Operation Sentinel in Camden County, New Jersey netted 18 child porn downloaders this week.
This article reminds me of two things that I bet most people aren’t aware of.
The first is that six juveniles were arrested in this sting. Even if a juvenile is in possession of child porn it’s still child porn. I remember during my early days on the internet back in the late 90’s some AOL kid tried telling me that since he was a teenager he could have naked pics of underage teen girls. Nope, it doesn’t work that way. It also shows that parents are obviously still not keeping an eye on their kids while they’re on the computer.
The second part is that some law enforcement officers involved with these kinds of stings have to actually view the child porn. As the article pointed out…
The downside is that those videos have to be viewed by law enforcement, and written summaries of their contents include words such as “father,” “ejaculate” and “mouths.”
I don’t think I could do it without getting violent on an offender or going insane. Whatever they’re paid it’s not enough.
