fsyed3at September 27,2015 This was difficult to sit through. As the video mentioned, the key is pro-active policing. There is a prohibition in international law, but it needs to be enforced as with the increasing accessibility of the Internet and related resources, it’s going to be easier for criminals to engage in such acts. It's impressive that a private group was able to catch 1000 men in two months, which means it would be infinitely effective with government resources.
jhilldog77at October 06,2015 Disturbing video and I had really no idea this was such an issue in our world today. Enforcing the laws here is a must and with major penalties as the video stated these criminals would think twice about signing on and performing "virtual rape." Awesome technology as well with the use of "Sweetie". This program is fantastic and should be expanded to catch the 750k+ criminals all over the world doing this unthinkable act.
zsesayat October 08,2015 Smart, I like that. This is the smartest thing in the world. These men are insane,and have mental health illness. They need to see a psychiatrist. One thousand sick people caught in two months? This is insane. A lot of men we see in the street act like they are normal but in reality, they have mental illness. I don't think putting them in jail would solve the problem because they are only going to be there for a couple of years and would be out again and start all over. I think they need to evaluated them for mental illness and administer medication that can help them realize that what they are doing is evil. just a thought
Beggsseat October 08,2015 This was a difficult video to watch. It is both unreal to think about the exploitation of children and the number of predators who are immediately ready to "chat" when a child from a poorer country goes online. The "Sweetie" program appears to be an effective way to gather information about the predators. Something has to change as more and more children from underdeveloped countries will be exploited as technology spreads throughout the globe. This sickens me, but hats off to those who pursue these criminals and may they have more resources and police support to significantly impact the demand.
bmanahan188at October 12,2015 Eye-opening video with some shocking numbers. I'm glad that there are organizations like the one in the video that are not just going after these criminals, but in sophisticated ways through Sweetie. Hopefully the legal roadblocks are removed soon and more support comes that allow even more sophisticated methods to develop.
