At one time, I would have thought a conference like this would be a good thing. Going after the bad guys...go get'em!
Now, I am not so sure. Many of the "bad guys" are just guys who clicked the wrong links and those guys end up with what is essentially a life sentence. Years of prison followed by years of supervision and years on the registry. I can't get too excited about supporting law enforcement efforts to go after more people like that--people who have children of their own, children who will have to endure years without a parent. Who protects those children?
One of the speakers on the schedule is Dave Pelzer, author of A Child Called It. Because there is so much controversy about whether the book is true or not, it surprises me that law enforcement would ask Pelzer to speak at their conference.
