What Julie Howe could have done, what ANY parent or concerned citizen witnessing some dirtbag in the Seattle Public Library watching porn which is easily seen by minors, is to:
a.) Take a quick picture of the perp in front of the computer terminal, preferably with the screen showing the porn being viewed at that moment, date & time stamped.
b.) Call 911 and report a crime in progress, request an officer respond to the library site.
c.) When the officers arrive, present them with the picture taken of the perp, and hand them the following:
9.68.130 - Revised Code of Washington
"Sexually explicit material" Defined Unlawful display.
(1) A person is guilty of unlawful display of sexually explicit material if he or she knowingly exhibits such material on a viewing screen so that the sexually explicit material is easily visible from a public thoroughfare*, park or playground or from one or more family dwelling units.
(2) "Sexually explicit material" as that term is used in this section means any pictorial material displaying direct physical stimulation of unclothed genitals, masturbation, sodomy (i.e. bestiality or oral or anal intercourse), flagellation or torture in the context of a sexual relationship, or emphasizing the depiction of adult human genitals: PROVIDED HOWEVER, That works of art or of anthropological significance shall not be deemed to be within the foregoing definition.
(3) Any person who violates subsection (1) of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
* - as the public library is NOT private property, and is open to the public, the aisles and pathways within that facility may be construed as a 'public thoroughfare'.
Then speak those citizen-empowering words:
"Officer? Do Your Duty, Thank You"

(Let's do to Mitt what his Irish Setter did to him while tied to the roof rack of his station wagon!)
EXACTLY! Thanks for posting that.
Couldn’t the Library staff be charged with aiding and abetting in that instance???
