UK – The Home Office has launched a national database of child abuse images to help police identify both the child victims of sexual abuse and the perpetrators.
The Child Abuse Image Database (CAID) was built to compile the rapidly accruing number of pictures depicting child abuse that have been seized during police raids and taken down from websites.
The central image database is intended to help police officers co-ordinate operations and resolve cases faster.
In a statement, Policing Minister Mike Penning told the BBC that CAID was a watershed moment in this government’s drive to stamp out the despicable crime of online child sexual exploitation.’
â€œThe outcomes will be life-changing, and in some cases life-saving. That is how important this database is.
We at The Bastard understand that shortly after the CAID database came online the system crashed due to heavy demand from members of the establishment. It is believed that this official interest divides into a number of categories:
- the reasons Mike Penning gave to the BBC
- finding out which of their rivals is vulnerable to blackmail
- concerned that they might be identified from any of the images or videos stored on the database
- getting their rocks off to the images and videos
The CAID database is is said to be based on the BBC iPlayer technology on the Home Office and Civil Service intranet. There are also secure portals with access via the internet for other interested parties. The security is being provided by trusted banking institutions.
The Home office when asked declined to answer questions from The Bastard about who these interested parties were. They also declined to answer which banks were handling the Pay per View access payments.
Given the attempts by the Home Secretary, Theresa May, to hinder a proper inquiry into the many cases of historic child abuse. By appointing tainted people to conduct the enquiry.
We suspect that the database exists more to protect the establishment, rather than the abused children.
