Parents, neighbors react to teacher’s aide arrest for exposing genitals to child

Parents and neighbors said they were shocked Tuesday to learn that a teacher’s aide is facing charges for exposing himself to a child with disabilities.

Beloit police, along with Wisconsin Internet Crimes Against Children, arrested 45-year-old Scott Swanson on Monday morning in the parking lot of The Richardson School.

Capt. Dan Molland said officials arrested Swanson before he went to work. He was employed at The Richardson School as a teacher’s aide. Police said Swanson exposed his genitalia to a 17-year-old who has behavioral and mental-health disabilities.

“I feel surprised, shocked, that a person that’s an authority and trusted could pull something like this,” said Valerie Melson, who lives across the street from the school.

The latter vests the investigative agencies with the right to block websites, monitor personal emails, SMS, as well as Viber and WhatsApp messages – and all those measures aim to ensure efficient fight against child pornography and terrorism.

Official Chișinău is looking forward to the Venice Commission’s final conclusion on the aforesaid bill.

However, the experts ring the alarm bells, claiming that the bill is nothing but an attempt to impose censorship on the Internet.

A former professor of epidemiology at Emory University was sentenced to six years and six months in federal prison and must pay a $15,000 fine for downloading at least 8,000 images of child pornography using the campus Wi-Fi, AJC.com reported. The professor, Kevin M.
