That Old Chesnut - Live On It, For One Year - Then We Will See What You Decide


N.Y. sex offender law not punitive: appeals court

"NEW YORK - The state's sex offender registration law is remedial, not punitive, and therefore does not violate the U.S. Constitution's ex post facto clause or double jeopardy when applied retroactively, a New York state appeals court ruled on Thursday.

The Appellate Division, First Department, said the 1996 Sex Offender Registration Act, or SORA, is not a punitive statute, even though several amendments have imposed stricter registration and notification requirements.

"It may be true that subjecting sex offenders to lifetime registration and notification requirements ... increases the difficulties and embarrassment [sic] a sex offender may endure," wrote Justice Richard Andrias for a unanimous four-judge panel. "However ... the fact that the restrictions are difficult and cumbersome [sic] is not enough to make them unconstitutional."

"Andrias cited a 1997 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision, Doe v. Pataki, that found SORA does not violate the ex post facto clause when applied retroactively because the law was intended to protect the public [how?] and enhance law enforcement's ability to investigate future sex crimes [pre-crimes], not to punish convicted offenders. [a death penalty, for some]"

Murder of April Jones 'proves [sic] porn link to sexual assaults'

"Internet search companies such as Google came under pressure tonight to block child pornography after a children’s charity said that the sites “fuel the fantasies” of paedophiles [sic] who then sexually assault children [sic].

Bridger’s laptop computer contained a cache of images of children being raped and abused.

As Mark Bridger was jailed for life for the abduction and murder of five-year-old April Jones, the NSPCC said there was a “worrying link” between his looking at indecent images online and the crime he went on to commit [did he have breakfast, too?].

It called for “effective measures” [sic] to curb the ease [sic] with which extreme pornography and indecent images of children can be accessed."

A little sorry to laugh, April, but they are making a mockery of your tragedy.

Internet pornography: never again

"Internet pornography is sometimes abusive and often violent. Mark Bridger, convicted yesterday of the murder of April Jones, had compiled a store of it.

Violent pornography is easily and freely accessible, and at most requires only a credit card. The link between such material and actual violence, most commonly against women and children, is disputed – occasional studies claim there is, as one headline had it, a sunny side to smut.

But there is strong evidence that at the very least it is addictive, can normalise violence, and at the same time diminishes sympathy for its victims. It is a kind of incitement to hate. Abusive and violent pornography should be banned. But that is easier to say than to do."

Campaigners who blame online porn for child murders are letting paedophiles [shame you said that, Brendan] off the hook

"According to John Carr, an adviser to the Government on child safety on the internet, in the wake of the conviction of Mark Bridger for the murder of April Jones we should clamp down on porn on the internet. Not just illegal porn, but legal porn too. He says Google and others should set their search settings to the "safest option", meaning that everyone who used them would be blocked from finding both legal porn and the viler, more underground stuff. He reckons that putting up "more barriers" to porn will help to prevent certain men from crossing the line from being perverted to being murderous, and thus "more children will be safe".

On both a practical level and as a matter of principle, Carr's proposals don't add up and should be rejected. Practically speaking, it simply isn't tenable to suggest that the availability of porn on the internet is endangering children, putting them at greater risk of being kidnapped and murdered by perverts than they would be if web-based nastiness wasn't available. In truth, the unstoppable spread of the internet has coincided with a decline in the number of children dying violent deaths. The number of kids who die violently is lower today than at any time since records were kept on such grisly matters. In England and Wales, violent child deaths fell by 40 per cent between the mid-1970s and 2010, from an annual toll of 136 to the mercifully lower 84 today. Most of those kids are killed by people they know. The number of children killed by strangers has always been very low, and this, too, is falling – in recent years, in this era of porn being available at the click of a button, it is running at about six a year. To argue that there's a correlation between the availability of online porn and the killing of children is to turn the facts completely upside down."

Block child pornography on Net, say MPs [WTF?] after April Jones' killer Mark Bridger is jailed

"MPs have called for internet service providers to block violent and child pornography, in the wake of Mark Bridger being jailed for the kidnap and murder of five-year-old April Jones.

