A video sharing website user who posted a clip of a man apparently swinging a baby around has had his house raided by an armed Australian police anti-paedophile squad. The user "Biggles9" has been charged with "accessing child abuse material, downloading child abuse material and uploading child abuse material with the intent to …

[ worked (past tense) quite a few years for the QLD police in Oz and got to talking to quite a few of the officers during those years. Most of the time, the cops can't be bothered pulling you over unless you do 11kph over the limit (that's 6.9mph) *unless* you do it in a "safety" zone (schools, hospitals, etc...) Why? Because the fines for anything under that just isn't worth the time (mostly).]
This is almost the same as in the UK any thing around 33/35 mph,75/80mph and MOST cops dont want to know UNLESS you are being a total prat .
WTF is going on Down Under? First Cartoon-Porn, now this !
That's actually a rhetorical question.
1. In the UK all the increase in employment over the last 20 years has been in the Public Sector.
2. All these new bureaucrats are actually unnecessary and need something to do (see Scottish "Government").
3. Make more things regulated/licensed/illegal to give them something to do.
Hitler understood that bureaucrats were traitors-in-waiting and all you had to do was takeover the top of the hierarchy and things would run as normal. Look at any nazi-occupied country in the 2nd WW. He didn't like cartoons either.
This is insane.
This has to stop. Lawmakers secure positions of power, police get recognition and promotions, news agency's make money, but in the process they destroy someones life just from the accusation. And once your accused for this type of crime your considered guilty in any country.
Another thing, when was the last time any pedophile fought back with deadly force? Is an entire armed task force necessary to arrest a pedophile? You may need a task-force of computer experts but not armed personnel. It only purpose is to harm someones reputation weather they are guilty or not. And in the US even non guilty people are purposly stressed to the point that they can no longer function in daily life.
I think its time we sue politions and police, they have endangerd children more than helped them with these kind of activitys. They are more concerned about making themselves popular than protecting children which is just as wrong and immoral.
Yeah, that ad makes me sick - I have to change channel whenever it comes on. I'd like to charge the government with promoting child abuse for producing that ad.
@RRRoamer not just USA
and UK but OZ as well. How can you find this heartening?
I know an old chap who is useless on the Internet yet he can see the UK turning into a police state. He says I should watch myself. He says if he were my age he would moce to the USA or OZ. I tried to explain that it was happening there too, possibly worse.
We are witnessing the gradual distruction of our free society, a little bit at a time. No one likes paedos (except possibly other paedos) but this is not a case of child abuse. It's abuse of bad laws to persecute ordinary people.
TUX because at least we still have some freedoms.
