UW Student Indicted On Child Porn Count

 

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted a former University of Wisconsin-Madison student on one count of sharing child pornography computer files.

 

According to court documents, an FBI agent in Los Angeles logged onto a file-sharing site in August 2010 and downloaded nearly 160 images linked to a computer in 23-year-old Matthew Hendrickson’s UW-Madison dorm room. Police contacted Hendrickson’s psychologist last month. She told an officer that Hendrickson had been diagnosed as a pedophile, enjoys watching children die in snuff films and could be at risk of hurting others.

 

Officers found Hendrickson in his bedroom at his parents’ home in St. Cloud, Minn., on June 27. His mother told officers he needs help.

 

Several calls to a number for Hendrickson’s attorney in St. Cloud did not connect.

    Help?

    What sort of help changes these types of urges?

    The kind of help that is distributed out the barrel of a firearm. That’s what kind.

    Git R Done

      Your right and I hope the police find you soon and put you away before your sociopathic tendancies hurt someone too.

        My right what? Learn English.

        1. john0990 says:

          STIL-H20, you probably shouldn’t be the one dispensing grammar advice.

          1. STIL-H2O says:

            I probably should, since I’m qualified.

            Saying “your right” is not English in the context in which it was used. Period.
            I’m not asking you; I’m telling you.

            1. john0990 says:

              I’m guessing that I’m more qualified than you are, especially considering the following sentence fragment from your initial post: “The kind of help that is distributed out the barrel of a firearm.”

              1. STIL-H2O says:

                You’re guessing incorrectly, unless you’re a published author and part-time copy editor, such as I am, in which case you would only be somewhat equal in qualifications, but not more qualified…

                1. john0990 says:

                  If those are your qualifications, I’m definitely guessing correctly.

        And I hope the Grammar Police find you and teach you the difference between “your” and “you’re”. Peace.

      Lets have sex tonight baby – we need to calm your nerves on these newstory posts! damn boy! lets Git R Done!

    I thought that a psychologist must notify police for something like this. The police notified the psychologist. The psychologist I think also should be charged.

    1. john0990 says:

      The psychologist couldn’t notify the police of anything since he or she didn’t have knoweldge of a crime actually being committed. Yes, a diagnosis of being a pedophile is extremely disturbing, but is not a crime in and of itself. If psychologists notified police of every troubling urge their patients expressed, just about everyone who’s seen a shrink would be in the klink.
