Child porn family busted

iol news pic child porn bust dec 03 . A grandmother  one of the eight accused in the Pretoria North sex scandal  has challenged the State to place one shred of evidence before court, other than the allegations against them by two small children.

Eight members of one family have been arrested in a child porn ring bust outside Pretoria, reports said on Friday.

According to The Times newspaper police raided four homes north of Pretoria in the early hours of Thursday.

Those arrested included a grandfather, 58, grandmother, 57, their two sons from previous relationships, aged 34 and 36, the grandfather's brother, 61, and his wife, 42, and their mentally disabled son, 28. The 26-year-old wife of one of the sons was also arrested.

They stand accused of sexually abusing four children, three boys and a girl, aged between four and 15.

Social workers became suspicious after two foster children -

who were removed from the families in March and October - started doing badly in school.

The eight will face charges of rape, indecent assault, sexual grooming of children and possession, manufacturing and distribution of child pornography.

They are expected to appear in court on Monday. - Sapa

uhm, "....Social workers became suspicious after two foster children - who were removed from the families in March and October - started doing badly in school". Ever heard of using brackets? So what qualifications do you need to have these days to become a journalist? The headline was more informative than the actual article, sies! and Kabelo is back. It seems that every Friday Kabelo makes a comment about the nationalisation of mines.

I stand horrified. I read the article about the Free State murders of that family, and the report on Beeld spoke about a note in Sotho that read, "We killed them - we will be back". Someone commented that these people who did this have No upbringing, no morals in their culture. I agree. But then we turn to THIS case and I would love to know the language groupculture in this case. And I speak as a South AFrican who went to both English and Afrikaans schools growing up. My issue is - certain parts of our 'previously advantaged' society are crumbling at an INCREDIBLE rate - and I'd like to know which part did this - TO THEIR OWN people; their own kind. HOW LOW CAN A CULTURAL SUBGROUP GO? Just like the Sunday rapist, I'd like to know what cultural background these people have. I'd love to know the statistics of types of crimes committed in this country, and by which group they're committed. I think the results would be STAGGERING.

Firstly @Kabelo - How ignorant do YOU have to be to associate this horrendous crime with politics. My first child is on her way and that being said these are SICK, TWISTED people. Those children are emotionally and psychologically damaged. They should rot in jail and not get these light sentences that's being handed out these days. They have no say,no rights and especially NO excuses.

Death penalty is too good for these people. I'm the same age as the grandparents, and I shudder to think what they have been doing all their lives. Filthy scum of the earth, who shouldn't be allowed to live.

What an idiot you really are. I have seen your comments here before where sexual offences have been published. You have nothing intelligent to say so please go join juju and his cronies and their politics. As for these degenerates, death penalty will not correct their behaviour, I say mutilate their arms and have them live in a desert together and NEVER see humankind again. South AFricans will not move fwd as a united front so long as we think in races. No child should EVER go throught this and race has no bearing on humanity! Its a pity that the decision makers of this country dont read these comments much less act on them. So we can say all we want but, our frustrations will still amount to nothing!

these people are absulutly beyond evil and sick... i want to just kill my daughter for looking in a boy's direction how in the world can parents do that to innocent children that's looking for love and a family just to be part of how? I ask with tears in my eyes - I so want to have another child being batteling for 13 years and this what happens to those that DON'T DESERVE TO LIVE AND HAVE CHILDREN - I hope when they go to prison they will suffer.... I honestly do I dispise fights but I hope they get hurt and abused just like they did to those children - Please help those kids find there way back to love who ever they are with now cause they are going to need all the help and love to show them this is not what love means .....

those who would use this news item as a platform to put personal matters out there, are as bad as the criminals in the article. FOCUS! put your own agenda's aside and spare a thought for the victims here, give them the dignity they deserve and have been deprived of by putting your petty injustices aside.

@Kabelo: Are you telling us that rapes, murder and child porn are part of a plan orchestrated by the ANCYL in order to force the nationalisation of mines and that you are actively participating in these crimes against humanity?

I think that for those sought of people the death penalty should be brought back. No wonder the youth of today is the way it is, being exposed to sick adults who do not deserve to live....

I think the death penalty is not good enough for these people. Bring back the ancient practice of publically hanging, drawing and quartering. Let them feel some pain for the lifelong pain they cause their victims. These animals are truely oxygen theives.

Why has this been allowed to go on for so long without being picked up by the so called 'social workers' who should have been visiting and investigating anything amiss with these poor foster children. I say the government is not putting enough money into the welfare of children without parents and the officials who are charged with their care are not qualified enough to pick up behaviour indicating this is going on. Julius and Zuma - and the whole cabinet - give up your expensive cars, outrageous expenditure on entertaining and invest in the future of our children who have a right to be protected and nurtured. shame on all you inept health and welfare officials!!!!

I have just read the full article in the Times. Guys this is only part of the story. It is even worse than the fraction that is written here. I can't believe that so much evil could be done by one family. They are mindless, dirty, vile, thugs. They would probably get pleasure if they were thrown into jail and sexually abused. They should be put into a big tank with hungry rats.
