Fire Captain Tristen Cruz Charged With Child Exploitation


Arrest stemmed from federal investigation:

A firefighter from the state of Georgia has been arrested on charges that he possessed child pornography.

Police say 34-year-old Tristen Cruz, of Alpharetta, a fire captain employed by that city for over 7 years now, was charged Thursday with six counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

The arrest is said to have stemmed from a major federal investigation into child pornography.

Besides the above MySpace profile, Cruz also maintained another lengthy one here on a social networking website devoted to Firefighters, EMS and Rescue.

  1. Personally knowing this pompus fool, I hope that there is a vacancy in General Population when he is convicted. The mental harm he has done to his family and children can not be excused. His MySpace page says he cannot put up with ignorant people - how does he even look in the mirror??

  2. Personally knowing him for over 5 years, I belive there has got to be a mistake of some sort. He has been around me and my children, and I would trust him today. Don't convict someone before the courts do.

  3. You know, it is not unusual for the individual concerned to post comments about himself/herself under the "cover" of Anonymous. If you didn't notice, I stated "when he is convicted".

  4. He wouldn't waste his time on here, Bill. I don't care to have my name out there, but stand by my statements.

  5. "He wouldn't waste his time on here"

    ...Your right, he's better suited cruising kiddy porn sites instead of "wasting" his time here.

    Good call Anon!

  6. the computer was at his ex-wife's house and not in his possesion, so I'm not sure I would be ready to condemn anyone on those "facts".

    ReplyDelete
  7. That's not exactly true. Child porn images were also found on a computer seized from the Georgia Public Safety Training Center.

  8. Get a Life and Get Back to Work. You guys are always preaching camaraderie. Where is it now? You can't stand behind a fellow firefighter until there is an ACTUAL TRUTH to base an opinion on. Right now, all you have is speculation. Seriously, get back to work. You have lives and property to save.

  9. Tristen is a tool. If he's guilty, then he's a total piece of crap. His lifestyle has always been, shall we say, questionable? Just remember - he's a MEDIC first. Oh yeah he completed fire training and all - but he's a MEDIC through and through!!!!

  10. I too have known this ass for years...........he brags of his intellectual capability, but pusshed his family away so he could pursue his "private life" which we now know is Little Kiddie Porno..........

  11. It always amazes what the ignorant friends and relatives always have to say about these scumbag deviants. It goes something along the lines of "geez, I've know this man for years, I went to church with him, he watches my children; therefore theres no way he can be a pedophile." Get a clue you stupid people. Be thankful he didn't prey on your kids, which he probably would have in time. It's because of people like you that fall for bullshit pleasantries that these people can lurk in the shawdows. You fucking Idiots.

  12. It's really funny. You can't say he's guilty. I'm glad you have all declared yourself GOD in judging someone. I really feel for you people on judgement day. And if this is a bunch of Firefighters talking their pompous crap. Nice brotherhood. It sounds more like jealousy to me. The jokes on you all.

  13. Poor Tristen, now his MySpace profile shows he is "frustrated", guess by now he can find anyone to blame his stupidity on. How could someone "plant evidence" on both of his computers????? The disservice he has done to his fellow honorable firefighters can't be measured!!

  14. Anonymous, I do appreciate your blind faith in a friend or acquaintence. However, after a career in law enforcement, my faith is somewhat more logical.

    ReplyDelete
  15. And how do you know I'm not in law enforcement? And if you were such a good law enforcement official, you wouldn't be smashing someones name every chance you got on the internet. That's real professional.

  16. Anonymous, maybe after this is ajudicated we can discuss further.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hey Bill, you are still spreading crap on other sites aren't you? So I guess you haven't held up your end of this?

    ReplyDelete
  18. A......I agree with "Bill".......your the one full of "crap" if you believe Tristen..........Most pple who have known him the last 5 years suspected something about thi piece of crap...........Where do you get your info about computer being in X wife's home and he's been outa there for months..........apparently the dates the FBI found on Puter he was present in her home........and she finally had to tell him to get out..........the slug would of hung around for free rent forever.

  19. Anne, just as I suspected, youre probably friends with the ex-wife? Hmm? You sound just as crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  20. And by the way ANNE I was not the original poster as anonymous that said it was in the wife. Can't wait to see when Karma comes and visits you and Bill for smashing other people. I don't care what was said was found. You are not the court and therefor, innocent until further notice.

    ReplyDelete
  21. OK Anonymous, you finally identified yourself with the comment about "Karma" - you are that rocket scientist EARL from the TV show. Talk to you later.

    ReplyDelete
  22. NO, that personality trait sounds more like it more fits you. Your a cop or were a cop. So, Barney Fife? Guess its so slow in Mayberry that you have to sit on your computer all day and pick on people. Idiot.

  23. Let me rephrase my last post........not shown as am sure it was deemed inapproiate.......Anonymous, please accept my apology for my comments about CAPTAIN Cruse. And please know you have an open invitation to kiss my sweet wide butt when he is rightfully found guilty. I will discuss this with you after the trial, or plea bargain.

