CHILD PORNOGRAPHY RING

From Kathimerini A child pornography ring involving around 20 businessmen and professionals from across the country has been traced following a tip-off in a provincial town in northern Greece, police sources in Attica said yesterday. According to officers, the ring is responsible for uploading photographs and video footage of “extremely hardcore” child pornography, much of which is believed to have been produced in this country. The extreme nature of the material and the size of the ring make it an unprecedented case, sources said. Details are expected to be made public this week. Also read this post at Cyprus Action Network on a legal loophole that allows child pornographers to upload illegal material onto the internet in Cyprus

I do hope there's no connection:

The bodies of two young children, which have been recovered from the waist down at the coasts of Chalkidiki and Volos in the last three days, have alarmed local law enforcement agencies, which continue their investigation to solve these horrifying cases. Last Sunday, a fisherman found half the body of a young child, aged 3 or so, in advanced decomposition at a beach in Olympiada, Chalkidiki, and notified the Coast Guard. The coroner who performed the autopsy said the cause of death is still undetermined because of the corpse’s advanced decomposition. The boy was wearing two pairs of pants, black trainers and purple socks. What is more, the body of another boy, aged 3-8, was recovered from the waist down in Plaka, Volos, but the cause of death and the boy’s identity still remain unknown.

Port Authorities in Stratoni, Chalkidiki, and Volos are primarily looking into the possibility the two boys were illegal immigrants that drowned in their effort to arrive in Greece by boat.

However, the police said the boys could have been victims of an illegal network that sold body parts. Investigations continue towards any direction.

They said they are going to make public the information this week.

This kind of thing sickens me to the very core.

Unfortunately, the internet has only seemed to accelerate the availability of child pornography. I am more than happy to know that these heinous people are being arrested but at the same time I just know that for every one caught, there are probably thousands more who haven't been caught and others who are just starting out in the porn-for-sale industry. Morally, I'm against the death penalty but realistically when I hear of cases like this, I'd flip the switch myself on them.

Having a child always makes you question the death penalty in these cases. If someone did something to my kid, I don't know how my moral stance would change.

And it only gets worse. I just read this article from the Ottawa Sun. These sub-human paedophiles are now aggressively spamming their debauched "product" through our email accounts.

I have had to put an "exclusive" filter on my email account and I never open anything that I don't know the source of. It's disgusting what these people are doing.
SeaWitch, I don't know if you let your son have access to the internet but I am looking in to child safe browsers for mine. I haven't found a single free one. I use a mac which is great for virus protection and security but not so cool when looking for free applications. If anyone knows of a free child safe browser (for mac) I would be grateful for the info.

I am also against the death penalty. Out of respect for the humanitarian focus of this blog, I choose to refrain from mentioning here what I would like to have down, and how.
