UPDATE: Child sex groups horrific practices

August 19, 2008

A federal agent said today that a like-minded group which included San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Deputy Bryan Goossens and 51 others shared “very disturbing and graphic” images of children depicting bestiality and bondage.

Calling the evidence “horrific,” Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jorge Guzman told UncoveredSLO.com that 26 children, aged 2 to 17, have been removed from “dangerous environments” by appropriate family and child services officials.

FBI agents Monday arrested Goossens; postal employee Jeremy Neubauer of Nipomo; and Bryan Arnold of Grover Beach, for their alleged involvement in the group.

Utilizing Internet peer-to-peer software such as LimeWire, the suspects exchanged materials that Guzman found difficult to discuss: “There is no word to describe this,” he said. “Infants with umbilical cords attached being sexually abused or penetrated. You can’t imagine how horrific these are.”

Guzman also said the software may be making the pictures available to other children.

“A lot of kids use these programs to share files,” said Guzman. “It has not been uncommon [for investigators] to go to a residence and find that a child had inadvertently captured these images, then continued to go back.”

Federal officials said those arrested this week also included a teacher and an attorney.

“It is unfortunate that a lot of families have suffered from this,” Guzman added. “This is about protecting children.”

Child pornography convictions carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in federal prison, unless one has been previously convicted of a prior child exploitation crime.

The arrests are the result of a coordinated multi-agency task force of local and federal agencies led by ICE and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, “which received extensive assistance from a number of other agencies” including the United States Secret Service and local law enforcement.

The facts of this case are just abhorent. Maybe the worst I've ever heard in a case like this. infants? umbilical cords? WTF!? What have we become? And he is supposed to be one of the ppl we tell our kids to trust…..


I can not think of a punshment too harsh for this maggot…

To Wyatt Earp and others who always jump to the conclusion that Uslo has jumped to conclusions:Are you finally getting it that they are always right? Karen and Dan are human but seem to be always right on this site, so maybe next time a hot issue gets printed get off your high horse and give them the credibility they deserve.


I heard all about these allegations some weeks ago and I know they were aware too, but they refused to print anything without confirmation. They apparently do their job way better than the crooked lending brokers and police do.


So instead of assuming they are wrong, assume they are right, or sit tight and wait before shooting off on this blog until you KNOW something.


Messengers of bad news and criminality always bring out the nay sayers, that seems to be crummy part of humanity. Too bad, the truth is what matters, and is what sanitizes the filth, greed, sloth and stupidity of certain elements of our society. Thanks to the great spirit for the return of a free and aggressive press, here on the web.

This is not about society being more tolerable. These crimes have always gone on. These guys brains are wired so twisted that they have no choice. Just like a major cocaine addict. But you can sometimes cure a drug addiction. Not these guys.

By: Anonymous on 8/20/08

There is no punishment no matter how harsh that will deter people from doing this. Their brain is just wired differently. Even more than a compulsion. But there are all kinds of people who come under the title of child molester. Some just look at pictures. Some for statutory rape with a 15-17 yr. old. And some for crimes that make what has been discussed look like a day at the park. I work at ASH and believe me there are people released everyday much worse than this. Most are at Coalinga though now. Just yesterday I transferred a guy who did much much worse than this. Most of these guys you can't tell from anyone else. Also most are convicted by evidence that is less than rock solid. That is fine with me but if you start executing these creeps then sooner or later you will kill an innocent one. Every once in a while facts come out and show that a perp was innocent. But a lot of these guys have multiple arrests. The system needs to be changed drastically. But for a child molester who has had sex with a young child they should never get out. And repeat offenders should be locked up in the back somewhere and just be forgotten. There is no treatment or cure for these creeps. Maybe 1 out of 20 will not repeat again. They all say that they won't and maybe 10-15 really believe that they won't. And maybe 1 really won't. But do you want to pick that person who gets out and bet that they will be the one who won't do it again. That is what happens every day. And the way it is now. If they do the right things, say the right things, they will get out.

As a Christian I am against the death penalty but have no problem with locking these guys up for ever. If this Goossen guy is real lucky then maybe this is a new thing for him and he has never got past the picture part. But don't be fooled. Doctors, lawyers, judges, cops, priests, teachers, psychologists, I have seen them all do this. And always their friends say that this is not like him he was the greatest guy in the world. Wrong.

Everyone always wonders how and why something like this can happen…..There is a very simple answer, our society has become too tolerable, and we make excuses instead of taking care of the problems……..Physics of the real world law number one; “You will get just as much crap as you will take.” Whether you are a parent dealing with a teenager, or a society dealing with public officials, the rule holds true…..We as a society have two choices, either choice is very harsh; we can keep making excuses for this behavior and not deal with it, which will just promote more of this behavior and devastate the lives of more and more victims, or we as a society can make the punishment so harsh that it simply will not happen. Either way someone’s life will be devastated or ended.


If these people are convicted we can hand out some “harsh and unusual punishment” to deter this type of behavior in the future, or we can bury our head in the sand and deal with the victims of the “harsh and unusual” punishment these monsters hand out.


In my opinion anyone that we entrust our children to, teachers, police, coaches, etc. should be held to a higher standard. If they don’t like it, they should find another line of work…….A couple life without the possibility of parole, or even the death sentence in some cases, and this problem will go away.


Someone is going to be treated very harshly, our only choice is who.

Are you kidding? Only kidding yourself. The 10 commandments were violated in the "priestly" scenario you mentioned. In discussing the Biblical distribution of its standards of conduct, the standards are equally applied to all, regardless of position (whether priest, president or pauper). Personally, I'm in favor of the death penalty for serial child molesters. Child molestation is deeply hurtful, thus the appropriate allusion to putting a millstone around the neck and drowning such offenders, again, whether they be priest, president or pauper.

