Recently a man was brought to trial for possesing what police called the largest child porn collection they've ever seen. The 'man', a wealthy dentist, owned something in the range of 500,000 pictures, countless VHS tapes, dvds and reels. His punishment? 9 Months, house arrest. The justification for such a short sentence? Possession of materials is not as vile as abuse and production of materials. But isn't it? Supply has to meet demand and it's quite obvious from the size of this animal's collection that he helped fuel the market which in turn destroyed countless lives. Where's the justice? I'm not even sure what my point is other than to say whatever system is in place, it's a mockery. The more cases end like this, the more these animals will thrive. It's in moments like these, heinous crimes like this, that the law of Hammurabi becomes most appealing.
