“Britain is a key link in the biggest ever international investigation into the production and supply of paedophile ‘snuff’ movies – in which children are murdered on film – an Observer investigation can reveal.
Dmitri Vladimirovich Kuznetsov, a 30-year-old former car mechanic in Moscow, was identified after British Customs and police traced the origin of violent child porn videos found in the UK back to Russia.”
An article from September 2000…
It deserves mentioning, that this type of thing is not at all common.
Given all the rumor of it, and enticement of “a billion dollar a year market”, some less than decent people have stepped forward to fill the niche, in hopes of seizing a piece of the “billion dollars”…
…a “billion dollars” that has more in common with unicorns, than with reality.
That said…What I have to say about this issue, has not changed since the last time I addressed it…
Updated for the present day:
We live in a world with an estimated ten billion people in it…If we keep searching long enough, we will find someone [even a tiny minority of people] who are involved in this type of thing.
…That does not make it “a pedophile issue”…at least not in the manner most people are going to presume it to be.
Of course, it is a false reputation, and public relations problem for pedophiles…
However…for those of us who’ve never even seen such things as a child snuff film…this is not an issue we at all identify with.
I think probability dictates, that this sort of thing exists…even when we’ve had no proof of it…
…But I also think that people are fully justified in holding an agnostic position about it, where no such content has materialized…Or, where the matter is being distorted.
Allegedly, this guy was found with the stuff…and had some customers…Fair enough…If true…guilty as charged.
…This is one case, with one massive fool…and a group of fools who followed along…
…This is not evidence of any “child snuff porn” pandemic.
This is an important point…A market for this type of content, is barely existent…Which should tell us something, and speak volumes.
I hold no solidarity with people who engage in this behavior:
Since I know religious, conspiracy theory people get periodically funneled to this blog, I’ll clarify the following to them…
I condemn the behaviors represented in that article, in no uncertain terms.
I trust I don’t have to clarify this, to my regular readers.
This specific issue is one of the issues, which exists in a sort of “mythical” realm…barely existent, but existent enough to cause problems for MAPs…extremely hard or impossible to track down…not even a part of most MAP’s reality…But it still gets associated with us…And we still get blamed for it, even when we are not part of that “market”.
I’ve been saying this for years…
…It’s the fact that modern laws and punishment are so severe, that has created such a deeply insulated place for this stuff to exist in…
…You’d almost certainly have more people reporting this stuff, if they didn’t have to compromise themselves, offering their own heads up to the “justice” system, while doing so.
