Most of us really get into the superhero movies, comics and TV shows. We rally for the heroes risking everything to protect and better society. I have always loved these fictional characters and openly wished they really existed. My favorite has always been Batman, he never let the injustices of the legal system stand in his way to do what he knew was right. He risked life and freedom to take down the scum polluting the streets.
Now, we have a group of Batman minded people who have stepped forward to clean our internet streets of the worst type of pollution, child pornography. The group calls themselves Anonymous. They are a group of amazing hackers who has joined the fight against pedophiles. They have taken down a huge website which featured naked pictures of children. They also posted the names of the men who frequented the site.
Here is their statement on this victory:
The owners and operators at Freedom Hosting are openly supporting child pornography and enabling pedophiles to view innocent children, fueling their issues and putting children at risk of abduction, molestation, rape, and death.
For this, Freedom Hosting has been declared #OpDarknet Enemy Number One.
By taking down Freedom Hosting, we are eliminating 40+ child pornography websites, among these is Lolita City, one of the largest child pornography websites to date containing more than 100GB of child pornography.
We will continue to not only crash Freedom Hosting's server, but any other server we find to contain, promote, or support child pornography.
Our demands are simple. Remove all child pornography content from your servers. Refuse to provide hosting services to any website dealing with child pornography. This statement is not just aimed at Freedom Hosting, but everyone on the internet. It does not matter who you are, if we find you to be hosting, promoting, or supporting child pornography, you will become a target.
Wow! That is so powerful and a perfect warning to all those out there who are posting, hosting or visiting child porn sites. This group is so Boondock Saints! And all the other Boondock Saints fans out there should LOVE Anonymous too!
Let me just say: I ,Marie Crist, support Anonymous in what they have done here! Often times, I am asked if I support Vigilantes. By definition, Anonymous has turned vigilante and YES, I support what they did here! I only wish there was a way for the public to send Anonymous donations for their amazing work. However, the damn FBI, the same group who couldn't, wouldn't, didn't take down Freedom Hosting would track the bank account in order to take down Anonymous!
I love you! I support you and if ever you find a way to receive donations, let me know! Keep up the great work and know that there are many of us who are behind you!