Keith Vaz, the chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, told The Times that the case has shown [how, Keith?] that online images of child sex abuse [sic] need to be removed.

And Jim Sheridan, who sits on the Commons culture committee, said that violent sexual images, including those depicting children, should be blocked.

He told the Times: "I know it's extremely difficult to ban it (but) I think with the political will and the technology, if you can do it, we should be doing it."

April's murder is the second high-profile case this month to feature disturbing extreme pornography"

Calls for ban on ‘vile trade’ of child violence websites

"MPs have called for a clampdown on websites displaying violent and pornographic images of children after it emerged that Mark Bridger had regularly accessed extreme material.

Bridger’s most visited website offers videos and pictures of beheadings, burn victims, impalements, murders, and, most tellingly, dead children.

Even the titles of many of the images are too graphic to reproduce here. Under a category entitled “dead children” there is a section headed “what people searched for to land here”. It includes “child sexual abuse” and “dead children gore”". [ah, now we see what your little game is]

Disagreement Reigns Over Child Abuse [sic] Action

"Google and Microsoft query what else they can do to stop people accessing child pornography, amid calls for more to be done.

The revelation that Mark Bridger used search engines Bing and Google to try [ah] and find images of child abuse [sic] has led to predictable calls for "more to be done".

While it's not immediately apparent that any of the images the killer of April Jones had on his mobile phone were directly sourced through search engines [ah], neither Google nor Microsoft (who run Bing) would be so bold as to argue that child pornography cannot be obtained in this way [so, how does that work, then?].

Both companies maintain that whenever they are made aware of illegal content they act immediately to delist it and inform the police. And they themselves are actively looking for this material in an attempt to limit its spread. [indeed]

Software, in addition to human resources, is used to try and filter out explicit or illegal imagery. [indeed]

But the tenacity of those supplying this illegal material should not be underestimated – abhorrent though it is to consider, [why?] there is a market hungry for child pornography. {is the customer always right?]"

Children 1st seeks tougher [sic] court action over online child abuse images [sic]

"Children 1st said courts could and should do more to protect children [sic] from exploitation

A Scottish children's charity has called on the courts to impose maximum jail sentences on those found guilty of viewing child pornography online.

It follows the conviction, earlier this week, of Mark Bridger for the murder of five-year-old April Jones in Wales last year.

Bridger had viewed images of young children on his computer.

Children 1st said the case highlighted [sic] the need to use every legal means possible to protect children from harm [sic].

Bridger's conviction sparked renewed UK-wide calls for much tougher restrictions on those seeking to access online images of abuse.

In Scotland, Children 1st said it believed the full range of sentencing powers was not being used and claimed that penalties imposed on those who have viewed child pornography were not as harsh as for other sex crimes." [do you know why?].

Want child porn blocked? Meet the IWF

"The causality of any of this aside — because it’s frankly not clear that porn leads to child abuse and murder — Carr is calling for Google to default to a level appropriate for children. This is essentially an extension of MP Claire Perry’s call for a UK-wide, opt-out network-level porn filter, but passing it off to Google — an American corporation — instead. That campaign failed after the government ran a consultation that asked Britons if they wanted a UK-wide porn ban — and overwhelmingly they don’t "

You Could Not Provide Evidence, In The Past - Can You Now, Or Is This Just More Communal Blurting?

A Good Start


DBS start filtering cautions and convictions

"As some of you may have seen from the news, the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) has started, as of yesterday, a process of ‘filtering’ for cautions and convictions held on the Police National Computer.

Today, we’ve published our own detailed guide on how the DBS filtering rules will work. This can be downloaded here ( .

Although we’ve known this has been coming for quite a few weeks now, it wasn’t until last week that we found out exactly when it would be coming into force. It wasn’t until yesterday when, along with everybody else, we got a chance to see the guidance that the DBS had written and, in particular, saw the full list of offences that are exempt from filtering."



"Applicants’ rights

Usually a job applicant has no legal obligation to reveal spent convictions. If an applicant has a conviction that has become spent, the employer must treat the applicant as if the conviction has not happened. A refusal to employ a rehabilitated person on the grounds of a spent conviction is unlawful under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA)1974.

