DVD's? Damn Jared!

Not saying I'm for what he did but the FBI are really looking into destroying peoples lives. Should they be looking for murders or major drug dealers instead of porn?

You do know that child porn funds the abuse of children and that many victims of said porn end up murdered and are often intentionally hooked on hard drugs to keep them mentally chained to their john, right

You do know that child sex trafficking is a HUGE problem in the United States, right

and that it's a huge inter-state business

which is exactly the FBI's jurisdiction

do you not have empathy, or an understanding of the vast

vast

galaxy sized

cliff between consensually participant adult porn and child porn?

do you wake up each day ready to go on the internet and say to yourself "imma go equivalize girls and boys being raped against their will who are often murdered and maimed by adults who should be protecting them with law enforcement overreach"

I don't think anyone was defending pedophiles, or making excuses for them, more like just trying not to throw labels around until evidence came to light. Now that evidence has come to light, and Jared has all but confirmed himself he is guilty, I'm pretty sure that those people will be happy to climb on the GAF side of the fence.

This is definitely what my belief was at the time. He hadn't been arrested for it at the time, and the uncommon circumstances around the whole situation, with his friend and business partner having been arrested for it recently, made it possible he was just getting caught up in it.

But as the days went by, and then the details about the underage prostitution came out, it became apparent which way things were going to go.

Will be interesting to see how this affects Subway and their business. They may have disassociated themselves from him publicly but he's still a pretty big part of their public perception. Doubt it will stop people from going there any more than the shitty bread already does, but I think it makes Subway the butt of pedo jokes from now until eternity.

This guy is a scumbag, and it goes beyond CP. I mean, he didn't "just" look at illegal porn, he acted on his impulses with a 16 year old prostitute. Jesus. I hope he goes to prison, but it's probably a pretty good plea deal... dude is rich. On the other hand, federal sentences for child porn are substantial. We may luck out and he gets that prison time in the end!

There is a conversation to be had on this stuff and points that should be made, but I doubt it'll be made here in this topic.

child porn is worse than murder.

I don't agree with that.

and a completely different league from drugs.

child porn destroys the children's lives. of course the FBI should go after them. and destroy them.

But this is spot-on.

As far as I'm concerned the plea deal better include prison - if not that's a grave disservice to the children that were abused and exploited in this.

Never eating at Subway again, and I'm damn sure a lot of people won't either. Their stock and sales are going to take a HUGE hit from this.

Not that I'll miss them, quality-wise they're about a picometer better than Arby's.

Why is subway liable for this? It seems to me they just got really really unlucky, unless there is evidence of some cover-up.

According to google, child pornography possession is a mandatory minimum 5 year sentence. Not sure if I searched properly.

The dude better goddamn go to jail over this. He has enough money that even being put on the sex offender registry isn't gonna inconvenience his life all that much.

Jareds possession of child porn is relevant to Subways food how?

As much as I know he won't be he deserves to be locked up in general. There's no way he isn't getting locked up. His life is over. I hope his wife didn't know and divorces his ass for everything he's got takes their kids far away from him... Poor kids.

This probably isn't the thread to discuss pedophilia / child porn as a thought crime for a condition that needs help. I'm also conflicted on if the consumption of child porn is what's responsible for the exploitation of the child, the production obviously is. In general I think these things are more gray than the black and white its made to be. Child saftey tends to do that to laws. Which is clearly important. I'm not trying to minimize that because in general I'm glad something is being done here.

Jared Fogle.

Proving yet again, that you can well liked, personable, and affluent, and still be a total scumbag.

It's more inaction than anything. His manager got nicked for it, and the company seriously didn't think to go the extra mile and make sure their Goddamn face wasn't in on it? I know I would do an investigation right away.

This at the very least reeks of corporate incompitance, but it could very likely be something worse.

So I commented on their FB page regarding the link in the OP, providing the link as evidence, and they removed it.

Are you serious with this shit? By that logic you should probably never eat anywhere or buy anything ever again, cause everyone is probably ancillarily related to some fucked up shit that they had nothing to do with.

Thank you. Fast food franchise spokespeople are vetted for these exact reasons. Subway knew what turns Jared's crank and they let him peddle their foot-longs to our children anyway. Fuck Arby's too.

Posting evidence here in case they remove my post entirely, lol. The news link used to be the second post.

Like any other corporation, they are trying to move away from bad publicity. They are not involved, so they don't want it on their FB page.

Is there any evidence that Subway knew about this? I thought it had been mentioned in another thread that they knew about the prostitute or something.

Regardless, they are in an uncomfortable position right now, but IMO, they should be coming down on this way harder than they are.

Yeah because I'm sure Subway wants to discuss the issue of pedophilia on their company's facebook page. I have no idea why they are deleting your posts. Keep on fighting the good fight.
