anyhow I was in such a shock, and i always looked at the men on here that was into child porn and thought geesh why? how disgusting, glad hes going to jail...etc etc... well when it hits close to home, it seems to change the opinion....so then i started thinking but he was only looking...what harm is that?....anything to lessen the shock of what happened...but then someone explained that ever time that someone looked at one of these pictures that child is being molested over and over again...then I understood...I was even going to bail him out when he was arrested.....but there are small children in my neighborhood and i couldnt really say they would be safe if he stayed with me...so i left him in jail, the DA told me i had done the right think cause i just kept going back and forth....
I am the only one in my family who has anything to do with my brother, everyone else has abandoned him.....I told him, As a mother I hate what you have been charged with, as your sister I want you out of jail...
So what im trying to get at is you may think you can just walk away from your son or close relative, but when it actuall happens its a different story...
my brother is serving 12 years..and i keep in touch with him and i will help him anyway I can but he will never be able to stay with me.
Thank you very much for sharing Wild Rose, I am very sorry about your mom.

Echoing Tlcox I believe I'd do the same and not just for my child, but as with any crime we have to keep people accountable. Otherwise I see it as almost an enabler.

In this guys case imagine the parents. As you mentioned your mom's computer was taken. I have to wonder if these people are even maybe computer literate.

Thanks again for sharing.
