Only ABC Reports ACLU-connected Porno Bust

The O’Reilly Factor last night led off with the fact that only ABC, of all major news organizations, reported the arrest for child pornography of a former, and prominent, ACLU official. The Washington Post, O’Reilly said, had mentioned the story in its second section. O’Reilly’s point was that the mainstream press hypes stories that embarrass conservatives, while burying similar stories about liberals.

Here is the story:
“Former ACLU Chapter President Arrested for Child Pornography”
Complaint Alleges Virginia Man Accessed, Downloaded Graphic Child Pornography
By JACK DATE, ABC News

Feb. 23, 2007— - Federal agents arrested Charles Rust-Tierney, the former president of the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, Friday in Arlington for allegedly possessing child pornography.

According to a criminal complaint obtained by ABC News, Rust-Tierney allegedly used his e-mail address and credit card to subscribe to and access a child pornography website.

The complaint states that federal investigations into child pornography websites revealed that "Charles Rust-Tierney has subscribed to multiple child pornography website over a period of years."

As recently as last October, the complaint alleges, "Rust-Tierney purchased access to a group of hardcore commercial child pornography websites."

Complaint Alleges Access to Graphic Material
Rust-Tierney admitted to investigators that he had downloaded videos and images from child pornography websites onto CD-ROMs, according to the complaint.

The videos described in the complaint depict graphic forcible intercourse with prepubescent females. One if the girls is described in court documents as being "seen and heard crying", another is described as being "bound by rope."

The investigation is being conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and the Arlington County Police as part of the Northern Virginia and District of Columbia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Rust-Tierney made an initial appearance in a federal court in Alexandria, VA, Friday. He is being detained pending a preliminary hearing scheduled for Wednesday, February 28.

Youth Coach, Argued Against Restricting Public Internet
Rust Tierney coaches various youth sports teams in and around Arlington, Virginia, according to court documents.

In the past, Rust-Tierney had argued against restricting Internet access in public libraries in Virginia, writing, "Recognizing that individuals will continue to behave responsibly and appropriately while in the library, the default should be maximum, unrestricted access to the valuable resources of the Internet."

Calls to Rust-Tierney's home were not answered and calls to the ACLU of Virginia were not immediately returned.

So much for the ACLU,-- Hu? Is it any wonder why they are sticking up for NAMBLA and child pedophiles, calling it a violation of free speech? All the Liberals in this country got on the bandwagon last year making hey out of the Mark Foley sex scandal, and hollering for investigations and heads to roll. Well, where are they now? How about all of the fools out there who contribute to the ACLU? How much of your money is being used to represent NAMBLA, the same sick organization that those two child pedophiles were reading about before they raped and murdered little Jeffrey Curley of Boston?
