37-year-old Lauren Diaz of Orlando, Florida, has been arrested for allegedly producing child porn in her own residence. None of the articles I’ve read state who her victims were, but they do state that her two children are now in custody of the DCF.
Using the username of hmmready79 on mobile messaging app Kik, Diaz allegedly shared 109 child porn files with a Canadian man. The man had been arrested by Canadian authorities for allegedly being in possession of child porn. Police say that during her arrest Diaz reportedly admitted to sending the explicit images to the Canadian man among others.
When your app has become the go to choice for sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn producers you would think that it would be bad PR for the app maker, yet here we are. The Canadian made app is still widely popular and there are few to little signs that Kik is doing anything to stop the infestation of pedophiles on its platform.
It’s way past time that we should start deleting Kik from the phones and tablets of our children.
