In Denmark, Viral Video Sparks Wave Of Child Pornography Prosecutions

[npr.org]

A video that went viral in Denmark three years ago is now the basis for a wave of prosecutions. More than 1,000 young people, many of them teenagers at the time, are now charged with the distribution of child pornography. Sidsel Overgaard reports from Billund, Denmark.

SIDSEL OVERGAARD, BYLINE: The video shows two 15-year-olds engaged in sexual activity at a party in 2015. The two boys who filmed it were prosecuted several years ago, but now, 1,004 young people who shared it on Facebook Messenger face charges that could haunt them for years. One of the defendants is Mira Bech, now 19 years old. She told Denmark’s TV2 that it seemed everyone was sharing the video at the time.

    😀😆🤣😊😄😅 ROFLMAO!
    I feel bad for them, but the law is the law and until more and more people are impacted, nothing will change.
    [Note to U.S. State Department: Be sure to permanently ban all these terribly dangerous child pornographers from ever visiting the U.S.]

      Agreed. The closer to 100% of Americans prosecuted, the closer to the 100% abolishment of stupid laws and stupid registries.

    • Michael

      It does not seem as though any of them would be required as sex offenders, so that is good news for them. Had that been Anytown USA, they’d be screwed.

    We might have another wave of arrest in the USA. Just brace for it.

    The US doesn’t like to be outdone by anyone, so I say woe to those involved in the one out of AL this past week. Toss in Reichsfuhrer Sessions in charge of DOJ, and I’m sure there will be a US Atty or two who pursue charges–besides the ones for AL (and MI), where the guy lives (and lived…and faces other prior charges).

    Notice that it took three years for the Danes to take care of it? People are nowhere near out of the woods here for the recent event.

    Teenagers sharing with other teenagers. Is it a nice thing to do? No, not at all. Should it be criminally prosecuted at tax payers’ expense and compromise the lives of all these kids? Absolutely not.

  5. Eric Knight

    1,000 sex offenders created from one video. Society must be so proud creating permanent, unemployable pariahs, particularly since the boundaries of virtually every other activity has been obliterated.

    Shame. I thought Scandinavia was more evolved than this.
