LONDON (AP) — A British judge sentenced a prolific pedophile to 32 years in prison Monday in what the U.K.’s national law enforcement agency described as a watershed moment for coming to grips with technology’s ability to support and spread depravity.
Geophysicist Matthew Falder admitted to 137 offenses, including blackmail, voyeurism and encouraging the rape of a child. Posing as a female artist looking to do life drawings, Falder, 29, lured victims into sending him humiliating images, many of which ended up on the dark web. He approached 300 people worldwide, some of them teens advertising for babysitting or dog walking jobs online.

“Somehow, like with Harvey Weinstein, this doesn’t scratch the surface, and the establishment will be clapping their dirty mits a diversionary scapegoat has been thrown to the dogs.”

Impossible! Oh, wait…
They’re called the Little Barbies.
Children, young girls—some as young as 9 years old—are being bought and sold for sex in America. The average age for a young woman being sold for sex is now 13 years old.
This is America’s dirty little secret.
According to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, “Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”
Sex trafficking—especially when it comes to the buying and selling of young girls—has become big business in America, the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns.
As investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins notes, “It’s become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns. A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day.”
Consider this: every two minutes, a child is exploited in the sex industry.
A 38-year-old man in Chicago is attempting to escape punishment for sexually assaulting three young girls by claiming he’s a “9-year-old trapped in an adult’s body.”
This is where we’re at now as a society.
From the Chicago Tribune:
A Chicago man accused of sexually assaulting three young girls told prosecutors he considered himself a boy in a man’s body, according to Cook County court documents.
Joseph Roman, 38, is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault stemming from repeated attacks on three girls who were 6 to 8 years old at the time, according to prosecutors. Roman was a friend of the girls’ families at the time of the attacks between 2015 and January of this year.
Hundreds of Roma children are being used by family members as pickpockets, burglars or even sex slaves in the Netherlands, various experts and aid workers said to Nieuwsuur. The police responded that 400 detectives work on hundreds of human trafficking cases per year, including the exploitation of Roma children. Police officers will get extra training this year on recognizing the signs of human trafficking.
The aid workers and experts told Nieuwsuur that the Dutch government and authorities do not provide adequate protection for these Roma children. If such a child is arrested by the police, he or she is often returned to a family member which only exploits the child again. An internal National Police and Public Prosecution report, in the hands of Nieuwsuur, confirms this image. “There is insufficient knowledge and awareness among the police and judiciary that crimes committed by minors can involve human trafficking”, that report reads, according to the broadcaster.
Pope Francis is now attacking the credibility of child sex abuse victims in a shocking move made at the end of a trip to Chile in which he had hoped to “heal” the wounds of said abuse.
That’s right, Pope Francis ended his trip by publicly defending a bishop who victims have accused of covering up widespread pedophilia in the country.
According to a report by the Associated Press, Francis made the shocking comments in a discussion about Rev. Fernando Karadima who has been found guilty of sexually abusing a slew of minors as a member of the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis accused victims of Chile’s most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.
Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are “all calumny.”
The pope’s remarks drew shock from Chileans and immediate rebuke from victims and their advocates. They noted the accusers were deemed credible enough by the Vatican that it sentenced Karadima to a lifetime of “penance and prayer” for his crimes in 2011.
SCOTLAND Yard closed down investigations into a canal-based paedophile ring, claims a police whistleblower.
● Police chiefs pulled the plug on his inquiry which revealed scores of sex offenders living on canal barges.
● A pimp was free to groom teenage girls because a magistrate was an alleged client of one girl.
● Vice squad officers were ordered not to arrest underage prostitutes.
● Bosses made threats over his report on a London child prostitution ring involving “someone connected to the music department of the BBC”.
Pope Francis has finally said he deeply regrets Chilean priests’ involvement in a series of sex crimes against children.
Upon the start of his visit to Santiago, the capital of Chile, on Tuesday, the pontiff said he felt he was “bound to express my pain and shame,” some seven years after reports emerged that some Chilean pastors had committed sexual abuse against children in their care.

“Does anyone have any idea if there are any countries left in the world where the Roman Catholic Church HASN’T perpetrated a child sex scandal?”
