Pedophiles Of The World Beware!

We've heard some good news. A plan to compile a world-wide registry of pedophiles is well underway:
G8 nation interior ministers decided in 2003 the database would be set up and are now looking at what is required to make it work technically.

It will store images of offenders and victims found on the web and computers.

Images will be shared across borders by police forces, making identification of offenders and victims easier.

UK Home Secretary Charles Clarke is chairing Thursday's Sheffield summit of interior ministers from the G8 - which is made up of seven of the world's richest nations plus Russia.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "The G8 two years ago commissioned a report on how we could do this with new technology and how we can work together well.

"Interpol has done the work ... and there has been very good progress. We have been able to use the technology and take it forward. And as a means of tackling this kind of vile organised crime, it is very positive."
The first step toward defending our children from these monsters is knowing who the monsters are. This system is a step in the right direction.
