Danbury Man Charged in Statewide Child Pornography Dragnet

Danbury man among 18 suspects arrested in a statewide investigation.

A Danbury resident is facing child pornography charges after being arrested Thursday as part of a statewide Connecticut State Police sweep.

According to state police, detectives from the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit, assisted by members of the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations and Sex Offenders Unit, conducted an arrest warrant sweep across the state on Thursday, March 27. 

"After several lengthy and thorough investigations, 18 people from across the state were arrested," state police said in a press release. The Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Investigations Unit is also the command for Connecticut’s Internet Crimes Against Children’s Task Force. 

Tyler Czardo, 23, of 6th Street, Danbury, was charged with possession of child pornography in the first degree and promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

Bond was set at $50,000 and he's scheduled to appear April 14 in Danbury Superior Court.

According to former Danbury Police Officer Thomas Hollister, there were city school staff involved in this kind of scheme and not always caught - in fact one central office administrator was fired & another school principal still lurks at city school. Hollister always said these people are sick people.

Be Careful! Anyone considering arguing against burning witches at the stake to a mob bent on lighting the fire might regret it. No matter how rational and truthful your arguments may be, many would like to tie you up beside the witch and put a sign around your neck that reads "PEDOPHILE!" How else can they defend their mob mentality that says it is right to put people in jail for 20+ years for the thought crime of looking at dirty pictures? Have we lost our minds? America is a sick society with a sick congress that enacted laws to appease powerful religious lobbies bent on keeping children from the sin of sex. Just look at the history of child porn legislation and how congress had to declare depictions of children engaged in sex is harmful because science did not back up such a conclusion. And now, in the name of protecting children we are putting children in jail for sexting to other children. And as our children look out upon the sick society that unconstitutionally criminalizes the right of children to behave sexually, far too many are driven into mental distress and even suicide as they wonder what’s wrong with them. How come they enjoy sex when it is supposed to be traumatic with lifelong mental damage for anyone under 18? Consider which picture does the most harm. A picture of a child enjoying their sexuality or a picture depicting their mug-shot at the local police station.
