    I don't usually say this about people dying but this is one person I doubt many apart from his family will shed a tear over. The lawyer is making it out as if he forgot to pay his taxes for a few years when in fact what he did was one of the vilest things a person can do.

    Child porn is disgusting full stop but it wasn't just a couple of pictures. He had over 50,000 and some were top level. The only reason he stopped is that he was caught, not because he realised what he was doing was wrong. He then tried to plead not guilty because he thought he would get away with it. If people are gonna feel sorry for anyone, it should be those poor children that were in those images and not him.

    11:05 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us Salling's body was found hanging from a tree.
    10:45 AM PT -- We're told police received a call to do a "welfare check" on Salling and somehow that led them to the baseball field where his body was found. We're told Salling had been dead for some time.

    Just not to long ago I posted something about him in police blotter, well saves the tax payers money and money for him going to prison. I lost all respect for him when it came out he was up on child porn charges. I really liked him on Glee, and now....just no.

    When your into that kind of shit, there is no where else to go but out.
    To really know people is to be able to read between the lines on their faces.

    True yet we are getting all his friends/co-workers etc writing tweets saying we should feel sorry for the poor little love because of what he went through and surprise surprise, someone used the 'He did it because he was abused' excuse.

    If he was abused it makes it even worse because he knew what those kids went through yet still chose to do it.

    Appropriate behavior under the circumstances I'd say.
    Throwing feces.

    I had been wondering what would happen to him- I didn't see him lasting long in prison just because he's so pretty. It's a damn shame he turned out the way he did- he really had a lot of talent.

    When I heard the news, I was pissed off. Not because I liked the guy, but because a lot of impressionable teenagers did and now they will think that suicide is an acceptable solution to seemingly overwhelming problems. What a coward this guy was. He could have done his prison time, then written a book on how he got into child porn, his experiences in jail and how he (hopefully) recovered. Everyone loves a comeback.

    The other thing that bothers me about this story is that apparently he had attempted suicide before and those around him knew that he was seriously depressed. Why the hell didn't they take steps to prevent this from happening, like putting him in protective custody or doing a 5150 (aka involuntary psychiatric hold at a medical/mental facility)? Who knows, maybe they did, and if you really do want to die, you will find a way. But it just seems too weird. And yes, the fact that he was near a Little League field where he committed suicide? Maybe he was actually engaged in autoerotic stimulation and not suicide?
    Any day above ground is a good day.

    He was going to receive a slap on the wrist, a mere 4-5 years is not really a long haul considering the heinous crime of having an over abundance of child porn.

    i feel ashamed to admit i was secretly pleased he ended it. there is no redemption for someone so sick. i can only hope they can find out more information from his computer as to who he was sharing these disgusting abusive photos with and where he acquired them.

    he was also abusive to his girlfriends. just an all around evil asshole. i'm sorry.

    One has to take responsibility for their actions but previous abuse can lead to further abuse. One can not use it to justify abuse of others but it does happen. Back many years ago we turned out many broken individuals that went through our orphanages.

    Today it's hard to think about someone with his privileges not seeking out treatment but I imagine it's not easy to own up to.

    I don't know how to feel about this. He was my favorite character on Glee as Puckerman but on the other side, he was also a pedo. I guess the media shift on his pedo being was too much to bear. But I heard he just kept pictures of kids and was not apparently involved in the production or creation of those pics or videos.

    Welcome to the forum, black.
    Indirectly, he was responsible for them.
    Producing them - liking them - same sickness; different manifestations, IMO.
    I think he found the appropriate cure.
