Angry MA-Man receives 1 year for possession of Child Porn


Well, I cannot say that this sentence is going to inspire child porn addicts to lose sleep over the consequences of possessing this material....The 62 year old was convicted as part of a sting out of CA where a COMPANY was distributing the material. Alan Greco, the perp, had HUNDREDS of illegal DVD's in his home and was arrested when he picked up the material at the Post Office.

Stone cold busted.

The article enraged me for many reasons, but primarily because of this statement:

"Police say there was no evidence that he ever harmed a child."

Right. 'Cause the manufacturing and purchasing of child porn doesnt harm any children apparently.

It is my opinion that MA judges are the most lenient judges in the US. Some of the sentences they hand out are laughable.

I think someone should start a recall campaign in MA and make a bunch of noise. Even if a recall never happens, the judges would get the messages that the people of MA want tougher sentences for these POS. Maybe this guy will also have to do a federal trial? One can only hope.

So.... if he got his porn from CA, why wasn't this a federal case?

~snip~ Greco was caught receiving child pornography in the mail from a California company ~ end snip ~

From believe's article: http://www.bostonherald.com/news/reg...15772&srvc=rss

So sad! And yes, EVERY piece of child porn HURTS a child.
