The Blogging Contest And The Web Cam Controversy

With all that has gone on in my life the past few weeks with computers dying, the S.W.A.T. team and all, my creative juices are not flowing for the last two postings of the blogging contest, and I hate my third posting. I am sure I'll put it all together and Paul who is the judge will like what I write as will the rest of you. There is still time to sign up on Kapgar's site. Remember I will be posting this Monday to Friday as someone famous.

I have had an inner strife with myself to do a posting about the young gentleman who testified in front of a congressional committee about solicitation of underage children for sex with web cams this week. I agree that what the young man did was brave and courageous and he had more balls then what I do. I find myself having more questions then answers about this young man.

1. The authorities were given 1500 names and only two arrests made?

2. If this young man received money from those perverts, what did he do with the money?

3. I know he was first solicited when he was 13, why did he wait so long to say anything about it when he turned old enough to know it was wrong? Say about 16 or 17. And for a 13 year old to build a porn web site and make money, it seems to me like the whole story isn't there?

4. Where were the parents during this time period? If he was making money and buying things why didn't the parents ask how he could afford the items and where they were coming from? Did they just turn a blind eye?

I am not saying what those men did to that young man wasn't wrong, for it was. I am not defending those men. I think all those men should be arrested. Not having seen his testimony, I keep wondering if there is more here then what he is informing us, and what was his real motives for turning in his clients? Did he just become too old and wasn't making the same money? Is it a revenge thing, I just don't know, and why did he now just come forward with this information?

  • I saw the interview on Today as well and there was quite a bit of ambiguity.

    I think it was probably a lot simpler than you think. The kid probably just set up a webcam with password access. To acquire a password, you simply needed to PayPal him some money. All you need for a PayPal account is a bank account and many kids have that as a result of parents attempting to teach their kids some sense of fiscal responsibility.

    I don't know that he had a whole porn site established. I just don't see that happening.

    And I, too, am disappointed about the lack of arrests despite all the names provided.

  • Kevin- Thanks for the update. Didn't you find it funny that this story came out right before they busted the dude from homeland security?
