Most people need to be concerned about what they do on their time in their bedrooms, classrooms and offices. In general, what goes on in your private life is likely to cause a problem, provided it remains private.

This is because, in the internet age, where many private activities can become public, that means being careful about what you say or record and post online.

Someone else can also record your activity on his cell phones and camera and give you out.

Children are in danger everywhere in the world as a new UNICEF U.K. has indicated.

According to the report, every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence where vast majority of them are killed outside warzones.

And the physical, sexual and emotional abuses are wide spread with millions of children unsafe in their homes, schools and communities.

Amongst all the crimes being committed against children, child pornography has been identified as the new crime wave which is threatening the development of children the world over.

The possession of child pornography and its transportation across international boundaries is a very serious crime in North America and other developed countries.

Officers of various security agencies such as the immigration, customs and boarder security continues to identify to arrest and prosecute those who are hurting the most vulnerable segment of our society [children].

Health experts have observed that a sexually explicit image of a minor will leave the young victim with permanent psychological, physical and emotional scars and it should not be tolerated at all.

With the advent of the internet, the sharing and trading of child pornography now primarily occurs online.

An investigation conducted by this journalist reveals that since Homeland Security Investment [HSI] launched Operation Predator in 2003, it has so far arrested more than 10,000 individuals for crimes against children.

The crimes were the production and distribution of online child pornography, traveling overseas for sex with minors and sex trafficking of children.

Investigations further revealed that in the 2013 fiscal year alone, more than 2,000 two thousand individuals were arrested by HSI special agents under this initiative.

With the advanced technology in media that allows nearly 30,000 thirty thousand persons to view pornographic sites and in every minute internet users sending 1.7 million pornographic materials one can suspect that this crime is seriously going on in the country, Ghana.

You can not do away with science and technology but if I should advice then I will say, ?be careful because the SHERIFF[U.S. Police] and MOUNTIES [Canadian Police] big brothers are watching you and won?t waste time to handcuff you if found guilty of these crimes?.
