Dark web child abuse image site with 400,000 members taken down in global police sting

LONDON — German police have arrested four members of a gang suspected to be behind one of the world's biggest child abuse image websites with more than 400,000 members worldwide, police and prosecutors said Monday.

A police operation involving regional and federal German officers raided seven addresses across Germany and arrested three men accused of operating Boystown, a platform for distributing indecent images and video of children, the BKA, Germany's federal police agency, said in a statement.

Police also arrested one man in Paraguay, who is due to be extradited to Frankfurt. The arrests took place in mid-April but were announced on Monday.

The site is no longer in operation, the BKA's statement said, adding that an unspecified number of related chat sites were also shut down.

The arrested suspects, who in accordance with German law have not been named, were 40 to 64 years old.

The three suspects arrested in Germany are accused of founding and maintaining the site, as well as giving members advice on how to avoid arrest. One of them, a 64-year-old from Hamburg, is alleged to have personally uploaded more than 3,500 images.

"Furthermore, members of the platform received safety instructions from them for secure surfing on 'Boystown' in order to minimize the risk of discovery by law enforcement authorities," the BKA said.

The pan-European police agency Europol assisted in the monthslong investigation alongside authorities in the United States, the Netherlands, Sweden, Australia and Canada.

The site was on the dark web, an encrypted series of web pages inaccessible through normal web browsers or search engines.

Police said the site had existed since at least June 2019 and "served the worldwide exchange of child pornography by platform members, whereby mainly recordings of abuse of boys were exchanged."

The site was structured so to allow easy retrieval of images and video of "the most serious sexual abuse of young children," police said.

Two chat areas on the site allowed members to exchange images of abuse in multiple languages.

Europol said in a statement: "Online child offender communities on the dark web exhibit considerable resilience in response to law enforcement actions targeting them.

"Their reactions include resurrecting old communities, establishing new communities, and making strong efforts to organize and administer them."

The case is latest in a long string of global attempts to clamp down on distribution of child abuse images through the dark web. And other raids and arrests could follow in an attempt to shut down other, similar sites.

"There were and there are still several sites similar to Boystown in the darknet. For this reason investigations will go on to identify the responsible persons behind theses dark net sites," said Julia Bussweiler, a public prosecutor, responding to a question from NBC News.

In 2019 federal prosecutors in the U.S. filed multiple charges against a 23-year-old South Korean man accused of running what they call the world's "largest dark web child porn marketplace," with more than 200,000 unique videos.

The dark web has long been associated with a range of criminality, including the sale of drugs and hacked private information.

Several high-profile successful police operations have curbed the activities of illegal marketplaces. In January this year Europol said it had successfully shut down DarkMarket, thought to be among the largest in the world with half a million members and more than 140 million euros ($168 million) in sales to date.

I don’t think I will ever be able to forget the recent case of Peter Scully, who both paid parents and kidnapped children to film them being tortured and raped. He eventually sold a video series titled “Daisy’s Destruction” through one of these dark web sites.

I fell down a rabbit hole of research on him and felt sick and depressed for days after.

Per wiki:

[quote] Peter Gerard Scully (born 13 January 1963) is an Australian man imprisoned for life in the Philippines after being convicted of one count of human trafficking and five counts of rape by sexual assault of underage girls.[2] He is pending trial for other crimes against children, including the production and dissemination of child pornography, torture, and the alleged murder of an 11-year-old girl.[timeframe?]

An ex player of the German national soccer team was just sentenced for not only having downloaded child pornography (10 year old girls) but also having sent it to three women he knew. He was “sentenced” to 10 months probation. The judge (a woman) said he “seemed to be really sorry.”

This is the most stupid frau-like question I've seen so far on DL, and that says something. Are you aware of what percentage of the world population lives in abject poverty? Or, how many abandoned street children there are on the streets of big cities such as Manila or Rio? You sound like some QAnon loon talking about Wayfair armoires and Hollywood celebrities harvesting adrenochrome from Midwestern children.

I think they're both sociopaths and sadists, r30.

An aside: we usually think of sociopaths as lacking empathy, but Martha Nussbaum argues (somewhere) that effective torture actually requires empathy -- the capacity to "feel" what the tortured is feeling.

As an aside, I have some sadistic fantasies. I have only ever acted out on them once, with a willing partner, and that was enough. My fantasies aren't extreme, either. Spanking, verbal humiliation, that sort of thing. I am horrified by most BDSM porn. I think it's one thing to have sadistic fantasies; it's the acting upon them with unwilling partners that (I think) is caused by sociopathy.

I actually dislike that I get off on others' pain and humiliation -- no matter how "minor" it is in a BDSM context. It's one thing I truly wish I could change about myself.

Of course, I'm only talking about adults here. This story is a whole other level of horrific.

Also out of Austrailia is "The Boy With The Henna Tattoo". A gay couple adopted a young boy from Russia, solely to sexually exploit him at home, and abroad. This is both immensely heartbreaking, and infuriating. The process of cracking the international case is somewhat fascinating though.

And know thay both men are now in prison: Truong for thirty years, and Newton for forty.

[quote] Possession of child porn was legal in Japan until 2014. And the country is not shithole backwater like Kentucky or Kansas or West Virginia.

Japan is disgustingly lax about child sex abuse. People think of it as a crime-free country, but it's only crime free if you're a man. Violence and especially sexual violence against women and children is not seen as a crime but more of a social problem-- akin to drug use in the US. I lived there and I know the language, and I was disgusted by the things I saw.

This is not happening in only Germany, it is world-wide. You have to wonder how and why so few are prosecuted in other countries. How far up the social and economic ladder does it go?

What really blows my mind is how pervasive it is.

Our society creates these monsters. Most of us grow up being told that we are not good enough, that we are powerless. And some grow into adults who believe they need to steal other people's "power" in order to be "good enough". And that's when these insecure douchebags get a taste for acquiring and affirming their "power" by doing heinous crimes and get away with them. Secret, or Satanic, societies use pedophilia as a means to control their members to blackmail them into submission once they realize the cult is a sham.

We're disgustingly lax about it here in the U.S. too.

R67 In the case of Truong, his family were Vietnamese refugees, who landed in Austrailia. He was molested by a family member at a young age, and became involved with a man thirty or so years his senior when he moved to the U.S. in his twenties. This is also where he met Newton, his partner in crime.

So, where this case is concerned, I don't think the proximity of Asian nations played a part, except perhaps that Austrailia was the initial escape point for Truong's family.
