No you do not, you don't just stumble on Child porn, even if your on 4chan your not going to end up with a cache full of CP.

No. BUT THAT IS EXACTLY MY POINT.
There should be some discretion within the law. Under a law that an image in the cache of your computer can be prosecuted, simple accidental exposure
could send someone to jail.
Now, there was a story in BC about 6 months ago? Where pictures were taken of a naked 16 year old and plastered across facebook, it eventually became
a case with much more involved in it. However, people were prosecuted for the pictures on facebook. Does that mean, every person that clicked on it
should be prosecuted? As information sharing is so easy that you can simply click, link and someone else can see it, it doesn't give time for people
assess whether or not images are legal.
And then 4chan was mentioned as well. Better just to stay away from that....
