Since I stopped actively Blogging about a year ago, much has changed and much has stayed the same. Military Veteran, Charles Stephano, is still incarcerated in a Puerto Rican Jail for an indeterminate term. (That’s two years in jail without ever having been sentenced.) Now we are not talking about terrorists in Guantanamo, we are discussing a native born American Veteran who never touched another human but was hit by porn loaders on the Internet.
The one thing which has changed is that young-models. org is down off the net and intercage.com is no longer engaged in criminal activity. It would seem that in the waning days of the Bush Administration some of the truly nasty crap was taken off line (or maybe the code for the pornloader became so well known that the technology became obsolete).
It is still easy to Google for kiddie porn by just inserting the following in the search bar:
Your search will take you to a bunch of sites like
http://www.kiddieporn.com/cgi-bin/ucj/etc. (not an actual site)
Take off the garbage at the end and visit the site home page i.e.
For each page of results, you will find at least one site with enough kiddie porn to send you to jail. (usually about one site per page of results)
The sad part is that Google could easily block this search and make access to kiddie porn a little more difficult.
A spot check shows that there are still plenty of Kiddie porn sites on line and only users of this crap are going to jail. Web Hosting Companies and backbone carriers operate with immunity. Well even if the government is not working to take down kiddie porn, the economic community seems to be rejecting the wages of sin. When I first mentioned Level 3, a carrier and host of kiddie porn, the stock was valued at $6.38. Last week the stock was 70 cents and it’s been as low as 57 cents.
So the more things change the more they stay the same.
