    What a mess. You paint yourself as a hypocrite in the first paragraph. Then hint at a conspiracy in the last. Should probably sort yourself out here.

    It does seem coincidental, but conspiracies can be avoided by not flaunting one's computer skills in such a public way. We should ALL remember that ANY content containing images of anyone under 18 years of age AT THE TIME of the photo or film capture is considered ILLEGAL. RyanRocks is 21, and it isn't outside the realm of possibility that he had images and film content of people that were underage, but not necessarily children as our modern society views them. An easy way to not get caught with anything that could be incriminating, is to just stay away from it.

    That, and the whole reason that our kids can't go out on Halloween by themselves was because of those filthy bastards kidnapping a girl around Halloween night as she was walking home from a Girl Scout meeting. That happened back in the early 80's, I think. They've always been around. They probably wont ever disappear, sadly.

    Maybe.

    First time he gets accused of having child porn. Maybe they weren't sure software piracy alone was gonna be enough.

    I'm going to say it again for the people in the back.

    He pled guilty to possession of child porn. He never even argued that it was planted. There's no reason to believe it was planted.

    Is it so hard to believe that this man who repeatedly ignored warnings for doing illegal things online ALSO was in possession of child porn? Especially when there is no evidence (or even an argument stated in court) to the contrary?

    Well, it doesn't matter if it's hard to believe (it's not) because he pled guilty to it. I don't understand why anyone would think it's a conspiracy when there's not a single indication that it was.

    Looks like the FBI got a hacker and pedo 2 for 1 special with this kid, probably rolled over on everyone he's ever had connections with.

    It's amazing seeing multiple people hoping this guy either gets raped in prison or killed (or both). I literally cannot think of another class of crime that gets this sort of lynch mob to gather. Poisoning the water supply for profit? Nope. Beating the elderly? Probably not. Mass-killing spree? Not even close. But just breathe the word pedophile (not even child molester, mind you!) and you get a swarm of people all gleefully cheering for the offender to be violently raped and/or killed. It reminds me of the bad old days, when people used to gather in the town square with the family to enjoy hangings and lynchings.

    If he were to be raped and/or murder, then he would be the only person directly involved in this case to be physically harmed. Unless he produced those images/videos himself, which we can assume he didn't given that he wasn't charged with any such counts, then he didn't so much as touch a child. There are people who actually do abuse children to produce those images. If you want to see people who possess the images/videos raped and/or killed, then what exactly are we supposed to threaten the actual abusers with? At that point, why would this guy even bother to restrain himself? He'd be killed for it anyway, might as well go abuse an actual kid, right? That's the kind of incentive system that you'd be setting up.

    That being said, I am highly surprised that he only got 3 years. Usually US prison sentences are extremely punitive, especially where child pornography charges are concerned. A while back I saw a case where a guy got 30 years for possessing a similar amount of child pornography, I believe it was 6 counts that gave 5 years each. Shortly thereafter I saw a case where a guy got 25 years for violently raping a 5 year old. Makes sense, right?

    It's not him doing the leaking, but I think it's believed that he was the source of a lot of it.

    One more vote against the conspiracy theorists, this guy was known for chatting up underage kids on discord.

    Have you talked to him before? He's extremely creepy and constantly hits on kids. It was well known even before the arrest but a lot of people thought it was just a tastless joke. I have plenty of screenshots to back this up, and not pedo related but the first time I heard him talk he answered the call by screaming the n word.

    3 years? This dude had tons of cp and only gets 3 years....
    Oh well, you know what they do to those scumbags in prison, so I guess it's gonna feel like 3 decades for him.

    What a fool!
    They warn him, he hacks into Nintendo's servers anyway and brags about it on social media????
    And when the FBI confiscates his Hard Drive in order to investigate his bragging they find a truck load of child porn????????????
    He's smart and stupid at the same time.

    While I never wish ill to happen to anyone I can see where people are coming from. Pedophilia is a exploitative fetish and people who indulge in it rarely recover. Even if they recover, the trust is forever ruined. It doesn't help that many Pedo's been trying to rebrand Pedophilia as a sexuality in recent years (with no success obviously) so the topic is heated from the get go.

    I don't hope he gets murdered or raped. I don't even want it to happen, but I think what goes around comes around. It's common knowledge at this point pedophiles in prison is like putting a chick in a fox den. However I do wish he got more time behind bars, as he obviously doesn't show any remorse for his actions.

    Oh, I can certainly see where they're coming from, it just disappoints me. Interestingly, so far as I know based on current research*, it really is akin to a sexuality. It's kind of similar to being gay: you're just born like that (although you can also become a pedophile from being molested yourself as a child iirc). Obviously it can't be treated the same way that being gay is treated due to the innate harm that actually practicing it causes, but it isn't really accurate to call it a fetish. I guess what I'm saying is that pedophiles shouldn't be hated simply for existing. It's when they cross the line and become child molesters, doing real harm to people, that they deserve opprobrium. That line was certainly crossed in this case.

    *I am a year or two out of date on that now, so the current consensus may have changed since then.

    I honestly do agree, self awareness is the first step to improvement, and while I don't hate them if they are trying to get rid of these thoughts and become a better person, I do think it's understandable if people want to distance themselves from them, or not associate with them at all.

    I'm assume once that guy is out of jail, he will start hacking Nintendo again.
