GUEST,Eliza BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread (221* d) RE: BS: Mudcat Censorship in Rolf Harris thread 06 Jul 14

All this prompts me to ask some questions:-

Did the FBI find Harris's credit card had indeed been used to pay for child porn?

Did he only view said porn, or also store it (ie 'made an image of it')?

Is it illegal to view only, without storing on the hard drive?

If yes to any or all of the above, why was he not charged and prosecuted about this in addition to the other charges?

I have to say that IMO 'merely' viewing images of child abuse is evil and disgusting in the extreme. What sort of man would even wish to do so? (Presumably a paedophile, although some men have said they were merely 'curious', or it appeared on their screens unbidden.) Harris has now spent two days in prison, but his victims have spent an entire life trying to deal with the trauma of his actions. I trust the due process of British justice, and while the whole situation is sad and shocking, I have no sympathy for the man himself.