    ReplyDelete
  24. No thanks, you are wrong and you obviously can't take what you shell out. Crying in the corner now? God only knows what disease anyone would get that would be willing to kiss your butt so NO THANKS!
    have a nice life idiot! And if you are going to smash on someone, get the name right, it is spelled CRUZ.

  25. Now, now....when you aren't "winning" do you always resort to name calling? My offer remains open.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I believe you called names first BILL. I'm over this. You should be too, or are you obsessed?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Please apologize to Bill...........I said you resort to name calling....ANNIE B.

  28. I just hope that the New Year will bring early resolution to this matter. That should allow the families to begin healing and getting on with their lives. Anonymous, again I offer to discuss this further after it is resolved, maybe at that time you will be willing to identify yourself also.

  29. Annie B. says..See more about our friendly firefighter Tristen on Firefighter Nation and St. Baldwicks. He loves the limelight and he'll get plenty when he goes to trial.

  30. FRIENDLY READER SAYS ANNIE B NEEDS TO GET A HOBBY.

  31. nie B. responds to friendly poster, okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, I'll get a hobby until this is over. It does take a lot out of me this way. Think I'll paint the house.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hey Friendly Reader................is a plea bargin the same as an admission of guilt but gets you less time?? Would he still be a registered sex offender? Would he be allowed to be around young children without supervision? Just wondering as I pick out paint colors.........Can anyone answer?

    ReplyDelete
  33. An ex-family member was arrested over a year ago for Internet Luring of what he thought was a 13 year old girl. He made a plea agreement, was in jail for 6 months then only got 2 years probation. He is a registered sex offender for 10 years, maybe for life if a hearing coming up this year goes good to determine him a sexual violent predator. As far as restrictions, he is still allowed around young children as far as I know. He lives across the street from a school! Every state is different, as is every case. I pray justice is served in this one. The legal system let my family down.

  34. all of this aggression , does anyone know when the trial is?

    ReplyDelete
  35. We sll wonder the same thing anonomis, it seems like the "justice system" just lets those he harmed go on and on without resolve. I wonder if he will ever come to trial, or plea out, and continue his behavior another place.

  38. Last time I checked the Bible says that only God can judge. I can't believe that some of you used to call yourself his friend. If he in fact is guilty of these crimes, wouldn't a true friend by his side to make sure he gets the help he needs? Nice Christian friends you are all! What a bunch of hypocrites!

  40. Wonder how many of his friends will show up at the arraignment on the 29th of June....probably only his attorney to enter a plea..

    ReplyDelete
  41. I used to be more than his friend, he is known for his horrible treatment of a very sick family member and he excused his choice to forsake his children , by saying his fire subordinates were important than his wife important then his own children. He shows a new personality whenever he changws roles, but he is scum, pure evilscum. God help him, he is evil and continues to lie to his children and to try and turn them against their mother. He pays no child support, he is a loser that should rot in prison. I hope his new career as personal trainer makes him strong enough to endure what his lawyer can plea bargin or the prison time he serves. He will come to trial or plea bargin and his children will suffer forever. Why can't you just once, Tristen, think of your children first? Anne B.

  42. just read all this bs...i only knew him from GPSTC and did not now him personally but.. chicken shit verbal people who won't show names... its simple as this if he is guilty he is a piece of shit and deserves to rott in hell for ever. if he is inocent then he deserves an apology .. all i can say is the law enforcement agency does not put that much wok into a hunch.. if ya'll are going to be so vocal then show ur name and dont be chicken shit.... btw what has happened to him at this point

  43. As his exwife and mother of his children, I would really appreciate all of you stopping this. I have refrained from making comments, but people posting things that are personal and private do not make the situation better at all.

    No matter how you feel about him, this is not about YOU. You may have an indirect link to this, but saying things that are OTHER PEOPLES business needs to stop!

    This is a horrible situation. It is not easy for my children and for my daughter to read the things that are said, and YES..she knows who you are that are saying them...makes it very hard on her.

  44. Bill, you seemed obsessed with him! Do you have a little crush on him?
    Seriously, get laid, get a life, or seek professional help!

  50. He pleaded guilty on all counts... He is now a lifetime registered sex offender. He can now never be alone with his children until they turn 18. There is no closure. He screwed up his life. He ruined our marriage. He destroyed what could have been a wonderful life. He is a convicted sex offender.

  56. Anyone know what has happened at this point? He worked for me for about a year up until this arrest 3/15. I had no idea about him until that point. I didn't run a background because he was an ex fire captain and I assumed he was a good person. I actually got a text mess. from my customer where we were working informing me that my guy was on the news and arrested for child pornography. Not the way I like doing business. Luckily my customers did not have any young children. Then I would have felt worse then I already did. They were understanding. But definitely felt my business took a hit. Maybe some previous customers saw this and I will never work for them again. I had my then 4 yr old son around him a few times. I was always there but still. I don't know what the exact details were, ages, sex etc. Don't want to know. My wife was furious. He tried to say the tablet or computer the GBI found belonged to another employee of mine. The police then called my other employee questioning him. Was a rough time. Wondering what happened with all of this.
