BOSTON (AP) The men came from different walks of life on two continents: a children's puppeteer in Florida, a hotel manager in Massachusetts, an emergency medical technician in Kansas, a day care worker in the Netherlands. In all, 43 men have been arrested over the past two years in a horrific, far-flung child porn network that unraveled like a sweater with a single loose thread.
Investigators made one arrest after another of men accused of sexually abusing children, exchanging explicit photos of the attacks and even chatting online about abducting, cooking and eating youngsters.
"This isn't just a child that's nude and someone's taking pictures of him; this is a child that's being raped by an adult..."
The oldest victim in the Netherlands was 4, the youngest just 19 days old.
Massachusetts U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz, whose office prosecuted Diduca, said the demand for photos of sexual assaults of young children, including babies and toddlers, has increased sharply in recent years.
"This demand leads to the abuse of children, yet there is this misconception that somehow, viewing child pornography is a victimless crime," said. "It clearly is not."
The mother of one of the boys said she initially did not believe the allegations against Arnett, a family friend for about 15 years. She said her son, now 7, and several nephews often spent weekends at Arnett's home four or five years ago.
For the agents working on the case, the leads never seem to end.

There were 43 men arrested in this episode, all of them abusing children age 4 and younger. Trusted in their communities: but of course. It's the "trustedness" that gets them access to the children.
How do you react to stuff like this? How do you even grasp it?
Some say Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is part of this child porn ring.
Be glad you don’t grasp it. You don’t, because it’s evil. We know evil exists, but it’s not something to grasp unless we have a death wish (and I don’t mean physical death...).
Dear God in Heaven......
I guess "child-porn" is better than saying "Homosexual child rapists"... If only they were allowed to marry, this would never happen... /sarc
And yet these people are now free to adopt children. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they get preferential treatment in adoptions. I guess sometimes we aren’t supposed to “think of the children.”
Wonder if Jerry Sandusky had a hand in organizing any of this?
Those subhuman filth need killing.
How do you react to stuff like this? Two bullets in the back of the head seems like a good start.
I have yet to hear Harry deny these allegations. Makes me wonder if perhaps they are indeed true.
OH THIS COULD GET MUCH WORSE!!!!!
I pray not only for the victims of these monsters, but also for the souls of those who must be exposed to this evil in order to stop it.
We have monsters like this in our midst and the gays expend energy protesting Chick-fil-A. May God have mercy on us.
Even the most primitive tribe in the Amazon will kill or expel people like these. Our society is so degraded that pedophiles like these have their supporters. I know it’s true but can’t really get my head around it. They violate the most basic rules of human society.
Now, someone needs to provide some substance to that claim.
Obviously Harry Reid (D-NV) has some explaining to do here.
