Why Will This FBI Agent Not Be Prosecuted for Child Porn?

We don’t know why the Department of Justice declined to prosecute the supervisory FBI analyst who “knowingly possessed child pornography” in violation of federal law. We don’t know how many images he or she possessed. We don’t know the identity of the child or children who were exploited for the sexual gratification of this FBI supervisory analyst. We don’t know what vile sex acts the child was coerced into performing. We don’t know whether the supervisory FBI analyst supervised cases involving child pornography or whether he or she steered law enforcement away from criminals with similar tendencies. Full Article

When I was incarcerated, around 2008-2011, I forget the exact year, but an article was spreading around the prison like wildfire. It said some inspections of the pentagon computers revealed that a considerable percentage of them contained various degrees of CP. We all waited in anticipation for some of the big fish to fall and get a taste of their own medicine, but weeks and months went byand you heard less and less about it until it just vanished into thin air. I have friends that are still there to this day serving unimaginable sentences for CP; seventeen and twenty… Read more »

@Eric

I know the story of which you refer to here. Don’t be so sure things didn’t happen. If military, the people in the DoD were taken care of according to the UCMJ. If civilian, things were taken care of most likely as well. To what degree or satisfaction? Who knows. They wouldn’t pub that info necessarily since DoD keeps those things in house more often than not. A citizen/reporter would need to be following up on it to see where it went.

They most likely got fired and forfeited their pensions in exchange for not being prosecuted. Of course these things are swept under the rug without public disclosure. Society quickly moves on and forgets when it quickly fades from the news cycles.

Congress is full of child molesters that were caught also, i.e, Dennis Hastert and

@Facts should matter

And also if I may add, Anthony Weiner who got 2 years for sexting a teenager. Any regular Joe would’ve gotten 10 years for that! This double standard really sickens me…

@Facts should matter:
“(this guy got off easy)”

I’m not sure you meant the double-entendre, but I love it!

Since FBI, U.S. Atty.’s Office and/or DOJ are not pursuing an indictment, then I believe it incumbant upon these fine public serviants to immediately provide information of the offense to local/State law enforcement agencies. After all, the FBI and the U.S. DOJ (those brave and courageous souls all) now hold particularized knowledge of a STATE CRIME being committed. I would think that sworn federal law enforcement agents hold a special duty – an over-riding and compelling moral obligation – to immediately report such despicable and vile crimes to their respective local and/or state authorities – if it helps to save… Read more »

This story expresses my exact feelings and they should be prosecuted as strongly as the “offender” who was entrapped by them.

…and that government of cops, by the cops, for the cops…

Why no prosecutions?
The reason is simple. Any lawyer who’d submit discovery requests concerning the modus used to surveil the use of the machine would soon learn the specific software used to do so is owned by private entities and not the government.

Most of the regular people who’ve gotten their charges dropped for CP cases have done so by insisting on that discovery through their lawyers. The cases are dropped precisely because these firms do not want their patented software and underhanded techniques to become understood by the general public, producers of websites nor their potential competitors.

FBI people looking at child porn or teenaged porn. I am sure that has happened but I’m sure many of some are brushed under the rug. Well Tim gave the theory its all about computers but I beg to differ. Why is a thousand dollar question and so cynical and self centered. Law enforcements are above the law of their good book. They don’t even use the right book with their guidance. Nothing wrong with technology but anything can be used for good or bad. Even a gun or a sling shot. This increase in technology is a bit much… Read more »

The USA no longer has law enforcement. They are State sponsored terrorists

The answer to the question of why this person won’t be prosecuted is pretty well summed up in this paragraph from the press release: ***** The OIG obtained and forensically examined the SIA’s personal and FBI issued devices. Our examination identified pornographic images on the SIA’s personal devices, and the OIG took several steps to determine whether the images represented child pornography, including providing such images to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. None of the images were determined to be evidence of child pornography. No pornographic material, or evidence pertinent to the investigation, was identified on the… Read more »

People in power aren’t subject to our criminal laws. Kellyanne Conway just posted a seminude photo of her 16 year-old daughter on the internet. Don’t look for Kellyanne’s photo on the registry anytime soon.

Amen !! Detroit

Did she forward the photo to Trump? 🤣

I haven’t seen the actual photo. What makes it criminal is that it is described as a bathroom shot taken and posted without the 16 year-old’s permission.
