Gee nice people running universities... Penn State and now this...

University of Michigan officials didn't report child porn to police for 6 months

Last May, a resident physician at University of Michigan Hospital found a disturbing image on a thumb drive that was left in a locked lounge where residents work in the Pediatric Emergency Department.

It was a photograph of a “nude adult lying” on a young child whose arms "were bound" and appeared to be tied to a bed frame, university police records show.

The resident viewed several files on the drive that was left in the hospital computer she was using as she attempted to identify its owner. She suspected it might belong to another resident physician after opening a document with his name on it, records show.

She panicked, left the drive in the computer and went home because her shift was over. When she returned the next morning to file a report, the drive was no longer in the computer. She spoke with her supervisors and met with hospital security officials, sharing what she had seen and showing them the computer. She also met with the Office of the General Counsel and told them about it.

“I was told a few days after making the report that the matter was closed.” she recalled, according to court records recently unsealed in the case.

University officials waited another six months before reporting the child porn to university police.

So they have no proof other than a possibly revengeful co worker. No story here as far as I can see

Six months - I wonder whether they were studying the photographs. Why are Children so unprotected. There should be no questioning the protection of Children.

My guess is that they took six months to get their story right before they approached the Police. I wonder how many people, involved in waiting the six months - were parents. I bet if it was their Child in the photograph they would want Police action immediately. Then again some parents make you go hmmmm....

Much Peace...
