A 41-year-old resident of Houston, Texas has been arrested after Google tipped off police that they had spotted child abuse images in his emails.
John Henry Skillern, a registered sex offender with a sexual assault charge dating back to 1994, was picked up on Tuesday, July 29th and later charged with one count of possession of child pornography and one count of promotion of child pornography.
A search of his home and equipment uncovered further images of child abuse, emails and text messages discussing his pedophilic tendencies, and even cell-phone videos of children visiting the branch of Denny's in Pasadena, Tx., where Skillern worked as a cook.
He is now being held in custody on a $200,000 bond.
The investigation was apparently sparked by a tip-off sent by Google to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, after explicit images of a child were detected in an email he was sending.

Next, they’ll notify Valerie Jarrett that I don’t like Obama and she will have the IRS and EPA ‘check’ me out.
I am surprised they didn’t just market a subscription to NAMBLA to him.
A fair question. I did not realise that they monitored the content of emails - but I am not really surprised.
“Next, theyll notify Valerie Jarrett that I dont like Obama and she will have the IRS and EPA check me out.”....
You will have lots of company as there are many of us out here that despise the “ba$tard child”.
A key quote from the article...
“Email services in particular are seen as a sensitive area where people might expect some privacy, but Google’s business model relies on crunching everything we do in order to push the right advertising in our direction, and email is a great source of personal info on those who use it.”
My question....do they actually have people reading these Emails, or are they actively scanning for certain key-words?
Either way....I never assume that anything is really private once it leaves my head....and I’m not totally sure about that ;-)
But apparently, the secret service determined that freepers were merely angry old white men blowing off steam so they stopped doing that.
There is is imaging software that digital forensics professionals use to scan for details that alert the Computer Forensics Investigator that the data contains child porn...and then there’s steganography....
Wrong, that would take too much time. Since they are in control of the entire email process they will generate kiddie porn emails to take out those of us that do not agree with their left wing ideology. Think what would happen if Lois Lerner had the ability to compose emails from the accounts of those she considered a-holes and terrorists. The left will stop at nothing to destroy the opposition.
That is next. Child abuse is the only current exception to anarcho-tyranny that will be enforced by the elites such as those at Google. But that won’t last long as pedophilia and “consensual child sex” becomes normalized.
It is absolutely not "good and everything". Google is supposed to be using automated tools to extract marketing-related information from emails, with no human review. That's quite different from snooping for all sorts of other information, then acting on it in ways that might involve legal action.
It is very worrisome that Google is acting like the NSA, and cooperating so closely with the government. I wonder if secret reports about "right wing extremists" are being generated, for instance...
For myself, this has finally pushed me over the edge to boycotting Google as much as possible. Fascism is right around the corner.
