Ex-DEA Officer Gets 25 Years For Making Child Porn

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A former investigator with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for producing child pornography.

Forty-nine-year-old Scott James Whitcomb of Zimmerman was sentenced Thursday.

He had pleaded guilty earlier this year, admitting that between 2007 and 2010 he made videos containing images of three boys. Two of them were between the ages of 12 and 16 and one was younger.

Court documents say he had invited the boys to his house to play video games, then eventually began abusing them and taping it. He was busted in an undercover operation last August.

The Star Tribune reports Whitcomb spoke in court during his sentencing. He apologized for his actions and hoped the victims and families would someday forgive him.

    Why?

    There is no rehabilitation for this type of behavior. Why should he go to prison? He must be made to forfeit his life for his crimes. There is no excuse for hurting children, especially in this manner…

      What are you suggesting be done?

      1. Barry L says:

        Put him to sleep. That’s my interpretation of the post. Which part was confusing you?

        1. Realist says:

          Which part was confusing me? Oh I don’t know, maybe the part where due process is thrown out the window. The man was caught, prosecuted, convicted, and sentenced in accordance with the law.

          1. The Architect says:

            You sound like a child porn apologist. Might want to distance yourself from that sort of connection…

            1. curly_racks says:

              I think you have a good point here! If we have to keep him alive then don’t put him in PC (protective custody) because in the joint he is as good as dead without it.

              1. The Architect says:

                If we want him dead, why don’t we just change the sentencing guidelines and have him put to death? Why do you want the inmates to do your dirty work for you, vigilante style?

    Let him pickup the soap in the shower. The fun begins

  3. Cell 615C Bubba says:

    No need for the soap-pickup.
    Just let it slip in prison what he is there for. Even amongst prisoners, he is the lowest of the low. And damnnnnn a cop to boot?? \/\/TF were you thinking dude???

    1. See you soon says:

      They will have to keep him in snitches row. They wont put him in with general population. His life now has a price on it….like 2 packs of smokes. Good luck surviving…even in isolation, anyone can get got in prison.

    2. The Architect says:

      If you’re endorsing having other inmates execute the punishment you yourself are not willing to inflict, why don’t we find those who will, instead of asking other convicts to do it for us?

      1. Real Talk says:

        The main problem with your statement: Who the hell is asking the inmates to do anything? Who is asking the convicts to do anything for us? Specifically show me where anyone is posing any questions asking inmates to do anything? If you cant, you are the biggest moron to enter this site today….stfu.

        If you find the nature of current system of crime and punishment less than satisfactory….fine….thats a different arguement unrelated to the current thread you goober.

        PS…the handle, “the architect” makes you the biggest tool in the history of time.

        1. The Architect says:

          Wow, was that really necessary? You don’t like my opinion so you tell me to stfu and you tell me the handle “the architect” makes me a tool?

          Grow up, little man, before the real men step on your face.

          1. Real Talk says:

            Your opinion was asinine at best. LOLOL….”If you’re endorsing having other inmates execute the punishment you yourself are not willing to inflict….blah blah blah blah”….its almost comical how stupid you would have to be to make that statement. You have issues with grandiosity kid….your hyperboles and rhetoric are played out and so very unoriginal & unintelligent. So yes please, STFU!!!!

            “I hate koala bears”….see i can spout off nonsense that has nothing to do with anything also.

            PS….your handle absolutely makes you a tool. I’m guessing an acne faced little 24 year old playing on the computer in complete darkness in your mothers basement as your pretend to be an adult in a WCCO comment board?? Was I close??…..just kidding, of course i was!!!

            PSS…you asked, “was that really necessary?”. The answer: probably not. But based on your repeated posting of pure gibberish…it sure felt good.

            Have a great day my son…via con Dios

            1. The Architect says:

              LOL

              Another one bites the dust in a massive meltdown. Hilarious!

