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

Beware the guy at the computer repair store!

Especially if you aren't into the idea of him finding your child porn collection and calling police.

Detectives said 63-year-old Gerald Kang from Hoquiam brought his computer, to a repair shop recently where the repairman discovered child pornography on the machine and called police.

OF course, Kang declared this all a misunderstanding, and is going all out in with his imaginative defense.

“Whoever sent the pictures is not necessarily a child," said Kang, who is currently charged with one count of child pornography.

Kang believes most of the people who sent him photos were adults posing as children and claims he was just doing research on the Internet.

"I was researching to be a writer. Something to write about, so to speak," said Kang.

Detectives searched Kang's home and discovered printouts of chat room conversations where he allegedly posed as a teenage boy looking to trade sexually explicit photos with underage girls.

The printout logs sate back 6 years, so I'm sure that police have a lot to go on, and will be spending a while investigating this perv, although currently he's only charged with one sole count of child pornography. He's out on bail, and holding strong to his claims that he 'didn't know possessing child pornography was a felony and never meant to hurt children'.

Yeah, I'm buying that and while we're chatting- I have some ocean front property for you in Nevada.

Thanks to Trench for the tip!
