So they won't say if they found anything? They're checking his computer, his magazines (if any), or any evidence of illegal content. It's enough to get him off the Subway campaign right?

It's an ugly situation, but America is driven by healthy foods. If this was Doritos or Pepsi you'd have another story, but because this is Subway people will forget it all happened. Healthy people is greater than image.

It's not a joking matter. It's a federal crime and those who violate it should pay the price. There should be zero tolerance when it comes down to such a thing.

Edit:
Seems Subway is losing its taste for Jared Fogle in the wake of a child porn investigation ... 'cause the sandwich giant is already scrubbing traces of the pitchman from its official website.
As of moments ago, Subway's website no longer connects to "Jared's Journey" -- an entire section devoted to Jared, his weight loss experience ... and fun games and interviews with Jared and celebrities.

http://www.tmz.com/2015/07/07/subway-scrubbing-jared-from-website/

No actual statement by Subway, but they did say they're monitoring it. I'd scratch the whole situation off like it never happened.

I'm starting to think Taylor probably told Feds that Jared was a child porn enthusiast as well, and that's why they conducted the raid on Fogle's house.

Seriously, what the hell are they using as a back-end for that thing? Looks like it's from 1999.

I believe both NeoGaf and SA use vBulletin or Invision, and gaf really does not look much better, we're just used to it. The look of all of these UBB derivative forums haven't changed all that much from what UBB looked like in like 1996.

This is the UBB Documentation from like 1998 or 1999.

Everything has the potential to be funny. Everything.

i applaud your bravery in this sudden world, filled with sensibilities and sensibility police.

I, on the other hand, shall comment on how jared will still eat subs in prison, with every meal.

He's temporarily suspended, not fired. If the report comes back clean, I imagine they'll reinstate his contract.

I hope it was just his employee. I don't care if he's reinstated but I don't want to think he used his position and children's charities to exploit his perversion. Man.

Your imagination may be running a little too wild there. I have a feeling that won't happen regardless.

If he's completely innocent, that would be a crying shame, but unfortunately in some cases we're looking at the modern day Salem Witch Trials. The accusation alone is enough.

This thread and the responses in it and from around the net and in the media, are the exact reason I tell my wife I refuse to be alone with someone elses kid or kids. In the past she would want me to watch one of my sons friends while her and my son were away for some reason, or the kid was going to be dropped off and she wasn't home yet. Nope. Never. Nada. One wrong, or dishonest word from one of those kids, and my life is over. I've seen it happen a couple times now. Once with a teacher at my old junior high,(he was found innocent, and the girl was clearly lying. Her testimony in court proved that. But he would never teach again.) and a second time with my sisters ex-boyfriend.

Once an accusation like that flys, innocent or not, you may as well move to another country and change your name.

Holy shit I thought this was a fake news post because I saw it on some other site saying Beyoncé was trying to buy the confederate flag rights.


Edit: see the update, I'd like to believe it doesn't extend beyond Taylor.

Ya, that's not going to happen.

Unfortunately, even if you're 100% cleared and innocent, you don't come out of a situation like this without a bit of stink permanently lingering around you.

I don't think having child pornography on your hard drive is so bad, but it's definitely wierd as fuck. Wouldn't catch me with it... I just don't see how anyone could get any sort of sexual thrill or high from naked children. :/

It's like assuming someone is a furry just because they have furry porn on their hard drive. Difference is, child porn can convict someone. Furry porn will just get you wierd looks at worst.

Now if the guy actually raped a kid... that would be a whole different story, bro. That's not cool.

But accusations aren't to be taken likely. And in my experience, people can make some wiiiiild accusations based on a few actions that could be mis-interpreted.

For example, posting lots of nice comments on someone's blog could either be interpreted as A: being a creep or B: just being a nice guy.

Of course, it's way easier to assume someone is a pedophile if they have child pornography on their person. However, porn in and of itself is not harmful, it just severely implies that the person is capable of doing something potentially harmful at some point in the future. Which I guess is why it's considered a crime, it's more of a preventative thing.

I don't think Jared from Subway is a pedophile.

Some of you sound awfully like you're defending him.

Even if he did help you lose weight, you can't just flat out defend this.

Let me be clearer, I'm fully defending him. It's obvious that this is just a precaution to make sure that Jareds employee didnt have any other files on his work related content.

This is, without a doubt, the worst post I've ever seen on GAF and possibly ever.

Yeah, this. Accusations are a hell of a thing. Here's hoping that he's not innocent, otherwise he got totally screwed for no reason.

No way. His name has been tainted no matter what happens, like that meat company that went under from that 'pink slime' story which was proven false later

If you have child pornography on your computer it means you are sexually attracted to children. Which means there is a strong chance you will at some point attempt to have sex with a child. And even if you never do, merely having child pornography helps promote a horrible illegal industry that abuses and exploits children.

A company that's still willing to pay a fraud like RGIII won't have a problem paying Jared if he's found to have no involvement with child porn.

Dude....nooooo.

Even if that porn was somehow put in your computer without you even knowing it, you'd have to be going to some pretty shady websites for that to happen.

Actually seems like a really easy way to fuck someone over for life: gain access to their computer for 5 minutes, download a bunch of CP and other illegal stuff into a directory they won't find, clear the browser history, and report a tip sometime later.
