Investigators with the Michigan State Police have announced an operation to bring down a major child pornographic distribution ring in Battle Creek, Michigan, where so far several individuals from within the state have been taken into custody and arraigned as part of several widespread criminal networks of pedophiles.
The operation to bring down the producers and distributors of illicit images and videos involving prepubescent children being raped, tortured, and molested comes amidst a series of raids on recent weeks in unison with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, where<a href="https://www.wxyz.com/news/seven-men-accused-of-operating-child-pornography-ring-in-michigan"> local Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ Channel 7 </a>reports that seven adults were detained in early August.
In that incident, the group of pedophiles worked to fulfill various jobs in coordination with one another to manipulate young girls into sending them videos of themselves engaged in perverse of sexually explicit actions, by posing as male teenagers to entice the young girls.
Six of the seven pedophiles involved in that particular child pornographic network are each facing charges related to child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to produce child pornography, online enticement, and other child exploitation offenses.
U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider for the Eastern District of Michigan said the men involved had different roles: Some were "hunters," some were "talkers," and some were "loopers." The hunters would find the girls and get them on the website.
"The talkers would talk with these girls and groom them and dare them to engage in certain acts on videotape for the men," Schneider said. "Then the loopers might play the videos back and they would convince these young girls to expose themselves on camera and then record it."

With the arrest and sentencing 42-year-old Eric Robinson, the last of the seven Michigan pedophiles involved in the above-mentioned child pornography ring, he has already pleaded guilty to producing child pornography and received a sentence of 34 years imprisonment and ten additional years of supervised release, as reported by l<a href="https://www.wdio.com/news/eric-robinson-duluth-man-child-pornography-ring/5010873/"> local ABC affiliate WDIO</a>.
The initial complaint against Robinson depicted a calculative pedophile who used an alias, having went by the name "Spencer" in online chat rooms, where he logged in to the website more than 2,000 times between April 1st, of 2015 and June 10th, of 2016 to provide himself another identity in which he felt confident enough to prey on countless dozens of children.
By tracking the IP addresses associated with "Spencer's" account, the FBI assisted in locating Robinson's place of work in Hermantown, and a personal residence in Duluth. This would initiate the first of several major Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force raids against the coordinated pedophile operation of child pornographic distribution over recent months across the state of Michigan.
St. Louis County Sheriff Ross Litman confirmed criminal complaint said: "numerous child pornography files have been found on the items seized from the residence."
"Some of these men had children themselves," Schneider said. "And here in their private time, they were exploiting these young girls, and they were abusing them."
As a result of this sting, numerous others are now facing imprisonment or have already been sentenced, with men ranged in the ages of 31 to 49-year-old, located all across the United States of America.
Arrests and raids have since taken place in Las Vegas, Nevada; Springdale, Arkansas; Wappinger Falls, New York; Highland Park, New York; and Portland, Maine; as part of one of the most widespread geographical coverage areas for swatting a pedophile child pornography distribution ring in the United States law enforcement history.
US Attorney Schneider said, “if there is any comfort at all, it is that the victims did not have to endure a trial.”
"It's helpful, I believe, for the victims when the men plead guilty because then the girls are spared from being victimized all over again by having to testify in a jury trial," Schneider added.
Each of those connected to this mega organization is now facing justice, but the continual response throughout Michigan to stop the pedophile scourge has been monumental if not outright amazing by law enforcement and federal prosecutors.
On August 16th, the United States Attorney’s Office of the Western District of Michigan said in a news release they had successfully finished prosecuting a case against 27-year-old James Theodore Pyle, for his crimes of pretending to be a 15-year-old by the name of “Roman Kalhart,” before he persuaded “as many as 50 to 70 adolescent boys to send him sexually explicit photos over the internet.

Pyle was indicted on two counts of enticement of a minor, two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of receipt of child pornography. He openly admitted to persuading a 15-year-old boy in Wisconsin to send him sexually explicit videos and photographs, as reported in a recent <a href="https://www.justice.gov/usao-wdmi/pr/2018_0816_Pyle"> Department of Justice</a> release.
At least 20 victims were outlined in the pre-sentence investigation report, which prompted Pyle to accept a plea bargain, and now is serving more than 20 years in prison, with ten years of supervised release if he survives the sentence.
“The U.S. Attorney’s Office takes very serious cases involving child predators,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Birge said in a statement. “Those people who would use the internet to hide their true identity to befriend and exploit children deserve the fullest punishment the law provides.”
The very real, and simultaneously ignored pedophile problem scouring this nation is more often than not referred to as “PedoGate,” and Michigan has seen enormous numbers of pedophiles arrested in what is either a disturbing coincidence or a connected series of criminal underworld enterprises that prey upon the most innocent Americans of all, the underage and innocent children.
In mid-July, the Adrian Police Department arrested 28-year-old Daniel Jesus Martinez, after a prolonged investigation that determined the Michigan pedophile forced children as young as ten to send him sexually explicit videos and photographs.

