In a scathing report, a self-described "recovering librarian" has reported how American Library Association [ALA]-accredited schools indoctrinate students, and, as a direct result, her eastern university school library, for example, allegedly aided and abetted pedophiles, destroyed physical evidence, retaliated against a whistle blower, all the while claiming dubious privacy and free speech rights under the First Amendment for a child pornography viewer.

Please read "Liberals, Libraries, and Child Pornography by Jenn Q. Public," by Afrocity, Autographed Letter Signed, 3 May 2009, which references "Librarians Still Enabling Pedophiles," by Jenn Q. Public, Red Alerts, 16 March 2008.

hear how she "discovered that this extremely liberal east coast college had disappeared the incident." Another whitewash? The library ensured "network logs had been wiped clean, the hard drive had been destroyed," all to protect the child porn criminal. Compare that treatment to the library ....

Today my concern is that librarians continue to aid and abet pedophiles in the name of free speech and that highly dubious sweeping right to privacy that I have yet to find in the Constitution or Bill of Rights. Their mission to promote intellectual freedom by ensuring patron confidentiality nearly always seems to trump their responsibility to protect our children from pedophiles.

Librarians cite the protection of personal liberties as a reason for withholding records or failing to report crimes to law enforcement. They don’t want to provide The Man with information that might incriminate someone based on their literary proclivities - you know, like child pornography.

Isn’t it time we knocked members of the American Library Association off their high horses, or at least ripped those First Amendment cloaks from their shoulders? Here’s a thought: maybe a little critical thinking could help librarians distinguish between genuine criminal activity and odd or embarrassing taste in ....

After college, I began working in an academic library and decided to pursue a graduate degree in Library Science. If nothing else, my indoctrination into librarianship drove home one point: never, ever give law enforcement officials information about a library patron.

shhh

Those who obstruct law enforcement are deified as defenders of First Amendment rights, while those who adhere to legal mandates by cooperating with local or federal officials are pariahs in the library world. I was 22 and in love with libraries and books. Nerdy, I know, but championing First Amendment rights, actually helping to defend the American public from censorship, sounded so noble.

And I believed all this discussion of professional philosophy and information ethics was purely theoretical. Surely no pedophile would use the public access computers in the library to download kiddie porn.

But then, a technically savvy coworker came to me, pale and visibly shaken, and told me he had found horrible ....

Prosecutors say Donny Crisler was looking at pictures of naked boys on a computer at the county-run library in Lindsay. His case had been delayed several times.

A doctor has been appointed to evaluate Danny Lynn Crisler, the man accused in February of viewing pornographic material using a Lindsay library computer.

Those charges were later dropped, reportedly for lack of evidence.
....
“The first charge was dropped because there was no evidence that he was viewing anything inappropriate at the library,” Soltesz said. “The librarian [then library clerk Brenda Biesterfeld] said he was looking at something he wasn’t. What really happened is that he was looking through his e-mail. What the FBI found was one of the e-mails somebody sent was a generic ad for an enlarged penis.”

Those charges were later dropped, reportedly for lack of evidence.

In response to the articles in the local press..., this needs to be addressed by the public at large. .... I am calling on Connie Conway to take a stand on the side of doing what is right, and act immediately to reinstate this librarian to her former posi
