South Florida ICE Chief Indicted on Child Pornography Charges

(CNSNews.com) - The chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in south Florida has been indicted on charges of transportation, receipt, and possession of child pornography.

Following a nearly six-month investigation, federal investigators searched 50-year-old Anthony Mangione’s home in April and found “one or more” images of “a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.”

Mangione has served 27 years in law enforcement and has headed up ICE’s regional office since July 2007.

He entered a not guilty plea on Wednesday, and at the request of the both the defense and prosecution, the judge ordered that he be sent to Miami for a psychological evaluation.

The indictment states that Mangione knowingly transported “by any means, including by computer, one or more visual depictions, where the production of such visual depictions involved the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct and the visual depictions are of such conduct.”

The transportation and receipt charges carry minimum sentences of 5 years. The possession charge carries a maximum of 10 years and if convicted on all charges, a maximum of 50 years in prison.

According to the press release announcing the indictment, Mangione also faces a “term of supervised release of five years to life following his prison sentence, and will be required to register as a sex offender in any jurisdiction in which he lives, works, or attends school.”

In a 2008 press release after ICE put a man behind bars for 10 years for using the Internet to lure in a minor for sexual activities, Mangione was quoted as saying, “This case reveals the disturbing truth that child predators will go to great lengths to sexually exploit minors ... ICE is committed to identifying and arresting these individuals who seek to victimize children and help ensure that justice is served.”

Hypocritical a--hole!

Why is anyone surprised that our low level law enforcement is just following the examples of their leaders. DOJ is a cesspool of incompetent, misfits that are also just following their leaders.

My first thought was, “I wonder who in Washington he pissed off.” Rumor has it that “child porn on the computer” is the modern version of the planted bag of pot from years gone by.

Most LEO’s feel that they are completely above the laws they enforce against the rest of us. It’s a national disgrace! So few Joe Arpaio’s and Paul Babeau’s, so many Mangione’s!

With the current regime’s policy towards illegal immigration, I imagine these ICE guys have a lot of free time on their hands. It’s still not right though. Checkers or poker would have been a better way to kill those long, boring work days.

“One or more images” makes me suspicious. In my experience both prosecuting and defending (yuck) these cases, if the person has kiddie porn, he has THOUSANDS of images on his computer or in his home, not one or a dozen or a hundred.

Not only that, but they tend to be neatly sorted and filed.

If we keep on the same track of Leftist amorality, the day will come when you will be prosecuted for objecting to man-boy “love”.

Illegal females - women and children - are often victimized by the perverts who abet their illegal entry. We bust their rings in Texas all the time.

That is why it is disgusting for Perry to name his support of illegal immigration as something moral and “of the heart.” Talk about up-side-down bs! Illegal immigration is a criminal operation involving corrupt politicans and government employees.
