E.miller , busted for porn

We have been here before. To say that the very agency, the GPD (state level) would have no interest in charging the very person that they reported to begin with makes no sense at all. With respect to charging state offenses while there is a parallel federal action ongoing, well, I think I have covered that as well. As for Robbie Morgan, you are wrong again. He could not go to another county (or state for that matter) and become a police officer. Here is why: Police must be certified by the Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission (POST). One requirement of POST is quite clear, it states that a candidate for certification can not have been convicted of or pleaded guilty to or entered a plea of nolo contendere to any felony charge or to any violation of any federal or state laws or city ordinances relating to force, violence, theft, dishonesty, gambling, liquor or controlled substances. See that? Morgan plead guilty to a federal charge under Section 1983 (the deprivation of rights under color of law section) which is a federal offense that without question falls into the category above (dishonesty/ implied force). There is also what is known as a "moral turpitude" requisite for certification that his charge would certainly violate. But they would never get to this, as his guilty plea would be dispositive. You don't trust the government, and hell, I don't blame you. However, you are looking to create a conspiracy where none exists.  (Aug 20, 2013 | post #123)

He wouldn't be convicted in state court at the same time for the same charge he is facing federally. So that situation isn't possible. You are correct in the sense that prior state convictions can enhance your sentence in federal court, but you wouldn't face charges in both courts for the same crime, especially after a disposition (verdict, plea,etc) is rendered in one court for the same offense. For example, he couldn't be found guilty of possession of child pornography in state court while under indictment for the federal offense of possession of child pornography arising from the same set of circumstances. If that were to happen, the guilty finding in the state court for the state charge would bar federal prosecution. You follow?  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #117)

No, no, no. Not what I said at all. ONE MO' 'GAIN....The feds are obviously taking the case, evident by the fact that a complaint (charging document similar to a state warrant) was taken out against him in the first place. This was done by the FBI, you can read the complaint online. To charge him with state offenses (throw the book at him, as you say) in light of that fact would be moot, as he is already charged federally. In the extremely unlikely event that the feds chose not to prosecute him, for whatever reason, the state has reserved the right to charge him in state court for any offenses that he committed. To charge at both the state and federal levels at this point would do nothing at all to enhance his potential punishment. To the contrary, it would actually slow the process considerably. You with me now?  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #112)

Soooo, what you are saying is that before the feds picked up the charge, the state charges (had they been levied in the first place) would be dropped. What a novel legal theory...seems similar though, where have I heard that before? Now I remember, post #106, third sentence. Of course it would be to the discretion of the DA in state court or the US Atty in federal court, that should have been inferred. Keen eye for detail, champ.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #111)

More important things to do than give information (assuming you actually had any) that could protect potential victims, possibly children, in the future? Snitches aren't the problem in this county, it's people like you who stand by and do nothing; afraid of their own shadow. Luckily the officer who made the discovery had some testicular fortitude and reported it as he should instead of being afraid of being labeled a snitch or "killed in his sleep". Personally I would rather be CALLED a snitch than BE a coward. I stand by my original assessment of you, with one exception, you are a liar AND a coward.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #107)

I'm not ignoring any potential charges. That seems to be the part you don't understand. If Miller was charged with a state offense, it would be dismissed in state court before the federal charges FOR THE SAME CRIME would be picked up. I think reporting the crime to the FBI in the first damn place shows that there is no tolerance for such behavior.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #106)

Interesting. You didn't know about Miller, yet you claim to know of others doing far worse. Your claims likely have no merit. In the alternative, if what you say is true, having actual knowledge of such atrocities and failing to report them to the appropriate authorities carries some degree of culpability. Either theory casts a negative light on your character. Either you are a liar or a coward.  (Aug 19, 2013 | post #92)

It isn't an issue of double jeopardy, the state and federal system would not charge the same crime from the same nucleus of operant facts. He could have been charged with possession (state level) and also with the federal interstate crime. The likelihood of charging a lesser included state offense separately than the federal offense is fairly small, but I suppose it would have been possible. Either way, they (GPD) did exactly as they should have in this case (which you and I appear to agree on).  (Aug 18, 2013 | post #86)

Assignment logs are maintained by the department. What makes you think it was a lie? The answer to your question is rather simple. Per the Supremacy Clause, Federal charges preclude state charges of the same character. Essentially, charging him with a federal offense precludes him from being charged with the same state offense. Moreover, the FBI was brought in by the GPD, as was appropriate. Wouldn't you think that was the appropriate action? Allowing the FBI to prosecute Miller assured transparency. I don't understand the logic of your argument. You are complaining that the charging of Miller was not done by the very agency you claim to not trust.  (Aug 18, 2013 | post #84)

I don't think that the Chief's statement in any way suggests that knew about Miller prior to this discovery. In fact, the swiftness in which the investigation culminated in the termination and arrest of Miller suggests just the opposite. Miller was auxiliary, and as such, it would be easy to know whether or not he was assigned to a school. However, ball games may have been a different story. The problem here lies with the deviant behavior of people like Miller. There simply is no formulaic approach to identify these people with certainty until after the fact. Imagine how many of these people you probably know, or at least think you know. I would not suggest that the local government is flawless, but in this case the blame lies with Miller alone.  (Aug 18, 2013 | post #79)

One fact that seems to be getting lost in this is that the right thing was done by the GPD. Once the egregious material was discovered on the computer, the officer appropriately reported it to his chain of command. The supervisor, in turn, did as he should by reporting it to the FBI. What Miller did was despicable beyond words, there is no doubt about that. However, the entire police force should not be indicted based upon his acts. In fact, at least some confidence in the GPD should be gained as a result of the way they handled the situation.  (Aug 18, 2013 | post #76)

Newport mother names child Messiah

I cannot fathom what would possess a judge to believe that any part of her judicial position gave her the right to alter a person's name based on her preference. However, If we are going to allow this, lets set some guidelines. Why stop at renaming a child? In fact, let all judges change the names of anyone who comes before them in court, that way judges could at least show some originality. It may even make their job a bit more simple: Bob Jones: Good morning, Your Honor. Judge: Good morning, I see you are back in my courtroom. Henceforth, Bob, your name will be TheAssholefromLast Tuesday Jones. You may proceed...  (Aug 13, 2013 | post #67)

Mosheim School pickup is a joke

Do you not realize the generalizations you just made? 1.) Bus drivers are maniacs. 2.) Kids raised by daycare become disrespectful idiots. How exactly does a five year old "hold her own"?  (Aug 13, 2013 | post #14)

Who cares,really? If they enjoy it and it entertains them, who are they harming? Your public execution of the English language is far more offensive. Check it out: . <----- This little guy here is called a period, he goes in between sentences to separate complete thoughts. ' <----- Here we have a comma. Another useful tool for distinguishing thoughts. It's also pretty handy when listing the items you probably buy every day at the grocery store, such as Coleman fuel, paint thinner, Sudefed, matches, and batteries. See how that works? Hope that helps.  (Aug 6, 2013 | post #3)
