federal agent

LIVINGSTON, IL (KTVI)– A follow up to a story you saw only on Fox, federal prosecutors have brought child pornography charges against Robert Godsey.

Federal agents used a school yard in Livingston, Illinois Thursday to launch a raid on Godsey’s home, about three miles away.

Prosecutors say Godsey had about 600 videos and more than 1,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

    To hell with the official story. They need Black Hawk choppers to arrest a pervert?? No they don’t. This was a “show of power” from the out-of-control Obummer Marxist Regime.

    • Anita Handle

      You beat me to the punch. That’s exactly what happened – not “a home-grown terrorist returning from Iraq or Afghanistan” as the marxist-tards, who hate the military, are fond of saying. I feel sorry for our guys that are forced to dance in Obama’s dog and pony show.

        Anita, we “Marxist-tards” hate the military because it’s “big government waste”. The biggest waste of all!

        Gee, aren’t you conserva-tards against “big government waste”? Oh, that’s right, you’re hypocrites and are only against “big government waste” when it doesn’t get into YOUR pocketbook. Chances are some of our military waste gets into your wallet, which means if you profit from our military budget, likely you have no detectable skills or talents to do anything else actually useful for a living.

        “Big government waste” is only bad when it goes to poor black people, right?

        To therealbyebye2theimmoralrite, that was about the dumbest thing ive read all day. Nowhere did Anita Handle say anything about, “poor black people” and there was no reason for you to say that. You are pushing a racial agenda on someone, implying that they are racist, that not once said anything of the sort. So, in turn, really what you just did was Creat a problem that did not exist And fueling the fire on the issue as a whole instead of figuring a way to help mitigate it.

        As for your comment about the military. Why not just get rid of the whole military if that’s the case? If the military is so bad and cases so much spending like you said, then it should not be a problem. It isn’t like some other Country wouldn’t love to just come in here and take over. Maybe even have there way with… I dont know… you. Take your stuff and force you out of your home.

        If it were to come to something like that, would you be willing to fight and protect your freedom? The military makes up less than one percent of the U.S. population. I’ll agree we do spend a lot on the military. However, are you willing to become a third world country where noone has rights or a say in anything the government does just to save some money? Then by all means, find somewhere else to live. Just remember though, that “bad” military you speak of, protects your right to burn the flag if you so desired to.

    The perv could claim that his pictures were just part of the school’s curriculum. How could anyone tell the difference? How you seen some of the educational material in elementary schools?

  • skepticalone

    Ya….helicopters..border patrol…for child porn? Throwing out the bulls hit flag on this one.

  • Rusty shackleford

    This might have been a test to see if the police state/ martial law would be meet with any resistance.. They figured out Livingston is filled with chicken sht cops
    And citizens now it’s ripe for the taking.

  • Antonio

    Ummm, was the chopper really necessary? Seems like police used this raid (for something society almost universally despises) to play with their military toys at taxpayer expense.

  • Wardell Hawkins

    Seems to me they just used a helicopter to bring in some federal agents. They landed 3miles away. Maybe that was just a better option than the airport. And with 600 videos it probably had international implications. This has nothing to do with Obama and Rusty where exactly are swat raids up 70%. I bet you’re one of those conspiracy theorists.

    • Rocco

      Wardell, does all that naivete help you sleep at night? Happy with your “hope and change,” are you? SWAT raids are up exponentially in recent years and yes, that includes your Dear Leaders regime. Do a Google search about SWAT raids on the rise or some such.

        Excellent post, but you don’t really expect your FACTS about our current police state to go over here with the brainwashed legions of the pathetically naïve and ignorant right-wing and religious conservatives, do you?

        Our police state is not a problem! It’s dirty pics ruining our nation! Better our dogs get killed, our children get burned, and young girls get raped by priests, than allow someone to smoke pot or look at a dirty pic!! LOL

      • Rocco

        @TheREALByeBye2TheImmoralRite — I think you’re totally missing the fact that it’s the Obama-junkies and liberals who are ostensibly and ostentatiously “A-OK” with the police state — partially because liberals are now deranged enthralled servile thralls to their corrupted ruling-class leftist “heroes,” and partly because, as long as the gestapo tactics occur under the regime of their Dear Leader, then liberals will go back and forth and adopt schizoid tendencies to stay “on board” with their Dear Leader no matter what. They’re like enthralled brainwashed members of a cult.

        See my “hope and change” comment above? “Liberal” these days is nearly 180 degrees out-of-phase with “libertarian.”

