Update: DA examines forensic evidence. Read latest story here.

(Update 3:30 p.m.)SF Weekly has obtained the search warrant, which details the items police seized from Brinkin and his husband's home. Those items include computers, videos, VHS tapes, and a floppy disc. Read details of the search warrant after the jump

Original story: Police say they arrested 66-year-old Larry Brinkin, the high-profile gay activist, on possession of child pornography on Friday night.

Brinkin, a community icon who led the fight for the city to recognize same-sex partnerships, was arrested and booked into San Francisco County Jail, police said.

He posted bail and was released Saturday, according to a jail spokesman.

Police Spokesman Officer Albie Esparza would only say that the case was still under investigation, and would give no more details at this time.

Brinkin retired from the Human Rights Commission in 2010, and has been a beloved member of the gay community, with the Board of Supervisors even declaring the first week of February as "Larry Brinkin Week." At the time of his retirement, he earned more than $135,000 yearly.

We put in a call to Theresa Sparks, executive director of the Human Rights Commission, told us this allegation is "beyond hard to believe."

"It's almost incredulous, there's no way I could believe such a thing," Sparks told us. "He's always been one of my heroes, and he's the epitome of human rights activist -- this is man who coined phrases we use in our daily language. I support Larry 100 percent, hopefully it will all come out in the investigation."

(Update 3:30 p.m.)
: According to the search warrant, SFPD acted after receiving a tip from the Los Angeles Police Department, which obtained from AOL an e-mail exchange between a Los Angeles user and zack3737@aol.com. Police say they linked the AOL address to Brinkin's IP address; he is owner of the account and paid for AOL service with his credit card.

The warrant claims these e-mails contained images of children as young as perhaps a year old being sodomized by and performing oral sex on adult men. Zack3737@aol.com -- whom the police allege is Brinkin -- provided graphic commentary on the photos of interracial adult-child sex. Comments included "I loved especially the nigger 2 year old getting nailed. Hope you'll continue so I can see what the little blond bitch is going to get. White Power! White Supremacy! White Dick Rules!"

The AOL e-mail account was also linked to Yahoo! Groups centering around discussions of child porn, according to the search warrant. Investigators say they additionally found e-mails sent from Brinkin's now-defunct city e-mail account to zack3737@aol.com.

Once again, gays are perverts, but the media will do anything to protect them.

No one seems to be mentioning the racist language he used in his emails.  No matter what you feelings are on his sexuality , his language is racist and deserves his condemnation.

Homosexuals and pedophilia go together.

The agenda of homosexuals, whether they realize it or not, is to allow pedophilia and other perverted sexual acts to become accepted.


If you don't believe me, wait about 10 years and read this comment again.

There is a media blackout on this case! Does Brinkin still have his kid? Did he make the nazi posts? Can anyone connect the dots? Maybe all the reporters are too busy eating chicken sandwiches?

Call the DA's office and demand justice.

Where are the formal charges? More than a month? Where is his adopted 13 year-old son? Where's the courage to report this story? Outrageous.

 I have been using the internet since nearly the beginning and I have never accidentaly stumbled upon child porn; I even seek out pornography on a regular basis and it always appears to be consenting adults. It seems really strange that once a year you run across child porn. I am glad that this has not been my experience, as I would be really disturbed to constantly have to deal with that.

I think you're right; these sorts of crimes should be used for petty political whining and in no way should we consider the children involved. Really pedophilia is only a problem when the other team does it.

 Yeah, the Church was so supportive of the Enlightenment. Whenever I think of the Church, I think of all the cool ways they have supported scientific thinking and in no way brutally oppressed all forms of free inquiry. It was really kind of them to hook Galielo up with that sweet fellowship-in-residence for his entire lifetime for correctly describing the sky. By the way, there were no dark ages. That knowledge wasn't lost. It was well taken care of for centuries by Islamic scholars who remained diligent

perfect, why? why has someone who shot someone else risen to the level of a moral hero? he could be not guilty of murder but he still killed a young man with a gun. i know moral bankruptcy is popular among right-wing idols, but can't you do better? what is so attractive about the zimmerman case? do you really think there's a witch hunt against him?

your biblical history sucks dick, which can be a form of sodomy even if a woman does it.

God is either omnipotent, or God is as lame as you describe. The God you describe is moody and weak. The word perfection ceases to have meaning if it as redefined as the potential to be awesome with a high chance of someone coming along and screwing things up. In that case, the truism's wrong, and everyone's perfect.

God made the world perfect, then Adam and Eve decided they wanted to have power and they sinned, making the world a fallen, sinful place. God gave them a choice to live in paradise and they chose to go against God.. In heaven things will be restored. God loves us and it hurts him to see his creation turn away from him to evil ways. But even though it saddens him and angers him, he still gives us a chance to be with him in heaven.

