Letter - Federal government could reduce child porn

Advertisement

Now after we have spent a lot of ink and space getting righteous justice against a former lawyer and judge in the Junke case, has anyone thought about the lack of logic in that law? He viewed and stored verboten images on his computer and was discovered.

Suppose the Legislature, in its infinite wisdom, decided to tackle the problem of drug abuse in the same fashion. Everyone caught using an illegal substance would be tried and jailed. We would be building massive new correctional facilities and the drug manufacturers and dealers would be rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Instead, to fight drugs, we decided to pursue the sources rather than the end users. Would it be possible to locate and identify the sources of the illegal images and shut them down?

Apparently certain websites are involved as well as filming locations. Would it be possible for a U.S. Attorney General with the credentials of Eric Holder to seek these sources and stop the problem before it became accessible?

He didn’t hesitate to send automatic weapons to Mexico to smoke out the bad guys. And the NSA has been monitoring every email, website, phone call and text message for some time now. How about a slight adjustment in the filtering system to cover the child-porn industry.

High fives would be appropriate when one of Obama’s drones destroyed such an installation. Forget about any collateral damage.

Eric Holder is the most inept and weak-kneed Attorney General since the rise and fall of Janet Reno. Adding to your list the Attorney General is to busy defending the SEIU, setting up capitalistic ventures to fail, try to dictate to religious entities, etc . . . . etc . . . . .

Almost forgot - helping the President destroy the Constitution!

If your looking to hookup it won't be in this lifetime or your next - try match.com or one of those sites where you could find someone that would try to find you interesting! You interesting is a joke in itself.

namvet60 - you need to read 18 U.S.C. (that's U.S. Code) Section 2251 et seq. The penalties for making, selling, transporting, etc. child porn are tough. Unfortunately, a lot of it is made outside of the U.S.

I agree and understand that a majority of the countries where they produce this garbage don't have any laws or age limits to be able to pursue them. But as the letter writer indicated that the NSA has the technology in monitoring billions of transmissions a day so when they are checking this correspondence they should be able to pull and lose or hold for discretionary purposes. They are doing some funny things right now that we don't know about so one more little happenstance most certainly wouldn't bother anyone except the recipient of the illegal correspondence.
