A few weeks ago, I read the story about a national sting that netted 125 perverts in a child-porn case.
"I'm the father of four young children between the ages of 13 and 3," [U.S. Attorney Christopher] Christie said. "This is every parent's worst nightmare. It is just deeply disturbing to know there are people like this out there in our neighborhoods."Out of courtesy to the "voice of reason," I'll include this line from the story:
Several of those arrested nationwide have prior records for molesting or sexually assaulting children, officials said.Several. Not most or many of the 125, just several.
Still, it seems like we often are hearing or reading about sexual predators, child porn and other sick society stuff. Was this "stuff" as prevalent 10, 20 or 50 years ago? If alive 75 years ago, would these people still be participating and/or watching these deviant activities?
Or, is the opportunity to view this perversion on the Internet bringing it out from the evil bowels of their souls?
