Canada arrests dozens on child porn charges

Canada arrests dozens on child porn charges.

I’m glad this is happening.  Kiddy porn is rampant on the internet.  The hard part is not going to be tracking down the folks who are stupid enough to leave a credit card number on a website, unfortunately.  Law enforcement is going to have to find a way to shut down the child porn trade on the newsgroups, the Gnutella network, and instant messaging, all of which allow virtually anonymous access.

On a related note, the arrest of Pete Townshend was hard to take.  I, personally, hope the guy is innocent of the worst of the charges.  It’s clear he’s guilty of paying for the stuff, but I hope the reasons are as he says — a single episode “research project”.  If it’s more, that will be a very sad thing, indeed.  Even so, a judge is giong to have to administer some kind of penalty.  Let’s just hope he’s deserving of a lesser penalty, and not a pedophile.
