31-year-old David Robinson of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania is in a lot of hot water, to say the least. He’s facing 50 felony charges related to child porn among others after several law enforcement agencies raided his home. They had received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone with the username of ‘gamecube305’ was allegedly sharing child porn on mobile messaging app Kik.
At first, Robinson was said to have denied sharing child porn on Kik until investigators matched the surroundings of Robinson’s home to those in the images. This led investigators to determine that Robinson allegedly molested a 9-month-old infant and shared that on Kik.
After Robinson was already in custody he reportedly told investigators that he made child porn to catch other child porn collectors on Kik.
In a follow-up interview at the police barracks, Robinson told investigators that he had heard that people share child pornography on Kik. He decided he “wanted to gain the trust of persons with child pornography so that he could call someone and report it,” according to court records.
I realize that when people find themselves in desperate situations they’ll say the damndest things to get them out of trouble, but come on. Did he honestly think that police were just going to let him go after that explanation? “Sorry to bother you sir, please go on about your business.”
If it wasn’t for the fact that there was a real child victimized in all of this, it would almost be comical.
