Fifty children saved as international paedophile ring busted
2019-05-24
[BBC] Fifty children have been rescued and nine people arrested after an Interpol investigation into an international paedophile ring.

The arrests were made in Thailand, Australia and the US and more are expected, Interpol said.

The investigation began in 2017 and focused on a hidden "dark web" site with 63,000 users worldwide.

Police believe 100 more children have suffered abuse and are working to identify them.

Operation Blackwrist was launched by Interpol after it detected images showing 11 boys aged under 13 being abused on a site where people can use encrypted software to maintain secrecy.

The dark net is an internet area beyond the reach of mainstream search engines.

The US Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) department traced the IP address of the website, which was hosting photos and videos of abuse.

#3  I read a very interesting book on this called Child Hunters. It is a book of case studies over the life of and psychologist. Each case study is tragic, with horrific endings for the kids. To Bright Pebbles point, its a bit more complicated and the levels of abuse on young girls (under 8 years old) is actually higher than boys. It cut through stereotypes and I took two things from it. First not all abused kids become monsters, but all monsters were abused kids, the psychosis is learned-not born. Second, once an abused kid grows up and becomes a monster, it is not reversible, nothing can cure it. Pedophilia has a lot in common with an abusive person, its a learned behavior.

#2  Paedophilia seems linked to homosexuality, unless these were for women (which i doubt)
