Strange News: Man Arrested for Watching Child Porn on Delta Flight

Here’s some advice. If you’re going to possess child pornography – which under federal law is punishable by up to 40 years in prison and possible permanent detention if you’re determined to be a violent sexual predator – then it’s a good idea not to watch that child pornography on a cross country airline flight.

According to the Associated Press:

Massachusetts State Police say a 47-year-old [man] was sitting in first class Saturday afternoon when a fellow passenger saw the pornographic images on [his] laptop and alerted the flight crew. When the Delta flight landed at Boston Logan International Airport just after 4 p.m., troopers interviewed [the man] and subsequently arrested him.
