Recent advances in technology have made it difficult to stop the distribution of child pornography, which has flourished due to the anonymity of the Internet. However, technology is usually a double-edged sword. “We actually want to use the technology against the pornographers,” said New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday, June 29. Cuomo held a press conference at Jericho Middle/High School to discuss his initiative to protect children from pornographic images online.
