"Whenever an ideologist makes a value judgment about someone with whom he is debating with that character, the judgment is true about himself", is what the so-called Law of Sargon expresses and which represents the irony behind many situations that occur today in day. In July 2017, Peter Bright, technology reporter and editor of Ars Technica, made a post through his Twitter account, where he wrote: "Anime is for pedophiles."
At the time, the publication generated little virality since he was not a very relevant personality in the media, however, like wine, that statement aged too well, since in May 2019, Peter Bright was arrested in a public park during a sting operation after an agent posed as the mother of a 7-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy online.
"Over the course of hundreds of chat communications, Bright discussed with the undercover agent his plan to meet with minors for sexual activity," the FBI noted. The man asked for photos of the children and said he intended to abuse them according to the feds.
The FBI said it initially found Bright on KinkD, a social media platform for BDSM fetishists. Bright's defense claimed that he was participating in a "role play" with consenting adults on both sides, and when he suspected he was dealing with a real mother who offered with her minor children, he claimed that he decided to collect evidence to hand over to police officers. order, but the judge did not believe it.
After a series of delays in his trial stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, Judge Castel sentenced Bright to 144 months in prison on November 4, as stated by the Inner City Press on Twitter.
