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

History of the camera phone

Cell phones are neat little things. There is just so much you can do with them nowadays. It used to be, way back before cell phones became the "thing" that all you could do with your phone was talk on it. And the most your phone could do for you was connect you to someone else, either when they called you or you called them. But now- now things are different. Now your phone can do all sorts of things like- browse the internet, send email, take photos, take video, play games, and even help get you arrested.

Barry Glenn Thunder knows this all to well
, since he'd been using his cell phone to take pornographic photos and videos of two small children which is how his phone ended up getting him arrested.

It seems that Thunder left his phone in the possession of someone else, who began playing with the phone. While messing with it, they discovered the photos and videos and informed police.

Police say the 3 and 4 year-old victims, who are sisters and their mother, used to live at 3520 North 8th street with Thunder.

Police say after the phone was discovered, interviews with the second victim revealed she had also been attacked.

But it's the evidence that sets this case apart for police.

"I can't recall one specifically that we've found these kind of depictions that actually made itself, that was not only videoed and pictures taken, and luckily for us, saved," said Bailey.
