Former ACLU Of Virginia President Arrested For Downloading Kiddy Porn

You haven't heard anything from me about the ACLU president downloading kiddy porn because the whole thing makes me sick. Here's a refresher on the story, from ABC:

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."

One wonders what law enforcement is doing with all the tax-payer funds they receive when there is such a thing as a "commercial child pornography" website, but then, I guess they caught the perverts using it.

The ABC story describes the porn he had (in case you're actually from the ACLU, and therefore think kiddy porn shouldn't be illegal):

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."

Honestly, these people leave me speechless...

Stop The ACLU has a roundup going. Ace notes that Rust-Tierney wife may have known about his Kiddy Porn.

Practically every mention of this guy has been removed from the ACLU of Virginia's website, but in case you were wondering how a pedofile's brain works, here's a statement he wrote following the September 11th attacks:

Long recognized as one of the nation's foremost advocacy
groups, the ACLU emerged as the preeminent voice for
protecting civil liberties following the attacks by terrorists last
fall. While the National ACLU continues to work at the highest
levels of public policy, most notably in Congress, the state
affiliates, as always, are in the trenches.

In this newsletter, you will find numerous references to the
ACLU of Virginia's work on post-September 11 issues, from our
op-ed that appeared in newspapers last fall to our defense of the
suspended Muslim student attending UVA, from protecting a
shopkeeper's right to post an anti-terrorism sign to lobbying
against the General Assembly's overreactions to terrorism.

And there are other important efforts you will not read
about here. You will not see a listing of the scores of speaking
engagements and media interviews taken on by staff and
volunteers to educate the public on the value of maintaining
constitutional rights in times of crisis. This kind of public
education is especially important at a time when so many people
seem eager to put aside fairness and freedom to fight terrorism.

You also will not find chronicled in this newsletter the
numerous calls to our office from concerned minority groups and
individuals seeking guidance as the threats to their privacy and
safety mount. Some say that our nation is returning to normal,
but that is certainly not true for those who practice the Muslim
faith or whose name or appearance even vaguely ties them to the
Middle East.

That's right, following 9/11 the single most important issue facing the nation was "public education," "at a time when so many people seem[ed] eager to put aside fairness and freedom to fight terrorism."

My God, I wanted to do a little more research into this so I ran a search through Google News for "Rust-Tierney." It yielded only 17 results!

What liberal media bias?

I'm trying to dig up a post I read somewhere on the media's cover up, but I can't find it...
