Good to Have Corey Back

Corey Rayburn Yung at Sex Crimes Blog is back with some interesting posts, including this one on the fed prioritization of child porn at the expense of other offenses with more victims and greater costs. Here’s the requisite proviso: No one defends child porn. But there’s good reason to believe that the emphasis is cynical and hiding other agendas, as a commenter there points out. I would emphasize more of the election angle since this plays into the traditional “boogey man so elect me” campaign line, too, but I do think this is the stalking horse for regulation of Internet content, painting opponents of the latter as advocates of child porn. The question will be, are the opponents of Internet regulation smart enough to be able to fight it off? I’m skeptical (surprise).
