  • Question about some sick stuff

    Since I don't have any contact with my officers right now, and I also want to get some info from people all around....Have to set it up a bit


    Tonight I had a couple of friends come over. We're hanging out and having a good time, and one of my friends and I got into out history with porn. Not a big deal...talking about our teen years and getting caught, stuff like that.

    It was actually a pretty funny topic, till my friend let slip a situation that happened to him that killed the mood completely.

    When he was younger, 12 or 14...possibly 14, he got into downloading from peer-share sites. Then one day, he unknowing downloaded a child porn clip. He only saw it for the few seconds it took to get over his shock and close out that clip.

    It freaked him out in a major way. Here he is, a 13 year old, sick to his stomach, and scared out of his mind that the FBI is coming to get him for that few seconds of some sick crap. He actually burned his hard drive.

    Now he is 22 years old. He is still disturbed by what he saw, angry and mad at himself that he saw it, that he didn't do anything about it, because he was scared of what would happen to him. And angry at the sick SOB that was in the video. And he's still worried if anything can happen to him because of that. And here is the question:

    Can what happened to him 8 years ago effect him today? Can he be charged with anything? If he applies for a job that requires him to take a polygraph, is that going to screw him? He was thinking about becoming a special agent for the IRS or FBI when he graduates with his accounting degree. Will this prohibit him from doing anything like that?

    I feel for the guy. He is disturbed by this. No one should have to see that, and I feel for the LEO's that have to deal with this crap. Answering the phone call and having to take the information is hard enough.....

    Sometime, Pop-ups happen and the girls on there are questionable in age. However, why did he come across it in the first place.

      No, he should be fine. As we know there are 4 levels of culpability: purposely, knowingly, negligently, recklessly. One of these must be proven in court for a crime to have been committed. If no intent, no crime. There wasn't any intent, then from interpretation of the law, there was no crime. CJ agencies are looking for intent, and the "dog returning to the vomit." Hope this helps.
      Most people fail because they trade what they want MOST, for what they want at the MOMENT.

      Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

            I'm curious, what do you mean by fully disclosed?

            That does help, thank you. I was thinking it was something along these lines, but couldn't articulate it.

            And no, it's not me. It really is a friend I say that because I'm already a Dispatcher, so I've taken a polygraph, so if it was really me and I was bothered by this, then they would have caught it and I would already have the answer to my question

              By fully disclosed he means that if your friend is planning on getting a job with an LE agency he needs to be up front about it and tell the BI everything...if he plans on any job that requires a polygraph he needs to be up front and explain to whomever what exactly happened.

                You have to have knowledge of computers and really understand what peer-to-peer downloading is.

                Generally its file sharing across a global network. There is no regulation of it and is completely user driven with the exception of the software that allows the exchange of the data.

                You can do searches for just about anything and then download it from other people's computers. But some people (like in real life) are sick and twisted or think its funny to mess with other people. Say I want to download the latest Transformers movie cause I'm a cheap bastard and don't want to pay $32.99 for it on Blu-Ray.

                So I jump on my to peer-to-peer software after a search on ThePiratebay (you may have heard of them) to find a torrent (basically a small data file that searches for the file on the other users shared files. Then I think I'm downloading Transformers but when I open the file its child porn. Theres no way to tell what is actually on the file except for the extention which tells me what kind of file it is (I.E. JPEG, MOV, MP3) so I know I have a video file but some jack-hole relabeled the kiddie porn as Transformers.

                Make sense?

                Peer-to-peer sharing is the primary source of pirated movies and illegal downloading of MP3s.

                    Which is more of an issue then 10 seconds of so called kiddie porn.
