    Canada - Ontario child porn bust snares 35


    Ontario child porn bust snares 35

    The Canadian Press

    A co-ordinated investigation into child pornography in Ontario resulted in charges against 35 people across the province, police announced Wednesday.

    Two child victims, one in the province, the other outside Canada, were "rescued," police said, although they refused to provide details.

    "This is a crime that, to me, is one of the most heinous one human being can commit against another," said Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Julian Fantino.

    "[Police] will stop at nothing to hunt down child predators."

    The charges follow weeks of legwork involving 18 police services that are part of a provincewide initiative to combat child pornography.

    In all, 44 search warrants were executed, leading to 122 child porn and other charges.

    Police said the individuals charged were not part of any ring.

    As representatives from more than a dozen police services across the province looked on, Fantino decried a justice system he said was too soft on child pornographers.

    In particular, he lashed out at the maximum 10-year sentence.

    "You can't in good conscience call that adequate punishment for such a brutal crime," Fantino said

    So these arrests are totally unrelated....not part of a ring? Why does that sound odd? I wonder if this has anything to do with the arrest of Father John Duarte who was the priest from Windsor, Ontario who worked for years running an orphanage in Haiti? He was found to have molested many many boys and fled to the Dominican Republic. He was extradited to Canada to face charges just a few months ago. I've always wondered why he wasn't tried in Haiti. One wonders where the other child "not in Canada" is. Duarte was picked up in Puerto Plata, DR, where Laura Silsby was trying to start her orphanage. This is also where the mysterious Jorge Puello hung out. Puello is a known trafficker and also had strong ties, and I believe and an active warrant, from Canada. Hmmmmm.

    This is especially revolting

    TORONTO - A massive child pornography investigation has led to dozens of arrests across Ontario -- including five people under 18 -- and the identification of two young victims.
    ........................
    The accused, one of whom allegedly had about six million images on his computer, include 30 men from across Ontario. Five are from the GTA -- Toronto, Markham and Ajax.

    The five youths taken into custody include two 15-year-olds, one 16-year-old and two 17-year-olds.

    "It's a particular concern when at such a young age we have ... basically children abusing children," Fantino said.

    "It should be a concern to all of us."

    Fantino said he is also troubled by the amount of weapons that were seized during the sweep.

    Sure sounds like the perv w/ 6 MILLION images had himself a file sharing service going on.
    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.

    Six million images and no trading? Yeah, right. And weapons? Is this becoming a cartel thing? That's terrifying. So where exactly did they get the images? I wish this statement:

    "Unfortunately, most parents are lagging far behind their children in their understanding of web technology."

    could be make into a fridge magnet that every parent had to stick on their fridge and read as a mantra everyday. Are they implying that these guys contacted victims through the internet? Six million images is almost incomprehensible.

    Those children are some place.....where???

    I am shocked that the maximum sentance possible is 10 years! While I am very happy they have caught these perps, I would like to see them in jail for longer than 10 years. It should be per image or offense.

    The population of Ontario Canada is 13 million. That's about one pornographic photo for every other person. I wonder how many children are in Ontario? I wonder how many who haven't been indecently photographed?

    My guess is that more than 35 people have these photos. I also imagine a few of them know each others' screen names.

    Sunnie--Here's an article from this week concerning the push for longer maximum sentences for child porn in Canada:

    http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/torsun/10..._porn__fantino

    "The judicial system needs to get with the times before police can ever hope to stamp out child pornography, says Ontario's top cop.

    While revealing the details in Toronto Wednesday of a massive, province-wide child pornography sweep, OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino also voiced his frustration with laws and sentencing that seems to do little to stop the "heinous" crimes being committed against kids.

    "Every image of a child being abused represents the victimization of a vulnerable person," Fantino said. "Every trading or transmission of that image represents re-victimization of that child...."

    and

    "...Currently, the maximum sentence is 10 years for distributing, making or selling child pornography, he pointed out.

    "You can't in good conscience call that adequate punishment I certainly don't for such a brutal crime," the commissioner added.

    Fantino said he and his colleagues have been trying to draw attention to the issue for about 20 years...."

    O.K. now I'm looking waaaaaaay too much into things here.

    There's presently a CHRIS GURULE of New Mexico under arrest for raping a 4 year old on film. The person who did the photographing is the child's grandmom. I know I got physically sick. I went upstairs and threw up. Sorry to be so graphic.

    Anyway, same name different places. That's weird though. I was swearing this is how the guy in New Mexico got caught. Through file sharing.

    Sorry just wanted to share. Oh and y'all come visit me when I'm in the "sometimers" clinic. Sometimes I remember and sometimes I forget.

    LadyL - there's quite a few threads here on CP busts in Canada...were you thinking a thread in a different forum here @ WS?
    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.
