    Canada - Seven kids rescued after child porn investigation (Surrey, B.C)

    A Surrey, B.C., man faces multiple child porn-related charges after an investigation that started with a tip from an international source and ended with the rescue of seven children.

    The 36-year-old accused is charged with sexual assault, invitation to sexual touching, and production, possession and distribution of child pornography.

    RCMP say the investigation began on Jan. 22, when police received a tip from a foreign source who claimed the accused and other individuals from around the world were exchanging images and videos of sexual abuse of children known to them.

    Later that day, police executed a search warrant at a Surrey residence and seized electronic and computer devices.

    The investigation led to the rescue of six area kids and another in Ontario, police said. The children are between five and 11 years old.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    That is so true. I am glad so many children were rescued !
    I am always encouraging people, and here I will do so again, to WATCH their own neighborhood, area, look around when driving, be vigilant, listen, etc. It is not that hard, I hope people get fed up and take charge of their area so less creeps will get away with crimes.

    I wonder where the children came from? Were they kidnapped and reported missing somewhere or were they sold into the child sex slave trade?

    Glad that they are safe and pray for the recovery of their minds and bodies.

    RCMP Cpl. Annie Linteau said there is a ban on naming the accused to protect the identity of the victims.

    She would not comment on whether the kids, who range in age from five to 11, are related to the suspect. “All I can say is that the children are known to him,” Linteau said. “We just cannot identify him to protect the children.”
    ................
    She said the children, one of whom was in Ontario, were saved from future sexual abuse by the swift actions of investigators.

    “They were essentially rescued from sexual abuse. It is not like they were tied up or kidnapped or anything. It was like they were being sexually abused and our intervention basically led to them no longer being abused or being abused further,” Linteau said.
    ...............
    Last fall, an advocacy group released a study that found Canada is one of the leading countries in the world for hosting child-porn sites.

    The report, released by Cybertip.ca, examined more than 15,000 child-porn websites worldwide and found Canada ranked second behind the U.S. in terms of the number of commercial porn sites featuring children. Canada was found to host eight per cent of the sites, far behind the U.S., which hosts 65 per cent of commercial child-porn sites worldwide.

    Another report by the federal ombudsman for victims, titled Every Image, Every Child, said the number of Internet images of “serious child abuse” quadrupled from 2003 to 2007 and that the images are getting more violent and depicting younger and younger children.

    Seven children have been rescued from a sexual exploitation ring, and a Surrey man has been arrested and faces multiple pornography-related charges.

    The 36-year-old man was arrested on an outstanding warrant Thursday afternoon at the Surrey RCMP detachment after Crown prosecutor's office approved charges.

    The accused man appeared in Surrey Provincial Court on Friday.

    He is charged with 10 pornography-related offences, including two counts of sexual assault, three counts of inviting sexual touching from an person under 16, two counts of committing sexual offences while being a person of trust or a person with authority over the victims, one count of possessing child pornography, namely videos and digital photos, one count of selling child pornography and one count of making child pornography.

    ok im sorry if im taking this the wrong way but what the heck is the point of saying something like 'its not like they were tied up or abducted or anything.' oh is that the attitude you folks usually have? no wonder so many kids never get saved if that's the attitude. im assuming here, since they wont release the suspects names, that they are relatives to the victims.

    I agree kbl, there wasn't quite enough emphasis on the sexual abuse the children DID endure--whatever forms it took. I'm pleased they found these kids and got them out of there. I hope more arrests will be forthcoming.

    The RCMP need to get a new spokesperson IMO. That was a highly inappropriate statement from Cpl. Linteau.

    thanks. i'm already agitated tonight so i thought i might be overeacting.......

    that kinda comment says 2 things one) it lessens what these kids went thru simply cause there related to these monsters
    2) it makes it seem like the cops went out of the way to DO THE JOB TAXPAYERS PAY THERE SALARIES FOR.

    The same exact thing went through my head when I read that. It's not you, kbl and it's not Iz. I mean the same thing just shot through my mind.

    You have to wonder if it's the way the press worded it OR worse it was actually said. Verbatim. However ya spell that.

    "Yeah well we were systematically, and continually sexually abused, but hey we weren't tied up or anything. Nobody abducted us. So, ya know it's no biggie". Blatantly minimizing the horrific pain these kids went through.

    God bless those children, I hope that they aren't related to the creep and that they have a strong family support system in place.
    Happy New Years

    In the headings of news articles, "rescued" (in quotes) is how the word appears. I understood what he was saying. The children were not physically found in captivity at the perps. residence.
    He was trying to explain the situation at the time, and it wasn't worded well.

    and the point of that is what? to me it sounds like he's trying to a) lessen what they went to and b) make it look like they went out of they're way to do what they are paid to do.

    They should have focused more on what did happen to the kids, but obviously, they have better victim protection laws than we do. I hate how they minimize abuse that is less physically tolling, but we are a visual society...a lot of people believe that the scars that don't show can't possibly be as bad as the ones that do, and it comes through in journalism, too. Not that it's right, but it happens.

    I am just glad that for once they got the perp and found the victims. Too much of the time, it's one or the other.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.
