Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video Games, Comic Books & PC

July 12, 2009 -

Michael Cherry, a 38-year-old Ontario man in court to plead guilty to possessing child pornography, offered a unique explanation for his crime.

The London Free Press reports:

Admitting he possessed child pornography, a London man said yesterday he lived "in a closed box" of friendless fantasy fuelled by video games, his computer and comic books.

 

"I'd work, come home . . . lock myself in my apartment..."

 

After a difficult childhood in foster care, separated from his siblings, his client became a truck driver who lived by himself in squalor and clinical depression, Squire said. "He was in a black hole . . . a strange sort of world his computer created."

I came away with the impression that he was trying to make the excuse that his depression, and not his activities, was what caused it.

However, it still does not excuse him.

Videogames have become the new twinky defense haven't they.

Great! Anything you can NOT yet blame on videogames?

Farting in someones General direction

I think that's it

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

America has just became its own version of the Jerry Springer Show after a bizarre moment in Florida involving a carnival worker.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Yeah.  We all know that the Farting in somebody's General Direction is King Arthur's fault.

Immediate Press Release!

A new organization, People Against Sand, hereby announces the immediate demand for legislation against sand.

People stick their heads in it, you see.

It's the sand's fault.  Not their issues they don't want to face.

Just the sand's fault.

So, with that being said, we hereby bring a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against sand.  It's the corrupting factor that makes everyone ignore... well... everything. 

So it's sand's fault.

And banning it will make all those problems they are sticking their heads in it for go away.

'Nuff said.

  I'm surprised he didn't blame Dungeons & Dragons and heavy metal music too, then he could have covered almost all of the old media bugaboos.

  As others have said, his computer did not create the problem, it just made it easier for him to create the problem. If the computer's responsible then it's that bottle of Jack Daniels that is responsible for my headache, not me.

And being a techie makes you a criminal because you copy data!!(and yet corporate are the ones selling us the devices to copy with to start with)
And liking 2D porn/hentai makes you a disgusting predator!!!(and soem prefer the 2D over the real thing because people suck and are not worth putting up with...)

 


I am a criminal because I purchase media,I am a criminal because I use media, I am a criminal because I chose to own media..We shall remain criminals until Corporate stay's outside our bedrooms..

It's not just the porn, it's CHILD porn.  You know, as in the actors are children.  Which is illegal almost everywhere.  If he was watching Debbie Does Dallas, nobody would have a problem.  He was watching Debby's 12th Birthday Shower, which may not make him a predator per se, but does bring up an issue of psychosis that needs to be dealt with.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Fun fact: in the UK, it's illegal to know how to recover data from a broken hard drive.

The thinking is, that "...but as soon as I found out what it was, I deleted it" is an excuse that will fly in court if you're accused of downloading child porn. Unless, of course, you know how to un-delete it.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

"Fun fact: in the UK, it's illegal to know how to recover data from a broken hard drive."

Rubbish!  How would anyone ever be prosecuted for it.  The crime has to be in putting the knowledge to use in some way.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Because "Unless, of course, you know how to un-delete it.".

You don't have to have been seen to recover said data, just need to have the means to do so.

If copying is a crime, the Ctrl+C key combination wouldn't exist :D

Kakashi Hatake would be in deep trouble with lawsuits, if it weren't for his deadliness.

After a difficult childhood in foster care, separated from his siblings, his client became a truck driver who lived by himself in squalor and clinical depression, Squire said. "He was in a black hole . . . a strange sort of world his computer created."

Sooooooo it was the fault of the computer AFTER his childhood that his childhood sucked? What magical time-space altering computer was he using?

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Seems like he'd get more sympathy and a lessened case if they could prove that his troubled childhood and his depersonalizing work as a truck-driver was the source of his provlems. Hell, if they could try some sort of insanity plea, it might work more than blaming the games, the computer, and the various things he chose to buy and use to seal himself away from humanity.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Hey, sealing oneself away from humanity does not make a person seek out child pornography.  Being a sick fuck does that.  Why does everyone always blame the introverted personality for this crap.  Leave us introverts out of it.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

His computer didn't create the hole, he did, the computer didn't force him to become a recluse, he chose to, the computer didn't force him to download child porn, he chose to.

Like any tool, a computer contains the potential for abuse, a screwdriver can become a murder weapon, but that is not the fault of the screwdriver, it is the fault of the person using it, there's even been a case of someone killed with a paintbrush, need to track that one down.

Sorry to hear he had various syndromes as a child, I only had one, it's called 'locking up child molesting bastards syndrome', but I've never been able to shake it...

 

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

I agree, there's plenty that people can do to improve their lives and being addicted to your computer is just a rejection of trying to do anything about it.

