  • There are pedophiles who don't offend. I was listening to a podcast with a man who was a self admitted pedophile but wouldn't even so much as seek out cp because he knew it was wrong. Those are the afflicted people I feel sorry for. The second you download even one image or video of a child, you are a criminal and do not deserve the life you've been given.
    This person had 50,000 images and hundreds of videos of toddlers and children younger than 5 years old. This world is better without him and he knew it. I only feel sorry for the family he left behind who now has to deal with his perversions and his death, but I don't feel a shred of sympathy for him.

  • Ethical suicide is what I call it.

    In this situation, there are a few options and suicide really isn't the worst of them (but it's not the best either).

    On the plus side: Can't reoffend. Cost efficient for society. People have no need to fear this particular person. People who get distracted by hate of the individual start to consider the triggers of the crime instead (because kicking a corpse around feels futile for most).

    On the negative side: Added family trauma, Collateral suicides: could potentially inspire people with pedophilic thoughts (but guilty of no crime) to follow suit rather than get treatment. Like the death penalty it also helps slightly to erode the idea that basic human value is sacrosanct.
    Also, by doing this he erradicated every possibility of, in the future, ever be something more than his crime.

    That said, I respect the decision. It's not a crime at least, and there are a few positives. Sure, I respect offenders that give themselves to treatment more, but this is at least not the worst option.

    (I guess I should never become a mental health worker)

  • Good riddance!
    Sorry... I don't relish in people's deaths... but one less pedophile out there. He had 600 videos of child molestation! And so many pictures! He was a disgusting, worthless roach who took the easy way out because he knew what was waiting for him in prison!

    • Anyone who can't respect someone who out of sorroe for what they had done (in this case being found out) should punched in the face. This guy had a family and friends that got destroyed from the events that occured and then everyone says good riddance? Sick. Child porn isn't okay but neither is relishing in the fact he took his own life.

    • @skel47 I literally didn't relish... Nice to know you can't think of any word but the one I mentioned to describe what I'm actually not doing.
      Sounds to me like you're a pedophile sympathizer... if not something worse...

      Nice to know you CAN view him separate from his horrid offenses. I'm guessing you don't believe in people

    • being actually responsible for their actions, you don't believe in their actions speaking to exactly who they are either then?

      So a serial killer might not have been a bad guy, right? He just happened to kill 100 people... But hey, who hasn't made mistakes?

      Your logic is anything but logical. You're an idiot in a true sense of the word. Congratulations.

  • I am in no way of supporting his criminal acts since, as a pedophile as a future parent, I am already concerned about my own kids. I was not a fan of him, even though I liked the series Glee and his character development for the first two or three seasons, as I generally don't really feel connection to an actor/actress outside their roles.

    However, it is tragic that someone does not see any way out except suicide. Suicide and suicidal thoughts are not something to make fun of. Even a rapist. Have some compassion at least for his family. Comments like "He did a favor to the world" , "Die fuckwit", "Good riddance" are kind of very rude and thoughtless. I am not happy that he committed suicide without getting his punishment on this earth, neither am i happy that he died as i am sure a mom's heart is broken no matter what her kid turned out.

    I believe (and it is obvious) that it is cowardice to commit suicide so that you don't suffer from the consequences of your own actions whether perverted like his or not, as they were/are harming others. Therefore, for these kinds of criminals pedos, rapists etc., who may commit suicide to not face their sentencing, I think there should be a general surveillance or watch on them to prevent them from escaping from justice through suicide. If that kind of offer comes from the government putting these people who already plead guilty on watch, I'd be supporting.

  • I don't believe he did it out of any genuine regret over what he had done (50,000 images of child porn is hardly a mistake or 'error in judgement' as it's being framed by his defendant), I believe it was out of fear of facing justice in prison, especially knowing what people in prison may do to someone like him, even though the estimated 4 - 7 years was ridiculously light in my opinion. I feel sorry for his family that they're going through this too but I feel no remorse or pity for him.

