Suspect arrested, child rescued

The nationwide manhunt for a “John Doe” suspected child pornographer ended a little more than 24 hours after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) issued a public appeal for information about his identity and whereabouts. John Doe was arrested Wednesday afternoon after a tip from the public was called in to […] Read more

A Few Predators in San Diego

This morning I woke up to a certain news program on my radio, and was happy to hear coverage of great work of Homeland Security in conjunction with ICAC task forces on Operation Sunflower. Over 245 suspects in over 20 states have been arrested on charges of child pornography possession, distribution and production. (Go Homeland Security!)

The voice floating out of the radio expressed shock and surprise that a few of the suspects were even in San Diego! Yes, it’s true, several of those 245 arrests occurred in San Diego, where a pilot and teacher were arrested, among others. We appreciate the work of all the federal, local and state agencies who work together in ICAC units to take these predators off the streets.

But for all the herculean efforts our ICAC unit, local, state and federal agencies make, the few arrested were just the tip of the iceberg. Since there are over 624,000 traders of child sexual abuse and torture images in the US, and we divide those 624,000 by the 61 ICAC task forces, statistically, an ICAC task force is confronted by over 10,000 offenders in its area. Because of the population density in San Diego, the number of predators may even be higher here.

Since child sex predators invade every demographic, sociographic, economic, and racial strata in society, there is no place in the world which is not infested by their presence.

So let’s support our ICAC task forces in getting those few….hundred thousand… of them.

Finally

Finally, today, a major national news outlet covered the topic of child sexual abuse and torture images (what others call child pornography). After seven years of working in this field, and trying to get someone, anyone, at the national level to cover this life-saving topic, finally someone did.

Due to lack of resources, law enforcement can only investigate less than 1% of child sexual abuse and exploitation cases, leaving millions of innocent children vulnerable.

If you care about the safety of our children, please take a moment now to sign and share our petition!

URGENT ACTION: Tell CA Lawmakers To Vote “No” On AB109 – The Public Safety Realignment!

On 3/16/11, the California state legislature voted to move Assembly Bill 109 forward, which includes a public safety “realignment” proposal intended to shift the burden of incarceration and parole supervision from the state to local counties, all in an effort to balance the budget.

Thank You Social Media Fans!

Thank you to all of our Innocent Justice social media friends! We’ve just passed (or nearing) a few milestones!

UPDATE 12-15-10: It all comes down to this

In the next few days, the Senate is planning to vote on an “omnibus spending bill.” Contained in that bill is $60 million in desperately-needed child rescue funding that PROTECT fought for all during 2010.

If the omnibus fails, state and local law enforcement resources for fighting child exploitation will be slashed in half. Thousands of children will be left in the hands of sexual predators, simply because the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces didn’t have the people to go rescue them… even though they know where they are.

That’s why we need you to call these Senators, who we believe might help us…
