Among the ring’s customers was Edathy, who is said to have ordered material from the site between 2005 and 2010. The material consisted of pictures of naked boys assumed to be between nine and 14, in various poses, but not involved in sexual activity. The possession of such pictures is not illegal in Germany.
Human Stupidity has trouble understanding, or explaining to children, why photos of 100% legal acts, or cartoons of such acts, can be such a terrible crime. On the other hand, videos of terrorist beheadings, made exactly for the impact on the viewer and the publicity, are legal.
Germany’s Child Protection Agency demands that any commerce with pictures of naked children must be penalized. Justice Minister Heiko Maas also comes out in favor of stricter laws.
A huge international police inquiry because of a few photos of naked boys, which happens to be legal in Germany. Have we no other problems? Millions of obese and sedentary children have their health and future destroyed. The Euro crisis causes massive unemployment and might lead to civil war. And we care about a few nude photos?
Watch this video, one would never think that these were simple nude photos, no sexual activity or abuse.
