The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

ALCU Pres Sentenced for Child Porn

Stop the ACLU has a post up on one the the ACLU's very own- their pride and joy, a former Virginia’s American Civil Liberties Union top dog, and child porn downloader, who was recently sentenced.

This wasn't just a naked child here or there in a few files, according to the judge the child porn Charles Rust-Tierney downloaded was sickening to say the least.
The judge called it:

the most perverted and nauseating and sickening type of child pornography" she had seen in 10 years on the bench.


And:
"The child pornography you purchased was of the most abhorrent kind,"


And:
that "the term 'child pornography' does not convey the depravity" of the images that were downloaded.


The only thing more shocking that his crimes, was his sentence- which is less than half what the DA was requesting, and only two more years than the defense wanted.

Seven short years. For background and more information on this case, see the linkage above.
