The internet has brought many benefits to mankind over they years, but few seen the dark side of it at its inception. Before its inception pornography was for most the top shelve of a newsagent, out of the way of young people, I remember a shop sex creating a stir in the town I used to live and was closed down. We have moved from our Victorian hypocrisy regarding sex, but that does not open the door to a Free for All. What the Chief Constable is forgetting is if we take no action against the voyeurs, we are on the slippery slope of de-criminalisation.
The Chief Constable I would presume is a man of the world or is he another fine product of the Intelligentsia, surely he has not said this to create a debate, were no debate is necessary.
Who does he think is in these images, a porn star from one of the many porn film companies that have emerged over the last twenty years. Of course not, it could be a 7-13 old performing sex, whose parents, guardians have sold them into a form of sexual slavery, or even worse a child who has vanished from their home never to be seen again and whose short life be extinguished in a snuff film. Or a child placed in front of a Cam and made to carry out sexual acts as the tokens pile up for the person in control of the child.
If there was no voyeurs out there, there be no corruption of the child. Childhood is the age of Innocence and this officers comments will in lead to the end of innocence for a child. They will also grow up seeing sex as a form of exploitation and in many ways not only will their childhood be stolen, but so will their adult life. So for the Police Officer to say we should spend police time on other issues, is he talking about handing out car fines, more Cautions to damage people’s prospects of employment, dealing with minor neighbour disputes, etc None of these are important as much as ending child pornography as it is well documented that watching excessive porn can lead to violence and rape.

CROSS POSTED ON BYLINE.COM
Simon Bailey, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for child protection, has caused a storm of controversy this week by suggesting that people who view pornographic pictures of children on the net should not be prosecuted.
He wants to limit prosecutions to people who direct child sexual abuse on line and those seeking to groom young people on line so they can later rape them. As he says:
“There are tens of thousands of men seeking to exploit children on line with a view to meeting them with a view to then raping them and performing the most awful sexual abuse on them. That’s where we believe the focus has got to be, because they’re the individuals that pose the really significant threat.”
