Child porn laws and underage sex laws have caused inumerous deaths and suffering.
- Men are too afraid to help lost infants, who in some instances have died (Did Pedophilia Hysteria Cause Child’s Death?)
- Lots of men have committed suicide after chatting up minors on the internet or after being accused of child porn possession (Child porn suspect suicide tally hits 32; Five committed suicide over a short time span.)
- Many men get gang raped in prison, become life long sex slaves, are severely beaten, and contract deadly AIDS for simple possession of photos. Criminal prison rapist gangs are especially ruthless with “Child rapists” (who mostly are in jail for consensual sex or mere consensual fondling)
- and now this insanity: airline safety will be compromised
Airline safety sacrificed due to insane child porn laws
Planes may get blown up & passengers may get killed, due to child porn law compliance
Airplanes might get highjacked, might get blown up, or flown into towers. That is less important then silly child porn laws. One the one side the danger of many people’s violent death. On the other hand the danger of what? Some security official getting turned on when seeing x-ray photos? Who will get protected?
Kids May Be Barred From ‘Nude’ Airport Scanner
Manchester Airport has admitted it might be illegal for children to use its new “nude” security scanner when it comes into operation at the end of the month.
The full body scanner, which was launched in a blaze of publicity, reveals everything under clothing and shows a clear outline of the passenger’s genitals.
The airport has now said that no under-18s will be allowed to use the device unless it can clarify the law on indecent images of children.
Manchester Airport’s head of external communications, Russell Craig, said they would be taking advice before starting the trial at the end of the month. Source: see title link

But not only children (under 18) should be exempt, but nobody should be scanned. Airline security be damned:
What’s more, the group claims the machines, among other things, violate the federal Video Voyeurism Prevent Act, which protects against capturing improper images that violate one’s privacy.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a recent statement that the deployment is “enhancing our capability to detect and disrupt threats of terrorism across the nation.”
Child Porn prosecution causes suffering, watching child porn is harmless
Almost all so called “child porn” in reality is “adolescent nudity” or consensual “sexual activities” of sexually active teenagers. We are not not aware of any deaths due to child porn production. Most child porn is totally harmless, like adolescents taking their own photos, or formerly legal 16 year old sex films made legally in Holland 30 years ago.
On the other hand there was a death in the production of the following documentary: Beating Death Of Derrion Albert,16,Caught On Video as described in Nude adolescent photos: a Crime. Videos of lynching, killing, beating adolescents are legal Prime Time TV.
Jack B. Weinstein: A reasonable judge
opposing cruel child porn jail terms (!must read!)
Finally, a few sensible judges. The first glimpse of reason in the witch hunt. Jack B. Weinstein against the cruel child porn witch hunt!
Defiant Judge Takes On Child Pornography Law
In his 43-year career as a federal judge, Jack B. Weinstein has come to be identified by his efforts to combat what he calls “the unnecessary cruelty of the law.”[…]
Judge Weinstein, who sits in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, has twice thrown out convictions that would have ensured that the man spend at least five years behind bars. He has pledged to break protocol and inform the next jury about the mandatory prison sentence that the charges carry. And he recently declared that the man, who is awaiting a new trial, did not need an electronic ankle bracelet because he posed “no risk to society.”
There is little public sympathy for collectors of child pornography. Yet across the country, an increasing number of federal judges have come to their defense, criticizing changes to sentencing laws that have effectively quadrupled their average prison term over the last decade.
Last week, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit vacated a 20-year child pornography sentence by ruling that the sentencing guidelines for such cases, “unless applied with great care, can lead to unreasonable sentences.” The decision noted that the recommended sentences for looking at pictures of children being sexually abused sometimes eclipse those for actually sexually abusing a child.
Judge Weinstein has gone to extraordinary lengths to challenge the strict punishments, issuing a series of rulings that directly attack the mandatory five-year prison sentence faced by defendants charged with receiving child pornography.
“I don’t approve of child pornography, obviously,” he said in an interview this week. But, he also said, he does not believe that those who view the images, as opposed to producing or selling them, present a threat to children.
“We’re destroying lives unnecessarily,” he said. “At the most, they should be receiving treatment and supervision.” […}
“I don’t see Judge Weinstein as a judge,” Mr. Polizzi said during an interview as tears rolled down his face. “I see him as my father. He helps people. He doesn’t destroy lives the way the prosecutor has. He’s the one who is going to set me free from the court.”
And Judge Weinstein seems to talk about REAL child porn, 5 year olds engaging in sex. Convicting a guy for watching 10-17 year old girls dancing provocatively, wearing leotards (in Knox vs US), or for inadvertently downloading photos of 17 year old nudes is even more disproportionally cruel.
It is amazing that judge Weinstein has not been arrested, deposed, assassinated yet. He really goes against the grain of the entire child porn witch hunt.

“Just because I like pictures of 14 year old girls
doesn’t mean I prowl shopping malls to rape and kill”
1) Just because I like the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movie
doesn’t mean I will chop up children with a chain saw
2) Just because I like the “Terminator”
doesn’t mean I will machine-gun children or adults
