    Arresting children?

    Thank heavens - we can all sleep safe in our beds knowing that the entertainment industry is protected from er... children.

    Would somebody think of the children............

    Does this mean that the children were lead astray by an Man or is setting up one of these sites just child's play...........

    It would be interesting to know were the profits were going. Perhaps it was the mafia.
