A Reaction to New Frontiers in Child Porn Law

When I first heard the podcast, I could not decide whether or not I agreed with Amy’s course of action. Its been over a week since I first heard it and I am still having this debate. What happened to Amy is brutal and horrific, only made worse by the disgusting images. I believe that Amy deserves restitution for these images. However, this lawyers course of action is incredibly interesting. It is not fair to Amy for her to devote her life to hunting down every single person who clicked on the image, but it is also not fair for these individuals to get away with the crime. Should the person who accidentally clicked on the link be responsible for the thousands of others who sought out the image? At first, I thought the distributer should have to pay all of the restitution, for if he never distributed the image, she would never have had this issue, on top of all of the other emotional trauma she has experienced. However, it is still unfair for these individuals to get away with looking at child pornography. I really wish I knew more about law to be able to come to a solid conclusion about the right course of action, but nothing is easy in this type of situation.
