    Child porn users are everywhere, in all stratas of society. The likelihood of even having some here on MacRumors is high.

    I'm not sure how the relevance of them being an ex-TSA employee makes this case so unique or noteworthy.

    I wouldn't want anyone with this kind of disgusting predisposition groping my junk in an airport...

    Just give it a few minutes, someone will make it relevant, bad talk the TSA, this thread will turn into another TSA bashing thread and then we can combine it with the others. I'm getting the hang of PRSI.

    Edit: Didn't even take a few minutes.

    Um, I don't want anyone groping my junk, in an airport or otherwise

    Agreed, on all counts
    We have them in the government, in the churches, everywhere
    This shouldn't be much of a surprise

    yea but if you go through an airport terminal, there's a decent chance its gonna happen. I'd rather it be by someone who won't enjoy it...

    Well, it was child porn, and I am probably a little too old for him to enjoy it

    Besides, he won't be the one doing it, and you have no way of knowing about the one that does
    There is no reason to believe the TSA has a higher rate of pedophiles than any other group

    The modern-day version of bread and circuses.

    Better to focus on how you are today, vs 10 years ago, and ignore the "distractions" provided by our "shepherds".

    This is exactly what I assumed when I opened the thread.

    I'm glad to see that's not the case, for the most part.

    I'm sure there's a doctor somewhere out there who's also a child molester

    Don't go to the doctor anymore

    I'm much more concerned with pedophiles who are highly respected in a community and given considerable opportunity for trusted private interaction with children. Priests, perhaps...or athletic coaches, or any of many other possibilities. There's just much less potential for very bad things to happen in the setting of a TSA screening.

    But those that are are given power to have their hands all over people, including children.

    Actually he died and had pictures of his patients buried in his wall.

    Why? He's already dead.

    Burn them, or get one of those Shred At Your Door services, to come in and empty the room.

    I am not sure I understand your point

    Pedophiles are abhorrent in any job situation or walk of life
    The fact they are present at the TSA is no surprise
    They are in churches, child care, youth organizations, et. al.

    When they are identified, they are removed, whether the TSA or elsewhere

    The TSA has a job to do
    Whether they have overextended their limits as an organization is up for debate
    But that debate is separate from the fact pedophiles might be employed there

    Ummm...you did read in that article at the end that it was not an actual image, right??? The article called itself wrong. Carry on.

    Also, I'm sure there are doctors, too, who get off on child porn or on groping dudes' junk or girls' chests. Yet, people are OK with that.

    I don't like witch hunts, the TSA has problems that I'll agree are real and require a solution and those should be addressed. A small crop of retarded chi mos within any field is not the problem with that field the child molestation issue is an issue all its own. I don't particularly like religion but it is not because there are child molesting priests or ministers and deacons, I disagree with its philosophical points. I don't like the way much law enforcement operates, but when cop gets busted for spousal abuse I don't put all cops on trial as wife beaters. Any sort of abuse is not so much an abuse of authority but an issue that stands alone to be addressed.
