    O.K. I'm sending up a prayer that people get a clue. People like the accused as well as people in the "Justice System" and the press.

    19 year old Adam Burk whose job it is to scare people as a haunted house worker is scary for real. This guy had massive amounts of child pornography which are listed at link. It was too much for me to count. Oh and he had images with as Miss Izzy calls it the "B" word.

    The Judge gave him a warning before setting him free. Don't be on the internet and don't be working in the haunted house. What? Pahlease. She asked "Do you understand?" Now what do ya think the kid is going to say? "Yes maam". He's got court in November and has a public defender.

    When asked what a guy his age would be looking at child pornography for and downloading it his answer was "I don't know". Hello. Earth to world. He's got a huge problem that just won't up and go away. Who cares how old he is? Well actually it figures in and gives him at least another 40 years to keep going. The naivette. Burk wants to prove he's no threat to society.

    BTW, he was busted from of all things file sharing. Again I got a headache. He needs to be locked up for Lord's sake.

    Great big whompin' thanks. I was just posting this and you are oh so right. There's that dreaded "B" word. Filly what comes after that? Nothing is sacred. Not our babies. Not our pets. Not our babies and pets together.

    http://www.freep.com/article/201010...ses-other-defendants-to-fess-up#ixzz12PDe7qIx

    • 14,315 child pornography images
    • More than 1,000 child pornographic movies.
    • 4 images of children involved in bondage
    • 32 images of children involved in bestiality.


    and

    "...Burk, using the pseudonym “jamskater90,” was tapping into two neighbors’ wireless networks to access and distribute child pornography..." [What happens to those poor fools?]

    and

    "He said the government “probably” has a case against him, and that he is fully cooperating. He has quit his job at the haunted house, although he is still allowed to work the midnight shift on an assembly line at a cable company. During the day, he is under a court-ordered curfew, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

    “I’m trying to prove to them that I’m not a threat to society. I haven’t hurt anybody. I haven’t threatened anybody,” he said....."

    more at link


    I'd better go get the anti-seizure meds. I need them close after reading that on top of the elves. Lord spare me. Hasn't hurt anyone? Not a child, not a loved one, not even his owned dang family? I'd buy that argument IF he illegally burned CDs and agreed to pay the penalty. And tethered to the house? Excuse me. Unless they've buried a dirigible tie down in the back yard, I'm not real happy. He's coming home from work just as little kids are going to school!! We're talking thousands and thousands of children.

    Izzy, please do not have a seizure on me. In the midst of all this horror and I don't mean the haunted house you made me laugh putting the elves in there.

    Hold onto your hat. Mr. Burk was interviewed. I'm posting the link. Like every pedophile the world over he does not full accept the blame. He says yeah he downloaded it, but he didn't create it. "Why aren't they out there catching the people that create it?"

    Whaaaaaaat? Supply and demand fool. You're looking at images of infants and little kids and animals and you got the gall to say that? Of course they all do. Never take full responsibility.

    Well he's cooperated with the FBI so we'll see what his sentence is.

    I really think there should be a one strike law when it comes to child pornography! Anyone caught downloading it, making it, or distributing it should be put away for life!

    Filly, a big ol' THANK YOU for posting this!

    Lately I've been spending my non-WS time online over at my other favorite BB, a forum dedicated to all things Halloween. Several of the members either run haunts at their own homes, or are in some way associated with large, professional haunted houses. While we discuss some of the legal issues such as fire codes, nuisance laws, etc, I can't say I've ever seen this topic addressed. I'm going to see that this is posted there ASAP. Who knows? It may just save a child.

    Filly, I know my limits. I shut 'er down as soon as I finished my post. My head was spinning with Mr. Elf-stress guy, another dancer/collector, and now this flake. This guy is following to a "T" all the rules about "so sorry, excuse me, I'm so ready to clean up my act". Yeah right.

    I'm focusing, instead, on the massive amount of stuff he collected using his wiles to steal naive folks' unsecured lines AND the fact that he's working at night. What, there are no computers at his work place....none? Surely he takes bathroom, snack, and smoke breaks. Is he watched when he takes off by himself for a few minutes? We are talking an addiction here.

    Personal story. I have a son who is totally porn addicted. Has been since he was 15. We had to give away the family computer as there was NO way to keep him off it. We tried everything but he got past every lock. Even though he is a very "slow" young guy, his computer skills are remarkable. Anyway, I once left my laptop in a LOCKED room for the night. He tried to pick the lock but couldn't get in. He crawled on the roof, broke a window, and got in that way. When I heard him leaving the room at 5:30 am and found the broken glass, I discovered that he'd been on the vilest (no children, thank God, but oh yeah there was the B stuff) sites for six hours. I also found (he left in a real hurry) a huge stack of meticulously written out urls. Sick. Sick. Sick.

    His vice principal told him that if he was even "seen" within ten feet of a computer, he'd be suspended. The school was really tired of dealing with his shenanigans as he broke into a teacher's classroom and climbed over firewalls to get to the stuff, even though he had a personal aid (he was supposed to be in the restroom). It's an addiction no different than meth. You have to want to stop. And they don't want to stop.

    And, if this guy's working the midnight shift and has to be on "lock-down" in his house by 11 am, what is he doing during those several hours after he gets off work in the morning?

    Hey Velouria--would that be HalloweenForum.com? I'm there too! I was wondering if any fellow WebSleuthers were also Halloween fiends!

    Aha. You and T-Rex have been outted.:D That's such a cool thing to be involved in.

