Legal Implications

From an educator’s prospective, since this is unlikely to happen at school, there is little we can do legally.   Some of the same legal battles that are affecting child pornography are also affecting the ability of law enforcement to control the safety of children.  The Illinois Attorney General’s Office was quotes recently as saying, “It is common knowledge in the business of pedophiles and child pornography to go to your public library and download it because it is there…When there is communication online, there is an IP address.  I can’t tell you how many times we trace that IP address back to public libraries.”  This was in reference to the Children’s Internet Protection Act of 2000 that would require libraries to use filtering software.  This law is currently being challenged and an injunction has been filed to prevent libraries from using filters.

There are many undercover policemen and even citizen volunteers who work to protect children from pedophile by trying to attract them.  Since pedophiles can use the Internet anonymously, so can the police.  They must be very careful, though, as they must be able to prove the pedophile has the intent to follow through and break a law.  They must not do anything that can be called entrapment, which is a very fine line to walk.  Pedophiles break no laws in talking to children.  They must act for it to be illegal, by trying to meet with the child or sending them illegal material, such as photographs.  Pedophilia is strongly tied to child pornography, as pedophiles are the main users.  They often are caught sending child pornography to the children they are communicating with.  This kind of activity must be reported at once.  Sometimes when these photo are turned in, police are able to solve missing children cases as well.
