Why is the FBI in the business of distributing child pornography?

That's not what happens. Read the document in this thread. They put up the site, and then members sign up and throw up their own collection of material to gain the capacity to download other stuff and/or gain rep.

There is no victim's blessing.


I didnt say that it said that. Was just stating my feeling on it.
Also its deepweb.. its not open to everyone and their brother like surface web. If you understand how deep works.. then you know that you have to know where you are going to get there. Its not like someone can stumble upon it. If they are uploading collections.. fantastic. If they are downloading images and or video.. fantastic. Thats how you can proceed legally and they cant fight it.. the FBI only provided the venue. Depending on what they are uploading, its very possible to end the abuse and/or solve missing cases for many children. I think its dirty business, but in the end its necessary.

All the 3 letter agencies have a fine tradition of fighting crime by being directly involved in it, you know..importing tonnage of coke, running guns, child porn sites..you get the picture.

The government thinks having these sites catches predators, in all actuality making these sites available creates a space to make these people think this sort of behavior is ok. I won't even get on the ethics of this approach.

But what do I know about catching predators.

Depending on the site, you don't have to download to view. I know how all this tech works. The FBI caught less than 1% of registered members, and only charge about 4% of those who were tracked. How many didn't bother to register? Again, the only way they caught people was through:

A: malware via _javascript
B: controlling exit nodes used by the perps
C: information leaked through payment, or registering

All you have to do is know their techniques to get around them. Even if you don't know squat you have a good chance of not being caught. Judging by the stats, more people than not knew basic measures to take.

If you're okay with this, that's cool, but I'm on the fence about this one.

LOL, though it's not really funny, but what a question.....

I have a hankering to say here that they might tell you they are fighting something, when they are really copping to it...
Surely, we can all see that this is what's currently going on, without naming or blaming the FBI, for it supersedes any alphabet agencies' names, I think....

That's just the way it works, from entertainment, to business, to filtering down sorta crap....frankly......
Many of us see it that way, I think, and know that's real, but can do absolutely nothing about it, no matter how reprehensible and nauseating we find it....

Perhaps the FBI should have asked the mean old confused criminal to nicely just stop looking at bad pics.. Im sure the criminals would have listened because after all, its never their fault so why wouldnt they stop.

The world has bad people in it who often do bad things and sometimes you need to take certain steps to stop them.

Meanwhile in the real world, every hardcore waste of flesh criminal is begging that we just operate on the "good side" of the ethical meter ..



So, lets bait these people into doing something illegal that they might not have done otherwise...yeah, thats morally right.
