Direct quotes

"We need to de-technify the internet"[3]
"People call them child pornography. But that's a bad thing to call them, because it's actually a picture of a crime scene. And as an investigator, I examine the crime scene," Moran says. Moran says he is "looking for anything that might give me a clue as to what country this comes from." "That's what cyber cops do," he says. Asked if he is a cyber cop, Moran tells Kroft, "We're cyber cops, yeah. ... It simply reflects the world we live in," Moran says." And that world has good and that world has evil."[4]
""MAPs" purchasing or making pictures of naked children is a form of child exploitation. In some jurisdictions it is illegal. But it demonstrates an escalation of activity by "MAPs" that must be interpreted as an increased risk to children regardless of the illegality. [...] If a "MAP" is living his life without acting out then they will never become subject of any attention, legal or otherwise however, any acting out by a "MAP" has potential to harm a child and must result in action by public safety officials."[5]