Bad news folks.  Back when Obama had both houses of Congress under his control, they passed the Matthew Sheppard Hate Crimes Prevention Act, as a rider to a must-pass military appropriations bill, and over the objections of thousands, perhaps millions, who wrote in against it. What the Berkeleyite, Leftist Congress did was to take every single, stinkin Paraphilia pp that is, every sexual deviancy the APA has listed, like people who get off on wallowing in poop or pee, or bunning little kids, and covering them with special federal civil rights protection. Yet another bit of damage that must be undone in the coming years. SEE World Net Daily S.909 Pedophile Protection Act

No. It's just that after awhile doing the foul stuff that he did, the odds were that he eventually would get caught. It's happened to the Boy Scouts, to the Catholic Church and everywhere else homosexuals prowl for little boys. It's no surprise.

Interesting you should call Normal folks 'zealots.' The Zealots were Jewish, cross dressing thugs, rapists and assassins: "Their passion for looting was insatiable: they ransacked rich men’s houses, murdered men and violated women for sport, and drank their spoils washed down with blood: through sheer boredom they shamelessly gave themselves up to effeminate practices, adorning their hair and putting on women’s clothes, steeping themselves in scent and painting under their eyes to make themselves attractive. "They copied not merely the dress but also the passions of women, and in their utter filthiness invented unlawful pleasures; they wallowed in slime, turning the whole city into a brothel and polluting it with the foulest practices. "Yet though they had the faces of women they had the hands of murderers; they approached with mincing steps, then in a flash became fighting-men, and drawing their swords from under their dyed cloaks ran every passer-by through."       Josephus, The Jewish Wars, p. 255 c.75

Citation please.  That's a handy bit of information to use when homosexuals deny any affiliation with pedophiles. Of course, one need only look at a an Elton John concert to see where homosexuals are really coming from. SEE: Gay group apologises for Sir Elton's camp act with `cub scout' strippers (December 1999) "THE GAY rights group Stonewall has apologised after Sir Elton John caused outrage by performing a dance act with male teenage strippers dressed as boy scouts at a benefit concert. "The Scout Association described the show as "deplorable and in bad taste" and is asking Sir Elton for a formal apology and a charitable donation by way of redress. "Sir Elton, 52, introduced the dancers, who peeled off their uniforms and caps to the tune of "It's A Sin" by the Pet Shop Boys. The 18- and 19-year-old dancers knelt on the floor, grabbed their groins, and stripped down to skimpy shorts." Too much, too soon for them, apparently.  Too much of the truth before Normals would endanger their incremental, stealth agenda. They want the kids.

Actually, they've been at this for some time. The plan is to frame it as 'child liberation' and children's sexual rights. The cleaned-up, modernized version of NAMBLA (the North American Man-Boy Love Association) is now called B4U-ACT.   Look it up on the Net. Their platform is to de-criminalize pederasty.  Indeed, they want man-boy love to be 'de-stigmatized.'   So, they just don't want the State's permission, they are demanding your approval.  This is merely a continuation of the homosexual activists trajectory.  They did the same exact thing in 1973 in getting homosexuality removed as a mental condition and sexual deviancy from the APA's DSM-II in 1973. They want to do the same thing to the upcoming revision (DSM-5)  for 'minor-attracted persons.' See, they are well-practiced at putting lipstick on pigs.  But at the same time, calling TRUTH 'hatred' and MORALITY, 'bigotry.' "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" -- Isaiah 5:20

Actually, no. A male sexually assaulting another male is homosexual. But, it's not a fluke, nor is it an accident. From the Gay Platform of 1972 right through to the present version of NAMBLA (the North American Man-Boy Love Association) -- B4U-ACT, pederasty has been part and parcel of homosexuality. When mainstream (if it can be called that) homosexual travel guides compare over 100 countries for the availability of underage boys for sodomy, it is part of mainstream homosexuality. When studies have revealed that incredibly high numbers of homosexuals have engaged in sodomy with underage males, and when yet further studies reveal that homosexuals are responsible for between 25 to 40 percent of all child sexual assault, even though they comprise maybe 2 percent of the population, all tends to show that homosexuality is closely associated with pederasty. Of course, homosexual activists want to create some sort of distance between homosexuality and pederasty, but that's just political expediency.  'Gay Rights' are just a canard, a cover for somehow proposing you can pick up poop by the clean end.

"Or if he even really exists"? You're questioning the existence of Brinkin now? I thought of a dozen snarky responses to your ridiculous parenthetical phrase, but none are needed to highlight how shallow your thinking is. Also, to answer your irrelevant question, no, I followed the Breitbart.com link, not one from Free Republic. I don't know why you're obsessed with that detail as if confirmation that if I found this through Free Republic would somehow fix the mangled logic in your profane rantings.

@xhawk2 LOL. And what about the millions of straight men who screw little girls every year across the globe?  That's not perverted to you?  That says quite a lot.

@brianjlg You seem to be the one in denial.  Don't you watch the parade every year where the peodophiles participate?  Straight people don't let those who openly support child rape participate in our public events.