I knew what kind of trouble Goossens was in at the time he had the pile up in A-Town. I'm sure others knew too. I suspect that knowledge of his problems is partly what made the accident get leaked and the APD exposed with a big black eye for it. There are lots of leaks lately, or haven't you noticed?

By: Anonymous on 8/19/08

Who are you kidding. Goossens was placed on leave three weeks before the arrest and 10 days before the 5 car accident. The FBI did tell the Sheriffs what was up and that's why he was put on leave. What makes you think that the APD couldn't have known? What makes you think that Mr. G didn't personally call a friend like Detective W at the APD for help with his accident problem.

By: Anonymous on 8/19/08

For the last time, get over the A-Town PD link. As someone who actually has a relative in the FBI, I asked her in a case like this if they would ever notify any other agencies before the arrests, and she said absolutely not. They would never compromise the investigation. In addition, she is in a different area of the FBI and didn't know about this until I asked. They don't even talk to each other unless they are directly involved.

I think Rollo was saying the the 4 Goossen children are having to go through this embarrassment and somehow gain some semblence of understanding. I think we should all consider that there are 4 children who have become victims to the extent that their father is all over National TV. We might all consider the things that we say, there are all kinds of young victims to think about.

Please let me clarify a statement I made earlier about "four youths" in Atascadero. In that statement, I am referring to Goose's four children, not any additional victims. Sorry for the confusion… It's hard to write well in these little tiny windows.

This isn't "child pornography" they are talking about, it's much darker.

By: Anonymous on 8/19/08

In a pair of posts in the previous thread, I identified myself as a friend of Goose's who, no matter what, will remember him as a devoted father of four beautiful children and pleasant man. He had a hard time going through a divorce a few years back, and in hindsight, he may not have come through it as well as we thought. He has battled bouts of depression and sleeplessness, and particularly in the past several months has occasionally left us shaking our heads by speaking nonsensically about, well, we still don't know what the hell he was talking about. And for us to recognize nonsensical in a guy we thought of affectionately as a goofball, it really was pretty pronounced. I know Goose has battled bouts of depression and sleeplessness; I don't know specifically how, but there might very well have been some prescription medication involved. Anyway, I know the crimes Goose is charged with are more horrific than I can comprehend, and I don't seek leniency toward anyone who committed them. At the same time, I will never accept that a sane Goose could have done this. I know there are going to be folks eager to get on here and beat on a cop when he's down, but that's a tactic for the shallow and the weak. Fact is, any time now, we're likely to start receiving posts from people who met Goose via traffic stops, loud parties in San Miguel or his work in local schools. I'd be surprised if any of them remembered Deputy Goossen as anything but the best-natured law enforcement officer they ever encountered. In case anybody's interested, Goose is back home and in good spirits. He's aware of the "tough spot" he's in, but he has been aware of what was coming and prepared accordingly. As much as anything, he seems relieved to get the booking process behind him and is eager to express his side of the story. May it all work out for the best. In the meantime, let's remember the victims of the crimes and the four Atascadero youths who don't understand this any better than we adults do.

Is it possible the APD were cooperating with the FBI when they covered up that car crash with Goosen on Traffic Way? Maybe they were trying to tie things together and wanted him running and scared for a bit.

It's true that whenever some law enforcement official or politician goes way overboard fanatically campaigning against some form of vice, it usually turns out the fanatic has close ties to some form of vice himself.

Dear Poor SLO County,


Sophisticated sex offenders, just as any kind of offender (domestic violence, etc) can sometimes be difficult to spot. We may just feel uncomfortable around these people, then talk ourselves out of our feelings because we don't have "rational evidence" for those feelings. Anna Salter, Ph.D is an expert in sex offenders and their treatment. Her recent book "Predators – pedophiles, rapists, and other sex offenders – who they are, how they operate, and how we can protect ourselves and our children" is a gem, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to all of my clients who have children or are interested in the subject. Keep in mind, that Robert Hare, Ph.D., a national expert in psychopathology in general, states that even he can be fooled.


We can educate ourselves, clear out our own traumas that might cause complications in our ability to perceive clearly, and trust our judgment and our feelings. Still, we may make mistakes and be fooled by a child molester or someone in authority who will eventually abuse that authority and cause harm.


It is wise to become educated, talk, break secrets around abuse, stay strong, and live our lives to the fullest, anyway.


Helen Keller said it best: Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.


I hope this was helpful to those who wonder how predators can be our neighbors, co-workers, supervisors, and "protectors."


My condolences to the innocent victims and family members.

You can’t imagine how horrific these are” are being made, as well as the fact Agent Guzman doesn't appear to be their information officer, I wont believe this spin on the story unless it can be backed up with more than the claim this interview took place.


Also, in the Chan 9 report there were no allegations of child rape that I read or heard when I watched the video clip.

Tuesday, August 19, 2008 LOS ANGELES — Authorities say 55 men, including a sheriff's deputy and at least one attorney, have been charged with possessing child pornography following an eight-month investigation.

The U.S. attorney's office says the suspects used peer-to-peer networks to exchange graphic images and videos, then stored the files on their computers.

All are charged with possession of child pornography. Some have been charged with additional offenses, such as production of child pornography and committing crimes while registered sex offenders.

U.S. attorney's office spokesman Thom Mrozek says those facing charges include San Luis Obispo County sheriff's Deputy Bryan Jon Goossens and attorney Thomas Merdzinski of San Bernardino.
