Vegas Gunman Stephen Paddocks Brother Arrested in Child Porn Probe

Source: NBC News

The estranged brother of Las Vegas massacre gunman Stephen Paddock was arrested Wednesday in connection with child pornography, law-enforcement sources said.

Bruce Paddock, 58, was detained at a Los Angeles assisted-living facility, where he was awaiting surgery for spinal stenosis. A felony complaint said he had over 600 explicit images of minors in in 2014 and also swapped pornography.

He faces 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography, the complaint says.

1. You would think?

After your brother commits mass murder you would lay low on your illegal activity?

Glad they got him though.

3. I'd bet that he got caught up in an investigation

 

That's been on-going for months and has nothing to do with the fact that his brother was a mass murderer..

6. Probably both...

Dude may have been in a general database of a child porn investigation and then something pinged as they looked at him in relation to his brother.

4. As A Former

CPS worker, the lack of self-preservation skills of these guys used to amaze me. I had a guy involved in kiddie porn in a major way when not one but two workers were visiting the house weekly. The family was telling us about it on an ongoing basis and he was under investigation by police. He was caught by police while looking at the stuff on his computer. Later he was in jail and his wife visited him. He got angry at her and verbally threatened to kill her, while in the jail visiting room surrounded by other inmates, visitors and guards.

2. And the father was a psychopath

Sounds like a little more weight given to the heritability of personality disorders.

7. Sounds like this dude has a long criminal history and outstanding warrants

and got royally pissed off at the increased attention on him after his brother's shooting.

And their other brother gave those loony interviews on TV. I bet he'll be watched very closely.

What a family.

9. Well, Considering The Dad

Not only the criminal activity and resulting family chaos, but the genetic possibilities. Parenting matters. If you decide that running from the FBI is the life for you, maybe don't have children.
