Virtual girl traps sex predators

She called herself Sweetie and when she went online, 20,000 men from around the world contacted her and 1,000 of them offered her money to perform explicit acts. But Sweetie wasn't a young schoolgirl, she was a computer-generated image and now those men are being investigated by child protection authorities.

    While this is all very interesting it occurs to me that we have laws that prosecute the people who advertise that they have child porn whether that porn is real or not and it has been upheld by the Supreme Court. While 3D porn that is advertised as not being real is completely legal to sell and to have. It is the pandering as long as one or both parties believe the porn is real. http://www.supremecourt.gov/ So in this case the private citizens that are offering the pornography are guilty of pandering child pornography.

    Where has morality gone.... An end must be put to this kind of anti social behaviour if the society should be a safe haven for reasonable people to thrive in.

    Why can't the culprits do the explicit activities by themselves? Is it because they have fear of exposing their privacies to the public and hence they take advantage of the innocent girls who are not well known allover? Something need to be done against this act.
