Pervert Plus P2P Minus Computer Security Equals Justice
Meet Paul Franke, father of an 11 year old boy. Paul was busted by the local cops for distributing kiddie porn over a P2P network like Limewire. When caught, Paul used the tired old excuse that he was just doing research into how easy it was to download.
From MetroWestDaily.Com here:
A Framingham man does not deny downloading child pornography from the Internet, but said he did so only to find out how easy it would be for children to find it online.
Paul Franke, 43, pleaded not guilty yesterday in Framingham District Court to 11 child pornography-related charges and was released without bail. Franke, father of an 11-year-old boy, admitted he downloaded the more than 200 images from a file-sharing network, but not for personal gratification.
State police assigned to the Middlesex district attorney’s office’s cyber protection unit began an investigation in April.
They logged onto a peer-to-peer network, and on that site, they located a file they knew to be a child pornography video, and the investigators tracked down a computer in Framingham that had downloaded the video. They then remotely searched the computer and found at least nine other files consistent with child pornography and obtained a search warrant for Franke’s Alexander Street home.
The state police served the warrant Monday night. They searched the computer files and found at least 200 different child pornography files.
Downloading childporn from a free, open network was a rather stupid thing to do. And it doesn’t matter what his intentions were with the data- it’s illegal, and by keeping it on his computer in his share drive, it made him equally guilty of distributing the porn too.
Whiny liberals in the comments section of this story were of course not angry at all that a man with access to children was peddling child pornography. To them, that was fine. What was outrageous to them is the cops looked in the pervert’s hard drive without a warrant. To those dumbass liberals, let me explain how that works: Cops can go anywhere online that you can too. In this case, Franke was sharing his downloaded files over the internet, as is usual for idiots that use any P2P network. Those directories are browsable by anyone, including cops.
