Law enforcement officers working together in the United States, Australia, and Thailand have rescued 50 children who were being abused by an international ring of pedophiles. That’s the good news.

The bad news is there may be another 50 unfortunate children who are still being abused in a living hell that officials have not been able to identify as yet.

The BBC reports, “The investigation began in 2017 and focused on a hidden 'dark web' site with 63,000 users worldwide. Operation Blackwrist was launched by Interpol after it detected images showing 11 boys aged under 13 being abused on a site where people can use encrypted software to maintain secrecy.”

We’ve often said that putting an unmonitored computer in your children’s room is like installing an open sewer there and this proves our point. The “dark web” is a portion of the internet where human wastes hide unspeakable activities that are “beyond the reach of mainstream search engines.”

Interpol has announced that in addition to rescuing the children, nine arrests have been made “and more are expected.” What’s even more disturbing about this — in addition to the depravity of abusing children — is that the perps arrested in the United States “held positions of public trust.”

On the abuse website, new images of disgusting crimes were uploaded on a weekly basis to keep the offering ‘fresh.’ Many of the children’s faces were digitally blurred making is harder for law enforcement to identify and rescue the children.

There were thousands of images captured on devices that were seized. The youngest victim was 15 months old.

U.S. law enforcement traced the IP address of the site that hosted the abuse pics and enabled the capture of site administrator Montri Salangam in Thailand. His partner in crime was captured in Australia.

The wheels of justice have been turning faster overseas. In Thailand, Salangam was sentenced to 146 years (this prime example of humanity was abusing his nephew). A pre-school teacher accomplice was handed a sentence of 36 years.

In Australia, the other site administrator, Ruecha Tokputza, pled guilty to 51 charges against 11 babies and boys. His 40-year sentence was the most ever given for child sex offences.

The judge presiding over Tokputza’s trial, Liesl Chapman, pretty much summed up the feelings of every decent person, parent or not, when she told the convicted, “You are a child's worst nightmare, you are every parent's horror, you are a menace to the community.”
