The Internet and Your Child

The following is excerpted from Seducers Among Our Children by Investigator Sergeant, Patrick Crough.

I have met child victims who communicated with their offender over the Internet right under their parents’ noses. Because chat room language is cryptic and hard to decipher, it allows the victim to become involved, and eventually seduced, by a predator. Many times the child will be lured out of the safety of their home to be sexually offended.

Once a man gets hooked on pornography he needs something more graphic for the same thrill effect. I truly believe he unwittingly invites a demon to take over his life. Eventually, his appetite becomes insatiable.

I have interviewed child predators who claimed they were spawned as a result of their addiction to Internet pornography. Some of the predators I interrogated told me that when they began viewing child pornography they knew deep down in their heart what they were doing was very wrong; but they had lost control and were unable to stop. It should be noted that when a man is viewing adult porn sites, he is constantly attacked by pop-ups, attempting to lure him to a different porn site. Some of these pop-ups are for child porn sites.
