    The FBI Ran a Child Porn Site for Two Whole Weeks


    Jamie Condliffe 5/29/13 6:28am 116,150 217
    Last November, the FBI raided a bulletin board-style site that was known to be a home of child pornography. But rather than shutting it down, they decided to keep it running—and see just how many users they could identify.
    The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Bureau agents posed as child porn dealers, actively distributing pornography while the site was under their control—just as other agencies perform sting operations with drugs and prostitution.
    It's not yet clear if the technique worked that well: in the two week period, the FBI attempted to identify 5,600 users who had shared over 10,000 images of children, but s0 far it's only known that one suspect's computers have been seized. Still, it might be too early to judge. The investigation is still, apparently, in its early stages and, while nobody has yet been prosecuted, charges are believed to be forthcoming.
    What can, perhaps, be judged, is the ethical position of distributing child pornography to incriminate suspects. Is it worse than supplying drugs in a sting? Or is it fair game given the end result? What do you think? [San Francisco Chronicle via Verge]

    It's like selling guns to drug dealers. We know how that turned out.

    Many FBI agents hanging around chat rooms really are 13 year old girls. True Fact!

    I feel sorry for them, can you imagine having to view that disgusting filth for your job. As for the low arrest count, I would guess they are "lurking moar"

    Well I kind of see it like this:

    If you already completed a sting, capturing all of that CP, then you may as well use it. Sure you can delete it, but this is the internet after all, it can never just be deleted.

    The line is where the FBI has to MANUFACTURE their own CP or drugs, that it's crossed. But if they seized it, hey kudos to them to make it look like everything was still legit.

    I think it was a brilliant move.

    If pedos worry that CP sites might be compromised by FBI they will think twice about visiting.

    What the FBI did was DISTRIBUTE CHILD PORN

    Your tax dollars at work.

    to track down others who were committing crimes. And they didn't make this either, it was porn they seized. Calm the fuck down.

    By the laws of the US they are just as much a criminal as those who created the porn. They don't get to break the law in order to enforce it. The notion is absurd.

    What you are saying is it is OK to break the law under some circumstances, but not others. That is the way to a totalitarian government, to a denial of the rule of law. When the rule of law is violated, everyone in that society loses except those exempt from the laws.

    I get that child porn is a horrid thing. But I also get that breaking the law in pursuit of law breakers is a far worse crime, since it destroys the notion of law itself. If the law enforcers can break the laws they are enforcing then the rule of law doesn't exist.

    SO when the FBI run a CP network, they are criminals, pure and simple. They are not exempt from the laws they enforce.
    Let me repeat that:

    Nah,sometimes you got to lay with the devil to find the demons.they are looking for the makers of filth,the sick fucks that deal in lost hope.
  14. JohnnyRUClear Member

    It's OK; we can trust the FBI. We should give them more powers so they can do more things for us. What could possibly go wrong?

    Lol you funny when you're mad.

    If you are put in the Witness protection program, the law essentially gives you free reign to lie to people about who you are. That's the whole point of that program.

    The law has to break some rules if they are to have a chance to capture the criminals.
  21. FloGold Moderator

    Yeah but witness protection and propagating child sexual abuse for any reason at all are HARDLY the same thing.
  22. Howard Hunt Member

    As far as I'm concerned anyone who gets off on cp is a ticking time bomb. They WILL act on their fantasy when they have the opportunity. This is not like shoplifting or trying coke, their mind is corrupted with evil. They are beyond rehabilitation. No mercy should be given. By any means shut them down.

    Let your fear fuel your hate, and let your hate make you strong.

    Unfortunately they can always find ways to justify their actions and that's the scary part. Some of the excuses given by these people are sickening. I am not a violent person but I always hope these sorts of people have a nasty fall on the prison stairs.
  25. EveStropping Member

    Well said.

    This is why.

    Interesting. I was hoping the SW language would evoke the risk inherent in rage-based policymaking, but it seems to have had the opposite effect in this case.

    Perhaps an alternative quote will have more success:

    "What is begun in anger ends in shame."
