Gardai hunting Dublin perverts who posted 17,000 pictures of naked girls on Facebook

Facebook child porn facilitators are being hunted by gardai after they were caught sharing more than 17,000 pictures of naked schoolgirls online.

The Mirror reports that the men, aged 21 and 23 were using a Facebook page to share hard porn pictures of children as young as 13.

At least a dozen girls made formal complaints to the gardai over the Facebook page, which clocked up thousands of hits in a short time online and has since been closed.

The men, believed to be from Blanchardstown and Lucan in West Dublin, are being investigated by gardai.

The Mirror reports a source as saying:

“There have been a number of times where young schoolgirls have had their pictures taken from Facebook and posted on child porn websites with graphic descriptions underneath.

“But this is a rare enough case where the girls are in sexual positions and are being shared by young men in Ireland.

“Some of these photographs are incredibly explicit. They are not just photographs of girls undressed.

“Some are so graphic that I can’t go into detail.”

Reports indicate that many of the pictures came from Snapchat, an app which destroys images after 10 seconds.

Unfortunately a way to override this self-destruct setting has been discovered which is allowing perverts to save and share the images.