  • He got off on children being exploited mostly 5yrs and under, that's sick good riddance i don't feel bad for him one bit. His suicide was doubtfully out of genuine guilt, just a escape from the consequences and shame from bring exposed. I only feel bad for his family can't imagine the mixed emotions they are left with.

  • Stupid. I'd feel bad if he did it because he was depressed or sad. But he only did to get out of going to jail which is pathetic. That and he didn't actually want to be found guilty and sentenced. He wanted to die clean of actually being charged

  • I'm not sure how to feel about it. Suicide is awful and I am uncomfortable celebrating someone's suicide as suicidal people often unjustly believe that they deserve it. But, at the same time he participated in the sexual abuse of children even if he never actively hurt one. And my gut reaction is to wish child abusers dead. I'm not really sure how to think.

  • I think it’s sad whenever anyone commits suicide but most of me feels like he was a massive coward, he took the easy way out for the crime he committed instead of going to jail, he hasn’t given the children he kept pictures of any justice that they deserve

  • I wish he served his time in prison. I think it's sad that he killed himself but he was still a paedophile. I'm more sad about how he died as opposed to him actually being dead. 1 less paedophile in the world but still someone lost a son.

    • Well at least that son can't pay to have other people's sons/daughters raped for their sexual satisfaction.

  • I won’t mourn someone who had child porn. He was sick and the world is a much better place without him.

    • So by your logic gay people need to die too? Good on you OP you have a really smart brain. Its a keeper.

    • Show All
    • @rsstanford No, people are not born gays, they become gays due to circumstances. Read about newest research in this sphere and educate yourself.

    • Its really not tbh. Your thinking that because of social norms and stigmas. They are both illogical atrractions and miswiring of the brain.

  • Days ago someone posted anonymously that they had child porno and it was all out there.

    They said they are seeing someone and that he believes she might be disgusted and he doesn't want to lose her.

    What of that anon was this guy?

  • He's a pedophile, he had child pornography and knew he got caught, so he didn't want to go prison, but one way or another, he probably would of died in prison if he didn't kill himself, someone would of killed him.

  • The guy was mentally ill and got found out and took a reasonable out to avoid the social stigma and possible being harmed or killed in jail. I wish we could deal with mental illness better and not incarcerate or humiliate people that are sick. I don't think people try to be socially out of balance you are born this way and we don't have good diagnosis or treatment.

  • Never watched Glee, don't know who he is. Generally speaking, it's a sad thing and the person has more to offer and is loved more than they realize. That said, I can think of several people who I'd like to see off themselves and make this world a better place.

  • While I find suicide to be very sad, on the scale of my sympathy towards those who commit suicide, he and people like him are at the very bottom of the list. The only reason he's not at the absolute bottom is that he didn't actively abuse children. However, he definitely helped promote it and created the demand for the materials resulting from child abuse. Is the world at least a slightly better place? Absolutely.

    I kinda feel sorry for his family though, assuming they didn't know about his crimes. He has have his it well from them. I don't know.

    • Show All
    • Obviously someone in the world dies and obviously someone is sad because of that death

    • @-Beonkia i still stated facts

  • Not condoning his actions by no means but being a porn addict I do understand the slippery road he was on. I myself thought about killing myself in the depths of my problem. Even though I never reached the depths this man reached I do feel sorry for him in the terms that he didn't reach out for help before he broke the law. If people would truly understand the dangers of porn it would help make some seek help sooner.

    I ask anyone who thinks or feels like porn has impacted their lives negatively to seek out help now. You are all better people than you think you are.

    • Its not porn its cp big fucking difference

    • Porn is porn. It effects the brain the same way.

    • If you want to get technical, studies have shown that porn addicts slowly look at more extreme porn when their tolerance to normal porn increases. Inversely as an addict quits, their attraction for the content in that extreme porn decreases. Now obviously this isn't an absolute truth in every situation. But it is true in the vast majority.

  • If he didn't do it im sure someone in prison would have. Probably better that way.
