Two Fort Gordon officers are in jail in connection with separate undercover child pornography stings, according to a post spokesman.

Lt. Brian Tepe was arrested at the beginning of February in connection with an investigation in Greene County, Ga. Maj. Lonnie Locke, a chaplain on the post, was arrested in January in connection with an investigation in Lee County, Ga., Fort Gordon spokesman Buz Yarnell said..

The FBI is handling the cases, which are unrelated, Yarnell said.

I am ashamed to know that officers are capable of such horrible crimes, and one is a chaplain.

I, too, am disappointed to hear that officers are involved in this type of behavior. But, as everyone knows, the military are human like the rest of us. What a way to toss careers down the drain.

Happy, I'm of the opinion

Happy, I'm of the opinion that the abuse has gone on since the beginning of time, it was just kept under wraps better before instant worldwide communications. A lot of those getting caught up in it now are creeps looking for child porn on the internet. The creeps doing it just have a market to sell their sick pictures that wasn't there before internet.

Excuse me for not knowing,

Excuse me for not knowing, but was it publicized that the Chaplain was arrested in Jan? Was it a "secret?" If so, why was this information kept from the public?
I'll keep an open mind on this. Nothing is as it seems.

The North American Man/Boy

The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA), who want to abolish age of consent laws and end "the extreme oppression of men and boys in mutually consensual relationships" is out there, waiting for their 'fair shot' just like same-sex couples waited for their 'fair shot'.

Only in America will you find people who believe being a pedophile is a civil right and even more people thinking society can reform these vile
pathetic excuses for human beings.....

Check your local sex-offender listings. The list keeps getting longer every day as society rolls over and plays stupid.

happy...anyone is capable of

happy...anyone is capable of being anything. It makes no difference what their rank is...all rank means is that they passed a test and a promotional board's criteria (which means they had good evaluations and acceptable job performance) and that to that point, they werent caught. To those who serve and deserve the rank they earned, please dont take my comment wrong...Im not trying to demean anyone.

When will the stupidity end?

When will the stupidity end? Don't these men know about all the sting operations that go on all the time? I guess they don't care or the sick urge they have outweighs caring or reasoning. I don't know if either of these men have wives or children but if they do I pray for them.

With the military now giving

With the military now giving Offical blessing from washington to

sodomy in the ranks , these guys probably just got a little

carried away by all the new, intelligent, progressive , forward thinking

freedoms being bestowed from on high.

With the federal goverment now ready to mandate papiloma virus

vacinations for all grade school boys as well as girls to keep the little

fellas safe from anal cancer the plans are being moved forward as we

speak.

Plastering the pictures of all these Officers, mayors , police,

teachers , professers , bankers , investors , lobbiests , doctors ,

chemical engineers, etc,etc,etc,,,,,,,in the paper is just to

intolerable and something must be done .

Namely a national law lowering the age of consent to 11 or 12 years

old or so.

Boys first , since evryone can give a knowing wink and a nod to " boys

will be boys" .

The girls to follow shortly thereafter.

Evolving at the current pace just imagine were society can go from

there.

Is there any doubt this land is condemned?
