Feds Raid Home of Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle

Happened this morning:

Linky: http://www.wthr.com/story/29489819/f...on-jared-fogle

Federal, state agents raid home of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle

INDIANAPOLIS -
Federal and state agents raided the Zionsville home of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday as part of a child porn investigation.

This follows the April arrest of Russell Taylor, the former executive director of the Jared Foundation, for child pornography.

The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children task force is the lead agency on the investigation.

They are removing electronics from the home and they are being analyzed inside a mobile forensics van in the home's driveway.

Fogle has been detained outside his home, although he is not under arrest.

Fogle's wife and children left the home shortly after the raid began.
You know, I'm torn by this. On one hand, the feds/cops absolutely need to investigate wither Fogle was also involved in what Taylor was arrested for. But does the public have a "right to know" about this before law enforcement and the legal system have determined if there's even a possibility of guilt? If he's guilty, then throw the book at him.... but regardless of guilt the reporting of this incident has pretty much ruined him and his career.

The online article even goes so far as to publish the street and block where Fogle lives with his wife and children, and with on-the-scene photos of his house anyone with a computer can pull up Google Street View and get his physical address. So now he and his children are at risk of retaliation even if he did nothing wrong at all.

Where do we draw the line here? Is this "responsible" journalism?

Yeah he is done for. Just having his name in the same headline as child porn is enough for that. FB zombies are already saying they will never eat at subway again, etc etc.

Ah yes Facebook. Guilty until proven innocent, then likely still guilty in their eyes.

But yeah, his career (as a speaker and commercial guy) is fucked by association alone.

Wait, is he even under investigation, or is it just the former executive director?

The former executive director has been arrested. The feds/cops have raided Fogle's home, presumably, looking for evidence. Fogle is not under arrest.... it's just an investigation.

Re: Feds Raid Home of Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle

I note now that the original online article has been updated to add:

"Eyewitness News Crime Beat Reporter Steve Jefferson was the only reporter on the scene when the raid began Tuesday morning at the home, located in the XXXXX block of XXXXXXXXXXXX Drive."

So WTHR is primarily interested in ratings and patting themselves on the back for this.

How the hell did Steve Jefferson know about the raid beforehand?

Guess he's "moving on up" the journalism ranks.

I read the executive director tried to off himself in prison and is on life support.

This sure as hell wouldn't stop me from eating at Subway. Hopefully everyone who was involved in the actual child porn gets busted.

WTHR should be sued for this, and I hope the Fogle family is getting a lawyer today to file it. The only way to stop this shit is to put these companies out of business and strike fear into the other cowards that publish this information.

Sure, the argument may be this is public information, but when you combine public information with a potential criminal act that has yet to be determined, you create something that is not just innocently public, but now put others in the vicinity in danger.

Responsible journalism is long dead. This is par for the course.

I hate Subway. I never eat there. There are dozens of better options around me for my sandwich needs. Having said that, IF Jared is cleared of wrong doing and Subway stands by him, I'll buy a Subway sandwich out of respect of that decision.

But more than likely, his career is over, regardless of what comes of this.

Eat Fresh.
