Pedophiles go were the children are. Whether it be schools, churches or scouts. And I ask, what is the difference between a gay scout of boys and a heterosexual male scout leader of girls?

Its scary to know that this was my teacher a few years ago. He was always a little off, and me being a female this gives me the chills to know that kids should trust this man and he is a pedophile. And to know that this is the 2nd teacher in Orange County to get arrested in the last month is just ridiculous.

Can't go to school, can't go to church, can't trust strangers, no wonder parents are so paranoid these days.

Kobman was employed as a Technology Education teacher by the Orange County Schools System

don't he know there's a task force committed to monitoring IPs to CP sites 24/7?

Obviously, you truly are in the 1950's era. Being gay does not make you a pedophile. You made quite an ignorant statement.

He was my 6th grade teacher. I was 11 or 12 at the time. We always watched videos of him when he was on Jeopardy before he was a teacher. Im a senior now at Orange County High School, and he has always been a weird man and now I see why. And I feel so sorry for his students he had because this is a scary thought.

Really? You think all gay people are pedophiles? The idiocy of your comment is astounding. But I bet you also think you're a REAL Christian with that nonsense too...

some of you obviously are misunderstanding 1950era's comment. Read it nice and slow and think about it. Its not stating that gays are pedophiles. Its almost like a riddle, c'mon you can figure it out.

What a slim ball. He needs to stay in jail. If you can't trust that your children are safe in school and church then they're not safe anywhere. These are the two place you should never have to worry about their safety from these creeps.

Shame on LGMS, LGES as well as the county of orange as well as all teachers and faculty that have know about this since the 19th and have just come forward today. Perhaps you can put all the child porn freaks in the school you are not using and keep everyone else in an institution that respects the innocence of children.

People at the school didn't find out until yesterday. Don't make statements you know nothing about.

Really this is the 2nd time in less than 2 wks that there has been a teacher arrested from this school. My son goes to this school very disappointed to find out that a search warrant was issued on May 19 and they are just now arresting him and telling the parents today. Here we been sending our kids to school every day since this happpened Very disappointed to see that the Orange Co school system does not do a very good job doing back ground checks on their teachers!!!

Going after the fool who downloads this stuff is one thing, they need to go after the jerks who post this stuff on the web. Then shoot the people who exploit the minors who are exploited for this.

Do NOT blame the school system for this individual's transgressions. Do you HONESTLY believe that if the administration had known about this, he would have still been employeed?? Parents who make comments to the effect that some of you have made, are probably the very ones who think your children do no wrong. I have been in the schools, I have seen your children...trust me, some of you have some work to do AT HOME!!! Yes, this man should be (and is) in jail! I am sure he would have been long ago, had the "powers that be" known what he was doing! Stop with the "SHAME ON THE SCHOOL" comments! Try a reality check!!
