Since I’ve started this website I’ve always been fascinated by the excuses that alleged criminals give for their crimes. That fascination grew after the popularity of the To Catch A Predator series when most of the suspects were asked why they were there said they just wanted to hang out.
For example take 25-year-old Krishna Royster, of Bridgeport, Connecticut. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said they found a number of child porn images being posted to Tumblr. Investigators are said to have allegedly traced the images back to Royster’s computer. This is supposedly how Royster explained his actions to police…
When they later confronted him, police said Royster admitted uploading the images to Tumblr but claimed he didn’t have any urges to act on what he saw with children.
“He said he just tried to put outrageous things on Tumblr and the child pornography photos and videos were part of that,” police said Royster told them.
Why didn’t you say so? That makes everything ok. You’re free to leave. It really can be like listening to a 6-year-old trying to explain why the lamp is broken. There is no excusing child porn for whatever reason.
