Gunn also was accused of working another scam in which he posed as the new kid in town on social media sites such as Facebook, and once he gained the girls trust he would solicit embarrassing information about them, according to Becks statement. Gunn would ask for explicit photographs and threaten to make available the embarrassing information if the girls refused, it said. Authorities allege that Gunns actions took place from 2009 until 2012. On March 20, 2012, FBI agents executed a federal search warrant on Gunns house. They said they seized a cellphone and a laptop computer containing images and videos of child pornography. Becks statement said Gunn had obtained explicit photos of young girls in numerous states, including Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana. The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it is continuing to work to identify any additional victims in other states including Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and California. Based on his guilty plea, Gunn faces no less than 25 years and as much as 35 years in federal prison, Becks statement said. It added that he could be ordered to spend the rest of his life on supervised release. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Happening in the subject line to skinonen@alligator. org.

An Alabama man who was accused of posing online as pop star Justin Bieber while urging young girls to send him explicit photos of themselves pleaded guilty Thursday to producing child pornography, authorities announced. Christopher Patrick Gunn, 31, of Montgomery, promised young girls free tickets and backstage passes to a Bieber concert if they would agree to send him inappropriate photos or webcam transmission of themselves, authorities said. A statement released Thursday by U.S. Attorney George L. Beck in Montgomery said Gunn used chat rooms and other social media outlets to threaten hundreds of girls ages 9 to 16 throughout the United States and abroad over a period of more than two years as part of a far-ranging online sextortion scheme that included posing as Bieber and other ruses. These child predators irreparably damage the children they victimize, Beck said in the news release. The scope of this defendants exploitation of children is staggering; he not only preyed upon children in our community, but in communities across the United States.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 5 CAMPUS KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterWhether its by attending election awareness campaigns or by registering to vote, UF students can become engaged in the upcoming presidential election. The Politic365 College Convention Bus Tour, an 11-college and university tour in conjunction with the Republican and Democratic national conventions, will hold a rally from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday in the Reitz Union Rion Ballroom. Students will voice their opinions on topics such as jobs, health care and immigration, according to a UF news release. Students will also have access to a Politic365 speaker panel and representatives from politically engaged organizations like the College Republicans and College Democrats. On Aug. 31, Bring it to the Table, a community engagement campaign, will be on Turlington Plaza from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The program, sponsored by the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, will allow students to share their political beliefs in an effort to encourage tolerance and discussion, according to a UF news release. The tour is attending the Republican National Convention and will stop in Gainesville on its way to the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina, said Shelby Taylor, digital and communications director at the Graham Center. If students have not yet registered to vote, they can do so through TurboVote, Taylor said. Students can also change their registration county to Alachua County or request an absentee ballot from their county of permanent residence. Andrew Arons, a 19-year-old telecommunication sophomore, requested an absentee ballot from his hometown of Boca Raton using the TurboVote link on the Integrated Student Infor mation System. About 1,500 students have either completed an absentee ballot request or registered since the program launched this summer, Taylor said.

Thursdays question: Do you have all of your textbooks yet? 67% YES 33% NO30 TOTAL VOTESWhile on break, students tend to block out the world in favor of more malaise and relaxing realities. Fortunately for nearly all Americans, the fear of an artillery strike on a hospital, mechanized assaults on suburban neighborhoods and the loss of an entire generation in a family is a distant and abstract notion. However, this does not and should not abdicate the American publics conscience from the atrocities taking place in Syria. The millennial generation those who range in age from 16 to 25 is by far the most electronically connected in terms of global communication. Now is the time for us to put this vehicle into action. Last semester, I wrote a column imploring students to take action so we can keep Syria off of a macabre list that includes the likes of Rwanda, Sarajevo, Srebrenica and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. With a death toll in excess of 20,000 and evidence suggesting the brutal regime of Bashar al-Assad has committed atrocities amounting to war crimes, the window for the possibility of avoiding mass atrocity crimes has now passed. What remains is the opportunity for swift cessation and resolution. But the current geopolitical climate would suggest that this secondary follow-up objective may fall out of reach as well. Here is where we must take a stand. foremost humanitarian. In contrast with how the U.S. cation for an intervention could be mounted solely on humanitarian grounds, without needing a weapons-ofmass-destruction goose chase. Thanks to the proliferation of online tools such as lence and depravity in Syria are easily accessible. Those who claim a non-interventionist policy can no longer stand by the sidelines. The U.S. and other allies have already intervened. Now there is only a question of to what extent we will continue to intervene. Non-lethal aid, medical supplies and diplomatic measures are all forms of external intervention into the Syrian crisis. seems to you to be a radical socialist, and no matter face anything like indiscriminate air strikes on civilian targets. To those who say the risk of your grandchild having to pay an extra 5 percent in taxes in 50 years to pay off a national debt means we must not help people half a world away who are truly suffering, remember this: At the very least you can still talk that way about your progenies future. Hundreds of families in Syria do not have that ability because of the loss of an entire generation. Ive said it before: If we remain comatose and act complacent, we will become morally culpable. We still have time to right the course of history. This reinvigorated call for action is not a call for war or invasion, but rather to help the Syrians suffering at the hands of their own brutal government. You should be outraged and angry at such senseless slaughter and the subsequent lack of committed action. By understanding the daily hell Syrian children are exfor continued intervention. Your calls should become stronger and more passionate the more you learn of their suffering. And if our peaceful intervention tactics fail, and the need for direct military intervention becomes a potential reality, the mere fact that steps were taken to under stand the issue before the onset of war will make for a more honest and intelligent discussion.

