‘Incredibly disturbing’: Former reserve deputy gets probation for child porn — after facing potential life term in prison

Published

on

A former reserve deputy in Oklahoma avoided prison after his conviction on a pair of child pornography charges.

Jonathan Hazer was sentenced Wednesday in Cleveland County court after pleading guilty last month to one count of aggravated possession of child pornography and possession of child pornography, but he won’t have to spend any time in prison, reported KFOR-TV.

The 32-year-old Hazer was facing a possible life sentence for aggravated possession of child pornography and up to 20 years for possession of child pornography, and prosecutors recommended two years in prison.

Instead, the judge imposed a 10-year suspended sentence for the aggravated count and five years suspended on the second count that will run concurrently.

Hazer must comply with the terms of his probation for 10 years or risk going to prison.

The state cannot appeal the sentence, and prosecutors and victim’s advocates are disappointed with the punishment.

“Incredibly disturbing,” said Stacy McNeiland, CEO of the Care Center in Oklahoma City. “Likely, those images will never go away, and they will circulate the dark webs or inter webs for years and years and years so every child, every image of that child continues to be re-victimized every single time it’s viewed.”

Norman police found several images of child pornography on Hazer’s iPad and laptop, which were seized in February.

Hazer served as an unpaid Cleveland County sheriff’s reserve deputy from 2014 to 2016.

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
