Child Porn So Widespread In UK- Police Can’t Prosecute Everyone

 A British police chief has warned that there is a “horrifying” number of people viewing child sexual abuse images online. Dave Thompson, chief constable of West Midlands police, made his comments amid suggestions that paedophiles who view indecent images should not be charged unless they pose a physical threat to children.

Society needs to discuss the issue, which is about “much more than law enforcement,” Thompson told the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee “I am staggered by what I see in terms of the operations the force carries out on the peer-to-peer sharing of images and more sensitive covert policing techniques we carry out,” he said.

RT reports:

“The amount of men in this country who appear to show an active interest in his area is horrifying and the scale of it, I think, takes my breath away.

“There is a really big discussion I think, as a society, about how we deal with this, that’s much more than law enforcement. Of course, it makes us all feel deeply uncomfortable to think that people who have that involvement in those activities should in any shape or form escape punishment. But the scale of it is just absolutely huge,” added Thompson.

The National Crime Agency estimated in 2015 that there were up to 750,000 men in Britain who were interested in having sex with children. This suggests that as many as one in every 35 adult males is on the pedophile spectrum.

A 2016 study by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) also suggested that the number of individuals looking at child porn in Britain could exceed half a million.

At the committee meeting, Thompson was asked by Tory MP Tim Loughton whether there should be alternative prosecutions for those found guilty of viewing indecent images.

The chief constable replied: “I think if people are in denial that they’ve got a problem, then we need to be really careful that treatment might not work, but I think the broader issue that’s being raised is this is a massive challenge, I think, that goes far beyond policing.”

Gareth Morgan, the chief constable of Staffordshire Police, told the meeting that the decision to prosecute those who view explicit images of children should not be based on whether police have the resources.

Thompson’s comments came after Simon Bailey, the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) lead for child protection, suggested that pedophiles who view indecent images but do not molest children should not be taken to court.

Britain’s only nationwide agency tasked with offering treatment to pedophiles before they become child molesters, the Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending (StopSO), is on the brink of closure due to a lack of funding.

Its founder, Juliet Grayson, told RT earlier this year that working with perpetrators to reduce the occurrence of sexual abuse against children is more effective than “trying to constantly pick up the pieces after the abuse has happened.”

Thank you Tif

For total domination, Culture & Morality must be destroyed.  The UK has best make a turn quickly, doubtful if they can.

I know Jo, they are very creepy people from the UK, and they want open borders...to creeps, don't think so.

LOL Tif

"Open Borders" and their Plan for "Diversity" created a mess they may never get cleaned up, glad we're going the opposite direction, little by little.  "The Obama Plan" damn near wrecked this Country, but we're kicking back now, with DJT!!!

Tammy,

 Did you know that the United States Supreme Courts ruled that virtual child porn is not Unconstitutional? And even though it shows forced child rape, they sit back like perverted animals and entered their Supreme Judgement.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
