In June, 2013 police from the Toronto Police Service - Child Exploitation Unit were conducting a covert on-line investigation.

During the investigation, the suspect sent images of child sexual abuse to the undercover officer.

It is quite alarming when you read the statistics on the number of vermin around the world involved in this activity. I also read there is no cure :(

see what happens when you take a child , put him in a residential school , and abuse the heck out of him....then people wonder why nish are always cryin foul!!!!
Jerdatty 12/5/2013 10:33:57 AM Report

Wait. Kweveye, are you saying that this disgusting pig's actions are because of the "White Man"? The accused is 30 years old. Now, if I recall correctly, residential schools weren't around in the 80s. Furthermore, the accused chose to do what he did. Accountability. Such a strange thing these days. Always easiest to blame someone or something else ( and that goes for everyone, not just natives). If our judicial system would hold people accountable for their actions rather than let them use the "It's not my fault" defense, our country would be much better off.

Anyone who chooses to participate in anything that exploits children deserves a LIFETIME of hell. There is zero excuse for it. Their victims don't forget what happened after the accused "pays their debt to society", isn't that right Brandon Gough?

Uhh, this guy is white. He grew up in the Soo and went to the Dunn.

Yep, the guy is white. All you bleeding heart natives can lay off. White dude, went to the Dunn. Now, lets deal with the real issue, the guy is a peddy. Nothing to do with Native issues or rights. Move on and whine elsewhere.

wow, another un needed racial comment. its unrealted comments like that one that cause massive reaction that is uneeded. fact remains, this individual is sick, no matter of race, gender, height WHATEVER someone wants to blame it on.. there IS no excuse. so stop playin the race card. we're all tired of it. if society is supposed to be accepting of "you" then dont cause a scene and cry "hate" everytime something happens. it gets quite annoying after a while!
IN MY OPINION!