Certain areas of employment that are exempt under the ROA 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 [also The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2012], for which employers may ask about spent convictions. This is known as asking an exempted question. When answering, the applicant would have a legal obligation to reveal spent convictions.

The code of practice states that information on a DBS certificate should only be used in the context of a policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders. This is designed to protect applicants from unfair discrimination on the basis of non-relevant past convictions. The DBS has developed a specimen policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders to help guide organisations.

The minimum age at which someone can be asked to apply for a DBS check is 16 years old.

To find out more information about who is eligible for a DBS check consult the DBS check eligibility guide".


"The Ministry of Justice has stated that organisations should not insist that a DBS check forms part of a recruitment exercise or bid when tendering for contracts, unless the services provided meet the criteria for an eligible DBS check as defined by the exceptions, as this would breach employment law.

Standard checks – To be eligible for a standard level DBS check the position must be included in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (ROA) 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.

Enhanced checks – To be eligible for an enhanced level DBS check, the position must be included in both the ROA Exceptions Order and in Police Act Regulations.

Enhanced checks with children’s and/or adults’ barred list check(s) – To be eligible to request a check of the children’s or adults’ barred lists, the position must meet the new definition of regulated activity. There are a small number of other positions for which you can also request list checks."

DBS check eligibility guide


DBS check requests: guidance for employers



Response from Ministry of Justice (Jeremy Wright)


The critical prerequisite for the commencement of the reforms is to put in place a system for producing basic disclosure certificates, which show unspent convictions, which reflects the new rehabilitation periods in England and Wales. Until we do that there would be no way for an individual to obtain an official statement of their unspent convictions under the new rules.

Currently, basic disclosures reflecting the existing rehabilitation periods are available from Disclosure Scotland and this service is provided to residents of England and wales as well as scotland. However, the reforms to the RoA only revise rehabilitation periods for England and Wales, leaving the position in Scotland unchanged under its legislation. This complicates matters and creates two different rehabilitation regimes within the UK.

One option to address this situation is to agree with Disclosure Scotland that they will provide two differential basic disclosure services, one reflecting the rules in Scotland and the other the rules in England and Wales. Another option is for the Disclosure and Barring Service to initiate a basic disclosure service for England and Wales which adheres to the reformed rules in this jurisdiction. Neither of these options is straightforward and there are significant business and technical issues to work through.

Whilst this Department leads on the rehabilitation of offenders regime, it is the Home Office which has oversight of the Disclosure and Barring Service and the Scottish Government which has overall responsibility for Disclosure Scotland.

I cannot give a specific commencement date at present, but I recognise the frustration the delay is causing and can only reiterate that our aim is to have the reforms in place at the earliest possible point."

April Jones trial: Mark Bridger guilty of abduction and murder

"Mark Bridger has been found guilty of abducting and murdering five-year-old April Jones who disappeared while playing near her home last year.

Bridger, 47, of Ceinws, mid Wales, denied murder claiming he accidentally ran April over and could not recall where he had put her body.

The jury at Mold Crown Court took four hours and six minutes to convict him.

April went missing on 1 October 2012 near her Machynlleth home sparking the biggest search in UK police history.

Watched by April's parents Paul, 41, and 43-year-old Coral, the judge told the court he would sentence Bridger later on Thursday. He also told the jury there was only one sentence, that of life, and he now had to decide the minimum term."

He was not, he was sentenced, in that respect (Mr Bridger's offences, as charged and found, are not 'Sexual' Offences) ...

i.e. Obiter Dictum, even the Ratio Decidendum, is not of guilt (i.e. In his sentencing remarks, the judge said Bridger had abducted April "for a sexual purpose and then murdered her and disposed of her body to hide the evidence of your sexual abuse of her". "Mr Justice Griffith-Williams said Bridger "was on the prowl for a young girl" on the night he killed April; He added: "There is no doubt in my mind that you are a paedophile. [sic] "

“It seems [sic] Bridger lived in a fantasy world [sic] which included looking at child abuse images [sic] online. For some time we have been concerned about the growing number of these obscene [sic] images which are becoming more easily available and can fuel the fantasies [sic] of offenders like Bridger. This case points [sic] to the ever-growing evidence [sic] that there is a worrying link [sic] between looking at this vile [sic] kind of material and committing other serious sexual assaults [sic].

