Fallston Man Arrested for Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography

From the Harford County Child Advocacy Center:

A Harford County man was arrested and charged Tuesday afternoon after a Harford County Child Advocacy Center investigation developed evidence supporting charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

The suspect is identified as Alexander Nyce, 19, of Fallston, MD. He is charged with one count of possession and one count of distribution of child pornography.

Nyce was arrested without incident after investigators from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office, Maryland State Police, and ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) executed a search and seizure warrant at his residence.

The Harford County Child Advocacy Center became involved after receiving a tip from ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) regarding an unknown subject, later identified as Nyce, uploading an image of child pornography to an online messaging account.

During the search warrant at Nyce’s residence investigators recovered multiple items of computer equipment, personal electronics and digital storage media belonging to Nyce. Investigation is ongoing.

    Before I begin, I want everyone to know that I do not condone the abuse of children, child pornography or molestation and rape of any kind. That being said I have to point out that unless that messaging account allowed the contents of messages to be displayed publicly on the internet then this was a complete violation of the accused’s privacy. If the message was sent from one person with the explicit destination of another, then any monitoring or interception was illegal and unconstitutional. Homeland Security needs more supervision and over sight because their actions are beginning to seem more like State Terrorism than Law Enforcement. We as a people should not be governed by intimidation and not spied upon on by prying into our private activities online and by doing so have violated our 4th Amendment rights regarding our effects. When they violate the rights of one they have violated the rights of us all. Homeland Security needs to be reformed and retrained in what actions are legitimate as acting on their own they can not be trusted.

      Let’s break this down, shall we?

      “unless that messaging account allowed the contents of messages to be displayed publicly on the internet then this was a complete violation of the accused’s privacy.”

      False. When you send an e-mail, you are sharing that with the e-mail and internet service provider. When you search the web, you are sharing that information with the internet service provider, and a host of other sites / companies. This is why things like encryption, TOR gateways, etc… come into play when you want to “hide” your internet activities. While you do have a certain expectation of privacy, you have to remember that it is the “world wide web” and nothing on it is really “private”. Besides, the article clearly pointed out that they received a tip. That tip could have very well led to a court order to conduct a search history.

      “If the message was sent from one person with the explicit destination of another, then any monitoring or interception was illegal and unconstitutional.”

      Incorrect. You make simple assumptions that both parties are within the United States. What if he was sending Internationally, and that tip came from an outside country? For further explanation, see above regarding court order to conduct search.

      In fact, right here…in Paragraph 4…”executed a search and seizure warrant at his residence. “. Warrant = court order, but I am sure you are well aware of that.

      Furthermore, if you are storing that message on a company’s data storage (as in your email, etc…) then you have no right to privacy with that. Read the fine print when you sign up for that “free” email on the internet. At times, you really only need permission of the company who owns the data storage device to conduct that “legal and constitutional” search you are looking for.

      “Homeland Security needs more supervision and over sight because their actions are beginning to seem more like State Terrorism than Law Enforcement.”

      Quite a broad statement, why do you believe this is the case?

      “private activities online and by doing so have violated our 4th Amendment rights”

      Nothing…I repeat, NOTHING….you do “online” is private.

      Homeland Security needs to be reformed and retrained in what actions are legitimate as acting on their own they can not be trusted.

      Why say something to that affect in reaction to a single article about catching a potential sex offender?

        You are wrong on ALL accounts. I stand by what I said before. Everything you do has an expectancy of privacy if the activity occurs where one expects his activities to remain private. You are not just wrong, your mindset is that of a State Terrorist and of a traitor to the US constitution and the people of the United States. Homeland Security is acting under an unconstitutional law known as the “Patriot Act”, which just so happens to be the most unpatriotic governmental device ever forced onto the American population since we became a nation. I will admit, I don’t know all the details of the case, but if the message was sent from one person with the specific intent to be received by another, in a password protected tunnel of cyber space, then a 4th Amendment violation did occur. Unless of course, the recipient was an agent of the State or the US government. Law Enforcement acted on a TIP FROM HSI, no third party was mentioned. If the recipient was not an agent of the state or an informant, Homeland Security acted in total disregard of the 4th Amendment and ALL evidence should be ruled inadmissible. Just the opinion of a real American and not the terroristic ramblings of a traitor to the American people hiding under the guise of Law Enforcement’s unaccountability to the American people.

