Good thread. I agree 100% that this will probably be used. You know that show to catch a predator? Well, I had read that they were using shady
practices to get the pedophiles they were after, entrapment, abuse while the cameras were off, etc. So I tell a bunch of friends and family how I
think that someone should look into this, because if they can take away the rights for pedophiles today, tomorrow it could be potheads, and on down
I can tell you that of about 20 people I have talked to about this, only 1 agreed with me. The vast consensus was that if they were pedophiles, then
the government can do WHATEVER they want to nail them, and punish them in the harshest ways possible, even torture. I said that all criminals are
supposed to have rights, and that was one of the ideas that should make our country great, and people said they didn't care about the Constitution if
children were at risk. Of course they also called me some choice names.
Also, if you read the thread on Max Hardcore on ATS, you can see how many ATS members claim that they should get him at any costs, no matter if it
violates his rights or not, merely because in his videos he has ADULT women dress up like children and have sex with them.
It just goes to show that all rationality can go out the window when it comes to child porn. I not only think that it will be used to heavily censor
the internet, but I look for the government to accuse people of being pedophiles who hit a nerve with them. It would be so easy. You discover
something the government doesn't like. They get a warrant. They slip some childporn onto your hard drive. BAM! Friends, family, your neighbors,
no one would be willing to listen to you. You could rot i jail forever and no one would ever question it. Its very scary stuff.
