Well.

I'm glad they waited until after the court proceeding was over to decide whether to remove the dog.  I feel bad that he's facing more of a punishment than a non-disabled person would face for the same offense, but at the same time I do kind of see their point about removing the dog.

Just an ugly situation all around.

The defense of "I couldn't see how old they were" doesn't hold water when some of the images were of children as young as three years old.

Honestly, if a person is going to use their disability to try and justify "mistaking" child pornography for the rest of the totally legal adult smut on the internet, I think they deserve to lose their guide dog because I agree, a dog is an enticing prop to a child and makes him visibly appear much more welcoming and defenseless than if he had a cane. It also gives him reason to be hanging out at parks, lakes, and other places children play because he could say his guide dog enjoyed it. Honestly, if you try and use your disability as an excuse to avoid punishment, you deserve the flip side of the coin IMO.
