“7200 Buyers” – Mangaka & Cops in Huge Child Porn Bust

After at last proving themselves useful by busting a site selling actual child pornography, Japan’s metropolitan police department discovered the site was idiotically (or sinisterly) keeping a complete list of its buyers, containing some 7,200 names including those found to be of prosecutors, police, popular mangaka and even Diet members.

Police have already filed charges against 200 buyers on the list for possession of child pornography – whether or not the other 7,000 will be let off the hook for wont of evidence or merely being too risky to prosecute is not clear.

Naturally many are questioning the authenticity of the list while others are wondering why the site kept records of its buyer’s names, with the prospect of blackmailing buyers being one possibility, and falsely implicating one or more individuals in the list another.

Possessing child pornography was criminalized in 2015, generating a rather modest 56 arrests in 2016 – suggesting police could almost quadruple that statistic in a stroke.

    • Because gay sex can occur between two consenting adults who understand what they are doing. Minors are easily manipulated and even if they give consent, they almost do not understand what they are doing.

      • Bull, Anonymous. That is the common fallacy that children “Do not understand what they are doing!”
        Yes, they do understand what they are doing:
        1. Something pleasurable.
        2. Something that adults for stupid reasons do not want them doing.

        I’ll be blunt here: I would trust a random pedo who said “I want to doink your daughter!” more than I would a random heterosexual because in the real world? It is the random heterosexuals who beat and truly abuse children the vast majority of the time.

        • Spoken like a true pedo. You are deluded if you think the underdeveloped brain of a child can make rationale decisions that can impact the rest of their lives, such as sexual intercourse. You probably think it is okay to manipulate or coerce a woman into sex. I can imaging your rough life and your level of attractiveness. But you are wrong, deluded, and should seek help before you cause harm to someone. If you believe that pedos don’t beat and abuse children… please just kill yourself.

          • You are deluded if you think that the mentally-ill mind of a homosexual can make rational decisions that affect the rest of their lives, such as sexual intercourse and marriage.

            You are wrong if you think only ugly men manipulate a woman into sex.

    • Yeah, and why is incest so heavily discriminated against? We literally have man-women sticking their clits in woman-men into orifices where people physiologically defecate. Why can’t sibling fuck each other if they want to?

      And don’t give me this “they make retarded children” argument. Most of “today’s hot pairings” can’t even make children.

      • For the most part, incest is discriminated against for the same reason as homosexuality is discriminated against: Because people are squicked out by sexual conduct that they, themselves, would never engage in. As people’s minds open up, incest will become more accepted as well…
        That said, given the odds of being subjected to sexual abuse or some kinda emotional blackmail by a family member, we should always treat incestual relationships with a healthy amount of carefulness. ‘Cuz, yeah, the relationship may be consensual, but it may also be a case of grooming, and that’s NOT okay.

      • “And don’t give me this “they make retarded children” argument”

        Children of parent-child or sibling-sibling unions are at an increased risk compared to cousin-cousin unions. Inbreeding may result in a greater than expected phenotypic expression of deleterious recessive alleles within a population. As a result, first-generation inbred individuals are more likely to show physical and health defects, including:

        Reduced fertility both in litter size and sperm viability
        Increased genetic disorders
        Fluctuating facial asymmetry
        Lower birth rate
        Higher infant mortality and child mortality
        Smaller adult size
        Smaller penis size
        Loss of immune system function
        Increased cardiovascular risks

        This is a far cry from the idealized imouto anime depictions of incest.

        Perhaps the most famous historical examples come from the Ptolemaic Dynasty. Generational inbreeding spanning decades, resulting in multi-organ fibrotic conditions such as Erdheim–Chester disease, familial multifocal fibrosclerosis, thyroiditis, hereditary obesity (said Dynasty was infamous for its fatties) and ocular proptosis.

    • The difference is that to most (stupid) people the thought of sexual interaction with children is so disgusting they dont even think about the fact that no one chose to be a pedo. Just the fact of being a pedo is enough to most people to wish him a painful death, even if this pedo havent touched and will never touch a child in his life. Human logic!

        • Developed? Neither are grown women and boys who were born with testicles and ovaries most times (some families refuse to do hormonal treatment because of the instances of severe behavior and physical issues).

          As to ‘cannot legally consent to sex’? Big deal… neither could adult women at one time in the United States and elsewhere in the world. They had to go to their daddy and ask them to ‘marry them off’ if they wanted to ride the ‘D.

          • “Developed” in this case refers not only to bodies and sexual organs but also brains, cognitive abilities and ability to be fully aware of what it is one consents to and the risks involved.

            The difference here being that while adult women not being able to legally consent to sex was just plainly sexistic, children being unable to legally consent to sex is because we’ve learned, through studying their behavior and thought processes, that their brains and cognitive abilities aren’t developed enough to fully comprehend what consenting to sex actually entails, you fucking pedo-apologist reprobate.

      • Lol sometimes yes. Many of the middle and high school girls that sold their bodies knew full well what they were doing. Of course whether they fully understood the long term consequences and repercussions at that age is questionable. Many children are motivated (whether this is society’s fault or a natural instinct is debatable) by materialism. The prospect of simply doing things that essentially feel good (on the physical level, the emotional faculties might not be developed enough), and then getting money on top of it… yeah it’s attractive to a lot of people.

        The problem is kind of two fold. Throughout the ages, there have been times when life expectancy was so low that it was normal to marry and maybe even start pumping out kids at young ages. I don’t think that kind of aesthetic disposition goes away easily. However, society and progressive attitudes have been shifting at a much faster pace. That’s the way a lot of these things go. Of course then you have your sadist deviants and fuck the system types anyway.

        This is why lolicon is such a godsend. It provides an outlet where the kinks get satisfied, but no one gets hurt… People with repressed desires are the ones that end up snapping the worst.

        • What long term consequences?

          The vast majority of the ‘long term consequences’ come from other people bashing on females and males who have sex ‘early’ (and those bashers are usually just jealous of the males/females in question).

  • Without knowing actual details I withold any judgement. This “child porn” could easily just be nude photography of children. PureNudism has been selling legal child pornography for years even though it is banned in many places.

  • One of the biggest issues with these kinds of operations previously has been that the people who bought the material generally did so with stolen details and largely the police didn’t give a fuck and knocked down doors and told neighbours and police why they were there only for the police to never be able to prove anything, many men ended up completely ostracised from society.

  • “containing some 7,200 names including those found to be of prosecutors, police, popular mangaka and even Diet members.”

    It kind of reminds of the story were some humans lived in the robots society and tried to act like robots to blend in. In the end it turned out that those humans were actually robots who thought that they were humans.

  • Japan took quite a long time to implement that law. Especially when you consider that sites like Amazon Japan used to stock things like Junior Idol DVDs/Photobooks and delisted 100s of them when that law came to be(They were worried they qualified as CP).

  • Seeing as members of the police and government got busted I expect this law to slowly be phased out in some amendment buried deep with in a tax reform or something or funding for these investigations to dry up.

  • Is anyone honestly surprised that these mangaka are pedophiles? You don’t sit there and constantly draw loli borderline hentai and not develop an interest in the real thing. That goes for all you “lolicons” as well. Just ticking pedophile bombs.
