Here's a perfect illustration of the old adage Honesty is the best policy:
A man applying to be a police officer in San Diego admitted on his application he liked child porn - and was arrested.
Cops raided Robert Williams' apartment and car, confiscating computer equipment after he admitted he'd had past sexual contact with a child and also wrote he had "viewed, purchased, sold or subscribed to child pornography", local TV reported.
