I'm glad these sick minded criminals are being brought to justice.

Some Highlights:

So the US has arrested 190 people over child pornography and rescued 18 children in the process.

The US Justice Department also listed Sweden, Serbia and the Netherlands as involved in the operation.

Arrests were made mostly in the US but also took place in countries including Spain, Argentina, the UK and the Philippines.

This operation uncovered a dangerous and depraved group of criminals who were devoted to trading sexually explicit images of children under the age of five.

A 28-year-old man in Michigan was found to have more than 1,200 images and 109 videos of child sex abuse on computers and media storage devices


Your thoughts on this and also on pedophiles? I've heard of people talking about pedophiles aren't bad by trying to compare them to how gays used to be outcasts and looked down upon as well.. preaching about how they may be openly accepted in society some day as well..

The biggest difference between pedophilia and homosexuality is that children are not considered by any first world government to be mature enough to consent to sexual interactions, and any such sexual interaction as documented in the pornography seized from those 190 individuals is necessarily abusive and deplorable. An adult man or woman of sound (homosexual) mind, however, is perfectly capable of engaging in harmless, consensual sex with another of the same gender and sexuality, even on video. Being attracted to children is more of a curse than anything, since there's no way for someone like that to safely, harmlessly indulge in his or her sexual desires. That's pitiable, but it doesn't make abusing children acceptable.

Well, I'm not saying that I support cp but these guys...if they had some smarter people they'd be able to get way more than 190. Yes, I'm saying the people who share this material is doing a better job hiding it, than the justice department is able to keep up with.

This is not true, like I said, cp is so easily accessed anyone with a decent computer knowledge can get to it. And even worse, Its really hard to get caught. I mean REALLY REALLY hard. That's because in America, there are so many steps one has to go through to obtain evidence. If the Justice department wants to sstop teh spread of cp, they are targeting the wrong area.

That's why I also think that democracy is destroying America.

I wonder what age most of the victims were. If they were around 15 years old, can it really be called "child porn"?

I feel kind of sorry for pedophiles though. Not those who actually watch child porn, but those who have to live their whole life being attracted to children. Those guys could watch hentai though, unless they live in a country were depictions of children is illegal too.

I dunno how I feel about pedos, since the only ones we really hear about are the child molesters or are associated with them. If it's an attraction that they can't help, but don't go harming innocent children then I can't judge them too harshly.

On the other hand, whether they act on their attraction or not, I bet most of the cp produced is either forced upon these innocents or they're too young to even know what they're doing (5 years old, seriously?). So by creating a "market" for more, they are sorta indirectly harming them anyway.

Good, I'm glad they're taking action to stop these people. My Chemistry teacher when I was in ninth grade quite recently got caught with his laptop filled the brim with child pornography, real fucked up. He always used to try and get me to stay behind and clean the tables for him as well, Luckily I would make quick getaways from those. This all took place in apparently 'one of the best public schools in the county', yeah right. Makes you realise people like that are lurking anywhere.

Yea, that's why it's so messed up that some countries have laws against manga/anime depicting young people. If it's an attraction they can't do anything with, wouldn't it be better to let them atleast watch anime/manga so they wouldn't have to watch cp with real children involved?

The way I see it, the market will always be there and therefore they shouldn't make alternative media, like texts, anime and manga, illegal. It seems kind of ridiculous to criminalize something that probably won't do any harm, but may help.

I honestly don't think it should be criminalized, just keep it far away from google searches, most of the people watching that stuff aren't a threat and those who are would be with or without child porn.
Also I love children.

Contradiction. Unless you mean you love children like that.

When pedophiles find communities of other pedophiles sharing pornography, they're able to rationalize their condition and see it as more "normal" and acceptable. This leads to them abusing more children and creating more illegal pornography. If it weren't criminalized, the problem would be MUCH bigger.

It's surprising that there were arrests for possession of CP here in Guam too.

They failed at hiding from the law. Pedophiles are sick, but it can't be helped if something in their life made them become like that.

I hope you wouldn't hate someone just for being attracted to children.