  • Rocco

    A show of force. Like using a bazooka to kill a cockroach. But hey! — they got the cockroach! Isn’t that all that matters? A Black Hawk helicopter, for crying out loud? Why not just send in an armored division to roll a neighborhood whenever they apprehend any perp? They use less materiel and personnel to arrest mass murderers. Pardon me if I call this “official story” as the BS it clearly is.

  • Flame-Out

    Over kill for one kiddie-porn filth, I know officers that do this all the time and don’t use this kind of fire power, agree with others as there is something not right here…

  • TheREALByeBye2TheImmoralRite

    Go get those purveyors of dirty pics! Besides, it’s so easy work that even our police can do it, and still not scratch a finger and get their lifetime welfare handout for helping defend biblical morals! A win-win if ever there was one!

    Meanwhile, be sure the let those child-molesting priests go free! After all, all they did was simply MOLEST young people as young as 6-years-old while pretending to be holy, one of the sickest things a human being can do to a child! But they’re decent, God-fearing Christians, so then it’s perfectly OKAY according to the sad lot called religious conservatives!

    Meanwhile, DO AS YOU’RE TOLD and get all fired up and angry about these DIRTY PICS! The national hangup about drugs started by Reagan just hasn’t been working as well to distract your feeble easily distracted minds from our REAL problems, so DIRTY PICS are the latest thing they use to get you all worried about non-issues. That way you won’t notice your perverted, corrupt priests in your churches and the slime in corporate America stealing you blind.

    P.S. Are some of you folks all bent out of shape about these dirty pics also angry that Steven Spielberg killed that dinosaur? Same kind of intellect…. LOL

    • Therealbybyetotherite

      Why must you be so naive to the police state in america obama has increased just like the NSA, your blind to the truth because of all the government money you receive Marie the welfare quenn and saying that military is big government waste well at least they are working for it unlike you. You fat couch potato libtard.

    • Steven Sweeney

  • b

  • Charles Austin Miller

    So, SWAT teams and helicopter support from SEVERAL federal and local law enforcement agencies are required to apprehend a “child pornographer”…???

    From what I’ve heard on law enforcement websites over the years, it’s standard operating procedure to charge somebody with “child pornography” when they can’t charge him with anything else — that way they can hold the suspect pretty much indefinitely without conclusive evidence.

    I mean, cops can throw down a child-porn tape on somebody’s property as easily as dropping a throw-down gun or a throw-down bag of dope, right.

    I’m not saying the guy isn’t a child pornographer, but it just seems like MAJOR OVERKILL, dispatching this kind of federal manpower, firepower and equipment, for a pervert with a bunch of videotapes.

    To me, it sounds like they went in there, all gung-ho, expecting SOMETHING ELSE but DIDN’T FIND IT.

  • FOXXY

    They say that the greatest cover story always involves something which will create a common connection to the masses, and one which will provide an unquestionably direct sense of repulsion. Thus: historically, this type of article will serve to create a smokescreen, which the average reader/viewer will be uncomfortable to discredit. Perhaps the article in question is true.However, one does not need to be a science professor to note the over use of equipment, and force. I will sit on the fence for the time being,until history provides the truth to this, and how global events are interwoven and heading towards an obviously extreme control agenda.

  • eri

    They forgot to mention they had the Death Star pointed at the guys house just in case. You know, all they had to do was send 2 undercover officers to achieve the same result. I’d like to know the cost to tax payers on this operation.

  • Jose

    If people don’t get off their butts and start craming into their city hall council meetings to demand the PDs lay down their militarized equipment they will eventually find an excuse to use it against you, your family, friends, and neighbos. Run away government is dangerous and it doesn’t discriminate.

  • Sheila

    Really, I cannot say that I believe all of this story. It seems there is more to this that we are not being told everything. From the story they are letting out, it seems as though the “law enforcement” was putting on a show and wasting resources. Let’s say the guys is a perv with all those images and vids they say he has had and collected “since he was 17”. Questions: why now? What have they been waiting for? I’ve reead numerous stories where when drug dealers or pot growers get busted, law enforcement breaks into their house when they are not there, take everything, then go and get the person. Wouldn’t that have been an easier way? Seems as if there was a lot of sensitive material for evidence that a smarter way to do it would be to sneak in unsuspectingly when someone is not home. It being done in front of a school is just a show of force to the children. Like getting them used to it. Make them think its “cool”. I am in no way defending this man, just questioning the tacktics used based on the situation. I’ve heard of people raided by the Feds who watched FULL evidence bags be brought IN to their homes. What? I have a strong feeling there is much more to this, but unfortunately, the people doing the prosecuting have virtually complete power over the media and the net. We’ll never know.
