Problem is he already admitted it according to news release, so while it is possible for someone to run through your wireless router and it appear that you are downloading kiddie porn, that does not appear to be the case here. Good looking out tho, you gonna be his attorney?

Wow the FBI had to do the WPD job, this guy has been getting away with this type of behavior for along time, and what is puzzling the principal and other teachers had no clue what so ever, about this teachers being abscess with little boys, i am pretty sure at least one of these other teacher knew what this teacher was doing, and said nothing, i wonder if the FBI could reopen the Brett Pedroia case, if this guy is getting prison time, Mr Pedroia should to, GREAT JOB FBI.

The story was pretty clear that this pervert was doing what he was doing from his home so I do not see how the principal or other teachers could have known what he was doing. Also, the story pretty clearly points out that he was caught by the FBI through agents that troll the sick websites that these predators use to communicate with each other...I do not think the WPD, or any other city, has the resources to monitor such things...I do agree with you last point, Good job by the FBI.

THANK YOU to WJUSD for FINALLY DOING SOMETHING RIGHT and calling parents to notify of this situation immediately - other situations (no water at plainfield, pedophile stalking schoolgirls) have had a very delayed response from WJUSD, but this time they got it right.

Please continue to keep us parents informed about issues that affect the safety of our children. While I appreciate the Daily Democrat's coverage, I should not have to rely entirely on it.

Why does jim delete post that are not offensive?
Hey Dumba**, you may as well leave your name the same as all three consecutive posts are obviously from you. As a matter of fact, why didn't you just put all of your nonsense into one post.
Idiot.

This is so sad and shocking. My fear is that victims will start to come forward. He was looking at sick pictures at home (12000 of them!) and was surrounded by young males all day. It seems probable that he would be acting out somehow. Please please let me be wrong.

The Woodland residents have every right to be over protective of what happens in this town. We are paying more than just a dime in Property Tax and Sales Tax; we have the right to make sure that we don't get stuck with Corrupt Politicians.
The highest paid department head in the city is also the person responsible for keeping our town clean from gangs, drugs, thugs and child predators. Yet the city manager and city council continue to ignore the pleas of the officers at WPD for a new chief. Until we actually get a person in that office that is deserving of the six figure salary we pay in taxes, then we are going to have to watch out for ourselves.

Lowlife scumbags know exactly where they are not welcome, and where they will be spotted immediately and caught, and where they stand out like a sore thumb.

They also know where there are many others like themselves where they are more able to blend in or not be watched so closely. The more lowlife we get, the me we become desensitized, the more we will read about innocent victims.

Woodland has a HUGE meth problem. With meth comes porn addiction and other forms of sexual deviance, often involving children because they are more easily controlled and manipulated. If you want a nice town without hundreds of perverts, then tell your mayor and city manager you want a police chief that is more proactive, respected and effective. This one has had 10 years to prove himself and that's 5 years too long. just ask the officer who voted "no confidence" ...twice!

Amen to that! My son spent many of days with him and other boys from his soccer team....... this is very disturbing. I know his team is blown away by this. I can only begin to imagine how violated they must feel.

To anyone who might have some evidence please contact the Woodland Police Dept. This would help to put this predator behind bars for a long time. We don't want him back into our community.

Let hope he gets help for his sickness and that none of his students were involved in any way. I know how much he touched the hearts of his students. My son was at Douglass last year and says the same about Mr. Tomsett.
