It's Always A Teacher, A Cop, or a Preacher

Kiddie porn stories--if they're to be genuinely good, see-them-on-the-evening-news caliber stories--will always have a teacher, a cop, or a preacher as one of the bad guys. It's like some unwritten rule or something. This story comes pretty close:
The head of a children's art organization, arrested three weeks ago on suspicion of possessing child pornography, placed "offensive" tiles in murals he created at four city schools, San Francisco police said Friday.

About 100 "inappropriate" tiles have been found in murals at Sunset Elementary School and three other unnamed schools in the city, Police Chief Greg Suhr said...

Also under investigation were murals Norris worked on at Old Mill Elementary School in Mill Valley, Global Family School in Oakland, and Bahia Vista Elementary School in San Rafael.
If you don't see it on the evening news, it's because he's not a full-on teacher, he just worked with kids.

The dramatic value of people who abuse the trust society places in them is greater then your average, walkin' around guy. No special expectations there and no special trust and authority.

But a cop, teacher or priest? A trust's been shattered when they abuse their power. Powerful stuff by definition.
