NZ child porn victims getting younger.

Children as young as a few months old are being targeted by New Zealand’s child pornography offenders, as they continue to seek even younger victims. According to the Department of Internal affairs, which prosecute child pornography cases, the average age of a victim is just five years old compared with 13 to 15 years old in the 1980s.

The average age of offenders has risen from between 27 and 30 to people in their early 40s. Internal Affairs Censorship Compliance Unit manager Steve O’Brien said the material is becoming more violent and the abuse of very young children more frequent.

“What’s really disturbing is that victims are getting younger – a lot of what we’re getting now features children from a few months to five years old.” He said the material produced in the 1980s when victims were much older, tried to show the act was “almost consensual”.

“But now it’s pretty horrible that anything goes. A lot of children in these images are clearly in distress and it’s very obvious the material has got a great deal more violent,” said Mr O’Brien.

    Unfortunately it’s like that all over… one video on YouTube shows interviews with various law enforcement officials, one of whom described a video of a man (term used very loosely) raping a baby so young that the umbilical cord was still attached… so that child was less than two weeks old.

    I firmly believe that there is a direct correlation between CP depicting more violent abuses and abuses perpetrated against younger victims and the fact that these ****stains congregate online, they pat each other on the back and encourage one another to continue abuse. They share stories and techniques on gaining access to victims.

    I’m also convinced that these people aren’t “sick”… an illness is generally treatable at the very least. These people don’t want treatment. They don’t want to be made “better”. They enjoy abusing children, and when they’re forced into therapy for it they will tell the therapist what they want to hear so they’ll get the “all clear”. They’re sadists. Plain and simple.
