The largest kiddie porn bust in American history has a South Carolina connection … which kind of figures when you stop and think about it.

According to WCIV TV 4 (ABC – Charleston, S.C.), 28-year-old Christopher Blackford of Charleston is one of at least forty-seven defendants in “largest child pornography bulletin board prosecution in U.S. history.”

Blackford posted at least 84 entries onto a website called “Dreamboard” that contained child pornography. He’s already pleaded guilty, and is facing twenty years to life in prison for his crimes.

Wait … that’s it?

“The sexual abuse of innocent children is one of the most unconscionable violations of trust imaginable,” the lead federal agent on the case said. “Investigating and prosecuting the perpetrators of these horrendous crimes is one of our highest priorities and (we) will continue to work with its law enforcement partners to bring these criminals to justice.”

Indeed …

As cops and courts libertarians, we can’t think of a more important function of government than protecting children from sexual exploitation. In fact in the benevolent dictatorship of Sic Willie (a.k.a. our founding editor, Will Folks), child pornography crimes would be dealt with via the “12 gauge impalement” method of execution.

Because that’s what these sick bastards deserve as opposed to “three hots and a cot” at the taxpayers’ expense for the rest of their lives …
