A website offering discreet puchase of child pornography to subscribers was what led federal investigators to make the arrests. According to federal prosecutors, more arrests are pending.
 



www.comcast.net
The case originated in New Jersey, but quickly spread to 22 states. The defendants were charged with either possession or receipt of child pornography. Additional arrests are expected.

"When I say `hard-core' pornography, I am talking about child pornography that includes images of children as young as six months involved in bondage and sodomy," U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie said. "This type of depraved conduct is something a civilized society cannot tolerate."

Among those arrested were a Bible camp counselor from Vancouver, Wash.; a Boy Scout leader from Mission, Texas; and a pharmaceutical researcher in New Jersey.

These cases just leave me at a loss for words.

I feel the need to bring them to the fore and post them here because people close to me have been subject to and had their lives profoundly affected by abuse.

I see their pain and difficulty and I know that the victims of these crimes are destined to suffer the effects of their abuse at the hands of these monsters long after the events depicted have faded from our memory.

My heart goes out to them, and I hope in the future we may be able to educate parents and children and punish perpetrators to the point that this scourge can one day be eliminated from society forever.

My thoughts go out to the abused children, but I have no such feelings for the men.

They should be locked up for life.

Other than that, I have nothing else (that wouldn't violate the T&C) to say.

Monsters.

This is a good thing. By the same token.....

The time will come when those purchasing anti-Bush bumperstickers over the Internet will be arrested also.

You make a good point Dg and I agree with you, sometimes I wonder about that one also.

But beside that I will like to see the faces and names of the people caught purchasing any type of material that involves children and pornography.

Well, I'd like to see the list of the ages and possible consent of the
children, but even I admit, doing that to 6 month old, and rape in
general is, well, very bad.

Though I'll say this, even if I find it horrible, they (nor anyone)
deserves the death sentence.

And if there's possible therapy possible, they should be offered the
chance, and if they agree, they should be given such therapy.

Several important points have been raised here.

dg- I share your concern that President Bush's "pre-emptive strike" doctrine could be mis-applied to those on the Internet exercising their Constitutional right to free speech. It is just a matter of degree, and we are closer than most would like to admit to that unacceptable eventuality.

iori- I share your attitude about the death penalty. The Bible, which, like it or not, is the source of Western systems of law, does say "Those who live by the sword will die by the sword." It also says "Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord." Death penalty advocates are splitting a fine hair that I want no part of.

It pains me greatly to see these cases prosecuted after the fact, when the abuse has already occurred and done its often irreparable damage. That is why I believe the answer may lie, in part, in education and encouragement of parents and children to recognize the warning signs and speak up, as well as strict penalties, short of death, for perpetrators. Public exposure, as marg advocates, may be another part of the answer to ending this horrible scourge on our society.

they don't actually display such information publicly in America? I thought it was daily practise... I know they do it in the UK. which is bloody good. at least you'll know what they look like. here in Sweden it's..rare.

Once convicted, they are required to register as sex offenders in the places they go to live after release from prison or sentencing. There may also be a national database. I don't think this goes far enough. These animals need to be completely exposed and held permanently accountable for their actions. Then others with similar aberrant urges might think twice about their own behavior.

I agree totally but we should go one step further, the torture they put kids through has a detrimental affect on their lives forever!
I think they should in the least be castrated if returning into society. but better still they sould never be allowed freedom again, these monsters are better kept locked up on an island under the watch of the death squad should they try to escape.

My heart goes out to the victims even those whos lives have been cut short which is all to often the case...

Castrating would be a bad idea, as it could easily be considered
cruel and unusual punishment, something forbidden by our constitution.

As for indefinate sentencing, well it is possible for people to get
therapy and become normal productive members of society again.

Youshould do some research, paedophiles never really respond to treatment and become non-offenders, they are processed out of prisons and have the highest amount of recidivism of any felons.

I'm not talking about Paedophiles, I'm talking about rapists, as that
is waht the people in the article are, they raped very young children,
there's a difference between that and general Paedophilia.

By what token?

What sort of logic can take you from the topic of child pornography to political bumper stickers?

Is there no topic into which you cannot interject your disdain for the president?

I think that is part of the problem.

I would like to see those who were selling, not the ones who were buying.

For those who were buying, we may say that they are not normal and have a psychological problem that makes them act like that, but those who were making money with those guys' diseased minds and those children suffering are always the ones that get away, people get upset with the sick people who buy that kind of thing and usually ignore the ones who sell it and the ones who produce it.

Those are the real criminals, they do not have any psychological problem that makes them have that behaviour, they only think of getting money, regardless of the people who must suffer so they can get rich.

Luckily, this kind of news has been relatively common in the last months, but I am afraid that this will only make those people producing and selling that type of thing try to find different ways of achieving the same results they had until now.

I say burn-em and burn-em good.


Hopefully they get jail-mates like bubba. (a lifer with a tude)
(sorry, just noticed that OldTimer2 said the same, but I felt compelled to say it again.)

Yes, the damage has already been done, but it's people like the ones they busted that perpetuate this kinda market activity. The sooner busted, the less future damage may occur.
