SLO County employee arrested for distributing child pornography

Alex Rosen

By KAREN VELIE

Arroyo Grande police arrested an administrative assistant for the San Luis Obispo County planning department on May 16 for allegedly possessing and distributing child pornography.

After a short investigation, police served a search warrant at 35-year-old Alex Daniel Rosen’s home on the 700 block of Evans Road in San Luis Obispo and discovered hundreds of images of adolescent boys and girls engaged in sex. Officers seized one laptop, two desk tops and six external hard drives.

The Arroyo Grande Police Department is part of the Child Exploitation Task Force and takes a proactive approach against child exploitation throughout the county, said Shawn Cosgrove, Arroyo Grande Police Department investigative sergeant.

“We are very, very proactive on all cases of child exploitation,” Cosgrove said. “Preventing hands on offenses is our ultimate goal.”

Following the search of Rosen’s home, officers asked county technicians to search planning department computers Rosen had access to for child pornography. It has been determined that Rosen was not downloading child pornography from county computers.

Officers arrested Rosen for possession and distribution of child pornography and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Someone who works for County planning department accused of illegal behavior? No way.

Again…….

So here’s the weird thing. This guy lives in San Luis Obispo, but Arroyo Grande PD does the arrest, not the Sheriff (Evans Road is in the county). So there was something criminal going on in AG for them to be involved. Someone mentioned about the new AG city manager being his manager in the SLO county planning department. I wonder if there is something bigger going on…?

Hundreds of images??? Let the prison inmates deal with him.

It is estimated 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys experience some sort of sexual touch (or more invasive actions). These children become adults that will either “act in” (drug abuse, cutting, alcohol use, etc.), or they will “act out” as in….what you see right here.

Jesus Christ get off your cult band wagon, bad things happen, a cult based following has nothing to do with pedophiles existing. How bout parents stop leaving kids alone with uncle touch, whom then grow up to be this guy.


kayaknut

Was this guy managed by Arroyo Grande’s new city manager?

Our tax dollars hard at work. It makes me feel so good that government confiscates 40 percent of my income and charges me money every time I spend a nickel to support these wonderful government workers and their sham jobs and departments.

Gosh, I wonder what our veterans of war would say to such a statement Rich, and our President; maybe i should twitter feed this post to his presidential twitter page him and see how he feels.


billygatez

Aren’t the Military serving the public for your freedom; just calling them all public servants Perverts? Your police department, firemen and women, school teachers, your mail-men and women, your Doctors, lawyers, judges, surveyors, water treatment workers? Should i go on Rich, or should you think before you type?


non_sequitur

As if any one of us care what the “presidential twitter page” thinks. FFS. Are you even in the same reality? The president has no sway in anything anymore.

According to the details of the story so far, he was doing this on his off-time at home. This isn’t the county’s fault and I would guess that if the county instituted a more invasive background check program to screen applicants’ personal lives and private data, that you would be pissed about that too.


I think this is awful, this guy should be prosecuted fully, and I sincerely hope the children in those videos are found and rescued from that hell. You, however, found this as an opportunity to complain about the county government, taking the focus away from where it ought to be.

Public employees are notorious for having too much “free time” on their hands…one only has to look at their productivity level…thus the assumption that a bit of this illegal behavior was conducted while on company time….


non_sequitur

You must be kidding. Public employees are subject to much harsher regulation than most of us private sector folks, they get paid crap and usualy working conditions are less than optimal. They do get a good retirement, but twilight years are not what we live for, or do we?

America is in trouble due to many turning their backs on God and His Commandments. Pornography exploiting our precious children is an abomination and it is becoming the norm.


“But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.” Matthew 18:6


God have mercy on America!


kettle

No, America is in trouble because of the loss of objective reasoning. Belief in magic sky fairys, including the total cop out, that someone else’s genuflecting can somehow prevent a pervert.


And if we take a look at the priest scandals we can see that genuflecting and magic sky fairys don’t stop pedos……


And then you go suggesting the villagers should just kill the suspect “that a millstone should be hanged about his neck” without a trial? This is America, we have standards, low standards but still, we are better than that.

Rich in MB

The left is normalizing Child Porn and Molestation…love is love they say….


MrYan

Hey hey…Rich Rich…how..how ….about about….getting getting …out out…. of of… your your…. own own …..ECHO ECHO …..chamber chamber?


Have you ever met a liberal? A real one, not a straw man who can’t fight back?


The sad fact is that you WANT to believe what you write.


Your posts say so much about you, and so little about the left.


You project your inner thoughts onto the other side almost as well as our current president.


non_sequitur

Agreed. Rich, you are attemting to normalize stupidity. If the puppet you put into the White House can’t do it, you won’t be able to either.


Chinaski

Of your hundreds of ridiculous posts on this site, this may just be your most moronic to date. You take an article about an alleged scumbag and twist it to fit your tired, dimwitted agenda. No connection, no logic, no instigation.

Read a book, climb a mountain, get some perspective man.


UnReasoned

The bible has little bearing on this. There is no commandment against pedophilia specifically. There are several stories in there that seem to condone sex with minors. Those who claim to be (or at least think themselves to be) close to god are just as capable of this behavior as the rest of the population, just look at the Catholic Church’s sexual abuse scandals.


People do terrible things. It seems as prevalent now as it ever has been. Only now we get to hear about every atrocity from all over the globe. It can be hard to take sometimes…
