CEOP: More Resources To Fight Indecent Images
"Deputy Chief Executive of CEOP, Andy Baker, said:
“Behind every case of possession of indecent images lies the potential that contact sexual offences are taking place.
“No stone should be left unturned in order to identify and protect those children and CEOP will continue to work to support police and child protection organisations to do just that.”"

Government again uses paedophile paranoia to justify Internet snooping Law
"Everyone is a suspect...except ministers
On the day the beleaguered Child Exploitation & Online Protection agency (CEOP) has led nationwide arrests for downloading child porn, had only this morning released a report effectively asking for more money, warned of a connection between child porn and ‘contact offending’ and had released a ‘dramatic’ video showing a raid on a porn suspect’s house, it was no coincidence that the Home Secretary, Theresa May also confirmed that she would push ahead with laws to monitor everyone’s email and Internet usage, citing ‘paedophiles’ as one of the main excuses for doing so.
It is perhaps not surprising that CEOP is making such a noise as despite protestations, it will soon be consumed by the new National Crime Agency, something it has been fighting against for years.
TheOpinionSite.org suggests that all these events, actions and announcements have been deliberately coordinated; designed to lend weight to the government’s new, highly intrusive, Internet – snooping laws and to con a trusting public into believing that they are necessary when in reality, they are not."
Comment: Coincidences eh?
