Brian Ross: Known Pedophile
Jul 25th, 2012 by Unamused
I’m sure by now you’ve heard all about ABC’s Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross and his little slip-up regarding the Aurora/Dark Knight/neuroscience shooter (NewsBusters):
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: I want go to Brian Ross here, because Brian, you’ve been investigating the background of Jim Holmes, and you found something that might be significant.
BRIAN ROSS: There’s a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado page on the Colorado Tea Party site, as well talking about him joining the Tea Party last year. Now, we don’t know if this is the same Jim Holmes, but it’s a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado.
It is not, in fact, the same Jim Holmes (see, e.g., The Blaze).
Shocking! Well, not really. As Nicholas Stix put it:
To [members of the mainstream media], Tea Partiers are fascist monsters. Thus, it was natural, given the leftwing paranoia, stupidity, and laziness of your typical MSM newsroom that Ross would immediately seek to pin the mass murder on a Tea Party member, and that once he found something that looked promising, he would not bother to confirm or disconfirm it.
Not shocking at all, then. I remained thoroughly unshocked.
But after I had dug a little deeper into this story (a little do-it-yourself Chief Investigative Correspondent-ing), I made a truly shocking discovery: someone by the name of
Brian Ross is a pedophile!
Here is the proof (pe.com):
Explicit photos and text messages to two girls has landed a 37-year-old Mentone man in jail on suspicion of sex-related charges, according to Fontana police and jail records.
Brian John Ross was arrested at 5:35 p.m. Thursday at Sierra and Merrill avenues in Fontana and booked on suspicion of contacting a minor and arranging to meet with a minor via the Internet for the purpose of having sex, jail records show. His bail is $50,000.
On March 13, a 10-year-old Fontana girl received a text message from a man who would later identify himself as a 38-year-old named “Brian,” police said in a written statement.
Brian sent the girl a face shot along with a photo of himself exposed, according to the statement.
“Brian asked (the girl) to send him pictures of herself,” according to the statement.
Similar text messages were sent to the girl’s 13-year-old cousin from Redlands.
Now, I’m certainly not suggesting that
Brian Ross, ABC’s Chief Investigative Correspondent, actually is a pedophile.
I am merely pointing out that someone named
Brian Ross wants to have sex with 10-year-old girls.
This could very well be one of those things “that might be significant” to some other thing. As a matter of fact, it’s highly significant, if you uncover evidence that
Brian Ross, the pedophile who wants to rape little kids, has been visiting your neighborhood!
Let me emphasize that I’m only talking about the hypothetical possibility that
Brian Ross, who really, truly is a child molester, is slinking around your neighborhood, peering in your windows, loitering about the playground, and generally acting highly suspicious in a child-molesty sort of way.
I’m certainly not talking about that other, better-known Brian Ross (who may or may not also pursue sexual relations with juveniles).
