Watch What This Make-Believe Girl Means To 1,000 Pedophiles

I came across this video while browsing the internet and found it so interesting, especially in moral and ethical terms. It delves into the issue of child pornography and pedophiles. Men from wealthy countries are taking advantage of young children, even as young as six years old, in other countries such as the Philippines. They target these children and sexually violate them online.

This video was showing how with certain technologies and strategies, it isn’t difficult to track down these pedophiles. They create a virtual child named “Sweetie” that poses as a real person to chat with these grown men and gather information about them. There are tons and tons of pedophiles doing this in the world but close to none are being pursued, let alone punished for it. Maybe this new form of tracking them will help protect these children and diminish these types of online acts by sexual predators.
