    The reason Immigration is involved is because this person was in the US on a Student/Work Visa & now his visa is in Jeopardy. I know this because I use to work with him. As a worker he's a good person but everyone has their demons, some are just worse than others. (I IN NO WAY CONDONE ANY PART OF HIS ACTIONS) Various agency's participate in "joint" operations when there is a need for them. TPD isn't the only ones kicking in doors looking for bad guys.

    Rueful Stranger, The Immigration & Customs Enforcement has resources that can be useful in investigating these cases, so does the U.S. Postal Inspection service which is also part of the task force. These agencies have tools that can be utilized to increase the capabilities of the task force.

    My prior post about chopping off the guys third leg was just wishful thinking! ( He would be deserving though)! I know, as anonymous mentioned that criminals still have rights too. @anon & Kim..the chemical part cures them is a myth, Tom is correct. @Kim the rest of your post was dead on right! This sickness is a progressive pattern that escalates over time.

    CaptainIgnorant-actually, if you had done any research, you would know that chemical castration doesn't always work, there have been cases of child molesters re-offending even AFTER being snipped. The ONLY way to make sure they don’t do it again, is to kill them or lock them up for life. Either is fine with me, we are idiots as society to let these scumbags out to do it again.

    Why is Immigration involved in this task force? Can't they just call them up if an immigration issue comes up? Sounds like a wasteful excess of resources.

    Did he think it was okay to view these pictures because he lives on View Lane? Dang, I should have been a defense attorney.

    @anon...I agree with the chemical part. The rest however not so much. It is illegal to have or download nude pictures of children. After a while the pictures are no longer going to satisfy this person and that is when he will start making a plan to have contact with a live child. At which point you better hope it's not your neighbor , friend or relative. If you still think it's no big deal about this person having these pictures what IF they were pictures of your kids?what if He was your neighbor? I for one am glad he was caught now rather than later.

    Anon, would you seriously be thinking this person was not much of a threat if it was your child he had pictures of.

    @anon: Quiet you, with your capacity for rational thought! That's not allowed here! Don't you know the comments section is just an outlet for ignorant, angry people who have (rather unfortunately) gained access to the internet?
