People need to stop calling in child porn - it's child rape.

Maybe it’s because they are locals? If any of the 32 were foreigners, NGOs would be on the government in an instant to get them arrested.

Double standards extends to other areas as well. Child porn, sex workers, beating one’s wife in public, etc. One set of rules for the foreigners, another set for the locals.

Their crime it seems, is that the US embassy is holding them to same standard that it holds all of its workers.

Being the US government, these security personnel must have had training and signed papers about what is and is not allowed.

The local government’s response speaks volumes. It’s not a crime if you are a local. That allowing an anti-US protest with elections around the corner.

BTW, the consulate staff is overworked and undermanned. 7 Windows for customers, including the processing window when I went in (2 days in a row). Maybe 2 or 3 Staff. Had the same guy twice. No lack of security. 4-5 at the front, couple more inside. Special personal to walk each person from the gate into the building.
