How About the ONE Picture?

Gumshoe was thoroughly disgusted with the abject ignorance (hopefully not willful) of the “Honorable” Ketanji Brown Jackson during her recent senate vetting for the US Supreme Court.

Mind you gentle readers that she appears to Gumshoe to be a very polite, well-poised, highly educated, and intelligent as well a very accomplished woman.

Hurray for her!

Okay, she is definitely a liberal darling of the progressives who worship at the altar of “restorative justice” (criminals win while victims lose).  This does not enrage Gumshoe in the least bit.  The ACLU applauds.  Far-left Democratic gush.  God will have the final say.

Her very cavalier attitude and “slap on the wrist” sentencing of convicted suspects who possessed child pornography definitely turns Gumshoe’s stomach.  Vomit alert! Judge Jackson considers her personal sentencing guidelines (methodology) of these convicted suspects that are based upon the “quantity” of the child pornography possessed by these “perverts” (Gumshoe’s term).

Really Your Honor?

She bases her (misguided) reasoning upon the ease with which these suspects can obtain such filth through today’s internet.

Note:  In the old days, before the internet, this trash was delivered via the US Mail in a plain brown envelope to the perverts’ abode. (Troglodyte cave)

The judge thinks that just “a little” of this pornographic poison is okay.  Just a “harmless” collection for the socially inhibited.  Give Gumshoe a break! “How about a little fire scarecrow?”

B.S.!  Unbelievable!  In police terms, she is definitely “HUA” (head up @**) in Gumshoe’s opinion.

Gumshoe worked as a sheriff detective in a “Special Investigations Unit” (SIU) for over five years.  The majority of Gumshoe’s heavy caseload dealt exclusively with pedophiles and their numerous child and infant victims.  A very demanding and heart-wrenching (and if you let it, soul-killing) life experience.

In Gumshoe’s casework that included the execution of search warrants; suspect interrogations; victim interviews; direct physical evidence and courtroom testimony, there were NO exceptions. NOT even one – each of these arrested (and later convicted) suspects possessed child pornography in some form.

Some in small or in large quantities consisting of private child porn libraries of videos (some documenting the pervert’s heinous crimes during the time of the child abuses; the child molests and child rapes).

Disgusting beyond description folks.   Something’s you can’t un-see that will forever haunt your dreams.  “Pax Tecum” is Gumshoe’s quiet prayer. CDs; scrapbooks; magazines and even, occasionally, a victim souvenir to occupy the pervert’s sick fantasies between victims. These materials were also used to “groom” the targeted victim or victims by the suspect. Pedophile 101 for further victim conditioning.  A perverts “tool of the trade”.

Gumshoe’s Personal Case File:  Pedophiles (who act out) never stop and they do not rehabilitate.  Child porn fuels them.  Period.  End of story.

To think that mere possession of a “small” quantity of child pornography is not serious is “stinking thinking” by this “Honorable” jurist.

Gumshoe suggests that Judge Jackson think about just ONE picture—the VICTIM? How about the “quantity” of the all too many victims and the “quality” of their shattered lives and damaged souls.

Gumshoe will never forget these innocent and helpless kids.

Damn the child pornographers and their ilk!

Please pray for the victims and for the judge to recognize the inherent evil of possession of child pornography. ONE picture is too many!

Coram Deo.

  1. Hey Gumshoe, good to see you back in print. When Judge Jackson was nominated to the US Supreme Court I said to myself, one liberal judge replacing another liberal judge so what? I decided to watch the hearings anyway. Republicans please play nice in the sandbox, she will get appointed no matter how hard you try to prevent it. Pedophiles have no redeeming souls, they will never be reformed, they need to be in jail forever. The judge had the opportunity to make sure that those convicted of that awful crime could at least spend the maximum time in prison as allowed by law. She chose not to and tried to defend her decisions. Those who have served in law enforcement know that judges have discretion in handing down sentences. Yes they do get pre sentence reports, recommendations from the DA and from probation officers as well. When it comes to pedophiles and child porn the only recommendation should be a maximum sentence. BTW pedophiles have a very hard time in prison. Believe it or not even the convicts have a code of honor when it comes to those individuals.
    This is the one crime that destroys the lives of children. These criminals prey on children and with the internet distribute their vile product to others to further their illicit criminal activity. I wonder how the judge or anyone sitting in that hearing trying to defend her reasoning for handing down those sentences would feel if that crime came to their house?
    So thanks for a great article.

    • Thanks my brother-in-blue for your right on perspective. Pedophiles never rehabilitate. They are always put into protective custody while they are incarcerated. Yes, even convicted felons have a standard.

  2. Sometimes it’s hard to understand why people are recognized or put into places, or positions as they are. In this case, I would pray that this judge not make it to the Supreme Court, but if so, then what’s the old saying, you “Reap what you sow” an old saying that ells us we can e expect bad things to come out of our evil deeds or action. This proverb or quote simply says that future repercussions are unavoidably determined or shaped by our actions.” In this case: we can expect poor judgement….

    • It takes a judge of strong moral character along with an ethical backbone to make “just” decisions and to not be playing to the leftest crowd. In the end as stated in the article Linnie, God will have the final day; His justice will be perfect for all sinners. Gumshoe included! Thanks for your response.

  3. Okay bro Gumshoe (I’ll try this post again – was deleted the first time – geesh!) I agree with your disgust re child porn. The lower-than-guidelines sentencing by the judge says a lot about her; regardless of her education and abilities. Your years of work in law enforcement and, in particular, with sexual predators, has no doubt sharpened your perspective on crimes of this nature. Thank you for your service! As a Christian I believe what the Bible says in regard to repentance and salvation — there is absolutely no one beyond redemption, and no one who comes to God with a sincere heart, relying on the Blood for Christ for forgiveness, will be turned away by God. These crimes against the young are especially heinous, and the perpetrators are very fortunate it is God (and not folks like me) who gauges the sincerity of their hearts when it comes to forgiveness. God’s grace is simply beyond our comprehension… is – as the old hymn says – amazing that He would save a wretch like me.

    • Good biblical insight bro. The Bible also states that God will allow their hearts to harden. Yes, no one is beyond redemption, even Judas if he would have sought forgiveness rather than “hang around”.
