I could talk to a paedophile who didn't want to be a paedophile, but I'd find it very very hard to talk to a redpiller. I'm hoping I'll be able to empathise with absolutely anybody, even people like that, who could never empathise with me or anyone else, some day.

Long piece in the Irish Times, with the family impact, community and what needs to happen.

‘I started looking at images of children online when I was 16’

Quote:
The offender

‘If I hadn't been caught, I’d still be doing it’

There was a knock on the door. Jack was woken by the Garda in his bedroom. His mother, Jane, returned from her morning walk and found the police in her garden.

“They told me that they had identified our IP address and that someone in our house been downloading child sex abuse material,” says Jane. “I thought they had the wrong home. My daughter told me it was Jack.” Jack is in his early 20s and lives with his parents; his sister is few years younger.

Jack told his father. “It was so hard,” says Jack. “But I also felt like a weight had been lifted, because I had wanted to talk but how could I say what I was doing? I wanted to run, hide and die. If I hadn’t been caught, I’d probably still be doing it today.”

Jack is a sex offender who has engaged in both “contact” and “non-contact” abuse. He was 12 when he first abused physically a younger child. Within a year of this, a trusted adult sexually offended against him.

Feb 25th piece on some of the disturbing material Gardaí are dealing with and also the legal perspective.

Quote:
Gardaí are seizing increasing amounts of virtual or simulated child pornography, in the form of cartoons, text and computer graphic images.

The material, which does not feature real child victims, is frequently seized alongside child abuse material by gardaí under the Operation Ketch initiative, an intelligence-led operation aimed at proactively targeting those who download and disseminate such material, according to Garda and legal sources.

Investigators have also started to uncover images of minors created using sophisticated computer graphics programmes as well as standard adult pornography which has been “aged down”, meaning it has been altered to make the participants appear to be underage.

Decent piece from The Journal re how Ireland deals with sex offenders, many of whom don't engage with services.

This really is disturbing. The sheer volume.

https://www.rte.ie/news/world/2019/1...raphy-website/

Quote:
The US Justice Department has announced the seizure of one of the world's largest child pornography websites.

The site, which was called 'Welcome to Video', was hosted on the so-called "darknet" and funded by Bitcoin.

A 23-year-old South Korean man has been indicted for operating the website and 337 site users have been arrested and charged in countries around the world, including in Ireland.

Authorities described the website as the largest child sexual exploitation market by volume of content.

Eight terabytes of child sexual exploitation videos have been recovered, one of the largest seizures of its kind.

The images contained more than 250,000 unique videos.
