US and Russia urged to fight online child porn

By Derek Sooman on March 8, 2006, 3:20 PM
The US and Russia have been asked to do more to deal with the issue of child porn on the Net. Figures from the UK's Internet Watch Foundation indicate that 40 per cent of the online child abuse content it investigates is traced to the US, and 28 per cent back to Russia. By comparison, the UK makes up about 0.4 per cent.

"The Governments of the USA and Russia need to up their game and stem the tide of child pornography leaving their virtual shores because it is putting children across the world at risk," John Carr, new technology adviser for kids charity NCH, said.

Being from the USA I can say that the majority of this nation is full of perverted retards...I can't help but feel that Russia and the US are recieving some sort of profit from these online abusive sites and that would explain why they are doing a garbage job at tracking down and stopping these acts of outrageous abuse. We have some of the best computer hackers and technicians here in America so why hasn't the goverment enlisted us and used our unique abilities to stop these bastards?

The government doesn't care. Its like Katrina. Its a dog eat dog world out there. If youi get stuck, you yourself can only get out. At least, according to the government. And in any case, the US is short on money cos of Iraq so of course, if these perverts get more money, they get more taxes!
