Several researchers have reported correlations between paedophilia and certain psychological characteristics, such as low self-esteem and poor social skills. While we’ve spent quite a large amount of time outing paedophile behaviour – Paedophilia – there is a gathering body of evidence that describes this abominable behaviour as an illness. Cohen et al – 2002 – in studying ‘Personality Impairment in Male Paedophiles‘ outlines a view of paedophiles as having impaired interpersonal functioning, elevated passive-aggressiveness, as well as an impaired self-concept. According to the authors, pathologic personality traits in paedophiles lend support to a hypothesis that such pathology is related to both motivation for and failure to inhibit paedophilia behaviour :: Read the full article »»»»

Our distaste for child abuse of any form has been well penned on these pages, it now seems that the interweb is catching up! Australia’s first public sex offenders register will go online later today, publishing the names and faces of known child sex offenders in Western Australia.
The names and faces of about 50 paedophiles will be published on the State Government website, which is being set up in fulfilment of a 2008 election pledge.
The launch is being closely watched by other states, but there are concerns it will prompt vigilantism and cases of mistaken identity.
The website will provide information on some of the state’s most dangerous and repeat child sex offenders, including their photos, names and the suburbs in which they live, although it will not give out specific addresses :: Read the full article »»»»

Remorseless South Australian paedophile Robert Edwin Collins, has described his crimes as “just a bit of fun” Collins has been jailed for at least six years.
Robert Edwin Collins, 61, was found guilty by an Adelaide jury of persistent sexual exploitation of a young girl in the 1980s. The District Court heard he constantly abused his victim throughout her childhood, the abuse started when she was just six years old.
The morbidly-obese man, who is confined to a wheelchair, initially argued he was too sick for jail. The paedophiles lawyer ordered medical reports to help clarify whether Collins could get appropriate care from Correctional Services and whether prison authorities could cope with him.
Judge Michael Boylan said it was clear the man’s needs could be met even though prison staff would have problems.
Judge Boylan said Collins had shown no remorse. “When the victim challenged you many years later saying you were wrong for what you did … you replied ‘It was just a bit of fun’,” Judge Boylan said. “Your answer to her on that occasion sums up the way you treated her, as a toy to be played with at your whim. It was extremely serious offending, it was prolonged and a gross breach of trust.” :: Read the full article »»»»

Hundreds of paedophiles prowling on the internet have been identified in an operation in 141 countries, Austrian Federal Police said. In Austria alone, operation “Carole” found 272 suspects, making it the biggest ever police sweep against child pornography in the small country.
The investigations, which lasted almost a year, began in Luxembourg when the operator of a root server based there reported two websites containing large quantities of child pornography to the authorities. Chief Inspector Harald Gremel, the operations coordinating officer, said Austrian Federal Police were alerted by Luxembourg authorities after they found child pornography was being watched worldwide from several Luxembourg-based home pages.
The website’s files, indicating a worldwide clientele, were seized by police and passed on to investigators in 141 countries, Austrian police said, without elaborating on the countries or the number of people involved.
The 272 Austrian suspects, all male and aged 17 to 70, came from all types of background and professions, including teachers and kindergarten staff. All of them were found in possession of paedophile images or videos. In two cases actual abuse of children could be proven, police said.
Searches at the suspects’ homes turned up vast amounts of material, which is currently being examined. Many of the suspects are thought to be from Vienna. Police declined to say whether investigations were continuing outside of Austria.
In March 2011, an Europol sweep identified 670 suspects and made 184 arrests in what was then the biggest case of its kind. In June of this year, law enforcement agents in the United States arrested 190 people in a cross-border – Operation Orion – investigation into child pornography.
