Dozens charged in child porn case in NYC area

Posted on 05/21/2014 11:47:47 AM PDT by Morgana

NEW YORK (AP) — A slice of the New York City area mainstream — a police officer, a fire department paramedic, a rabbi, a nurse, a Boy Scout leader — used the Internet to anonymously collect and trade child pornography, federal officials said Wednesday.

The six were among at least 70 men and one woman charged in a five-week operation by the Homeland Security Investigations arm of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Federal officials, who planned to announce the arrests a news conference later Wednesday, call it one of the largest local roundups ever of people who collect images of children having sex — and a stark reminder that they come from all segments of society.

Looks like it wasn’t as anonymous as they thought it was. Give them all a fair trial. If convicted set them in fire until they’re dead.

The obvious Progressive solution?

Stop making it a crime. As long as its all about “love,” after all.....

How does this even happen?

How does one consciously go down this road and not turn back? Do these people not realize that the are walking a clear path to Hell, and I mean hell here in this world and real Hell.

I simply do not understand this, I can’t comprehend it.

Before the questions are asked regarding DHS/ICE involvement in a child porn case, here is the reason. Most child porn cases at some point cross international boundaries, which puts it into ICE jurisdiction. Almost none of these cases are ICE alone. Most are task force cases involving state and other federal agencies, as well.

Some answers. Certainly true pedophilia is a disorder and these people have a compulsion to look at this stuff.

My second answer is that we live in a liberal progressive media driven society and I think idiot immorality is rampant out there. A lot of these people think it’s “no big deal” just like the illegal drugs they are buying and selling, and all the lying they do at work and to gain government benefits, etc.

No one wants to make the link that leftism leads to increased immorality and shoulder shrugs from the mindless thugs we are creating.

Am I exaggerating? Just think about the fact that schools have no religion and the teachers can’t tell the kids to behave morally. What is the result.

This is what the Homosexual movement is all about. These people are currently largely limited to illegal pornography to feed their perversions. They want to be able to access it freely and openly, but more importantly, they want free access to our children and grandchildren and they want to make sure that society accepts it and punishes anyone standing in their way.

This is why we don’t want homosexual males as scoutmasters or in any other supervisory position over children. Homosexual men are predators and see young boys as easy prey. Almost all homosexual males would engage in child rape if given the opportunity.

Yeah, I would not want ICE to control the borders. Oh, wait, isn’t that what they ge paid to do?

I do not care if they are “sick”, can’t help themselves. I would work cheap—save millions of dollars in attorney fees, incarceration, appeals, probation/parole, follow on offenses and prosecution, just nip it in the bud.
50K, I pull the trigger, double tap to the head, quick transport by used pick-up truck to the municipal crematorium, problem solved.

There are too few problem solvers I believe.

Or not.

Honestly, folks, I believe it is a bad idea to make it illegal to possess images. Even horrifying, disgusting images.

Have you ever stopped to think how easy it would be to plant this stuff on a computer and ruin someone's life?

I remember how Janet Reno rose to prominence on some phony satanic day care centers…Wenachee? Remember? It was a witch hunt, a true witch hunt.

But then, I don't want prostitution illegal or a lot of drugs to be illegal.

What is also scary to me is: what is there to stop a skilled hacker from breaking into your computer or smart phone then downloading some kiddie porn on to it? Then, they can concoct some excuse to use a search warrant and “find” the porn there. They arrest your butt, run the news all over the media, and the lie is around the world before the truth has a chance to get its boots on.

Where do you go to get your reputation back?

I absolutely agree that this is a morality problem, and
I believe that as our society becomes more amoral, we are seeing more of this and things like this.

It seems like many are simply losing the ability to distinguish between right and wrong.

Speaking out of experience from my own life, it is apparent that the brain produces good thoughts and bad thoughts, but it is up to me to determine which are good and bad, and to act on the good ones and completely disregard the bad ones.

