An Unexpected Google Image Result and How I Reported Child Porn

I’m a pretty open-minded person. As long as you aren’t affecting me or mine, go on with it.

I also have a tendency to play the devil’s advocate so I sometimes have a hard time nailing down exactly where I stand on some topics.

This one topic?

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW I FEEL! 

National Center for Missing and Exploited Children

IF YOU GET OFF ON LOOKING AT CHILDREN, YOU ARE A SICK MOTHERFUCKER. DISGUSTING. BEYOND DEVIANT. YOU ARE A SCOURGE. YOU ARE A BOIL. 

This is a case where there is nothing that can even come close to excusing this behavior. Not one damn thing.

There are some sick, sick people out there. It’s one thing to know that…whole other one to have it proven.

National Center for Missing & Exploited ChildrenThe image came up while I was Google Image searching for a meme that should have been 100% not related to what was five rows down in the results. Someone had uploaded the image to a “joke” image site and had titled it in such a way that it came up in my query results.

Thanks a lot, sicko.

I knew the image had to be reported but didn’t want to click to the site. Someone suggested I take a screenshot of it and use that to report the image. Problem with that is I would then have been in possession of child porn. Heather actually is the one who found the Google instructions on how to report the image.

I submitted the report to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. I called Tucker. I eventually calmed down.

At Tucker’s suggestion, I called our local FBI office and reported it to them.

Gotta tell ya, I never thought I’d call the FBI. Sure as shit never thought I’d be saying, “I’ve found, what I believe to be, child pornography,” to a FBI agent. He was quite nice, by the way.

The most uncomfortable part of the entire conversation was when Cara and Ollie wandered into the room and I had to shoo them out. Explaining the concept of child porn to my six and four year old isn’t exactly high on my to-do list.

Damn if this doesn’t bring to the forefront the fact Tucker and I have to broach the subject with the kids. We’ve managed to avoid it up to this point since they were fairly isolated from the rest of the world but that’s quickly changing and I’m dreading the everloving hell out of conversation.

Anyway. I’ve done what I can do.

The Steps I Took To Report Child Pornography

In case you end up in a similar situation, here’s what I did:

As per Google’s page, “Report content that is abusive of minors,” you should file a report with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The form will ask you for information on what you’re reporting, when and where and what have you.

If you want to contact your local FBI field office, they have a locator that’s easy to use:

Local FBI Field Office Locator

If you’re not in the US, Google also lists where to report abuse of minors if you live in Canada, the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.

I hope like hell I don’t ever have to go through these step again. I also hope you never have a reason to use them.
