Among those arrested were 40 school teachers, nine doctors and nurses, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors and priests and three foster parents, she said.

Citing a particularly egregious example, she said police found over 350,000 images and over 9,000 videos of child sexual abuse in the home of a retired Canadian school teacher. Some of the images were of children known to the man and he was also charged with sexually abusing a child relative.

The inspector said an indispensable aspect to the success of the operation and the rescue of 386 children from child exploitation was the expansive cooperation between Toronto police and organizations worldwide.

“[This] confirms that when we work together regardless of the borders that divide us we can successfully take down those who not only prey on our most vulnerable but also profit from it,” she said.

Police said the children were "rescued from child exploitation" but did not give more details.

Way was charged with 24 counts, including possession of, distribution of, and importing and exporting child pornography.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests could be made, police said.

America's Prisons Have Turned Into Really Awful Nursing Homes

America's Prisons Have Turned Into Really Awful Nursing Homes | up2-21 | Scoop.it
The number of aging prisoners in America is booming.

Haley Finley's curator insight, January 12, 2014 8:41 PM

Not many people think of what happens to criminals once they are given a life sentence or a very long sentence. American prisons have turned into bad nursing homes full of nurses and doctors who have the qualfications but not the resources. Many of the elderly people in prisons need serious health care, like any other elderly person, but the medical staff has neither the resources or time to give it to them. Some have suggested a release of criminals once they reach a certain age because their health care becomes a burden and taxpayers have to pay for it.
