'Offensive' images found in S.F. school murals
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 6/24/11 | Stephanie Lee

San Francisco -- The head of a children's art organization, arrested three weeks ago for possession of child pornography, placed "offensive" tiles in murals he created at four city schools, San Francisco police said Friday.

Some 100 "inappropriate" tiles have been found in murals at Sunset Elementary School and three other unnamed schools in the city, said Police Chief Greg Suhr.

Anthony Josef Norris, founder and director of Kid Serve Youth Murals,designed and worked on all the projects. The San Francisco man surrendered June 2 to the FBI after agents investigating a website known for child pornography traced the log-on name of "Spanky" to his home computer and discovered 600 pornographic images of children, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed in federal court in San Francisco.

22) Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings,” substitute shapeless, awkward, and meaningless forms.

23) Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography, and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.

26) Present homosexuality, degeneracy, and promiscuity as “normal, natural, and healthy.”

Thanks GSWarrior.

I'm sure the school officials in SF were shocked, shocked I tell you!

There was a recent article about families moving out of San Francisco. Of course, they didn't mention anything like this.

Portland (OR) is already ahead of them. They’ve had not one but two child rapists as Mayor (and one was Governor and a Carter Cabinet Secretary), including the current one.

What qualifies as “offensive” in SF now? It might be a depiction of boys playing with toy pistols or girls playing with dolls.

Noting that there are no photos of the offensive tiles, and noting that this is San Fransicko we are reading about, is it possible that the porn tiles were so designated because they have heterosexual imagery?

The interim Mayor of SF (after Newsom left) is actually doing a decent job. Of course he has no chance to win the mayoral election should he elect to run.

Sick, degenerate scum. But be prepared. With all this gay-marriage crap and fag-drenched culture, expect to see more of these depraved sickos and molesters prancing around in the open public, going after kids. They’ll be pushing the envelope all over the place.

I’m sure there’s people who hate the idea of San Francisco having a mayor who actually does the job instead of preening for the media.

Authorities began inspecting close to 40 murals, which comprise tens of thousands of individual tiles, when the San Francisco Unified School District notified authorities after Norris' arrest

So somebody knew about it before his arrest, and didn't say anything? Sounds like another story, if there is an investigative reporter available in San Fran.

Perhaps. His arrest could have raised a red flag with school officials, however, prompting them to look into the matter.

While in no way speaking in favor of his acts (if true), when you talk about tiles as small as 1"x1" - HOW CAN YOU TELL without a roadmap?

Then the reporter uses (with a straight face!?) the following line; "So far, no evidence suggests that children were harmed in the making of the murals." Frankly, I'm not sure that this is not satire!

Better than a good bet he had some kind of grant. San Francisco, once that roaring frontier town of capitalism, is on life support culturally. Anything goes.

“Suhr said police have to date inspected nearly 40 school murals, each of which contain tens of thousands of tiles.

Approximately 100 “inappropriate” tiles were found, Suhr said.

Police did not provide images of the tiles to the media, or discuss what specifically was deemed offensive.

“I think as an adult, you would look at these tiles and see, possibly, some sort of sexual connotation to them,” said police Cmdr. Mike Biel, who heads the department’s investigations division.

Biel said many of the tiles were embedded with images “like a negative of a photograph that is inlaid behind the clear tile itself.”

“They depict many things,” he said. “Some may be construed as offensive, some may not. And some of the tiles are actually drawings, so not all of them are actually photographs.”

Would seem to me he got some jollies by putting the images there, knowing the kids were looking at them, even if they didn’t know exactly what they were seeing.

I followed your sfexaminer link to look at the pics, thinking perhaps there were some images embedded, like the lines of a nude woman in that old vodka ad, and you know what? There was a vodka ad accompanying the article!

LOL..
They did have that very helpful pic of the mural with the tile removed /rolls eyes

The pedophiles will always be found near children. Any organization that works with schools and with kids like this should be examined closely and kept an eye on by parents and the community. The sad fact is in so many cases, especially the schools, no one is really paying attention.
Yet one more reason why centralized education system is bad. This guy had access to many schools and hundreds of children. Who knows what else he was surreptitiously doing?

I also wonder if some folks might have gotten a “gut feeling” when they met this guy but brushed it off.

There have been 2 times in my life I have met someone that set off the “this is evil” alarm. In one instance I was proven correct when the man was arrested for molesting girls. The other instance I will never know for sure.

I read that they finally Goldshidt’s portrait down in the capitol. Many years after he admitted it.

In San Fran they’d probably build him a statue.
