In just one day, Brazilian authorities went after 578 people on warrants for crimes of child pornography and sexual exploitation of minors. The massive raid is the largest ever in Brazil — and possibly in the world. Full Article

  1. Facts should matter

    “Because of this, within the law, we will be unrelenting in combatting it. We will not stop here,” he added.”

    They’re fighting a war they’ll never win. They might as well be having a war on dust.

  2. That David

    That doesn’t make the war not worth fighting.

  3. Sunny

    I wonder what constitutes child porn in Brazil. The age of consent is 14 and can be as low as 12 with close in age exceptions.

  4. NPS

    The article mentioned that some of the images were of adolescents. The age of consent is 14 in Brazil. I wonder how many of those arrested just photo-documented themselves having legal, consensual sex with a 14-17 year-old girlfriend.

  5. Eric

    What I gathered from the article is that all of those arrested were for possession or sharing, as always, the manufacturers were not stopped. I can’t take this seriously, it is the same as the war on drug users. It is always the low level people by the tens of thousands are getting arrested. Often with CP the sites are run or monitored by the police. They leave them up, as was my situation, and watch who goes to them and then pounce. Why can the government hack into the air wall protected nuclear reactor in another country and disrupt it, but they can’t disrupt the sites of these manufacturers and they can’t seem to catch them?
