Was Joe Price Out of Control?

In the recently released affidavit for search warrant, it reveals that “Contained within [Price’s office computer] were a large number of male pornographic pictures that included depictions of Sado-Masochistic behavior and bondage.”

Now, I don’t think anyone will judge Price for what he does in the privacy of his own home, but you would think that a partner at a major Washington,DC law firm would know better than to have fetish pictures on his office computer. And if he knew better, which one could certainly argue, then was his sexual behavior out of control?  And if it was out of control, was it then, maybe, a cry for help?  Unable to control his behavior, he sought to leave a trail that would reveal him?  A person who doesn’t want to be known for his fetish practices would NOT have photos on his OFFICE computer.
Was the pressure that Price was under getting to him, and this was his way of handling it? From all accounts, Price was the patriarch of this “family” which included Zaborsky, Ward, his brother, and his brother’s partner, the downstair’s roommate, Sarah Morgan, the lesbian couple, with whom he and Zaborsky fathered two children.
He recently made partner at Arent Fox in June of 2006, two months before the murder.  One can assume that this “large number” of photographs didn’t begin after he was named partner. Wasn’t it incredibly risky to have this collection on your computer before one is named a partner?  Was the pressure to make partner so intense that Price was acting out?
Or does Price’s behavior demonstrate that he thought he was above getting caught, so he didn’t need to follow the rules?  This is the behavior of a sociopath, and very reminiscent of Scott Peterson.
Does it show that there was an aspect of Joe Price’s behavior that was out of control prior to the murder of Robert Wone on August 2, 2006?

    He’s no homophobe, trust me.
    Joe Price was such such a sexual deviate that he makes Bob Crane look like a choirboy.

    Thanks for the comment. Exactly how do my comments label me a homophobe, Anonymous?

    Would it be smart for a straight lawyer to have photos on his office computer of him and his female dominatrix? My point is that anyone who doesn’t want to run the risk of being discovered would include their work place – straight or gay.

    Just discovered this site and am fascinated with this story.

    I haven’t formed an opinion about who is or is not guilty, but I do have a comment about this post and Price’s pornography at work. I speak as a recovering addict.

    First, if drugs were involved, then it’s important to stop trying to find logic in his actions. Drugs make you do crazy things. Addicts in recovery will tell you amazing stories about things they did to get drugs or things they did while on drugs. There is no logic.

    Secondly, Price sounds a bit Sexually Compulsive. You cannot apply logic to a sex addict. They risk it all for the “hit” of a sexual connection. I have heard stories from other sex addicts in recovery that defy logic. Regular people would not take such risks. But for a sex addict, risk is part of the high they get. And if bondage/discipline was involved, then the high is even higher.

    Keeping pornography on a work computer is not surprising at all.

    I simply wanted to appreciate you all over again. I’m not certain what I might have implemented without the actual advice shared by you relating to such a theme. Previously it was an absolute alarming problem in my circumstances, nevertheless looking at a specialised way you processed the issue made me to jump for happiness. I am thankful for this guidance and expect you realize what a powerful job that you’re getting into educating others all through a site. I know that you have never got to know any of us.
