Publishing the name and address of the family was incredibly irresponsible on the part of the Dispatch. His family has enough to deal with without the fear of harassment. I happen to know that the Dispatch did not ask permission nor even warn them that the information would be published. The family is grieving. The man is dead. What more do you want? This is, of course, to say nothing of the witch-hunt the search for alleged child porn has become. Even a groundless accusation can ruin someone's life forever. Get off your high horses, people. There's a lot you don't know, and you aren't going to find the answers with your heads up your backsides.
thanks

he wasn't taken into custody. he wasnt charged. he wasn't even taken in for questioning. the warrent had no names specified. the hilliard PD had limited information regarding the investigation. The ICE has not openly declared him a suspect. Hilliard PD made a mistake in stating that he was a suspect. This is public defamation. Potential law-suit. No one knows what really was happening. period.

I have known John, that was his name you douchebags, since I was a child and he was a good man. Sadly, I think he was scared of people thinking it was true and that's why he killed himself. If he really did shoot himself. I still don't know if I believe that. He was a crusader against abuse and spent most of his life helping others. Every single one of you writing horrible, cruel things just remember that a simple web search has brought me to you and your bile, do you not think his other loved ones could end up here? If he had been a convicted molester who had admitted his crimes I would not be bothered by your judging, but he was innocent as far as anyone knows so why don't you keep him off your dirty lips. Yeah laugh it up, it's so damn funny isn't it? He left behind a lot of sad people, myself included.

No matter what you think of him or what the actual truth is, no one was convicted of anything yet. This man has a family, a wife, children. Have some compassion for them.
are you serious?? Who kills themselves over something like this, if it isn't true? Im sure most people would put up the fight to prove their innocence esp for their family. Not leave them in awe and wondering why....I feel bad for the family, I hope he didn't do his kids dirty like that but if he didn't have that problem with other kids, why not his own? He's a sick bastard and I honestly think if he was that disturbing he should've grown a pair of balls and took his prison sentence so the rest of the inmates could've raped and then eventually killed him. Did he really think he wasnt going to get caught?? They don't play nice with kiddie rapists in prison, either way he got what he deserved. Anyone making excuses for him is down right ignorant and blind. The police don't make serious accusations like that without hard evidence. They searched his house and found it in HIS house...if he didn't do anything wrong he wouldn't be so ashamed. I feel bad for the wife, all that time and she had no clue her husband was into kids...atleast I hope she didn't know. What a disgrace.

Let's axe some questions.

Who had access to his computer? How many people lived in the house? Could the cops prove he personally downloaded the stuff? Certainly it all points in his direction, but there are questions.

And, finally, if I am an adult do I have the right to have this sick material? I'm not sure it can be proven that just possessing this stuff means people will act on it.

What do you think?

Yes, it is wrong to posess kiddy porn. Whether you act on it or not is not important because CHILDREN were abused and expoloited in the making of them film. The "wants" of some does not mean the rights of children should be ignored.

And that's a very good reason. Consenting adults who are getting paid for this stuff, that's one thing, but children is quite another.

NO.@ blacksrviolent.

The FBI states that the average child molester is a WHITE male aged 29-57.

http://www.yellodyno.com/html/child_molester_...

Post some FACTS, not your racist crap.

OVER 70% of those incarcerated for Child Molestation are white males.

While nearly 70% of those serving time for violent crimes against children were white, whites accounted for 40% of those imprisoned for violent crimes against adults.

23 Apr 2011 ... The average child molester is a white male age 50 and over with a masters degree or higher. Will there be an initiative to target this group ...

And, the "average" child molester, in fact the overwhelming majority of them, are known to the victim. It's an "uncle," a neighbor, or mom's boyfriend, even sometimes a Dad, sad to say.

We need to stop worrying so much about guys walking the street in trenchcoats and more about who is next door, or even under our own roof.

Ask Childrens Services. They'll tell you.

hello. i am john callicotte. i am not comenting to barade your opinions of my father i simply feel you should know the truth. the news called and i was willing to talk but they never listen to a kid. yes my dad is guilty but thats not why he shot him self. it was so i didnt see him behind bars. even in the end he was a man of good will. he was never put into custody he had his home searched. he had his life watched. he had every keystroke recorded. then he had his life riped from him. he killed himself with a weapon in our weapon locker. the gun was his. i do not like that he is dead and i dont wish other pervs to do this. i wish them to stop befor another father, mother, brother, or anyone is riped away from those who care. the worst part is i remember the night befor i asked if he was ok and he lied right to me and said he was fine. i thank you for all your comments. i thank you for your pity and your laughter no matter the reason.i thank everyone and have no disrespect. i thank you for being honest with your opinion
