    PA - Thomas Gordon arrested for child porn, Philadelphia, 2011

    So, does a TSA screener qualify as a "helping professional"? I guess we need to know that child porn collectors do wear uniforms of all types. But YIKES, considering some of the recent uproar about children being patted down. This is going to freak parents out even more. This guy can't be too bright, however, given the downloading of the images onto FB and Photobucket with a photo of himself. I'll bet LEOs love to be able to pick the easy ones out of the bunch. I wonder what the guy's issue with his schedule was--maybe not enough time to work on his collection?

    Airport passenger screener charged in distributing child pornography

    "A passenger screener at Philadelphia International Airport is facing charges that he distributed more than 100 images of child pornography via Facebook, records show. Federal agents also allege that Transportation Safety Administration Officer Thomas Gordon Jr. of Philadelphia, who routinely searched airline passengers, uploaded explicit pictures of young girls to an Internet site on which he also posted a photograph of himself in his TSA uniform.. Homeland Security agents arrested the TSA officer March 24, and he is being held without bail...."

    and


    "...Gordon began working as a TSA screener at the Philadelphia airport in December 2005, Davis said. The airport has 900 screeners, she said.

    If convicted of the child pornography charges, Gordon, 46, faces a minimum mandatory sentence of five years. The maximum prison term is 250 years and the top fine is $3.2 million. Gordon is paid $37,000 annually as a TSA screener, records show. He has no prior criminal record..."

    and

    "...The charges detail 104 illicit photographs allegedly uploaded over four weeks in February. Authorities also seized from Gordon an HP laptop and a four-gigabyte flash drive that they say contained more than 600 images or movies containing child pornography..."

    As I said, a real bright fellow. One has to wonder how he got that job.
