The question I have is, were these sickos always amoung us at this level and just laid low ? Or are there more nuts now than, say, 25yrs. ago.? I mean, 25yrs. ago we didn't have school shootings every week either. Is this just another sign of a decaying society ? Or are pediphiles more bold ? It seems like pediphiles coming out of the woodwork.

Hey mickey...I think it's always been around, but like so many other issues, now it's brought out into the open, and with the widespread use/abuse of the internet it's just...well you know what I mean. I think

Where's the feedback forum for the John White Murder sentencing? Nice to know I can exit my home with an illegal handgun and use deadly physical force against an unarmed teen, play the race card at trial and then get a reduced sentence off of the judge's original offer to plea for 4-6 and get 2-4. When you can't argue the facts pull the race card. This case has set back race relations 50 years thanks to Freddie K. Brewington. I ask all of you this if the roles were reversed and there was a dead black teen at the hands of a white homeowner who used an illegal handgun and the sentence was 2-4 Al Sharpton and his savage band of cohorts would be burning down the courthouse.

Isn't there a nut-job, radio talk show host also named Mike Gallagher? That Mike Gallagher has the same perverted looking, deformed face as this alleged "child sex porn" connoisseur has.(I say alleged because he have to presume innocence until the person charged is actually proven guilty)
Well, at least I'll have to say that this article makes me think that there really are a lot of advantages to home schooling your children. If this teacher is proven guilty, it is just another nail in the coffin that our public schools have crawled into. Our schools have been turned into perversion training centers for our children. One can just imagine what kind of awful sick material school children are being indoctrinated with. I hate to think what kind of a future our nation has.

There's been a forum every step of the way in that case. You need more? Enough is enough. Move on.

Long Island has thousands of teachers who find child porn as repulsive as the rest of us do, so this arrest is not a nail in any coffin. Every so often, a pediatrician is arrested on child pornography charges. Should parents stop taking their children to doctors?

It is scary that evil people who intend to do harm may be near our children even when we believe that our children are in a place where they should be safe. Having said that...I believe in the public school system. All schools have flaws: public, private and in the home. Where your child goes to school is up to you. As far as Michael Gallagher...we (the public) know limited information and should not condemn until we know all of the facts. If God forbid any of you were arrested, you would not like to be sent down the river without your fair share of due process.

Are you that ignorant? This is not a nail in the coffin. These sick SOB's come from every walk of life and every socio-economic level. Your attempt at shooting down public schools was poor indeed. Then again, ignorance is bliss huh?

Ya'll needa grow the FCKU up! Black people have the same rights as us whites do, jackasses. Fair trial. All I know is that that little italian **** shouldnt have been at the kids house that night and he'd still be alive. And his dad should be investigated for steroids cuz he was roid-raging in the court room yesterday."Lets See What Happens When Aaron White Gets Shot!" FU Maaan... Go jump off a bridge cuz its people like that racist **** who make his family and other ones like them look like a bunch of cavemen. I'd like to know where the Cicciaro lived so I can put a loaded firearm to his lips and make it that easier for him to see his 'beloved angel' son!
AND Mr. White didn't commit a murder. Self Defense, Actively! Because had the father not intervened, we'd be looking at the murder of Aaron White, as opposed to his bully. And what would be the result? The **** would go free because that is the world we live in.
Cicciaro didn't threaten Aaron White and if he did, it was Harrassment 2nd at the best a violation. You on the other hand have committed aggravated harrassment 2nd a misdememeanor by offering to put a gun to the lips of Mr. Cicciaro.

White didn't "prevent the murder of his son". Aaron White was home, in bed INSIDE his own home. Nothing about going outside with an illegal handgun nonetheless prevented anyone from "murdering Aaron". Had anyone entered the White family home armed with a bat or any other weapon Mr. White would have been justified in using deadly physical force to defend himself and his family and could have done so with his legally possessed shotgun, not his illegally possessed handgun.

If Mr. White were such an upstanding citizen he would be able to get a pistol permit and would have LEGALLY possessed the pistol he used that night. Then again if he had possessed that pistol legally, he would have been subjected to a background check and would have received a list of laws explaining under what circumstances he was authorized under the law to use deadly physical force. Had he legally possessed that pistol he would have known that he had no legal or moral right to do what he did. Shooting someone who breaks into your home is self defense and is admirable. Exiting your home armed with an illegal handgun without calling 911 is pre-meditated murder. Let us not forget that Aaron white was also armed with a shotgun and was committing criminal use of a firearm when he menaced the kids who "called his cell phone".

I have no doubt if the races in this drama were reversed the defendant would have received far more than 2-4 and most likely if a caucasian defendant had received 2-4 Al Sharpton would have been leading the ensuing race riot.

This is Barbara Kahn's way of balancing out the stiff but appropriate sentence she meted out to a black defendant last year for a horrific robbery, rape, sodomy and beating of a caucasian couple.

This sentence smacks of pandering to the black community and rewards the race baiting bigots such as Al Sharpton, The Nation of Islam, 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care and last but not least the Johnny Cochrane of Long Island Fred Brewington.

the porn was on his HOME computer, not school computer. what he did might not be acceptable by many people's standards and he difinately should NOT be able to teach child, but how about going after all the other teachers out there that are alcoholics and drug users.
just because teachers don't drink or use drugs at school doesn't mean that they don't do it when out of work. they are just as dangerous to children as the person who looks at porn. who knows what a person can do under the influence of drugs and alcohol.....
this whole world has gone nuts, you can't truth anyone anymore...

It is a sad world and scary to think that someone who you trust to care for your children could be harming them. Always be cautious about who you trust to care for you children.

Can a teacher have a personal life? I am a teacher and am by no stretch of the word an alcoholic, but I have an occasional drink now and then. A teacher is not a priest. They do not have to live like nuns. What people do in the privacy of their own homes is their own business. Not yours...unless their actions harm you in some way.

Thank you "Mother of one!"

Everyone always wants to go after the teachers. Nobody is a saint. How about we go after the alcoholic and/or drug using cops. Shoot, they carry guns, can use deadly force and they might show up whacked out. What about attorneys? I would hate to have legal counsel from a drunk/drug user. What about the guy that pumps gas? Imagine him getting whacked out and lighting up a smoke while he fills your car? How about bus drivers, cab drivers, daycare workers, you neighbor? Anyone can be an alcoholic or drug user, you better add a lot of other people to your list. Like i said earlier, ignorance is bliss...

I was so saddened and shocked when I heard about this. He was my childs teacher. He was one of the best teachers that my kid ever had in High School. I truly hope that he gets the help that he needs.
