Mobile paedophilia fear

Jan 12 2004 - 12:35 PM ET | In The News
The news wires are buzzing about a new fear that paedophiles will turn to hard-to-track mobiles. All the stories stem from a report that child pornography crimes have increased by 15-hundred percent since 1988. This seems suspect, and probably just means we are better at catching the criminals. But the fear is that with pay-as-you-go phones, paedophiles will have untrackable internet connections. With 3G service, it gets easier.
