Lawrence man faces charges in Missouri

April 4, 2008


A Lawrence man charged Wednesday in Douglas County with two counts of sexual exploitation of a child also faces five similar charges in Kirksville, Mo.

Adair County, Mo., prosecutors allege that the 34-year-old man distributed obscene material involving a young man performing sex acts with a boy who appears to be under the age of 14. The Missouri charges were described in a request for an arrest warrant filed Wednesday.

The suspect remains in the Douglas County Jail on $100,000 bond. He has a preliminary hearing in Douglas County on April 30.

I bet none of the people that are complaining about the use of the taser in this incident have had any formal training on how a taser works or the use of force in these situations. The journal world conveniently left out many quotes from Sheriff Barta at the press conference. Here is another scenario that could have played out. The man having a heart attack or stroke is allowed to leave the Goodyear plant. He starts driving at 75 MPH on Hwy 24 and then loses control of his vehicle due to a CVA. His vehicle then strikes another vehicle head on, killing a family of 5. The same people commenting on this story would be outraged that a man that was suffering from a life threatening illness was allowed to drive a vehicle. Wait for the autopsy reports before you judge this incident. This man was going to die from his illness on that day no matter what the actions of Law Enforcement were.
