When you think you are having a bad day and depressed on the state of the country, the world and humanity. All you need do to see worse, is Google Alerts and certain key words like "attorney arrested". Today, we were made aware by such protocols of a vile and disgusting ring of offenders who traded in child pornography. Bullies of the highest order, delighting in the pain of the most innocents upon our earth.
Can any decent human being comprehend the magnitude of these offenses. Not only is it intolerable, that child porn exists and prevails throughout the world. Inexplicably and almost too hard to fathom is the fact that this nefarious ring of perpetrators traded in child pornography with massive pictures of "Violent" pornographic abuse of children.
No decent person would ever even wish to see the pictures as a juror. How would you get the nightmares out of your mind? It makes my blood boil for the horror endured by the children. It enrages me that the offenders are so profuse and with deliberate proliferation, that there are massive amounts of pictures out there on this issue - like a society. DAM DAM DAM. Where in the f&%$ does this stuff come from. As a non-violent person, I am provoked beyond the realms of civility. It simply cannot be possible that kids are suffering, incessantly, in this manner. DAM...! How does anyone even begin to go down this pathway and become a perverse human being like this?
NY District Attorney DA Vance Indictment (here)
It states in the indictment by the NY District Attorney Cyrus R Vance Jr., that 26 people are "Charge for Possession of Graphic Images and Videos of Child Sexual Assault". Stating that the perpetrators traded in the pictures vastly
“These defendants stockpiled images of the brutal rapes and sexual assaults of tens of thousands of real children,” said District Attorney Vance. “These victims were made to engage in physically and psychologically damaging sexual assaults that were recorded and disseminated online, feeding the appetites of pedophiles for more victims. Every time a new image is created, a child is victimized. And every time someone views these images, these children are re-victimized.
“The defendants in these cases traded images of child sexual assault the way that others trade baseball cards,” District Attorney Vance continued. “They were curators of their collections, who carefully labeled, sorted and shared their cache with others. At least one of these defendants showed these graphic images of violent sexual assaults to other children in order to desensitize them. In at least two cases, the defendants expressed a desire to begin sexually assaulting children.
Normally, I would be torn about posting this tool's picture on the story. However, the fact of the matter is, pleading not guilty and most likely coming out with a story later, that he was doing research for a sting operation - or some such other - simply does not excuse the fact that he was viewing these pictures. Pictured right is Moshe Gerstein, born 2/5/1976. The indictment stipulates that he is charged with "promoting" the offensive materials and possessing such as well. He was an attorney with Gibson Dunn. The DA would not do a frivolous charge without concrete evidence. The Gibson Dunn firm has already relieved Gerstein from the firm (hope it was in a nano-second).
A Harvard grad, with one of the largest law firms in the country. There was also a substitute teacher in New York and a time when they sent the pictures to a teenager in Canada. For what end I don't even desire to know.
This stuff stinks - it enrages me that they were a ring and the victims harmed should be able to take every living dime these poor excuses for human beings have. A case like this almost makes you lose all sympathy you ever had about the over reach of sexual offender registries and black listings.
See story links (here) stating;
Some of those arrested had jobs that put them in contact with children, including Joshua Ruiz, 32, who worked as a substitute teacher in New York public schools.
Glen Barfield, a 39-year-old architect, was accused of exchanging images of pedophilia with a 16-year-old boy living in Canada.
The authorities said they seized three computers at the home of Moshe Gerstein, a 35-year-old lawyer, containing about 5,000 images of child pornography.
There are plenty of Google stories about this item
DAM DAM DAM these people......
This Diary was HR'd by one who simply could have stated a remark. We are not finding guilt before trial - we are discussing the very fact that such evidence exists.
I N T O L E R A B L E - that even 1 picture of such things exists
the fact that there are THOUSANDS means humanity has gone NUTS.
The NY DA said that
Three computers and an external hard drive containing a collection of approximately 5,000 images of child sexual assault were seized in GERSTEIN’s home. GERSTEIN is charged with Promoting a Sexual Performance by a Child and Possessing a Sexual Performance by a Child, according to his indictment.

The attorney Gerstein had 3 computers and an external HDD to carry over 5000 pictures of child porn with him.
To HR me for putting up the NEWS pic - when that evidence exists is ABSURD
For the bantering horde - pie fighters - with their illogical and false remarks on what this article states. We, (those with great common sense and extensive fairness of mind) simply ask you qwirky do-nut throwers one simple, straight forward - thing.
What time tomorrow are you giving one of these guys the right to babysit your kids?
