Would He Have Edited His Own Conduct If It Were In a Movie?

According to CBS News, Daniel Thompson, a man who used to run a business editing feature films to remove conduct inappropriate for children has been arrested on suspicion of having sex with children.

Allegedly, in a great show of hyprocrisy (and cheapness) he paid two 14-year-old girls a total of $20 to perform oral sex on him.

Do I even need to say why this man is a hypocrite (if he's guilty of these acts, of course)?

Because while he discouraged others from viewing "dirty"* behavior in movies, he actually engaged in "dirty" behavior. Thompson's behavior, in fact, indicates that he is unable to realize that having sex with children is more harmful to children than bad words on television are.

Welcome, Mr. Thompson, to the Hypocrisy Hall of Shame.

*Apparently, there's a real market for this sort of thing. (Er, editing movies that is). Observe this happy heterosexual-led nuclear family enjoying an evening of smut-free movie fun!

That's right folks, get ClearPlay now! Because shielding your children from profanity, violence, and nudity in movies means they will never have to encounter these 'evils' in real life!

(Shoutout to John for the heads-up on this one!)

[UPDATE: Apparently, The CBS story in the above link wrongly stated that Thompson managed a "Clean Flicks" store. The Clean Flicks company is now saying that Thompson has been wrongly using their name and trademark without permission and that he has never been an agent or manager for the company.

Adding weight to the claim that Thompson is a hypocrite, however, Thompson is still linked to a "Flix Club store, which his police report says was really a cover for a pornography studio. And, he allegedly asked the two teenagers to be a in a pornographic movie.]
