there was a fire next door jckdoors, so the fire fighters entered the suspect's home to make sure the fire had not spread and apparently found the time to rifle thru his posessions looking for porn, drugs and lunch money.

I've always believed that wrestlers are latently gay and coaches and officials are secretly evil perverters of little boys.

The pictures were laying out in plain view from where he's been looking at them and thumping his monkey, until in white-eyed rollback ecstasy, he shivered his timbers. probably found a few groom-stained towels laying about too.

This creep's child porn was spread out on a table in full view. No one was rifling around his possessions.

Ronjaboy: Please stop eating the paint chips you twit. You'd be crying to your mom if you even stepped onto a wrestling mat.

He was choking his chicken, rubbing his rhubarb after odering a small popcorn with lotsa lotsa butter in a drinking cup, by golly. He didn't even notice the fire at all.

Call me crazy but I don't worry all that much about the 4th amendment rights of guys who like kiddie porn.

Hats off to this Fire Marshall who made it his or her business to report child pornography. This problem is too big to rely exclusively upon law enforcement. We need to be the million eyes and ears who report suspicious behavior to law enforcement.
