“Do not upload adult porn.” That was the stomach-turning warning from one of the most heinous child pornography sites on the dark web. Thanks to the Department of Justice, that horrible corner of cyberspace was just the target of an international takedown—a victory months in the making.

“According to the indictment we’re unsealing today,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie Liu announced Wednesday, “the site hosted more than a quarter million videos, and users downloaded more than 1 million files.” Files, she explained, that included children, toddlers, and even infants in “sexually explicit conduct.” “As a parent,” Liu said, “this horrifies me. And it should horrify everyone.”

Working with law enforcement in South Korea, the U.K., and Germany, U.S. officials have arrested 337 people connected to the ring—including 53 pedophiles in America. 

“The sexual exploitation of children,” Liu insisted, “is one of the worst forms of evil imaginable. Indeed, these crimes are so heinous, they are difficult even to speak about … Our message for those who produce, distribute, and receive child pornography is clear: You may try to hide behind technology, but we will find you, and we will arrest and prosecute you.”:snip:
