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.
Anthony Josef Norris, founder and director of Kid Serve Youth Murals, designed and worked on all the projects. The San Francisco man surrendered June 2 to the FBI after agents investigating a website known for child pornography traced the log-on name of "Spanky" to his home computer and discovered 600 pornographic images of children, according to an arrest warrant affidavit filed in federal court in San Francisco

A recurring question among San Francisco officials is: "what can we do to get middle class people to send their kids to the City's schools?" My suggestion: stop doing things like hiring guys with child pornography on their computers to teach art. And if you insist on hiring such people, try to at least keep them from inserting sexual imagery into the art they work on with the kids. SF Unified School District failed on both of these counts:
Sheesh! The problem with SF schools is the lack of adult supervision, even among the adults.
