    What I'd like to know is exactly how he was caught. In all the recent stories, all it says that it was found on his computer. So does that mean he took his PC to a repair shop and they found it and turned him in? Was he looking at porn on the Web or Chat/Usenet group and they tracked his IP and were granted a search warrant to seize and search his computer? I'd really like to know the rest of the story.

    What causes such creeps to get pleasure out of watching such acts portrayed by kids is beyond me. Its unbelievable that you hear so much about this kind of thing. In the old days we use to ram a hand down his neck all the way down to his manhood and pull it out. That didn't happen but its and idea.

    Define "Sexual Activities" of minors. Is it hugging, kissing, petting, nudity, genital touching, sexual intercourse, etc?

    Define "third degree" too, just what is that and what is 2nd and 1st degree?

    I don't like what my imagination brings to mind. Are the kids making porn movies?
