The link is to a google search and has links to numerous local news media detailing arrests in their areas.


I've only heard of one couple in Kansas so far.

If they're guilty, it's great that they've been arrested.  And I hope they are, because publishing their names just ruined their lives, even if they are guilty of nothing.

Pray that they got it right this time - there were 100% innocent people who committed suicide from shame last time an operation this big happened.

Google Operation Ore for the nasty details.

From what I've read, the ones identified were either caught with child porn on their computers or were identified from photos or videos of themselves involved in raping or molesting children.  Innocent until proven guilty for certain, but lots of time and effort went into identifying the accused and building a case.

And we all know that "not guilty" and "innocent" are not the same thing.  "Not Guilty" often means that the Counsel for the Defense is better than the Prosecutor at their job.

How does anyone know if someone is 100% innocent?

Really google the case.

Some of the people were very very clearly the victims of credit card fraud and there was no evidence of wrong doing other than that produced by an expert witness who was later convicted of fraud for events surrounding the case.

I'm actually in favour of taking a very (very!) hard line on people involved in sex crimes. All the worse when the police work associated with very high profile cases is laughably poor.
