Welcome to the crowdsourced database tracking information on people arrested for trading in child rape and torture, aka child pornography.
This database systematically compiles and tracks verified public information on people arrested for trading in child rape and torture, aka child pornography.
Submit whatever information is available from media reports and/or court records. Please only submit legally obtained, public information. Partial information is welcome. All information is helpful and gratefully received.
We are slowly entering the few hundred cases already gathered. Many of these cases have been profiled on Medium https://medium.com/@LoriHandrahan2
Since it can often take more than a year for a case to wind through the courts, some of the cases we are entering still need to be updated. Please be patient.
This is a work in progress. All ideas, suggestions, and comments are gratefully accepted.
Even if we only even gather the most basic demographics on these arrests, such as age, race, profession, location we are already doing more than has been done to date.
Many questions are not yet answerable because investigators and prosecutors are not releasing the data and/or not yet collecting the data. We hope that asking the questions will prompt better investigations, prosecutions and media coverage.
Feel free to use the form as a guide to ask questions of your local law enforcement, prosecutors and journalists.
Thank you for taking the time to help us create Data4Justice!
Please share data visualizations you create with our data. We will post it here. Thanks!