            2. The Architect says:

              BTW, my 24th revolution around the sun came and went quite a few years ago, kiddo. Well over a decade in my past now. I can see you’re intimidated by my superior language skills. Perhaps you should have just gone to college and sought after a decent career. Is it too late now? Oh well.

              Cheers!

              (LOL)

              1. Real Talk says:

                Yes….you are just too smart buddy. And such a lonely nerd too. Honestly, who reference their birthday as a “revolution around the sun”….talk to me if you ever want to know what a real woman feels like.

                And again your arguement is so stupid.

                So either i am truly annoyed and i personally believe your comments are asinine and unrealted…OR…in actuality, i am “intimidated” by your “superior” language skills? Good one Einstine. -2 points for lack of creativity.

                FYI…any chance you can clarify your statement about me “biting the dust”….i honestly dont get it? I mean, i’m aware of the saying, i just dont understand it in the context you were using. (you’ll have to forgive me, just remeber you are dealing with someone with inferior ‘language skills’)

                1. The Architect says:

                  Your comment was barely even in recognizable English. How embarrassing for you.

                  Well, now you know what a college graduate sounds like when they speak. I’m sure you probably don’t encounter many of us graduates in your daily life, do you. Didn’t think so…

                  Talk to you about what a real woman feels like, eh? Now you’re a real man? LOL. I find that so hard to believe. I would bet any amount of money that there isn’t a single “manly” thing about you at all.

                  I was probably in the century club before you ever found out what 2nd base was like, sport…. LMFAO

                2. yeah... says:

                  Need to ignore this fool. He is a network admin with a severe god complex. I liken him to the old SNL tech support guy. “MOVE!”. Bright people, but common sense and interpersonal skills are virtues most of them lack. More often then not they believe what comes out of their mouth rather than listening to sound reason.

                3. The Architect says:

                  Provide me with sound reason and I’ll scrutinize it and consider it.

                  However, that scenario hasn’t played out yet here, Champ. :p

                4. The Architool says:

                  Any woman the “architect” has touched is one he has paid for. Dont waste your time on this scrub. Nobody hates him more than he does himself. He will either eat himself to death here soon, or preferable go the ‘ol suicide route (that’s what I’m hoping for).

                  Cheers!!!!

                5. The Architect says:

                  LOL

                  Seriously? That is really the best you can do?

                  I don’t know if I should be disappointed or uplifted. The “you’re not a real man” insults are so hard-hitting and hurtful.

                  Eat myself to death? I’m not sure that’s even worth typing out and submitting as a comment. That was just stupid. I’m probably in so much better shape than you, that this comment is simply laughable at best.

                  I mean, really? Pay for women? Is that still a real insult these days? We had so much better stuff in my day. Sad.

    Does anyone else see the irony here? A DEA agent and prison guard who likely put others in prison for longer terms than he got now becomes the fresh fish. On one side we have people who provide other consenting adults with a substance that they choose to ingest for whatever reason and are treated more harshly by the system, than this excuse of a man who preyed on young children and robbed them of their innocence.

    We don’t need a war on drugs, we need a war on child molesters! I hope this SOB gets shanked.

  7. Big Dave says:

    Got out of the Big house awhile ago…Scott James who put some of in there is what we call “a gift that keeps on giving”. take our frustrations out on him over and over again… death would be better.

  8. @architect says:

    Reality is architect comments at work and work only he doesn’t even own a computer, it’s quite embarassing, he’s a telemarketer, il pay you $100 architect to post during non work hours.

    1. gagreflexsyndrome says:

      he can’t at that time, too busy stepping up to the man meat microphone

      1. em0886 says:

        Wow everyone!!! Good to see that nobody’s lost their will to attack each other!! I think we are getting away from the point that this man needs to sentenced to the full extent; these poor kids that had to endure such pain and will for the rest of their lives….this man will get what he deserves though in prison, those men in there do nothing but lift weights and hate sexual predators!!! Not to mention a former DEA agent acting as if he was so law abiding…karma is a beautiful thing and he will get his and then some!!!