April Jones murder - the full story: Alcoholic paedophile [sic] Mark Bridger turned online sex fantasies into grim reality*

"Mark Bridger was an alcoholic paedophile [sic] who was infatuated with young girls [sic] and who lived out violent sexual fantasies though the internet.[?]

On a chilly autumn evening last October, shortly after going to a parents’ evening at his daughter’s school which she attended alongside his victim April Jones, he took the trusting youngster into his Land Rover and made the evil fantasy a reality.

He murdered her and disposed of her body. So effective were his efforts at concealing the five-year-old’s remains– either by incinerating them in the woodburner at his whitewashed cottage just a few miles from April’s home, or hiding her in the rugged hills and streams of the surrounding mid Wales countryside, that she was never found, despite the largest search operation ever mounted in British policing history."

Life must mean life

"IMAGES of sadistic child sex abuse [sure?] were found on Mark Bridger’s computer and phone.

He had searched the internet using the terms “naked five-year-olds” and “pictures of naked virgin teens”. But he was not charged with any crimes in relation to this [searching is not illegal].

Yet the images found were enough to convince the court of his motive to kill April [no]. Even the judge called Bridger a paedophile [incorrectly, based on no valid evidence]. But the fact that he was not convicted of any paedophilic crimes [sic] means that if he is ever released he will not go on the sex offenders register [do you really think, that will be of any relevance, to him, or anyone else? do you know what a life license, actually means?]. Why should that matter, you may ask, if he has been given a whole life tariff? Well it is our fear that he won’t actually die in prison as he should [terrible attitude]. That, despite the sentence, Bridger will find a way to get his sentence reduced – as others have.

For one, the judge calling him a paedophile has, according to some legal experts [who, exactly and why?], already given Bridger grounds to appeal.[very doubtful, on that ground, as it is OD/RD] And sadly in our experience a whole life tariff does not always mean what it says. Roy Whiting, who killed Sara’s eight- year-old daughter, was given a whole life tariff." [then you go off on a vested interest and incorrect rant - snip]

"The Facebook post used to incriminate Lester Packingham

"Basically, Facebook was another way for me to tell people about God, and how good he is," Lester Packingham Jr. says.

On April 27, 2010, Lester Gerard Packingham Jr., a 29-year-old Durham resident and registered sex offender who had sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl when he was 21, logged onto his Facebook account with his username, "J.r. Gerrard."

"Man God is Good!" he wrote on his profile page near his photo. In it, he posed as a blinged-out, fedora-topped model in art class spoof from college. "How about I got so much favor they dismissed the ticket before court even started. No fine. No court cost, no nothing spent ... Praise be to GOD, WOW! Thanks, JESUS!"

Packingham knew using Facebook was a felony in North Carolina—the result of a 2008 law barring registered sex offenders from accessing any social networking site. Violators can be sentenced to up to a year in prison.""

Iowa sex offenders unit to remove bathroom cameras

"A treatment center for Iowa sex offenders will remove surveillance cameras from bathrooms and pay $22,000 in legal fees to settle a lawsuit brought by patients.

The settlement confirmed Wednesday comes after the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last month that the cameras violated offenders' right to privacy.

The Civil Commitment Unit for Sex Offenders in Cherokee houses sexually violent predators that are involuntarily locked up for treatment after their prison terms expire.

The cameras were installed after a sexual assault and another incident in which a patient with a disease had sex with another patient unaware of his condition. The appeals court said cameras might deter such behavior, but there are less intrusive ways to do so.

Plaintiffs' attorney Pamela Wingert says the ruling "breaks new ground.""

The amendment would make possession of sexual images of individuals under 18 illegal, with a fine of 1 million yen (about US$10,437) and less than a year in jail if the subject is found to have the images for "the purpose of satisfying sexual curiosity." The bill would also provide for greater measures to prevent child pornography from being transmitted online."

