How to prevent child sexual abuse

Stop Child Sexual Abuse

BATON ROUGE, LA — Child porn is not an easy subject to talk about, but Noel Andrus thinks it’s time we all start looking at the bigger picture.

“You hear of gateway drugs, people getting into gateway drugs that lead to bigger harder things, and it’s kind of a good thing to compare it to,” said Andrus. “There’s a term ‘grooming’ that you’re familiar with that a lot of sexual perpetrators will use to children to warm up to the actual physical act of sexual abuse.”

Andrus works at the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center. She helps families of sexually abused children deal with the pain of abuse.

“It turns everything upside-down for a moment and to come in and have someone really just listen to everything you have to say, and for the child to have that moment to have their time to tell their story,” said Andrus.

The Center works with other agencies like Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana to work on protecting the children in our state. Executive Director Amanda Brunson said since child porn is a form of sexual abuse, it’s something we all need to pay attention to.

Brunson said it’s up to each one of us to prevent child abuse.

“Learn the facts and minimize opportunities, so that means really looking to eliminate all opportunities for your child to be with one adult and one child, or your child to be alone with an older youth. Also, it’s important to talk to your kids about their bodies, about sex, about boundaries and pay attention to adults that may be paying extra attention to your child,” Brunson explained.

One out of every 7 children are abused by the age of 18, and one out of every 3 girls will be sexually assaulted by age 18.

Anonymous to target pedophiles

‘We are declaring war against you, the terrorists.’

Hacking group Anonymous to target paedophiles using the ‘dark web’ to carry out child abuse.

In the wake of the Westminster child abuse scandal and allegations of establishment cover-ups, hackers Anonymous have decided to expose international paedophile networks.

The hacking group says it is planning on collecting evidence against international paedophile rings and their abuse of children to find the links between different operations and ultimately bring the perpetrators to justice.

Named ‘Operation Death Eaters‘ after Voldemort’s band of evil followers in the Harry Potter series, the group is calling for a global effort in exposing the paedophile rings through the power of social media.

This newest Anonymous campaign comes just weeks after the group declared war on jihadists in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.

Now, they are building a grassroots database of paedophile cases from across the world in order to ultimately expose an ‘international cult’ of child sex abuse.

A Tumblr set up to promote the campaign states: ‘The objective of opdeatheaters is an independent, international, victim-led tribunal/ inquiry into trafficking and paedosadist industry. ‘What is our first step? We need meticulously researched and clearly documented examples of high level complicity in the industry, obstruction of justice and coverups to show the need for independent inquiries.’

Hacktivist group Anonymous plans to expose paedophiles

The UK version of the site states: ‘The CSA inquiry in the UK is an attempt to depict a powerful cult as a string of isolated incidents of “sex abuse”. ‘The complicit UK media is running a huge propaganda campaign to conflate torture and murder with “paedophilia” and call for understanding of “paedophilia”. ‘This is not a group of sad paedophiles who need help and understanding. This is a torture and death cult with a powerful global human trafficking network. ‘WE DEMAND THAT TORTURE AND MURDER BE CALLED TORTURE AND MURDER, NOT SEX. This is an international cult and needs to be investigated as one, not simply as an endless series of isolated incidents confined to the UK. ‘We call upon our comrades globally to help us investigate and demand an end to the trafficking networks with arrests at the top not just the bottom. ‘WE DEMAND AN END TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND ABUSE COMPLICITY WORLDWIDE.’

The Independent refers to an Anonymous statement which claims: ‘The Westminster paedophile ring is one of many cases where Operation DeathEaters has actively pursued and sought truth, in order to end the hideous crimes concealed behind the British elite. ‘In fear of these investigations being bungled over time, the operation’s objectives are clear and simple: source public information before it disappears, push for independent enquiry, and offer support to witnesses and the victims where needed.’

Anonymous also cites a number of high profile cases and investigations in the UK including Jimmy Savile, MP Cyril Smith,the claims regarding Elm Guest House and the now-defunct Paedophile International Exchange

Tens of millions of images of child abuse are believed to be circulating online on the ‘dark web’, many showing such graphic abuse that the media is turning a blind eye to the problem, experts warned this week.

Figures from the European Commission’s Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online suggest 50,000 new child abuse images are uploaded each year – of which more than 70 per cent are images of children under the age of 10.

Heather Marsh, author of Binding Chaos and who works with Anonymous, said: ‘Our central objective is to establish independent, internationally linked, victim-led inquiries into high level complicity, obstruction of justice and cover-ups in the paedosadism and child trafficking industries.  ‘The premise behind OpDeathEaters is to expose high level complicity, obstruction of justice and cover up in the paedosadist industry in order to show the need for independent inquiries.’

On January 10 Anonymous activists released a video condemning the gun attack at French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo which left 12 people dead.

In the clip, which was uploaded to the group’s Belgian YouTube account, a figure wearing the group’s Guy Fawkes mask and a hood says in French in an electronically-distorted voice: ‘We are declaring war against you, the terrorists.’

Sitting at a desk and reading from a piece of paper, the figure says the group will track down and close all accounts on social networks related to terrorists to avenge those killed.

Anonymous has previously carried out cyber attacks on websites belonging to the Government, as well as those of corporate and religious organisations.

In 2012 Anonymous crippled the Home Office’s website by flooding it with huge amounts of internet traffic.

