http://www.newsarama.com/comics/050921-CBLDF.html It isn't even clear if it truly was drawings of "pre-teens"; from the comments to the article that follow, the drawings depicted sex between characters that "could" be underage. In other words, like with basically any manga available, as basically all girls look underage in manga. It's chilling what a country the US is. Even if it was lolicon or shotacon, it was still just drawings. I really don't like lolicon/shotacon myself but, nonetheless, I can see such a complete difference between child porn and lolicon/shotacon. Child porn is beyond terrible but when someone likes lolicon and/or shotacon, it does NOT EVEN mean the person is a pedophile. And if the person IS a pedophile, better that that person would look at should-be legal drawings than ending up looking at horrifying child porn, instead. Why can't people see the difference between lolicon/shotacon and child porn? Why are people so fucking stupid? God I HATE this world. Take note that the article says that the guy was a collector. I bet he just obsessively collected all sorts of manga books and drawings, and for that he got fifteen years. If he's just another innocent person to be thrown into prison in the US, I hope he takes his life, soon, so he won't have to go through this shit any longer.
