Child Pornography Exposed

First off my hat is off to those in law enforcement who actually investigate through surveillance whether or not a child is being actually harmed. Those in law enforcement that are looking for easier softer way sit behind a computer screen and let automated software look for a IP addresses of P2P sharers. With those IP address in hand they procure a search warrants thereby destroy a persons’ life that is indiscriminate of arrest or conviction and that persons life has been altered for life. Someone who actually harms a child is much different than looking at pictures of the harm done by someone else. People are being prosecuted and thrown in jail for looking at crime scene photos which are thought crimes without substance and nothing more. In the future students will read their history books with the names of prosecutors and judges who went on a witch hunt believing the voo-doo science presented to them as being one of the most perverted periods in American history where each and everyone of them has their legacy written about in negative context. Students will study how a group of individuals infiltrated the justice system with a publish or perish mentality and the justice system including legislators state and federal fell for it hook line and sinker causing needless incarceration and in many instances death. 

My intent was to write a book on CP alone but at times I was sucked in to the insanity of NCMEC research. People are led to believe when NCMEC researchers speak or write a report or study they received their statistical numbers from the USA being NCMEC is housed in the USA. What they do not tell you is they are using worldwide statistics because by doing so they through manipulation of the mind have people afraid to even look at a child. The government has been brainwashing children in school, adults through the the media, and at basically every opportunity. (52) A good portion of child abuse statistics came from a time before the INTERNET became blazaa. Real researchers say the courts have it wrong(53).

Legislative discretion is the power or right to make official decisions using reason and judgment to choose from among acceptable alternatives. Legislatures and administrative agencies are charged with making these discretionary decisions in the discharge of their public duties. Those discretionary decisions made are subject to some kind of review subject to reversal or modification if there has been an ABUSE OF that DISCRETION. Those discretionary decisions should be based on sound empirical evidence; However the science being presented to them is based on faulty arbitary pseudo science that is unacceptable illogically, unsound, comprecious and clearly not supported by the facts at hand. Only via the Constitution can judicial enforcement limit discretionary decision making by legislative bodies to pass laws but even they are reading the voo doo science being presented to them. These inconsistencies have resulted in laws being passed based on false and misleading information that have overestimated the problem. Like the fear of “stranger danger”. It is misplaced and should not be used to justify the proliferation of registered sex offender laws. The empirical research that examined Megan’s Law has indicated that community notification is NOT effective in preventing sexually based crimes. (1) The problem as I see it is we have legislators both state and federal passing laws based on the voo-doo science of CP that are taking away a persons’ liberty and freedom. That in of itself is very serious and those whose ambitious are tied to this voo-doo science should be held accountable in this publish or perish climate where studies are churned out in obscene quantities.

Understanding some of the terminology will help understand exactly what is going on here. When a scientific researcher does scientific research they generally measures something, and often compare that measurement to something else. It is usually not possible or practical to perform the measurement on whole populations like men between the age of 20 to 30. Measurements are made samples so they can take that sample and use it for the whole population. The measurements are then analyzed, and conclusions are drawn and if the sampling was done appropriately we can assume that what is true for the sample is true for the whole population. However assumptions are just that assumptions; for example I believe my mother went to heaven when she died. I have no proof of that alleged fact or assumption. Assumptions are made by researchers when they take it upon themselves to take possession of something. If their research is responsible for a social problem that can in effect take away somebody’s freedom that research should be beyond reproach where it can not be broken down by reasoning. Statistical mistakes are widespread in the child abuse industry and those that do peer review and who evaluate papers before journals commit to publishing them are much worse at spotting those mistakes. Professional pressure, competition and ambition push scientists to publish more quickly than logically acceptable. Child abuse researchers are publishing copious papers which exacerbates all these problems. As Brian Nosek, a psychologist at the University of Virginia stated, “There is no cost to getting things wrong,” and in his discipline there are persistent errors. In the child abuse industry the only cost to researchers is the cost of not getting published. Todays scientists are doing too much trusting and not enough verifying and it is being a detriment to science, and humanity. Dr. Loannidis from Stanford University reports the customary approach to significance statistical analysis ignores three things.
 1) the statistical power,
 2) the unlikeliness of the hypothesis being tested, and
 3)the studies ability to avoid false negatives in which a real sign is missed in the noise.

Do you remember being told by a grown up that if something sounds to good to be true it probably is? Well that same concept, “if it is to good to be true” is tied to the unlikeliness of the hypothesis they test. Surprisingly the results may be awash in a pervasive bias favoring the publication claiming to have found something new. In a nutshell consider 1,000 hypotheses being tested of which just 100 are true where law enforcement including judges depend on your studies to do their job. The following video is some of what CP law is based on but has nothing to do with CP. In fact those children (arrested) rescued because a child is always the victim will in fact will bolt from who ever has them the first chance they get. Here is the hypocrisy of it all. Roughly 13,000 juveniles are tried in adult courts every year, were the child is not considered a victim.(55) In 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court in Roper v. Simmons declared death by execution is unconstitutional for juveniles but before the ruling, 365 children were legally executed in the United States. (231)

Statisticians have ways to deal with such problems but most scientists are not statisticians. Many in the legal and legislative trade do not grasp statistics. They have not kept pace with the development of complex mathematical techniques for crunching data. There are some scientists that use inappropriate techniques because those are the ones they feel comfortable with. Others latch on to red-hot ones without understanding their subtleties relying on the methods built into their software, even if they don’t understand them. When an experiment is not, “blinded” the chances are those experimenters will see what they want to see rise. Thats why people analyzing clinical trial data should be, “ blinded” to where the data comes from in a study group, or the control group. When research is looked at with proper, “blinding”, that previous ubiquity disappeared. (47) The major problem with child abuse statistics is the researchers bias toward publishing positive results while sticking negative, unfavorable results to their cause in the trash. I was taught we homo-sapients have to learn to use rational critical thinking a skill that is learned not something we are born with; like riding a bike. Unfortunately more so than not legislators, law enforcement, other that NCMEC law enforcement, judges and people in general turn to the pseudo scientific studies of assumptions made by NCMEC researchers. This research is making a ASS out of U and ME because they assume. Peoples freedom is at stake and NCMEC legal arm is influencing the laws legislators make in which ones political passions can also undermine that very basic reasoning skills. A pioneer in exposing this vast problem is the Stanford statistician John Ioannidis, whose blockbuster 2005 paper in PLOS Medicine presented evidence that “most current published research findings are false.”. He states “False positives and exaggerated results in peer reviewed scientific studies have reached epidemic proportions in recent years. The problem is rampant in economics, the social sciences and even the natural sciences, but it is particularly egregious in biomedicine.”(54) 

Law enforcement has mobilized against CP possession, with very little real scientific data tracking the extent of CP possession cases, or in describing CP characteristics in the criminal justice system. Legal definitions of both what a child is, and what pornography is, differ considerably among jurisdictions in the USA and the world as a whole. Therefore the purpose of research of those who poses CP is often DEFINED BROADLY as any record of sexual activity involving a prepubescent person. Pornographic records include still photographs, videos, and audio recordings. Law enforcement profiles a CP possessor as, “not necessarily involved in hands-on sexual abuse of children and may come from all walks of life and show few warning signs are more than likely to be in a relationship, to be employed, to have an above average IQ, to be college educated, and to not have a criminal record.”. Now that is a lot of people. The following are scholarly articles by the same author who made that determination and definition of CP possessors by literature review which is what all the child abuse industry authors do. Keep in mind the publish or perish attitudes of these authors. What they do is they review each others writing until you have the current cacophony of material which hold no real knowledge and billions of tax dollars waisted. Many child abuse researchers such as Wortley and Smallbone base their claim on research conducted on Aboriginal tribes in Australian prisons and other child abuse researchers basing their results on them; get it? Professor Stephen Smallbone is an Aboriginal who has his doctorate in Philosophy is Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Director of Griffith Youth Forensic Service, and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. His educational accomplishment I was not able to determine. What I did find was he received his Phd from Griffith. His research is concerned with understanding and preventing sexual violence and abuse. His recent publications include the books Situational Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse (Wortley & Smallbone, 2006) and Preventing Child Sexual Abuse: Evidence, Policy and Practice (Smallbone, Marshall, & Wortley, 2008). Richard Wortley has PhD in psychology. He received his bachelors from Newcastle University a public research university, his Masters from The University of New South Wales a research intensive university and his PhD from Macquarie University an Australian public teaching and research university. He worked as a prison psychologist for ten years before moving to academia. He has been a chief investigator on 8 national competitive grants in Australia with total finding of around 2 million. As always follow the money! The research they conducted was once again statistics gathered via three self report questionnaires or scales. What we have now is a whole concofney of professions directing that education in that direction of law enforcement and control. 

There is one report on the findings of the National Juvenile Online Victimization, (N-JOV) Study which addressed judicial need by ESTIMATING a quantity of imaginary figures. Then researchers imagined that CP will reach their figure for the number of arrests for CP possession and they describe the characteristics of CP possessors. The researchers estimated their answers before measuring the quantity, or the nature of the images they possessed, and how and in what types of agencies their cases came to the attention of law enforcement. That estimation also discusses how many arrested offenders who had CP distributed, and how many committed other types of sex crimes against minors. There is not much written research about the motivations of CP possessors, but what there is suggests CP possessors are a diverse group using CP for a variety of reasons.(2) CP possessors include people who are;
1) Sexually interested in prepubescent children (pedophiles) or young adolescents (Hebephiles), who use CP images for sexual fantasy and gratification. 
2) Sexually “in-discriminant,” meaning they are constantly looking for new and different sexual stimuli 
3) Sexually curious, downloading a few images to satisfy that curiosity. 
4) Interested in profiting financially by selling images or setting up web sites requiring payment for access.

