@An tUasal Airgead. No you did not indicate approval for what he did but your statement of "Before the villagers start lighting the torches" made it sound as if we should respect this sickos rights. Even if he winds up being innocent by law. He is not innocent in my eyes. I will continue to warn anyone I know with children to stay away from him and his home as many of my neighbors were not aware of this incident. I may not be able to change the law but I can help protect my neighborhood. Sorry I will never take the chance of ANYONE hurting a child. So the torch it lit...

Look, you are obviously angry and looking to vent, but "adding a twist" and interpreting statements with "made it sounds like" will not help. Nor will I continue to respond to efforts to argue, just for the sake of arguing. People were noting a person's address, which is common in news stories when a person is arrested. I pointed out that it appears as if he may have been incorrectly arrested, due to a recent (same day) Court of Appeals decision. What you refuse to believe, does not change what I posted, which was this is NOW not a crime in NY, end of story. I understand your frustration, I'm a father. But posting comments on a website will resolve NOTHING when it comes to this situation. Channel your anger and energy where it will do the most good for your children and other families - contact your elected officials and demand changes to the law. If the law is not changed, next time it happens you won't even know who these degenerates are, never mind have any expectation that they will ever face any court imposed justice. Good luck!

Could some explain to me why our esteemed elected officials and legal system felt the need to repeal this law?If someone is watching this sick crap then they are supporting a market where the sexual exploitation and endangerment of children is of no consequence and in essence are Promoting the continuation of these acts by supporting the supply and demand principal. .. The perverted right to view this garbage at the expense of destroying these children is unforgiveable . If by any chance this pervert /sexual deviant is released and not charged becaseu the law has been repealed/changed then the neighbors of the peole who voted/ruled in support of the repeal should place a big neon orange arrow on their lawns saying THIS PERSON SUPPORTS THE SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN>

It was the NY State Court Of Appeals interpretation of the law as it was written. - - - "Rather, some affirmative act is required (printing, saving, downloading, etc.) to show that defendant in fact exercised dominion and control over the images that were on his screen," wrote Senior Judge Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick in a majority opinion of the six-judge ruling, according to MSNBC. "To hold otherwise, would extend the reach of (state law) to conduct — viewing — that our Legislature has not deemed criminal." Judge Victoria A. Graffeo simplified things, writing, "The purposeful viewing of child pornography on the internet is now legal in New York." Republican State Senator Martin Golden and Democrat Assemblyman Joseph Lentol said they will introduce legislation that will make illegal "knowingly accessing" child pornography. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/10/child-pornography-legal-new-york-porn-possession-james-kent_n_1505916.html - - - People need to tell their elected NYS politicians how they want them to vote on this issue.

If they NEED to be told that the exploitation and sexual abuse of children is something they should ALL be vehemently opposed to, in ANY way shape or form ,then should be kicked to the curb with sharply spiked boots!
