How Child Pornographers Got Themselves Caught

We should be thankful that some of the sickest people on the planet aren't savvy with their tech devices, otherwise they wouldn't be behind bars where they belong.

More often these days do we learn about used computers and cell phones that get sent away only for others to discover photographic evidence of illegal acts.

One comes from Michael Comte, a 32-year-old Tacoma resident, who allegedly donated the cell phone he used to photograph and video the molestation of a 3-year-old girl he was babysitting for a friend.

Comte donated the phone to Goodwill, where one of the foundation's workers took the phone for personal use. The Goodwill worker found the material on the phone and contacted the police. Comte pleaded not guilty and had bail set at $500,000. Read more at KiroTV.

Other instances have child pornographers sending in computers for repair. One of the latest comes from Windsor, Ontario, where a computer repair shop received a machine from 37-year-old Bryan Gregory Abbott, who allegedly had enough child pornography on it for the police to seize the PC.

Perhaps the dumbest criminal was 46-year-old Daniel J. Wagner of Sheboygan, WI who took his computer into Best Buy for repair because it has viruses and wasn't working properly. The technician assigned to fixing his machine found that this desktop wallpaper was child pornographic in nature, so he attempted to change it to something else because he was working in a public area of the store. When browsing through the My Pictures folder, the technician found 67 images of child pornography depicting children as young as 3 years old. The police arrested Wagner when he arrived back at the store to pick up his computer. Read more at Sheboyganpress.

    The problem with these disgusting people is they are so messed up in the head they see their disease as something simple like a feet fetish. They have no concept that it harms everyone thats associated with it, including themselves.

    This is on par with the common problem of internet porn addiction. There is a supply of the disgusting material and forums/groups of people that also view it, giving the offenders a sense of belonging and acceptance with their twisted, disgusting behavior. They can't separate how regular porn is ok, but their "fetish" isn't. The worse part is, a good portion of the children that are molested grow up to do some sort of molestation themselves...

    OMG man, how the heck do you find that appealing. You are sick and need immediate help. Let's see... 1) go to jail and 2) get a girl friend (18+).

    keep them out of jail i dont want to pay for it! Sex offenders are unfixable.

    two other, more reasonable options include:
    1) chop balls off.
    2) capital punishment

    Each of these solutions solve the problem... just have to catch them to impliment.

    I used to work for Geek Squad a few years ago. (I know, I know..they aren't the best technicians but that was a long time ago) We weren't supposed to invade privacy, but one of my buddies did anyways and even risked losing his job just to put this sicko behind bars.

    I'm not exactly sure what child porn is. By that, I mean I've never seen it and I don't want to. I don't want to imagine Youporn with 5 year old kids... that would gross me out too much. I'd probably kill myself!
