    I don't like to look at young boys, says teacher

    I don't like to look at young boys, says teacher


    http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/i-dont-lik...607-1zyal.html


    A former teacher at an exclusive Sydney school who viewed and shared tens of thousands of child porn images has denied he likes looking at young boys, a Sydney court has heard.

    The court heard Coupland, who acted as a photographer at school sporting events, had about 35,000 images of children, mainly young boys, on his personal computer.
    But he told the court: "I don't like to look at young boys."
    Posing as a "much younger man", he shared about 500 of those images with others online, Judge Laura Wells was told.

    "The images I uploaded, I believed [the children] were over the age of 18," he said.
    Coupland said before his arrest he did not believe he was viewing child pornography but he now knew it was.



    No wonder "we" as photographers get side long glances at school sporting events etc. If the teachers can't be trusted, it's got to make parents wary about strangers with telephoto lenses aimed at their kids.

    This stuff is just sad and depressing yet it happens so much.

    Yes, a sordid theme, to be sure, Jim.

    Just a thing about your remark, Jim, though I can sense you mean it well, "If the teachers..." leaves no scope for exception. I would suggest "If teachers..." or "If some teachers...", probably the latter to dispel any doubt.

    Am.
    CC, Image editing OK.

    One rotten apple spoils the whole bunch.

    However, I do believe there is huge difference between taking photos of kids in sporting events and having thousands of nude photos of kids on your computer, but maybe I am naive.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    I have to agree. If you can go to the footy ground and see a game, I don't see how anything you photograph there could be "offensive material" out side of some "sick" persons mind. Now if he was peeping in the change room whole different matter.

    To put it in perspective I like women and would anyone be offended if I had 1000s of photos of women walking in he street? Totally legal to photograph people in public places.

    I don't think the issue is in the material but in the minds of certain individuals and how they perceive it or what they fantasise while looking at it.
