Child porn cases take toll on investigators leading US fed govt’s war on child porn

D.C. police detective Timothy Palchak spends his days trawling the Internet for people willing to send him child pornography. It isn’t easy work, pretending to be a pedophile. in online chats, instant messages and telephone calls, Palchak must enter the psyche of men he describes as “the scum of the Earth.”He tells his targets that he molests children, even infants, and describes his deranged sexual desires. He feigns anxiety at being caught by police and expresses sympathy for a suspect’s fetishes. Before long, Palchak is bombarded with vile photographs and videos, all depicting sexual abuse of children. The investigator scrutinizes the images to build his case and, he hopes, to rescue victims.