MEREDITH RUTLANDAlligator Staff WriterA few days before the biggest UF medical school test of the year, Ray Brown sped 550 miles to Tennessee to clear his mind. That was typical Ray, his 32year-old brother Tom Brown said. He was never quite sure where Ray would go next Haiti to look after people, Iraq to tend to Army vehicles, UF to train to be a doctor but Tom always knew Ray would come home again safely. Ray, 31, was headed back to Florida on June 21, but something went wrong. His car crashed, the metal twisting, the glass breaking. He was rushed by helicopter to a hospital in Chattanooga, Tenn. There, family watched him open his eyes. They saw the blank stare the expression of the brain-damaged. There was a far-off look in his eyes, like he was trying to wake up from a dream. covers, his family is facing its own nightmares: dwindling savings, insurance. But theyre far from giving up. Wednesday. He stood up for the cident. He can squeeze a ball and hold his mothers hand. His once Superman-like muscles have atrophied, making him look like a mortal again. His curly brown hair and beard are growing in, his facial hair trimmed as othHes getting better, but the progress is slow going. After being released from Er langer Medical Center Monday, Ray was taken to St. Augustine to stay with his mom. She always had a little room set up for Ray, just in case he decided to visit. But this time, instead of watching her boys wrestle in the kitchen, shes watching as various ther apists help her youngest boy take baby step after baby step toward recovery. As Rays silver car cruised down a Tennessee highway, glinting in the late afternoon sun, the Brown familys nightmare began. He was driving back from Nashville, Tenn., on Interstate 24. It was about 4 p.m., and he wasnt far into his trek. His car drifted out of his lane, He overcorrected, slamming the right side of the car into a passing semi truck. Nearby witnesses one who ran to help him. While the man tended to Ray, a woman found his phone and called Tom and his mother. All we knew was he was beTom said. You can only imagine the scenarios you run through in your head when you have a loved They drove all day and through the night to be by his side. Until this week, Rays family didnt know if theyd be able to get him into a rehabilitation program. He couldnt stay in the hospital, because he was well enough to be discharged, but his family said he needs intense therapy, both mentally and physically, if hes going to improve. Hell get medical care provided by Veterans Affairs at his moms house until a rehab program agrees to take him. For a while, programs wouldnt take him, because he couldnt respond to commands. With his recent progress of talking sporadically, his family is looking into getting him into Tampas James A. Haley Veter ans Hospital. If everything goes as planned, Ray could be set to go to the VA in two weeks. A big hurdle is the money. Ray doesnt have insurance, and hes all but drained his Medicaid. At home, little things like Rays Ensure shakes add up at about $2 a pop. But long-term care is a whole other matter. For now, VA-contracted therapists visit Ray regularly, but his family isnt sure how long they can expect that to last. Were still in the dark in terms of what hell need and what hell Before his accident, Ray was on his way to UF to take Step 1, a comprehensive science skills test. It is universally known within the UF medical school as the most important and stressful exam to happen all year, said UF medical student Amy Driebe, 24. If you dont pass, you dont advance to the third year of medical school. And how well you do can specialize in. But friends say Ray wasnt stressing about the exam. The last time 26-year-old UF medical student Benjamin Srivastava saw Ray, he was in Library West, calm amid the chaos of cramming students. I feel now, studying for this test, Im reaching my maximum Driebe said she ran into Ray earlier in the year at Target. While she and most of her medical school friends were bundles of stress, Ray looked relaxed and collected. He was just so calm, and like, For those who knew Rays penchant for meditation and calm manner, his answer came as no surprise. Nothing could faze Ray. She said many of her classmates are in shock after learning about his accident and brain damage. Ray was one of the best peoing. He just had so much in his life. He was just going in such an amazing direction. It just couldnt have happened to a nicer per Rays demeanor wasnt given to him. It was earned. After high school, he realized he needed to make a change in his life, so he followed in his brothers footsteps and joined the Army, becoming a diesel mechanic and serving in Iraq, his brother said. Ray kept the details to himself only mentioning fragments of stories of how the ground shook during mortar raids but somewhere in the smoke and sand, he had his awakening. Tom said Ray came home mature, focused and ready to plan for the future. He focused on his health by exercising more, meditating and keeping a close watch on what he ate, sometimes testing out peculiar diets. His friends would post new concoctions on his Facebook wall, like sugarless cakes. Soon, he graduated from the University of South Florida and was headed to UFs medical school with dreams of pursuing Doctors Without Borders. His friends said he was motivated, yet kept his sense of humor. He had an unparalleled ability to dedicate himself to his work while keeping a calm presence. Since the accident, Rays class has banded together to get the word out about Rays condition to see if theres anything that can be done to get him medical help or donations. Srivastava said. They thought hed be a great doctor one day. When medical students start their studies, they expect to be healing strangers. They dont expect for one of their own to show up in their emergency room or to be on their charts. They belong in lab coats, not paper gowns. I think theres this idea that when you go into medical school Driebe said. We have a hard time Contact Meredith Rutland at mrutland@alligator.org.

10, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 2012 THE ASSOCIATED PRESSHOBBS, N.M. Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney promised on Thursday to aggressively expand off-shore oil drilling along Vir ginia, North Carolina and the Gulf of Mexico, changing the subject from social issues like abortion and Medicare that have dominated the debate in the days before the critical Republican National Convention. Speaking to voters in the heart of New Mexicos oil and gas industry, Romney declared that his energy plans which include drilling for oil in a federal Alaskan wildlife reserve would create 3 million jobs and more than $1 trillion in new revenue. And he predicted complete North American energy independence by 2020, a neverrealized goal claimed by presidential candidates for decades. That means we produce all the energy we use in North America, Romney said, emphasizing an expansion of oil and gas over wind and solar production. This is not some pie-in-thesky kind of thing. This is a real achievable objective. President Barack Obama did not face voters on Thursday. Instead, he deployed a popular former president, Bill Clinton, to help convince a divided electorate that he simply needs economy. Clinton is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention next month and play a prominent Day. The cornerstone of Romneys plan is opening up more areas for offshore oil drilling, including mid-Atlantic swing states like North Carolina and Virginia, where it is currently banned. He also wants to give states the power to establish all forms of energy producin current policy that could face strong opposition in Congress. in Alaskas Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as part of a broad plan to gener ate millions of additional barrels of oil each day. A Romney camdownplayed the comment. The plan would revive a longtime Republican goal to allow drilling for oil in the wildlife refuge. Congress has blocked drilling there for more than a quartercentury. Romney also plans to approve the Keystone XL pipeline that has worried environmentalists and would run from he is calling for the end of a production tax credit for wind power that is set to expire at the end of the year.Romney promises energy independence by 2020Rachel Crosby / AlligatorI Want to Ride My BicycleMarea Frazel, an 18-year-old mechanical aerospace engineering sophomore, cleans and rebuilds the bottom bracket of her bicycle Thursday at UFs Free Bike Repair shop.

KATIE AGOSTIN Alligator Staff Writer When the Gators open their season against Florida International tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the OConnell Center, theyll have the opportunity to do something they havent done since 2007 run a 5-1 offense. Its something the fans will be excited about because its something we havent run here at Florida in a long time, junior Chloe Mann said. Theyll get to see the setter be really offensive, which I know is really exciting. Florida has had much success with its new offense in the past. Last time it ran a 5-1 was with threetime All-American Angie McGinnis, who led the team to a 29-3 record and a Southeastern Conference title with 1,485 assists in 2007. However, after running a 6-2 offense for the last four years, there is going to be a lot of change for the outside hitters and the libero, according to senior Tangerine Wiggs. Taylor (Unroe), or whoever plays libero, has to work on defending a 5-1 behind the setter, Wiggs said. Its a little different than defending behind a right side in the middle because we run a different defense behind a setter in the middle. Its going to be harder for Taylor, but shes a great passer, and I have no doubt that shell do just Although Wiggs said they havent run a 6-2 at practice yet, she said there is a possibility the Gators will use that style of offense. Expect anything from us, Wiggs said. During preseason, I have no doubt that the coaches will try different lineups to make sure everyone gets playing time. Anythings possible at this point, but we have been practicing a 5-1. Given the changes the Gators face, their main concern for this weekends Campus USA Credit Union Invite isnt the competition, but working on their own problems. Were a lot more focused on ourselves and making sure were doing all the things on our side of the net to execute and score points, Wiggs said. Were less concerned about opponents. Its more when we get into the SEC that we get really concerned about our opponents. Another change for the Gators will be the absence of sophomore Noami Santos-Lamb. The outside hitter, who was responsible for 14.5 points in 20 sets last year, tore her ACL during the Fan Day scrimmage on Saturday. I felt that we really lost a week and a half because we had to start over (from) square one when Noami got injured, coach Mary Wise said. Right now were just trying Even though the Gators have from, all of them are freshmen, and Wise only had six days to make a decision. When the lights come on and compete, Wise said. Will we be as organized and seamless as I would have liked us to have been? No, but everything changed on Saturday.
