Paedophiles should not face jail for looking at pornographic images of children unless they are a physical threat to youngsters, says Britain’s most senior child protection officer.
Officers should instead focus on the most dangerous offenders who have access to youngsters or are directing abuse online, said chief constable Simon Bailey.
We should probably be producing digital porn for the paedos, giving it to them in fact.
For we know quite well that among adult heterosexuals access to porn reduces the rape rate. On the fairly simple grounds that the bloke who’s not had sex for so long he’s got sperm leaking out of his eyeballs is more likely to attack than someone who’s just wanked himself into a stupor.
And we don’t actually care what it is that people get off to. Makes no difference to us or society if someone deals with their stiffie with pictures of a Ferrari, Lola Ferrari or Lolita. Shrug.
What we do care about is that any physical activity with another takes place only with another consenting adult.
So, produce and distribute – digitally produced – kiddie porn and cut the rate of attacks.
Not that I expect this to be taken up such is the hysteria but it does actually make sense.
