DOJ called out for looking other way

Loretta Lynch US Attorney GeneralAn anti-pornography organization is trying to rally the troops to nudge the Department of Justice to do its duty.

Each year the National Center on Sexual Exploitation issues a Dirty Dozen List of organizations responsible for trafficking of human beings and pornography.

The Department of Justice has been listed among them for four years running because it refuses to prosecute illegal pornography.

Dani Bianculli of the National Center's law center says the Obama administration has yet to present an obscenity case in the past seven years.

"So the Department of Justice is literally turning a blind eye to an entire criminal organization," he tells OneNewsNow.

The administration has its priorities, he says, and those policies affect what it wants to enforce, which does not include obscenity laws.

"But this isn't really their call to make," Bianculli argues. "The Supreme Court has ruled time and time again that obscenity is not a First Amendment issue. In fact, it's completely excluded from the First Amendment and is not protected speech."