But I hasten to point out he didn't actually molest any children.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

True, an over-generalization on my part, was kind of annoyed at the time, if someone has a problem like paedophilia, I can, to a certain degree, feel an aspect of sympathy for them with the way society treats them, but feel they definately need to get help, I cannot support what they desire.

However, when someone tries to blame that problem on external influences as though you can catch it from looking at too much GTA or the like, that just gets my goat, it's Thompsonism at it's greatest.

Anyway, as I said, you are correct, he is not a molestor, but he should still be seeking help rather than allocating blame ;)

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Three words describe this: Very wierd article

Watching JT on GP is just like watching an episode of Jerry springer only as funny as the fights

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

Excuses excuses... shut the fuck up.


Yes I have a WIP. Just wait and see.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

It aint my fault I'm a sicko that watches kiddie porn its becuase of the video games. sheesh hope they lock this guy up in state prison for a long time. I'm sure he won't have to worry about being alone in there.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

If he lasts. I heard the other prisoners don't treat such people very well.

Re: Defendant Links Kiddie Porn Collection to Use of Video ...

 I've heard inmates especially hate pedophiles, but I don't think he touched any kids.  He just had kiddie porn. 

 

Meh, the inmates might not see much of a difference.

Goth_SkunkAnd just to be clear, that remark is firmly tongue-in-cheek, while also echoing statements made by those critical of GamerGate.06/30/2015 - 4:43pm
Goth_SkunkA fair point Andrew, and you are a very reasonable feminist. Though I would suggest that if you don't wish to be associated with the toxic elements present in feminism, I recommend disassociating yourself from them. Maybe call yourself something else? :^)06/30/2015 - 4:42pm
Andrew EisenGoth - By the by, you know how GamerGate doesn't like being painted with a broad brush? Well, I hate to speak for anyone but myself but I'm pretty confident in saying we feminists don't care for it much either.06/30/2015 - 4:10pm
Andrew EisenWell of course. Being a feminist doesn't mean rape can never be depicted in fiction.06/30/2015 - 4:03pm
InfophileIn fiction, it depends on the context. It's very easy to get "wrong," but there are cases where feminists have approved of how it's been shown (eg. the scene with Honor Harrington in the new compilation comic)06/30/2015 - 4:02pm
Andrew EisenThat would be an interesting alternate film though. Ray became a Ghostbuster to get rid of the spooks that had been sexually assaulting him.06/30/2015 - 4:00pm
Andrew EisenHe's not powerless against ghosts. That's very firmly established by that point in the movie.06/30/2015 - 3:57pm
Andrew EisenSo, if in the new movie, McCarthy or one of the other Ghostbusters has a dream where a pretty ghost goes down on her, I don't predict outrage (other than from those silly random no-name numbnuts on Twitter).06/30/2015 - 3:56pm
Goth_SkunkDream or not, it's still a scene that depicts a victim powerless to stop his attacker from engaging in an act of sex upon him. Even if he enjoys himself, it's technically rape. Hypothetically, he could feel traumatized afterwards.06/30/2015 - 3:55pm
Andrew EisenWell, he could always, you know, grab a proton pack and bust that rapey ghost! But again, it's still pretty clearly a dream.06/30/2015 - 3:53pm
ZippyDSMleeSo what dose GG stand for if its not been taken over my bigots??06/30/2015 - 3:52pm
Goth_SkunkI am assuming he's powerless to stop it, yes. I have no reason to believe a ghost would find itself in any way obligated to obey laws of corporeal beings. And it's not just about consent, but also about the means to stop the person engaging the sex.06/30/2015 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenRape in real life? Absolutely (though "tizzy" isn't the right word). In fiction? Depends on how it's used.06/30/2015 - 3:50pm
Infophile"...it's rape. And that tends to send feminists into a tizzy." You say that as if rape isn't something to get into a tizzy about.06/30/2015 - 3:48pm
Andrew EisenBesides, it's pretty clearly a dream. Ray and the ghost are in some unknown bedroom. Then it cuts to Ray and the other guys in the firehouse beds with Ray rolling over in his sleep and falling off the bed. Looks like Egon is having a weird dream too.06/30/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenYou're assuming he's powerless to stop it. Maybe saying "no" or something would have stopped the ghost. Anyway, so, in your opinion, sex (oral or otherwise) is rape unless there's explicit consent?06/30/2015 - 3:44pm
Goth_SkunkBut, to be completely fair, that fact never dawned on me until 15 minutes ago.06/30/2015 - 3:43pm
Goth_SkunkAbsolutely. He doesn't consent, and is powerless to stop it because his attacker isn't corporeal. The fact that he's enjoying himself does not change the fact that it's technically rape.06/30/2015 - 3:42pm
Andrew EisenAlways came off as a dream to me.06/30/2015 - 3:40pm
Andrew EisenThat scene really reads to you like Stantz was being raped?06/30/2015 - 3:39pm