 Compare that description to the one in the previous paragraph and you will notice a very important caveat here. There is no actual empirical evidence, empirical data, or empirical knowledge, that was acquired by means of observation or experimentation to support any of their assumptions in the following. Those arrested are predominantly 91% white and 86% older than 25 and 3% younger than 18. Most are unmarried at the time of their alleged crime. 41% had never married 21% were separated, divorced, or widowed. 38% were either married or living with partners. 83% had images of children between the ages of 6 and 12 years of age. 39% had images of 3 to 5 year old children. 19% had images of toddlers or infants younger than 3 year old. 92% had images of minors focusing on genitals or showing explicit sexual activity. 80% had pictures showing the sexual penetration of a child, including oral sex and 39% had moving images in digital or other video formats. 71% possessed images showing sexual contact between an adult and a minor, defined as an adult touching the genitals or breasts of a minor or vice-versa. 21% had CP depicting violence such as bondage, rape, or torture. Most of these involved images of children who were gagged, bound, blindfolded, or otherwise enduring sadistic sex. Most arrested CP possessors 79% also had what might be termed “soft-core” images of nude or semi-nude minors, but only 1% possessed such images alone. Approximately one in ten has an officially known history of contact sexual offending and can be assessed using one of the established actuarial risk scales. Take notice the majority of the research done starts off saying there has been limited research done. (2) 

Of the prosecutors who deal with CP cases 25% had went in front of a jury in the previous 2 yr.. Close to 50% would like clearer guidelines about the types of CP cases are accepted for federal prosecution. Prosecutors reported difficulties with computer forensics and the police investigation, but not so much with defense strategies. CP prosecution has raised many issues about the consistency in standards, problems with the statutory framework, and the suitability of the punishments being sought. Prosecution dilemmas and challenges for child pornography crimes examines their
 1) charging decisions and difficulties encountered;
 2) the resolution of child pornography cases; and 
3) prosecutor experience with other aspects of cases, such as risk assessment, judges’ rulings, and referring for federal prosecution. The appendix provides results on additional questions. The data come from N‐JOV study.(3) 

Prosecutors use a mix of strategies to handle charging defendants who possess large amounts of CP. They charging decisions are done on a case by case basis and that the number of images used in charging is picked based on the prosecutor’s discretion. Another issue for prosecutors is whether just one image is enough to prosecute while another key issue prosecutors encounter, are the types of defenses that are formally raised. Prosecutors must prove the defendant knowingly possessed CP images. In order to explore what types of defenses prosecutors encounter prosecutors were asked about what types of formally raised defenses they had experienced in the previous two years. 31% reported that these defenses created real difficulty resulting in a significantly reduced plea, the dismissal of charges, or losing the case entirely. 62% encountered difficulties with computer forensics or the police investigation. 16% reported that charges against the defendant were ultimately dismissed because of problems with the police investigation or forensic exam with 79% reporting that this occurred in only one case. 56% handled a case where the defense formally raised technology related issues that required the prosecutor to explain technical details to a judge or jury and when that happened. 75% reported being mostly or very satisfied with resources their office had to explain technical evidence or rebutting technical defenses. 72% of arrested defendants were charged with state crimes out of the 63% of cases with state charges 84% of cases in which outcomes were known ended with guilty pleas and 5% with convictions after trial. Charges were dropped or dismissed in 7% of the cases and suspect died in 4%, or respondents did not know the outcome. 33% went to trial 26% had a CP case in front of a jury. 55% had defense object to images being shown to jury in which 30 % were successful. The government must prove that an image of child pornography depicts actual children. 43% of the children were already know or jury and judge decide for themselves if the images were actual CP. 32% of testamoney came from a physician. 25% of prosecutors that had a case in the previous 2 years of which 22% allowed a misdemeanor rather than a felony. 21% were not required for sex offender roles if a defendant pleaded guilty. 50% of prosecutors said it had to do with the specific nature of the case, such as a possession only. Problematic search warrant or other circumstances in which prosecutors reduced case outcomes included a young offender or an offender who had no priors and few images. Very few prosecutors mentioned that reduced case outcomes were related to difficulties proving the age of the victims in the images.

20% of prosecutors were not satisfied with risk assessments, 34% somewhat satisfied, and 16% very satisfied. 84% were satisfied with drug or alcohol evaluation, 52% with polygraph evidence, 54% with some other psychological evaluation. 66% said the system was flawed and risk assessments should not be trusted. 19% reported that judges made rulings on CP cases that had affected how or whether their office pursues these cases. 74% report the rulings had a negative impact on the pursuit of CP cases. The most common rulings placed limits about what could or could not be charged with, such as transferring images to another medium does not constitute creation/distribution limiting the ability to file multiple counts. 7% said they had a cases that caused them particular concern because judges did not adhere to the sentencing guidelines sentenced the defendant to probation. In federal court because of the strict sentences many courts make individualized assessments to arrive at sentences that diverge from the calculated guidelines range. In addition to The strict sentencing guidelines and the individualized assessments of those guidelines the social status of many arrested for CP can complicate these cases. 53% of defendants had Full time employment, and 25% were married. 47% had some technical and or college. 48% of prosecutors referred cases for federal prosecution. 15% said federal prosecutors took cases they wanted. 13% of all federal cases were declined, 37% of state prosecutors were not clear about the acceptance procedure. 21% were somewhat clear. 23% were reasonably clear and only 19% said they were very clear; 52% of all prosecutors like to see guidelines. Also this complex process varied by prosecutor and by jurisdiction. Some prosecutors report they would charge one charge per image, while others reported that they do not charge per image. Many prosecutors noted that there is often no point going beyond a certain level; However defining what that level is appears to vary and is often based on the prosecutor’s discretion. The fact that many prosecutors see the need for additional legislation around charging indicates that this is an area in need of more discussion.(4) 

Law enforcement sting operations and mass raids seen in and on the news everyday of the week every year against CP for the past 3 decades actually have a significance that does not readily meet the eye. The deep purpose of both kinds of operation is not the investigation of lesser crimes such as the private possession of pornography but the underlying purpose seem to invade the privacy of the mind. Not to find out what offenses someone has committed but what kind of person s/he is. Possession of CP is being used to generate evidence of pedophile identity, of pedophile ethnicity, one might almost say, that often entirely harmless people can be registered and henceforth viewed with lifelong suspicion, surveillance and coercion.(5) 

I was told growing up this is a free and fair nation naive as that may be. According to Brady 1963(6) a prosecutor is requires to disclose any evidence they discover that is favorable to the defendant; However according to the literature all too often, prosecutors fail to comply, citing their duty to zealously prosecute the alleged crime. Prosecutors are advocates and I for one personally choose to think they are fair minded individuals. I also believe in heaven and hell they are closely held personal beliefs that do not necessary ring true in a tuned ear. The reality is we live in a complicated society and society has come up with the perfect crime to enthrall and hold many in everlasting ignorance. People are full of fear. Inquiring of CP’s nature alone one is so full of fear its not done by family, or friends, and legal research is left up to the individual, alone. According to, Lawrence G. Walters, Esq. Family Values groups and other opponents of free speech routinely use the terms “pornography, obscenity and child pornography,” together. This is an attempt to cause confusion in the mind of the public who intentionally link perfectly legal content with evidence of a horrific crime and the media through ignorance or complicity often complicated matters by playing along.

A report prosecutors like to reference is, “ THE EFFECTS ON JUVENILES OF BEING USED FOR PROSTITUTION AND PORNOGRAPHY” by Himi Halper Silbert 1989 for NCMEC. The report was based on SELF REPORTS from young men and women, who have been involved in juvenile prostitution and/or pornography. Results from 2 sources a 2.5yr. exploratory study of “The Sexual Assault of Prostitutes”; conducted for the National Center for the Prevention and Control of Rape, National Institute of Mental Health, and sponsored through the Delancey Street Foundation. The 1982 report states clinical experiences with well over 1000 prostitutes of which 100 individuals were also used to make pornography as juveniles. In perspective out of the 100 adults who were allegedly used for pornography as children came the “RE victimization model”and this is important. Out of the 100 Two-thirds or 66% of the victims were sexually assaulted by father figures with 33% abused by their natural father, 30% by a step or foster father and 4% by a mother’s common law husband. That comes to 104% meaning children that are sexually molested by strangers is relatively insignificant. Several victims (How many is several? imagine a scientific paper stating several) report that the abuser showed them pictures depicting children involved in sexual acts with adults to convince them it was OK. I have searched the journals but was unable to find a scientific number for several. A report to the sentencing commission stated 38% of 200 woman prostitutes or 76 woman were interviewed reported that sexually explicit photographs had been taken of them when they were children for commercial purposes, and/or the personal gratification of the photographer. Years Later according to the article the act had long term impact more debilitating than the immediate effects but were not told what the dilating factors are or what incentives were issued to extract the answers. According to Silbert the initial negative responses of shame, fear, or anxiety develop into extremely negative self-concepts suggest here that when excessive victimization is coupled with the lack of understanding of the causes of the abuse, as well as a sense of impotence to do anything to change the situation, then a sense of psychological paralysis develops, and here is the caveat; However that can be a result from many things in life.

Silbert then sums it up by stating,”While not all (well how many then?) appear to be seriously traumatized at the time that they are involved, the long term effects seem(either they are or they are not; this is a science paper?) to be extremely damaging for so many,(how many Ms. Science?) particularly when compounded by other abuses and/or secondary problems.”(what were the abuses and the secondary problems? They are conveniently missing.). (7) Also what about the two primary exceptions; victims whose images were taken with hidden cameras and or recorded remotely (via web-cam) and victims whose images were used to create morphed child pornography images. One can only wonder if they are included in the statistics. Data, can not speak in and of its self to the issue of exactly how law enforcement should prioritize CP investigations if they want to catch molesters that are really molesting children. 

The new techniques and priorities that police are using are not increasing discovery of dual offenders.(42). Instead of destroying someone life and taking away their liberty those priorities are inappropriate to catch actual child abusers. The harm inflicted on the casual CP viewer non offender which is easily determined via surveillance is catastrophic. The social impact has been devastating because of these imaginary assertions that those who view or download such illicit images are also guilty of undiscovered abuse, in the past, or will commit a heinous contact offenses in the future. CP possession has its own corrosive dynamics but locking someone up and taking away their freedom when there is no victim other than the victims the lawyers fabricate creating a client. 

What happens when someone is arrested for CP possession? Number one they feel as if their lives are over, being ruined right before their eyes. There is no going back to a normal life, no way out, no hope for understanding or empathy from anyone; that includes family. Someone arrested for CP tries to distance themselves from the ones they love in fear one of them may be pulled or sucked into the web. People immediately lose their job as all human relationships crumble. They are almost invariably convicted and sent to prison and often placed in imposed solitary confinement, which may be physically safe but can be psychologically damaging. In prison, even CP offenders are on the lowest totem pole abused by inmates and staff alike; sometimes even killed. If they live through the experience they are placed on a sex offender registry and remain there for the rest of their lives making it nearly impossible to find work or find place to live; finally they commit suicide. Did anybody give it thought these individuals may be victims themselves? 

