Canadian police smash child porn ring

Sixty-six Australians out of 320 people have been arrested after Canadian police cracked what they said was the most horrific child abuse ring they have ever seen.  Among them were teachers, police, doctors and priests.  Canadian police expect more arrests will be made as the investigations continue.

Brian Way, a 42 year old Toronto man paid others to film children being subjected to despicable sexual acts, some as young as two years old.  Most were from eastern European countries but five children came from Western Australia and one child lived in the ACT.

So what will happen to these vermin?  Judges have a reputation for going soft on these men and it's hard to understand why. Convictions rarely include jail time and sentences are often converted to probation for first-time offenders.

Lynton John Moore from WA is a 30 year old former detective. His lawyer Mark Andrews said his client was from a deeply religious family and had already suffered enough.  He had lost his reputation, his standing in the community and prison would be very hard for a former policeman to endure.

The judge said he would have to watch the material before passing sentence but let's see what happens, he's due to be sentenced in Perth Court next Friday and if he does give him jail time, judges must have had a serious change of heart.

NSW Bureau of Statistics and Research figures show it has been five times easier to go to prison for stealing a car than it is for looking at a small child being sexually debased. Only 15 out of 100 NSW men charged in Australia's biggest child pornography crackdown are in jail, even though they were found guilty.

Police documents show prosecutors won 79 of the 102 cases - 11 were sentenced to jail but most had them suspended and others were given fines and bonds.

Once again, our Judiciary has let us down badly and there's not a damn thing we can do about it.  As the world gets sicker and sicker, judges get softer and softer on these men who are the lowest form of human life.
