Google scans emails – detected child porn, man arrested

Google handed over child porn images which they detected being sent from a Gmail account in Houston. John Henry Skillern was arrested by local police and after searching other devices they found more child porn.

He has been charged with one count of possession of child pornography and bail is set at $200,000.

Google has not yet commented on the incidence but over the past years the search giant has stepped up the efforts to remove child porn from search results and work closely with authorities to crack down on these criminals.

While people often have privacy concerns with Google, here is a case where you can only applaud the company.