Another researcher on re-victimization examined 90 empirical studies. Their conclusion total dispels ICE investigators and prosecutors statements that,“Individuals who trade child pornography further the re-victimization of innocent children who’ve been subjected to sexual exploitation,”. The, “Study after study” law enforcement says links child sexual abuse to psychological trauma, addiction and violent relationships in adulthood does not exist. There is almost NO RESEARCH that deals with that specifically. A study that looked at actual empirical deviance concluded More longitudinal studies on sexual re-victimization are needed. (49)

 Go to Google and type in the search bar, “child pornography re-victimization studies”, and there you will find NONE but what NCMEC has adopted! The studies talk about everything but CP. NCMEC has a good portion of the WORLD under their thumb believing in things that just are not so. ICE all but admits to their P2P actions in USA v. Xavier Degollado 2013 pg. 2 (50) Degollado admitted to utilizing a P2P network to download child pornography. Degollado explained that he was aware that his child pornography files, which he stored in a “shared folder,” were accessible by others on the P2P network. According to the supervising ICE agent, during the course of the investigation, Degollado had shared approximately 72 images and 16 videos, with P2P USER ACCOUNTS OPERATING UNDER ICE CONTROL. A forensic examination revealed that the computer contained approximately 500 images and 66 videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including several children identified by the NCMEC. A P2P network consists of a group of PCs that can EXCHANGE files with one another without going through a centralized server, saving time and bandwidth space. Those pieces are assembled into a complete file on the PC requesting the file. There can be 100’s sharing or as few as 1 other. Once you begin file download and unless you took file sharing precautions you yourself begin to forward pieces of the file you Orrginally requested. In comes Oak Ridge a U.S. Department of Energy institute who developed BitPredator which uses BitTorrent to verifys IPs using ACTIVE monitoring methods. The active approach relies on the capability of the software to inject test packets into the network or send packets to servers and applications, following them and measuring service obtained from the network. Peer behavior is evaluated and modeled using bitfield message responses. Even the music and movie industry’s ability to monitor BitTorrent is limited to parts of the protocol. They currently track parts of the protocol but it is important to be able to validate results since incorrect addresses can lead to wasted resources or convicting a person of a crime they did not commit. The active approach provides explicit control generating packets for measurement scenarios. This includes control on the nature of traffic generation, the sampling techniques, the timing, frequency, scheduling, packet sizes and types. It is the give and take of P2P. 

In 2002, following a successful lobbying effort to modernize North Carolina’s incest law, the National Association to Protect Children was established. This national association to protect children, formed an alliance with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to develop software that would assist in saving children from child predators. They did this by automating the detective work needed to gather evidence and locate children in danger. According to the Internet Commerce Security Laboratory 89% of all Bit Torrent transfers are illegal content. This illegal content is not all CP but instead mostly copyright infringing material which smacks the nail on the head; it is not about the children. Corporation in partnership with the government form the cooperate legal arm of law enforcement Through NCMEC. They can now go after copyright infringes using the premise of child protection and or scare enough people. Their Constitution rights are taken away by obscenity law where they do not stand a chance. With the threat of incarceration the practice would stop.

The National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCMEC) says the abusers are the family members themselves who abuse and or neglect their child. Since other researchers assume I will assume and state a fact that people who posses CP have little or nothing to do with children. The children they are around receive the utmost respect weather it be Famial or friend. This is what the statistics seem to say and that is what seems to be the FACT. All States in the USA include sexual abuse as a form of child abuse. Although the definition of sexual abuse varies(51). There are 75million children under 18 in the USA now keeping in mind NCMEC is worldwide their figures come from EU, UK, Au, and USA as well as other places they have control. When you start to clear you mind of the propaganda being thrown at you it will dawn on you that you are being had.  

NCANDS 2005 report of 899,000 reported cases from social service agencies abused children says 9.3% or 53,940 children are sexually abused 79.4% or 714,521 children abusers were their parents, 6.8% or 611,320 children were abused by other relatives and the remaining category of 3.8% or 341,620 abusers were the unmarried partner of a child’s parent. That amounts to 99.3% or 892,707 of 899,000 child abuse cases start at home and has nothing to do with strangers. Out of the 899,000 cases only 89 or .07% had anything to do with strangers. Think about it for a minuet! Do those figures call for such a massive attack by law enforcement on the alleged premise of CP; I for one hardly think so. The massive amounts of your TAX DOLLARS are going to spy on YOU! With the corporate government partnership of NCMEC pushing it’s WITCH HUNT along espousing,”save the children” This is corporate front which has spooned the perfect crime emass.

Eli Newberger M.D. Says after a century’s experience in the American child welfare movement we have a service system that, despite all it’s humane rhetoric, studies, collaboration is still unable to promote the safety and well being of many children. In large part due to a scarcity of essential family supports as counseling, medical care, homemaker skills, child-care, and nursing services. Instead they have a heavy reliance on foster-home care with a tightfisted social policy toward families and children. $2.5 Billion tax payer dollars go for child welfare each year since 1972 in the face of inflation and the fact we borrow every cent that is being spent on those expanding demands for service. Simply stated when a professional person files a child-abuse case report, the services that follow may be incapable of dealing with the needs of family and child.(56). There are contradictions between philosophy and practice due to our incomplete professional knowledge, we find ourselves wondering whether the following are unanswerable questions when cases of child abuse are identified: Is the child at risk if CP is found? Can the family be helped if help is indeed needed? Are competent intervention resources available other than county jail? Will law enforcement do more harm than good by arresting someone for CP?

Since laws are being passed on the basis of surveys and polls I thought I would brush up on basic math and statical analysis as well. So here goes all giggles and shits aside lets see exactly what the LAW and NCMEC technical assistance to prosecutors and law enforcement has yielded. NCMEC represent children, law enforcement, and legislators at the state and federal levels who rely on NCMEC science. NCMEC get their science from surveys which they feel according from their reports to be essential to logical thinking challenges. With that in mind one must also be aware of what a Logical fallacy is. A logical fallacy’s are flaws in our reasoning, tricks or illusions of thought, and they’re often used very surreptitiously by politicians and the media to fool people; so don’t be fooled! Stop allowing it to raise its ugly, incoherent head by.
 1) Characterizing the population (representation) by coverage and nonresponse and
 2) Characterizing individuals (measurement) where there are flaws in the self-report data, records testing, questions framing representational issues, and measurement issues. 

A survey is a systematic method for gathering information from a sampling of units for the purposes of constructing numerical descriptions of the characteristics including attitudes and opinions of the larger population of which the unit is a members of the larger population of which the units are members. 

The procedure for conduction a survey are prespecified, standardized, and explicit, to permit replication by another. The Census is considered a surveys; samples are useful and informative to the extent they are microcosms of the larger populations. The data can come from administrative records, police reports, or really anything that can be sampled. To frame a survey which is a systematic method for gathering that information from a sample of units for the purposes of constructing quantitative descriptions of the characteristics including the units attitudes and opinions of the larger population of which the entities are members. The product of surveys is numbers they are “descriptive statistics” like means and proportions; “analytic statistics” like regression coefficients which I know nothing about.

I myself have little statistical training and I really do not even need to use algebra to figure what is going on because simple math will do. Survey procedures should permit repeatability and have a abundance of information. Like in every other big organization that manipulates the facts law enforcement is no different. The manufacturing of crimes by the police is a very big industry in America. It is part of the even bigger industry of organized crime where the police, the legal profession and the judiciary act together to defraud and criminalize innocent citizens. In a devastating indictment of the American justice system, the US writer, Paul Craig Roberts, has described some of the activities of the US police in an article titled ‘How the Police Create Crimes’. We are aware that the US police are legally using CP to entrap men over the Internet and also posing as underage girls and boys to ensnare men into meetings where they would be arrested and, even in some cases, filmed for television programs. Stories also surfaced about malicious women using help from male FBI agents and police to entrap their ex-husbands and boy friends and for years we have been hearing that the security services use women (all over the world incidentally) to entrap and ruin men who may be politically undesirable to American causes. Roberts reports that the American police are planting attractive women half naked in parks, who entice passing males, engage them in conversation, pretend to begin to seduce them and ask to see their penises. When the foolish men comply, the police with their cameras still running pounce on them in triumph.

Other examples quoted by Roberts are, the New York police ensnaring hundreds of innocents during Operation Lucky Bag in 2007 where police planted IPods, cell phones, wallets, and shopping bags in subway stations as if they had been dropped or abandoned. Pick them up and you are nicked for ‘Subway grand larceny’. (8) He gives a further example of an organized crime that is practiced with ever increasing frequency also by the judiciary. A senior policeman, sheriff or judge tries to force you to sell him your property at a fraction of its value. If you refuse you become a target of the law enforcement apparatus. You are now at the mercy of a Gestapo. When Roberts sums up, he strikes a chord with all that we have learned about the American justice system that we see now in Great Britain and other English-speaking countries which are copying it. “In our time, the police create crimes. And that is why the US prison population is twice the size of China’s, an authoritarian country with a population four to five times larger than America’s.”(9). One only needs to start to think logically to figure this all out. How can we as a nation here in the good old USA have more prisoners than China? How?

It is very important that this be grasped in its fullest implications. It is in the interest of the police and the legal profession that crime be maintained. There are two broad classes of crime.
 1)illegal crime, committed by the underdogs, mainly black males in America, and
 2) legal crime committed by the establishment, mainly the judiciary, the legal profession and the police. The legal criminals need the illegal crime to justify their own predatory roles. How often we see the ‘round up the usual suspects’ routine where any underdog is arrested for a crime whether he did it or not. The police get a result and the crimes which keep them and the legal profession in business continue to flourish. 

On Tuesday April 29 2008, the first actionee whose case has been heard and defended since the formation of the Operation Ore Group Action; a class action lawsuit were found not guilty and acquitted of their Indicitement charge. The police did not even bother turning up at court, let alone say sorry to him. Other cases may now be dropped. The reality is that it is virtually impossible to adequately describe the state of a person’s mind in the period immediately following being accused of sexual abuse in a police station. Especially in its commonest form of child sex abuse; CP.

