It is intriguing that when the topic here is the sexual abuse of children that some would like to silence or restrict that!!!
Why is that?

Accused predator out on bail
Jasmin Lill.  The Courier - Mail.  Brisbane, Qld.:Nov 18, 2006.  p. 29
 
A GRANDFATHER accused of taking photographs of himself raping his eight-month-
old granddaughter has been released on bail.
 
The 67-year-old appeared in custody in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court
yesterday charged with two counts of rape and four counts of indecent treatment
of a child.
 
Detectives from Taskforce Argos also have charged the disability pensioner with
making, possessing and distributing child exploitationmaterial.
 
In opposing bail, Sergeant Tina Green said police had found photographs of the
man raping the baby which had been taken by him on his digital camera.
 
Other images captured his granddaughters -- now aged 3 and 4 -- in
"compromising positions", Sgt Green said.
 
She said the man had the potential to reoffend if he was released.
 
But defence lawyer Chris Callaghan said his client had no criminal history and
would not go near his grandchildren.
 
Magistrate Noel Nunan released the man on bail.
 
He ordered him not to have any contact with his granddaughters and that he
reappear in court in January.
