One Weeks Worth of Child Porn Arrests:


In just one week, three high profile men were arrested on child porn charges. The first was a prominent Boston physician, the second is a senior executive at Shell Oil Company, and the third is an Australian ABC TV-host. The point that I want to make, is not to lambast these three particular men, I will not even mention their names, but to show how widespread child porn has seeped through every rank of society. There use to be this image of the child abuser as a degenerate dirty-old-man in a raincoat trying to give candy to little girls. Not true anymore. These men where all educated, well-off financially, and part of their perspective elite. They all downloaded the pornographic images in the safety of thier home from the Internet. But they are just as guilty as the man who abducts a child off the street. Here are some frightening statistics: there are 116,000 daily Internet searches for child porn; there are 100,000 web-sites offering child porn; 58% of these sites are housed in the US.
