Wow, I'm not sure how sentencing works for that kind of thing, but if it doesn't have a maximum penalty then I very well could get a life sentence if I were ever charged for it. I guess that means that since I already would have a life sentence, there's no harm in watching more of it. Let's hope the US doesn't ever take it that far.

Okay, I gotta admit that is pretty dumb. He should probably lose his job but I still don't think he deserves a jail sentence.


He likely used the military's computers, and PC misuse is known to result in stiff penalties. Using any kind of government-issued device to access porn (and even dating sites) is strictly forbidden, and may result in disciplinary and/or criminal actions. Canada's attitude towards PC misuse is inspired by the UK's Computer Misuse Act 1990, which has a penalty of up to two years of prison time. The guy is lucky that he only has to face about two months in jail.


Agreed. I can see him serving time for misuse of government property but I still don't think he should be serving it for watching hentai.

don't watch animated porn containing children then. like duh. lolicons/shotacons are pretty much pedophiles, doesn't matter if it's "just a cartoon" they're children. like why do i even have to explain this. y'all nasty. it doesn't matter if you're disgusted by it irl either. stop fetishizing prepubescent children and maybe you'll seem a little less creepy


There's a difference between fantasizing children and lolis/shotas. A pedophile is one actually doing so as while someone who isn't just likes the fantasy of it and like keeping it that way. If you know how to separate real life and the fictional and if you can't then go away from it. Everyone has something they fantasize about.

i understand that but still, there's a point where people's fantasies can no longer be fulfilled and they murder/rape/rob/etc someone. maybe none of those people will do it, maybe i'm just being paranoid. but it's still a very real factor that can set off red flags for a person's personality. can't change my mind that i think it's odd and creepy. sure, people fantasize about some crazy shit like murdering people and the thought of cannibalizing their loved one.. the more power to them, but keep me out of that freaky shit. besides, this guy did this shit in a public place. soooooo it was still wrong. look at your freaky porn at home.

i'm just pointing out that this shit can be pointers to future accidents, or it couldn't it all depends. this isn't my fault or problem. it's a fact and we can't control how the law looks at this. but this is only when it's extreme. i personally don't think loli/shota is right, but i hope people know the consequences and shit of looking at and thinking of stuff like that. most of the time, people aren't sick in the mind... but some people very may well be.

enjoy whatever porn you like, but don't let it cross into your real life

and i'm only using the most extreme examples anyway. i doubt most of the people who look at this stuff would commit a horrible crime like that. but it's understandable that the law would step in when they find someone looking at that type of stuff.

so your telling me... i can go to jail... for touching my penis... to a drawing of a cute girl.. being ravaged by tentacles?

ok...


wait though.. how the fuck did he get caught? so i know... how to not fuck my life up.

i wonder if a hentai with rape will become criminalized and people will be put in prison as accessories to rape for not jumping into their computer screens to save the victim

He watched in public. On a military base. If rape porn is legal, then anime with rape should be fine.

and at this point.. i ask myself.. why has my country fallen to the point it allows such stupid people into the military.

he should have been arrested for being stupid, instead of having the label "sex offender" thrown on him.

I saw someone post before that he should be charged with misuse of government property instead of child pornography

I agree it's strange and creepy but ultimately watching child hentai doesn't harm anyone. Since there are no real people being being harmed I don't see how a crime can be committed. That's the way of things though. He should have been more mindful of the law. Sixty days is not a harsh sentence, but 10 years as a sex offender? Pretty brutal.

So are you telling me that even an innocent children's drawing could be considered illegal if there's a representation of underage peoples genitals? What about the photo about the naked Vietnamese girl running away from her village after it got bombed?(I saw it on the front page of MSN last year and its considered a historic photo) What about documentaries about the people that live in the Amazon Forest? A lot of naked children appear in those. The prosecutors definition of child pornography is to wide. Even the innocent picture my parents took of me taking a bath when I was three could be considered child pornography. I don't know about Canadian law, but it seems to me that they need to update it and name something specific



For those interested in understanding the law used to charge Regis Tremblay, i quote and post a link to it below from wikipedia.




Canadian laws addressing this are included in the C-46 amended Canadian Criminal Code passed in 1985. It is described under Part V: Sexual Offences, Public Morals and Disordery Conduct: Offences Tending to Corrupt Morals. Section 163.1 defines child pornography to include "a visual representation, whether or not it was made by electronic or mechanical means", that "shows a person who is or is depicted as being under the age of eighteen years and is engaged in or is depicted as engaged in explicit sexual activity", or "the dominant characteristic of which is the depiction, for a sexual purpose, of a sexual organ or the anal region of a person under the age of eighteen years". The definitive Supreme Court of Canada decision, R. v. Sharpe, interprets the statute to include purely fictional material even when no real children were involved in its production.
