LTRP Note: We post this disturbing news article by Associated Press because there are still many people who do not believe child sex abuse and child pornography is an outrageously huge epidemic. Child pornography is a multi-billion dollar “industry.” And please pray for all of the children who were victimized by the 72 people arrested.
WASHINGTON – Seventy-two people have been charged with participating in an international child pornography network that prosecutors say used an online bulletin board called Dreamboard to trade tens of thousands of images and videos of sexually abused children.1
Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said Wednesday a 20-month law enforcement effort called Operation Delego targeted more than 600 Dreamboard members around the world for allegedly participating in the private, members-only Internet club created to promote pedophilia.
Numerous participants in the network sexually abused children ages 12 and under, produced images and video of the abuse and then shared it with other club members, according to court papers released in the case.
At a news conference at the Justice Department, the attorney general called the criminal activity a “nightmare” for the children” and said that some of the children featured in the images and videos were just infants.

And please protect your children and grandchildren.
