25. I agree with all you say here, except for one thing
"Owning kiddie porn encourages the person who took the pictures to take more".

I don't understand that statement. I could understand it if it was paid for. In that case, it could encourage the person who took the pictures to take more. So, I agree that it should be illegal to pay for kiddie porn because that in fact would encourage the person who took the pictures to keep on doing it, so paying for it could be seen as contributing to the exploitation of children.

But I can't see how merely having it on your computer can contribute to the exploitation of children. The person who took the pictures has know way of knowing that you have it on your computer, so how can that contribute to anything?

With regard to you last sentence, I most certainly aree with that: ".... Case closed". That's why I'm so incensed with the prosecutor for this. Those facts could have easily been determined within days, and before the charge was made. Instead this dragged out for, I believe, more than a year. And it was hell for my nephew.

My wife and I even made an appointment to meet with the prosecutor in person to tell her what we knew of the situation. And then she cancelled the appointment without even telling us about it -- we found out it was cancelled on the day of the appointment, through her secretary, when we called to confirm the appointment. God, I hate her!