        E-mail is treated just like Postal mail. It’s private to the mailer and the recipient. If the recipient shares it with someone, then it is no longer private. Legally, no one or agency can just scan a e-mail server for something illegal without a warrant. It must be shared by the recipient to a law enforcement agency in order for it to be legally used to obtain a warrant. Yes, there is privacy regarding e-mail.

    No, the information I relayed was absolutely correct. The link you provided as reinforcement to your incorrect ramblings has nothing to do with this case. Regardless of what your opinion of my mindset is, I – unlike you – have more of a background in these matters, as opposed to completing my 5-minute Constitutional Law Degree from Google University. Try again – there are numerous rulings on this matter, and diving deeper to gain a bit more knowledge may help you sound like less of a rambling idiot. Facts matter, and you have presented NONE here.

    Nothing…I repeat AGAIN…nothing you do online is “private”. Hence the invention of tools such as TOR and other various means of concealing your identity online.

    You admitted that you don’t know all of the details of the case – yet you later mention that “no third party was mentioned”. When, in your vast criminal history, have you ever seen Law Enforcement publish a full account of the case on such a public forum? Especially so when the case is most likely still under investigation.

    If your definition of a “real American” is casting a shadow on any person or idea you find not to be in line with your own opinions, bashing law enforcement and the criminal justice system in light of the fact that things didn’t go your way, or simply using theories learned from Google, BING and the Washington Post to attempt to further your skewed views on reality…then, perhaps, I guess I’ll stick with the moniker “American Patriot” and not “real American”.

    By the way, there is an ANTIFA Rally in Baltimore later, you should attend – they are obviously like-minded individuals that may alter your day.

    You’re a complete liar. My criminal history is marijuana and defending myself against an organized crime syndicate and a terrorist organization. Homeland Security is a terrorist organization, period, end of discussion. YOU are NOT an American in your heart or soul, regardless of where YOU were born. An American believes in the Constitution and you don’t. Period. End of discussion. You do have privacy involving any electronic surveillance when you’re activities are conducted in a PLACE and with the INTENT of your activities remaining private. You have the mindset of a State Terrorist and of a traitor to the Constitution and the American people. Period. End of discussion. Have a nice day….. This argument is over as there is nothing more to discuss.

        Already covered that in the post from August 7, 2017 at 10:54 pm……. The discussion degenerated when it was declared that “nothing you do online is private”, which is false.

          ***sigh***

          Every internet action—clicking on a website, sending an email, downloading a song, posting a photo, or instant messaging—leaves a numerical identifying mark from the computer used, allowing the user’s activity to be tracked as he or she performs any online activity. Every time an individual makes an online purchase, searches for information on a personal health concern, reads a political blog, or sends an intimate message to a friend, that electronic action is identified by his or her Internet Protocol (“IP”) address and a record of the activity is captured and stored by the Internet Service Provider. Online activity can also be tracked by third-party software embedded in the web browsers used to navigate the internet. This software, more often than naught, usually comes from the OEM as part of the browser installation package.

          So, smart guy – nothing you do online is private. If you think that nobody can see what you are doing, just because they don’t have a warrant, you need to read more on the subject.

            https://internetlaw.uslegal.com/privacy/ – The Federal government used an act of International Terrorism to instill a policy of Domestic Terrorism amongst its own people. That policy is the Patriot Act and it is being used illegally and unconstitutionally by a plethora of government agencies. No law can be made that infringes upon the rights guaranteed by the constitution, unless it is an infamous crime such as murder, rape or treason. If the Federal agencies that use this unpatriotic act, want to not be known as an organized crime syndicate and a terrorist organization the constitution must be repealed. Let’s see congress pull that one out of their hat. They can’t, because ALL governing authority originates from that document as the charters of England are null and void. The government originates from the people and our government has forgotten that.