ANONYMOUS – THE DIGITAL ROBIN HOOD OR JUST CYBER TERRORISTS?

Hacker group Anonymous has been linked to online attacks around the world aimed at punishing governments for policies of which the hackers disapprove.

Members are known as ‘Anons‘ and are distinguished by their Guy Fawkes masks.

The group are seen as anything from digital Robin Hoods to cyber terrorists for their hacking campaigns against government agencies, child pornography sites and the Klu Klux Klan.

In 2008 the online community staged a series of protests, pranks, and hacks Church of Scientology as part if its ‘Project Chanology.’

Later targets of Anonymous ‘hacktivism’ included government agencies of the US, Israel, Tunisia, Uganda, and others, copyright protection agencies; the Westboro Baptist Church; and corporations such as PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and Sony.

In 2013 they declared war on secretive ‘chat sites’ used by paedophiles to trade images.

Last November they hacked into the Twitter account of the Ku Klux Klan after the white supremacist group distributed flyers threatening ‘lethal force’ protesters in Ferguson.

Dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the US, UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey.

Firefighter accused of Sexual Abuse of 4-month-old

Child Predator
Caleb Stuart Lofald

Duluth, MN – A Duluth firefighter is accused of sexually abusing a 4-month-old child and surreptitiously recording a 6-year-old child in various stages of undress, according to charges filed Thursday.

The charges against 32-year-old Caleb Stuart Lofald of Hermantown are detailed in a criminal complaint released by the St. Louis County Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors charged Lofald with four crimes, including second-degree criminal sexual conduct, possession of child pornography and interference with privacy of a minor.

The charges came after police executed search warrants at Lofald’s home and at the Duluth Heights fire station in November.
The charges allege that investigators retrieved photos of a hand touching the genitals of the 4-month-old girl.

In another case, prosecutors said Lofald secretly recorded both a 6-year-old male and an adult female undressing and showering in the guest room at his home.

Lofald is being held at the St. Louis County Jail and will appear in court today.

8CHAN DOMAIN SEIZED OVER CHILD ABUSE IMAGES

It’s time to stop the Abuse of Our Children

Search terms “Jailbait chan” and “Jailbait imageboards” used

Last week, the imageboard site 8chan.co was brought offline for a sustained period of over five days due to a prolonged DDoS attack. On Monday, it returned only to go back offline for a much different reason: its domain had been seized.

Site founder Fredrick Brennan posted an e-mail on Monday that he says came from the site’s Bahamas-based registrar, Internet.bs. The note explained that the domain 8chan.co had been put “on hold” due to “child abuse” content appearing on the site.

This followed a swell of complaint e-mails sent over the weekend to Cloudflare, the “pass-through” content delivery network that had been operating 8chan’s servers. Some users were upset over content posted on 8chan by its imageboard users and directed their complaints to Cloudflare. “Please take appropriate measures to stop your customer from abusing your services and enabling illegal content,” one complainant wrote after posting links to 11 8chan boards that contained underage “girls and boys shown in sexual poses.”

In accordance to Cloudflare’s abuse-report policy, the company responded to complaints by forwarding them back to 8chan’s administrative address—essentially telling an alleged offender who blew a whistle and how they did so. Brennan responded to those complaints by reposting them, complete with the complainants’ full names and e-mail addresses for 8chan and Twitter users to see.

As a result, the complainant quoted above, who used his real name and e-mail address when writing to Cloudflare, was subsequently “doxxed” by imageboard users, and his personal and private contact details were posted on 8chan-friendly boards.

As for the domain, it continues to be parked at “parkingcrew.net”.

Brennan stated that he has been unable to reclaim or transfer 8chan.co for the time being. He used his Twitter account to point out how the site currently redirected, for some users, to a splash site hosted by Internet.bs that contained apparently auto-generated search terms such as “Jailbait chan” and “Jailbait imageboards.” Those seemed to run contrary to the complaining reason for the takedown.

Additionally, Brennan said Internet.bs hadn’t pointed to any specific child-abuse content in its takedown notice. (Worth noting, this isn’t the first time Internet.bs has been scrutinized over how it reacted to user complaints.)

Just before Monday’s domain seizure, 8chan had come back online in a variety of limited and full flavors. Site founder Fredrick Brennan cobbled together alternate server options along with new imageboard links hosted by the site’s Japanese sibling 2ch.net. It was at some of these new locales that the whistleblowers’ doxxing occurred.

Savvy users can still find those and other operational 8chan boards by typing an IP address directly. Our last report about 8chan’s DDoS-related outage detailed many of the enemies and detractors the site had accumulated since launching in 2013 as a less-regulated version of similar imageboard site 4chan.

Doctor Charged With Child Porn

Indian Health Services doctor facing child porn charges

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Authorities say an Indian Health Services physician has been arrested on federal child pornography charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 61-year-old Thomas Murray is accused of transporting, distributing and possessing visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Murray’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. It’s not immediately clear whether he has an attorney.

Federal prosecutors say Murray moved to New Mexico in October to take a job as a general practitioner with Indian Health Services at Acoma Pueblo.

The FBI began investigating Murray in December after receiving a report from the state attorney general’s office. Investigators uncovered an IP address linked to Murray’s home that was allegedly being used to download and distribute pornographic images.

The FBI arrested Murray and searched his home on Monday.
