You seem to think this is some sort of victimless crime. If there was not a market for kiddie porn, these children would not be abused and taken advantage of in order to produce it. I would guess that these perverts are paying for the porn. The consumer of child pornography is just as guilty of sexual abuse of children as the one who produced the filth to begin with.
Oh bullsh t. Pedophiles don't do it for profit, they do it for fun. That they can profit from it is only icing on the cake.

Does looking at photos of Nazi death camps make you guilty of genocide? Does looking at photos of a KKK lynching make you a racist? What about the incredible amount of violence delivered into most homes daily via television?

So you'd rather ICE catch a guy who only looks at kid porn on his computer (doesn't make it or abuse anyone) rather than a BUNCH of illegals that are raping the system, killing people, running drugs, driving around without insurance, and committing a whole host of other attrocities?
Hmmm... so the witch hunt continues I guess. I'm no fan of people who watch kiddie porn, but unless the guy is actually making the porn I am not willing to throw away his whole life for such a transgression.
Some of you really seem to be overcompensating for some deep seated emotional problem of your own. You know, like the way closet gays often act overly homophobic...
Guess you never heard of supply and demand? If sickos like him weren't willing to watch, well, then they videos wouldn't be made.

THAT SIMPLE.

The difference between those types of pictures, is if I am looking at a nazi camp photo I am not getting my jollies off.

Child pervs need to either chemically casterate themselves so they do not hurt children or kill themselves.

I'm sure the dead Jews at Auschwitz really appreciate that difference.

Sorry, but I have to disagree. The business of child porn is huge if all the reports are to be believed. And as a business, I am sure there are people out there who produce it strictly for the profit. Therefore, if it weren’t for the demand, the supply wouldn’t be necessary.

Also, while looking at the photos of Nazi death camps and KKK lynching’s does not make you guilty, the intention is the difference. Personally, I am fascinated by the violence we as humans can inflict on one another. It amazes and disgusts me at the same time. But I do not study that behavior because I get some sick pleasure from it – unlike the individual getting off on child porn.

How can it be that people who view child porn don't see that the children are victims? If someone you know sends child porn to you, have the guts to tell them you never want to see anything like that again. You can make a difference.

Now that ICE has the borders completely secured and have plenty of agents stations at all points to prevent illegal immigration, I guess they can take care of this sort of thing in their spare time.

I'm gonna bet that Wonka isn't a parent.....then your opinion might be different. Sure, a life has ended tragically, but, if it was your kid in danger with these types of people out in society you might think differently.....one less to worry about as far as I'm concerned.

BLACKS are FOUR TIMES MORE LIKELY TO MOLEST CHILDREN THAN WHITES
Yes, as with all violent/sexual crimes, BLACKS ARE MORE LIKELY TO DO SO than any other race
Per CASA, the advocacy group for children in our court system, BLACKS, who are just 12% of the population are actually 35% of CHILD MOLESTERS
Whites are 70% of the US population even if whites were 70% of child molesters, it would mean NOTHING. Whites are not even 70% of child molesters but ONLY 40%,
Blacks almost outnumber whites as child molesters even though whites outnumber blacks SIX to one
So if I walk down your street, I must be guilty of "walking while black"? Idiot!

they say this sexual attraction to children is not something controlable. man what a curse. really, if you were born like that you might as well commit suicide. there's just no way out. how depressing. it's sick and wrong and you have no choice.
Where did you get that information? In many cases, sexual offenders/predators were victims THEMSELVES when they were young, thus they act out as their abusers did to them. It's a vicious cycle, but there are those who can rise out of it.

You and some of the other idiots on here need to do some research and educate yourself before you post so you don't sound so ignorant. It was ICE, not INS. Cyber crimes and federal child exploitation statutes fall under the domain of ICE, so this is EXACTLY what they're supposed to be doing. There are specialized units in ICE who do nothing but this sort of thing, including computer forensics, the Cyber Crimes Center, and Operation Predator.

There are also other divisions within ICE that handle the myriad other specialized duties for which ICE is responsible but which have nothing to do with this sort of crime. One does not take away from the other. I understand that you apparently can't comprehend how the second largest investigative agency in the federal government can actually do more than one thing at a time, but they can.

But then again, the knee-jerk criticism that typically goes on here on these threads is really more about personal psychology than reality, so please, carry on with your dazzling display of ignorance.

The overwhelming majority of people who sexually offend against children are KNOWN to the victim. It's an uncle, a neighbor or, sadly, even a father or mother.

This myth about guys watching child porn and then running out to accost children on the street is simply not true. It's a weird habit done in private but does not result in attacks on children.

Talk to professionals who work with these cases. 9 times out of 10 the perp is known to the victim. That's the first thing the assailant has to establish...trust.

Educate yourself...

"Innocent Until Proven Guilty
First, it should be pointed out that if you did it, you're guilty, no matter what. So you're not innocent unless you're truly innocent. However, our system presumes innocence, which means that legally speaking, even the obviously guilty are treated as though they are innocent, until they are proven otherwise.
The concept of the presumption of innocence is one of the most basic in our system of justice. However, in so many words, it is not codified in the text of the Constitution. This basic right comes to us, like many things, from English jurisprudence, and has been a part of that system for so long, that it is considered common law. The concept is embodied in several provisions of the Constitution, however, such as the right to remain silent and the right to a jury."

Innocent people of all ages and of all backgrounds fall to suicide when they feel they have no where left to turn - because they have been slandered, ridiculed and/or bullied. There are MANY cases were those who were suspects or accused were later proven to be innocent. However, because of the media, slander, false-accusations, the "rule of the mob", and small minded people who can't wait to actual cold hard facts even after they are proven innocent - some people feel there is no where safe left for them.

Maybe you need to think about your accusations before so easily point the blame and think if you were falsely accused, suspected or blamed before anyone allowed you to clear your name. And not just a small offense. Put YOURSELF in the place of another person. Things are not so black and white as you want to believe. It's often easier to believe a lie - it takes no work, time, faith or patience.
