    Sorry, I don't know what I expect them to do, I wish there was a simple answer and I HATE that people like that are walking free. I am glad I don't have the resources to track them down, because who knows what I'd do if I found them.

    It is such a sad thing, I really hope that it can be tracked and stopped. It is disgusting and horrible. Hugs OP

    Facebook breeds that kind of crap.
    Which is why I don't and will never use it.

    Slightly off topic but you know what job I always feel terrible for - the police men and women who go onto forums and pose as kids/teenagers to try and catch some of the perpetrators of this stuff.
    Can you imagine how much they job would f*** with your head?
    How could you go home and be happy and normal when you had been doing that all day
    I have the utmost admiration for police who work in this area, I'm certainly NOT disgusted with them

    I really feel for the foster carers who care for these children (as well as the lawyers involved in their cases) only to have to watch all their hard work unravel when a court either returns the child to their family or a relative. I knew some people who worked on the House of Horrors case in Adelaide where 2 women (mothers) and 4 men were prosecuted for child cruelty and abuse - if you knew where all of those kids were now you would just cry. Meanwhile, one of the mothers is receiving visits from her kids - forced by Families SA - because she wants them back....and with all the bloody do-gooders around she'll probably succeed. Meanwhile, she is afforded the protection of the system in that whenever the case is mentioned, none of her details or these goings on ever are and the public have a right to know. OP, I often wring my hands over child protection or lack of given by the system.

    Naturally, I am vehemently against reunification in cases such as this. But perhaps best left for another thread.

    The other thing is that it takes a lot of nerd power to track down some of these people (who post such trash). They can use proxy IP addresses and posting from mobiles can further make them more difficult to track.

    I would suggest the police have things on the go to try to track this sort of stuff. As a PP suggested, I think a lot of their stings happen from posing themselves as participants and waiting for the posters to bite.

    Omg so sad ill never ever ever understand how an adult can ever think it's ok to behave this disgusting behaviour. What jolly could you possibly ever get. I don't get it. It makes me feel sick to the bone.

    OP I'm sorry you had to witness it :especially after everything you have endured. How awful
    I hope whoever the culprits are from overseas are caught and ripped to sheds.

    Pedophiles, pornos and sickos existed long before Facebook did (and the Internet for that matter).

    As someone who does use it, I have never seen it. I think it would be quite rare due to the illegality and most people's obvious disgust at things like that, let alone the fact that the system of posting photos and "sharing" is quite public and exposed unlike file sharing systems and the like.I stick to family and good friends that I know in real life...it's great for seeing photos of my cousins kids interstate, and keeping up with what friends have been up to between face to face contact.

    It's far from a perfect system, but if used properly it doesn't deserve to be characterized as a place full of child porn. Paedophiles have always used any medium they can get their hands on but is is not that medium (in this case FB that is "breeding" or creating the paedophiles..they were around long before FB was created.

    It's probable that the "friend" who had it on their wall didn't actually post/share the page. I've had things pop up on my fb page that say "[my name] likes raunchy xxx video", when I most certainly didn't. Then when I've tried to remove the post I couldn't, so just reported to fb.
    Child abusers & pornographers should be rounded up & tortured to death. It makes me sick that these types of monsters exist. I'm sorry that you went through it op.
