for that service

I already didn't have $1000 to get it out after the first day and within a couple of weeks i had to fork over the title to the car.

I went to court to contest the charges, but because i signed a release after the accident i agreed to the fees...

Long story short, always read the fine print on that slip they ask you to sign...

Signing that title over to the smiling owner of the towing company was one of the worst days of my life...


$1000k a DAY?? Holy crap that's ridiculous! Sure you should've read the fine print but those are some seriously excessive fees. I bet they get a lot of cars that way, then turn around and sell them to a broker. Nice little scheme I suppose, but highly unethical.
 
2012-11-09 03:45:50 PM
Tow truck drivers are as light fingered as any crackhead, half of them probably are crackheads. Never, ever leave anything you value in a vehicle, ever. Including your air bags, big coin in selling those to auto repair places and hard to tell they are gone unless you remove the panel and look.

What's even more moronic is that numb-nutz admitted the card was his. He could have denied it. The car was towed and in storage, so someone else could have dropped in the car and it would have been impossible for the cops to nail him with a charge unless they could have lifted a good print off of it. And As Honest Bender points out, the idiot should have encrypted the files before dropping them to removable media, which is the only place they should ever be and never on a hard drive.

Yeah because it takes an EVIL MASTERMIND to figure out how to delete ANY kind of file from an electronic device.

Well, actually maybe it does, at least the "mastermind" part, given all the stories we see about people who get busted for not deleting shiat. Like I say myself, "It's not that I'm so brilliant, it's that we're surrounded by idiots."

Because children are always presumed to be innocent victims. Somebody who got killed might have had it coming, or an adult rape victim might have been asking for it by wearing "revealing" clothing or something.

Wasn't there a hullabaloo not too long ago about two 9 year olds who raped a five year old and then beat him to death? I'm thinking it was in England. It couldn't be in the USA, because OUR snowflakes are SPECIAL.

What he should have done was create a decrypted main volume filled with all kinds of records of charitable activities, like volunteer time, donations, to do lists filled with all of the greatest sorts of good works. Religious pamphlets, etc.

The other stuff could then be on a hidden, encrypted volume.

puppetmaster745: He knew he was going to be arrested and he probably figured they'd get a good fingerprint from the memory card. He was in a corner.


It's been out of his posession for over a month. Anyone could have tampered with it. No, I don't think anyone did, but he's an idiot because any lawyer worth his fur could make that sd card go away, prints or not.

sandi_fish: They can inventory by saying - 1 memory card $20.00, they were only looking at the contents to be curious.


True, but at that point it's their card to do with as they wish.

FTA: "On Wednesday, Sheriff's Office detectives met with Fogarty, according to the arrest report. He allegedly admitted, after being read his rights, that he owned the card and received the child porn images by email, but did not delete them. He was arrested."

Reason #5823 why you never talk to the police. If he had said nothing, it's doubtful that they could have proven the card was his.

I found a flash drive with crappy poetry, the start of a novel, and pics and vids of animals mating. I kept it. Uh, that last one's still legal, right?

Wasilla Hillbilly: Dude is extra creepy with child porn and the LEO equipment. He is very likely a serial rapist or was in the process of becoming one.


Agreed, and I personally am damn glad he was stupid enough to get caught.

Last I heard, 4chan's still legal.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: You'd think someone in possession of an object that could get him in serious legal trouble would have the cautious sense enough to keep it locked within the four walls of his domicile.

Of course, given the nature of this illegal object, it was only a matter of time before he was caught anyway.


Or just say "i want a lawyer" rather than "you got me"

Don't get it...

sethen320: Onkel Buck: Krieghund: I'm not crying for the dude that got caught, but WTH was the towing company doing looking at a SD card he left in his car?

I found a flash drive in the parking lot of my college. I opened it up on my computer to see if it had any evidence on it of who it belonged to. Turned out it belonged to an African foreign exchange student, there was a paper he had written saved on it and lots and lots of interacial porn

You do realize that putting flash drives found on the ground in your pc is awesome way to open yourself up to all kinds of security issues, right?


Yes and thats why I used my work computer, I was hoping that was implied. Our IT guy was the sterotypical smug gamey smelling fat basement dweller, so if it farked anything up I would fabricate a story about how Im bad with computers and went to some weird news compilation site and it started acting weird after that, His ego would be stroked because I "had to ask for help" and he would fix it and wouldnt cost me a thing.

omnimancer28: SurfaceTension: Happy Hours: Seems like a pretty good scam owning a storage yard. About 20 years ago my car was towed because it was illegally parked. So were about 100 other cars. After a lot of walking and only a few hours in "storage" I paid about $70 to get my car out of the lot. I never bothered to pay the parking ticket which was only a fraction of the cost to get it out of the impound lot. Fark that.

Not saying that anyone should ever do this, but while in the impound lot, the cars are under the custody of the towing company, right? If someone was to come along and, say, spray a bunch of the cars with paint balls, then wouldn't the towing company/storage yard be responsible for fixing or repainting all the cars? I mean, not that those places deserve it or anything. They're just performing a public service without any malicious intent at all, right? Right?

No. Every single one of these places has a clause in the agreement to take your car out of impound that basically says "we are not responsible for any damages to your car while it was on this lot". If you want your car back, you sign. If not, they charge you a hundred bucks a day while you complain that it is unfair.

Begoggle: TV's Vinnie: Why don't these morons understand that being caught in possession like this can literally ruin their life in a heartbeat. Hide that sh*t unless you want to go to jail and then end up sleeping under a highway overpass for the rest of your lifeDon't be a pedophile, you stupid dumbfarks!!

FTFY


Agreed. Just was still too tired out from enjoying the election to type down everything or the post could have looked like "don't be a butthole. yeah I like Heineken ain;t nothing like a good Heineken I guess. Gonna go get milk before I keep forgettin. Uh what was I typing oh yeah. Don't be Pedro. yeah. hehe heh heh. farkers'll chuckle at that huh huh."

When did Goodwill start buying stuff?

This... and how is it the chain of custody isn't completely farked when some schlep tow truck driver gets his grubby paws on a thumb drive?

Years ago there was some CompUSA repair geek on one of the geek forums bragging about how he goes through people's drives looking for illegal stuff and would call the cops if he planted found child porn. 

Seems like even a half-assed lawyer could get this tossed easily or do the courts also become pitchforky villagers like the general public does in pedophile cases?

Ghengis_Socrates: The One True TheDavid:

But hey, if it weren't for such stupid perverts what else could Farkers talk about?

How to make stupid criminals perverts smarter?


You probably don't know that I'd like to see the deasth penalty imposed for any felony rating over 5 years in prison and/or involving sexual or bodily harm to a prebuscent child. So I'm all for making stupid criminals & perverts DEAD.

JackieRabbit: : What's even more moronic is that numb-nutz admitted the card was his....

puppetmaster745: He knew he was going to be arrested and he probably figured they'd get a good fingerprint from the memory card. He was in a corner.

With the tow yard employees putting their fingers all over it his prints could have been rubbed off. But rather than talk about it at all he should have said "I want a lawyer" and then shut up entirely.

Maybe we should test IQs at puberty, with the very low-scorers being sterilized. And the stupid and violent or perverted ones castrated, and the recalcitrant taken out and shot.

If we have to suffer their presence, people this stupid should not be allowed to commit any kind of major crime. There ought to be standards, like with electricians and plumbers.

Smart perverts don't get caught with kiddy porn. That's why we only hear about the stupid ones. So you're both right: people should not look at such things at all, but the ones who get caught like this guy are too stupid to live.
