    VA - Grad student/teacher arrested for 90,000 child porn images of babies & toddlers

    http://www.post-trib.com/news/207945...on0303.article

    Complaint says man's child porn images depict kids under 5

    Federal agents track VU grad student via social networking sites


    "Some of the 90,000 child pornography images a Valparaiso University graduate student is accused of owning depict children 5 and younger, including a baby who looks to be about 4 months old, according to a criminal complaint.

    The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Hammond details how the FBI first started investigating Michael Wilson, 26, in October 2007 when a conviction of an Illinois man for child pornography turned up Wilson's online name.

    The man, who wasn't named in the complaint, had an account with the Web site Hello.com, which allows users to share files with other users. The man told police it was likely he had traded images of child pornography with anyone listed as his friend on Hello.com.

    That list included the screen name Wilson49332, which police traced back to an account owned by Wilson, who also has worked at a Merrillville business helping autistic children and as a substitute teacher at three local school districts....."

    "So many kids just need some TLC and some adult support, and I feel as though I have been given a gift to give these kids what they need," he writes on his site.

    Sounds like a pervert to me.

    Parents whose kids have been anywhere near this scum must be freaking out!!
    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.

    ITA with the statement, "So many kids just need some TLC and some adult support...". However, I DON'T agree that that TLC involves molestation, rape, mind control and participation in child porn!!!!

    Mr. Wilson and I possess extremely different views of what children need. Odd, my techniques don't get me arrested.

    First of all, this guy disgusts me.

    But secondly, let's do some math here. The U.S. Attorney's office said he had 90,000 images of child pornography. Even if he had 50 images of each child (doubtful), that means that in this case ALONE, 1800 children were victims of sexual abuse. I seriously doubt that each child had 50 pictures, so I'm convinced that the number of victims is actually much higher.

    How scary is that? To have 90,000 images in this case alone?!?

    And I will never, never, never understand what motivates someone to sexually abuse a child. A 4 month old baby??? That is disgusting and beyond disturbing.

    This really makes me want to go undercover on hello.com and see if I can catch some of these other pervs. I can't believe they just pass this stuff along to each other like it's nothing.

    I'd better stop here before I start using a lot of 4 letter words and get myself put on a TO.

    I'll I can say it that while the internet gives these freaks more accessibility (ugh) it also allows for catching more than one at a time. And that's a good thing. Investigators can trace the trail, which they have done in several cases now and bust lots of these guys in one investigation.

    This is horrendous! Maybe we need stronger sentencing laws or a public service awareness campaign? I don't know, but I sure don't understand why these freaks think the way they do about child porn and it seems like there is SOOOOOO much of this? Thousands and thousands of images floating around - it is heartbreaking.

    Absolutely disgusting! I agree, it also makes part of me want to go undercover on that site...but to be honest, hearing about this stuff happening is disturbing enough, I don't think I would be able to stomach seeing any images

    IMHO the internet just eggs these perverts on. They have to find victims in order to share with others. Each and every person who has kiddie porn on their computer should be arrested. Someone is out there taking the pictures (and I cant imagine what they are, as I dare not even look). Where are the parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, friends, while this is going on. I'm ALL for internet regulation. Where we're moving (a small place), the internet provider actually monitors what comes thru on his servers. If you are found to be abusing his service, or dare to send out kiddie porn. Guess what, you'll see LE knocking on your door.

    Now my husband is against it, but he likes to share files from England (such as the television show Eastenders). He's also a (cough, cough, Torrent user). Downloading movies is a definite no no (unless you pay for them).

    Why isn't anyone monitoring these kiddie porn sites and taking them down?

    ITA Salem, the internet is both tempting to pedophiles and a tool to catch them. I wish someone would do a thorough empirical study on whether porn trading has gone up in the last 20 years. We know it must have. It used to take quite a bit of work to drive to a city, find an adult book shop who kept child porn under the counter, and purchase it. If one could get their hands on an actual magazine with addresses, it still took time and energy and big bucks to mail away for this garbage. Now it takes mere seconds and much of it is free. Almost everyone has the tools to make it (the internet, a web camera, and the kids) in their own home or neighborhood.

    Same goes with "sexting". Kids have been writing dirty notes to each other and passing them around forever. However, I'll bet it would have been quite difficult to photograph, develop, and pass around naked pics of a cute 14 year old boy or girl years ago. Lot of steps involved where one might get caught. Now, we put the instrument of sexting right into the youngster's hand. And we wonder why they do it?

    Because they can......and they are young and stupid and have no concept of the consequences of their actions.

    90,000!! 90 FREAKING THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I dont have 90,000 pics of my family!!!!
    I cant begin to fathom the 'dedication' it took for him to hunt down & collect 90,000 filthy ,obscene images of child exploitation & rape.
    This man is an obsessed,compulsive filthy pig & there is no help or cure for him.
    The saints are the sinners who keep trying...

    So, conservatively, we're talking about thousands of babies and toddlers....stripped of their dignity and innocence and mercilessly abused for perverted pleasure and profit.

    Where are they?

    I like to read back over articles to see if I've missed anything. I did.

    http://www.post-trib.com/news/207945...on0303.article

    "....The complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Hammond details how the FBI first started investigating Michael Wilson, 26, in October 2007 when a conviction of an Illinois man for child pornography turned up Wilson's online name."

    I'd like to know just how many babies were tortured in the months between October 2007 and March 2010? That's a lot of downloads.....and a lot of babies.


    and this:

    "According to his LinkedIn profile and a Web site listing his resume, Wilson was born and raised in Michigan before moving to Louisville to attend the University of Kentucky, where he received a bachelor of arts in psychology.

    He also received a master's of school social work from the University of Louisville, a master's of education in special education from Michigan State University and started at Valparaiso University last fall for an educational specialist in school psychology. He also has worked as a social worker and substitute teacher at other places as early as 2006...."


    Once again, we encounter a monster who is absolutely dedicated to years of education prepping him for having unlimited access to possibly highly vulnerable victims--special needs students. Didn't he hear that it wasn't working out too well for the Blankenburg twins or Dr. Bradley?