Despite the decision to commit suicide, or perhaps still seeking its avoidance, the accused may consult his legal advisers. Here is where the words of a Canadian news correspondent take meaning. “And defense lawyers are just plain greedy and spineless. Few and far between are the lawyers who will demand full disclosure, get the charges dropped or at least in line with the supposed offense. If the lawyer is unsupported, pessimistic, or displays a lack of enthusiasm, this may seal the fate of the accused, removing any doubts about SUICIDE being the only remaining option. Unfortunately an option that many take when faced with the overwhelming knowledge they themselves will go to jail.(10). As a matter of fact I feel sorry for the poor public defender that is faced with a crime of the magnitude; especially if they have a agglomeration of those cases. If one is able to afford an attorney they better off they are. However Attorneys are not cheap and the whole affair could cost upward of 100,000 dollars. Faced with the fact you have no Constitutional right it is a no brainier for many and for others death. Imagine a picture or a video causing a death. Something like in “Videodrone” It is something you need to say OUT LOUD! I just allowed a person die because they looked at a picture or video, because I believed what law enforcement arm of NCMEC told me. 

A picture or video is just that and nothing more no matter what its contents. Yes bad things happen to good people. It is especial egregious if it involves a child but never the less it is still only a rose by another name still a rose still a picture or video; nothing more no matter what the content! Say it again; LOUDER! I just allowed a person die because they looked at a picture or video. When you read about someone who commits suicide after a pre dawn raid of their private domain. Put yourself in their place. Walk in their shoes for just one stinking minute. This person has done NO wrong, has hurt NO person, NO place, or NO thing. Now rather than face the ridicule of CP go hang or shoot yourself. Stand up and shout!! I just allowed a person die because they looked at a picture or video. YELL!! GOD forgive me I just allowed a person die because they looked at a picture or video. I believed what law enforcement told me but now I KNOW that it is based on voo-doo science. 

Justices, Judges; judge least ye be judged. Stand with your right hand over your chest or hands clasp together in prayer and say OUT LOUD! I just allowed a person to die because they looked at a picture or video. I believed the voo-doo science of the law enforcement arm of NCMEC. I trusted them and they LIED! I do not need to see electricity to know when I flick the light switch a light comes on. I do not see it but I know it is there. Know this you TAX DOLLARS are going to support the lavish life style of NCMEC and the child abuse industry and not millions BILLIONS. I have another interaction I would like to help you with. Go to Google and type, “people found dead after child porn charges”. What you will find is page upon page of these Suicides but no specific number. That is why they try keep a person in jail; separated divided and conquered. Think about it what would you do if faced with 20yrs. which is typical?

Let me stop here for one minute. What have I, in the person of the writer learned so far?
1) You loose constitutional guarantees or protection. 
2)If you are arrested for CP you loose all that is important in life, family friends. You push people away in fear they may get caught up in the madness. 
3) a person is likely to commit suicide in jail or not. 
4) sexual abuse in children happens.
5) Sexual abuse with children happens mainly within the family. It is called INCEST not Pedophilia.(they use pedophilia or pedophile because INCEST doest sell) 
6) NCMEC and their cohorts have the game rigged to support their massive budget and life styles. The tax payers have paid NCMEC Billions of dollars. They in turn formulate the lie to keep the billions Coming. They have to pay the bills. 5) The child abuse industry pays! 
7) Not everybody should go to collage because an education in the wrong hands is very dangerous. 8) I have been lied to by some of my governments agency’s. Our governments’, use it or loose it budget policies created this monster that has to be quelled by the voters. The government through the legislature needs to fix this. I do not mind living by the law of the land as long as its reciprocal. 9) I am not going to kill myself. I am going to FIGHT! 

Be it Fear, or be it superstitious fixed ideas have left many in everlasting ignorance, of witch they died. A voice crying from this insane abyss needing to be heard over this rhetoric. After being arrested one can develop the nothing to lose attitude. For young fathers with children lives tragically altered devastated never to recover what is real sad it is devastating through ignorance. If the spouse sticks in there it is a live of suspicion. There are a couple of things that can keep a person from going to the dark place under these circumstances. Morales and empathy the same morales and empathy I instilled upon my daughter by doing the right thing. I taught her like I was taught to have them even when someone is trying to hurt you. One can only trust God by keeping a clean house. If a dude has a problem they need to get it taken care. Dude miss sir Mr. hombres mohairs your child is not a play toy. If only turning the cheek were so simple when it comes to CP. This is the perfect tool to go after guns.

Sex abuse and child porn cases are very popular with the police. Old men pose little or no danger for them. They are often helpless; some hooked up to oxygen, frail, cause no resistance; They are arresting their own in the feeding frenzy. Once arrested and knowing how grave the situation is. The legal fees bail, or bond, each can be in the thousands before you even get to first base. They commit suicide. In the current environment, the chances of prosecution are high, and the police gain popularity from the ‘moral indignation’ of society against child sex abusers put forth by the child abuse industry and no one questions them on anything. The government prosecutors federal and state are the one’s calling the shots they fram and carry the message they want without any question. Isn’t our media coverage great here in the Greatest bla bla bla with no oversight in which prosecuting zealots make victims out of kid sexing and thereby ruin their lives as will. There are already real sick shit out there for you to prosecute you need not buttering your bread of the back of others. They have become the architects of oppression. They need victims so they coerce these almost adult girls to be victims otherwise they do what they say or you prosecute the girls for the videos and the girls become victims because you have to have a victim. Then they frame the argument and publish with a media event. Look what were doing with your tax dollars; protecting your children. Does the reader know how many tax dollars they are speaking off?

There is also the positive re enforcement from media exposure and more brain washing, especially when well known people are involved. The new bastions of “child abuse industry protectors” and their prosecutors are using the law to social engineer their morality on others. Knowing full well 95% to 98% of children abused are abused in their own homes; those percentages that have an actual valid number associated with a actual human being. Those statistics state categorically that, “ few abuses are at the hands of strangers” and if that is the case what the hell is going on here?

The child abuse industry say they are out to build a better world but they have destroyed more families here in America than all of the wars, plagues, and pestilences that America has experienced throughout its entire history. Child Protective Services routinely violates the Constitutional rights of parents and their children in the process of their “intervention”. The sex abuse moral panic has been replaced by that of CP, the police have new and even safer corruption possibilities, in which the third party ‘the abused victim’ is not physically involved. Instead digitized representation is made in the form of 0’s and 1’s then resembled from a far. Kids are being kids they capture photos, videos or both share without shame or monetary compensation that is until lawyers monetized it and produced shame. It has become an affront to humanity when finding CP on a computer, or causing it to be there during a sting the police are in an ideal situation to justify their budgets because of the, “If you do not use you budget you will lose it” Use it or loss it accounting has cause government to grow exponentially. There are sections of a police forces who legally employ CP in stings to catch down loaders. They also surf and trawl web sites dealing in adult pornography for possible underage erotic or pornographic images, borderline images, or for links to illegal sites. Consider the possible affects of the power given to insensitive police to censor the sexual morality of citizens. We saw what happened with male and female prison officers in Iraq and now they have been empowered to police sexual morality.

In my 64 yr. It has been my experience the ones that scream the loudest are the ones that have CP on their own computers and how do I know this. The police are arresting the police for CP for Christs sake. If I was able to hook up EnCase law enforcement software right now to every law enforcement agent including those involved with the child abuse industry what do you think the outcome would be? I will tell you that in the public private partnership in these US half would have some sort of CP on their personal computers and or Phones. I would be bet my life on that and I do not even need a survey; Just their computers.

That Ivory tower of hypocrisy will change because the people will change it. More and more people are being served search warrants for CP , neighbors, friends, loved ones and people are beginning to realize that they can be next in line. Corrections Corporation of America has a capacity of more than 80,000 beds in 65 correctional facilities. The GEO Group operates 57 facilities with a capacity of 49,000 beds The company owns or runs more than 100 properties that operate more than 73,000 beds in sites across the world. Sooner or latter people wondering if they are next will begin shout, “enough, is enough” with monitoring. We are already a police state where we are being monitored 24 X 7 via computer, phone ,internet traffic cams, web cams, and drones. Unfortunately the masses need to be sick and tired of being sick and tired before things change. It has to in a civilized way through the courts themselves. Hopefully and by the Grace of God people will begin to wake up from the brain washing that has been going on for decades from the child abuse industry. They have become very powerful and even more so because they are and arm of the law through the public private partnership. All those Iraqi and Afghanistan intelligence soldiers have come home joined police departments. That is the only way government seems to be able to stimulate the economy being held back from doing massive infrastructure projects so millions are being pumped into law enforcement. Not to deal with the Wall ST. rip off CEO’s or the massive gang problem but by sitting behind a computer screen looking for people that inadvertently or not download CP. Then they making those individuals look real bad with press conferences. They even try to turn the family against the one they are arresting. Classified files provided previously by NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden contain new details about ground breaking surveillance technology. The agency has developed it to infect millions of computers worldwide with malware “implants.”. The clandestine initiative enables the NSA to break into targeted computers.

Courts will begin, at a point in time, to realize the hypocrisy that although justice is blind it still wields a mighty cane. The power of the court is in relatives term omniscient they possess the power to take away life and liberty; with CP it is life in relative terms. I believe the courts wisdom will prevail and they will find out what it really going on and investigate. To put a responsible productive member of society behind bars, deny them life and liberty for having nothing but 1984 Orwellian Thought-crime. A crime in which there is no real statistical evidence that one is being harmed by the person having that Thought crime. Justices will eventually see the apples and oranges of the whole issue. I believe in our Nations legal system and that is why I’m writing this report, a report written in adversity under what I perceive to be tyranny.

Many years ago our freedom of expression was defended on the premise that a free exchange of ideas was necessary in order to discover the truth about a number of issues. Now it is being defended by the NSA and other secretive government institutions on the premise that we are incapable of knowing the truth because we are unable to know the truth about much if anything. There has been a shift from seeing freedom of expression as fulfilling a particular purpose; to seeing it as an end in itself. The rationale for this freedom has changed not to moral relativism in which nobody is right or wrong and we tolerate the behavior of others even when we disagree about their morality to righteous indignation. 

Righteous indignation is a reactive emotion of anger over perceived mistreatment; in this case mistreatment of a child. The child abuse industry through brain washing has feed this ugly concept to the American people over time using a large spoon on the premise their principles can be validated by reason. However when one brings that concept out into the light of day one finds it far from the truth. The broad brush of idioms in which they paint their canvas is atrocious and ruins lives. In some Christian doctrines righteous indignation is considered the only form of anger which is not sinful. They have a long track record of squashing political views and burning people at the stake when that persons cultural material offends them. Denying someone their freedom of expression goes hand in hand with violations of other rights defended on the ground with no definitive standard by which we may judge what is true. The child abuse industry does not have any standard by which we can distinguish reason in pursuit of truth. Instead I believe their passion is derived from the pursuit of greed in quest of gain and that gives them pleasure as they all go laughingly to the bank with tax payer dollars. Since the child abuse industry has no standard that can justify supporting freedom of expression they instead support the suppression of expression saying obscenity does not have any public value and no First Amendment rights. On that basis there is no philosophic barrier to censoring it; thus it is not inconsistent for the law to guarantee freedom of speech freedom of press while at the same time suppressing both.

