Judge has ‘ethical and legal’ concerns over FBI running a massive ‘dark web’ child-porn site

A federal judge said he has “ethical and legal” concerns over the Department of Justice’s decision to take control of a child-pornography bulletin board and allow the distribution of as many as 1 million illegal images while agents hacked the computers of the site’s visitors. Full Article

We as former sex offenders should write a truck loads of letters to everyone (Congress, President, Media and etc.) demanding all DOJ employees to be places on the sex offender registry, for the protection of children, all over the world. The US Government is the largest criminal organization in the world.

As usual, the people in powerful positions are immune to justice that the rest have to face.

Your website address has privacy WHOIS and was just registered only a couple weeks ago. You have nothing on the website that says who you are or what you do.

I personally would avoid using your website forum until I knew who you were and what you were about. For All I know, you could be Chuck Rodrick.

Any judge should be concerned when one or more government agencies ask for permission to take over a site or network of sites for any reason. Child pornography possession, receipt, and/or distribution cases can easily be mismanaged. In fact in most it is extremely difficult to find out exactly what an agency knows, how they gained the knowledge, and wether or not someone anywhere in the process has done something worse than the accused.

I often (daily) wonder how many of us would be in this situation if the authorities would do preemptive measures, rather than trying to snare people like this. With all the technology available, these people would rather let sites like P2P and dark web sites stay operating , or even operate the sites themselves, in order to “catch” persons who would otherwise not be searching or even mistakenly linking up. Other countries seem to have the ability to block this information. That way the real criminals who are making this stuff and destroying people young and old can be better… Read more »

This story reminds me that SOR is really about our gov’t desire to use databases for the purpose of political security. Somewhere along the way it was decided that it was in the “interest of the people” for AGENTS to use databases for the people’s protection and security. Problem is when such a powerful tool is available it will usually be miss-used.

It probably is misused today, but no one knows of it publically due to the embarrassment it would cause to the agency/office/bureau/department. We cannot expect them to not abuse their power of having it on hand, can we? Just as long as no one knows of it, then it cannot hurt anyone…..right?

My son was arrested from an FBI sting that was done in 2005-6…His arrest was in 2008 and not one other thing was found to support the file they were following and arresting people for. I’m sure many of you remember. The FBI and other organizations were involved and two victims were paid restitution by all of the men who were arrested. I wonder if this current case results in a verdict of FBI misconduct, if other stings would then have a chance to be investigated. My son lost everything he had worked for, his home, fiance, career. He served… Read more »
