The lexington ky, firefighter who was caught w/ child porn.... your thoughts.

Posted on August 31, 2010 at 3:47pm 5 Comments

My thoughts are this, anyone who looks or down loads child porn is a chester "child molester" in my book. I have 4 kids, a 16 yr old daughter, an11 yr ols boy, a 7 yr old boy and a 5 yr old pumkin girl. From what i read in the artical was that the things downloaded was 12 and under w/ adults, and i got real sick to my stomach reading this news artical, all i could think was my little girl being forced to do things and cry and ask for her daddy to save her.

David, apparently you feel you live in a vacuum and can write what ever you choose on a social website. Bro, a little advise! Many young ladds have made comments on this site about superior officers and have ended up in worse problems because someone has read what was written and passed those comments on to those involved. Bro, if you have issues with your leadership you need to deal with it with them and within your own Department. This is the worse place for you to come in hanging out your dirty laundry. Good luck Bro.
