Postal Service Sells Child Porn- Then Arrests Customers
Don't get me wrong- I'm not a fan of child porn or people who promote it. But reading this story leaves me with a lot of unanswered questions like :

1. How can the postal service post an ad for child porn and then arrest people who respond to it? Isn't that entrapment?

2. Who the fuck buys anything on VIDEO TAPE anymore?

3. Has this guy never watched a cop show on TV (or on video tape even)?

Jesus, man- Rule #1, after being arrested, is ALWAYS: ask for a lawyer before you say ANYTHING.

And even if you can't remember that rule- you can AT LEAST REMEMBER NOT TO ADMIT OT SOMETHING EVEN WORSE! e.g. if they arrest you for watching child porn DO NOT make it worse by admitting to touching and/or exposing yourself to small boys at a church camp.

Former pastor pleads guilty to receiving child pornography
Associated Press
COLUMBUS, Ohio - A former pastor pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday to receiving child pornography across state lines, the U.S. Department of Justice said.
David Waser, 57, former pastor of Newark's Second Church of Christ, faces five to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced in U.S. District Court.
Authorities said Waser ordered 11 child pornography videos in June 2006 by sending a $130 money order to an address listed on an Internet advertisement that had been posted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Officials said some of the videos involved children as young as 4.
A postal inspector who posed as a letter carrier delivered the videos to Waser's home in July and obtained a search warrant immediately afterward. The inspector found the package opened and one of the videos inserted into a VCR, the government said.
"He cooperated with authorities, he accepted responsibility, he's seeking treatment," said Waser's attorney Keith Yeazel. "Once he's sentenced, he's potentially looking at a lifetime of supervision."
Besides a prison sentence, Waser faces a fine of up to $250,000, supervised release for up to life and the possibility that he would be required to register as a sexual offender.
A U.S. postal inspector testified in August that Waser said in interviews that he touched several children inappropriately during the past 37 years and had exposed himself to children at church camp and pretended it was an accident.
Waser was being held in a Franklin County jail. A sentencing date had not yet been scheduled, Yeazel said.
