Text sleaze jailed for 'grooming' 14yo
A FATHER of three who started an email relationship with a 14-year-old schoolgirl after she sent him a random SMS has been jailed for attempting to use the internet to lure the teenager into a sexual relationship.

He advertised himself on as a "gay Toronto boy" who is a "sweet person" and easy to talk to, but police allege "Schnail" was an online sexual predator who traded child porn and convinced a 13-year-old small-town Ontario girl to perform sex acts on her webcam.
Give a 13-year old a toy - wonder if her parents know what a webcam is? Bet they do now!
MySpace is a wildly popular Internet site for teens. It has sparked controversy in the United States, where critics say the website is a magnet for pedophiles and sexual predators.

MySpace may face legislative crackdown
Politicians on Tuesday accused and other social-networking sites of failing to protect minors from sexual predators and other malign influences and said a legislative crackdown may be necessary.
" has been a center of drug activity, of gang activity, and of Internet predators," said Rep. Mark Kirk, an Illinois Republican. "Isn't it entirely appropriate that the state get involved?"
This is a problem – we do not want the government to take over the Internet. If the government takes over, the Internet will never be the same.
What we need is for the parents to take more responsibility about what their kids are doing on the Internet. Most parents want to know where there kids are going when they leave the house but do not seem to care what they do on the Internet – makes no sense to me at all…...