      Right, so because you Googled a few things, you are an expert in all things relating to Constitutional Law. Please. You, sir, have Z-E-R-O credibility when it comes to preaching to others about how you “think” something is illegal.

      First, as to what is in my heart…let’s discuss! I raised my right hand and took an oath to defend this country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I have fought in wars in Panama, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan and a few other places. I have scars from injuries sustained in battle on 4 different continents. I still have metal fragments floating around inside of me from IED’s. I got through it all, and still entered the civilian workforce in defense of this country. No, I am not a police officer (before you get all high and mighty about how unfair you were treated).

      I have done more in those years than you have probably done with your entire life. You sit in your underwear in your mother’s house and act as if The Dagger were your own personal Orioles game, where you call a play by play. Consistently over the past several months, anything to do with crime…here’s the “Soul Crusher” giving his unwarranted, unknowledgeable 2-cents. Most of the time you are close – but not entirely correct. I’ll give you that. Many times, however, you take the turn you did above and being your nonsensical rant about how all police agencies are corrupt, all judges are corrupt, and how you were unfairly and illegally arrested and ‘forced’ to take a record for something THAT YOU DID DO! Marijuana is not legal in the State of Maryland. You got caught. Get over it. Write a book. Become a millionaire…do something other that spread your diseased drivel all over this publication.

      As to what I believe it…let’s discuss! I believe that I protect America from all enemies – foreign and domestic. You sir, at one point in your life, were the very domestic enemy we all speak of. Your illegal use of, and growth of, an illegal substance was just that – illegal. Get over yourself. In the months of seeing you spill your hate fueled reasoning on fellow contributors, I have yet to find one person who finds sympathy with your plight. Move on. Write a book. Become a millionaire, get the movie deal and move to Amsterdam or Colorado where you can toke up and be happy.

      My mindset is to attempt to correct you on a few things that you attempted to post as “fact”. I see by your childish response of “Period. End of discussion” that you fear someone being made a fool of by someone with a superior knowledge of the subject matter being discussed.

      Have it your way, your so called “argument” is over. I will allow you to sit in your soiled shorts, and stew at the thought that you were bested on an anonymous internet chat board.

      Seriously, dude…the rally. Hit it up, lots of like minded folks. Final chapter in your book, bro.

        7 paragraphs of rant doesn’t make you right. The truth is the government is on a mission to destroy the rights of the American people, bit by bit, until the people no longer believe they have the rights enumerated in the constitution. The government has used law enforcement, intelligence agencies, the legal system, the legislature, regulatory agencies, the presidency, private citizens, corporations and now a supposed former veteran to aid them in this quest. You did not win an argument and I am not the enemy of the country I love. If you think a person who grew his own pot in the spare bedroom of a condo is a domestic enemy of the American people then I guess you believe that the wrestling video you posted is real and not a scripted means of sports entertainment. Just like that video, you are fake and your words will not change the fact that the government has become an organized crime syndicate and a terrorist organization……

          1. I posted no video, take your blame on that humorous artifact elsewhere.

          2. I am no more fake than the knowledge you spew on this site, article after article, pretending to stump us with your profound legal knowledge.

          3. No ranting there. However, calling people “terrorists” or the like is a mere rant, and a tool used by those who have nothing left of value to offer in the discussion.

          4. You love the country, cool – we share something in common at least.

          5. I most certainly think that anyone committing a crime willfully is an enemy of the American people.

            If you commit no crime against another, how is that being an enemy to anyone, yet alone the American people? When the State and its agents violate the rights of one of us, they have violated the rights of all of us. I guess that means that the State of Maryland is an enemy of the American people, but we already knew that didn’t we? Governing by intimidation is terrorism and those that help the State do such are terrorists and should be called terrorists accordingly. That is the value of using the term and I think it is of great importance that the citizens of Maryland know it as well. Now, I don’t think you love this country. I think you love the government of this country. I can not share that love of the government that you have….

