It has gotten to a point where there is such a tsunami of child porn arrests that I simply cannot start a thread on each and every one. How tragic that I've had to raise the bar and be more discerning about who I highlight. I'm looking for those in the helping professions and those linked through circuits to other traders as I believe that these men and women do the most harm to children and families. That said, these guys fit the bill: http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?s...geles&id=8218181&rss=rss-kabc-article-8218181 Santa Monica man busted in national child-pornography ring "A Santa Monica man is headed to prison for his role in an Internet-based child-pornography ring, a group exploiting kids by stealing their photos and trading them...." and "...44-year-old Kevin Wright of Santa Monica was sentenced to seven years in prison. The judge took steps to conceal images of him. Child-porn defendants are often attacked in prison. Wright pleaded guilty to being part of a select group of child-porn traders on an Internet billboard site called Quest4More. "They're collectors. And like a collector of anything, collectibles, it's no fun to collect if you can't share it with someone else..." and "...When one member got busted, an agent assumed his online identity, leading investigators to four other users. "Polls were taken of the members: 'Would you kidnap a child?'; 'Would you sexually exploit a child who's in your bed?'," said Robert Abrams, ICE Child Exploitation Investigations Group. "Very, very graphic activity was described and elaborated upon....." and "....The task force executed search warrants in Los Angeles County arresting scores of people, including a principal, a teacher, a doctor, a lawyer, a scout master, all leading to convictions...." more at link I wonder if we'll ever be able to connect the dots?
