    Bernie Ward pleads Guilty to Kiddie Porn - "Just Doing Research"

    Bernie Ward, the most prominent liberal voice on San Fancisco Bay Area talk radio for more than two decades, admitted Thursday to distribution of child pornography by e-mail in a plea deal that will send him to federal prison for at least five years.


    http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...&feed=rss.news

    http://iteamblog.abc7news.com/2008/0...-ward-ple.html

    Ward, 57, a former Roman Catholic priest, was a fixture on KGO-AM 810 for three hours every weeknight, known in recent years for his fervent denunciations of President Bush and the war in Iraq during his news talk show. He also hosted "God Talk," a Sunday morning program on religion, and was a prolific fundraiser for the station's charity drives.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Ahhhhhh, of only Bernie had lived in Medieval Europe, then could have simply "purchased" some induglences for his dalliances from "The Church".... Those were the Days ! ! !

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    At a 30-minute hearing in federal court in San Francisco, Ward admitted he was guilty of a single charge of distributing child pornography, saying it involved "exchanging an image of a minor engaged in sexually explicit activity" in December 2004. The plea agreement he signed, quoted in court, contained an admission that he had sent between 15 and 150 pornographic images via e-mail.

    Ward initially pleaded not guilty and said he had downloaded a few pornographic images over several weeks as research for a book on hypocrisy among Americans who preach morality in public. But he was confronted by a federal law that flatly prohibits possessing, receiving or distributing child pornography - regardless of intent - and requires at least five years in prison for each conviction.

    His hopes of maintaining a defense based on a constitutional right to research taboo subjects appeared to be weakened further when police in Oakdale (Stanislaus County) released transcripts in February of a series of online sex chats between Ward and a dominatrix in December 2004 and January 2005.

    The transcripts quote Ward as fantasizing about naked children with no apparent reference to any subject he was researching. Police said he had sent photos to the woman that showed children engaged in sexual activity.

    This is your one-stop link to the entire Bernie Ward story:

    http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?sec...eam&id=6131414

    He wasn't doing research.

    I listen to KGO radio and used to listen to Bernie do "Godtalk" on Sundays for a long time.

    This is a guy who revelled in the fall of Rev. James Baker and other televangelists.

    Pretty much what I was thinking. Why do they love kids so much? "Suffer the children, come unto me" is not what Christ meant when he said that! Guess it's taken the wrong way.

    "in the day" many neighborhoods had their resident dirty old man. Good thing was, we usually knew who the creep was and kids were warned to stay away. The internet has allowed an unprecedented access to children combined with anonymity (sp?) that seems to allow this perversion to flourish in all levels of society.

    The great majority of pictures and videos involving minors are nothing more that evidence of an act of child abuse any anyone getting their kicks out of that is disguting and needs to be dealt with harshly. That R Kelly can get his case continued over a period of 6 years while he maintains both his freedom and career is yet another perversion...this one a perversion of justice.

    In my opinion children who are posting suggestive (and beyond suggestive) photos and videos of themselves and others on the social networking sites are unwittingly contributing to the propagation of the underground child porn industry and the images they are posting will live forever out there in the ether. I wonder how cool these kids would feel if they could see the csick asses who are actually viewing the stuff they post. I think they would be humiliated, but at their age, I think they have the hormonal drive, the social pressure and none of the common sense to figure out the consequences of their actions.

    My rant, and you're welcome to it.

    Cool idea I just heard today....police stations around the country are giving kids the options of adding the local police as their #1friend. One girl reported that random requests to be added as a friend to her page had dropped to zero after adding her local police to her friend list.
    My space is still going a piss poor job of keeping creeps away, so anything that helps protect these kids from predators (and themselves) is a step forward. Tell the kiddies!

    Myspace has announced that the system will now flag any accounts where the user changes his/her age....like these creeps won't figure out to just open a new account and list their age as minors!

    I know that myspace is doing a poor job of getting pedophiles off their site because I was recently checking out my nephews page and thought i'd check something else out. I was shocked to find out that a local man's myspace page was still on. Mind you, this guy still has several years to serve in prison on child porn charges and it's unlikely that he's actually using the page, but he's still there.

Mind you, this guy still has several years to serve in prison on child porn charges and it's unlikely that he's actually using the page, but he's still there.

    In February 2007, a U.S. District Judge in Texas dismissed a case when a family sued MySpace for negligence, fraud, and misrepresentation; a girl in the family had been sexually assaulted by a man she met through MySpace, after she had misrepresented her age as 18 when she was 13. Regarding his dismissal of the case, U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks wrote: "If anyone had a duty to protect Julie Doe, it was her parents, not MySpace."[74]


    Myspace had been a crappy guest-book project started by 2 guys who had no idea it would spread so far. They don't charge for their services and I wonder if they still get any revenues because of all the bandwidth waste it gets from people who overload their profiles with retarded css and thousands of pictures.

    In July 2007, the company found and deleted 29,000 profiles belonging to registered sex offenders.[75] Anti-pedophile organization Perverted Justice has praised MySpace for its efforts to combat pedophiles using their service.[76]

    They do everything they could.
