What should happen to THESE people?

A 2006 Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation into the purchase of child pornography online turned up more than 250 civilian and military employees of the Defense Department -- including some with the highest available security clearance -- who used credit cards or PayPal to purchase images of children in sexual situations. But the Pentagon investigated only a handful of the cases, Defense Department records show.

The cases turned up during a 2006 ICE inquiry, called Project Flicker, which targeted overseas processing of child-porn payments. As part of the probe, ICE investigators gained access to the names and credit card information of more than 5,000 Americans who had subscribed to websites offering images of child pornography. Many of those individuals provided military email addresses or physical addresses with Army or fleet ZIP codes when they purchased the subscriptions.

  • Castration comes to mind...

    Answer by parrishsky at 1:15 PM on Sep. 3, 2010

  • its a very serious crime and they should be punished the same as anyone else who is convicted of this crime (with the caveat that I personally think the punishment should be stricter- since most first time offenders often have their jail sentences converted to parole time)

  • I think they should all be punished accordingly for their crime, maybe even a more strict punishment because they are in the military or higher positions and should know better.

  • oooops
    cont: It is in their minds. Castation would make other people feel good....but the kiddie porn watchers will still want to watch even without their gonads. They should be put in prison for a while with a roomie named Bubba. :-)

  • I have no idea what should happen to them. It's too bad there are so many damn sickos in the world, ya know?

  • The DOD members should be investigated, tried and if convicted do HARD time at Leavenworth. The ciivilians should receive the same.

    No industry or group is immune from the sick mind. It is only natural though that some be held to a higher standard.

    Answer by yourspecialkid at 1:16 PM on Sep. 3, 2010

  • They should be arrested, tried and fired. OF COURSE.

    Answer by itsmesteph11 at 1:20 PM on Sep. 3, 2010

  • They should be treated like any civilian that downloads child porn........they are sick and castration sounds good to me too, no matter who's doing it.
