PIC: Oakland County SD (PD)

I always thought the hipster look was intentionally childish. Seeing a 63 year-old alleged pedophile dressed like a third-rate Urban Outfitters model is sending me into some kind of horrifying “The Child is The Father of The Man” kind of wormhole. Dude looks like a beef jerky Michael Cera.

Meet Bruce Howard Fonda.

Chicago Rep Who Sponsored Bills Against Child Porn Busted For Child Porn

cb3d88de-769e-4455-8fc9-b9981583fa2aAccording to the Chicago Tribune, Farnham had child pornography on his state office computer.

Via Jonathan Turley:

Former Illinois State Rep. Keith Farnham, 66, was the co-sponsor of two bills to increase the punishment for child pornography may soon regret the effort. He has been charged with child pornography crimes related to hundreds of images and videos on his personal and state-owned computers as well as graphic online chats. In one such chat, he allegedly wrote that “12 is about as old as i can handle . . . i love them at 6 7 8.” In another chat, he allegedly bragged about sexually molesting a 6-year-old girl.

Pentagon Workers Found To Have Downloaded Child Pornography

PentagonEwen MacAskill writes for the Guardian:

Dozens of Pentagon staff and contractors with high-level security clearance have been found by US federal investigators to have downloaded child pornography.

A spokesman said the defence department takes such matters seriously but would not comment on specific cases.

The Pentagon concern is not just that crimes have been committed, though that alone would be grounds for dismissal, but that it makes those involved security risks.

One of those charged was a contractor who had security clearance at the National Security Agency, which eavesdrops on communications worldwide. He fled the US and is thought to be hiding in Libya.

Details about links between the Pentagon and child pornography were disclosed yesterday in the Boston Globe.

The paper quotes an internal report from the defence criminal investigative service in 2009 which says that though the number found to be involved is small compared with the number employed by the defence department and related organisations, it leaves those involved “at risk of blackmail, bribery, and threats, especially since these individuals typically have access to military installations”.
