Researcher at Alberta university jailed for child porn

This is the calibre of people in our universities, influencing future generations ...

A British researcher with the University of Lethbridge has been sentenced to 15 months in an English jail ... Robin Phillips pleaded guilty last month to four charges including taking indecent images of children and possessing indecent images of children. Phillips is a British astrophysicist who worked as manager of a research project in Lethbridge.

No doubt this low-life was highly-paid for his "research"... courtesy Canadian taxpayers. And yet said taxpayers quietly fork over their hard-earned dollars, with barely a whimper much less a demand for some sort of accountability. Is that apathy, complacency, or both?

Story here.

Perhaps you should refrain from commenting on cases outside of your acquaintance.

This may come a surprise to you, but freedom of speech is a fundamental human right, and is protected by law in Canada.

How dare you come onto my blog under the cloak of anonymity and presume to tell me what to say or not to say here.

If I was wrong about my assumptions, why don't you offer some edification and share your knowledge and expertise?

If you don't want to do that, then perhaps you should refrain from commenting on this blog.

This is a discussion forum, and your anonymous comment is hardly conducive to launching a civil discussion.