    You're mighty welcome. V, I'll tell ya that'd have been my first concern. Although my mom would never let us go into haunted houses or house of mirrors because she swore it would catch fire. Me? I worry about freaks and not the kind from the living dead.

    Carry on and enjoy. It's a good issue to bring forward. Hey, it's reality unfortunately. Not sure of your location but you'd love our Eastern State Penitentary.

    not a threat to society ... yeah, whatever - be seeing you in the news Adam - I can only hope it`s because someone exacted a little street justice on you and not because you violated another child (and yes, you did violate those children when you downloaded images of their abuse)

    Wasn't sure where to post this. I figured here would be a pretty good place as it has to do with the holiday.

    It's about different States and their laws and rules on how RSO may approach the holiday. Take time to look up Florida cause that one has a loophole.


    http://www.foxcarolina.com/news/25447876/detail.html

    Also I recall having a thread about some cocky arsed RSO and his cocky arsed wife and how both defied the law and proceeded with their spooky ritual each year. I'll find it.

    Dang freaks have to ruin everything for the kids.


    O.K. I think this is him. Matt Gordon.

    Warning wife in denial.

    Also I just saw in Maryland they actually may put a sign on a RSO's lawn saying "NO CANDY HERE" to which some adults say may add to the mystique for older kids who travel for their candy. Could be. Ya know make it more scary.

    Here's the Criminal Complaint against Burk. My prayers are also with SA Nicol. Note that he is required to state that he "personally viewed" many of these images. Young children, sex toys and a calf. Yes, a calf:

    http://media.mlive.com/citpat/news_impact/other/adam_burk_complaint.pdf


    Here's the Conditions of Release:

    http://media.mlive.com/citpat/news_impact/other/adam_burk_bond.pdf


    I wish I knew just who determines who is a "responsible adult". FWIW, check out Burk's signature, on the last page. It doesn't look like a typical signature of a 19 year old male. I have special needs children who write just like that. Might be nothing but I wonder if Burk has developmental disabilities. That certainly wouldn't make his crime any less. It would explain a few things for me, however.

    I found this and am not sure what it is. Looks like Burk was also participating in sharing his own photos. I translated this from Maltese to English and he's not played any games but is a member of the group, "Queer Texas". Says his location is Concord, Michigan. That's him alright.

    Nothing pornographic but an interesting set of "friends" and a photo of himself (click on photos--there are three), on a school bus. Looks to me like he's wearing a seat belt. IME, there's only one kind of school bus that requires the use of seat belts. If he is DD, he could still be in school. Special ed services continue through age 21. This particular site is interesting as members of the different gay groups range in age (from a quick perusal) from 12-51. Check out some of the photos. Many who claim to be 17-18 are most definitely NOT. Those boys are much much younger. I didn't raise nine sons and fail to be able to correctly identify ages. Many of the youngest and most lovely little boys have 100s of "friends". And note that pics are shared. Yikes!! Many of the photos of the very young boys seem to be professionally taken and are highly sexually suggestive. Some are amateurish and taken by themselves.

    http://mt-mt.hi5.com/friend/p89695666--Adam_Burk--html


    I could be all wet and this guy could be totally on target--at least developmentally. The reason this intrigues me so much is that much of the general public discounts the fact that our DD population seem to have no disabilities whatsoever in managing electronics. I've never fully understood it but I've witnessed it again and again. They also have a huge amount of time on their hands as they often are not engaged socially.

    Now, if they could just learn to use the bus, count money, and tell time. I guess it's all about motivation.

    Really amazing (but oh, so common) that so many commenters are yelling and screaming that Burk would NEVER look at pornography of young children. They KNOW this to be the truth. The porn "must be of 16-17 year olds" and "besides, we need to be concentrating on the really bad crimes". Jeesh.

    I agree about our DD population being adept at managiing electronics. I have seen a number of children who are otherwise very delayed be able to navigate computers and phones better than I can.

    I believe you said it there Teo. There should be no second chances at all. I am having a fit reading this stuff here. URG. OMG, what has it all come too...?

    One strike and that is it. Good point

    I don't know if anyone remembers the beautiful but DD twin teen girls who disappeared from their adoptive home in Malibu a couple of years ago. They were found a few days later with a pimp who'd already had his name tattooed on one girl. Both had been sexually assaulted.

    I'll never forget the public comments about that case--people yelling that the girls weren't supervised well enough, that their adoptive parents had trumped up the teens' challenges for higher assistance, that no one that beautiful could be disabled (what a bunch of bean juice, I'd like you guys to see my children), that there was no way that disabled girls (their parents and teachers said they functioned as 10 year olds) could have set up MS accounts and managed texting like they did.

    Our special ed teachers and our family just shook our heads as that's what we dealt with every single day with some of our teens with DD. Typically developing teens have a lot on their plate. Teens with DD have a lot of time on their hands. They can excel at something that they put a lot of energy into. They often aren't in tough classes, aren't working, not learning to drive. They've got the time and often the motivation.

    Sit down someday and play a simple game of Memory with a five year old. They'll beat you every time as their brain is not crammed full of the garbage that adults carry around. They're not worrying about the bills and what to make for dinner. They're focused on matching the two princess cards. Trust me.

    I don't want to get off track, though. We have no proof that this guy has any challenges. But I suspect he does. And that website gave me the creeps. No computers in kids' bedrooms!!!!

    Oh, this guy STILL gives me the creeps. Sick sick young man.

    Not nearly enough time, IMO. Some very worrisome comments there, Filly.
