    It makes my day when I hear about pedo's getting caught. Take them outside and shoot them.
  5. @Skidmarksdeluxe, and being a murderer is so much better because? They shall all have their fundamental rights to a fair trial - thiefs, pedos, murders, whatever and nomatter what.
    People that think otherwise, that themselves are above the law and that two criminal acts can make up for one, are just as bad as any wrongdoer.
    You know, judges sometimes makes mistakes. It has happened, and it certainly will again. Still, a fair trial is our very best tool and filter to expose the full truth and bring important facts to the table that we as a society can learn from. By ignoring a suspect fundamentally rights, thinking you already have all the facts and can just use your gun and execute people, you are harming the society even if you think otherwise.

    This is true. The fact that it was transferred by Kik, and that he was only in his twenties, the likelihood of the man in question exchanging nudes or whatever with a teenager of 16-17 is much more probably than actual foul play.

    Sure, by definition of the law - it's illegal and classified as child pornography.. but not everything is black and white, and I do not agree with the outcome of the situation.
