79. I have more than one point that I've discussed in this post and think is important
I did not make light of child pornography being on computers. I said in the OP "The purpose of the law is supposed to be to protect children against sexual exploitation. Im sure that we can all agree that that is a worth while goal."

I did say that I believe a person should be prosecuted or punished for what they do, not for what they might do. Once you start imprisoning people for what they might do, you have a system that is very vulnerable to abuse, and you've taken a major step towards a police state.