The law can and must make distinctions and recognize degrees of difference in applying its general rules to the decision of particular cases. The distinctions will be easily and accurately made in regard to freedom of speech and press. We need to get back to asking questions insistently more so than we have in recent years. Questioning what we are trying to protect and why are we pursuing this relativistic rationale? Underlying the “freedom of expression” for obscenity undermines all freedom. Moral relativism removes all rational grounds supporting freedom, since on the basis of relativism there is no philosophical foundation for supporting freedom over repression. The media and Fundamentalist Christians may welcome conservative values for wanting restrictions placed on obscenity. However it is their own philosophical doctrine perspective that undercuts that freedom. In the long run that’s true absolute and will be especially true when they come for your guns under the guise of CP. 

Justice Brennan wrote that it was the opinion of the court that pornographic images and obscene material were not protected by either the freedom of speech nor press. By reiterating that the First Amendment had limitations by stating lewd material is utterly without redeeming social importance. He wrote the definition of obscenity as “whether to the average person applying contemporary community standards, the dominant theme of the material is taken as a whole appeals to the prurient interest.”. That decision of what was obscene was declared as something that most people would find objectionable. Sixteen years later, the U.S. Supreme Court modified the definition of obscenity yet again still keeping the contemporary community standards’ test to define what is or is not protected speech.

In using the “contemporary community standards” qualifier of the Roth case(233) justices added additional qualifiers. Obscenity was either “patently offensive,” “lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value,” or “utterly without redeeming value”. The court has struggled to tact an explicit definition to obscenity or pornography. Its rulings have given both the state and federal government leeway in deciding what pornography is by using the Miller test to determine what material freely available to Americans they may find objectionable qualifying it as obscenity and not protected speech. (59)

The Child Abuse industry lobbied the Child On-line Protection Act (COPA) with sweeping laws that censor the Internet and they have broad support among conservative Christian Fundamentalist and family oriented groups. Free speech advocates allege that, the government has no right to censor speech on the Internet or it cannot reduce adults to hearing and seeing only speech that the government considers suitable for children. Recent attempts to protect copyright infringement such as the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) and Protect IP Act (PIPA) led to massive on-line protests which helped kill both bills. Issues of on-line piracy and obscenity by community standards will be used to drive the battles over freedom of speech will continue the USA. Regardless of the current climate in Washington DC, Americans must be able to express their opinion and access information from a free press because these freedoms are essential to liberty and the democratic form of government. While it may seem that changes in culture and technology have made certain U.S. Supreme Court interpretations and precedents irrelevant our First Amendment rights are just as important today as when they were first passed in 1791. One need to remember that our government is only as good as the liberty it allows us. When we express ourselves we are able to have the necessary input into the political process. Whether through a free press, in writing, or through digital media where videos of how people interact no matter the age is available. Why because it is news; even if that news goes against our grain we need to do research and get information on our government as well as its officials. Americans today continue to need the freedoms, of speech, and press, including what some perceive to be obscene. Especially in the light that those obscenity laws were produced through legislators that were given faulty and misleading information from the child abuse industry lobby NCMEC.

Between 2001 and 2013, the FBI Violent Crimes Against Children program has recorded the following statistics which they call accomplishments. The FBI boasts their approximate number of informations and indictments are more than 16,152. Their approximate number of arrests are more than 23,953 with an approximate number of convictions being more than 16,962. Let put this in the light of day and take a look at those figures. They had 16,152 indictments out of 23,953 arrests meaning 7,801 people lives were destroyed unnecessary. The FBI do not come right out and say it because as with the rest of government they figure your to lazy to check and do not directly mention that in their accomplishments. They do mention that they have more than 16,962 convictions which means 810 people were convicted without indictment? The law enforcement arm of federal government state they exactly know so they have to estimate adding to the voo-doo. All our CP laws are based on voo-doo science.(43) In science and statistics either there is an exact number or there is not. The FBI does not know how many they have arrested and instead provide approximates just like their voo-doo counter parts in the private public law enforcement arm of NCMEC.

On 02/21/2004 the FBI began its Endangered Child Alert Program (ECAP), an aggressive approach to identify unknown individuals involved in the sexual abuse of children and production of child pornography. The ECAP uses national and international media exposure of unknown ADULTS featured in child pornography and displays their face on the “Seeking Information” section of the FBI’s website in hopes someone can identify them. They also called the school shooters child abusers including crimes that cross legal, geographical, and jurisdictional boundaries. All for the express purpose of protecting our nation’s greatest asset our children which is a logical fallacy.(232)

Our current law CP laws are based on how people previously viewed child pornography; pre internet. CP use to be in a magazine or film that a person is able to see, feel, touch and hold in their hands. Those laws do not address the current wave of CP prosecutions where miraculously thousands are rounded up prosecuted as pedophiles and throw in jail. Law enforcement is able to do this with impunity through the ignorance of the population. They have people so frightened they do not ask questions for fear of being consumed by its insanity. Reporters themselves do not report, or investigate; as to why all of a sudden we have thousands of pedophiles in jail every year for the past two decades as if someone waved a magic wand and they just appeared. These laws based on voo doo science reflect the current reality of CP and how it is looked at today by surfing the web. Federal law stipulates that CP is against the law for everyone. Police have to break the law to catch someone with CP because they themselves have to search it out, download it, look at it using the same techniques’ law breakers use. Think about this; the police robing a bank to find a bank robber or the police do drugs to catch drug users both good analogies. If the police state they were only looking for hash-tags of CP and not the actual CP it is important to know hash tags can be sent without there corresponding image.

I would like the reader to think logically please; I do not want you to believe a word I write. I do want you to find out for yourself by reading all you can about this hostile dilemma. Between the years 1996 to 2005 that being 8ys. there was as a 2,026% or Two Thousand and Twenty Six percent increase in cases opened by the FBI. In which no reporters showed up no news cameras, no anything. If it were anything else they would be DEMANDING answers; However the news people have done nothing which has allowed for this cowboy like atmosphere. The news would normally go after anything that had a 2,026% increase in it, but not so with CP. On that very same page the FBI says there were 15,556 cases opened between that same time period in which there is even a larger difference of 13,154 people. The governments’ philosophy seems to be if we can’t dazzle you with brilliance we will baffle you with bull-shit, and it is working. If we were to acknowledge the FBI’s report of 15,556 cases opened in that same time period that would make it a 17,578% increase and not just a 2,026% increase in cases opened. Where are the reporters? Who is going to report this? Out of the 15,556 cases opened by the FBI only 4,784 were indicted leaving 10,772 lives destroyed along with their families. Still no reporter reporting! The FBI also reports a 856% increase in indictments being 99 people to 946 people. That means they choose to destroy 1,456 peoples lives because they choose not use surveillance to see if actual harm was coming to children. Lives needlessly destroyed by government agency’s, caught up in their use it or lose it budget mentality. Our trusted government has turned against us needlessly and there is no one out there to stop them. (234). 

Because your tax dollars are better spent when they are spread around in 2004 the FBI launched along with a myriad of other law enforcement personal Operation Peer Pressure. They conducted 166 undercover on-line sessions using P2P networks in which FBI Agents download child pornography from offender’s computers. The FBI states that operation netted over 300 search warrants to be executed; out of those 300 warrants 69 subjects were indicted and 63 subjects were arrested, and over 40 convictions were achieved. Let us break that down. Out of the 166 on line searches 300 search warrants were issued there by destroying 300 lives including the lives of the people in those homes searched. Out of those 300 only 69 were indicted and 231 were not, but the newspapers only reported their arrests and destroying their lives as well. Only 63 were arrested out of the 300 and 40 convictions achieved. So the FBI believes it is OK to destroy 260 peoples lives to convict 40 people for doing nothing more than look at pictures. In 2003 the FBI began started a nationwide initiative to investigate child sexual abuse in eGroups that are typically by invite only. There were 180 search warrants issued of which 162 people were indicted thus leaving 18 lives needlessly destroyed. Of those 162 indicted only 89 people were arrested meaning the grand jury did not find enough evidence to indite 73 people but the prosecutor only arrested 89 people and here is where it gets interesting. Confused yet? You bet yea! This is just the way they like it because they figure your to stupid to check for yourself. The FBI states there were over 100 convictions in that operation yet there were only 89 arrests. How do they do it? Voo-doo science and miss informing the misinformed. 

Lawrence C. Matthews had worked as a broadcast journalist for more than 25yrs. Most of that time was spent as a staff reporter or news director of radio stations in the Washington, D.C. area.   Matthews had also worked and was working in television.  In addition he had written print stories for several newspapers, including an article on homelessness for The Washington Post, in which he spent a week on the streets as a homeless person doing research.. In 1983, his documentary piece on Vietnam veterans, “They Served with Honor,” won numerous journalism honors, including the George Foster Peabody Award. In March 1996. America OnLine, Inc. shut down Matthews’ account in response to his attempt to create his own chat room called “SugarDad4yFem.”. They claim from July through December of 96, Matthews logged on to other chat rooms as well and initiated conversations with individuals who identified themselves as minor females. According to law enforcement he engaged them in sexually explicit discussions; However many of these on-line conversations actually involved FBI agents’ who were posing as minor females. Matthews claims that he was aware of that fact but the agents’ activities were part of his research into the role of law enforcement in policing CP on the Internet. 

During this same period, the FBI documented approximately 160 photographs depicting CP were either sent or received by Matthews over the Internet. Matthews stated he did not know that sending and receiving CP was illegal saying that only through trading in CP could he, “infiltrate a world he otherwise would have no access to.”. According to Matthews, those trafficking in CP would not “converse” with him unless he forwarded a pornographic images to them, thereby demonstrating he was not associated with law enforcement authorities. The FBI had begun monitoring Matthews’ on-line activities in the early summer of 1996. On September 17, 1996, an FBI agent met with Matthews apparently to discuss the earlier information he had given to the FBI in the course of his investigation for a WTOP radio series.   At that time, Matthews did not inform the agent that he was presently receiving and transmitting CP, nor did the agent inform Matthews that such activity was illegal. Three months later, on December 11, 1996, FBI agents executed a search warrant on Matthews’ home.  The search team found work papers regarding various topics, but no notes or other research documents regarding CP or child prostitution or any depictions of CP.   Matthews said he did not save his on-line conversations and acknowledges that he did not keep many notes for the CP article. He maintained that he gave his counsel seven or eight pages of notes he had taken, but was unable to produce them. During the FBI search agents interviewed Matthews and his wife. According to the agents, Matthews stated that he had traded CP over the Internet to research a three-part series for WTOP , but was not currently working on the CP story. Matthews and his wife maintain they did inform the agents about currently working on such a story.

