Your friendly 55-year-old neighbor in Farmington Hills

Steven Price of Farmington Hills, Oakland County, faces 200 years for child porn. https://www.radio.com/wwjnewsradio/news/local/farmington-hills-man-faces-200-years-in-prison-for-child-por. A tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided to the Michigan State Police lead to the arrest. https://www.hometownlife.com/story/news/local/farmington-hills/2020/12/04/farmington-hills-man-arrested-charged-child-porn-sting/3799046001/ .

While I am glad to read that the Michigan State Police has a task force devoted to internet crimes against children, this man has to be the tip of the iceberg. As a reader pointed out, where is the sting?? Compare the Genessee County Sheriff’s Office–https://www.wnem.com/news/sheriff-releases-more-information-related-to-ghost-operation/article_0e4f78ca-e245-11ea-897e-43b8690fb3d2.html.

If this blog has conveyed anything, it is that Oakland County, Michigan was a hotbed of pedophelia and child porn at the time of the OCCK crimes. I seriously doubt that over the decades, with the explosion of internet crimes against children, that there is any less of it in Oakland County as of today. In Oakland County a lot of these men have the patina of “model citizen”–they certainly are not outwardly a Greg Greene, making it harder for residents there to understand or accept the underbelly there.

    It looks like this guy has a name change in his past. And has a son and granddaughter. Way to go, grandpa.

    55? Farmington Hills?
    Wonder if he attended Our Lady of Sorrows?
    Gary Berthiaume back in Michigan with charges again after 43 years?
    Connection?
    When Gary Kedzierski, a victim of Gary Berthiaume, went on to be involved in child pornography……

        I attended Bishop Foley High School in Madison Heights when Robert Haener was principal there. This was in 1967 and their were allegations about him then of a sexual scandal involving the boys who attended this school. Think about the fact that he was not dismissed until the 1990’s…. that’s over 20 years that this pig was allowed to have access to children!

          Appalling and horrific. The Keepers is 2017 documentary on Netflix and is a very intense look at how the Catholic church played this game for decades (probably in some form forever). The Catholic church in the United States should be forced to liquidate all of its assets and pay huge settlements to the many, many victims of priest sexual abuse. No statute of limitations, no nondisclosure agreements. If you are a Catholic and are putting money in the basket every week, part of that money already goes toward legal fees and settlements incurred because of these monsters. Catholics apparently believe in a merciful God, but not merciful priests who showed no mercy to young victims and were shielded from any consequences.

    “These are offenders that use their ability to live as I said among society.” Nothing has changed there. This could have been written in 1976/77. It could be the creepy neighbor next door, it could be a firefighter. It could be your father.