"Annapolis, MD. - An Annapolis woman has filed a lawsuit in federal court against more than 200 people attorneys are calling pedophiles [sic]. Attorneys claim the men included in the lawsuit viewed child pornography featuring the woman's children."

"The family is asking for $8-million in compensatory damages and $24-million in punitive damages from each defendant. Kelly says the goal is to stop the trade of this kind of porn, saying, "Curb the demand for this stuff by making the price of paying to play, paying to be involved, so high, that people will be discouraged from doing it." [oh dear, oh dear]

"The lawsuit claims invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress and other charges. It's based, according to Kelly, upon a federal statute known as "Masha's Law." The statute was enacted in 2009 as a way to break down the growing market for child porn by imposing civil penalties on those who create, trade and view it. [that worked, then - not]"

Chinese offer sex to paedophiles [sic] in new child-abuse campaign

"A prostitute activist who once posed naked with the dissident artist Ai Weiwei is leading a controversial campaign apparently offering sex to paedophiles [sic] to prevent them abusing children.

Within a few hours of its launch Ye Haiyen’s forthright campaign, which shows her holding a cardboard placard with the slogan “Headmaster, get a hotel room, call me and leave the kids alone”, has generated an unexpected deluge of similar offers from men and women across the country."

IIOC - The First Question One Must Ask, Is, 'What is Pornography'? (Part 1)

Tuesday, 28 May 2013

The media and "Child Porn"

"Having spent a bit of time thinking about a relevant article in the media that best describes how not to report the crime of downloading / making indecent images of children, one tabloid immediately came to mind. Not that I am singling this particular paper out, but out of all the UK tabloids, this one uses the term that I am highlighting in this post, namely "child porn" on almost a daily basis.

My journey into the hell that is internet child porn - Amanda Platell

I wish the media would stop using this phrase. In reality, these are images of children who have been sexually exploited or abused - "crime scene photos". Using this phrase trivialises this crime hugely by labelling it as just another type of porn. We already have "food porn", "car porn" "poverty porn" - indeed anything and everything can be labelled as "porn". Should we be trivialising pictures and videos of child abuse by labelling them as just another "porn"?"

Here is the (one of a number) fault in the logic (and legal precedent) of the CPI ...

"Pornography is defined [one definition] as "the explicit portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purposes of sexual arousal and erotic satisfaction", however the only people who would actively look at these images and describe it as such are paedophiles [sic]. Why should the media use such paedo-friendly [sic] language in their reporting - facilitating and helping [sic] paedophiles [sic] somehow justify [sic] their crimes? Answer - they shouldn't and they need to stop!"

Open door: Why the term 'child porn' should not be used



The OSC never uses the term 'child porn[ography]', unless the material, under consideration, clearly is so, beyond reasonable doubt.

For images, we prefer 'Indecent Images of Children' (IIOC) - the primary legal term, in our primary jurisdiction. 

If one wishes to use the term CSAI's, then one must first define the term 'abuse' .

We will return, to this issue, later.

Media AVP (Anti Victim Prejudice) 1, "Indecent Images Of Children - a follow up" 

"Following my first post, (Media Prejudice), now that we all know [sic] that images and films of child abuse and child rape should never be referred to as any sort of "porn" [sic], the question now is what exactly should they be called? [they may be a number of things, porn and not-porn]"

The BBC, the term "Child Porn" and why complaints of this nature are a waste of time

"A brief posting on the BBC's stance on their use of the term "Child Porn". The one organisation I no longer bother to complain to about this - hopefully the below will explain why.

In a nutshell they have no objection to using this phrase in their reporting as long as they also include "indecent images of children" somewhere else in the articles. Not sure why they think this acceptable - by their reasoning one could use the term n****r as well as long as you include the words "black person" - no sense I know, but one that they have used.

Below is a PDF from the BBC Trust complaints section, detailing my complaints and their responses. It is from page 41 to 44, so not that long. It is worth a read, below in blue, to see both my points and their (pretty rubbish to be honest) answers."

Even sex offenders need friends

"Annabel Francis Circles East of England Norfolk & Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire Probation Areas

Most of us have a network of family and friends that we can depend on – they’re the ones we call on in times of need.