On July 28, 1997, a federal grand jury indicted Matthews for violating the Protection of Children Against Sexual Exploitation Act, Title 18:2252. Matthews was charged with 6 counts of transmitting CP over the Internet, 9 counts of receiving CP over the Internet both in violation of Title 18:2252, and they were the first criminal charges ever lodged against Matthews. Matthews moved to dismiss the indictment, asserting that Title 18:2252 was unconstitutional as applied to him, a bona fide journalist researching a news story. Specifically, Matthews argued that the statute infringed his First Amendment free speech and free press rights by violating his due process rights because they contained no mens rea which means guilty mind. The prosecutor must establish a guilty mind an element requiring a person transmitting CP to, “have a morally blameworthy mental state when doing so.”. The government opposed this motion, contending that the evidence showed Matthews had not received and transmitted CP solely for journalistic purposes, and even assuming he had, the statute was constitutional as applied to him.  The government argued that Matthews’ claim that he was receiving and transmitting CP to research a news story constituted no defense to the charges against him. On this basis, the government filed a motion in limine or threshold urging the district court to exclude any evidence, testimony, or argument regarding Matthews’ alleged journalistic motive for trafficking in CP. The district court denied Matthews’ motion to dismiss and granted the government’s motion in limine. They concluded that the First Amendment provided no defense in Matthews’ case because Matthews had entered into a conditional plea agreement with the government, which the district court accepted. Under the plea agreement, Matthews pled guilty to one count of receiving CP and one count of transmitting CP. The court reserved his right to appeal the district court’s rulings on his motion to dismiss and the government’s motion in limine as well as all sentencing issues. At the sentencing hearing, Matthews requested a downward departure based on his claim that he traded CP solely for news gathering purposes.  The district court declined to grant a downward departure, finding that Matthews had failed to establish by a preponderance of the evidence that his motivation for trafficking in CP was solely to obtain information for an article. Matthews raised three arguments on appeal.
1) he asserts that New York v. Ferber recognizes a persons First Amendment privilege to use CP as a research tool to create a work of journalism, and that the district court erred in prohibiting him from presenting evidence to a jury in support of his defense. 
2) Second, Matthews contends that Title 18:2252(a) contravenes “due process by not including as an essential element that the defendant must have acted with a criminal intent.” 
3) Third, he maintains that the district court erred during sentencing by denying his request for a downward departure and that Koon v. United States 1996, overruled our precedent holding such a denial unreviewable.

Matthews’ argued his First Amendment freedoms of speech, the press, and assembly are firmly rooted in our ideals of liberty and democracy and the strength of our system of self-government hinges upon the preservation of these freedoms citing; Pittsburgh Press Co. v. Pittsburgh Comm’n on Human Relations 1973. There he argues that protection afforded these freedoms against legislative abridgment is expansive. The courts having consistently invoked the basic principle that “ideas having EVEN THE SLIGHTEST REDEEMING SOCIAL IMPORTANCE”. (I explain the capitals further on) deserve sanctuary within the public discourse.(11) Roth v. United States 1957. Citing; that our “democracy stands on a stronger footing when courts protect First Amendment interests against legislative intrusion, rather than deferring to merely rational legislative judgments in this area.”(12) Metromedia, Inc. v. City of San Diego 1981. Citing; First Amendment freedoms thus provide an indispensable foundation for our government, but these freedoms are not absolute.  For example, the Constitution permits limitations on “speech which advocates conduct inimical to the public welfare,” American Communications Ass’n, C.I.O. v. Douds 1950, citing speech which constitutes “no essential part of any exposition of ideas,”(44) R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul,1992. Citing; The Supreme Court, “in different contexts, has consistently held that government may directly regulate speech to address extraordinary problems, where its regulations are appropriately tailored to resolve those problems without imposing an unnecessarily great restriction on speech.”(13) Denver Area Educ. Telecommunications Consortium, Inc. v. FCC, 1996. Citing; The protection of children clearly constitutes a “public welfare” interest justifying regulation of speech in certain circumstances.(14) Reno v. ACLU, 1997 addressed the constitutionality of two provisions of Communications Decency Act of 1996 intended to protect children from “indecent” and “patently offensive” material on Internet, but finding statutory provisions over broad. (15) FCC v. Pacifica 1978 Citing; upheld FCC restrictions on broadcast in part because of broadcast’s “unique accessibility to children. (16) Ginsberg v. New York, 1968 Citing; upheld statute prohibiting sale of obscene materials to minors. (17) Prince v. Massachusetts, 1944 Citing; stated that “a democratic society rests, for its continuance, upon the healthy, well-rounded growth of young people into full maturity as citizens”.(18) 

The Supreme Court has consistently upheld restrictions on First Amendment freedoms to combat the so called “extraordinary problem” of CP referring to Osborne v. Ohio, 1990.(19) New York v. Ferber 1982(20) The court dealt with those issues using the voo-doo science that was presented them. They chose to believe the child abuse industry and rightly so; who would lie to Justices. Unfortunately Matthews’ arguments were met with that voo-doo based science. The court depends on what monographs, book, and papers sent them via NCMEC. Why hasn’t anyone told them? Matthews initially presents an issue of first impression in this circuit. Does the First Amendment permit a bona fide reporter to trade in CP to “create a work of journalism”? NO 

Matthews was convicted of violating the Protection of Children Against Sexual Exploitation Act. The statute prohibits the knowing interstate transportation, by any means including by computer, of “any visual depiction of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct” or the knowing receipt of such a depiction that has been “transported in interstate commerce by any means including by computer.” Title 18: 2252(a)(1), (2) contains no exception for transmission or receipt of CP with artistic, scientific, literary, journalistic, or other “legitimate” value. Matthews maintains that the First Amendment entitles him to a defense if he is convicted under the statute. 

Matthews principally relies on New York v. Ferber(20), which involved a constitutional challenge to a state statute, in relevant respects identical to Title 18:2252(a) (1) and (2).  In Ferber,the owner of a bookstore “specializing in sexually oriented products” asserted that a New York statute barring dissemination of materials depicting a child engaged in sexual conduct, regardless of whether such materials were obscene, violated the First Amendment. The Supreme Court unanimously upheld the statute, finding it consistent with the First Amendment, a state could prohibit the distribution of material that depicted children engaged in sexual acts, even if that material was not obscene. The Court determined not only was CP, obscene but there was adult pornography that was obscene and was without First Amendment protection. They also said the legislature was “entitled to greater leeway in the regulation of pornographic depictions of children” than in the regulation of adult pornography.(20). What the justices did not take into account; Ferber is about printed material in the light of day. Entirely different from the personal computer where things are “meant to be personal”. Digital works are not printed works they do not take form unless I give them form and until such a time it is a thought on my personal computer a digit nothing more. NCMEC has turned a Southern incest problem into the child abuse industry shame on them. 

Some people need to stop and look around at their surroundings. If you are fortunate enough to have children, are you children fine? Are they taken care of? Are they respected by you? So are the majority of children in this nation or do your feel as though your children are unique. The child abuse industry has you baffled! Are you or your children Aboriginal? Do you have anything in common with Aboriginal tribes? Then why in God’s name are you listening to Aboriginal research?  

The National Child Victim Identification System (NCVIS) is owned by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). It is an application that assists federal, state, local, and international law enforcement agencies, INTERPOL, and other supporting organizations. NCMEC is authorized to partner with NCVIS in the investigation and prosecution of child exploitation crimes, specifically those involving images of child sexual exploitation. NCVIS maintains a repository of digital images of child exploitation seized and/or submitted to ICE and other federal agencies for comparison. Images may capture the faces or other identifying features of the victims and violators involved in these crimes. Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) expanded the scope of that system of information. Now it is shared with other authorized partners that maintain their own databases of images related to child exploitation crimes for the purposes of identifying the children. This expanded sharing was intended to allow law enforcement personnel to use the images during investigations to identify and rescue children and identify and prosecute perpetrators.

The Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) for NCVIS was originally published on August 21, 2009. Because HSI is expanding the scope of NCVIS information that is shared with authorized partners, an update to the NCVIS PIA was required. Other systems include; DHS/NPPD/PIA-021 a Joint Cybersecurity Services Program Defense Industrial Base (DIB) and Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (DECS). Component: National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD). Approved July 18, 2012. The Joint Cybersecurity Services Pilot (JCSP) is the Department’s voluntary information sharing initiative with the Department of Defense (DOD) and participating commercial companies. NPPD is updating the DHS/NPPD/PIA-021 National Cyber Security Division Joint Cybersecurity Services Pilot PIA that was published on January 13, 2012, to reflect the establishment of Joint Cybersecurity Services Program (JCSP) as an ongoing permanent program. The purpose of the program is to enhance the cybersecurity of participating critical infrastructure entities through information sharing partnerships with the critical infrastructure organization or their Commercial Service Provider (CSP). (21)

I know it is very hard to understand but it is that way for a reason. Its intentionally made that way because of all the child porn found on government computers. So now NCVIS is owned by ICE’s HSI. HSI is expanding the scope of system information that is shared with authorized partners that maintain their own databases of images related to child exploitation crimes for the purposes of identifying the child victims. Supporting law enforcement investigations and prosecutions of these crimes is Joint Cybersecurity Services(JCS), Program Defense Industrial Base (DIB), and Enhanced Cybersecurity Services (DECS), Joint Cybersecurity Services Pilot(JCSP), and they all each and everyone have child pornographic data bases. Then there is a single database of the “worst of the worst” maintained by Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, a Los Angeles charity founded by the Hollywood actors Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Each internet company has its own process to identify and remove explicit pictures they will combine forces and share their private lists of abuse images with a central repository held by Thorn. Each company can gain access to the master database for review. For some irony, Moore who was 16 when Kutcher was born. Both being excellent actors they founded the organization after they were moved by a documentary on sexual slavery not in the USA but in Cambodia. Because it is illegal to hold the actual child abuse images, Thorn’s database will be made up of these digital signatures. I only mention the later because like I have argued it is possible to have a digital signature, fingerprint, hash-tag, DNA or what ever phrase is being used all meaning the same thing are just that and nothing more. That means you can be in possession of the digital signature, fingerprint, hash-tag, DNA and not be in possession of the image itself. No image No crime. Let me put this in perspective and try to see the logic in their thinking. So I have a test for you., here goes. Ashton and Demi are moved watching a documentary on sexual slavery in Cambodia so they look at each other and they said 
1)lets go to Cambodia with all our money and try to make these children’s lives better. OR
2) lets build a CP data base in the USA.
This is just one more hashtag database.

