01) Child porn bust: Anatomy of an international child pornography investigation

“This case has really challenged people to reconsider what nudism and child modelling are,” said Toronto police Detective-Constable Lisa Belanger, who led the investigation. “It’s caused countries around the world to look at this material and ask whether it’s OK for doctors, teachers, daycare providers and hockey coaches to be buying this kind of material. Countries from South Africa to Australia, Isle of Man to Hong Kong and Spain have all said it’s not OK. I think it’s going to have ripple effects everywhere.”

The charges against Way, who is in custody, have not yet been proven in court. His lawyer, Nyron Dwyer, declined repeated requests for comment on behalf of his client.

Among Way’s alleged Canadian clients are a Chatham volunteer hockey coach, a teacher in Toronto, a priest and a Boy Scout leader in Quebec, and a retired high-school principal in Nova Scotia.

In the U.S., those arrested include police officers, a high-profile pediatrician, school teachers, principals and coaches and a Boy Scout leader.

In all, 108 Canadians have been arrested in Project Spade sweeps (50 in Ontario, of whom at least 20 have so far pleaded guilty to various charges). Another 76 Americans face charges. Internationally, another 164 are before the courts. And hundreds more remain under investigation.”

This was the AZOV case.

I never had any dealings with AZOV…They sold naturist videos…I wasn’t aware of the modeling photos [and videos?].

They effectively [if not literally], arrested and charged hundreds of people, over material which had previously been considered legal.

…A lot of people got blindsided by this monstrous act.

This is how the state works…They simply strike, whether the laws are there or not.

It’s all reinterpretation, long after the fact.

You wouldn’t think they’d be this brazen…but they are.

    “What they had in common, police allege, was that they paid a Toronto man to provide them with explicit ‘naturist’ videos of children – and, as a result, they are now caught up in what is believed to be the smashing of the largest, most extensive commercial child pornography ring ever uncovered in Canada.”

    When the State decrees that images of naked human beings are obscene, and to possess them is a crime, one can be sure the State has become a totalitarian one.

    It would be interesting to know the Federation of Canadian Naturists (fcn.ca) stance was on this Toronto police led investigation, and whether they ban photography within their clubs countrywide. Interestingly fcn says: “Naturism is founded on family participation. Children in naturist families learn to appreciate the body as part of their natural environment. They grow up with healthful attitudes and accept the physical nature of both sexes and all ages without fear or shame.”

    For what it is worth, the AZOV enterprise made visual the fcn tenet in a very, very beautiful way.

      I can tell you, this is the way I have experienced the state…a cruel, blood sucking totalitarian.

      …I’m sure I’m not the only one.

      “For what it is worth, the AZOV enterprise made visual the fcn tenet in a very, very beautiful way.”

      They put it into practice, yes…

      The writing was on the wall for years, however…despite their “content clearance” from the authorities…they wanted, and would, pounce at any excuse.

      I take very, very deep issue with Brian Way keeping a blatant, child porn business hidden from everyone [including his customers] on the side, while doing business with what undoubtedly would be many BoyLovers and Girl-Lovers…

      We can say all we want about how “they should have known better, and followed gut instincts…and how it’s ultimately on the hands of the state”…but this guy took down and screwed over a lot of people, with his recklessness and dishonesty.

      It was his blatant illegal activity, which made everything collapse…and I’m sure a lot of people did not know, who they were dealing with.

      Yeah…sure…the laws are unconscionable and stupid…The people who passed, implemented and enforced them should be setting in a prison cell, for it…

      …But a lot of people got unwittingly hooked into this mess, without their own choice or educated intent, because of that one idiot who was not on the level with them.

    “But a lot of people got unwittingly hooked into this mess, without their own choice or educated intent, because of that one idiot who was not on the level with them.”

    I would be wary of describing all, what was it, 800 customers as innocent, particularly those living in ‘five eyes’ countries who must have had some inkling of the consequences should they be discovered purchasing such material. As an aside, I have never understood why people are prepared to execute traceable financial transactions for material freely viewable on the web.

    “Yeah…sure…the laws are unconscionable and stupid…The people who passed, implemented and enforced them should be sitting in a prison cell, for it…”

    Indeed. From Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_International_child_pornography_investigation : ‘Apart from the children involved in the production of the Azov films, 386 children were said to have been rescued from exploitation by purchasers of the films.’

    So handy to use emotive language such as ‘rescued from exploitation’, ‘surrepticiously indecently photographed’, ‘any sign they were acting upon their sexual orientations whether the actions were legal or illegal, demonstrates an escalation of activity that must be interpreted as an increased risk to children regardless of the illegality’, to enforce police tyranny.