We turn to them for advice, but they’re also there to point us in the right direction when we’re heading down the wrong path.

So what happens if you commit a repulsive crime such as child abuse and your friends and family turn their backs on you?

It might not seem to matter so much when you’re serving time behind bars – but what about when you’re released back into the real world?

Statistics show that a sex offender is much more likely to re-offend if he or she feels isolated, lonely and not part of the community.

That’s where Circles of Support and Accountability comes in."

Rise in web child abuse images

"Adult porn drawing users towards illegal images of abuse [really, how?]

"CEOP say between 50,000 and 60,000 [that will be, at least] people in the UK regularly access illegal images of child sex abuse [sic]. [how can they possibly know?]

Mostly as TV journalists we report sudden, headline-grabbing change. Seeping, gradual change is often less dramatic and sometimes even difficult to spot.

But that doesn't make it just as momentous when we do spot it and realise something significant is happening.

The figures obtained by ITV News from the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) are proof [sic] of just such change. They are evidence [better, but still, sic] of the horrifying extent [sic] of child abuse images [sic] now being uploaded and swapped online.


Number of child sex abuse images online 'up by 40%'  [IWF stats drivel]

Talking to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) we have also discovered that thousands [that will be, at very least] of people in this country are regularly looking at this indecent material [how can they possibly know?] . More people than the police can realistically arrest [now, that will be correct]

The link between contact abuse and online abuse is fiercely debated [not amongst those who know, it isn't, neither is it 'fiercely debated', at all]. Some say as many as half of those who access the material online may go on to abuse - others estimate it may be one in 8 [others, almost zero, in % terms]. But few would argue there isn't a link.[ah, but 'links' - even if they exist - are not causality, now are they?]

Stuart Hazel, who murdered Tia Sharpe, is just the latest criminal known to have hurt a child after seeking out abuse images [sic] online.[see above]

So the garbage goes on, and on ...


How to report images of child sex abuse (IWF/CEOP ... blah, blah)

Police overwhelmed by tsunami of child sex abuse images [sic] [John Carr, say no more]

Ex-CEOP chief: Child abuse figures [sic] 'deeply concerning [Jim Gamble, say no more]

Internet 'helping police trace and prosecute perpetrators' [sic] [Peter Davies, say no more]

Public urged to report images of online child sex abuse images [sic] [Susan Hargreaves, say no more]

The internet 'clearly facilitates' [clearly?] child sex abuse {Donald Findlater ... sorry, just Penny's typically-poor journalism]


Now, let's see what the ITN's viewers have to offer ...

Majority think viewing abuse images leads to abusing  [well, no arguing with the quality of of that cohort]

An ITV News Index poll has revealed that the majority of the public agree there is a link between viewing online abuse images and committing child abuse crimes.

The figures show:

>79% of the public agree that there us a link between viewing online abuse images [sic] and crimes committed against children by those viewing images of child abuse [sic]

>71% of those interviewed believe the Government should filter out all pornographic content, unless people specifically opt-in

>41% of people agree it is impossible for national governments to police availability of child abuse images [sic]

>49% think indecent images of children are more common than they were 5 years ago [ooops, a little slip in the Newspeak, there]

>69% think children in the UK are less safe as a result of the spread of indecent images of children [ooops, a little slip in the Newspeak, there] online

Just goes to show what that cohort know.


Next ... something of interest ...

about 1 hour ago 

Sex offender [actor's voice, original victim brainwashed] describes how watching porn led to child abuse [no it does not]

"A sex offender [sic] who viewed images of child abuse [sic] online told ITV News Social Affairs Penny Marshall he started looking at the illegal images after watching legal online porn sites {OK ... and ...].

He said: "Often you are just one click away. I looked at a lot of adult porn and was tempted." [ah, so, it is a matter of natural and normal curiosity, and bad law, then - good, we thought it was some kind of problem]"


This whole 'Special' feels like CEOP-crafted propaganda. 

Tossers (maybe more than figuratively).

Hotline child porn reports surge

"A confidential hotline used to flag criminal content online [sic] has seen a 40% surge in the number of reports [ah] of child pornography.