And I think what makes that judgment in me is my soul. I am not my brain, and I am not my heart. Those are organs that I have, but they are not who I am.

But I am my soul, and that is what has to win out.

I don’t mean to ramble on that, it’s kind of heard to speak of in a clear manner I guess, but I think some people in this world may be missing that, or may be unable to distinguish what it is that drives them or should drive them.

I feel like they are lost, and it’s very sad, and it leads to Hell on earth for some people, most especially the children involved in this.

Because they’ve only arrested some of the people who had possession of the pics, not the people in the pics themselves. As of yet.

ICE is part of DHS, like the FBI is part of DOJ. ICE is a combination of parts of two legacy agencies, INS and US Customs Investigations. Their biggest obstacles are the politicians that don’t allow them to enforce the law. That has happened under both this administration and the last.

A terabyte is 1000 gigabytes.

“Laptop drives can range from 160 GB up to 2 TB in size. Most systems will have between 500 GB and 1 TB of storage.”

Ping to post #15

I just want to give you guys an idea of what I deal with as the keeper of this 12 years running ping list.

This unit, Responsibility2nd, frequently pings me to various threads filled with libertarian hatred all the time (at least 5 today - quite obsessive). His pings are usually tagged with what he thinks is a witty - but usually pretty lame - anti-libertarian remark.

Well today, it actually pinged me to a Child Porn thread...

CHILD PORN!

His posting history of hatred against libertarian leaning folks on FR is quite apparent if you dig back. But by pinging the Libertarian list owner to a CHILD PORN thread, he has more or less just tacitly accused over 400 freepers of endorsing CHILD PORN.

CHILD PORN!

Now I've been on FR for almost a decade, and I've really never seen anything this far beyond the pale. All of you mothers, sisters, brothers, Marines, Grunts, financial wizards, and genreally great freepers who have been on my list for years - this is what this creature thinks you're about...otherwise it wouldn't be trying to use my list to reach you.

Is this really what this forum has become?

PS: I really never ping trolls, and never will again. But I just wanted you guys to know, this is what is out there nowadays. And apparently it's allowed to operate freely...

I struck a nerve did I? Over target - receiving flak and all that, huh?

Look; I could link child porn to the libertarian mindset if I wanted to, but that’s not the issue I’ll make at this time.

What is the issue, what is obvious to all here at FR - and becoming clearer by the day - is that modern libertarianism is anathema to all things conservative. Its immoral.

I’d no sooner support a libertarian than a RINO. And the sooner you social libs understand this is the overriding ideal here at FR and get on board with conservative values, the better off you’ll be.

BRAINSTORM SUGGESTION! It looks very much like Responsibility 2nd is stalking you. Now, a certain similar creep who libels anyone self-defining as small-l libertarian as “child porn loving” etcetera depraved monster, who shall remain unnamed, has managed to get some of my posts deleted on the grounds of “stalking.” So apparently it works. Clearly R2nd is stalking you if he’s pinging you to child porn threads (yeeeeeeeigh ... what a creep) ... Anyway, just a thought. I really hope these rabid nutcases who libel God-fearing FReepers this way start to get a few warning zots.

As you complain about your posts getting deleted, and as in a previous thread today you made a physical threat of violence against me, and as you now violate FR policies by insulting me (bastard, monster, creep, etc.) I should encourage you to knock it off.

But hey... if this makes you feel better about yourself - go for it. You have my permission.

No nerve struck. I am simply doing my members a service. You are now outed to over 400 FReepers. I know your type very well.

So insecure in your own beliefs, rather than profess the strength of your own convictions - you attack others for theirs, instead of searching for the brotherhood of common ground.

You profess yourself to be a moral soul, yet you use slander and hatred to alter your own appearance to others.

Proverbs 10:18:
He who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool.


So, feel free to continue to expose yourself. Only God knows who is truly moral among us. And if by verse, he judges you a fool.
