Department of Homeland Security Arrested!

These people are suppose to be…protecting us…

MIAMI - The deputy press secretary for the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security was arrested Tuesday for using the Internet to seduce what he thought was a teenage girl, authorities said.

Brian J. Doyle, 55, was arrested at his residence in Maryland on charges of use of a computer to seduce a child and transmission of harmful material to a minor. The charges were issued out of Polk County, Fla.

Doyle, of Silver Spring, Md., had a sexually explicit conversation with what he believed was a 14-year-old girl whose profile he saw on the Internet on March 14, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The girl was really an undercover Polk County Sheriff’s Computer Crimes detective, the sheriff’s office said.

Doyle sent pornographic movie clips and had sexually explicit conversations via the Internet, the statement said.

During other online conversations, Doyle revealed his name, that he worked for the Homeland Security Department, and offered his office and government issued cell phone numbers, the sheriff’s office said.

Doyle also sent photos of himself that were not sexually explicit, authorities said. One photo, which authorities released to the news media, shows Doyle in what appears to be homeland security headquarters. He is wearing a homeland security pin on his lapel and a lanyard that says "

The Transportation Security Administration is part of the Homeland Security Department.

On several occasions, Doyle instructed the girl to perform a sexual act while thinking of him and described explicit activities he wanted to have with her, investigators said.

Doyle later had a telephone conversation with an undercover deputy posing as the teenager and encouraged her to purchase a Web camera to send graphic images of herself to him, the sheriff’s office said.

He was booked into Maryland’s Montgomery County jail where he was waiting to be extradited to Florida, the sheriff’s office said.

There was no immediate response to messages left on Doyle’s government-issued cell phone and his e-mail, and he could not be reached by phone at the jail for comment.

Homeland Security press secretary Russ Knocke in Washington said he could not comment on the details of the investigation. “We take these allegations very seriously, and we will cooperate fully with the ongoing investigation,” Knocke said.

Washington television stations showed footage of police escorting Doyle from his home in handcuffs. One arresting officer carried a large box. Doyle was bent over in the front seat of the police vehicle in an apparent attempt to hide his face.

Doyle, who is the fourth-ranking official in the department’s public affairs office, was expected to be placed on administrative leave Wednesday morning.


“These people” weren’t arrested, one man was. Your thread title implies the entire Department of Homeland Security was arrested, obviously not correct. While not a fan of the DHS, it is patently wrong to lump them all in one basket. Sounds like something the muckraking press would put forward as accurate reporting. Some credit should be given to those who uncovered and made public this travesty.

Make me doubt one fact, and I’ll start doubting all facts… /.

Behind every 14yr old girl online profile … is an FBI agent waiting to throw your arse in jail :stuck_out_tongue:

And good riddance. Teenage girls already have enough issues without throwing dirty old men into the mix :stuck_out_tongue:

Please do NOT take this personal!

Given the trustworthiness of the DHS it’s pretty safe to put them all in one basket.

Sounds like something the muckraking press would put forward as accurate reporting.
Same as Fox, ABC, NBC and CNN would do.

Some credit should be given to those who uncovered and made public this travesty.
That’d be pretty scary, because all journalists would then be very afraid to even form a slight remote opinion. The DHS could get rid of them fairly easy.

Unless one has witnessed it with your own very eyes, a drug-free brain and physical evidences which haven’t been tampered with one cannot be sure of anything.

Being the sensitive new age guy I am, it’s difficult not to take everything personally.

I think the people above me are having sex - or they’re sleeping restlessly and agreeing with each other a lot. /.

Okay then, be angry, be mad. Kill me.

I think the people above me are having sex

Me, Debro and Sexy Southerner? With each other? That’d be quite a technology since i am in Europe, Debro in Australia and Sexy Southerner in The States.


The original point and click interface was a Smith and Wesson. /.

Try not to take everything literally.

Any technology distinguishable from magic, is insufficiently advanced. /.

I’m beginning to think you’re less of a sensitive new age guy, and more of a caring understanding nineties type.

You really need to take heed of my previous suggestion for a stress ball.

I’m so happy right now, it seems the good twin is finally turning EVIL

Let me guess, minor in Psychology?

You’re just jealous because the voices only talk to me /.

I hear the voices also:p. Actually I sat in on a Committee Hearing about child pr0n while in D.C. They mentioned this, but didn’t really say what they should do. Then they yelled at the guy that came in to talk about the problems of child Pr0n and said “we don’t want you, I’m gonna call my friend and get a real person in here to testify against this stuff:a” And then they called the next testifier up