Back to reality; in 2013 a suspected image of CP was sent through AOL, a report was filed with NCMEC and NCMEC contacted the Massachusetts police. Several months later, the defendant took his computer to Staples for repair, and employees notified New Hampshire police that child pornography was found on the laptop. Relying on the NCMEC evidence a search warrant was obtained and executed. Now charged with distribution and possession of child pornography, the defendant sought to suppress the evidence. The district court first decided that the hash value matching conducted by AOL did not make AOL a government agent because they were conducting the search for their own purposes. Then, NCMEC did act as a government agent through its “partnership with the government,” and in examining the contents of the image, they violated the Fourth Amendment. AOL’s matching the hash values did “not convey any information about the contents of the file.” but the viewing of the file by NCMEC “was not authorized by a duly issued warrant.”. The court still continued holding that probable cause existed for the search purely as a result of the New Hampshire police report regarding the child pornography found by Staples. The court also held that NCMEC and law enforcement were acting in good faith, and as such, “the exclusionary rule should not be applied to suppress the fruits of the search.”(48) 

Brian Fanelli’s was arrested On Nov. 9, 2014 Just eight days after he became Mount Pleasant’s NJ Police Chief. Brian Fanelli’s career unraveled right before his eyes as this man for all intensive purpose was a God fearing man who contributed greatly to his community was arrested. Agents using investigative software designed for P2P networks determined a particular IP address later linked to one of Fanelli’s three home computers was sharing CP. and they started a download of a file called “yo jovencita 14” from his computer that afternoon, encountering a wrinkle that stalled the download and allowed them to view only the initial screen image of a person’s neck and shoulder. But investigators determined the file’s hash value, matching it with files from prior investigations(one database) of child exploitation. It also was identified in another database kept by the NCMEC. Two similar files were downloaded from the computer Jan. 3, 2014. Investigators also encountered a failed download in files, which started showing a girl beginning to remove her underwear. NCMEC is the only ones storing those sick files. They maintain a registry of those files containing CP along with the files hash value or digital fingerprints but unlike a conventional fingerprint it can be left anywhere anytime on anyone computer without them knowing. Although a MD5 hash-value is the finger print of the file it is not the file itself. Those same hash values could block CP on the internet completely but they do what they do in favor of arrest and incarceration. Why?

When CP images are copied from one computer to another, the title names may be changed but the hash values do not but as I have written NCMEC isn’t the only one with CP databases are they? (22) From what I have read they are the ones the only ones that after thirty years have all the real sick images. A video hashes may tell you the hash is there which is typically associated to a file but it does not tell you the file is there. One can have a video hash with the video or without the video all subject to incidental or malicious distortions.

Voo Doo Science of re-victimization; Kids, even adult kids generally tend to tell you what you want to hear; especially if you an adult kid in prison or an adult kid with an attorney as a victim. The police DO NOT have to tell you the truth! They are not required by law to do so!

Authorities due to their lack of knowledge and or motivation, judges due to overwhelming case load or just plain shortsightedness about CP have wrongly suspected and often convicted thousands of people. There were fathers lives destroyed, families ruined, and people eventual committing suicide. Masses of accused people have even admitted guilt even though innocent in order to avoid public humiliation in a court of law where increased sentences are use as convincers.(24). The child abuse industry is destroying families needlessly it is so sad. First you hear of a person arrest then you hear about their death all in the same breathe like its so so. How sad, how very sad.

One of CP’s the first big story’s was the Landslide Operation Ore case. 70,000 users had purchased CP from Landslide a Russian company. Landslide itself had nothing to do with CP, but because Landslide developed a portal where money could be transferred. Russian CP operators opened accounts and then tried to sell CP under these accounts. The manager of Landslide, extremely naive did not have enough control over the accounts, payment processing and fraud. He did not notice that several credit cards were charged more than once or that client IPs did not match with the issuing bank. The CEO of Landslide was himself the victim of a gigantic fraud. CP operators made a deal with the Russian Carders who got their credit cards and identities from the U.S. Mafia. With the help of a Trojan using thousands of stolen credit cards brought the company Landslide insane revenues. It was already too late for Landslide manager and the thousands of innocent people who had there card charged but for the this meant the end of family life, loss of employment and even the end of any hope that led to a subsequent suicide. Much worse is that the U.S. police manipulated the website of Landslide AFTERWARDS (25).

The productions were made by third parties for commercial purposes like the LS Studios and were always made voluntarily. You see the kids grinning a big fun in front of the camera. I know some of these children are now teenagers or have even reached the age of majority. Many regret that they no longer can be models and did not understand why they suddenly no longer were photographed. Even tougher pictures from St. Petersburg show girls in their first voluntary sexual experimentation. Also there you can see that for the girls it is a game and that they had fun. Mother were informed and they allowed their daughter to participate. Nobody had suffered, no one had been forced and these were free decisions so why society can not simply accept this fact? Even the money was not always the driving force. There were certainly girls from very good homes that had no shortage of money. (26) They had a passion for voyeurism, naked posing, at a very young age explained many girls now woman. Today you can see that same behaviour with the phenomenon of “Sexting” where children and young people share very provocative pictures with each other, according to reports up to 20% of young people make and share this kind of pictures.

A new web site, hosted at DreamHost Web Hosting California showed suggestive images of Masha Allen, a Russian girl adopted by an American pedophile. Over the years, she was not only his daughter but also his lover. The photos made rounds around the globe and the father for lack of a better term was finally identified and jailed. The girl Masha was re adopted by a woman from Georgia and now Masha Allen has massively greedy lawyers. Law enforcement left this website up with suggestive pictures of Masha. They offer the option to purchase a subscription to get access to more pictures and whoever was lured by this stunt, not only received an immediate visit by the police but also was threatened by a civil action in the American style of juris pridence. In other words they faced multi-million claims so that the person has to spend rest of their life paying the lawyers of Masha Allen who charge enormous fees and give the rest to Masha Allen. A nice business model, isn’t it? It gets worse; the New York state prosecutor Cuomo has started negotiations with the private company Media Defender (Anti-P2P Piracy Solutions) in California to look for people that exchange CP via the P2P networks. The aim, therefore, is to give the task of evidence collection and denunciation of Internet users to a company in the private sector. According to U.S. law, the company itself is not allowed to search specifically for CP, but this does not bother the U.S. Prosecutor because to them it is ultimately a good cause, but is it? Media Defender is also a company with strong connections to film and music industry and it is the same company that pushed the conviction of children downloading music illegally on the Internet. (27)

The United States is a respected democracy that over the years has permitted the use of torture for a good cause and for the protection of the society. A prison society is growing quickly and is operated by the private sector in which approximately 2% of the population is serving some sort of sentence, most of them in a prison. Private prison operators are even traded on the stock market and they are known to be very profitable and sustainable as more and more prisons are built and more and more people are put into prison which has increased 4% each year and “Producing” convicted criminals HAS BECOME A HIGHLY PROFITABLE INDUSTRY and more and more criminals have to be produced so that the money keeps coming. There are credible rumors of bribes from operators of the prison to the judges and prosecutors they pay premiums for their so called new convictions that result in a prison stay. So you don’t have to be so picky in any investigation, let alone employ qualified officers and in this way there is always a sufficient supply of people to put in prison plus YOU HAVE TO CRIMINALIZE A LOT OF THINGS. At this point, the reader should pause and do a little reflection on their part, and let this go once more through their brain about this beautiful, great democracy.(28) 

In the “kids for cash” scandal of 2008 judicial kickbacks at the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania two judges, President Judge Mark Ciavarella and Senior Judge Michael Conahan, were accused of accepting money from Robert Mericle a builder of two private for-profit juvenile facilities and in return for contracting with the facilities and imposing harsh sentences on juveniles brought before their courts to increase the number of inmates in the detention centers.(29) Judge Ciavarella sentenced children to extended stays in juvenile detention for offenses as minimal as mocking a principal on Myspace or trespassing in a vacant building, and shoplifting from Wal-mart. 

Judges Ciavarella and Conahan pled guilty on February 13, 2009, pursuant to a plea agreement, to federal charges of honest services fraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States by failing to report their income to the IRS known as tax evasion; also in connection with receiving $2.6 million in payments from managers at the PA Child Care in Pittston Township and its sister company Western PA Child Care in Butler County. (30) (31) After the original plea agreement, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered an investigation of the cases handled by the judges and following its outcome overturned several hundred convictions of youths in Luzerne County. Their plea agreement was voided by a federal judge dissatisfied with the post plea conduct of both judges and the Judges charged subsequently withdrew their guilty pleas, raising the possibility of a criminal trial. After the original plea agreement, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered an investigation of the cases handled by the judges and following its outcome overturned several hundred convictions of youths in Luzerne County. (32) The Juvenile Law Center filed a class action lawsuit against the judges and numerous other parties, and the state legislature created a commission to investigate the wide-ranging juvenile justice problems in the county.(155) 

The FBI and the IRS also investigated the two judges while probing practices in Luzerne County., although the exact dates and scope of the investigations by the two federal agencies were not made public. In part the investigation was revealed to have occurred during disciplinary hearings over the conduct of another former Luzerne County judge, Anne H. Lokuta. Lokuta was brought before the Judicial Conduct Board of Pennsylvania in November 2006 to answer charges of using court workers to do her personal bidding, openly displaying bias against some attorneys arguing before her, and publicly berating staff to cause mental distress.[20] The board ruled against Lokuta in November 2008 and she was removed from the bench. During the course of the disciplinary hearings, Lokuta accused then Judge Michael Conahan of bullying behavior and charged that he was behind a conspiracy to have her removed. (45) Lokuta aided the federal investigation into the “kids for cash” scheme prior to the determination of the disciplinary board, and a stay order was issued in March 2009 by the state Supreme Court in light of the ongoing corruption investigations, halting Lokuta’s removal and the election that was to be held in May to replace her.(33) 

