    Probably should move this to the political and current events section. This isn't movie, TV show, or media related.

    Woops, sorry. I was thinking like TMZ celebrity news gossip stuff = media.
    I heard about this awhile back but it was first presented in a way that made it seem like it was directed at someone who'd stayed with Jarod and that the seizure of the house computers was more of a formality. Maybe that was just his "story" initially.

    The more shocking revelation (to me anyways) coming out of this was that he'd actually been soliciting underage girls in person, not just in the cyber-world.
    When the hell will celebrities (kind of semi-celebrity in this case) learn that they can't have secrets in the public domain. That aspect reminds me of those ignorant celebrities who were "privately" storing naked pics of themselves on a public hosting site awhile back :noplease::lol:, and then had the nerve to blame only the hackers (who were indeed certainly criminal in their actions) and not themselves.

    Well, it's really only quite recent that this has really become the case.

    Without opening up the whole 'Fappening' debate again, no hack of that magnitude had happened prior, nor has one happened since. This suggests that either security on these devices has become seriously tight, or people have come to accept that every nude selfie is taken at risk of it becoming public property.

    As far as celebrities searching for underage sexual abuse victims is concerned ... well, people used to protect them. Look at the huge scandals surrounding both celebrities and politicians in the UK; it used to be possible to keep the public from finding out by simply paying off, discrediting, or threatening anybody that might reveal the truth. Information couldn't travel far or fast until the last ten to twenty years, which isn't enough time for an entire institution to change the methods they used to keep skeletons in the closet for decades.

    Add to that the fact that celebrities having sex with minors has been considered 'part of the package' in the past. Hell, the film Almost Famous virtually revolved around the groupie subplot, and a central point of the plot was that the main character was a teenager. Society tended not to consider you a pedophile unless you looked like a creepy old homeless guy. That perception has finally changed (now that Cosby looks like a creepy old homeless guy).

    I gotta admit, I laughed! I hope the double entendre was on purpose, as that is PURE GOLD!

    No, that's on purpose.

    And it's fvcking awful.

    (like, yes, it's crudely funny, and then I remember we're actually talking about prison rape.)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't that just someone who happened to guess an Apple ID password? That's hardly a hack of any magnitude. Even if there were some kind of "social engineering" used to get that password, that's still not something new. Edit: The only thing that made it noteworthy in any way was how blown out of proportion it got. If it hadn't been famous people nobody would have cared.

    While Apple's security is indeed terrible, it wasn't quite that easy. Let's not get back into that topic though...

    Don't disagree with how awful rape is, waaaaaay too many lives are ruined by it.

    I just got a laugh out of the heading due to the how clever it was.

    I'm still going to Subway. They are the only fast-food restaurant that let you have it your way. (Seems like something Jared would've liked.)

    Anyway, who wants to start taking bets on how long Jared lasts in prison? He is already recognizable, and word probably will get around fast (if it has not already) to inmates at wherever he is incarcerated.

    For sure, I just have trouble finding stuff funny based on some contexts any more :shrug:

    Clever? It's appealing to the lowest common denominator and is the most blatantly obvious joke someone could make about the situation.

    I admit, I chuckled when I saw that NYP page, but to joke about rape, even if you can get away with it is just bad taste.




















    Then again so is a Subway footlong
















    And so is this post..

    Try to remember that we're talking about a person that was looking to have sex with underage minors asking for "the younger the better". Add to that he had a large cache of child pornography that is usually done using children that are enslaved in a vile sex trade. I too thought, "OK, nice try at being clever" but while I have little sympathy for the guy I do also see this as a brain wiring thing, I think of it as a sickness, which is sad itself. But still, kids had to suffer for him to get his rocks off no matter how we paint it.

    Well if you're offended by that New York Post pic, there's always this one to rustle your jimmies even further...

    I feel for all the mom and pop owned Subway franchisees that will probably lose income over the company mascot.

    Agreed, estabon. Jimmy Page was banging a 14 year old, everyone in the world knew about it but no one cared-even now. To this day he's still just the rock legend, not the pedophile.

    Yeah times have indeed changed on this issue in our culture.

    I'd have to assume a good many of us (especially the older guys on here) have parents that began families when the mom was underage and the father was over, although I'm talking about only a few years difference at the most.

    I guess that's still real common even now, but it's definitely frowned upon these days. People start families later then they used to on average.

    So ... I was substitute teacher in a health class today, and the set work was to watch Supersize Me and take some notes. Guess who shows up during that 'documentary'?

    A couple of students in the class recognised the guy and knew the recent news (Jared's not really connected to Subway in Australia, so he's not well known). The fucked up part is that there's footage of him talking to a couple of teenage girls and the mother of one of the girls is talking about how much of an inspiration he is. The film really talks him up as a more wholesome representative of a company compared to fast food 'mascots'.

    Once a couple of kids got a little too freaked out by all the compliments being thrown his way, I had to actually pause the film, and explain the current events to the class. If memory serves correctly, my inspirational speech included the line: "Hey, you know how I was saying earlier how this film is a bit out of date, and was never quite as relevant to Australia as it was to the USA (we never had supersize here)? Yeah. Jared Fogle's on the update list, as he's a terrible role model. I'm not going to get too specific, but his offenses rhyme with 'shmonvicted shmedophile'. So, take that last section with a grain of salt."

    Weird day.
