Disturbing details emerge in former federal official's case (Miami ICE Official-CONTENT WARNING)
Orlando Sentinel ^ | 10/13/12 | Jon Burstein,

They existed in the darkest corners of the Internet with the screen names BookStoreMomNC and Oldrmom111.

BookStoreMomNC would e-mail child pornography and describe how she would spank her daughters, Hannah and Rachel.

(SNIP) That man was one of South Florida's most powerful federal law enforcement officers.

Anthony Mangione, the local chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, had become what he was sworn to hunt down.

While the married father of three helped lead the local fight against child pornography, he was sending illicit images to a former school bus driver in Delaware who would be busted with a vast collection of child pornography, court records show. Federal authorities in Delaware said they not only found more than 700 pieces of child pornography on the computers of David Osborn, but also 500 Internet chat logs he had with "others regarding child sexual exploitation."

One of those "others" was Mangione, court records show. Chat transcripts between Mangione and Osborn shed new and disturbing light on the veteran law enforcement officer's online activities before his September 2011 arrest.

Mangione, who once supervised more than 450 federal employees in nine Florida counties, is now behind bars...

I used to work next to a investigator who did fed kiddie porn cases.

He once told me, wearily, that he could set up a room with fifty investigators and work them 24-7 on child porn and exploitation cases and it still would not solve the problem.

Just in the US.

Probably right.

A long time ago, before this stuff got to be known and our police didn’t know what was moving, I fed a few servers to the guys trying to push legislation. They actually got both money and laws. Did some good for a while, but I think liberalism has nullified any effect.

When the guardians are guilty of abusing those they’re to guard, then they most serve as an example. Max sentence. No parole.

Years ago (probably about 7 or 8), I knew an FBI agent who was a computer geek. He told me ANYONE who was arrested for ANYTHING always had their computer confiscated & it was his job to review it. He said 99% of the time, there was kiddie porn on it....no matter what the person was arrested for: drugs, guns, gang bangers, etc. They almost always had child porn. It made me sick when this guy forced me to see what a huge, widespread problem this is. May God have mercy on this world.

...and all of this has been IGNORED by the South Florida Obama-ass-kissing TV and radio stations...

Because to reveal these perverted charges would be to shine a light on the utter and complete failure of the Obamugabe administration, and to reveal the failure of Team Obamugabe is never in the interest of the South Florida broadcast media.

Or the print media, either...the “New Times” and the “Miami Hurled” and the Fort Lauderdale “Shun Sentinel” are more house organs for liberalism.

In the old days our local communities had a way of taking of child molestation cases with some very swift justice. But the lawyers decided that they weren't getting any money out of that so they started writing laws, to line their pockets with.

What are the odds this guy was also involved in some way in the Elian kidnapping ~ that’d made it dangerous for anyone else to do a proper background check on him as he moved up the career ladder.

You have to wonder what it does to the mind of a person who has to watch that crap as part of their job. How many become immersed in it?

I have often wondered about that. When I was growing up (40's and 50's), so-called "child molestation" was simply non-existent (and/or unreported).

Yet, I was aware that it occurred -- though rarely and, always, somewhere else -- from adult conversations.

Subsequently, it struck me that vigilante action was a quite conceivable solution to the problem -- whenever it might occur. A small town, such as where I grew up, would readily accept and cover for a.) a missing person who perpetrated such an event and b.) the local men who "took care of" the problem.

And, despite a small town's penchant for "gossip", the affair would never have been spoken of again.

Such actions may well have resulted in several unmarked graves in just about every rural county of the USA.

Democrats were already on the move since last July rounding up bad character reference people to use against any likely Republican candidates ~ This guy got busted in September 2011 so I"ll guess some of the folks who'd had their eye on who was watching him were tied up elsewhere.

Kraushaar springs to mind as someone who certainly was tied up at that time ~ given that Axelrod didn't just pick up on her a day or two before she showed up as a complainant against Caine ~ had to be 4 or 5 weeks earlier, and that'd be back in September.

Wonder if the perp here would like to talk to the FBI come January 23 2012 about any relationship he had to Kraushaar or other federal cops or investigative types way back when.

I too grew up in the 40’s and 50’s and the town and county LEO’s usually delt out the swift justice or at least supervised the victims family dealing it out. As I remember it us kids had a very good rumor network especially about sexual exploration (who was doing what with who) any boy who hurt a girl (from the get go we were taught that you don’t hit girls no matter how mean the girl got) was usually ruffed up for a while (now days it’s called bullying).

When they start arresting conservatives as traitors, 99% of them will have child porn on their computers, too. Just a nice insurance policy for the FBI to force plea bargains, in case the main case doesn’t hold up.

My small town was much like yours. As most of the small towns across the country probably were.

I recall one occasion when three of us -- teenage pranksters all -- were called before the JP (complete with summons). Our parents were required to attend. The JP read the list of charges (all true) and we were asked to testify in our own defense. We had none. The JP then rendered judgment -- 30 days in the county clink and a $100 fine. We gasped. He then suspended the sentence and the fine, and released us on probation for 90 days -- promising to erase the infractions if we maintained good behavior.

For 90 days, we were good as we could be.

Years later, I discovered that there had been a meeting between the constable, the JP and our parents...and, as a group, they had mapped out the entire charade.

Our parents thoroughly enjoyed telling us of our alarmed expressions during the "trial".

There's no better place to grow up than a small town.

We lost this battle when the liberals started to call them adult shops.....they use to be dirty book stores and got shut down pretty fast. That was before laws were weaved though the courts and the SC gave it the OK. That law made sodomy legal, and porn got flooded into the country...

I don’t know whem the battle was lost, but as late as 2003 things were going our way still. But now - just to look at my country - every single “conservative paper” is:

Run by the far left.

Has at least a couple of muslims at the top.

Has homosexual activists.

Is running activism to have child porn legalized/normalized.

The internet is actually of such a nature that if you have any kind of surfing activity, you are likely to run across this stuff and have a dirty computer. You may not even know ut. Good places to avoid is Japan, East Europe and Canada. I’ve followed political trails to Japanese communists, for example, just to get police popups warning that I was wandering into a child porn zone.
