Church State Issues

Looking at "dirty pictures" is NOT a crime

Oct 30, 2014

Arizona Republic

Whenever you see the term "Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force" you have to remember it's a team of cops from a number of different police agencies who troll the internet trying to entrap people or trick people into committing victimless crimes that usually involved dirty pictures of children or child prostitution.

In am not sure all the police agencies that are involved, but I have posted articles that say the Arizona Department of Public Safety or the DPS, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (run by the jerk Sheriff Joe Arpaio), the Tempe Police, the Scottsdale Police, the Mesa Police and the Phoenix Police.

The cops usually claim the people they arrest are very evil, evil people who are "sexually abusing children", but that is very misleading. The Arizona law on this defines looking at a photo of a naked child as "sexually abusing a child", even when the child is a non-existent imaginary child that exists only in the mind of the police officer.

These cops also do stings where they make up imaginary, hot, sexy underage prostitutes who want to have sex with older men. And of course when some guy takes they cop up on his offer they are usually arrested on felony child abuse charges for wanting to have sex with a prostitute that exists only in the cops mind who made her up.

Personally I think it's wrong for the police to entrap people for crimes where the the cops asked a person to commit a crime and then arrests person when he takes up the cops offer.

A Phoenix man was arrested Tuesday because detectives believe he was distributing images of young girls being sexually abused, according to a statement from the Phoenix Police Department.

Keith Carlson, 52, was interviewed and arrested after detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force identified his residence as the one distributing the images and served a search warrant, the statement showed.

According to the statement, Carlson, an unemployed truck driver, admitted to collecting and possessing thousands of images and videos of children between 7 and 12 years old who were being sexually abused.

Carlson was arrested on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The investigation is ongoing. Police encourage anyone with information to call the Internet Crimes Against Children Detail at 623-466-1828 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
