March 01--A Southfield man who is facing child pornography charges after the FBI discovered lewd child porn comments on his Facebook page is free on bond, with a tether, and is prohibited from using the Internet -- for now at least.
Thaddeus McMichael, 21, made his initial appearance in federal court Wednesday after the FBI arrested him on child pornography charges.
The FBI had discovered several raunchy and explicit comments about kids and sex on McMichael's Facebook page, including statements that mocked disabled children who get molested, records show.
But it wasn't just his Facebook postings that got him into trouble, records show.
The FBI also found between 300 and 350 images and videos of child pornography in McMichael's electronic media sources, which were seized during a search of his Southfield home, records show.
The FBI tracked McMichael down after receiving a tip last June about a Facebook user who was "actively discussing child pornography" on the social networking site.
The Facebook postings were disclosed in court records in U.S. District Court, including one that read: "all cp isn't rape, Sometimes the kids want it. Most of the time they NEED it." In another Facebook post, records show, the user wrote: "What if I adopt a little girl? I'm sure she wouldn't mind becoming my sex slave if I take her away from the orphanage."
Facebook records led the FBI to McMichael, who was confronted with the Facebook postings during an interview, records show.
McMichael told the FBI that the posts were just a joke, records show.
McMichael's court-appointed attorney could not be reached for comment.
This guy is a pathetic excuse for a human being. Apparently he genuinely isn't emotionally and mentally stable. However he's had a long history of "trolling" under the guise of a pedophile, and it turns out he really was one after all. But pedophilia is just the worst of a long list of issues. For instance, him obsessing over his "waifu" on Facebook to the the point of...well, this.
He has a Facebook where he posts his disillusions of reality
. Well, used to, at least. He also has a Youtube channel where he used to blogs about his pillowcase's birthday, his favorite "toys", and why you shouldn't illegally download anime. I'm not joking.
Additionally, here's a series of papers listing the comments that didn't exactly help him with the court case
. Basically his excuse for all of them was that he was joking, although some of the statements weren't too far from the truth.
Other than just factual details, I'm pretty much speechless about this guy.
