Feds bust child porn ring; 52 arrested

Seventy-two people have been charged in an on-line global child pornography ring, a federal law enforcement source said Wednesday. The official said 52 of those charged have been arrested.

The charges stem from an investigation launched in December 2009 that targeted more than 500 individuals around the world allegedly participating in Dreamboard, a private members-only on-line bulletin board operated to promote pedophilia and encourage sexual abuse of very young children, according to the Justice Department.

    Please be respectful. the family members of these people are suffering too. They didnt ask for their loved ones to comit these crimes. Be polite to those victims and all involved in this case as well as other cases such as this one. This isnt a matter of politics, so keep all of the bias out of it.
    None of this is a joke, people's lives are going to change drasticly. Do what ever you can to suport those in need.
    Thank you.
