Yes. It will provide funding for law enforcement directed solely at child predators we presently have only 246 federal agents dedicated to child exploitation as opposed to 2346 agents dedicated to white collar crime. We know the location of over 500,000 child pornographers, yet we are only prosecuting 2% of them do to lack of resources. This bill may not allow us to target all of them but the added resources will assuredly improve that statistic, a predator who is in jail cannot harm a child.

Protecting children should, of course, be a priority. But this bill was laden down with so much junk and BS secondary horse shite (a greenhouse for the Smithsonian? Primate sales laws? etc etc).

This whole thing is a crock.

Oprah blathered on incessantly, like she does, getting the females masses in a whirlwind about the children, and she never bothered to explain the PORK that saddles this bill which makes it 10 times as expensive as it should be.

Face it, sheep. If Congress, or Saint Oprah, gave a damn about protecting your kids, they would have ripped all the junk out of it and made it a truly honorable piece of legislation.

Instead, we all get to open the wallets even more (as if we’re not doing it enough these days) for crap we don’t need.

Make a list of the good this bill brings and a list of the bad this bill brings. I have a good idea that the good would far outweigh the bad any way you look at it.

I will have my CJ degree in the next year. I am specializing in sex offenders.
People that like 14-17 year olds and people that like 3 yr olds have two different disorders. An offender that is sexually attracted to 3 yr olds is not is not a risk to developed teens and vise versa.

“It may not do anything to protect what happened to my daughter”

Anonymous 09/24/2008 1:46pm

Let me try to explain the reality of federal criminal laws. It makes little difference how many laws are passed or how many agents are assigned to work the criminal violation IF the US Attorney doesn’t want to prosecute it, it won’t get prosecuted. In the 80s Congress passed drug laws making it illegal to distribute as little as 5 grams of rock cocaine. Frankly that is a small amount BUT it was a federal crime passed by Congress. Yet many federal judges complained about bringing such cases in federal court. They complained it clogged the courts. It was beneath them to handle cases that primarliy targeted gang members. Many judges believed it was a state problem. I don’t doubt the findings of the legislation but I seriously doubt the federal judges will welcome the prosecution of “millions of child pornography transactions.” I’ve seen it time and time again. Congress passes a law to satisfy a constituency yet nothing really happens because it can’t get prosecuted in the courts. And if it does the courts balk at the punishment as well as the prosecution. This problem needs more than just a new bureacracy. It needs the judiciary to get on board and begin punishing violators for the crimes already on the books. I’m not seeing that now. What makes anyone think this law will make a difference?

Take a look at the new book THE LAST UNDERCOVER by Bob Hamer. It details an FBI undercover operation targeting NAMBLA. What is striking is the sentences these men received, even when they admitted to molesting children in the past. Maybe we need new laws but maybe we need judges who will punish those who exploit children

Anonymous 09/23/2008 10:14am

Wow, the laws we have obviously aren’t working so some say the answer is to do nothing? The lady in here with the child who was molested by her father is my best friend, before you post an ignornat response about your privacy being invaded imagine this, your driving down the street in front of the childs fathers apartment complex when she says “thats where daddy lives, one of these days daddys gonna kill me” once you have had that happen to you you have every right to make an ignorant comment about not being able to get online at starbucks. For those who wish to stand by and do nothing are as guilty as those who are committing the crime for standing by and allowing it to happen. As for not owning a gun or taking care of matters I live in a country with a government and law enforcement who all took oaths to protect, unortunately he is more protected than the kids are. They wouldnt hesitate to lock me up and throw away the keys, everyone can say they would kill the bastard but when it comes down to it…… this woman and her kids live a daily hell that I hope none of you ever know.

It may not do anything to protect what happened to my daughter, but answer me this. If you knew that he worked the ER in a small town the only hospital there would you want him to treat your child? The hospital he works for knows what he is accused of and still allows him to work there. Wouldn’t you do anything to try and protect any child out there from predators like this. Because he is only “accused” there is nothing that the state will do. Until he is actually convicted but because of the current laws he couldn’t be convicted. The funding wasn’t there for him to fully be investigated. CPS case workers told me they belived he did it but that the supervisors wouldn’t allow them to do anymore. These case workers left CPS shortly after the investigation of my children. One of them told my father that because of the funding available he didn’t think he could help any children that were actually being abused.

I can tell you his name is Jamie he lives in Texas. Because he is just accused you will not find anything on a sex offender list. His protective order for family violence may be on public record. Because their is still an ongoing custody battle I am not able to post more because if I do something wrong the state will come after me for slander. This site will not allw me to copy and paste a picture in the post.
