My Neighbor, The Kiddie Porn Terrorist

You know, I have the most interesting neighbors here in downtown. Such a colorful lot. Take for example, this guy, who lives in the Mosaic building a block away. Apparently a nice middle eastern man building a weapons cache in his apartment, complete with rocket launcher! Oh, there was also some kiddie porn. Nice.

I read about that in an online paper; that was only a block away from you?!
It really is a small world...

As for the kiddie porn, there is an old Arabic proverb:
A woman for breeding, a goat for convenience, and a boy for fun.

They need to throw away the key.

Did they find rockets? No.
Were the guns illegal? No.
Were the Genades live? No.
Did they really find kiddy porn? Maybe but they are not sure... so thats a No for now.

How much you wanna bet his name ain't Smith or Jones? I bet this is all a case of terror-phobia. 'Cause them there a-rabs just wanna blow us up and hump our babies.

I would expect a terrorist would try to keep "Dateline" from entraping him. I'm awaiting the tru story to be released any day now.

If so ...

Gavin, I see your point. But counselor, you have to admit its just a wee bit odd to have a rocket launcher, semi automatic weapons, grenade casings in such quantities in your apartment. Keep in mind dude just moved in over the weekend, so why would those items be the first unpacked? That he is Arab, traveling frequently to the middle east, notwithstanding, its still odd.

According to local police there was child pornography at the site.

Yes and no, the Mosiac building faces mine but its obscured by another building :)

Where does it say he just moved in? What I read this morning is: "As of 6 pm, authorities had not yet arrested anyone, but were searching for the tenant of the apartment. Authorities tell us the tenant travels to the Middle East frequently and just returned from there this morning." So it sounds like he has lived there for a while and travels frequently.

He is one of three things
A terrorist
Not - guilty
A pedophile

He cant be all three.
I'm leaning for the Not-Guilty. I'd like to know how this story turns out.

Im not at all following the connection between his frequent travels to the mid. east and how long he has lived at Mosaic, lol.

First, Mosaic just opened. Of the two connected buildings only one building is open and in that building only floors 1-18 are liveable, floors 19-32 are still under construction, so he physcially could not have lived there long.

Second, I live next door and know the building manager, who I would trust to give me better information than you will be able to gleen from the media. (Frankly I consider all news media to be 50% accurate at best, and thats when there is no propoganda involved :) This is how I know his name, his unit number, his move in date and how suspicious the surroundings are.

Jim, I think the building manager is pretty reliable source... The usually know everything there is to know about the place.

And Gavin, the guy can be both a terrorist and a pedophile.