A class action lawsuit was also filed by the Juvenile Law Center on behalf of the juveniles who were adjudicated delinquent by Ciavarella despite not being represented by counsel or advised of their rights. The suit seeks damages under the civil portion of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act or RICO act against the judges’ spouses and business associates, shell companies, prison operators, and Luzerne County. Three other federal lawsuits filed on behalf of the victims have been consolidated with the Juvenile Law Center lawsuit into a master class action and a amended master complaint was filed on August 28, 2009.(34)

In June 2010 an injunction was filed on behalf of PA Child Care, Western PA Child Care, and Mid Atlantic Youth Services, the very companies that provided treatment programs to the juvenile detention centers to prevent the ordered destruction of thousands of juvenile records on the grounds the records are needed for the defense’s case.(35) On July 8, 2013, a three-judge panel of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in the case of Markel International Insurance Company v. Robert J. Powell, his business partner Gregory Zappala. The insurance company had no obligation to defend or indemnify the individuals or corporations involved, leaving the defendants liable for adverse judgments.(36) Federal agents investigating child pornography searched the home and office of Anthony V. Mangione, head of ICE in South Florida. Mangione, 50, headed ICE’s regional office since 2007 and has aggressively targeted child pornography. Mangione also vehemently spoke out against “predators’’ who illegally share images through their computers. Mangione stated, “Too many children are victimized by predators that target the most vulnerable among us our children,” in a 2009 press release announcing that a 20yo old Palm Beach County man was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison on child porn charges. As is the case with drug abuse those that cry the loudest have the biggest problem. Mangione’s name oftens howed up on press releases praising the agency’s efforts to fight child pornography, in both the cyber and real worlds. In statements, he talked about using technology to combat child pornography and his agency’s resolve to combat the crime. The overwhelming flow of child pornography appeals into the docket of the U.S. Is also a little know realiety in the military’s highest appellate court. 67% of the docket in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces consists of child pornography appeals. The dominant demographic for both military personnel as well as CP consumers is 18 to 45 years of age. The big difference is civilians must consider lawyer fees where as there is no financial barrier to appeal for military members because they are represented by judge advocates; However the most compellingly point is there are many questions that are still unsettled by federal and state legislators and the court regarding what should be criminalized surrounding the search and seizure of computer or internet material which contributes to the likelihood that there is grounds to bring appeal. (37) 

When law enforcement search for CP from remote locations they use “Hash Values” or digital fingerprints which are frequently used to authenticate electronic evidence from a hard drive that is examined to a particular file or document. Hash values are uniformly accepted as a digital fingerprint. United States v. Finley(38), noted Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA) “values are, in essence, unique digital fingerprints or signatures”; United States v. Richardson(39), referred to a “hash value” as a digital fingerprint; United States v. Henderson(40), A “hash value” is a digital fingerprint. If too small a hash table for the data set size and or a bad hash function the elements can start to build in one index in the array. In theory all element could end up in the same linked list. Therefore, to do a search in the worst case is equivalent to looking up a data element in a linked list. However, with a good hash function and a well created hash table, the chances of this happening for all intent and purpose is ignorable. The bigger the ratio between the size of the hash table and the number of data elements, the less chance there is for collision. The drawback to making the hash table big enough so the chances of collision are ignorable is wasted memory space. A good hash function is prone to collisions when two input strings map to the same output string. A good hash application would be design a hash function of a length indicated by answering this question in order to guarantee an upper bound on the probability of a hash collision.

A major problem with Encase Forensic Software(ECF) involved indications of technical misunderstandings and questionable vernacular for examples “BSD” is not “a Linux variant” p. 91 Encase manual; also there is no such thing as “BSD Linux” p. 231 of encase manual. Plus the authors’ faith in MD5 hash should be positioned against research from the last few years and the “approved solution” for shutting down a Unix server with comands such as “synch, halt”. There was a lack of non Windows based material which made me question the relevance of the book to non Windows based platforms. On the language side of the manual reading about “NIC cards” p 381 Encase manual and “RAM memory” p 381 Encase manual are the sorts of issues that make people wonder if they are reading another book about “the Windows” which undermines a persons faith in ECF’s recommendations. A downloaded or copied folder that contained a thumbs.db file could inadvertently conceal artifacts from files that had previously been deleted, prior to transmission from someone other than the accused.

I believe we are entering into a new age of government surveillance the likes of which mimic and carry the same danger as the thought crimes of George Orwell’s 1984. With so many law enforcement agencies now operating in America, the competition, and existence justification for funding are always exerting pressure onto administrators, and high ups. Like the War On Drugs was yet another attempt to convince the public that Law Enforcement are doing a good job and worthy of the taxes you pay to keep them around without taking into consideration how utterly corrupt all law enforcement really is. Immigration agents forging documents and robbing drug dealers. TSA employees caught with child porn. Those are just a few of the crimes perpetrated by Department of Homeland Security employees in just the past year. According to a newly released DHS inspector general’s summary of its significant investigations there were 318 DHS employees and contractors were arrested in 2011 . Other corruption cases, some appalling; others involve petty greed. The appalling includes at least two employees, one from CBP and another from the TSA who were caught in possession of child pornography.(41) In the fictional language of the novel Nineteen Eighty Four, written by George Orwell controlled language is created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace. Any form of thought secondary to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”. Newspeak is also mentioned to remove all shades of meaning from language, leaving simple concepts of pleasure and pain, happiness and sadness, goodthink and crimethink that reinforce the total dominance of the State. 

The free flow of information has caused more citizens to be informed on issues around the world people are now being exposed to ideas that they would not have otherwise come in contact with. People can now have their talents realized on YouTube when they may have never gotten airtime from a more mainstream form of media. 

CP law states that “any visual depiction, including any photograph, film” or video may be subject to the crime of possessing child pornography and on the face of it seems reasonable enough, because in order to create CP in those mediums would actually require the exploitation of children; However, the law goes on to say, or computer generated image or picture, whether made or produced by electronic, mechanical, or other means of sexually explicit conduct, where as the production of such visualisations depicted involves the use of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. In other words it is not just a crime to involve children in sexually explicit acts for the sake of photography but to even own photography of such abuse is also a crime even if one draw a picture of it. The huge difference is this essentially bridges the gap between an illegal crime and an illegal thought. The law seemingly well meaning is an exemplification of our government’s incessant progress to control how we think and if we don’t get too peeved about debating the law that involves child porn is because most of us would never draw child porn to begin with. This principal is very important, because what this says is “we agree that this kind of thought is wrong and so it should therefore be illegal.” but in reality, depicting children engaged in sex acts is no different than depicting a man killing another man. The acts are both felonies but we dont concent to the latter and in both acts a person’s freedom is taken away by force from another person so why must we make the distinction between murder and CP? If someone were to draw some kids diddling each others ding dongs; they would be committing a crime and if it were politically advantageous for more government control over a persons ability to draw an abuse this person would be thrown in jail even though no child was harmed in the process of creating or drawing the depiction. What exactly is the government is making criminal? I debate that there should be no penalties at all and it is not the child porn I support. Simply making the distinction that while I find real child pornography disgusting in its taste and detriment to children, I disagree with the Government’s assertion that it should be illegal to imagine and depict such a thing is wrong. Perhaps it is gross but certainly imagining and drawing such a thing does not actually hurt or take away the rights of another. Isn’t that is what freedom is all about; being able to do and think as you wish so long as it does not impose force or harm on another. A drawing is just a drawing; a thought and nothing more and as more of our anonymity is eliminated online even more of our information and internet history is being written permanently to “the cloud,”. I visualize a government that literally has the method and legislation to read our thoughts and use them against us to further their own political and oppressive agendas. People seem to be incessantly lulled into this false sense of security and ambivalance by thinking the government would never do that to us where we actually believe that our leaders have our best interest at heart. If you manage to open your eyes and minds to the fact that George Owell’s thought crime are upon us you begin to see the government making moves towards that end at a very fast clip.

The FBI said it mistakenly shut down 84,000 websites but how you mistakenly shut down 84,000 websites and if you have the power to do so you have the power and software to completle eliminate CP altogether. Where is the big red switch on the wall attached to 84,000 websites where someone at the homeland security office building slipped on a banana peal and pulled the switch is insulting to say the least.

As internet technology becomes more unified, and widespread consumers become more dependent on it this allows the traditional ways of developing a fascist state like the merger of corporate and state entities such as NCMEC which can force us to submit private information to the government via search and sezure. Industry leaders have already made their vision very clear in TV and radio comercials where in the future they everyone has a portable device and this device will replace all of our computers. We will have enough processing power to power our movies, internet, TV, music, books, and medical records and it can act as a credit card by letting people swipe their phone at a cash register to pay for goods it is even used as a walkie talkie that knows where you are, where you have been and where you are going. I see that coming a day when government has such a consolidation of our daily self, citizens themselves could be switched off similar to a game save file; and left powerless to purchase goods, communicate with family, friends, or colleagues, access bank information or connect with the extended world. If you remember the Telescreen from the book 1984 and just think how kewl it was the first time you streamed youtube to your cellphone and if we are to remain a country that values the freedom we gained with the internet revolution and all of its political and economic promise don’t you think we ought to be proactive in denying any government body to regulate the companies that brought us this innovation including CP. We must also, at every turn, defend the right to think and express ourselves and this includes the thought that even the majority of people would agree is disagreeable like CP. Regulation is a euphemism for power, and as soon as the regulatory grip is placed on the internet the same way it has on our banking system, you can kiss much more than your flame wars goodbye. Here is the irony the same people writing CP laws are themselves being arrested such as the following. Republican U.S. Justice Department official John David R. Atchison, 53, an assistant U.S. attorney from the northern district of Florida, has been arrested on suspicion of traveling to Detroit over the weekend to have sex with a 5 year old child. An undercover officer posed as a mother offering her child to Atchison for sex, according to police. In deposition, detectives said Atchison suggested the mother tell her daughter that “you found her a sweet boyfriend who will bring her presents.” The undercover detective expressed concern about physical injury to the 5-year-old girl as a result of the sexual activity. Detectives said Atchison responded, ” I am always gentle and loving; not to worry, no damage ever, no rough stuff ever. I only like it soft and nice.” The undercover detective asked how Atchison can be certain of no injury. He responded, “Just gotta go slow and very easy. I’ve done it plenty,” according to detectives.
