Judge Brian Curtin the former star of Tralee amateur dramatics has a neck like a jockey's bollocks and a great actor‘s sense of timing: he resigned yesterday four and half years after Gardai led a botched raid on his house, but just two days after he was eligible for a disability pension.
For those of you who don't know the case, Curtin was arrested when gardai raided his home and seized his computer during Operation Amythest. There was clear evidence that he had been downloading child pornography.
However a judge later asked the jury to dismiss the case against Curtin as the search was illigal due-suspiciously to me at least- to the fact that the gardai were operating with an out-of-date search warrant.
A tribunal was set up to investigate. Judge Curtin never sat on the bench again, although he continued to draw his annual salary of nearly €150,000. And with Judge Curtin‘s medical history of heart problems and alcohol abuse, an annual €25,000 pension is virtually certain to be granted.
Curtin now 'just wishes to be left alone to enjoy whatever days god has granted him'.
I heard someone say at the time, 'ah sure, all he did was look at pictures.'
That has to be one of the single most stupid things I have ever heard in my 33 years on this planet. When people like Curtin download child porn and pay for it with their credit cards, they are feeding a monster. Without the sadistic and base appetites of men such as Curtin child porn cannot exist. it is not a charity, it is run and operated on the most part byt scum who make vast sums of money abusing children for the sexual delight of men like this 'Judge'. That these men get sexual pleasure form the systematic abuse of minor is a whole other can of worms I have no wish to delve into this Tuesday morning, but the fact that this man, this abuser, can now draw a state pension and was paid in full for the last number of years by the tax payer, ME, makes me very angry indeed.
It is an outrage. Where is the justice for the children this man paid to witness being humilated. Where is the political outrage? Where is McDowell? How was this allowed to happen on his watch?
