    KS - Agents race to save girl had one blurred clue

    Hi, A CNN article/video was just posted featuring my program at HSI. Several stories concerning our John and Jane DOE cases have been posted here at Websleuths and I figured there would be some interest.

    The story can be found now on the front page of cnn.com or by going to this link:

    Thanks,

    Jim

    Hi Jim and welcome to WS! Congrats for making the save. And thank you for the work you do.

    I know it isn't easy, and you probably don't get many thanks for the work you do and the horrors you see. But you do a job that is very needed and though you may not know it, many people do see and give thanks for the work you do.

    You and your colleagues are heroes in my mind.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Thanks Jim for posting your story here. I actually read it on CNN before I saw it posted here on this site.

    I live in KS and thought wow this could be close to where I live and wasn't even aware of it. I don't think I have noticed KS rode's being marked with a sunflower sign before. They may be and I am just not an observant driver.

    Thanks for your very insightful story and keep up the great work. Glad you are helping young children from these monsters out there.

    Such an uplifting story! It's great to hear that sometimes these precious little darlings can be saved before the worst can happen.

    Excellent work! Thank you so much for sharing, Jim.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the welcomes and reaction to the story. The CNN story tells of just one specific case (our first one after starting the program). There is a great international collaborative effort to conduct victim identification efforts like what you see in the video. I owe a great debt of gratitude to many of those international partners, our HSI offices and state and local partners.

    With the hundreds of children you and your people have saved and almost 1000 pedos no longer free to exploit other children, 'thanks' hardly seems enough.

    Jim - if it's alright, could you offer us your point of view on how large the child porn industry actually is, in terms of numbers of offenders out there?

    And, assuming from the sheer volume of busts that have occurred in the past ten years - why there's so many pedophiles these days? Or have there always been that many, but the internet and increased number of arrests just makes them more visible now?

    While I'm beyond glad every time I hear of another child porn ring busted, it also scares me to wonder how big this 'industry' actually might be.
