This is from October, but I just discovered it. I have a hard time feeling sorry for them and whatever punishment these people get if guilty. Although, in this case, he's already dead.

Lord Janner enjoyed 'the halo effect' as a prominent politician who was given the 'benefit of the doubt at every turn' over child abuse claims, inquiry hears

The late Lord Janner enjoyed 'the halo effect' as a prominent politician which meant he was effectively protected from being prosecuted for years amid allegations he abused vulnerable children, an inquiry heard.

Lawyers for the Labour peer's alleged victims told the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) that there was a 'culture of deference' towards Lord Janner.

The former Leicestershire MP died in 2015 having been charged with 22 counts of historic child sexual abuse dating back decades.

Former Florida mayor arrested on child pornography charges
https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/fl ... story.html
ASSOCIATED PRESS |
FEB 21, 2021 AT 10:14 AM
TAMPA — A former mayor of a small Florida city has been arrested on child pornography possession and distribution charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida said Kevin Hohn, 65, is a former mayor of Brooksville, a city north of Tampa.

Federal agents discovered more than 100 images of child pornography on his computer, including some that appeared to have been secretly taken in his home. The criminal complaint says that investigators identified his address as one that distributed child pornography images and a video.

On Friday, investigators conducted a search warrant in Hohn’s home and found more than 100 images depicting naked prepubescent and teenage girls. Some of these images appeared to have been secretly shot inside his home.

Before he was a city council member and mayor in 2014, Hohn was an Internal Revenue Service agent who investigated money laundering, public corruption and organized crime cases. A recent biography on a local newspaper says he later was a coach for an after-school golf program.

Hohn faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in federal prison if convicted.



Missing 14-year-old North Carolina girl found alive, kidnapper dead after shootout with Arkansas police
By KATE FELDMAN
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS |
FEB 22, 2021 AT 4:06 PM

https://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/ ... story.html

A man accused of kidnapping a 14-year-old North Carolina girl he was chatting with online died Sunday, a day after trading gunfire with police.

William Robert Ice, 38, was sought in the disappearance of Savannah Grace Childress, who went missing from her Davidson County home on Feb. 11. After Savannah disappeared, police determined that she had been her Davidson County Schools-issued computer to talk to Ice online across multiple platforms, according to the Davidson County Police Department.

Ice, in turn, had been talking to several juveniles, who were able to help identify the Pennsylvania man.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Secret Service, the United States Marshal’s Service and the Pennsylvania State Police collaborated on the investigation and tracked Ice to Lonoke County, Arkansas.

Two Lonoke police officers spotted Ice’s car parked at a McDonald’s around 8 p.m. Saturday and approached, according to the Arkansas State Police.

Officers saw two people inside the car and instructed the driver, Ice, to step out. That’s when he pulled a gun and fired at one officer, critically injuring him.

Another officer returned fire as Ice got back into the car and sped off.

An Arkansas State Police trooper already in the area saw Ice driving off and pursued him until the suspect crashed into a snowbank.

The passenger, later identified as Savannah, jumped out of the car and fled to a trooper.

Ice was found critically injured in the driver’s seat with what the Arkansas State Police believe to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He died Sunday and his cause of death is pending an autopsy by the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory.

The injured officer, Cody Carpenter, is in stable condition at a Little Rock hospital.

Police said further investigation revealed that Ice was also wanted by Pennsylvania law enforcement authorities in connection with other child predator cases.





Arizona police arrest 37 suspected 'sexual predators' tied to 'child sex crimes and human trafficking'
Undercover police placed ads on websites commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts
By Audrey Conklin | Fox News

https://www.foxnews.com/us/arizona-poli ... -predators

The Phoenix Police Department, in partnership with other Arizona authorities, on Friday announced 37 arrests in connection to human trafficking and sex crimes.

Undercover police placed ads on websites commonly sought out by suspects seeking illegal sex acts with children as part of an investigation dubbed Operation Broken Hearts.

The probe targeted "sexual predators engaged in child sex crimes and human trafficking," Phoenix police wrote in a Friday Facebook post.

Suspects "solicited and/or brokered deals for various sex acts and were subsequently arrested," police said.

Police told Fox News that the operation lasted a week and took place in early February. Because police were posing undercover, there were no live victims in the case.

Those arrested ranged from 21 to 66, according to Fox 10 Phoenix.

