Man Filmed Boys, Men All Over Boston

Boston Man Arrested for Child Exploitation, Filming Young Boys in Bathroom

A man was arrested for filming high school boys in a Boston Latin School bathroom and charged with several counts of child exploitation Monday.

Eric Tran Thai, 36, allegedly filmed boys using urinals and bathroom stalls between February and December 2017 at a BLS restroom, a U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts statement said Monday.

Officials allegedly discovered nearly 45 secretly recorded videos of boys at the BLS bathroom after locating several folders with school names during an analysis of recovered items from searching Thai’s home in March 2018.  Law officials seized several computer hard drives, cameras, thumb drives, digital storage cards and other computer devices during the search.  One of the folders said “Boston Latin High School.”

We definitely feel that we’ve been compromised,” BLS senior Josh Caban said, according to CBS Boston.

BLS found the allegations “seriously disturbing” and will host a meeting with parents to discuss the incident Tuesday, CBS reported.  Thai was a former BLS student.

Police began investigating Thai, 36, after two Boston College students reported being filmed in restrooms on separate occasions without their knowledge or consent on Feb. 6 and Feb. 27, 2018.  Thai allegedly admitted to police to not only “taking some pictures” of a man in the neighboring stall but also said he was involved with such activity for nearly a year.  He was arrested on state charges following the Feb. 27, 2018 report, according to the District of Massachusetts statement.

Each charge for sexual exploitation of children can be a mandatory minimum of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison.  Each charge can also provide a minimum of five years and up to a lifetime of supervised release and up to $250,000 in fines, the District of Massachusetts statement said.

BLS serves students in grades 7-12, making it both a middle and high school, according to the school’s website.

BLS did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

The case is brought as part of Project Safe Childhood.  In 2006, the Department of Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit projectsafechildhood.gov/

  1. The depths of human depravity are astounding….even though I should know not to be surprised, I always am. 🙁

    1. Oh yeah, no doubt, but you might should put on your seatbelt for this one….
      OK all you people, i wish I didn’t have to do this to all of you, but you are NOT up to the speed of Parent that you will all need to be….
      Now I have not had one person say what I did, so just follow me, now I am talking just about the 7th grade to 12th grade Latin school.
      This 35 year old X-student must have been in the restroom for longer than 5 minutes at a time, and from what I’ve read and that includes EVERYTHING, but this guy had to have went to the restroom maybe once per class.
      NOW does anyone see what I am getting at???? I have seen nothing that says he is/was employed, so how did he do this from… what was it , like February 2017 thru the year, but never even raised suspicion.
      This grown man was spending a lot of time in the boys restroom, and the DOJ speculates that he did it 10 times thru the year in 2017.
      So in all this time, not one teacher, coach, counselor, or someone from the office never checked on this grown man????

      1. How are we going to do that? I’m not stopping. These people have already tried to kill me seven times and missed. As long as I am alive I will scream louder. You have to understand that I know personally fifteen women that have been raped and pillaged by the Luciferian System and I seem to be the strength for them. I have tried to make them all understand that God is our Strength. They Pray with me but I’m not sure that they really understand the Presence of God yet. God is Bigger than the Corruption that tries to destroy us. I know that and eventually my friends will understand that as well

      2. Yes Saundra, and I don’t believe that it is too far down the road that we will hear that trumpet sound, and the shout of The ArchAngel….