Martinez was determined to have transmitted child pornography of him preying on young children which led to a search warrant execution as his residence, and the Adrian Police Department were able to easily find evidence allowing the pedophile's arrest.
Currently, Martinez is charged with three counts each of engaging in child sexually commercial activity, possession of child sexually abusive material, accosting children for immoral purposes, and using a computer to commit a crime, where he is being held on a bond of $300,000.
In the most recent of raids, two individuals, 32-year-old Matthew Toole, of Battle Creek, Michigan; and his girlfriend, 32-year-old Talia Furman, of Springfield, Michigan, were formally arraigned last Friday on horrific charges including the first-degree criminal sexual conduct of a toddler, child abuse of a toddler, sexually abusive activity involving a toddler, and the gross possession of child sexually abusive material.

Michigan State Police say that the deranged pedophile couple engaged in the forced rapes of two small children, a three-month-old girl and 3-year-old boy whose lives will now be forever tormented by the despicable and evil Toole and Furman, in which MSP Detective Sgt. Mike Salmen says resulted in a tip to Troopers back in May.
According to the<a href="https://www.battlecreekenquirer.com/story/news/2018/08/17/police-fire-couple-charged-rape-infants/1021723002/"> Battle Creek Enquirer</a>, the sexual abuse of the two children occurred in Springfield, and later again at a campground in Marcellus, with Detectives having already located video and photographic evidence of the sexual abuse of these two innocent children.
Such horrific crimes against children, who have never hurt a fly on their short and developing minds, should be punishable by nothing less than execution, but unfortunately, our laws do not currently allow for this type of atrocity to be properly granted justice.
The pair of devious pedophiles and morally corrupt child rapists are being held on a $500,000 bond, where they will are now scheduled to appear before a Magistrate for their preliminary examination on September 5th.

<span style="margin-top:15px;rgba(42,51,6,0.7);font-size:12px;">The child pornographic distribution ring extended from the Easternmost coasts of the United States of America into Las Vegas, according to federal prosecutors.

The horrific reach of this child pornographic distribution ring was capable of spanning from the Easternmost coasts of the United States of America as far out west as Las Vegas, according to federal prosecutors.
The first initial charges, in this case, were brought by the Federal Bureau of Investigation during last summer, in which agents were made aware of the gross sexual exploitation of teenagers online through deceptive tactics used by these pedophiles to both entice and manipulate the children into their clutches.
The perverse and sickening pedophiles behind this scheme convinced them to "undress, masturbate, and engage in other types of sexual activity on web camera,” according to courtroom documents.
These crimes against children cannot and will not go unpunished, albeit there can be no restoration of the innocence forever taken from their bodies, as a permanent sense of betrayal and victimhood will have soon become a real danger for them moving forward as a result.
There are no cases of child pornography where a child isn't a victim. They are all forced to become victims the moment they're sexually exploited to create such a graphic and obscene sexual imagery involving their young bodies, and no child should ever have to endure this.
These monsters, this reality of the PedoGate crisis in America must be brought from the darkness into light, even if one victim at a time, until this evil is forever isolated and removed from existence.
<i>The scourge of child pornographic distribution continues to be eliminated under the Trump Administration, which has result in over 9000 arrests related to human and child-sex trafficking, child molestation, or child pornography since President Trump's inauguration in January of 2017, setting records in the widespread victories against the rampant pedophilia in America.</i>

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) is also bringing down suspected child-sex offenders through Operation Predator.
You can also contact ICE via the Operation Predator application for mobile devices. ICE has created a smartphone app – the first of its kind in U.S. federal law enforcement – designed to seek the public's help with fugitive and unknown suspect child predators.
The iOS version of the app can be downloaded from<a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/operation-predator/id695130859?mt=8"> Apple's App Store and iTunes</a>; the Android version is also available via<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.java.ice"> Google Play Store</a>.
Be sure to contact your elected officials, and demand they earn their taxpayer-funded lifestyle by introducing legislation to protect these children and send a message to all pedophiles with capital punishment being a possible sentence for anyone convicted of crimes against an innocent child.

At least for today, in the State of Michigan, the pedophile plague has been reduced by a handful of evil and demonic creatures, who will soon become prey themselves behind bars.