            I don’t think there is one reader of the Dagger that doesn’t believe that the SoulCrusher feels he was done wrong by the criminal justice system. I guess that is his right. Whatever. What he has never been able to explain in any of his countless rants is why he feels that he can pick and chose which laws he feels apply to him. He knew the laws regarding the possession, and manufacturing (growing) of marijuana but still chose to violate them. Why? I hope he doesn’t ever feel that other laws such as child pornography, etc. don’t apply to him. That would be very, very, scary.

            Wow, three days later and you came back to this. You do have privacy on the internet. Federal Agencies are using the Patriot Act to violate the supreme law of the land regarding the 4th Amendment and our effects. The Patriot Act is an unconstitutional law, that was meant to combat terrorism, yet has been used to create a state of domestic terrorism in the USA against the American citizens. https://internetlaw.uslegal.com/privacy/

            To “Please explain” – I used marijuana and grew it in the privacy of my own home. The State violated that privacy in their investigation. They entered a constitutionally protected area appurtenant to my home to use a “device” that violated the privacy of what was in my home. The conviction is illegal and unconstitutional. The conviction was gained by acts of racketeering, domestic terrorism, extortion and perjury. The conviction should be vacated. Since it has not, I believe that the State of Maryland is illegitimate as a government. I believe the State is an organized crime syndicate and a terrorist organization and will not change my mind until the State vacates the illegal actions it has committed against me. As far as me having an interest in child pornography, well that’s just not my thing. However, I understand that the relatives of the Cassilly’s have a great interest in such things. Can you say “Bo Peep” Joe?

            Oh, you mean the investigation that was supposedly impartial. You see, that investigation was tainted. When Baltimore County took it over because of the conflict of interest, no one seemed to realize or care that Baltimore County and Harford County are of the same Judicial District for circuit courts. It was a cover up of a good ole boy network, where you scratch our back and we’ll scratch yours. Now, the real reason I was persecuted had nothing to do with pot. It was because I am the only person who can testify that James Spriggs was being paid by a company I used to work for and would probably nullify the convictions of well over 20,000 felony cases because of due process violations. My former attorney, Edward Thomas Maxwell Jr., knowingly and willingly negotiated a settlement between Paul Cox, James Spriggs, Randy Wiegman and the plaintiff Shirl Hirschauer, by using falsified and tampered evidence during that civil proceeding. I know this for a fact because I was ordered by Mr. Cox to create such evidence and since I am not a litigant, I am not required to follow the rules regarding the gag order that sealed that case. I also am not criminally liable because none of the evidence created was submitted to the court on my behalf as I was not part of the case. Your county’s SA office knows all about it and declined to do anything with that information. Your county also let a child molester go, redeemed the conviction of a cocaine dealer and allowed a co-defendant off the hook because it was that important to have me convicted. Jeffery Clayton Lawrence, Michelle Gonzalez and Ralph Edward McMahan all benefitted from my conviction and that forever taints my conviction as well. Keep typing, I’ll be happy to unload whoppers on the Dagger because I just don’t care anymore….. nor, do I use marijuana anymore. So I guess you are the smearer as calling me a pothead implies that I still use it, liar…..

            Dude, if you have all of that information, and can prove it via recognized “facts”…go back to one of my original statements and write a book. Sell the movie rights, make millions. Retire to Colorado where you can toke up and never be in fear of a “terroristic, corrupt government” hell bent on making everyday your worst day.

            By the way, only 2 Provisions in the Patriot Act were ruled unconstitutional. However, in this case, it does not appear that the Patriot Act was used to catch the degenerate.

            We will all sit back and wait for your “whoppers” on the Dagger. However, if they are such “whoppers”, then why not take it to a more reputable news source that won’t delete posts? Yes, I have seen the “proof in the pudding” you have posted previously where moderators deleted them (which I am against, by the way).
