How many of these holier-than-thou types have to wind up with their hands down kids’ pants before people realize that they who protest too much probably have a little something to hide?
Daniel D. Thompson ran an Orem, Utah business that edited feature films to remove naughty content. The store shut down after threats from the movie studios in light of Clean Flicks of Colorado, LLC vs. Soderbergh, No. 02-CV-01662-RPM (D. Colo., July 6, 2006). (This Utah Clean Flix does not appear to be related to any entities involved in that litigation).
Mild-mannered moralist censor by day, child molester by night!
Thompson and his buddy Isaac R. Lifferth were arrested for having sex with 14 year old girls (for the sum of $20 per trick).
The booking documents state Thompson told the 14-year-olds that his film sanitizing business was a cover for a pornography studio. He asked the girls if they would participate in making a porn movie, but they refused, the documents state.
Police found a “large quantity” of pornographic movies inside the business, along with a keg of beer, painkillers and two cameras hooked up to a television. Thompson told police he didn’t know the teenagers were under 18 or that they were paid for sex. He said pornography found at the business was for “personal use,” according to the documents. (source)
All I can say is, “it figures.”
