70,000 Strong Internet Pedophile Ring Busted
Well, an alive and very active 70,000 member internet pedophile ring,
"Operation Rescue" identified 670 suspects, investigation continuing,
230 known abused children in 30 countries rescued now in a safe place,
How in the world could 70k operate anything for years without a trace?
Perpetrators include teachers, police officers, scout leaders injecting fear,
One Spaniard working a summer youth camp abused 100 over five years,
Cori Bassett, public affairs officer for U.S. Immigration that we call ICE,
Arrests so far have been made in Georgia and Connecticut, at what price?
In the U.S. there have been five arrests & four convictions,70k strong?
That is it after a 36 month investigation, what in the heck took so long?
Reports say the illicit website attempted to operate as, discussion only,
Illegal images & films under the radar sounds like a bunch of bologna.
Law enforcement from 13 countries, U.S., Australia, Canada, Spain & UK,
Were involved in the so-called investigation but for years were kept at bay?
It is not like they were searching for one man in Iraq like Saddam Hussein,
Or Bin Laden and these guys were not known for playing children's games.
Now Europol is proudly taking credit for, "exceptional work of our experts, "
Excuse me but it took years to identify illegal activity from 70,000 perverts?
After his arrest, the top dog Dutch forum administrator helped police break,
Encryption measures that shielded users' identities we know now were fake.
'Europol subsequently issued over 4k intelligence reports to police authorities,
In over 30 countries in Europe and elsewhere…" might we question priorities?
"Which has led to the arrests of suspects and the safeguarding of children" Oh!
"Safe guarding of so many vulnerable children…" while #230 will surely grow.
Investigation is led by Britain's Child Exploitation & Online Protection Center,
Peter Davies claims more arrests as the investigations continue, is he a mentor?
But, 'those who have been members of the site can expect a knock on the door,
In the very near future, ' he said yet not exactly when, where or how many more.
In Britain, police said, the children involved were aged between 7 and 14 years,
Suspects arrested in Australia were from 19 to 84 but who can count the tears?
Where they, "preyed on children with anonymity, subterfuge and camouflage.'
70,000 members of an infamous ring, a handful of convictions, I find that odd.
