    CA - Website 4chan linked to federal child porn probe

    According to NCIS, Machinist’s Mate 2nd Class Collin Campbell admitted to “downloading between 10-20 images of child pornography” that he claimed to have found on **********, the notorious image and message board.

    Surprise, surprise... NOT! 4chan=ick.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Well, who'd have thunk it? It's not like there's anyone that has been reporting child porn from that site for quite sometime (note the sarcasm). I know I've turned them in over and over again, as have other members here and elsewhere. I hope they finally take them down.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    4chan won't go down for this. For one thing the owners of websites aren't criminally liable for child porn that is posted by a user as long as they remove it in a reasonable amount of time, log it and report it. Also 4chan cooperates with the feds when it comes to tracking down child porn and other cyber crimes. From what I have heard when child porn does appear in a thread on 4chan it is usually removed pretty fast. I'm also pretty sure that most of the child porn posted on there is actually the feds trying to sting people. So I think the only person going down for this is going to be the sailor.
