The defense attorney explaining it to former tank commander, do you want to take a plea deal for a prison sentence or do you want a one day trial where your own words will be played and be found guilty and sentenced to a longer prison term because of lack of remorse and failing to take responsibility?

That was very shrewd of him to cloak his identity by leaving his real name on the voice mail.

Nobody would ever believe anyone could be that stupid.

So, you took a situation where they have to prove the allegations, and decided adding on one where you provided them an airtight case for free was better?  That was the big plan?  How did you survive even with the big metal shell around you?

I enjoy the act for a few minutes, but I don't see the long-term appeal of Megatronic.  If they're on a Christmas Special, I'll watch it, but I'm not buying an album or seeing their Vegas show.

In July 2020, Hunter Young, a special agent with Barksdale's AFOSI detachment, interviewed Prime's partner, Christy Stevenson, about some government equipment that had recently been lost. During the interview, Stevenson told the agent that she had previously "noticed several nude photos and videos of her toddler-aged daughter on Prime's phone."

Stevenson happened to have Prime's phone, and turned it over to Young.


Yeah, she just happened to have his phone.

What these "alpha dog" types seem to fail to realize is that society only lets them act that way on a tight leash and in controlled circumstances. They're not untamed wolves, they're workhounds, and workhounds that bite people they're not told to bite get put down.

This particular genius however is going to have to face the fact that not only did he do a bad thing, he did it in a really dumb way that undercuts literally everything his life ever stood for.

Great, yesterday it was Rhodes and his platoon, now it's this tank commander.
Why are the feds going after our military heroes?
What message does it send tour our children?
Do we want them all to be social workers?

So, the child porn investigation started in summer 2020, but the article can't be bothered to say where it stands. Complete garbage writing.

At the same time, why be mad at the investigator? A woman tells an investigator that she suspects her boyfriend of deeply inappropriate behavior with her child, the investigator has to look into it. Even if she were lying it wouldn't be the investigators fault for having to, you know, investigate.

Right, he didn't conduct the full investigation, but he initiated it. Still not clear on why this raging idiot's ire is focused on that guy.

I love reading tfa and waiting to see who got past "Tank Commander" to "ER Nurse"

Because that seems sort of an odd career leap.

Fascinating how his ex wife AND his dad basically said "nope. not saying anything. don't rock the boat"

Man's got a bad temper, perhaps a little pervy? Let's let him care for the bedridden!

and then she just hung around until someone came to ask her about some other trouble he's in
it's possible

maybe we'll get to find out what an actual jury decides

Isn't there more than nude pictures to meet the definition of child porn? The article didn't say exactly but there must be a little more to the story than what I read. Having just the one child's pictures and not any other childrens' pictures is one odd thing.

There's the element of access for there only being the one toddler's pictures. And the definition tends to be a bit fluid by jurisdiction, that "you'll know the difference when you see it" is kinda the default. There are a lot of baby bum pics taken in the tub that don't qualify, but flip the kid over and drain the water might set off some red flags... Obviously no idea what the pics were, but at least a few investigators in at least to organizations felt the pics crossed the line enough to have charged this guy.

I wouldn't  want to have to answer for that pic....as funny as it was.

Given his reaction, it's possible he has other anger issues and she decided this was an easy out from an abusive situation.

Hah it does seem a bit suspect.  Could be the wife wants an easy way to take over his military pension.   Might even had one of her male 'friends' use her soon to be ex husbands phone to make the threatening calls.    Would make a good Hallmark movie
