Bin Laden replaced on FBI most wanted list

By Carol Cratty

A former private school teacher and camp counselor facing child pornography charges was added to the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list Tuesday.

The May 2011 raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan which killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden opened up the spot on the Top Ten list which Toth now fills.

Eric Justin Toth, also known as David Bussone, was a third grade teacher at the National Cathedral's Beauvoir school in Washington, D.C., in 2008 when pornographic images were found on a school camera that had allegedly been in his possession. Toth went missing while the initial investigation was under way.  He was later indicted in Washington for possession of child pornography and in Maryland for production of child pornography.

"There is no comparison to be made between Toth and bin Laden," said FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jacqueline Maguire. "  Although Eric Toth has not murdered anyone and he is not an international terrorist, that does not mean he isn't dangerous."

    Doubling up counted by including a 18 year old not in school? So if your child is 17 one month and 18 the next, then this truly is a doubled up household? What was the trend in this for the nonrecession periods? Pretty strange definition. 行動電源推薦

    Reblogged this on luvsiesous and commented:
    The FBI replaced Osama with Toth.

    From hunting terrorists to hunting school teachers?

    OK, I didn't think it was the FBI's job to 'hunt' bin Laden. And it IS their job to hunt American criminals. And it looks like this guy is one of those gays sneaking into our schools hurting little kids.

    But, is he really on the 10 most wanted list? With all the gang violence, all the child porno rings, and all the drug running, we replaced Osama with a teacher?

    Odd. I thought it was odd that Osama stayed on the 10 most wanted list.

    Maybe I am the reason they updated the list.

    But, don't the FBI have a good idea of who the 50 worst criminals are at any given time? Don't they know their business (busting bad guys) well enough that they could replace Osama in two days? Or with Federal red tape, two weeks?



    But, at least we got rid of bin Laden.

    Next lets get Toth. Although I do hope they catch him alive instead of assassinating him ....

      Guys, chizzlin sam in particular, don't be stupid! Those terrorists deserve what Bush gave them in Cuba. Honestly I think we should have gone the extra mile and fed them pork, or not let them do their religious acts. I don't hate Muslims, I hate the ones who try and say the Koran says its okay to steal a plane and fly it into buildings killing hundreds. Its disgusting that Obama decided to shut it down, and most of the terrorists we have captured just get off with nothing but a slap on the wrist. Its also sad that your getting called out by a freshman in high school. Sorry but don't just spout off with political ignorance. It never mentioned Bush, Cheney, Powell, or Rice in that. Just that a pedophile pig replaced a pig whom was killed for harming our country.
      Alex–why dose Osama deserve any sort of trial? He is a war criminal, our countries at war, he was found and killed. He got a better deal then he deserved. He should've been captured and tortured until every shread of information was torn from his mind. Then, after he told us every little detail, he should've been exicuted.

    Who decides who's on the list and who's not? I take it that the guilt of those on the list has not been proven yet because they haven't faced trial. So how is it possible to destroy a person's name and reputation of a technically not guilty person. Remember, they are all innocent until proven guilty (including Osama who was "executed" or murdered without facing trial.

    Question - can the Bin Laden family now sue the U.S. government in court for killing their family member? Can criminal charges be laid against Obama for ordering and authorizing the killing? That would be quite a precedent in the international law practice. Or are the laws not the same for the U.S. President?

      dude we have so much evidence against him it's stupid not only was he an immigrant for coming into our country but he bombed buildings, killed thousands, started a god damn war, and he ran from all authority. If that doesn't give us the right to kill him then I don't know what would. and on top of that you know just as well as I do that if the specials ops team wouldn't have killed him then he would have killed them.

    Bin Laden was never "wanted" for 9/11. Why not?

    Total crap. Guess the FBI is losing focus. There's absolutely no comparison and the guy shouldn't make the top 100 list.
