    Coach Falsely Accused

    I don't know if any of you followed this story. A coach had a video on his cell phone of his small children playing after their bath; they were naked. A coworker saw a naked child in the photos section of the man's phone and reported him to the police. He was arrested, charged with possession of child pornography, fired from his job, and had to spend thousands of dollars on legal fees to defend himself. He was ostracized, vilified, and had to wait several months for the trial that exonerated him.

    He may have been found innocent, but the emotional and monetary toll were tremendous. I can't imagine a worse scenario for an innocent man...

    Lack of common sense, lack of anyone willing to make a judgment call, and fostering a culture of "informing" when anything you see might be "disturbing."

    Par for course.

    How something like this could have gone so far is just plain pathetic. There are a lot of weak people that are not up to the responsibilities their stations require.

    When it comes to any accusations of child porn or child abuse the person is immediately guilty until bankrupted and proven innocent.