The hotline, run by charity the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), also recorded a 42% increase in the number of images which feature the sexual abuse of children aged 10 and under and a 32% increase in the number of images showing the rape and sexual torture of children.

The IWF analysed the number of reports [ah] for the six months between October 2012 and March 2013 and compared these figures to the previous year.

IWF chief executive Susie Hargreaves said: "It is so important that members of the public report online child sexual abuse [sic] content to and I'm incredibly grateful that more people are doing so."

FBI Distributes Child Porn as Part of Unusual [sic] Sting to Identify Users in Washington State

"The FBI has disseminated child porn as part of a controversial, unorthodox [hardly, they do it all the time, and have done so, for years] sting in western Washington state.

After seizing a child pornography service last year, Nebraska-based agents decided to continue operating the service to catch users, the Seattle Post Intelligencer reports.

According to the newspaper, the bureau kept the service open for about two weeks in hopes of nabbing more than 5,000 customers who distribute the images of child being raped and abused.

It’s unclear whether the FBI has ever dealt child pornography as part of an investigation [oh, they will have - at the very least, they have downloaded and viewed it].

The investigation is in its infancy and has not yet resulted in an arrest, the Intelligencer reported.

“This remains an ongoing investigation, and local court rules and Department of Justice policy prohibit me from providing more information at this time,” said Sandy Breault, spokeswoman for the FBI Omaha Division. “As in any given matter, if charges are filed, they will eventually become a matter of public record. [good]”"

FBI shared child porn to nab pedophiles [sic]; Washington home raided

"The FBI seized and ran a child pornography service [sic] late last year as investigators worked to identify its customers [sic], one Western Washington man allegedly among them."

"Images endure despite prosecutions

In what has become a disturbing legal cliché, federal prosecutors often assert that each time an image of rape or molestation is shared, the child [sic] is abused again [sic, the 'child' no longer exists].

That was among the arguments offered by Special Assistant [in a 'Special' way] U.S. Attorney Marci Ellsworth last year when she sent a Seattle child molester to federal prison for child pornography crimes unrelated to the Nebraska investigation.

Ellsworth opined [incorrectly] that Pinson’s crimes were not, as the child pornography consumers [sic] sometimes argue, “victimless.” [see the charge sheets]

“Distributing of child pornography – images [indeed] and videos [indeed] of real children [you see, that is where it all falls down] experiencing the worst moments of their young lives [sic] – is not a ‘victimless’ crime [see the charge sheets], and the heinous nature [sic] of this offense should never be diminished by referring to it as ‘just pictures,’ [which is exactly what they are]” Ellsworth told the court. “The children portrayed … suffer real and permanent damage [do they - evidence, please, Marci], for the rest of their lives [ditto], each and every time their exploitation is shared over the Internet [the absolutely, faulty logic and reality, behind this claim, is too ridiculous to even bother counteracting].”

One of those children [sic] – a girl [that will be the adult female 'Vicky', one the FBI's two 'poster girls', who they and others seem to love to exploit] whose father shared images of her being abused that has since become widely shared online – put it more bluntly in a statement to the court filed last year.

“I wish I could feel completely safe, but as long as these images are out there, I never will,” she said in a victim impact statement. [which, merely confirms, that the woman - if she truly believes it - is suffering from severe cognitive distortion, at the very least]

“Every time they are downloaded, I am exploited again [even by the FBI, 'Vicky'?], my privacy is breached [hahahahah, bless], and my life feels less and less safe,” she continued. “I will never be able to have control over who sees me raped as a child [they are not seeing 'you', the images were never 'you' and never will be]. It’s all out there for the world to see and it can never be removed from the internet. [well, not exactly true, but OK - why are your images so different, from millions of other, quite legal, but disturbing - to some, images?]” [as we say, severe cognitive distortion, at the very least, of which those who continue to exploit 'Vicky', and feed her distortions, should be thoroughly ashamed]

Efforts to interview a Seattle attorney representing her were unsuccessful prior to the holiday weekend. Staff at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children was also unavailable to discuss the issues surrounding the investigation [is it nice weather, over there?]."
