internet - why is is so easily available

Why isn’t child porn and other indecent images of children removed from the Internet? Isn’t the internet supposed to be policed? Why are such things as these so easily available???

What do you think? Have your say and share your views and opinions about the issues that shape the world that we live in . we look forward to hearing what you have to say.

First of all lets look at the Internets beginnings. It began over half a century ago during the 1950’s when the first satellite(Sputnik 1) was launched by Soviet Union and Americana felt threatened. They thought that the Soviet Union could also attack from space. So America created its own research agency who’s aim was to create safety from space based missile attacks. This agency became known as the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA.) They soon followed the Soviet Union launching there own satellite. This was the very beginnings of the internet.

The idea that started back then grew and grew and during the late 60’s and early 70’s computers started been able to connect with each other using packet switching(this been part of the idea behind how the internet works today) with the worlds first commercial network been created in the mid 70’s. even though it was commercial it was nothing compared to how we know and use the internet today. Further advancements were made during the next 2 decades and it was in 1992 when internet access was available to the public

The internet was originally created to share information. Nowadays the possibilities are endless with movie and music streaming, shopping, gaming, file sharing and video conferencing with people on the other side of the world. Anything is possible. Everything is just a click away.

So who polices the internet? Internet police is a generic term for police, secret government departments and other organizations are in charge of policing Internet in all around the world. The main purposes of Internet police, depending on the country as each are different, are fighting cyber crime, as well as censorship, propaganda,monitoring uses and manipulating the online public opinion.

An article printed earlier this year @ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-147511/60-arrests-child-porn-crackdown.html shows just how accessible child porn is . Here is the story

60 arrests in child porn crackdown

Police have made 60 arrests over six weeks as part of a nationwide crackdown on who people who buy child pornography off the Internet, a force spokesman said today.

Around 200 officers were involved in the operation which included searching more than 50 homes and seizing hard drives from around 100 computers.

Northumbria Police removed thousands of CDs and floppy disks for analysis by its computer crime unit.

A total of 56 men and four women have been arrested and released on bail pending further inquiries.

No further action is being taken against one further man who was arrested.

One had hidden more 12,000 indecent images of children inside an off-the-shelf computer game stored on his computer.

The operation in the north east began when officers studied data about British Internet users who bought access to child porn sites from an American website.

The arrests came after weeks of tracing addresses across Tyne and Wear and Northumberland from credit card details.

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Jones said: “They might be able to hide it from their wives or partners, but they can’t hide it from the police.”

The offence of possessing indecent photographs of children carries a maximum sentence of five years while making or distributing such images has a 10 year sentence.

Anyone convicted of such offences would automatically be put on the Sex Offenders Register.

The is just one story about the crack down on child porn, another story that hit the headlines in may 2012 was  “Child porn addict amassed 250,000 pictures after getting hooked on ‘base and evil’ images as a schoolboy” The  story can be read @ http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2137807/Obsessed-internet-child-porn-addict-amassed-250-000-images-12-years-age-15.html

These are just stories of cracking down on it but there is no talking about ridding the internet of it altogether, So why aren’t such things like child porn removed from the internet??? Searching on the internet we can can’t seem to find an explanation to why illegal groups can post such disturbing images etc, Especially when the internet is supposed to be policed.?

Are there other reasons and ulterior motives  behind why it hasn’t been removed completely? Filters may remove it from search listing and popups but why is it so easily accessible by altering search settings? Is internet policing working? If not what can be done to change this?

Have your say and let us know what you think…..

    Kiddie porn still exists on the internet, in part, because it is posted and hosted by law enforcement to entrap and prosecute potential sexual offenders. It has become that those in charge of catching the criminals … are criminals themselves, tho they are robed in righteousness.

    Perhaps it is the eagerness of the courts to take children away from their fathers that makes it easier to take advantage of children (traditionally, women are the nurturers and men are the protectors, but those roles have been changing significantly). We all know women do not get the children half the time, but more like 87% of the time the children go to the mother to have the vast majority of control of the children (if the fathers had control of the children as much as women do, you can be certain society would blame the fathers).
    You know you live in a matriarchy when it becomes impossible to critique women without massive backlash from the powers of women or those who have self appointed as the protectors of women
