What's Worse Than A Porn-Laden iPod?

What's Worse Than A Porn-Laden iPod?

What's worse than a little girl receiving a porn-laden iPod for Christmas?  How about one with a bizarre rant that looks like something out of a Batman movie?

The message is more or less a rant about “capitalist garbage” and “reclaiming your mind from the media shackles” according to reports.

"Jay Ellis, the girls father, returned the ipod to the Germantown, Md. Wal-Mart store where he purchased it. The store manger told him that another customer returned an iPod with a similar issue."

An iPod stuffed with porn, or a psychotic rant.  That's a tough choice.

Psychotic rant. As the father of the girl who received the porn-laden MP3 player said, it's gonna be some time before she can forget those images.

I could not agree more, Iria.  I have a 7 year old daughter and a 10 year old boy.  If my daughter was exposed to that, I would be hunting down the scumbag that put that garbage on the machine.  I doubt I would be setting much of a good example with that idiot either, once I found them.  Actually, maybe a lawyer could rip that person to shreds even better than I could?  Now there's an idea...

How about people do their job as parents and maby check the ipod for this kind of stuff or, GOD FORBID, something like this does happen and you TALK to your kids about the stuff they herd and explain to them why you don't want them listening to that instead of itching to sue somebody over the incident. I just find it amazing how parents are raising such hypersensitive kids.

sorry dude normally i'd agree with that stance but when i buy a new product i expect it to be *gasp* new.  if i bought a used ipod for my kid i sure as hell would check it out first but in this instance the company has failed by selling (and probably repackaging) a tainted product.

I thought about that as well when I made my post but forgot to mention it.  Agreed, there was a definite failure on the parent there but on a shrink-wrapped item, you can't find as much fault with them.  Regardless, you have to be vigilant as a parent these days.  There's a definite breakdown in society of epidemic proportions in that regard; parents not being a parent at all.  I'm not sure I know enough about this story to judge on that though.

Hi All,

As someone who is to be Married in 2008 I have to confess I'm somewhat gunshy about having Kids. My Fiance wants Kids, She loves them as do I. However, Kids are a awesome responsibility. In my job I all to often see what the lack of Parental supervision can result in. Society has definitely taken a turn for the worse & while I hope I'm wrong, it's only going to get worse. Unless decent Folk are willing to make a stand againts  crap like stores repackaging used & tainted products & selling them as new it'll only continue to happen. Porn is a epidemic, & we must protect our Children from it. A line must be drawn where that kind of crap won't be tolerated. Period.

Sorry for the rant.

Thats the problem with phones, ipods etc being returned and "refurbished" from the manufacturer, or even just repackaged. I've gotten cellphones with listings of london escorts and numbers still in the contact list. I'd be so pissed if that happened to my daughter.
