Child pornography and sexual predators on the Internet

Posted in Sex Offenders September 18th, 2009 @ 9:53 am

According to a United Nations report approximately 750,000 sexual predators are constantly prowling the Internet to gain contact with children. Sadly, the number of sites devoted to child pornography worldwide is growing larger every year as well.

UNICEF estimates that there are more than four million web sites featuring minors and that includes children under two years old. More than 200 new images are circulated daily with production and distribution of child pornographic images between 3 and 20 billions dollars each year. The images of sexually exploited children are also increasingly shocking. UNICEF estimates that between 10,000 and 100,000 minors are victims of child pornography networks.

Because the Internet provides no rules or regulations on what can and cannot be uploaded, child pornography will continue to be available on the Internet. Child pornography is a repulsive crime and those who participate need to be prosecuted.

Law enforcement is working hard to stop sexual predators. However, they need every parent to watch what and where your children are doing on the Internet as well as teaching your child to be aware of predators.
