DOZENS of men have been arrested for child pornography and abuse offences - including community leaders, a police officer, a teacher and a youth worker - after the nation's biggest anti-pedophile investigation.
The six-month joint operation by the Australian Federal Police and state police forces uncovered several cases of child molestation and highlighted the astonishing way in which pedophiles form secret communities in cyberspace and use the global reach of the internet to trade child exploitation images.

I can remember when 'simple' porn was considered a crime. I think it still is in Canada.
I can remember when 'simple' porn was considered a crime. I think it still is in Canada. I remember seeing a trucker have his sleeper searched and they found a few books in it and hauled him off to jail. More power to the smart cops working these details.
Not all child molesters are pedophiles???
I really don't mean to argue with you, since I sincerely believe that the information you got, even if from him directly is all you can go on.
It is a defense I have heard several times from a pedophile but it is a lie.
It is especially useful as a defense in court and to be allowed in society again. But I can't emphasize enough....It is a lie he told. (the age of the victim is very relevant I should point out I guess.)

Just because he molested a kid, does not necessarily mean that he is a pedophile. Just because I prefer blonds doesn't mean I won't get it on with a brunette, for example.
If the kid was...I will throw out a solid age nice and far below the grey area. If the kid was 6 yrs old or less. The guy you know is a pedophile.
oh, and pedophiles never are busted on their first crime.
If you want to defend this guy fine, but to convince me of anything different you are going to have to give me the age of the victim...the circumstances are not important in the slighest, just the age.
