Quote from Stephen Shires, Shelby County District Attorney:


 “The dark web, and the individuals that operate there, pose a continued and increasing threat to the safety of our children.  Jurisdiction, geography, and distance serve as a minimal, if any, impediment to some very terrible activities.  In this matter, Law Enforcement mounted an effective and integrated (both state/federal and multi-state-Texas/Florida) effort to deal with this situation. Hopefully this will serve as a continued reminder that parents should always be vigilant and aware of what their children are doing on the internet.  I hope it also gives folks some comfort to know that there are also good guys at work-highly trained, highly capable individuals working to protect us.  And rest assured anyone utilizing the dark web will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law by my office.”
