Police say a burglar in southern Spain who stole an old Super 8 camera and tapes from a home discovered to his horror the graphic video content of a man sexually abusing boys.



The burglar put three tapes in a brown envelope, hid them under a parked car, and then called police from a public phone, directing them to go find it.



The suspect is a local football (soccer) coach who lived alone. He lured some of his young players into watching pornographic videos together, and then sexually abused them, police said.

Good for him.

Believe it or not, even among criminals, there is a line you don't cross, for most.
Why do you think child molesters are targeted in prisons?

Sounds like that new show "The End of the F**king World".

Crime doesn’t pay... they say...

While I imagine this burglar will now forever be emotionally scarred due to what he saw...

It ends with a paedo caught red handed.



I do hope the burglar is not charged for his crime.

As long as they are not of the ham variety.

Crooks outing other crooks.

There's no honor among crooks.

Set a crook to catch a crook.

Maybe the burglar was a cop, who got a report of child molestation but no evidence, so the cop broke into the perverts home, stole the tapes, then put them under the car, and called the cop's hotline, then went to retrieve the tapes, all the while pretending the caller was anonymous. That's how they do it in the movies, anyway.

That kind of labelling paints them on an equal setting...
I also think crook is far too kind a word to use in description of a child molester.


There's no honor among crooks.


This is one of those rare moments where I assume nobody gives a sh*t about honour among crooks.
I’d even go as far as to say, in a situation like this, there is no more honourable an action than to expose filth like this.


That's how they do it in the movies, anyway.


Doesn’t sound familiar.

Bollywood, perhaps?
They have quite a few “out-there” story lines.

There are so many Hollywood movies, where the cop gets evidence illegally, and then arranges for it to find it's way into legal channels so that it can be used in court, it's not hard to find a Western Movie with this theme.

It was a joke, AMP...
There was not a shred of seriousness in that final part of my post.


However...

You’ve made me wonder now...
Is there any chance that this video and camera evidence could be inadmissible in a trial due to how it was procured?

I hate to say it, but there must no doubt be a loophole in the Law in regards to evidence being handed in to police after it was stolen?

A case such as this was probably never even considered, but I’d be surprised if there wasn’t a such a loophole to prevent police from working covertly with thieves in narcotics and weapons investigations, for example.



I do sincerely hope this doesn’t damage any attempt to convict!

He took that job to be near young boys. Just like Church Summer Camp counselors, Boy Scout Masters, Coaches, Juvenile facility counselors, Priests...

be wares parents, know who is 'taking care' of your kids.

My question is, why would a burglar steal a super 8 camera and a bunch of tapes??

Although the exclusionary rule based on Fourth Amendment protection is perhaps the most commonly known, courts also exclude relevant evidence based on other constitutional protections, such as confessions given involuntarily7 and statements made when a proper Miranda warning has not been given.8 However, these exclusionary rules are limited to governmental actors and therefore are not considered applicable to civil actions9 nor to criminal prosecutions in which the offered evidence has been unlawfully obtained by a private person.


I’m not sure how legit this site is, couldn’t find many with the search terms I used, but it claims that the evidence would not automatically be ruled inadmissible.

I hope that is true.

The first thing I asked myself was what is the use of a non-digital camera to a thief in this day and age...
But I truly cannot speak for Spanish society... so I left it.

You’re not alone in your thoughts though.

I would think it depends on the defense lawyer's abilities to construct an argument showing how illegally obtained evidence must be thrown out given demonstrated similarity to some prior cases.

This is all about how expensive a lawyer the defense can afford.

The case can go either way.
