A worldwide porn bust has led to the arrest of f 348 people and saved the lives of 386 children around the world. The operation was called Project Spade and has been in the works since 2010. The project started in Canada but involved Interpol in more than 50 countries including Australia, Spain, Mexico, Norway and Greece.

“This operation shows that international police cooperation works. Despite large amounts of material and that this is time-consuming work, this shows that the Internet is not a safe haven for crimes against children,” Norwegian police spokesman Bjoern-Erik Ludvigsen said in a statement.

The investigation began with a Toronto man accused of running a child pornography film distribution company. Investigators executed a search warrant at Way’s company and home, seizing about 1,000 pieces of evidence, including computers and DVDs. They also went undercover and started making purchases from his website.

Way was charged with 24 offenses, including child pornography and is currently incarcerated. Police have also called his film distribution company, Azov Films, a criminal organization.

Over 100 people were arrested in Canada and 76 in the U.S. Others were arrested in other countries. Overall Project Spade has saved 348 children who were currently being used in pornography and could have potentially saved thousands of others. The Canadian police say that the investigation is still ongoing and there will likely be more arrests made in connection with the case.

    This is good. Meanwhile, 57 million babies have been aborted since 1970. This year in the US there has been over 1 million abortions. To put that in perspective, there has been 1.4 million deaths due to guns since 1970. The number of abortions this year alone will eclipse that mark in 1 year. 40 years of gun violence = 1 year of abortion violence

    I am all for helping kids, but please, we are such hypocrites and selectively moral.

    Accused pedophiles like this sicko pedophile ring, Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. (and their enablers) must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky is now safely behind bars. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to Ireland, the UK and the US. He is now a fugitive from the law. Perpetrators condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure, they and their enablers must be stopped ASAP!
