Child Porn Site Busted With 14 Arrests

Child Porn Site Busted With 14 Arrests
Videos of more than 250 children all exploited through a child pornography website will finally be taken down after police arrested the site's creator and 13 others.

A multi-agency investigation was described by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency - or ICE - as the "largest online child exploitation investigation" in its history.

"These alleged perpetrators preyed upon the most innocent and vulnerable of our society with no regard for the immediate or lasting harm they caused the victims and their families." (Via KDAF)

To give a better idea of how big this website was, investigators say it had more than 27,000 subscribers from all across the globe and 2,000 different videos featuring 251 different children ranging in age from 17 to just 3 years old.

Investigators say one of the more disturbing details to the case is that most of the children featured on the horrific site had no idea they were on it.

"Many of the victims were not aware they were even exploited and that their images were being recorded and subsequently shared by predators globally." (Via KXAS)

Officials called this man the ringleader of the child porn website. They say Jonathan Johnson confessed to creating fake female online profiles to convince boys to make sexually explicit videos. If convicted, Johnson faces 20 years to life in prison. (Via WUSA)

Daniel Ragsdale, the deputy director of ICE, says this bust is a big deal. But he added, "we cannot arrest our way out of this problem: education is the key to prevention." (Via Flickr / CPB Photography)

Many years ago I got a few porn site E-mails because my spam detection was set too low. I made the ultimate mistake of opening them to send an E-mail to remove my E-mail address from their records or repling to the E-mails to remove me.

Good grief! I got flooded with the nasty things, anywhere from 30 to 100 a day. Got help from a friend who reset my spam detection, but because I had opened the E-mails I had to go in manually and put their addresses onto a "blocking" list in my spam detection. It took months before I quit receiving them.

Hot tip! NEVER open one of those E-mails to try to get your E-mail address removed!

Sick / weird minds belong in prison or a cemetery , away from vulnerable society.

Anybody that gets off watching young kids or teenagers having sex, is a sick individual and needs help one way or the other. By other, I mean beating them within a inch of their life. I still regret not turning that sick S.O.B. in on my other post. But thinking that I might get dragged in also, because it was my own personal computer I didn't need the hassle.

This is terrible and he should be hanged in my opinion ..but if they want to truly be concerned about children of the world ,then Why aren't the Feds raising hell about the the new law our Muslim friends are trying to get past where Muslim men will be allowed to have sex with girls as young as five and marry them at age nine..this is just as despicable..but we stay silent...

Alcatraz is empty and can be the host to the viewers and the preformers, there is no difference in guilt.

I'd be fine with execution. Their complete disregard for others coupled with a finacial, as well as sexual, motivation telss us all we need to know. They are a severe danger to kids everywhere.

What I wonder is how do these people who use such sites find them? NO, I really don't want to know, but al the same......where the hell does one go to find this? I'd be way too scared of being caught to even venture towards finding this stuff. And now we need to make others scared of it....by executing the people who put up this site.
