What's the difference between Adams porn and plain old porn?

The headline is awful, but what can one expect from The Eagle?

let's all hope and pray that the DA and APD are providing the needed help to the victims and their families...and don't forget he has children as well who must be suffering so terribly at this time for they are the innocent as well

That retirement crap is only the tip of the iceberg with these public sector employies.Who in the private sector can get fired and get paid while they fight it? Private sector can not fight being fired except through a union and most all private sector jobs retire at 62.How about all the fireman out on scam disability known as the heart and lung law? This law was repealed in Connecticut because of rampant abuse.Any public sector employee out on a disability should not be allowed to work in the private sector and suck the taxpayer dry. All it takes for a scam disability at the fire department is high blood pressure. This can be controled in most all cases by medication and is no reason to offer a leach a free ride on the taxpayers back. Tea Party Now!

Did you hear? Seems we have a Ken Starr wannabe in Pittsfield!

In the meantime I suggest everyone go through their family photo albums and destroy all photos of any children in their pj's, bathing suits, underwear...or heaven forbid...all those pics of the bare baby butts! I know I have a pic of my 2 year old daughter mooning her sister...and if you have a really dirty mind, she may have a "come hither" look on her face. Please...don't you have something better to do in that cesspool you call a City?

He is not convicted yet is he? Wait for the trial and then go after him one way or the other.
nope

He should not receive any pension from the town he was looking at porn instead of working. I thought that was enough to fire him. But we should wait till he goes to trial first. He does not deserve it any person that has been caught looking at kiddy porn at work should automatically fired and lose all benefits. He knew what he was doing was wrong lets not make it right by giving him his benefits. He is a Pedophile and those people should not ever get rewarded for being one. It will send the message out that we the people do not want pedophiles around.

J.D. Salinger you ain't. Hmmmm, now that I think of it, Holden Caulfield was a bit f**ked up too so maybe it IS a good handle for you buddy. What is it about Holden that resonates with you...the lying, cheating, picking up hookers, being molested, his attempted suicide or maybe it was his inability to fit in with society? Just asking.

Does anyone know when the Lanesborough police chief, Frances Mark Bashara, plans to resign his public post?

Also, American Birthers wish to review Mr. Bashara's birth certificate. If anyone can locate his birth certificate, please post to this forum. Independent minds are wondering if Mr. Bashara is in this cournty illegally!

since you want to get deep the thing that I relate to most is the protection of children and their innocense. The only thing worse than a molester is their enablers.

<quoted text>The eagle of which I have no repect for states that "He was caught masturbating to pornographic images of children in the evidence room of the Adams Police Dept." so,Do you think this cop just woke up at age 45 and decided he liked little children. I doubt it. Is his family supporting him? Is he still living with his wife and children? If the answer to either question is yes I don't feel sorry for any of them. As a matter of fact I don't care what the answer is. I don't feel sorry for any of them. How long has this cop been a deviant, and how long has his family known about it?
How nice of you to attack the innocent family! No, he is NOT living with his wife and children. And YOU are a horrible human being for insinuating that his wife and children are guilty in any way, shape or form. Many a wife has been blindsided by horrible acts by the husband she thought she knew. Stop beating up the innocent and get yourself a life!

jesus, I'm glad that you have limited the title of "worst person in the [whole freaking] world" to one day. Because there are so many deserving candidates for this title. And it looks like many of them are cops. Turn on the news, there are bad cops, open the paper, there are bad cops. It doesn't look like there's a shortage of them.
