Porn ring busted
Friday, June 6, 2008

THREE Far Northern men have been charged in one of Australia's biggest child pornography investigations.

They were arrested as part of Operation Centurion, which involves 170 countries and has led to the identification of 1500 suspects in Australia.

A Fishery Falls farmer, 52, was charged with more than 20 offences, including downloading and possessing child porn, after police raided his home on May 16. He also is facing weapons charges.

A Mareeba taxi driver, 32, was charged with 14 counts of possessing child exploitation material and will appear in Atherton Magistrates’ Court on July 9.

A Redlynch man, 56, was charged with two child porn offences after his home was searched on May 20.

They were among 40 Queenslanders arrested so far in the operation, which also has led to the seizure of more than 100,000 images.

Queensland police yesterday said the number of arrests was expected to double as more raids and interviews were conducted over the next week.

Police Minister Judy Spence said those charged included four teachers and six Blue Card-holders, all of whom had been suspended from their jobs.

The investigation is part of an international Interpol-led probe that involved 170 countries.

It began after a hacker posted 99 child porn images on a European website which attracted 12 million hits from 150,000 computer users in just 76 hours.

AFP Commissioner Mick Keelty said officers had put 13,000 hours into the operation.

"The images accessed on these sites are of real children being abused," he said. "It is a shocking thing."

Some Australian children have had to be taken from their homes to protect them from suspects, but police say this had not happened in Queensland.

What can you say?

If theres a sick, disgusting, morbidly fucked up activity that humans wont engage in, it's only because we don't yet know about it.

I think as long as you're going to hang these fucking misfits, you might as well wipe out the rest of us too. That's the only way to keep it from happening ever again. As far as I'm concerned, we're all fucking scum, and our societies are as much to blame as the criminals we like to think we're better than.

Um.. that's taking it a bit too far, don't you think?

I'm curious to know why you think society is to blame for child pornography.

If there's a less invasive cure for abhorent human behavior than mass extinction, I have yet to hear about it. So far as I can tell, as long as there have been humans, there have been horrible mistreatments and acts of evil.

By the very fact that we have societies at all. (social groups where we interact with one another) If not for those, humans could just be disgusting scumbags by themselves and not hurt others.

Dont misread me, I'm not saying that I'm in favor of anarchy and the eradication of society as a whole.(That would mean huge sacrifice on my part, and I'm as self serving as the rest of you) Just saying the only way you're ever going to eliminate problems like child porn and fucked up shit like that is to kill us off entirely or keep us away from one another.

In short...my opinion of the human race gets slightly worse everytime I read or see another example like the one in the thread starting post.

3 out of every 5 women in the United States has been either raped or sexually assaulted at least once in their lives. Now unless there's one REALLY busy motherfucker out there running around and raping everyone in sight, it's safe to say there's more than one dude doing all this raping.

So how many men become rapists? 1 in 10? Funny they never come out with that figure. I'll bet it's fucking higher than you would like to think it is. And whatever this figure is...I'm sure it hasn't recently changed drastically. I'm sure the same number of rapists were just as prevalent as when our societies were being formed.

Garbage in---garbage out. Sorry. I love you and my family and close freinds as much as anyone else could. But it's a good thing I'm not a member of a galactic jury to decide our value. Because honestly...I see tragedies and acts of evil a hell of alot more often then I see acts of sacrifice and love of the same level.

True enough, there always has been and always will be acts of evil. Sure, there is no preventive cure for these acts.

Still, your statement of, "I think as long as you're going to hang these fucking misfits, you might as well wipe out the rest of us too" seems kinda odd. I mean, it seems to me that while crimes like these are unfortunately not totally uncommon, I don't send my kid to school each day in fear that he's going to be victim to some malicious crime. Things aren't so bad off that we are reduced to cowering in our homes just yet.

I doubt that. I'm sure there are just as many sickos that don't interact with others unnecessarily that go out and commit crimes. I guess it's hard to imagine what you mean, though. Without human interaction, we wouldn't really exist, would we? I mean, it's kinda hard to reproduce without the sexings.

Dont misread me, I'm not saying that I'm in favor of anarchy and the eradication of society as a whole.(That would mean huge sacrifice on my part, and I'm as self serving as the rest of you) Just saying the only way you're ever going to eliminate problems like child porn and fucked up shit like that is to kill us off entirely or keep us away from one another.
Gotcha. I guess I must have. Like I said, you DID state, "I think as long as you're going to hang these fucking misfits, you might as well wipe out the rest of us too."

I get that. The news can be pretty depressing. I try not to take stories like these as a reflection of our society as a whole. I mean, it's horrible stuff to hear/read about, but try to take into consideration that for every act like this, there are dozens of good things that happen every day that just aren't newsworthy in the media's eyes.

Take day-to-day life for example. You can either dwell on the bullshit that tries to suck the life out of you, or try to enjoy the things that make life worth living.
