    Man caught with 'thousands' of child porn pictures

    Fort Worth Police are calling it the biggest case of child pornography that they've ever seen.

    The trail of evidence dates back 20 years.

    Investigators describe him as a collector and a trader of child pornography.

    Ricky Meuir, 43, was arrested Friday afternoon for a felony charge of promotion of child pornography.

    ~much more at link, including his father saying he is a good kid~

    "He classifies that stuff with adult pornography. He didn't know it was illegal."

    The excuses these families make on behalf of these perverts! What is wrong with them?!?! How could someone NOT know that child porn is different from adult porn?!?!

    "But now investigators are working to find out who these children are. They say there are at least a thousand different faces. ":(

    I almost gagged when I read that. They should torture him into revealing who he may have shared these disgusting things with and if he knows any of the children. Then shoot him. Between the eyes. Dump him in a pit of acid. These pieces of crap deserve nothing better. And we need innocent soil to grow lovely things.

    It may be impossible to ID many of the faces. Since the photos date back so far, many would now adults.

    I have to say honestly, I would not want to know if any of those horrible photos are still floating around of me. It's traumatic enough to vaguely remember what happened, it's another whole traumatic experience to consider the pictures are still out there.

    I don't know why I even read the thread, I knew it was going to upset me, sorry

    I have to agree if there were, and there is not, I would be very upset if it were to come up again. To think I was made to be a victim over and over again with out my knowledge.

    And to know that my little girl dirty pictures were still being passed around on the internet. I would just be horrified. I understand why LE want to find out who the little kids are...many probably didn't even get counseling. Way back when it sexual abuse wasn't even talked about much less counseled. What a terrible thing to happen to all of these little kids. All of their lives are probably so screwed up if they didn't get any help.

    I can't get over his father saying he is a good kid. He's 43! Surely he knew better.

    No wonder he is a loner, he must spend a lot of time looking at his collection.

    Too bad there is not some way like crimestoppers or some other confidential trustworthy means, that people could come forward and either identify themselves or others identify them. I suppose it could lead to misuse of the information, but as you've said there is no way to figure out how old photos are or even where they originated.

    I wonder how many of these children could be possibly missing. This is so sickening. I hope they can find some of them.

    I wonder how many of the 1,000's of faces they've identified by now. :(

    We probably will never know since it is such a horrible thing for these kids (and now adults) to face.
    I hope they have found and helped some of the victims.

    Imnsho, it's the ostrich effect and the elitist, albeit rather ignorant, view that these kinds of things only occur in 3rd world countries&#151;even though our very own USDOJ statistics indicate that child sex slave trafficking is alive and well in the good o'l US of A, and we are in the top ten nations for both child pornography and sex slave trafficking. Which, again, imnsho, go hand in hand.

    Hoping Steve H is feeling better. He had alot of information on Ricky "Fun Boy" Meuir. He linked him to that social network "Multiply" that had all those freaks on it. It's disturbing. Hopefully LE caught a few of them perverts from there too.

    Hey, does anyone remember what recent thread it was where someone found (while googling) some sick ad about sex with the infants head? That last link (projectsafechildhood) should be given to that poster...but I can't remember who started that thread or what the topic was.
