The Seattle Times is reporting that a convicted sex offender was busted recently after he placed pornographic pictures on cars parked at Burien City Hall in August and September.

The offender, Noah Nelson, 31, was charged this week with both possessing child pornography as well as cyberstalking.

The Times reports that in September:

Nelson was caught on a security camera driving up to cars on his scooter and leaving porn on the cars of strangers, according to court charging paperwork.

Burien police installed the hidden camera in the city parking garage after the pictures were left on the car of Finance Director Gary Coleman and other city employees.

    So, Noah Nelson sounds like a dangerous idiot, and it is probably a good idea to keep him off the streets, if possible. However, is it even illegal to put porn on people’s windshields? Did Burien Police respond with a hidden camera because there was some actual threat to public safety? Or did they spring into action because dirty pictures were placed on the cars of public officials?

    I have been asking for a camera or two in the local park where actual crime has been documented and has been happening regularly for five years. I have been told that it is not in the budget. My argument has been that the cost of a camera is probably less than the cost of damage and loss due to crime, but my arguments have fallen on deaf ears. If you are the Finance Director and you sign the checks, Burien police will assign detectives and hidden cameras to protect you from dirty pictures. It’s nice to know where we stand.

      Now that the danger is passed and they have an extra camera, maybe they’ll take that camera and put it in the park as you requested.

      Wait…..is that laughing I hear from City Hall?

    Interesting that it’s referred to as the City Hall parking lot- it’s also the library parking lot, which makes the activity seem somewhat less political and more disturbing.

    Personally, as a library patron who sometimes parks in the underground spaces when the top is full, I’m sort of glad to know there’s a camera down there now. It’s also probably substantially less costly to put a camera in a protected (nearly indoor) location with easy data network access than in an outdoor park away from city facilities.

    Did I read that right??? I copied and pasted this just to make sure.

    “Burien police installed the hidden camera in the city parking garage after the pictures were left on the car of Finance Director Gary Coleman and other city employees.”

    AFTER the pictures were left, AFTER,, so it`s okay to let the punks destroy our parks and say there is not enough money to put a camera whereabouts they dump all their shit but some perverted sex offender leaves a picture of a hairless dick on a city employees car and they install cameras????? Why?? Because they were offended??? WAH!!!!! HBO must really piss you off.
    WTF am I missing here. Maybe we should pay that pervert to come to the parks and post “pornographic” on the trees and cars at our parks and THEN maybe they might
    do something.. That1s what cyberstalking is huh?? Leaving pictures on a city employees car,,*lol* Is that what that is? I guess so,,
    Only I heard he wasn`t dressed like a nazi boy,, he had a plaid skirt on with white bobby socks and his hair tied back,.. It was just the shadow from the hidden camera`s angle that made it look like that…

    Whoa now! I thought Mr. Nelson was supposed to have a permit for distributing
    his materials! Guess we’ll have to ship him off to Puyallup! (snicker)

    It’s only too expensive when it doesn’t benefit those making the decision. I guess it is more important to have visibility of our politicians than our regular citizens or our parks where kids play at.

    I guess when you have to make a decision as a city you have to what…protect our own first, than if there is any money left we’ll think about our citizens?

    First of all, the Library/City Hall garage is not used exclusively by City employees. When I’ve been to the library and parked on the lower floor of the garage I’ve seen moms and dads with their children, young adults, older adults — they can’t all be City employees. And I believe the distribution of child pornography is a felony, so I can see why they wanted to catch the guy.

    But it is much more likely that the camera was installed to catch the person or persons breaking into cars and vandalizing the Library/City Hall parking garage. I’ve heard there have been numorous break-ins, and some mornings when I’ve gone to the library I’ve seen grafitti down there, and a couple of times it appears all the fire extinguishers have been emptied in the garage. In fact, while in the summer it was nice to leave my car in the coolness of the garage while I was at the library and/or farmers market, now I always look for upper deck or street parking first. I don’t want my car broken into down in the garage!
