    Unhappy With child porn, its OK to look, just dont keep.

    Article about the courts' decision: NY's highest court overturns two child porn convictions against former Marist College prof - DailyFreeman.com

    The charges dismissed by the Court of Appeals, Smith said, relate to photos that were on Kent’s computer but that he hadn’t downloaded. The court ruled that to be convicted of possession, a person must take an active step, such as downloading the illegal material.

    Smith said the ruling, in essence, means “going to a website alone does not constitute a violation of the existing statutes.”
    GOT THAT?? If you want to look at CP, look all you want, the browser cache doesn't count. Just dont manually download it to your system.
    They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.

    I wouldn't call looking a good thing to begin with, but I think the practical thing that comes from a ruling like this is it forces police/FBI to actually go after the content creators instead of the random filth-mongerers who click on it for the jollies.

    Exactly, and not only that it is actually forgiving to those naive and idiotic that click the links in error following another path, or are deceived into it following other "dirty" links.

    Not like I'm defending it, but I agree - it definitely shifts the effort on to those that need to be taken down first. Can't kill a tree by cutting off the branches, got to kill the roots first.

    There's another way to go about it . . . (this comes from the Bend Police Dept.)

    Perp brings his computer into the shop for repair. If I see CP on it, while working on it, I'm required to report it to the authorities. The perp can now be charged with distribution.


    Harder

    That's kind of sketchy. That's like carrying an unregistered gun, getting caught and then charged for attempted murder.

    Not that either crime shouldn't be reported, just that the charges are silly.

    I don't agree with that law. Who is to say the shop didn't transfer the files onto the pc out of spite? Also, what is the shop doing snooping around through folders dealing w/ pics? Not like anyone is just going to leave them laying around on the desktop and then drop it off somewhere if they were indeed guilty.

    I'm assuming a full investigation would be done before anything could be charged?

    Trust me, we don't go looking! But, you wouldn't believe what we see for desktop backgrounds and screen savers.

    We have to work on computers with our screens turned, so other customers can't see what might come up for a desktop or screen saver.

    I can see where one might have some safety measures in place so that you don't get accuse someone of child porn for accidentally coming across a kiddy porn site.

    But I would think that one could tell if someone was actively frequenting sites and the pattern would be akin to hitting the download button.

    If your goal is to cut down on the industry you really have to fight the front on both producers / sellers as well as filth-mongers.

    It may not be ok but it is legal.

    Exactly !

    Hang 'em all and one by one, possibly, we could rid us of this sickness. If convicted, these low life's need to be in a Stockade with no use of their hands except for meals and bathing. No books, no TV , no internet. Just their own thoughts to occupy their time...
