Not realistic

Postby Ice.Maiden » 20 Oct 2014, 14:36

So it's considered that all 50,000 (?) paedophiles in the UK who download pornographic images won't be brought to justice, as it's "not realistic".

They'll be letting all of them off the hook next! What a poor justice system we have. :bleh:

Why is it upsetting that 50,000 people will not be prosecuted for viewing child abuse on line, but nobody is going after the people who put the material on line in the first place? If the same amount of effort were put into stopping the owners of these terrible web sites, there would be nothing for the pedophiles to view.

Quite right Yogi, but of course, it's paedophiles who put the horrible stuff up in the first place. Get a few of them, and the line can gradually be traced back to the original culprits, as they showed on a TV documentary I watched. I know it's not an easy task for the police, but these people want stopping.

When someone downloads this kind of material, they obviously have an interest in it, and know others who ... know others ... and by checking out their computers, they can sometimes get to the original source. It was an interesting programme, if harrowing.

it is rather peculiar how we accept virii as part of the cost doing internet business. same as you never hear about the people who run the dark net or nasty porn sites; the cops pick up prostitutes and johns, but how often do they nail the pimps?

and even more baffling, they set up sting operations to catch guys looking for prostitutes! unless a particular john is dangerous... wtf?

so... back to the question: why do they hound just the pathetic pieces of crap eyeing kid porn and not get onto the network as a whole? and if they do, why don't we hear about it?

The NCA (National Crime Agency) works with Interpol to try and trace the source of these hideous sites. Currently, 660 people in the UK're under investigation, but they sometimes use TOR and other dark places which aren't easily accessible unless those who wish to view the vile stuff know how to get in. Even so, once our police have enough on someone, they often set up stings which result in the prosecution of the said person or persons. There are still "ordinary" porn sites which hide some of the worst things, only available to those who know the passwords, but these change frequently.

I think that too much time's spent on collaring prostitutes and their customers. The pimps often get away with it because the girls won't speak out, or pretend that they're working on their own - for fear of reprisals - but child porn's another kettle of fish.

People who view it're no better than those who produce the hideous stuff. They get sexual gratification from looking at such material, and the ones who actually commit the acts're not only abusers, but sometimes rapists and murderers. Most people consider them to be the scum of the earth who deserve to be put away for good. It also sparks outrage when we hear about child brides, because although it's considered acceptable in some societies, it still entails the selling of young and vulnerable girls who have to suffer being raped, often by men who're old enough to be their grandfathers. Hiding the act under the "legality" of marriage doesn't alter the fact that many of these girls, particularly in India and parts of Africa, suffer horribly. Whether it's "customary" or not revolts most people in the west, but child porn must be the one thing that's most despised worldwide.
