Radio Station Public Service Announcement Encourages Hiding Illegal Child Porn

According to a KVOA news report, Benson residents say they’re “disgusted” after hearing a public service announcement that urges people to “hide” their child pornography.
“It’s wrong, it should be taken down, it’s sickening,” said Jeanne Dyer, who lives in Benson.

An excerpt from the PSA states “Never keep paper pictures, tapes or films of naked juveniles where anyone else can find them. A public service message from the CAVE 97.7 FM.”
The PSA has been broadcasting on CAVE 97.7 FM for two years in the midnight and early morning hours. Paul Lotsof owns and manages the Benson-based radio station, and the PSA is part of his own agenda to change the laws concerning possession of child pornography.

In Arizona law, it’s called “Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.” It’s a Class 2 Felony and 10-24 year prison sentence per violation. Penalties are intensified if the child is under 15 years old.

“There’s no picture in the world that’s that dangerous,” Lotsof said.

Really Mr. Lotsof?? Do you know what the child had to go through to have those pornographic pictures taken of them? Did you know children are kidnapped, strapped down, tortured and raped in order for you to get off on yourself Mr, Lotsof? How is this pervert still in business? How has Paul Lotsof not been run out of town forever?

Good on Arizona for having strong laws against child pornography that deter pedophilia perverts from peeping at pubescent children! Everyone give Arizona a big round of applause!
Lotsof claimed there’s nothing wrong with possessing such images.

“They’re minors, they’re pictures of minors and you go to prison for the rest of your life for possessing them,” he said.
Officials with the Federal Communication Commission say there’s no regulation explicitly stating what can or cannot be aired when it comes to public service announcements.

As for Lotsof, he maintains his position that state and federal laws need to be changed. He claims he’s doing the community a service.

Lotsof said there’s a difference between distribution and creation of child porn and possession.

“The difference is one case, you’re molesting children and abusing them, causing children to do things that are not natural for children to do and the other case, they’re just possessing pictures. There’s no connection between those two,” he said.

What an idiot!! If you are buying it and viewing it, you are a co-conspirator in the crime of molestation!

When asked if he possesses child porn, Lotsof said no but emphasized he wouldn’t admit to it even if he did.

It is unthinkable that this public service announcement has been playing on Cave 97.7 FM for two years! Did you hear that? TWO YEARS!!! Where are the local law enforcement? Why hasn’t this station been shut down and Paul Lotsof locked up for being a felony accomplice?

Who wants to see Lotsof’s radio station shut down and see Lotsof put away in jail for being a danger to children? Please share this post with the hashtag #LockUpLotsof and sign this petition immediately! Do not delay. Act as if your child’s life depended on it, because someone’s child is depending on you.
