Old people are so funny, aren’t they? My grandfather once got scared that if he sneezed near his computer it’d catch a virus. Isn’t that sweet? They’re always up to goofy stuff, like going into a store and complaining that they can’t use this new fandangled interweb to look at… child porn?
What the f*ck!?
Yeah, so this happened. A man in Grimsby has been arrested after he entered his local Carphone Warehouse to seek technical help with his brand-new phone. He was frustrated that his voice-control search wasn’t working. Or specifically, when he asked for pictures of “nude children” it produced no results.
Workers were perplexed at the man’s open attitude. They described him as “brazen”, and noted that he was not at all embarrassed about telling them that the was looking for child pornography. The workers promptly spoke to their manager who in turn phoned the police. Later that weekend the man was arrested and his phone was seized where hundreds of pictures of naked children were discovered, alongside videos of bestiality.
Now, we know what you might be thinking. Is it possible that this man did not think that child pornography is a big deal? He’s clearly an old man. Maybe he’s just that oblivious to the real world? Many old people live very insular lives. They don’t know what’s going on around them. They think twitter is a candy.
He had sexual convictions in 1957, 1960, 1962, 1995 and 1998 so this guy was clearly well aware that child porn was illegal. There’s no conceivable way to explain why this guy thought he would get away with walking into a store and asking for help searching for child porn. In fact, we can only really conclude that he’s a massive weirdo and there’s no point trying to understand him. Thankfully his idiocy means he’s been caught and charged!
