To perve :Cop busted for producing obscene material with dog
January 17, 2017 ~ deborahleejarrett
“A Harris County sheriff’s deputy is out of a job after a shocking allegation and an obscenity charge, authorities said on Monday.
“The allegation involves production of obscene material that includes sexual contact with a dog,” said Dane Schiller, a spokesman for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
Andrew Sustaita Jr., a six-year veteran of the force, was relieved of duty after his arrest for the state jail felony, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Sustaita, who was most recently assigned to the Crime Control Division, was identified as a suspect after investigators found out about obscene online material coming from an account based in Harris County. ”
“The Sheriff’s Office’s High Tech Crime Unit investigated the case and determined that Sustaita was allegedly involved in producing the obscene online material.
“The possession of obscene and illicit material is made even more troubling when a Sheriff’s Office employee is found to be involved,” Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a statement.”
“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” - Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