Also participating in the operation were the Mesa, Tempe and Chandler police departments, Homeland Security Investigations and the Attorney General's Office.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about human trafficking to contact the Human Trafficking Hotline at (888) 373-7888, or visit humantraffickinghotline.org.

Another group of scumbags caught earlier this week. This reminds me. I meant to ask, does anyone know why Joe cancelled Operation Talon? I'm looking for the reason behind it.

4 Northeast Florida men among 12 arrested in Marion County child sex sting
https://www.news4jax.com/news/2021/02/2 ... sex-sting/

Four Northeast Florida men were among 12 arrested in a child sex sting out of Marion County, authorities said.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the 12 men talked online with who they thought were children but were actually undercover detectives. Some of them are accused of sending sexually explicit photos to the detectives.

Investigators said eight men traveled to a location in Marion County to have sex with the child they thought they had been messaging online, but when they arrived, they were actually met by law enforcement officers and arrested.

In addition, investigators said, four men transmitted harmful material to who they believed were minors.

During a news conference Monday, Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods issued a stern warning to parents and also people who prey on children.

“To the would-be, vile individuals that are doing this and are seeking children in Marion County, be assured that I will find you, I will put handcuffs on you and I will put you in my jail. My deputies will spend hours hunting you down. My job is bringing people to justice, but if it was my choice, I’d bury you under the jail if I could,” Woods said. “My message to parents, I want to make something clear: You need to be fully aware of where your children are talking online. Be aware of their social media. All of these individuals, for some of them, this might be their first offense, but I promise you it’s not their first time.”

Dunte Campbell, 31, of Jacksonville, was arrested in Marion County on charges of traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child, using a computer to seduce/solicit/lure a child, using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Allen Vasquez, 18, of Jacksonville, was arrested on a warrant charging him with transmitting harmful material to a minor.

Lonny Blankenship, 51, of Lake City, was arrested in Marion County on charges of traveling to meet after using a computer to lure a child, using a computer to seduce/solicit/lure a child and using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony.

Robin Strickland, 21, of Gainesville, was arrested on a warrant charging him with using a computer to solicit a child, using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony and transmitting harmful material to a minor.

Nobody even knows if Operation Talon was every really an operation. ICE has, and still does, investigate sex crimes when the suspects are non-citizens.

I obviously do not support pedophilia and would want to see anybody performing it brought to justice. But is it newsworthy? I'm sure folks are arrested every day for all manner of crimes. We don't typically post every time somebody is murdered, or a child abducted, or a woman raped, or any number of other awful things. Why are you posting several messages about the arrests of accused pedophiles? I know this is the Epstein thread, but he is newsworthy because he was running a huge ring of selling out underaged women into sex slavery to a variety of rich and famous people.

Child trafficking and such crimes is the fastest growing international crime network that the world has ever seen. I'm not saying anyone here supports it, in any way. I think we should celebrate when these scumbags get locked up. Large groups are getting arrested more and more. I would think it would be more newsworthy than many other crimes, but that's my opinion. You're right though, maybe I shouldn't post them.

Child trafficking and sex trafficking in general are some or the worst crimes against humanity that there are. I do think we should celebrate locking up the perpetrators.

OK, my bad. I was basically trying to understand whether this was some kind of "Q" thing, since I know that whole movement claims to be related to theories about a vast network of pedophiles, run by the Clintons and other Democrats. I do agree that it is a good thing when anybody doing such a thing gets caught and brought to justice.

Yeah, not a Q thing, but you guys have me intrigued now. I'm going to have to do some research on it. If I find anything interesting, I'll create a separate Conspiracy Theories thread to post it in.

I remember being up at a Boy Scout camp when the rifle range director was caught with lots of underage porn on his computer. He resigned in disgrace. But I remember how he looked at me one time and told me to pull my uniform socks up. It seemed innocuous at the time but after knowing that he was caught with kiddie porn, the dark undertones emerge...

This shit is everywhere. Q is crazy but it doesn't change how ubiquitous this nonsense actually is.

The owners of a former Christian reform school for girls in southwest Missouri are charged with more than 100 counts alleging they sexually, emotionally and physically abused girls for years.

Sixteen former residents of the Circle of Hope Girls Ranch in Cedar County say Boyd and Stephanie Householder frequently restrained them with handcuffs, whipped them with belts, taped their mouths shut and struck or punched them for minor offenses such as drinking from a spring or singing.

Boyd Householder, 71, is charged in 22 counts with having sexual contact, including sexual intercourse, with one girl who was younger than 17 at the time.
